Paula Abdul Picture
As insane as Paula Abdul is, you'd think she'd comprehend the reasons why she can't exactly appear on Dancing with the Stars. In case you're reading, Paula, those would be:
  1. You're on a reality show on a competing network, something called American Idol;
  2. You're a professional dancer!

Nevertheless, Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron appeared as a guest on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show last week and said he spoke with Abdul in the hallway at CBS' Television City, where both Idol and Dancing tape. She's serious about her desire to dance.

"This very attractive young woman came up to me and said she'd really like to be part of Season 7," said Bergeron.

"[Abdul] said, 'I have no ballroom training - obviously, I've been a choreographer - but I have no ballroom training and I'd love to be part of [Dancing with the Stars].' And I said, 'What about Fox? Won't they be...' and she said, 'No, no. I can do this. I can do this.' I said, 'Paula, if you believe that, then I've got your back!'"

So do we! The more Paula Abdul on television, the better, we say!
