Is She Quitting?
She’s the contestant who’s favored to win but…Crystal Bowersox was ready to quit the competition a couple of weeks ago!! According to TMZ.com, it went down in the parking lot after American Idol in front of a couple of witnesses. She told Ryan Seacrest she can’t handle the competitionand doesn’t like all the attention, so what’s the point? Plus, she wants to go back to Ohio where her family and son are because she misses them terribly. But Ryan talked her out of it, saying it’s like starting a business. He told her, if she won, she’d get a recording contract and she’d be a millionaire. He says one of the greatest things that ever happened to him was to make enough money to buy his mom a house and she could do the same. Obviously, she decided to stay IN the competition.
