Who would have thought that Ladies' Home Journal would resort to tabloid-like rumors one expects from The National Enquirer?
A few days ago, an article in that publication certainly implied that Paula Abdul had a painkiller addiction that was treated at rehab. But the American Idol judge now says that story was blown out of proportion.
Way, way, way out of proportion.
"I want to make it perfectly clear to everyone that I have never been addicted to or abused drugs in my life," Abdul said in a statement yesterday. "I have never been drunk. I have never entered a rehab or detox treatment center."
But what about her time at La Costa Resort? Turns out, that was nothing more than a relaxing vacation.
"I spent time hiking, bicycling, doing yoga and enjoying the spa. As anyone who has visited the La Costa Resort knows, it is a luxury hotel, not a rehab facility."
There you have it, folks. Forget drugs or alcohol. Abdul is simply crazy on her own.
