It doesn't take much to make Paula Abdul cry.

Therefore, we can only imagine how the American Idol judge reacted upon breaking up with restaurateur J.T. Torregiani.

The pair parted ways approximately two months ago, but no one cared enough about either to report it at the time; Torregiani has moved out of the American Idol judge's Los Angeles home.

"She's doing fine," a friend of Abdul's told Us Weekly. "She has moved on with her life."

Paula Abdul has a new roommate. And we're not talking about another tiny, annoying dog.

The American Idol judge and JT Torregiani are now living together in her Beverly Hills home after just five months of dating, according to an insider in In Touch Weekly's October 8 issue, who added the couple is "already talking about getting married."

Looks like you're not alone, Anna Chlumsky and Shaun So!

"She is a different person since he came into her life," the entertainment news source said. "She has lost seven pounds and always goes to the gym."

Abdul and Torregiani first met in April following an American Idol taping and began dating as the sixth-season wrapped its broadcast run.

"She would love to try for a family," the insider told In Touch, supporting a previous statement made by Abdul that children are the "next step" in her life.

When it was announced that Ryan Seacrest would host the Emmy Awards, many viewers were scared that the American Idol host would try to sing, dance or be funny.

But he did an okay job.

The most frightening people at the ceremony were still related to Idol, however, as Paula Abdul and her man candy, JT Torregiani, did their best wax statue impersonation.

Torregiani is the owner of Hollywood hot spot, Ketchup, the scene of a confrontation on The Hills last night between Lauren Conard, Jason Wahler, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.

Abdul, of course, is the drunk American Idol judge.

Together, these two form a pair that's almost as scary as a pissed off OJ Simpson.

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."

JT Torregiani may be bumping Paul Sculfor out of the celebrity boyfriend headlines.

A day after Paula Abdul's awful new reality series, Hey Paula, debuted on Bravo, celebrity gossip circles are abuzz over something else new in her life. Or, to be more precise, someone new.

Us Weekly reports in the new issue that for the past few months the American Idol judge has been dating restauranteur JT Torregiani. He threw a 45th birthday party for his lady on June 19 at Ketchup, a West Hollywood eatery he co-owns with actress Tara Reid.

So the guy obviously knows how to keep good company. And name restaurants.

Meet JT Torregiani, the guy lucky enough to reportedly see Paula Abdul nude every night.

"You could tell she was so happy to be with him," says a witness at the bash, which included American Idol alums Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Chris Richardson. "They were cuddling all night."

Abdul and Torregiani met through friends and a source says they're getting almost as serious as Joel Madden and Nicole Richie.

"She introduces him to everyone as her boyfriend," the insider says. "It's really cute how she's so smitten."

Almost as cute as how drunk she is all the time. We wonder if Simon Cowell is jealous.
