Tonight’s Top Topic: Do you think American Idol votes were rigged?
There was a world record set for the amount of votes cast on American Idol with almost 100 million cast during the finale involving Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.
The New York Times is reporting that Kris Allen may have received help from corporate sponsor AT&T. In the Times report was mentioned that AT&T supplied phones with free text messaging at two Kris Allen parties in his hometown of Conway, Arkansas the night of the finals. The report also states they taught the people how to send power messages which send ten votes at once. No similar effort was made for Adam Lambert fans. American Idol officials state the results were fair, accurate and verified. (How did they verify 100 million votes?)
Morgan read a statement from AT&T. Fred asked was it Idol that wanted Kris Allen to win and not Adam Lambert. Or AT&T that did not want a gay American Idol contestant to win. Morgan also asked why wouldn’t you want Adam Lambert to win and does it have something to do with his sexuality. (There are two pictures of Adam Lambert kissing another guy but he has never stated he was gay.) Morgan said he (Adam Lambert) has not come out yet and everyone takes stupid pictures.
Fred stated he did think American Idol is rigged but not by people with cell phones in Arkansas.
Morgan provided a quick fix for women’s body flaws. Its all in the bra. She quoted Linda Becker, known as the Bra Lady of New York City who said 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. (Any women who need their size checked, Fred will check it for them Free.) Bra straps should not fall off your shoulders. Fred said they can be really complicated to use. (Especially for guys trying to remove them during a date.) Morgan said “Hoist them up, Lock ’em & load them.”
If you have tingning, burning or numbness in your legs you might have Tingling thigh syndrome. (or something else that can not be discussed on a family tv show.) The medical term is “meralgia paresthetica” which is a nerve condition. It applies to pregnant women as well as construction workers and police. Now it is being seen in increasing number of younger women from simply wearing jeans that are way too tight. (But look fabulous!)
The Edge crew also presented a report that drinking Red Bull can cause you to fail a drug test. Fred stated during the report that “I don’t do drugs. Never did drugs.” he went on to say he does though worry about taking drug tests.
(Just to be clear it has been very public it is a rumour that Red Bull will cause you to fail a drug test. In fact, it is not true. A friend of mine drinks it every morning and has never failed a drug test. Also he provided the link that explains it. CLICK HERE.)
They showed pictures of Baby Alva who they said looked like Baby Fred. (Sorry missed who Baby Alva was)
We then got to see Mark Mathis at the Planet Beach Tanning Salon. Mark pointed to the room for Fred called Uranus. Morgan remarked about Mark’s orange Ommpah Loompah look. Fred said maybe he drinks too much Red Bull.
