"I literally discovered Kara and believed in her, we had lunch together and I told her that if she wants to give two weeks notice, I would move a stranger into my own home," Fox News quoted her as saying at the AMA nominations.
"She lived with me and we became the best roommates, we never fought, except she would sleep walk and eat. I'd wake up in the morning and I thought 'did my dog do this?' There was food on the ground. 'What the heck?' I thought. But she would have no recollection that she did it," she added.
Last year DioGuardi admitted to having suffered a binge eating disorder in her younger years and acquired professional help in a treatment facility. The judge also told Extra that she would get up in the middle of the night and attempt to drown out her emotions by stuffing down food.
Washington (ANI): Former 'American Idol' judge Paula Abdul has revealed that Kara DioGuardi, who became the fourth judge on the show, had once raided her fridge because of her Sleep Eating Disorder. Abdul, 47, who discovered the songwriter-turned-reality star ten years ago, and had also shared a house with 38-year-old DioGuardi, was puzzled when her food disappeared.
