kara dioguardi idol 320 maxim 'American Idol's' Kara DioGuardi gets sexy in MaximRemember how Kara Dioguardi showed off her bikini body during the 2009 “American Idol” finale? There’s more where that came from.

Kara DioGuardi gave an interview to Maxim magazine and posed for a sexy pictorial to accompany it.

When asked if she’s sad about Simon leaving, Kara says, “I have no idea. All I can say is the guy can do things not many folks can get away with, and people like when someone is true to himself.” That’s a very diplomatic answer, Kara!

She’s also incredibly happy about Ellen joining the show (“I was like, ‘Rock on!'”) and says that she’s gotten a couple of marriage proposals since she started on “Idol.” Check out the full interview over at Maxim.com. For now, whet your appetite with these photos and video of her shoot.
