Paula Abdul Will Not Be Dancing With Any Stars

2/28/2010 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula AbdulWhen you wake up Monday morning to read the list of "stars" who will be on next season's "Dancing With the Stars" ... Paula Abdul's name will not be on it.

Sources close to Paula tell TMZ the former "American Idol" judge has decided against doing the show -- despite the giant bag of money ABC practically threw at her.

As we first reported, the alphabet net offered Paula a $1,000,000 development deal ... if she agreed to do "Dancing."

Paula is still in talks with Simon Cowell about joining his upcoming "X Factor" show.

I don't know why but I love Paula! I find her refreshing, in an age of vulgar, copy cat, snarky, look like porn star, celebrities, it's nice to have a pretty, sweet, compassionate, eccentric in the mix!

So since you say she isn't dancing with any stars, it is still possible for her to be on the show DWTS, right?

I have a instinctual feeling that she will get neither. Her use to promote all three shows have run it's course.She ha to commit to more she was willing is my feeling on the matter. The woman is a comsumate entertainer and she knows her sh-t when it comes to dancing. Looking at her picture says a lot. That looks like a scared woman. Whenever I have seen her in public no matter what kind un descript behavior she would portray. She would always look her best in public. Very beautiful. It depends when this picture was taken.

Liou you're the dumbass as well as the person who said she was going to be a professional, not one of the contestants.

She was never asked to be a judge. That was a rumor from a few years back. but she was asked to be a CONTESTANT on this season's show.

not a judge... not a professional dancer... A CONTESTANT.

Having seen Paula on "Bruno" made me realize how "ignorant she is" with no character. why should she be on dancing with the stars especially when she complains about her back problems ! Paula Straight up and try and make something useful for once. the X Factor Needs someone New and Fresh !

No wonder she said no. Her trademark is dancing. How would she look if she got booted from a show where people are judged and critique for their dancing. Especially when she's older and not in the best health. Hell, I would be afraid of making an as$ out of myself if I were her. She's playing it on the safe side and her talent ability stays intact. If we can't see her lose she stays a great dancer forever in our minds....gotta give the girl her props for being smart.
