Paula Abdul Needs to Go to Bed

Remember that one time when Paula Abdul gave that interview while she was wasted out of her mind? No, silly, not that time. The other one. From last week.

Well, Paula’s rep, Jeff Ballard, had something to say about that little incident. Says Ballard:

She was exhausted. This was at the end of three days of press (interviews and appearances), and she has had cameras following her around for a reality TV show too. [Ed: That’s this one.] She was sitting in a room with just a camera and a mic on, and the controllers dropped the sound twice, which is why she rolled her eyes. She never drinks. I have known Paula Abdul since she was 13, and I have never seen her drink ever in my life. … And no, she is not on any kind of medication. She was a little tired.

She was “exhausted,” was she? Is she exhausted during every single taping of American Idol, too? Is that what she has in that Coca-Cola cup? Exhaustion? My lord, somebody get that woman a bed. In a rehab.

Paula canceled all media interviews the following day, citing a “sore throat” from the “chilly studio,” as well as a “hangover.”
