    This is old news.

    I guess you needed something controversial for the weekend to generate more hits for your site.

    Here’s what Ryan Seacrest had to say about Jeff Archuleta:

    “And let me say this about Jeff. He’s always been very kind to me. I’ve talked to him in the elevator. We just talked about general things, you know, what do you like about L.A., how are you doing here with the competition, are you enjoying yourself?

    “And he’s been very cordial, very sweet, very nice. I’ve never seen him do anything wrong. But there were stories — and I don’t have the official story. There were stories that they removed him backstage because he was coaching too much.”

    I seem to be the only visitor who bothers to comment here, and I am tired of you calculatingly bringing up these old controversies.

    Bye bye, “archuletafan”! What a true fan you are!

    Bye bye, Ken and Barbie in the news studio. Remember to get a spray tan during the weekend. I think you weren’t orange enough today, and that just might affect the ratings negatively. And we don’t want that, do we?
