The best part of American idol, besides anytime that Paula speaks because you know you’re gonna get something drugged up and incoherent, the audition process has lost one of it’s greats. Alexis Cohen, 25-year-old former two-time “American Idol” contestant has been struck and killed by a car in a New Jersey shore town.
Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office says an autopsy indicated she suffered chest, head and abdominal injuries, which led them to believe that she was struck by a vehicle. Mohel says investigators are seeking more information about the collision. Cohen auditioned in Philadelphia for the popular Fox singing competition in August 2007, and the episode was aired in January 2008. She tried out again during the show’s eighth season.
This is pretty sad. My favorite part of American Idol is when you get the crazies in the beginning that know they’re stars. Alexis was a bit different though, yes she knew she was very talented, but she was an old cat lady in the making and it’s sad to see her go. I’ve included one of her audition segments from Idol, and yes during the video Simon Cowell says she looks like William Defoe , yes it was funny and slightly true,so enjoy because she would’ve wanted us to laugh…..tokes go out to her family and her pets…
Apparently her prescription salary demands were too crazy for FOX to handle because it doesn’t look like the straight-up singer will be sharing her medicated joy with America next season. Paula “I like pills” Abdul’s manager, David Sonenberg released a brief statement yesterday saying that, “it does not appear that Paula’s going to be back on Idol” next season because the singer and walking zombie judge hadn’t yet received a new contract from FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, the production companies behind the show. Sonenberg who has only been representing Abdul since June expressed his frustration adding
“I find it under these circumstances particularly unusual; I think unnecessarily hurtful. I find it kind of unconscionable and certainly rude and disrespectful that they haven’t stepped up and said what they want to do.”
This is pretty sad because although I dont watch AI religiously anymore I still take comfort in knowing that I can turn on my tv and see Paula’s special way of getting her points across which i’ve aptly named her “crazy jumbled pill speak gibberish.” If this was the show’s plan all along to just ditch Paula as the price of prescriptions rise thats awful dirty. 19 Entertainment has something else coming to them though if they think that Paula’s “prescription pals” are gonna take this one lying down with a sliced straw and some hard sniffing as usual. I can almost see it now, the “re-hire Paula campaign” to be sponsored by Abbott Pharm, the makers of Vicodin. OK, we dont really think that they are gonna let thier best trainwreck ratings draw leave the show. I kind of have the feeling that this will all be settled before filming for what seems like the 100th season of American Idol begins on August 6th. Don’t pop pills for fun, they can kill you people…embrace the burning trees and breathe in please… aka smoke some weed
