Open Post: Hosted By Paula Abdul Claiming She’s Been Asked To Appear On “The Real Housewives” Several Times
If you watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then you know about the Homeless Not Toothless foundation that Dorit Kemsley really cares about. She hosted a silent auction this weekend, and while, of course, there were tons of her RHOBH co-stars in attendance, there was one bright shining star of a class all her own as well: Paula Abdul. And wouldn’t you know it, Miss Paula claims that she’s been asked “many, many times” to be on the franchise–and not just on RHOBH–and while she would fit right in because she’s friends with so many of the women, she’s always turned it down. Paula Abdul turning down an easy check? Hmm… I’m skeptical. And didn’t Nicolette Sheridan just pull a similar trick for attention?
Paula Abdul is in the news for– oh, wait. Shit! I added the wrong picture to this article. It was supposed to be a photo of Paula and Kathy Hilton. And while the blonde one is definitely Kathy, who in the flying fuck is the brunette chick? One of those Addison Rae/Charli D’Amelio TikTok types? THIS JUST IN: Page Six reports that the mystery lady on the left is allegedly 60-year-old Paula Abdul. And just like that, 2022 has given us a “PAUL(A) IS DEAD” Beatles-style death conspiracy!
Paula Abdul may not be able to name a single winner of the rebooted American Idol but that doesn’t mean she’s going to turn down a check from them! After country singer and judge, Luke Bryan, revealed yesterday that he had contracted COVID-19, it was announced that Paula would fill in for him when the show started the first live shows. She sure filled that space; using her return to the Idol stage to call former original judge Simon Cowell “the STD.”
American Idol debuted in 2002 and during the first few seasons, it delivered actual stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and the biggest star of them all, William Hung. While it had a solid few years, the show originally judged by Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and Randy Jackson fizzled out. It cycled through a plethora of judges including Ellen Degeneres for some reason, and even though it kept eternal host Ryan Seacrest rolling in the money, it finally came to a close in 2016 after 14 years on the air on Fox… And was subsequently remade and brought back to ABC in 2018 to once again keep Ryan Seacrest in the money. OG judge and iconic mess Paula talked about the show on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live! and she was perfectly PC, but when he asked her to name a reboot winner, she couldn’t. Skat Kat got her tongue!
I saw a tweet once, and at the time, I thought it was one of the most laughably deranged theories of the QAnon era. Today, I’m not so sure. When failed California Republican Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine tweeted her suspicion that the Fox TV show The Masked Singer might have been used as a tool of the “demonic media” to “condition the public” to believe that masks are “normal” and “cool,” I guffawed. However, according to TVLine, just as Joe Biden is positioned to possibly become the next President of the United States and has floated the idea of a national mask mandate to curb the spread of COVID-19, Fox is set to debut a Masked Singer spin-off called The Masked Dancer. I have to admit, I’m sitting here asking myself; could it be that DeAnna had a point? I mean besides the one at the top of her pinhead?
It’s not that the Grammys are for your parents, the Grammys are your parents. Old, strict, self-serious, adore Adele, and are prone to making arbitrary decisions like letting JLo perform a Motown medley. Just ask Halsey who basically yelled at them “you’re not the boss of me” during her acceptance speech last night at the American Music Awards. The AMAs are your cool, twice-divorced aunt who taught you how to french inhale and has a lover in Madrid who she visits every Spring. As such, she’s a lot more fun. But unlike your parents who actually clothe, house, and feed your ungrateful ass, her gifts are frivolous and tacky. But fun! That dynamic was reflected in the red carpet looks from last night’s AMAs. Risks were taken. Choices were made. For example, OG fun aunt Christina Aguilera showed up looking like a goddamn snack. A saltine cracker, specifically. Which is a shame because believe me, most of the people there were already very, very thirsty.
