Paula Abdul to Ellen DeGeneres: Good Luck!

by at . Comments

Paula Abdul is less than stable.

Therefore, while American Idol fans debated the merits of Ellen DeGeneres as a new judge on the show, many were also wondering: How the heck will Abdul react to this news?

Will she throw a fit? Get drunk? Run around the streets of Los Angeles naked? Really, no reaction from this loony singer would surprise us. Except for grace and humility, which is exactly what Paula showed in a recent Twitter message:

"I think Ellen will b a gr8 judge on Idol," she wrote Thursday evening. "She is wildly funny, talented and I wish her the best of luck!"

That's not nearly as entertaining as the other possible reactions.

Crazy Paula

Meanwhile, last season's newcomer, Kara DioGuardi, also praised the selection of DeGeneres. She said:

"[Ellen is] somebody who loves music, she's positive, she loves kids... She is somebody who has watched the show from the beginning, knows everything there is to know about American Idol and I think ultimately it's going to be a great new energy."

Viewers will find out in a few months, as season nine premieres in January.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
