Paula Abdul: Ugly Betty Bound!

by at . Comments

Paula Abdul is remaining in primetime. At least for one night.

While she may still participate on Dancing with the Stars and she may even return to American Idol, the former judge has lined up her next gig.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Paula will guest star on a fall episode of Ugly Betty. If the deal goes through, sources say she'll play a new temp that gets close with Becki Newton’s Amanda.

Think this is a good career move? Is Ugly Betty wacky enough to keep up with Abdul's antics?


** UPDATE: ABC has confirmed that Abdul will actually NOT appear on Ugly Betty. That's too bad.

Paula Abdul Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

The producers come up to us in the dark and said, 'We are not going to have you guys judge after each performer, we are going to have all the performers go once, then twice and at the end critique them.'
