Bad News: Simon Says Paula To Stay on Idol
(Hecklerspray) Yesterday we said that Paula Abdul was probably going to leave American Idol. And she really was, too. She was going to leave. It wasn't just a dimwitted bluff to make American Idol pay her more money. Paula Abdul was definitely leaving American Idol. Unless the show decided to pay her a lot more money, in which case she'd consider staying. But it's not about money. Its about being treated with a basic level of human decency. And money. It's mostly about money.
Anyway, Simon Cowell has revealed that he wants Paula Abdul to stay. That was probably our point. "She'll be fine. She'll be on the show," judge Simon Cowell told Extra on Monday.
"I don't get a lot of say. I've just made it clear that I want Paula on the show. Full stop." Meanwhile, host Ryan Seacrest expressed a similar sentiment. "I think as far as I know you'll see everybody back," he told the TV show. "I hope so." - more on this story
