Crystal Bowersox: “We All Have Our Moments of Doubt”

2nd Update: Crystal tweeted again, “No apologies for being human. Life is always testing ones strength and weakness threshold. That’s how we learn how strong we really are :-)”

UPDATE: Eonline confirmed the TMZ report with Ryan Seacrest. Read more HERE. Ryan produces E!’s daily E! News program.

Crystal Bowersox just tweeted what looks like a response to this morning’s report from TMZ that she almost quit the show:

“We all have moments of doubt. As much as I miss my kid, the big picture is this: im doing this for him and my fans. I’m having the time of my life!”

According to TMZ, Crystal had to be calmed down in the CBS studios parking lot by Ryan Seacrest. She wanted to go back to Ohio to be with her family, whom she missed terribly.

Ryan told Crystal that being on “Idol” was like starting a business and that if she won she’d get a recording contract and make scads of money.

“The greatest thing I ever did was make enough money so I could buy my mom a house. You can buy your mom a house, ” Ryan told her.

Reportedly, that “sealed the deal” for Crystal.

No doubt there’s a moment for all the kids when they feel tired and frustrated and ready to give it up and go back home…

ETA: Could producers have planted this story to drum up some controversy for a moribund season?

Some suggest (including a few astute blog peeps) the story was planted to prop up Ryan Seascrest on the heels of his weird behavior on Tuesday night’s Idol
