Kara DioGuardi gets Bravo docu-series in addition to 'Platinum Hit'
Kara DioGuardi is set to receive a second Bravo reality show, tentatively titled "KARA."
The 40-year-old songwriter and former "American Idol" judge is already set to judge the cable network's songwriting competition series "Platinum Hit," which also features the singer Jewel and which debuts on May 30.
"KARA" is a docu-series that follows DioGuardi's life and work in the music busness. It it currently being developed and no release date has been announced.
"I am excited to broaden my relationship with Bravo" DioGuardi said in a statement released by Bravo and obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I am a fan of the network and appreciate how their programming gives the audience a birdseye view into different industries and really uncovers what makes people tick."
DioGuardi has made millions of dollars from the songs she has written and helped write, including Enrique Islegias' hit single "Can't Escape My Life" and "Sober" by Pink. DioGuardi said on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show last month that the two wrote the latter track while they were drunk.
DioGuardi first appeared on"American Idol" in 2009, joining veteran judges Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson. DioGuardi left the show in 2010 amid declining ratings. FOX then revamped the series with two new judges - Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.DioGuardi has said that her time as a judge on "American Idol" was "torture" and almost prompted her to buy undergarments by the Depend brand, which manufactures adult diapers, due to anxiety over possibly wetting herself from nerves.
She details her experiences on the FOX singing contest series in her new book, "A Helluva High Note: Surviving Life, Love, and 'American Idol,'" which was released on Tuesday, April 26 and also contains stories of her past sexual abuse.
