    The celebs are really coming out of the woodwork to reveal the pain they've experienced in their lives! First Ashley Judd and now former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi! DioGuardi is about to release her memoir on April 26th and she reveals she was molested as a child and date raped by a well-known music producer, according to E! Online.

    In the book, A Helluva High Note, DioGuradi opens up about a family friend's son who repeatedly molested her when she was only 11. "On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina," she writes. "I remember freezing and not knowing what to do." Wow. DioGuardi, like Ashley Judd in her recent memoir, is revealing all.

    DioGuardi also reveals how a well-known producer date raped her after dinner. "Within a few hours, he was on top of me, pumping, sweating, and speaking to me in Spanish, not a word of which I could understand," she says. Again, DioGuardi is really opening up about what she has experienced.

    DioGuardi kept mum since she feared it would negatively affect her career.

    DioGuardi, who was a judge on American Idol for a few years up until last season, is debuting a new show, Platinum Hit, on Bravo next month.

    What do you think of celebrity's who reveal so much personal information via memoirs?
