Ex-Idol Host Wants “Truth”

The American Idol machine appears to be falling apart as of late, and a new interview with Brian Dunkleman will likely not help matters.

Dunkleman, as you may recall, co-hosted the competition’s first season with Ryan Seacrest but stepped aside to allow Seacrest the chance to take over the world.

Dunk gave an interview on Adam Carolla’s radio show to talk about his time on Idol, where he said he “developed such self-hatred” for taking part in a show he claims was mean-spirited and targeted specific contestants in an effort to break them.
