Kara's 'Idol' Nemesis -- It Was All an Act

1/16/2010 2:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Andrew Fenlon: Click to listenAndrew Fenlon -- the "smartass" Kara DioGuardi ripped into and threatened to spank on "American Idol" -- now says his d-bag demeanor was just for kicks.

The bespectacled brat called into The Morning MIX with Scott McKenzie at MIX 105.1 in Orlando yesterday where he said he acted like an ass so he would stand out more ... and get some prime TV time.

Fenlon also claims he would have made it to Hollywood if he would have played it straight for the judges -- so check out his audition, which is replayed during the interview, and tell us ...

anyone who thinks he's faking is an idiot and needs a crash course in spotting psychopaths, asap. I'm from newton, ma, i've run into this guy and he's like that 24/7, he's a genuine d-bag, hard and true. Of course he's saying it was just for show, now the whole country is making fun of him, instead of just everyone he's ever met.
but don't get me wrong, you should feel bad for him, seriously, the guy has genuine issues. he's so obnoxious and self-centered that no one can stand to be in the same room with him for a second. and his ego is so wacked out that he may never be able to even understand, nevermind address, how big and pathetic of an a-hole he really is. it's sad. and yes, i expect to see him to be on the news someday for killing someone, and i thought that long before this AI debut.
Again people, those of you who think he's faking his weirdness or exagerating really need to take a psych course, before you're a psycho's jackass victim.

I cannont stand Kara. I almost vomited when she said 'you need a spanking" a very sexual ickey thing to say to a serial looking man. She is trying so hard to be controversial and honestly, I stopped watching that night. I miss Paula!!!!
Please reprimand Kara for those erie words! If Simon said that to a girl contestant it would be ALL OVER THE PRESS!

why?    

I think this guy really is a douce-bag. listen to his interview one minute it was an act and then he says he was really annoyed. I think he is weird and looks like someone that is ready to boil over and go postal on a mutha. He is not a bad looking guy, but there is something lacking like the glass is only 3/4 full.

thanks for posting that link! OMG, 2 minutes after she meets Andrew, Kara wants to spank him?! what the H? sounds like some serious lusting on Kara's part(which is understandable cuz he's very cute) and now she wants him all to herself so she won't let him go to Hollywood! dammit Kara!

I thought right away this was a set-up because he has a nice body and looks like a male model with some glasses who wants to be an actor.

Actually if you look at the photo posted with this article, he looks a lot like Rob Lowe circa 1985 with those horn-rimmned glasses that were in style back then.

I can't stand Kara, she has absolutely no personality or warmth.

I was pleasantly surprised by Victoria Beckham; yes she is reserved and doesn't smile big, but she is very poised and I thought she made a sincere effort to make a positive and sincere compliment to the contestants that had poor auditions who felt a little down. I think she made comments only when she really felt she had something constructive to say, unlike Kara with her big mouth who says things just to hear herself talk. Kara has no class; Victoria does.

All you people have stars in your eyes yet no talent. So if you act like an azz, it gets you more TV time? Whomever started this Reality mess needs to be thrown in a wood chipper. This kind of activity continues to make the culture not just douchebags but a busload of retards who shouldn't be allowed to procreate.

I can see this guy becoming the next William Hung. Or at the very least, another Forbes Graham.
