Apparently Ms. Cericola has some personal issues that she needs to learn how to deal with instead of lashing out at an innocent AI contestant. Personally, I am THRILLED for Constantine and I'll be very disappointed if he DOESN'T sing.

Hmmm. Does this writer have issues? Constantine "wow"ed 'em all summer on the AI tour, and has demonstrated grace and talent under bigtime pressures. A show on ABC sounds like someone at the network was paying attention, and knew that people would watch. =Especially= to hear him sing.

Congratulations, Constantine, on landing this show.

I say stand back and let the man do his thing.

Wow Rachel.. what's really eating you? Does Con remind you of some guy that blew you off at happy hour or something? Gosh, it's just a TV show and guess what.. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WATCH IT! I'll bet there's other TV shows you could watch instead! Or maybe.. here's an idea! Try reading a book. Use your energy for something more positive and maybe you'll have some friends!

Ms. Cericola must have been under the weather when she wrote this. Otherwise, why would she insult Kelsey Grammar, one of the most talented people we've seen on television? To saw that he was hypnotized is like saying he didn't know what he was doing. Maybe Cericola needs to expand her horizons a little and then listen to Constantine sing. She will be pleasantly surprised and might even enjoy herself.

I do have issues. Deep ones. I have issues with the fact that they give out TV shows like Cracker Jack prizes. And like those Cracker Jack prizes, they ain't what the used to be. Most of them SUCK.

As far as Kelsey Grammer goes. My guess is that he is back on the coke. But you are all correct. Constantine (will NEVER call him Con) has an audience. Enjoy your ham salad, everyone.

And thanks for reading!

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 19:18:23 -05:00

Mzybe you should do a better job at proofreading - "your" not "you" ham salad. Yep, your writing skills certainly impress me!

Someone your age really shouldn't be eating Cracker Jack for the candy coated popcorn or for the prizes...try carrot sticks! Much healthier and it might take care of that constipation problem of yours.

It's interesting that someone who writes for a TV site continues to insult an actor/comedian who has won MANY Emmys for his TV work. I guess it just explains your bad (or lack of) taste.

And btw - we don't care if you call him Con or not, and I doubt he cares either!

Comment from Rachel

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 19:21:12 -05:00

WOW -- you are fast Amused. I was just correcting that and you beat me to it.

Thanks for reading!

Yo. So who died and made you Einstein? Actors act. That's what they do. Have you ever spoken with Constantine in person? Was he not courteous and polite? And you don't know what all transpired for the birthing of this show, it could have been a long long labor of love. Hope your boss reads your comments...... If you expect people to respect your opinion, you might try saying something a little less poisonous.

Comment from Wanda

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 19:28:00 -05:00

To each his own Rachel. Not everybody loved Elvis or the Beatles either!

Constantine has the talent to be THE Entertainer of this millenium and I'm sorry that your missing the ride he's giving us (his loyal fans)!!! I love everything about Constantine and can't wait for his TV show, album and any other gig he chooses to entertain us.

Comment from Kahuna

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 19:29:19 -05:00

Tell us Rachel. Who do you think is talented and worthy of a TV show if not Constantine? Constantine is a once in a life time singing talent that I hold among the greats of my era. And trust me. There were many many more greats in my era than there are in yours. Your problem is that you have never seen or heard a great pop singer because there aren't any currently. You have nothing and no one to compare him with. Your deprived life is on display for all to see.

Comment from Jennifer

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 19:31:13 -05:00

Some people need to get out more often.

Constantine will be around for many, many years acting and singing. He's already a household name!

Congratulations CON! Well deserved!

Comment from Dave

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 20:09:28 -05:00

Are you supposed to be a writer? If so where's this story you are talking about. There's nothing there to be a story, just a bunch of insignicant, poisonous words.

Comment from Emma

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 20:14:36 -05:00

I hope you are not being paid to write "articles" like this because someone is wasting his or her money. Constantine has millions of fans who love his singing. If you'd kept track of the 41 American Idol concerts all across America this summer, with 10,000 to 20,000 attending each one, you'd realize that he was one of the most popular--if not THE most idolized--singer who performed in this venue. I am thrilled that he'll be on my TV again every week in the near future. I'm trying to figure out who your audience is. On the American Idol message boards, there were a few "trolls" who had a similar tone in bashing all the singers. They were usually 12- to 15-year-old boys who didn't know what to do with their testosterone and had nothing better to do that create mayhem. Perhaps these guys are your audience? If so, you all deserve each other.

Oh ... my. Rach, I think you've touched the soft underbelly of the zeitgeist.

The person who should have gotten a show (and won AI #1 -- even though I still think Kelly is awesome), is Tamyra. "House is Not a Home" baby!

Comment from sheila

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 21:20:19 -05:00

Why do people get off on being mean to others? Shouldn't we be happy for the blessings that come upon one person? Or is being mean a way to deal with such insecurities and jealousies?

Comment from Paul

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 21:41:23 -05:00

OK, Rachel, they're handing out TV shows like prizes in a Cracker Jack box. But what makes this guy any less qualified to be the star of a TV show than any other 'aspiring' star? He can sing, he can act. That's more than you can say for most of the would-be stars on TV these days. Well, I think he can sing, you don't. And even you've got to admit, he's got fans. Obviously.

Comment from Rachel

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 21:57:05 -05:00

Paul: I wish I had a prize to give you. All I can give you is props. You are 100% correct. The guy definitely has fans... I will admit it. And I will also admit that people will obviously watch his show. I just don't have to like it -- as others don't have to like my writing.

Thanks for reading!

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 23:25:01 -05:00

Peoples' personal tastes in anything/anyone so often confound us! Obviously you don't share so many folks' delight - yes, delight - in Constantine. As one who appreciates his showmanship and singing (yep), I'm happy I'll be seeing him again. Looks like lots of folks will be happy too. Be nice, Rachel ;)

Comment from Rori

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 00:19:20 -05:00

It's one thing to say you do not want to watch the show, it is quite another, Miss Rachel, to say it is making you physically sick.

I look forward to watching you eat your words.

Comment from Holly

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 01:33:42 -05:00 will be fun to watch Constantine make it big and then remember peope like Rachel...You've got some issues

Comment from Keri

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 12:04:36 -05:00

Out of all the absolute crap on TV, Im thrilled to see someone who is as all-around talented as Constantine Maroulis get a TV show. This guy is the whole package: actor, singer, stage presence, good-looking, has fans falling at his feet. What MORE could you ask for from someone for a television show?? Do a little research before you backhand someone so quickly. Sheesh! He will succeed FAR more than any other contestant on the oh-so-rigged AI4.

Comment from Darlene

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 12:15:44 -05:00

Hey Rachel, If it is so easy to get a TV show, where is yours, oh yeah Mary Hart has it....take out your frustrations on someone else, Constantine is a hard working young man who, like other entertainers, has waited a long time for a break, he finally gets one and mean spirited people like you are foaming at the mouth to tear it away from him. His fans knew all this would happen a long time ago. Just wait, it has only begun!

Comment from Michele

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 12:32:56 -05:00

Wow, I really can't beleive that someone has such a bad opinion of Con and his fans. I have never been involved with anything like this before and love the whole experience but I have been amazed at how bitter some people like you are. Why can't you let Con and his fans enjoy all that is going on without feeling the need to critisise him.Does it really matter that you don't like him, just don't watch him but please don't spoil it for him and his fans.He has worked hard and deserves it all and more. Perhaps anger management might help you.

Comment from Blanche

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 13:09:11 -05:00

Jeez, how bitter can you be? What did Constantine ever do to you to make you loathe him so much. He's talented, hard-working, and gorgeous. Give him a break, please. If you don't care for his singing, OK fine. You don't have to. But why be so hateful.

Comment from Marianne

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 13:09:43 -05:00

I'm so sorry to hear that your idea for a sitcom with that network didn't work out. I assume that this has to be the reason for your bitterness and jealousy!

Comment from lizzie

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 14:30:12 -05:00

Why were you in such a rush to get your craptastic story out earlier? Because Constantine Maroulis= attention, and you crave it. Apparently they give out tv fodder space like cracker jack prizes, because not only is there no news in this column, its not even written well, and its so biased. I think one of the previous writers is correct, Constantine reminds you of someone who made an ass out of you. I for one think he has a beautiful voice, and he got much praise for his brief comedic spot on the Idol finale this year. Its that kind of thing that grabbed Kelsey Grammer's attention. You obviously know nothing about tv if you don't respect the man who brought us "Frasier" for many, many years.

Comment from Marianne

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 15:29:38 -05:00

This comment is directed at Lizzi.
Someone said Con reminded Rachel of someone who made an ass out of her??
Oh boy! I didn't think about that one!
That would definately make her become a bitter and angry witch! Just in time for Halloween!!!

Comment from Joyce

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 15:35:11 -05:00

Hey Rachel, get over it honey. Your opinion is just that, yours....and who are you again?
Does Constantine or Kelsey Grammer care what you think? I am sure they have no idea you exist, neither did I before someone sent me this link.
Who is the real loser here? The one with the pending TV show or the one with the two-bit website that just happened to get picked up in a Google search. Your advertising $$$ are working for you, but again who cares?

Comment from Maureen

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 16:10:24 -05:00

It is a mystery to me how anyone can be so negative and venemous about a person as talented, admired and loved as Constantine. Can millions of fans all over the world be wrong? I don't think so. You have offended a lot of people..that tells me you are doing something wrong. I think you owe Constantine, Kelsey Grammer and their fans an apology.

Comment from Leann

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 16:17:22 -05:00

Obviously you haven't seen him perform live because that is an experience that will turn you into a Constantine fan forever. He is electric.

If you don't like the show don't watch, but you will be in the minority because more and more people are learning about the magic of Constantine and how awsome a performer he really is.

Comment from Kristin

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 18:37:54 -05:00

Wow Rachel, jealous much? As someone stated above, I have never even heard of you until I got sent the link to your pathetic, hateful words. I do hope you eat them when Constantine Maroulis and his devoted fans have the last laugh on non-believers such as yourself.

It's one thing to inform people of news, but it's another thing to be intentially cruel and attack a fellow human being. Get a hobby.

Comment from Virginia Abreu de Paula

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 19:02:25 -05:00

I know I should not write anything. Because obviously all this poor person wanted was to get messages. Otherwise she would be too lonely. That's the way she found to draw attention. Well, she got it. For wrong reasons, now everybody knows how silly she is, but it's attention, anyway. So I am writing only to ask you to ignore her from now on, please. Let's use our energy sharing love.

Comment from Sammy Hill

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 19:18:26 -05:00

I'm with Rachel Cericola. Constantine Marolis certainly is no big draw and has no audience. This is evidenced by his lack of cd selling power. Didn't Queen put him on the Killer Queen tribute because they thought he would sell platinum in a week? Totally didn't happen. So why base a tv show around him? This guy is creepy and full of himself. Judging by his American Idol stink, he must be a better actor than singer. Who would want to watch this crap? Constantine needs to be on broadway or soap operas. He has that overacting thing down pat.

Comment from Beth

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 19:23:47 -05:00

Oh gross! I, too, am going to be physically sick. What's the deal with all the Connee cult fanatics? He lost on American Idol midway for a reason. He is leery and looks like he could give you any number of STD's just by looking at you. I hear this show is about Constantine's life before Idol. It's a comedy and it's a half hour long. Does that mean Constantine's life has been short and funny?

Comment from Fitzgerald Savoy

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 19:29:03 -05:00

I always knew this guy was more of an actor than a singer. He belongs on broadway, but I hope his show works out. His music career hasn't been too successful.

Yes, Rachael has a big butt and never got to go to the prom. Rachael is an ugly one. At least she has her tremendous writing skills going for her. She will go far!!!!!! BIGGGGG BUTTTTT RACHAELLLLLL.

Oh I'm a writer of critiques too. See how talented I am? Rachael and I are smart ones but too bad we have such big butts. That's really gonna hold us back I'm afraid. You know... society. Us big butt folks don't get the respect we deserve. NOTTTT FAIRRRRRR!!!!!!

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 20:46:26 -05:00

How true Houston. Big Butt Rachael is such a talented analytical writer, she should be the one writing all of the new sit coms as well as choosing the talent. But noooooooo. Just because of her large rear end, she is limited to writing critical snark about others. It is an unjust world we live in.

Comment from Pen

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 20:53:31 -05:00

Wow. It's absolutely shocking that people are just so incredibly cruel and hateful about nothing more than the good fortune of strangers. Don't you have anything better to invest your energy in Rachel? Constantine may not have been everyone's favorite, but at least most people have the decorum and civility necessary to at least wish him well even if they don't intend to tune in. Damn... *shakes head incredulously*

What the hell are you smoking? Writing such a nasty article over someone just trying to have a career. You've got issues......... And you are probably right, Constantine probably has a lot of fans and you just pissed many of them off. Smart move........God! Although as nasty as you are I'm sure you don't give a crap.

Comment from katieharr

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 21:45:30 -05:00

This is in response to Beth,who was one of a very few who agreed with Rachael. "What's up with all the Connie cultist?", you ask.

Is it so abnormal for those who appreciate and enjoy an artist to come to his defense when he is attacked? Is it better to be one who will sit and try to think of the most vile venom to spew against an entertainer simply because they are not their type?

I am a fan, not a cultist. Rachael and yourself are bitter haters and are ever so welcome to change the channal any time something you don't enjoy is on TV. That's not fun for you though is it? You would rather be hateful.

Comment from Jessica Givens

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 22:08:42 -05:00

All I have to say is that all the responses to Cericola's article are childish and immature. Grow up. You are all a bunch of immature 12 year old morons. All of your responses have the intelligence of an infant. There is a reason this Connie girl is a loser and will always be a loser. Connie has no talent. He came out with a cd and it bombed. If he gets a tv show, it will have the worst ratings ever. Nobody care except for you little 12 year old losers. Rachel Cericola's article was intelligent and well written. Responses, saying she has a big butt and she is jealous, are completely idiotic. You idiots need to be elimiated. Hopefully, when Constantine is banished to broadway or soap operas will you twits shut your ignorant mouths.

Are all Constantine Maroulis fans stupid idiots? Were they born that way or did they just become that way over time? This is one reason abortion should never be outlawed.

Comment from Beth

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 22:13:45 -05:00

Yes Steven Laker, they are all idiots. Can't you tell? They have sure raised the level of intelligent discourse in here. Rachel Cericola sure was told! LOL! That was sarcasm.

OMG how can you like say that like my Connie? How can you say that about my Connie? Connie rocks and you are just sooooo jealous. Constantine is the bestest!!! Liek he is so hot and hot. Connie is the bestest ever! Any1 who hate my Connie is a bitter jealous big butt.

Steven Laker= abortionist
Look Rachael, you have associated yourself with an advocate of mass abortion on the premise of having different musical taste than said Steven.

This 2 bit web column has turned increasingly slummish. The internet certainly can bring out the evil in an anonamous human.

My guess is this critic didn't see Mr. Maroulis in RENT.
Bring a legit talented "heart-throb" to the small screen I say and PLEASE have him sing!
Might I suggest casting the VERY TALENTED Melody Easton as his on-screen love interest. Now THAT would be a show worth watching!!

Comment from Rhonda

Sun, 02 Oct 2005 12:06:13 -05:00

People have different tastes I understand, but to say such awful things about Constantine is wrong. Constantine has an awesome voice, and he is the sexiest man alive in my book, and millions of red blooded women agree. Maybe you are not heterosexual that is the only thing I can figure out, or you are trying to get some attention for bashing the soon to be most successful idol contestant ever. Who are you that you can publicly bash the most amazing man that ever lived. F*** you lady!!!

"Maroulis obviously has some talent"..Rachel

That's an understatement, Rachel. They guy oozes talent. And drop the "Maroulis." He's going to be a one-name, first-name-only-star: Constantine.
ABC knows it when they see it. I don't watch sitcoms but I will be recording everyone of Constantine's shows. Singing on the show better be part of his deal with ABC. Constantine's rise to stardom is unstoppable. His train has left the station. Jump on board, Rachel, guaranteed you'll enjoy the ride.

Comment from April Jaded

Sun, 02 Oct 2005 20:23:35 -05:00

I personally beleive that every person has the right to voice thier opinion, however I DO have a problem with it if the motive is just plain hatefulness. Did noone's mother ever tell them "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"? Maybe I'm the only one. Personally, I am overjoyed that Constantine has been able to realize his dream, and I don't think that any of us need to be putting him down for doing so. Should we all call each other names when we get a better job? Does that make us seem more grown up?? I don't think so. If some of you aren't Constantine fans, fine, but calling each other cultists, or losers or "big butt", or even saying that others should have been aborted because they have different musical tastes?? That's just plain childish. Remember all, MUSIC=FREEDOM. In ALL aspects- opinion, respect, emotions, everything. Can we agree to disagree? I don't feel that forcing anyone to beleive what I beleive will solve anything. Can't we all just get along?

Comment from Amanda

Sun, 02 Oct 2005 20:53:32 -05:00

Constantine MAROULES does not deserve to have one name yet. He is a loser. He's not a tv star or a recording star. Nobody knows or cares who he is. He is a smoker and has destroyed his voice beyond all comprehension.

Oh really, Amanda? I guess you didn't see Friday's Tonight show with Jay Leno, because Constanine (one name--that's how he was introduced)knocked it out of the park with a brilliant rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody, one of the most challenging rock pieces ever written. Are you some bitter ex-whatever of his?

Comment from Amanda

Sun, 02 Oct 2005 23:48:11 -05:00

No I did not see the Tonight Show on Friday. Since it was FRIDAY, I was out with friends. And I assume that not many other people saw(other than you Constantinople fanatics) the Tonight Show on a Friday because they were all out partying and living their lives. I suspect only old ladies, housewives, and those young children who had to ask their mommies and daddies for permission to stay up late. I hope he did not butcher Bohemian Rhapsody too badly. We wouldn't want Freddy Mercury rolling in his grave.

Dear Mrs/Miss Cericola:

Please do not fret. As Constantine Maroulis cult fanatics are loud, angry, and bitter that this off key crooner did not win American Idol. He was better than William Hung, but you know that's not saying much.

constantine did a pretty good job of a shortened version of the queen song - and freddy did not roll in his grave...He would not have been picked by Queen for the tribute album if so. He also performs well in concert.
I have to say he is a talented guy, I am sure we will be hearing more from him.
I am a working mom, but did not stay up late to watch the tonight show...but gee how did I see it? I have a TIVO. Also Paul Walker was on there as well another Hot man see you can still have a life if you have the technology, even a VCR would work....

Ex-‘Idol‘ Maroulis signs ABC sitcom deal
Staff and agencies
03 October, 2005

By Kimberly Speight 16 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Former "American Idol" contestant Constantine Maroulis is ready to return to television, this time in a sitcom that‘s being developed for him by ABC and Kelsey Grammer ‘s production company.

The project is in the very early stages of development, with the details still being hammered out and no writer yet attached, said Steve Stark, president of Grammer‘s Grammnet Prods. banner.

Grammnet brought Maroulis to ABC, which then signed a talent holding deal with him, said Stark, who called Maroulis a "showman" with a "bigger-than-life personality" who stood apart from the rest of the "Idol" Season 4 contestants.

"We saw something in him that was very unique, as did ABC," Stark said. "Collectively, we are trying to figure out the best way to showcase him in a half-hour series."

Maroulis‘ pact with ABC also gives the network the option of casting him in another project, comedy or drama.

Stark also noted that Maroulis has a background in theater, having trained at the Boston Conservatory.

Maroulis came in sixth place during the most recent season of Fox‘s singing competition "Idol."

Miss Cericola, Ketelynn, Peyton, Amanda and Jack Smith:

You must be in terrible pain. Why else you call somebody you don't know: Very, very fat, untalented, he can't sing, he lost his voice because he smokes etc.
If you really, truly believe all these things, why bother with him? Is the purpose to change our minds? To tell people like me, older, professional and a proud mother of 3 kids, that I can't tell a talent when I see it? And all of you can?
A reaction like that is expected by all of you, but not from Ms Cericola.
A professional writer, like Ms Cericola, should stick to facts. This is not a fiction story. You are talking about an artist's capabilities. I am willing to listen to you, if you can back up your remarks, with some facts. It is very unprofessional, to write articles like the above.
Shame to all of you. If he is not your cup of tea, please don't watch him.
But if you do, and I know you do, did you ask yourselves why?
I bet, that you see, the same things we do. Tons of talent. I am willing to bet that the fact he is so good and talented scares the hell out of you.
I suggest in the future, keep your nasty opinion to yourselves. After all, you can't affect ours and you do sound like idiots.

No joke: We haven't seen the last of American Idol's Constantine Maroulis. The former contestant tells People that he's signed a deal to star in a sitcom for ABC. He also talks about meeting Quentin Tarantino, who apparently rooted for him to win. "(He) kept saying I was going to be a big star. He was like, 'You sucked in the last song, but that's OK. You sang it great the night you went home.'"

Rachel Cericola,

You may want to take a minute to do a search on Quentin Tarantino. I doubt you will ever be recognized for any abilities to recognize REAL talent, but thankfully there are those out there that do.

Amanda--It's 2005; we have the technology. Join us. When you sober up after your "cool" Friday night out, be sure to set your TIVO for Constantine's new show on ABC.

Dear, dear miserable Rachel. It's clear that you hate the world. Why don't you want the rest of us to smile?
Let me guess, you were the girl in HS who hated the cheerleaders, homecoming king and queen & football captain. You are the girl who tells the world that she would never watch the Miss America or USA pageants, but do and say each girl is ugly. You are the girl who goes on and on about how Constanine fans need to get a life, but you're the one posting passionately about him.
You don't like John Travolta, either, do you dear?
Poor, pathetic, miserable Rachel.
Cheers to ABC. You are giving us a reason to smile every week, and giving poor, pathetic, miserable Rachel, a reason to bitch.

Its obvious to me that this writer is just jealous or doesnt have a clue about talent.
But consider the source, someone who has nothing better to do than to bash other people.
Frankly, what you say or think doesnt mean jack to me.
Congratulations Constantine you are going to be great!!!!

Are you a crazy person or what?? Constantine has more talent in his little finger than most singers around these days not to mention the man can act too!!! You really need some help! He is going to be the next big thing!! Have you not read any of the Reviews on the AI concerts?? He got the most support and the most screaming of any other idol. Sorry had to vent that I guess the Constantine Maroulis fans saying "you either get it or you don't" really rings true here!!

Rachel - I am sorry that ABC, Kelsey Grammar and Constantine's fans are at odds with your opinion. I don't know what he did to you to warrant such a trashing.
At this point, I really must question your credentials to critique Constantine's singing or acting.

Constantine has the strength, talent, drive, ambition, passion, intergrity, creativity, and ability to continually grow and better himself.
Im happy for him, and he deserves all the good things that happen to him.

Your comments are just dull, dense, half-witted, senseless, mindless and unintelligent.
I feel sorry for you.

As you can see from all the posts, Constantine has a huge and solid fanbase. And it just keeps on growing.

I have seen Constantine perform live five times since July. Never in my life have I gone to see a performer five times ever; let alone in two months... omg, what this man does to me! His performances are electrifying. He puts so much passion into everything he does. Have loved watching his star rise. He has so much talent and drive.

Rachel, remember the old adage, "If you don't have something nice to say..."

I have TIVO and no I am not going to waste my time watching some boring crap. Unfortunately for Constantine, Kelsey Grammar and ABC both have not had much luck in the sitcom/funnies department. Sure there was Frasier, but his current sitcom on CBS gets lackluster ratings. And his SNL knockoff was a bomb. The sitcoms on ABC also get lackluster ratings. There is also the fact that Constantine still hasn't found his audience. It's funny to me that a bunch of middle age women showed up to a hard rock concert.

I'm a Constantine fan thru and thru, and am actually very excited about the upcoming show.

So then, what is your point exactly Rachel? Simply that because he didn't win the American Idol title that he cannot possible be successful?

You did say yourself that he does have "talent". He is one very diverse individual - he and his band, Pray for the Soul of Betty are extremely talented, he has done theatre, is in the midst of recording a solo album, and now will be starring in a sit-com. He was approached by Queen to sing Bohemian Rhapsody on the tribute album, Killer Queen....were any other American Idol finalists presented with that honour? That in itself is outstanding! Rumor also has it that he had been contacted by Ralph Lauren for some modeling as well.

Shame on you for least wait until the show begins. Kelsey Grammer ain't no "Joe Blow". He must know what he's doing.

If Constantine has such a big fanbase, why don't they do anything but sit around and write nasty letters to other people? Why don't they go out and buy his cds or go to his concerts? Just because he sold out a 300 seat venue, that makes him sooo popular? I don't think so. Wayne Newton sells out 300 seat venues on a nightly basis.

Comment from Amanda

Mon, 03 Oct 2005 16:45:33 -05:00

Kelsey Grammar made Down Periscope and another SNL knockoff that bombed. Nuff said? No? Then he also has another sitcom right now called "Out of Practice" that is getting lackluster ratings. The only things people watch on ABC is Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover, and Lost. There are no good sitcoms on ABC.

You probably don't know who you're talking to do you? Connie's girlfriend.. #41 that is... hehe, inside joke! Anyway, I'm happy for him and I can't wait! Hell he is doing better than Fantasia Barrino and Ruben Studdard who won Seasons 2 and 3. And obviously he's doing something right, or else you wouldn't be talking all this smack about him. In fact if he weren't doing something right then you wouldn't be talking about him at all! And with reading this I say, "More power to you Connie! Show em what you're made of!" I love Constantine!!!!

Obviously, you would not know talent if it reached up and bit you on the face! When Constantine accepts his awards for not only the TV show, solo and Pray for the Soul of Betty album, you will not find your name in the liner notes or thank you speeches. Of course, critics are somewhat to be pitied...what is the old adage? For those who can not do...

Constantine has alot more good press than bad and your pithy comments will not hurt him in the least. Sure he has a fan base and an that I am glad does not include you.

Comment from Gianna

Mon, 03 Oct 2005 16:54:56 -05:00

One more thing...

Rachel dear, you must have written this "so called" piece of writing for a reason. It can't possibly be because there was nothing else to write about. My conclusion...this man - yes, Constantine Maroulis, intrigued you enough to write about him. Whether it's good or bad that you wrote, the fact is, YOU WROTE ABOUT HIM. If you disliked him that much, you would not have wasted your time with this. Nobody twisted your arm.

Next time, put a sock in it!

This was a very mean-spirited article. I don't know who you are, and from this arcticle-don't want to know you...

Constantine has a huge fanbase and we all think he is a very talented man. He is electric in his performances. Once you see him live, you will be a fan forever.

He is also a very NICE person and doesn't deserve to be treated in this fashion...He deserves an apology, Whatever your name the very least, people know him by his first name. He is destined for 'great things'

If talent came over,introduced itself, and then slapped you,I think you still wouldn't reconize it! Normally, I'm not for negative comments, but why do you feel the need to completly last out on both Con and Kelsey Grammar? I honestly don't think either of them did anything to offend you. So, quoting pujolsLVR, "More power to you Connie! Show em what you're made of!", I hope you realize Con has a lot more support than you obviously think.

I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but to pre-judge is so unfair.

IF the show ends up being a bust (as you are already convinced it will be), then go ahead, by all means write a negative review.

I find it very sad that people like Rachel have nothing better to do with their time than down talk others. You're obviously unhappy with yourself if you have to stoop that low. Constantine is an incredibly multi-talented man and has everything going for him, and you obviously are jealous of that and can't handle it. I feel bad for you Rachel.

Constantine is doing better than Fantasia and Ruben? You guys are all delusional nitwits. I don't see Constantine with a hit record or grammy nominations. All I see is Constantine with no record sales and a potential for a tv show. He hasn't made it yet. He's still a loser. I'm beginning to wonder if you people are working for him. How much is he paying you to sleep with him? Ha ha!

Pretty managed to get all these people to read your article. You obviously knew your venomous words would bring all these fans out of the woodwork.

I never even heard of TV Fodder until you "dissed" Constantine...pretty knew what would bring the readers in.

I find Constantine very interesting and I will watch his show. But some of you that don't like him may just tune in to watch out of know, like people who say they are disgusted by something, but just can't look away.

Hey,maybe you could help me out and write an article about somebody I can't stand. Please Rachel "diss" Fitty Cent for me...please,please, please. He is the most over rated and overpaid performer on the planet. The man has a solid gold bedroom for God's sakes.

Spit a little of your venom on someone like that.

Isn't it sad, Beth, that these silly people think that Constantine is a big successful star? Only in their dreams. He hasn't had much success at all and he sure doesn't have enough to go by one name yet. Well he sure has a big head.

Comment from Katelynn

Mon, 03 Oct 2005 17:17:36 -05:00

Rachel Cericola knows what she's talking about. She dissed Constantine because he's a loser and he has no audience. What do Fantasia, Ruben Stutterd, and 50 Cent have in common? They all have Grammy nods and they all sold more cds than old Connie boy combined. If he has a tv show, he better be a better actor than singer. Because Connie boy couldn't carry a tune.

My Dearest Rachel,
It is clear to me that you are a hater. Why would you be so negative and down right ugly. Did Constantine do anything to you personally? I am sure not, he is a GREAT actor, performer, and musician. If you don't FU#*ing care for him, then you don't have to watch him. Find something else to do like critize other people, which is something you have a talent for, unlike writing. Constantine DO YOUR THANG BABY, WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS.........

It's not as if he's 18 years old....he is a very mature, 30 year old man. Extremely confident (as he should be).

NOTE: HUGE difference between being confident and being 'cocky'.

This is your opinion, Rachel, and I will respect that. However, it was a bit harsh of you to write something like that. Perhaps Constantine will prove to you that he's better than you may think. In the meantime, it would be greatly appreciated if you would respect his fans, and not publish such cruel words.

Uh Rachel dear - how old are you?, just curious. And what demographic are you in? - just curious.

You must be a Bo fan maybe...or are you from down south?

Are you a Clay fan maybe who is a little jealous because his offers have stopped coming in?

How dare you make suggestions like that, when you haven't even seen Constantine act on Broadway. How ignorant are you? Constantine is unique to entertainment, and he is good looking on top of being such a nice guy...and he IS a really nice guy...with a big heart.

I wish him all the luck in the world...

I agree there are very few sitcoms that make it these days, good for him for at least giving it a shot. He is not some amatuer you know. And most of TV today is reality shows....I think the funniest show I've seen since Will and Grace is that new show "Earl" and "Lost" along with "Desperate Housewives".

Why don't you give the guy a chance.....
