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...

She deserves the $10 mil! People aren't going to watch if she's not on and why should she get paid so much less than the men? Paula is worth it!

I love Paula, she has a heart. She gets up and dances and makes the show a little more fun. But she is a ditto head and agrees most of the time with Randy or Kara. Plus half the time she sounds like she is reciting something that was prewritten and I doubt she knows what she is saying. I hate to see her go this way, but I will still watch idol whether she stays or goes.
