Paula's On... TV

1/12/2007 4:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Abdul's press tour to promote the new season of "American Idol" spun out of control today when she landed in the Pacific Northwest.

Paula's curious "appearance" on Seattle's Q13 FOX Morning News took a fast nose dive as the pint-sized Idol judge slurred and giggled her way through the interview.

Anchors Lily Jang and Carmen Ainsworth kept it together as Abdul bobbed and weaved for the camera.

For what it's worth, Paula's rep tells TMZ that it is "much ado about nothing." He says the station had "technical problems with the satellite and her sound was dropped not once but twice. Paula was in a small room by herself with only a cameraman. Paula was distracted and confused by the station dropping the sound. She did not know what was going on."

Clearly.

I saw her on KTVU in San Francisco, interviewed by Ross McGowan the same morning. She was crazy loopy! Contantly twisting around and slurring words, making little sense. Another technical problem? Or too many pain meds?!

Wow! I'm not sure what to say. It also seems as though she may have someone in the room with her...she keeps looking to the left..almost as if someone may be trying to talk to her there. The whole thing is a bit weird.

She was acting the same way for the SF audience. What a much more exciting media tour then the usual bored celeb. repeating the same answers ad nauseaum. But shouldn't her reps. at least admit she'd been drinking or something to loosen up? Otherwise I'm left with the impression Paula Abdul either smokes crack or she's a barely functioning mental patient who's made it suprisingly far. So what's really going on here? Straight up now tell me.....

Here we go again. It's just like being in the AI chat room! If Paula was really "on Drugs", she would have been booted from the show a LONG time ago. Do any of you really think the "powers that be" on AI, would let her go on each week high as a kite? the answer to that is a big h*ll NO! She is just a ditz, plain and simple. Quit trying to make it more than what it is!!

Seriously    

I don't believe anything that comes out of Hollyweird.
It's all smoke and mirrors.

Isn't anyone EVER straightforward? "I did not have sex with that woman." "Iraq has WMDs." "I have never had plastic surgery." "I didn't mean what I said, I was just drunk." "Britney was just tired and fell asleep." "Paula was disoriented in a room by herself." Aww, come on! I, for one, am so tired of ridiculous and obviously ludicrous spin control stories that I could scream. WHY BOTHER? No one (please tell me no one) believes a word of it, anyway. When everyone from Presidents and politicians to celebrities to criminals lies and hires people to lie for them, no one can be believed anymore .. how would you ever know the truth? But what you DO know is what isn't true .. what OBVIOUSLY isn't true .. so here it is: Paula wasn't just 'disoriented,' Britney wasn't just tired, Michael Jackson HAS had plastic surgery (and so has Sophia Loren), there never were WMDs (and those who told us there were never actually believed there were), and Mel Gibson has deep-seated issues with Jews and with women regardless of whether he expresses them or not while blasted out of his mind. Stop, stop, stop with the stupid spin control, and just admit it when you're caught red-handed.

I can't believe that Idol reps don't demand a drug test. She's always f'ed up on AI and practically every interview. She should be so embarrassed. Rehab should be her next stop.

C'mon you people... Danny Devito is drunk and foolish on the View after being up all night on a drunk and its cute, but Paula does the same thing and she needs intervention? so none of you ever drink? None of you haven't shown up for work a little worse for wear? Nothing like reading a bunch of hypocrites. I never even watch AI and don't plan to but most of you guys need to look in the mirror
