Wednesday's intriguing people

Pia Toscano

Viewers were shocked when the American Idol prospect was ousted from the top 10 last month. Last night, it was announced that the singer will appear on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday.

Rich Scali

The owner of Georgia-based Easy Street Rentals  appeared on a commercial praising BP’s response to the oil spill in the Gulf Region. In today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution, however, Scali said that while he was initially pleased with the support BP provided for his four rental businesses and 16 properties throughout the Florida panhandle, his business is no longer growing 30%, as it was before the spill. He is now worried that before he can get any further claim money, BP wants him to sign a waiver absolving the company for any future problems that rise from the spill. “I look at this as a bad dream,” Scali said.

JoAnn Chiakulas

The 68-year-old grandmother was the lone not-guilty vote that kept former Illinois Gov. Rob Blagojevich from being found guilty of trying to sell Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat. While that jury was also hung on the 22 other counts against Blagojevich, Chiakulas told the Chicago Tribune that she's faced harsh criticism for her decision. Blagojevich’s retrial begins Wednesday.

      In disclosure, I am enormous fans of Triump and Cornholio. Thus, you have both made me cringe–and laugh out loud.

      Thank you

    Rich needs to collect from bp, they messed off a bunch of people with their mess. And arent jury members supposed to not talk about other jurors? It should be a law if its not already..

    Uh, the juror that they are talking about was from Blago's last first trial, which hung the jury on most counts. After the trial, she received a lot of flack from, a) the other jurors, and b) the rest of the world. They need to leave this woman alone; she's done with the trial.

    The gulf is still in serious trouble. The eco system is having difficult time dealing with a half done cleanup and BP doesn't want to waste any more of their time or monies to correctly get job done. They just want out of their responsibility.

    4 billion , I meant. But for all the good 4 bil would do it may as well be $4.

    Lol, raven. But if BP pays fines, no matter what the amount is, we'll still pay for it somehow at the pump. Big business always passes the buck.

    The pressure should still be coming down on BP to continue working on cleanup. I makes me mad that they get a tap on the butt. What the heck!!!!!

    Halliburton knew that cement used in the project was unstable but went ahead anyway.Halliburton conducted four tests on cement used to seal the bottom of the well, two just days before the well was activated. Only one of the tests suggested the cement was stable. BP was told by Halliburton about the findings of one failed test, but it was buried deep in a report.BP has claimed that cement from Halliburton failed to contain hydrocarbons at the bottom of the well as required, contributing to a build-up of explosive material.Halliburton refused to provide a formula for the cement, or share details of its tests.
