Don't Kiss Paula Goodbye ... Just Yet

8/6/2009 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paula AbdulThe door isn't completely slammed on Paula Abdul ...

Multiple "American Idol" insiders are telling TMZ there is a chance Paula will come back to the show. Reality -- better than a good chance.

We're told the conflict is ultimately all about money ... and buzz leading up to season 9.

But for now, "A.I." is full speed ahead -- auditions for the show are set for tomorrow ... without Abdul.

American Idol is so boring for me to watch. If Paula doesn't come back, I definitely won't be watching next season. The show's top executives totally disrespected Paula when they offered her far less money they gave to Ryan--the show's host. Randy, you are next Dog!!!

AI should replace Paula's drugged induced lame butt with a bigger train wreck, Amy Winehouse. Now that would be great to see Amy and Simon go at it.

No Paula and Simon banting back and forth!! I am too mad at Idol to watch anymore. It is my protest. I don't think they can match this past season without Paula.

Has anyone noticed that it is only the White Males on the show that get paid the outrageous dollars? I hope they give her more money and she comes back. Most fans of the show want her back.

I do hope Paula returns to Idol. She is the only one that could add spark and fun to the show. She tries to see the good in all of the contestants no matter how good or bad they performed. If she doesn't return she will definitely be missed by a lot of people.

Its about time Paula is out! I could never figure out why she was a judge anyway. She doesn't have any ANY musical talent or credential.

Its so much in the shows favor to have Kara Dio Guardi there. That woman is an amazing songwriting talent!! Seriously, check out her bio:

Who wants to watch a bunch of aging guys on American Idol?

I want some glam, and I happen to like Paul Abdul.

If she goes, no one else can take her place IMO.

No watchin for me.
