I am not surprised and I hope it is true. 8 months ago I said it on more than one occasion that I did not expect her to be back. I personally think Kara was added for the sole purpose of replacing her. The show does not have to pay big money for her given they have Kara and Paula is not a major piece of the show. The show in my opinion is the contestents and comments from Simon. The comments from the other judges could stay or go.. The show would not take a hit.

The show has gotten to far away from its original purpose. To much jabbing between Simon and Ryan. Also too much interaction between Paula and Simon. If this change sticks, one of those annoyance will be removed.

I basically stopped watching this rubbish over three years ago.

MODS - the heading needs to be updated - she's not coming back...

Film at 11....

The heading could get long and confusing. According to this L.A. Times article:

Hours after she tweeted to the world that she was leaving "American Idol," Paula Abdul was in discussions this morning for her possible new gig: as a judge and choreographer on "So You Think You Can Dance," which is produced by Nigel Lythgoe, her former boss on "Idol."


EDIT: And TVWeek is aggregating the tweets and news on Abdul here. Good lord, you'd think the North Korean's jailed Bill Clinton or something.
