The return of Paula Abdul? Maybe not

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Paula Abdul walked away from her judging duties on "American Idol" (to be replaced by Ellen DeGeneres, who got into it last night with ol' Simon Cowell), and everyone asked what the heck she'd do next? What could she do?

A rumor was floated this week in the National Enquirer that Abdul had received the personal "go-ahead" from Oprah Winfrey to assemble a pilot chat show of her own on OWN, Oprah's forthcoming cable network. She was allegedly going to have celebs on the show "telling inspirational stories."

But that's not true, according to Harpo reps, who told "Access Hollywood" that there is "no truth to the rumor." Even Abdul's own PR person couldn't confirm it.

So we're back to the original rumors: that she'll follow Simon as a judge to his new U.S. talent show, "The X Factor," set to launch in fall 2011.

When pressed about the rumors on a radio show, she said, "Drop a clue? Oh, I'm gonna be going back to my roots and doing a TV show that has something to do with my roots."
