FOX DIGS FOR DIRT

An independent counsel hired by Fox is investigating claims by onetime American Idol contestant Corey Clark that judge Paula Abdul privately coached him in singing as well as in the art of love. (OK, the counsel uses more formal terminology.) Although the final report likely won't be filed before production begins on Idol's fourth season, Fox Entertainment president Peter Liguori maintains, "At this point, we have nothing [to indicate Paula] shouldn't be showing up for work." Abdul says she doesn't mind being probed, but usually likes to be taken to dinner first. For (way too much) more on this, as well as other Fox news, check out Michael Ausiello's latest Television Critics Association press tour diary entry.
