“Dancing With The Stars” Wants Paula Abdul
The job offers continue to pour in for Paula Abdul. ABC has invited Abdul to join its ballroom dance series, Dancing with the Stars, after learning that the former American Idol judge will not return to her post on the top-rated FOX talent competition next season.
“I would love that,” ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson told reporters at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Pasadena on Saturday. “I was a little stunned by the decision, and we would love to have her on ‘Dancing,’ as a contestant, participant or judge.”
He added, “I think she’s a huge talent. I think there’s a lot made of her in terms of who she is… There’s a sensitivity and an emotion to her that balances out Idol, and we’d love to have a piece of that.”
