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.

Paula is DRUNK or stoned. This is the 3rd time I have seen her on TV recently and she has been "out there" every other time too. Quit making excuses for her. She's stoned.

I watch American Idol for the new talent, to see what Simon says and to see if Paula is drunk and throwing herself at the young men.

What kwap...ask yourself - do you weave around and slur your words when you're "tired"? Paula better make sure she has an iron-clad contract with Idol - or is that part of the problem - does she think she can do whatever she wants and NOT get canned? Some people spin out of control when their lives are going TOO well. Very strange.

Paula has to take meds for her back...hence, why she acts like that. Watch any of the other videos...it has nothing to do with her being drunk or on drugs.

folks, any one with rsd must be on heavy duty drugs or any cronic pain condition. Its easy for all of us to joke and laugh and want to mock people but sometimes behind the laugh its no jokeing matter. i encourage all persons commenting to look up rsd before you make a joke of this clip. living in pain is like living in hell. i have a friend with rsd who acts simular to paula at times i understand the slured speach and uncontrolable movement read up you wont be laughing so hard

She was about as sober as some alcoholic judges that I know. And was obviously under the influnce of SOMETHING. At least Danny DeVito admitted he was crocked! I respect and admire him. He does have some talent. She is an over rated bich and on an over rated ( no brain) show. Neither she or her show has talent. Love it when they have others attempt to cover their asses. What a snow job. Have a child hood friend who is a counselor at Betty Ford, wonder if she can help.

I had an aunt (whom I loved dearly) who used to REALLY like her pain killers, and I can tell you, it was like deja vu. Paula was high as shit. She wasn't drunk, stoned on weed, tired, exhausted, or cloned by aliens. She was ripped to the gills on some kind of prescription.

And the worst part about it, she didn't even have the decency to share....lol
