I heard the news last night about Paula not returning to Idol. I can’t figure out if I’m just in denial, but I just don’t fully believe that Paula isn’t returning. It would be like removing the one remaining piece of entertainment from that show, and that doesn’t make sense.
Bonnie Fuller — she’s the exec who has worked at such publications as Us Weekly, Star, YM, Cosmo, and Marie Claire — Tweeted last night about Paula’s non-return to American Idol. According to Fuller, and she helmed Star so we have to take this with a grain of salt, Paula did ink a contract with AI and Abdul’s Twitter boo-hooing (Twhining?) is all a publicity stunt.
So, I think we have to wait and see on this. It’s entirely possible that Paula will come back in a week with a “We revisited negotiations and are happy to announce … ” Tweet. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Well, that didn’t take long. Fuller hit Twitter a few minutes ago to say that her sources felt the deal was done but Paula pulled out at the last minute. Apparently a 30% raise wasn’t enough for Ms. Abdul.

Wow, Bonnie, those are some pretty snarky Tweets – and I like it – but are we on the playground? Well, Paula doesn’t know where she is, so let’s tell her it is the playground and see how she reacts.
