'Idol' Contestant Talks About Missing Mom

1/29/2010 1:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Angela Martin -- the "American Idol" contestant whose "A.I." dreams have been derailed twice by personal turmoil -- just appeared on the Ryan Seacrest radio show to make another plea to find her missing mother.

Angela Martin: Click to listen

Martin's story is heartbreaking: She's made it to Hollywood twice before auditioning again this season -- but both times, she left the show early. Her father was murdered during her "Idol" run in 2007 and in 2008 she had to quit because of a court appearance.

Now Angela has made it to Hollywood again -- but this accomplishment has been marred by the mysterious disappearance of her mother Viola Brown Martin -- who went missing the day after a family Christmas dinner back in December.

6. Hey Mr. ToRoger- Guess your two Master's ed didn't include spelling. Douchebag with an "E."

As an white observer, everything else in the sentence was spelled correctly, including other big words, but even if they weren't, it makes you sound like an unintelligent twit, because it's a well-known fact in the intelligence community, for instance, that many brilliant doctors and surgeons can't spell. Like all the people who may spell well and know all their punctuation rules,it means that they memorized and studied to know the proper spelling and English rules. It shows they have average intelligence, nothing more. Many of them don't know diddly about math and science and are not creative thinkers. Although some of them are smart in math and science also, many of them are not.
(Notice I said well-known fact in the intelligence community, not the Sarah Palin community)

There seems to be an awful lot going on with this family. Are they drug sellers or something?? Certainly not normal to have all this tragedy...someone must be out to get them.

For the record... @michealacarterallen

I didnt reply to ur post in which you went overboard on my post. That was not me, someone else.
I was just sayin that the word "ignorant" is alot played out and overused. That somehow makes me hateful... right. Guess I cant have an opinion, o well.

No. I mean like doctors, scientists, physicists, biologists, architectural engineeers, electrical engineers, surgeons, chemists, and people like that. Many of them can't spell sometimes.
