In news almost as shocking as Lindsay Lohan going to bed with Heath Ledger, Paula Abdul was a train wreck during her stint as Saturday Night Live host in 2005.

So reports Tina Fey in the latest issue of Playboy.

"I was pregnant [with daughter Alice] at the time and probably a little moody, but I remember thinking, 'She's a disaster! I gotta prop this lady up and get her on TV,'" Fey, who was head writer of the series at the time, shared.

Fey said Abdul was "disastrous ... in the way she generally appears to be. "It was an American Idol sketch; she wanted to change parts. So Amy Poehler had to play her."

A year later, the 30 Rock actress spotted Abdul on a flight.

"We both looked at each other like, 'Do I know that girl?'" she said. "And then we both had that moment of recognition, and she was like, 'uuuggh.' I saw it register on her face that she had had a terrible time with us."
