    American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi has long been rumored to be "out" at the show and that it will only be a matter of time before producers at Fox gave the songwriter/Warner Bros. A&R rep the axe. However, DioGuardi apparently has wanted to leave the show for over two months, according to reports by E! The producers of the show have left her in a bit of limbo.

    "She's ready to move on. She did two years and thinks that's enough," says a source close to the situation. However, DioGuardi may still be contractually obligated to remain with the show, and Fox has not given her a definitive answer on her status. They are certainly (and unfairly) leaving DioGuardi hanging with this treatment. Fox is certainly the one pulling the strings in this situation.

    Is it best for DioGuardi and Idol to part ways and move on with their lives?
