Kara DioGuardi Strikes Back At Abdul Comments

American Idol 2009‘s new judge, Kara DioGuardi, didn’t take kindly to Paula Abdul‘s comments yesterday that having a fourth judge, “doesn’t work.” DioGuardi expressed her disappoint over the harsh words:

“Paula has a right to her opinions, but I was disappointed by her comments, and hurt that she did not address them to me in person.”

“I am proud of my contributions to the show, and remain excited about the rest of the season.”

Paula’s rep tried to clean things up by claiming that Paula had meant other fourth Idol judges. I’m not buying it. What about you?
