Rumor has it, according to the National Enquirer, that Paula Abdul is “secretly” planning to launch her own talk show, whether TPTB at American Idol meet her 10 million dollar salary demands or not.
My question, is, why would Paula need a “secret plan”? I mean, if she is negotiating a new contract and looking to double her salary to 10 million dollars, wouldn’t she want TPTB at Idol to think that she’s in demand?
Of course she would. That’s why her peeps planted the item in the first place!
According to the Enquirer:
The 46-year-old entertainer has been in talks with CBS/Paramount Network Television about developing the show ‘ and sources say it could make its debut as early as next year.
…Paula been dreaming about having her own talk show for three years, and she ready to make it a reality, a source close to the star told The ENQUIRER.
Paula envisions the new show focusing on issues that affect average people ‘ plus an occasional celebrity guest, says the source.
Her “vision” sounds like every afternoon talker that’s currently on TV. Although, if she repeats some of her Idol shenanigans on a talk show–confusion, meltdowns, non-sequiturs–I might tune in.
After the jump, check out a snip from some of the music Paula’s been working on, featured in her MTV reality show, Rah!. It’s called “Boombox, ” and the beats are really annoying. Like a chorus of off-key bees. Sometimes I really hate pop music.
Paula’s new album is scheduled to be released sometime this year.
