Approaching it's 12th season, the American Idol train may finally be coming off the tracks!
Ratings are "meh," judges are dropping like cray, and now showrunners have resorted to
drunk-dialing old girlfriends contestants.
They've already reached out to Taylor Hicks, Carrie Underwood, Clay Aiken, and Adam Lambert.
A show insider spoke about the ungluing. They said:
Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!
Things are looking up for Celebrity Apprentice champ Arsenio Hall!!
Not one - but THREE networks are interested in giving him a TV deal!
We know one the the networks is The Donald's home, NBC. One of the other's could be Arsenio's old stomping ground, FOX.
No word on what kind of show it would be, or what time it would come on. Howevs, we DO know they all want him!!
If Arsenio gets another talk show gig, he should cast his Apprentice runner up and new BFF Clay Aiken as his sidekick!!
One thing is for sure: Aubrey O'Day will not be asked to appear on his show, ever.

Wow! This was one craaaazyass season!
Last night The Donald
fired hired his forth celebrity.
For their final challenge the two remaining contestants, Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall, had to to create, host and sell tickets to a celebrity charity event that comes complete with a variety show and a charity-awareness ad.
So who won??
Was it the
washed-up late night talk show host, OR the American Idol runner-up?
Preeeees Plaaaaaay to see Trump announce the fifth Celebrity Apprentice (above),
OR if you're not into dramatic pauses and confetti cannons read who won…. AFTER THE JUMP!!!
We are starting to see what the Claymates see in their hero, Clay Aiken!!
The openly gay singer came on CBS's Face the Nation over the weekend to talk about North Carolina's Amendment One AND the President's endorsement of marriage equality.
Clay spoke eloquently as he dropped knowledge about the sentiments the citizens of his home state have toward gay marriage.
He told the political commentators:
Oh no he did not!! Rihanna's Navy is not gonna like this…
After asking which of today's pop stars wouldn't make it past round one of American Idol, Clay Aiken actually told Andy Cohen that it would probably be RiRi! And he blamed it on her "pitch problems!!!"
Now, in his defense, he was forced to answer these questions on Watch What Happens Live, but still!! Out of everyone, he chose Rih?? Really??
We can definitely think of a few others before her! But what do U think??
Play the video (above) and tell us!! Dish UR thoughts!!!
Kimberly Caldwell may not have become the next American Idol during season two of the hit singing competition, but she still managed to make a career out of it.
The singer, who shared the stage with Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard, has become a regular television personality and her most recent gig is the host of Oxygen's Best Ink — a show competition looking for the best tattoo artist. In a recent interview, Caldwell talked about her transition in Hollywood after getting the boot from Idol, saying:
If any of U fashionistas need something good to watch this Sunday, set your DVRs to NBC at 9pm!!
That's when Celebrity Apprentice contestants will be creating window displays for Ivanka Trump at upscale department store Lord & Taylor on Fifth Avenue!
The designer will of course be the judge, and the teams better show the footwear, handbags, outerwear, and ready-to-wear pieces in the most flattering light if they want to win!
Who are U rooting for?? Debbie Gibson? Clay Aiken???
