Paging Paula Abdul?

Samantha Harris has resigned as co-host of Dancing with the Stars. While she referred to the show as her "dream job" in a statement," she said she won't return for season 10, which premieres on March 22.

Instead, Harris will focus on other television gigs, such as her correspondent duties at The Insider, which have grown in the last few months.

“I interned at Entertainment Tonight 15 years ago, the summer after my sophomore year at Northwestern and I dreamed of working in the same space as hosts Mary Hart and Mark Steines and now I’m living that dream,” said Harris, who apparently had multiple dreams.

Said Dancing with the Stars executive producer Conrad Green:

“Samantha has been a brilliant part of [DWTS] and we wish her the best of luck on The Insider. She’s done an incredible job. Some of the most memorable moments on the show have been facilitated by Samantha. I think we’ll all walk away with enormous happy memories of working with one another.”

Is Abdul now the obvious choice to replace Harris? Who do you wanna see in this role?
