American Idol contestants eat Bloomin' Onions at Outback

Rush & Malloy printed some Idol gossip today regarding a recent visit to a Burbank Outback Steakhouse.

All the Idol contestants were eating together! Adam Lambert brought his boyfriend! And OMG Anoop Desai is TOTALLY NAILING Megan Joy.

“American Idol” finalist Adam Lambert wasn’t coy about his love life when he and other “AI” contestants got together the other night at Burbank’s Outback Steakhouse. Lambert called the dude with him “my boyfriend,” says a spy. Also looking cozy at the dinner: Anoop Desai and Megan Joy Corkrey, who sources say are an item.

    When I first heard this, I laughed because it seemed ridiculous. But then I remembered a few things. Anoop’s reaction to Megan’s caw-cawing, how she told him to make sure he called her. After one of Anoop’s songs, Ryan asked if there was a special girl, and Anoop said no, then gave a little smirk to the camera. All speculation , but you never know LOL

    Anyway, I think the Anoop/Megan thing is more likely than Adam eating at an Outback lmao

    I kinda hope the Megan/Anoop (Meganoop?) thing is true. I can’t stand her, but she’s totally hot, so if he’s hittin’ that then I’m happy for him.

    I doubt they were ever having dinner at Outback. No way. Even with a budget, Adam is a local, and knows where to dine in Los Angeles. He wouldn’t be caught dead there, with or without a boyfriend!

      I don’t think they have a choice. And from what I’ve been told, they don’t have cars and they are chaparoned all the time while they are in LA. Outback and Olive Garden make perfect sense, given the proximity to the studio where they are rehearsing for the finale. Anywhere good and local in LA that Adam knows about would be a 20-30 minute drive from that location – it’s not happening.

    Anoop and Megan? Hmmmmmm……how to put those together (linguistically speaking, that is). Lemme see… ‘Noggin’? Well – it’s something you can bang (rap, tap) on. ‘Manoop’ sounded way too MST3K – and I just don’t like the mental picture ‘Megoo’ makes. So. ‘Noggin’ it is.

    If McDonald’s forks it over for a big-time ad on the finale…the kiddies may get to make a run through the drive-thru!

    Oh, and the Olive Garden is right across the parking lot from the Outback Steakhouse. I shit you not.

      Where is the Chili’s? And the Applebee’s?

        I think the Chili’s is downtown. I haven’t seen an Applebees.

    I know exactly where this restaurant is – they are rehearsing for the finale at a sound stage across the street from the Burbank Airport, and the Outback Steakhouse is in a strip mall on Empire Dr. right around the corner. It’s a couple of miles from my house.
