Exclusive: 'Ugly Betty' snags Paula Abdul

paula-abdul-news_lAt long last, someone to tell Betty she’s beautiful!

Former American Idol judge Paula Abdul is in talks to guest star on Ugly Betty, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Details of Abdul’s role are being kept under wraps, but an Ugly insider tells me that she’d be playing a new temp at Mode who bonds with Becki Newton’s Amanda.

If a deal can be made, this would mark Abdul’s first official post-Idol gig. (Her upcoming appearance on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva was brokered before she twittered her resignation.)

    I don’t understand why everybody’s chomping at the bit to hire Paula Abdul. I mean, maybe she could be a spokesperson for a major pharmaceutical company, but acting? Please…

  • Phnam Nyguen

    I think she will be great in this. The camera love her and she has warm spirit.

  • misin formed

    I just saw the other judges mourning her on E! News. RIP Paula.

  • Dr Evil

    O.K. Tha woman has had a face job. WTF! Why would anyone hire that booooob.

  • Richard Ott

    Whether Paula Abdul judges on the
    9’th season of ABC’s Dancing With
    The Stars or not, if she did, and
    then was asked to reprise her role
    in Ugly Betty as a full-time cast
    member of that show, I think that
    would be too big a coinsidence and
    quite a coo for the alphabet net.

    • Mr Mrs

      Can you spell anything????? COUP!!! Coincidence!!!!


    You are both pathetic swine. You don’t even know the woman and you sit there on your fat a**** and say negative things about her. GROW UP you morons!!

    • Dr Evil

      O.K. my Arse is far from fat. And I know exactly what she wants me to know because I have watched her on TV. If there is something else she wants me to know then she should show it to me on her “reality” show. Now please grow up. BTW, you are pathetic because you actually think you know her. Clearly you are ignoring the things she has told the public:drug addicted, eating disorder, plastic surgery, blah, blah,blah.

  • Snarf

    By “in talks” they mean haggling over salary. Percacets are expensive!

  • AllieBoBallie

    Paula IS a bit kooky, but that’s part of her charm. I’m going to miss her so much when Idol returns. *Sigh* But! It would be delightful (and campy, I hope) to see her be vapid with Newton’s Amanda.

  • Jeff W.

    I don’t understand Paula’s appeal at all. She strikes me as a big, vapid zero who is more of an embarrassment than a talent. Who is clamoring to have this woman do anything? The masses are asses.

    I am glad that Paula will have a great career in front of her with my favorite show “Ugly Betty”. Good for you Paula….bad for American Idol. Big Mistake for letting her go. Duh! Did you not realize how loved she is and how much many of us looked to her critiques and showmanship. Her presence allowed Simon to look like an idiot…so ill mannered he is…She is so classy. She will be sorely missed.

  • ausiellomustsmokecrack

    to marlane sharple,

    You are the exact reason that networks continue to pump out the same garbage year after year.

    Thanks a lot…=x

  • Butters

    Paula is not leaving AI!!! I will stop watching this show if she’s back next season.

  • Liz

    Paula has her issues to be certain, but it was Simon’s constant childish prodding and whispering that annoyed me to no end. At least we know Kara won’t put up with that crap. Ryan makes me nuts, he’s annoying to the max. Not worth the money.
