* DIOGUARDI'S SHOCK AT IDOL CALL-UP New AMERICAN IDOL judge KARA DIOGUARDI was so surprised to be offered the job that she nearly fell off her chair. The music producer was stunned to be given the post, but insists she will add to the chemistry of the TV talent show. And she is determined to get on with her fellow judges - including Paula Abdul, with whom she collaborated on Kylie Minogue's hit Spinning Around. Speaking about the moment she was offered the role, DioGuardi says, I almost fell off the chair and adds that she hopes to create a new chemistry as well as keeping the old. And asked how she felt about judging wannabe pop stars, she says, I'm a little nervous. I'm going to be a straight shooter and say it like I see it and maintain that philosophy. I'm somebody who's really honest and gives an opinion. If I feel I need to be hard, I will be. And if I feel I need to be more nurturing, I will be.
