Paula Abdul says American Idol producers and Simon Cowell tried to ruin her career
In an interview with Barbara Walters’ XM radio show, American Idol judge Paula Abdul reveals how furious she is with the Idol producers.
Remember when Paula’s stalker committed suicide outside of Paula’s home last month? The stalker (Paula Goodspeed) auditioned for American Idol awhile back.
Paula said she warned producers not to let her on the show, but they did it anyway.
Paula said, “I said this girl is a stalker of mine and please do not let her in. She had been writing disturbing letters for 17 years, almost 18 years. We had restraining orders at times. It’s fun for them to cause me stress. This was something that would make good television.”
Paula also said the stalker sent her naked pictures of herself and said “the only way I will serve her purpose is when I’m up in heaven being her guardian angel.”
She said, “This was an attempt by Fox Broadcasting, the producers of American Idol and Simon Cowell to ruin my career.”
She’s still wasn’t done yet. Remember how Paula always appears spaced out and crazy on the show?
Paula said, “Part of it is what people don’t realize is that Simon is in my ear while I’m talking. He says crazy things while I’m trying to formulate something with grace and dignity. He’s saying it over and over again and I start to laugh, and Ryan’s says what are you laughing at?” and it makes her look nutty.
