Stern Gets Ellen, Kara DioGuardi To Kiss At Idol Audition
HOLLYWOOD (CAP) - Howard Stern got off to a good start during his audition to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol, convincing fellow judges Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi to make out on camera.
"It was pretty hot," admitted fellow judge Randy Jackson.
The incident occurred during a screen test for the radio shock jock to see how he would interact with the other judges, during which Stern almost immediately began badgering DeGeneres and DioGuardi to make out.
"C'mon, just one kiss. I won't be able to concentrate on the contestants unless we get this out of the way," Stern can be seen saying on the audition tape, which was acquired by TMZ.com. "Make out for 30 seconds and we can all get on with our day."
"OK, now with tongues," he added when they finally acquiesced, prompting a three-minute kissing and fondling session.
"Excuse me, I'm trying to sing Pants on the Ground up here!" exhorted contestant General Larry Platt, who was brought back specifically for Stern's audition. But Platt could not get the judges' or crew's attention over all the hooting as DeGeneres and DioGuardi groped each other.
"Pants on the Ground - I think the Ground is in my Pants!" Stern finally responded. "Oh wait, that's my erection."
"Wow, that was really the last thing I expected to happen," said Ellen afterwards. "Not that Kara and I haven't both clearly been thinking about it non-stop since the fist day I walked in here. I'm just saying."
DeGeneres said it wasn't the type of thing she'd usually do, but that she hasn't been herself since her dog was euthanized out of spite. DioGuardi admitted that it's the type of thing she does "all the time."
"I mean, just look at me," she said.
The incident is likely to fuel critics already concerned about Stern's involvement with Idol - a show watched by millions of families and children. "I don't watch American Idol to see porn stars pleasuring themselves," said "Pasty White," a commenter on the LA Times Ministry of Gossip blog. "That's why I watch the E! channel."
And Darlene Fortenski of the watchdog group Mothers Against Everything (MAE) was actually reduced to an almost catatonic state by the Stern audition clip, shaking and muttering "The children ... the children ..."
"Darlene Fortenski - I'm pretty sure I got her to take her top off once," responded Stern. "Hey Ellen, how about taking your top off? C'mon, take it off. Your top. Off."
"I'll take my top off, Howard!" interjected DioGuardi, and then she and Ellen started kissing again.
"This is almost too easy," said Stern.
