Kara DioGuardi is ready to spill secrets about the big judge switcheroo on "American Idol."

Web site Wizbang Pop reports DioGuardi, who was a judge on seasons 8 and 9 of "American Idol," has written a tell-all book detailing what happened when she was fired from "A.I." She'll also dish details on Simon Cowell's and Ellen DeGeneres' exits from the show. DioGuardi's book may also shed some light on Paula Abdul's departure.
