Is Courtney "Idol's" Next Train Wreck?

1/31/2007 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol's" Paula Abdul is as loopy as any big-time TV personality can hope to be (and still keep her job), but could "Idol" producers be replacing her with the one musical mama who's actually more likely to make an utter idiot of herself on national TV -- Courtney Love?
Paula Abdul and Courtney Love
Love told Usmagazine.com that she's been approached by "Idol" producers to appear on the show. What's more, a source says that Love might actually be supplanting Abdul, whose tenure as a judge has been studded with all manner of wackiness and scandal, including a well-traveled bout of nuttiness in local TV interviews last month. "Idol's" reps had no comment.

That's just child's play for Courtney, a woman who's done and displayed just about everything under the sun and her shirt to humiliate herself, including (allegedly) flinging mike stands, baring her breasts, and melting down at roasts. (Her reps could not be reached for comment.) And with a national stage of 30 million viewers a week, who knows what insanity awaits?

OMG! Why is American Idol choosing 'stoners' to be judges. First Paula and her weird out of control behavior - and now Courtney Love - That bitch is crazy ! she is probably going to show everybody her p***y and other private parts on national TV. Give me a break ! Between Paula and Courtney - we rather stick with slurred speech Paula Abdul...

I love Courntey, but it's just as amusing watching Paula now-a-days to see if she shows up tanked or not.

Standards are badly needed.    

Sure. Hire Courtney. She'll be minimum two hours late.
Daily. Like she was for court....
Make sure there's a late clause, the first of many...

OK. Replace one hot mess with an even bigger one? OK. That makes sense. No. Really!

Paula being replaced with the likes of the consummate loser Courtney Love? Courtney is definitely a substance abuser with a criminal record. Paula has talent, intelligence and personality. Courtney was short-changed in these areas, and then some. Besides, Courtney wouldn't know how to behave in an Idol situation anyway.

OMG! Courtney Love....that bitch is crazy! Between Paula and Courtney, I'd rather stick with Paula eventhough she is also messed up with her slurred words and speech.

I sure hope it was a hoax. And I agree with #3 -- Simon would never tolerate Love. It would make little to no sense to take Paula away from the show b/c she allegedly has certain problems, only to replace her with Courtney Love. Absolutely ridiculous. They've got a winning team & shouldn't mess with it.

Maybe with all of the attention that Paula's behavior has recently received, she'll do something about it. Yeah, I know she has exhibited such behavior before, but maybe this time'll be the charm.

I agree with nasty boil , its the end of days for idol . Talent is not that good . 34 million pre-teens tuning in because they feel empowered voting for and buying up " Idol " crap . I'll try and catch that hot 17 year old girl from North Carolina ( please God let her win ) but not to watch overhyped talent . idol and TMZ are whacky and crazy .

THIS FREAK SHOW HAS REPS?! I THOUGHT MS. LOVE WAS JUST SOME DRUGGED OUT HOOKER THAT ACCIDENTLY WALKED INTO A RECORDING STUDIO AND MADE A CD. IDOL IS SCARY ENOUGH WITH ADBUL ON IT, COURTNEY WOULD BE A TRAINWRECK!

Sure, hire this wench. I'm sure it is possible to make AI more of a freak show than it already is. At least now the judges can humiliate themselves as much as the contestants. Kinda puts them all on a level playing field.

Bring her on! I'm sure after one episode Simon and Randy won't know what hit them! Hell, these two will go running out of the audition room when Courtney gets done making a scene and an ass of herself in front everyone.

There have also been allegations that she may have a pill-popping problem. This would mean more to me if it weren't for the fact that she has Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, which from all I've read is quite searingly painful and difficult to treat. Given her background as a dancer--and someone who hasn't danced in public in many years--I find this quite believable.
