American Idol also-ran

Julia DeMato has made the transition from household name to D-list celeb in record time. The 24-year-old diva-in-training has been appointed a celebrity judge on Meow TV, a reality show in which human contestants come up with creative ways to entertain cats. (That sound you hear is Kimberly Caldwell purring with delight.) The first episode airs Friday at 7:30 pm/ET on Oxygen, although DeMato's stint doesn't begin until the second installment.
