Rosie O’Donnell Reaches Out to Ousted American Idol Contestant
Just last Thursday, Danny Noriega (of the great voice and somewhat flamboyant effeminate charm) failed to gather enough votes to keep him on American Idol - the door to his TV singing career closed. But on Friday, Rosie O’Donnell opened a window.
In a video blog post created the day after Noriega’s elimination, the former talk show host invited him to join her (and several famous friends) on a cruise. The offer includes a free cruise for him and a friend, which leaves from San Diego this Saturday to sail toward Puerto Vallarta. She’s requested him to sing “Tainted Love” with Cyndi Lauper, who will be allegedly also be on board. O’Donnell called him “bold and brave and beautiful” and ended her entry by imploring him again to join her.
This is a great deal. Free cruise, and he gets to meet Rosie O and Cyndi Lauper. If I were in Danny’s shoes, I would take the trip in a minute. If I were Rosie, I would probably try to use my celebrity status to meet my favorite Idols. But, as I am neither of them, I shall simply report upon these developments as they unfold. So, Danny…you going to take her offer, or what?
