Is Paula Abdul Leaving American Idol?

Is Paula Abdul Leaving American Idol?

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Paula Abdul may not return to `American Idol` for a ninth season, her manager claimed in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.

`She`s not a happy camper as a result of what`s going on. She`s hurt. She`s angry,` David Sonenberg, the `Idol` judge`s manager, told the newspaper on Friday."

American Idol resuscitated the career of Paul Abdul, if it weren`t for the Fox megahit franchise she would be singing "Forever Your Girl" as a cruise ship headliner or choreographing a junior high school musical.

Paul Abdul should be on her knees thanking the producers of Americans Idol for taking a chance on a washed-up, drug-addled nincompoop.

Paula Abdul is bitterly angry because negotiations with the producers of Idol are at a stalemate. Abdul should be grateful she hasn`t been fired -- at several times on the popular show she`s appeared drunk, high or crazy.

Abdul should be fired, is it too much to ask for a judge who doesn`t clap like a seal and makes about as much sense as a seal on crack?
