In today’s “American Idol” news, Paula Abdul has received a call from her old friend Stephen McPherson, the ABC programming chief. He told the Television Critics Association that he was stunned to hear about her departure from “American Idol” but that she is welcome to join “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.
Abdul has also had a similar comment from Nigel Lythgoe in reference to “So You Think You Can Dance.” Perhaps she should also join “Dance Your Ass Off” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.”
In other “American Idol” news, a source close the Idol production crew told several websites that guest judge Victoria Beckham was “icy and wooden” in her attempt. She was, apparently, trying too hard to be nice. I am shocked, SHOCKED, I TELL YOU, to hear that a snooty British pop star was icy and wooden.
