Gossip! – Ellen out at Idol

Ellen is following Simon out the door.

Well, they come. They go. Ellen DeGeneres has announced she’s out at Idol. In a just released statement she says: “A couple months ago, I let FOX and the “American Idol” producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on ‘Idol’ and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.” A.K.A. “See ya. Hate to be ya.” Oh…and Jennifer Lopez is rumored to be taking her seat.
