Just call him "Bo Vice"

American Idol contestant Harold "Bo" Bice (because, as you know, some of the true legends of rock and roll were named "Harold") skated on a couple of drug-related beefs prior to his Idolatry, according to the newshounds over at The Smoking Gun.

Busted in 2001 on a cocaine possession charge, Old Weird Harold — I mean, Bo — completed a diversion program to avoid serving a siesta in the juzgado on the Class C felony. He was nailed again in 2003 with a stash of locoweed and associated paraphernalia, pleading guilty to two misdemeanors (the more drugs Bo misses, de meaner he gets, I suppose) and riding out the pot charge thanks to his diversionary assignment.

If Bo wins the Idol trophy, I think I know how he's going to celebrate.

From the beginning of the Idol season, KM and I have referred to this guy as "Bob Ice," a relocation of the space in his name making him a much more compelling figure in the tradition of Vanilla Ice, another overhyped pop star wannabe from the Deep South.

At least Bo isn't "blowing kisses in the wind" with Idol judge Paula Abdul, unlike — according to recent allegations — some of his predecessors on the show. far as we know he isn't, anyway. Although, given her erratic behavior of late, one wonders whether Bo and Paula share a common affinity for certain (ahem) pharmaceutical products.

1 insisted on sticking two cents in:

Blogger Lynda offered these pearls of wisdom...

I can't help it - I like Bo. He's definitely the best guy choice on AI this year. And in response to your other post, Tom Cruise is creeping me out - he has almost had as many celebrity relationships as Ben Affleck.

So, catching a buzz or flitting from flower to flower... go Bo, go!

Oh, and I am ready to tune in to Jeopardy at 3:30pm Central time tomorrow, too.
