IS IDOL KEEPING PAULA?
American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe tells TVGuide.com that he fully expects Corey Clark's alleged paramour, Paula Abdul, to rejoin Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson at the judges' table for the show's fifth season. "Certainly Simon is [returning]. And as far as I'm aware, Paula and Randy are as well," Lythgoe tells us. "I have no problem with bringing the three judges back for next season." But bringing back scary Scott Savol in any way, shape or form? Noooo flippin' way, dude.
