Paula Abdul’s Future: Now taking bets

» More Media > American Idol

It was only a matter of time before our inbox was overrun by Paula Abdul press releases. There’s the one about AOL’s running poll on whether you believe Corey Clark’s allegations and whether Fallen Idol will actually help the show.

And then there’s the one about betting on the outcome of Paula Abdul’s career. Will she or won’t she be fired? You can place your bets at, where the current odds are:

YES 1:6 -$600 **Risk $600 to win $100
NO 4:1 +$400 **Risk $100 to win $400

(Okay, we admit it, we’re not entirely sure what all those numbers mean, but anything beats our 1:2 odds of having fathered a child.)

And just like the press release’s origin, is also based in Costa Rica – so don’t worry about the feds bothering your Internet gambling (well, so long as you do it from outside the confines of U.S. borders).
