Paula Abdul: JT Torregiani is a Good Guy

by at . Comments

Paula Abdul is known for doling out the highest of praise to the lowliest of contestants on American Idol.

So we're not sure how her new boyfriend, JT Torregiani, should feel after Paula simply referred to him as a "good guy." That's all she could muster?

On this morning's Today show, host Matt Lauer teased the Hey Paula and American Idol star that she once compared her romantic life to "a horror movie." He then asked if she were currently dating.

The response, People magazine posted? Abdul replied that things were "looking upwards â€" things are looking good right now."

As she was being cagey on any details, Abdul was confronted on air with a photograph of her and Torregiani at this week's New York premiere of Hairspray (starring young hottie Zac Efron).

Lauer then asked if her movie date was the reason for her happiness.

Abdul answered in the affirmative, saying her beau "is a good guy."

In June, Abdul celebrated turning 45 with a scavenger hunt and birthday bash â€" attended by friends and former American Idol contestants Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis â€" at Torregiani's West Hollywood eatery Ketchup, where he spent the entire night by her side.

Simon Cowell, we're guessing, calls the pairing "revolting" and "pathetic." Meanwhile, Randy Jackson says Torregiani is simply his "dawg."
