"Idol" Hottie Found on Dane Cook's Casting Couch

1/21/2009 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's one "Idol" contestant who's already been through Hollywood -- in fact she's already slept with a celebrity ... if you still consider Dane Cook a celebrity.

American Idol
Raquel Houghton, a 28-year-old "waitress/bartender," dated Cook for roughly three years, until the relationship suddenly ended in 2007 -- which happens to be right after "Employee of the Month" came out.

Coincidence? We think not.

Last weekend I saw My Best Friend's Girlfriend and it was one of the raunchiest but funny movies I've seen in a long time.

So what if he's a bit of a thief? Not like he stole all his jokes. All comedians borrow material from time to time.

Besides stand up comedy is all about presentation. Two people can tell the same joke and only one of them is funny.

Glad his brother stole his money---he deserved it...too bad he's now wrecked his entire family's relationships, direct and indirect relatives, for an entire Generation. A real funny thing to do...Ha Ha

Dane's B.A. and haters need to stick it
That being said, isn't there a rule about participating in American Idol if you've had a record contract? Raquel Houghton used to be the leas singer of a band called the Valli Girls which was signed with Columbia Records. Wasn't that the big deal with the Irish girl a few seasons ago? Someone needs to fact check and out that broad!! I heard her sing the Star Spangled Banner at one of his concerts and it was not great!

What is she wearing?? It looks like a pair of jeans with a belt hiked up over her boobs!! As for Dane Cook - well, he is absolutely the most unfunniest man on the planet...how he had millions that his brother got to steal and how people can find him funny is beyond me.

And to the comment - so what, commits "borrow" from each other all the time? Sorry, but real comedians do their OWN material, not someone else's.
