Paula Smashes Schnozz Trying to "Avoid" Chihuahua

5/21/2007 5:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wait 'til Simon hears about this! As first reported by "EXTRA," ever loopy "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul broke her nose over the weekend, when she tripped while trying to avoid stepping on her dog -- a large, threatening, fear-instilling chihuahua named Tulip. (We kid, of course.)

Though she wasn't hospitalized, "EXTRA" says Abdul did suffer the nose-mashing fate just days before the live finale of "Idol." There's no indication that she'll be missing the big event, or that she'll have to wear any protective headgear -- to avoid Cowell's no doubt stinging barbs.

When TMZ contacted Abdul's rep, Howard Bragman, about the accident, all he would say is, "I didn't trip her!"

A spokesperson for FOX had no comment.

Nice unflattering picture of you, Paula. I hope an asteroid hits the Kodak Theater and kills Blake and Jordin and they cancel AI so Kelly Clarkson becomes the TRUE one-and-only American Idol w/ Carrie Underwood a close second and Clay (Aiken) third. Nobody else. Nooooooooooooooooooooobody!!!!!!

It's long time for Paula Abdul to come clean--she'll gain a lot more respect for being totally honest and seeking addiction therapy! We all saw (with our own eyes) those various interviews where she was under the influence of "something or other", eh!
