With Kara DioGuardi’s new Idol contract just about a done deal, she’s all set to to join the judges’ panel for American Idol Season 9.
But, where does that leave Paula Abdul? The judges’ round auditions begin in less than two weeks and still no word of a new contract for Paula.
She’s been quiet lately, but she emerged today, via twitter, to let her fans know that she and her team are still trying to hammer out a deal:
@PaulaAbdul: Hi everyone. I’ve been quiet as we are trying to work out details of how I can return to #Idol.
Will Paula return to Idol? I think she will. She’ll compromise on her salary demands while still getting a nice raise. The 4-judge panel will return…
UPDATE: More Paula tweets:
- Your support & encouragement means so much to me. I hope you understand I can only return to #Idol if the deal is fair.
- Whatever happens with #Idol, I love you guys and am so happy we have this way to stay in touch.
- I will give you updates on how things are going, to the extent I can. I know your attention is very powerful & can help a lot.
