Philadelphia real estate investor Shawn Bullard had everything a man could ever want. Almost. He had a solid football career at Temple and even had a short-lived stint in the NFL. He's a highly successful entrepreneur who long ago passed the millionaire mark. And he knows he's loved - his mother Maggie works with him, giving the 33-year-old plenty of support and, if needed, some scolding. He's even had a satisfying dating life.

The story line for the new season of American Idol was established almost immediately. Nicki Minaj was the last of the judges to make an appearance, emerging from her limo in a stunning drum majorette hat. Pecking order established. Ain't no party until Ms. Nicki arrives.
