Paula Abdul as host of “Star Search?”
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the former “American Idol” judge is in final negotiations to head up an updated version of the show.
Ed McMahon hosted the talent competition in the 1980s. Another version of the show was launched in 2003 hosted by Abdul’s ex-beau, Arsenio Hall.
Fans of Abdul have eagerly been awaiting her return to the airwaves since she announced in August 2009 that she was leaving “Idol.” The singer-dancer-choreographer made that announcement via Twitter but so far has remained mum about “Star Search.”
