Kara DioGuardi - this month's Celebrity Home Showcase

This a picture of Kara DioGuardi, and my girlfriend Laura Thompson, at The Connected Celebrity Gift Suite that The Trendy Bed show cased their bedding.   I must say Kara was very friendly and stood and talked to Laura and I about the contestants on last season’s American Idol.   Laura was just a little star struck when I said,   “smile for a picture”.
