Paula Abdul

Easy As ABC

8/12/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Abdul -- Easy As ABCPaula Abdul isn't missing a beat. Our spies say she spent part of the afternoon yesterday with ABC entertainment honcho Steve McPherson.

We're told Stevie M. wants Paula to be a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars" in the worst way. We're told there was talk of making her a guest judge but that's not gonna happen, and we know why. Paula and Carrie Ann Inaba don't get along.

But McPherson, who's friends with Paula, wants more from her than "Dancing." There's talk of Paula doing a guest appearance on "Ugly Betty." And we're told Paula has a show in mind with her name on it.

As for that other show ... "American Idol" we think it's called ... Paula is not shutting the door. $10 million, and she's theirs.

Stay tuned...

Good thing Paula wasn't allowed to be guest judge on dancing with the stars, would ruin the chemistry of the three already there. Not to mention Paula has no ballroom experience or expertese. Contestant would be interesting to see though.

Personally I don't see where this is even news worthy. Who care if she goes back or not. this has been getting more publicity than the real issues of the world.

So Paula wants to dance in a contest where one judge hates her from the get go? Lay off the Apple-tinis, Paula.

It is called a publicity stunt and TMZ, and all of you, are falling for it. It is months till the show hits the airwaves again so Fox needs to hold public interest.

Paula on dancing with the stars? She claimed she had a back back and knee issues from dancing in the 80's. Miss Paula is nothing but a curiosity to the public. A real train wreck like Lohan. Are the people on AI overpaid? Yes. But the show rakes in tons of dollars for Fox and the production company. These new salary levels mean a higher production cost. As the ratings continue to slide, there will come a time when Fox will just drop the show.

I just don't get it! Paula was a has been for like 15 years and now she's the hottest thing on the market because she was the most boring, politically correct judge on that trash show American Idol? What's so great about her? I liked MC Scat Cat in that "Two steps forward, two steps back. We come together 'cause opposites attract" video. But that's the most memorable thing, the biggest contribution she made in this world; MC Scat Cat.

She is a horrible role model for the younger generation. She is unprofessional, an idiot, and incabable of making a real living. She is not worth the 10 million, AI of 2 million was calculated to insult and get her gone. KEEP HER GONE AI. Get real singers on the panel who have more to offer than dopey platitudes. Our younger generation deserves the best - not a fool!

Justice !    

Paula will either go back on her terms or she'll do just fine without A.I. Will A.I. that's to be determined. I personally don't think Ryan Seacrest should get paid 45 mil, that's screwed up! He's all right and the girls love him but come on ! As far as Paula is concerned she loaded with talent. She's an amazing dancer with an awesome voice and she's beautiful !

Justice !    

If everyone in the world had their dirty laundry aired every day we'd all stink! Most rumors aren't even close to being true, There are to many gullable people who believe everything they hear. Unless you personally know someone you shouldn't cast stones... they'll come back at you someday and hurt you.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

3. There always have been contestants on DWTS who have had a certain advantage over their competition- like Mario Lopez took tons of dance lessons as a kid. But Paula was a PROFESSIONAL choreographer! That would be ridiculously unfair. Why even watch?

I agree, Paula is a professional dancer and choreographer. No way is it fair for her to be on "DWTS". I also doubt she is going back to Idol, TMZ. Get your facts straight here, the auditions have already begun.
