Paula Abdul leaving ‘American Idol’
Yes, it’s true: We won’t have Paula Abdul to kick around anymore. Well, not on “American Idol,” anyway.
Paula announced that she’s leaving the show in a series of Twitter messages late yesterday. And don’t think this is just another ploy for more money in her contract negotiations. That trick apparently failed – she reportedly wanted $20 million a year to stay – because FOX has already confirmed her departure in an official announcement.
Here’s what Paula tweeted in her good-bye note:
Guess this explains why controversial fourth (now third) judge Kara DioGuardi was rehired for another season last week.
So will you watch “AI” without Paula’s shaky, nonsensical remarks? I have to admit I’m a little sad about it…
