Paula Abdul: Straight Up, What's Next?

Paula Abdul

After storming out of American Idol in what equated to a very public huff, Paula Abdul is now unemployed. During last week's TV previews in Los Angeles, Fox execs said they were sad to see her go after a protracted contract dispute. Abdul also expressed her sadness in her initial tweet about her departure, but soon enough was talking about the "many wonderful offers" that have come her way since her announcement. (She's already filmed two guest spots for Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva and will reportedly drop in on Ugly Betty this fall.)

So dry off your hankies, America! Paula is going to be just fine. Just a few days after Fox's initial confirmation of her departure, journalists zeroed in on ABC Entertainment president Steve Macpherson, asking him if he'd bring Abdul into the Alphabet fold. "I think she's a huge talent," he said. "We'd love to get a piece of that." He even surprised the crowd when he announced that he had already called her to see if they could work together in the future.

But where could Abdul fit into ABC's strong lineup of doctors and housewives and snarky sitcoms? Let's weigh the options:

I am so over Orson and his lame blackmail scheme. How long before the writers put that story to rest and let Bree and Karl tie the knot on Desperate Housewives? — David
MICKEY: Poor Kyle MacLachlan — the writers really screwed him with all that kleptomania nonsense. The good news (for us, at least) is that Bree's emotional affair with Karl will take on a new dimension when they start sending dirty text messages to each other. As Emily Post might write longhand on personalized stationery: OMG!

Any Fringe scoop? — Lizbeth
MICKEY: Right off the bat in the first episode, one character's alliances will be questioned, and the answer will be heartbreaking... read more
