With the announcement that Paula Abdul will be joining her old friend Simon Cowell at the judges table on "The X Factor," we have our fingers crossed that she'll serve up some more of the wacky that we became accustomed to on "American Idol" and her short-lived reality show on Bravo, "Hey Paula."
Here are just a few of her best-worst moments:
Paula gets ahead of herself – Poor Jason Castro. It was bad enough that he had to listen to Paula babble on and on during his semi-finals performance, but once he made it on to the live show during season 7 she really flubbed.
In a now infamous moment, Paula offered up critiques of two of Castro's performances. Problem was, Castro had only sung one song at that point in the show. Oops!
"Imagine" that – David Archuleta was a cute-as can-be teen when he was trying to make it onto season 7 of "Idol." So much so that Paula wanted to take him home – sort of.
“David, you are ridiculous," she said after Archuleta's rendition of the John Lennon classic, "Imagine." "I wanted to squish you, squeeze your head off, and dangle you from my rear-view mirror.”
Smelly Paula – It wasn't on very long, but "Hey Paula" offered so much to love.
Not only were we treated to Paula freaking out because her assistant forgot to pack her comfy sweatsuit for a flight or breaking down in the makeup chair, but we also got a glimpse of Paula, the entrepreneur.
Who could forget her meeting with the very fine folks of Firmenich, Inc. as they helped her develop her first fragrance.
She sniffed, she moaned, she appeared to nod off before growling and pretending to bite the arm of one of the employees who offered up a scent sample. At one point, Paula refers to herself as a "mad scientist" as she generally acted pretty goofy. Her assistant chalked it up to Paula being "tired."
Say what Paula? – In 2007, Paula appeared a bit discombobulated during an interview with a Fox Seattle affiliate to promote season 6 of "American Idol."
She rocked, she giggled and she flailed her arms as the anchors chalked it up to "a audio problem." They quickly cut away, but things didn't get much better when they returned to her. We weren't sure what questions she was answering, but Abdul later said there was some confusion as to who she was talking to because there were so many interviews scheduled for that day.
Very nice site!
She tinkled on me once, i swear
your not supposed to pee in your pants Heann.
O.k., so it's been a number of hours since my last post and I'm still looking to bum a smoke. Anyone?!
I mean, come on ... I'm Patrick Swayze damnit!!!
i'd space this goofy broad upside down and sideways allday. no doubt about it. then i'd dump her right before game 1 of the nba finals. that's right. i'm a cb. deal with it.
She is completely meshugah.
Hello beautiful girl haha
That crack is whack but I'd still like to butter her muffin.
I've never seen the show american idol it just never sounded very entertaining. But its impossible to not notice all the headlines Paula generates. My exposure to her was her early years as the song and dance queen. I hope her pill addiction can be tamed because I've lived with and arround people who suffer from this poweful and debilitating addiction and its a very dangerous to your health. Quit now Paula don't blow out your heart because pills can kill.
sorry, you're not a credible source
I'm Patrick Swayze and I'm back from the dead ... anyone got a smoke?
Datura – la Yerba del Diablo -
Anyone know what was Paula on for that Faux News interview? i want me some of that. . .
Some people considered geniuses possess what might be considered madness. (Simon Cowell probably got a mountain of letters after Abdul left "Idol" asking "Why?" and pleading for her return.) On the other hand, the two of them fought and made up with each other, but often agreed on the artists' ability to perform. I think viewers-and Simon-miss that bizarre friction the two had with one another.
Cocaine's a helluva drug
Sheeee it girlfriend!
