Paula Abdul Named Woman of the Year
Forget Paula Abdul drunk for a minute.

Let's focus on Paula Abdul, Woman of the Year instead.

Indeed, American Idol descended on Las Vegas on Saturday to honor Abdul as she was named woman of the year by the Nevada Ballet Theatre. And she tried a little comedy on for size during her acceptance speech.

Paula poked fun at a bizarre pre-Idol interview with a local Seattle TV station earlier in the month.

"Don't ever give a swivel stool to someone who's very hyper and active because I will spin and spin and spin."

And who knew she was a master of sarcasm?

"I couldn't do it without the three men in my life," she said of fellow Idol stars Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest, who flanked her.

"Every time Randy Jackson opens up his mouth, I look like a Nobel Prize winner. Every time Simon Cowell opens his mouth, Borat sounds like a Nobel Prize winner... Ryan, I really do love him; almost as much as he loves himself. These three brothers are the best thing a girl can hope for, just ask my therapists."
