Well that didn’t last long. Ellen Degeneres is quitting “American Idol” as judge, effective now. Remember, she did say she wouldn’t do the show without Simon Cowell. Maybe that’s the real reason?
She does have her own morning talk show. Maybe she felt that doing two different shows at the same time was too overwhelming for her and she wanted the evenings off for herself?
Either that, or even she thinks American Idol sucks.
