Paula Abdul Courted by ABC, For Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

All of a sudden, crazy is in crazy demand.

Paula Abdul is reportedly fielding a major offer from ABC. It comes with many zeroes attached to it, but one major catch:

TMZ reports the network has told Abdul it will give her a $1 million development deal... as long as she appears on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

For whatever reason, ABC wants Paula so badly it would still allow her to judge The X Factor with Simon Cowell on Fox, as those two met a week ago to discuss pairing up again on that upcoming show.

But, again, this deal is contingent on Abdul taking part on the new edition of Dancing with the Stars, which kicks off in March. It's not the first time she's been considered for the competition.

Our reaction to both parts of this rumor? First, does The X Factor really wish to replicate two judges from American Idol? Secondly, how can Abdul possibly be allowed to compete on Dancing with the Stars?!?

She's made her living as a choreographer. That would be akin to asking the THG staff to take part in Celebrity Blogging with the Stars. We wouldn't feel right doing it.

paula would be such a welcome.

She has already said she would not compete in the show...she is a professional dancer,..if she appears on it, it will be as a guest judge or special guest dance instructor....if you are going to report it, at least get your facts straight...geez

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
