Lopez’s first attempt at joining Idol failed last month because her demands had reportedly gotten “out of hand.”

Lopez signed her $12 million contract  two weeks after DioGuardi confirmed she was leaving the show, just like both Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres.

Lopez was reportedly hoping for other movie and TV contracts, along with a higher Idol salary. She also wanted a say in who her co-judges would be, but when Fox wouldn’t agree, she settled for the $12 million (only?!).

A source close to Lopez claimed,“She’s very excited.”  Fox and Lopez’s reps made no comments.

There’s no official news on who the other judges would be. Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler said he will “probably” be a judge. Harry Connick Jr., Shania Twain, Chris Isaak, and Elton John were also rumored to be judges.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
