General: Stables a judge?

SANDRA ROBERTS COLUMN
Shock jock Iain Stables has some shock news for wannabe singing stars.

Insiders tell me the ZM host is the new hanging judge on NZ Idol, replacing lippy Paul Ellis.

Bad boy Stables has been in front of a judge or too in his time so knows how it all works. He's so shocking that once a judge had to turn and face the wall for a minute to regain her composure as he sat there sweating in his Chewbacca suit debating over whether it was acceptable to expose one's buttocks to 20,000 concertgoers while someone kissed it.

Stables also once called another radio station and suggested to drivers stuck in traffic that they could relieve their boredom by playing with themselves.

Stables is never too far from trouble.

He'll be out there, he'll be lippy and he's bound to draw a crowd. All the ingredients necessary for Idol 3 when it starts later this year

I'll do my best

I'll do my best ;)

This guy Stables has

This guy Stables has obviously been chosen for his obnoxius factor. I get kinda weary of judges on shows like this who tend to have ego's as big as Godzilla making insenstive comments about people, many of whom have a ton of talent.  That guy Ellis was a cretin and an exploiter and my only dissappointment is that he hasn't yet walked in front of a Kenworth.  

They haven't confirmed a

They haven't confirmed a replacement judge yet, they're doing auditions next week.

How come you know so much

How come you know so much nzidolgirl?  Do you work on the inside? :-)   And does that mean you will have more juicy goss for us?? :-))

Good, it never made sense that the judge would be Stables :)

Agreed!

Agreed! :)

That's what I thought!

That's what I thought!

He's a d*ck. I doubt this

He's a d*ck. I doubt this is true :-?

Yeah this will be great if it is true :D Stables would be wicked for the job!!! Cant wait to see if this is really true lol

I can't imagine South

I can't imagine South Pacific alienating every other radio station by adding Stables to the judging panel...

Would be a strange choice

Would be a strange choice I'm thinking especially for a 'family' show!  Maybe it is just 'talk'! Nothing official has been announced yet I take it.

Yeah right. But if he is..

Yeah right. But if he is.. well, that would be *interesting*

Do you guys all really

Do you guys all really believe this?  He announced on air that he was a NZ Idol judge before the first series.  It wasn't true then, and it won't be true now.

Not a fan of Stables. The

Not a fan of Stables.

The other day he had a rant about a theatre owner in Hawkes Bay allegedly refusing to show Brokeback Mountain.
They rang up Readings in Napier and asked if it was on. The girl said the reels hadn't arrived.
They hung up and whined on about "lost in the courier - yeah right" and "what a load of bollocks" etc etc.

So I decided to see if it was true.
I looked up the Reading Cinemas website.
The only Reading theatre to show it in the country was Courtenay Central......

Likewise the only Hoyts to show it was at Riccarton in ChCh, and the only Village Cinema in Auckland was at St Lukes and Queen St.

Basically if you live out of the main centres you aint getting Brokeback at the moment.

So I emailed Stables to point this out.
He goes "uh...we had a whole lot of calls and texts from people saying the manager was against playing it"
Riiiiight.

I see. And what does Stables

I see.

And what does Stables know about singing?

Yeah, I was thinking that

Yeah, I was thinking that too ...

Looks like the third series of Idol is going to be even more of a joke than the first two series! :( 

Maybe it'll get the Idols

Maybe it'll get the Idols played on ZM....

Ah well, it certainly won't

Ah well, it certainly won't mean I'll be switching to ZM, that's for sure!

OH. MY. GOD. Yeah, that's really shocking. My God, he braks the records of all other shock jocks with that. He's so shocking, eh?
