When the Checks Stop Coming In: Paula “Act-A-Fool” Abdul Quits American Idol!

- By Bossip Staff

If you remember correctly, we told you a minute back that Paula was on her way out the door, right? Her manager can really get mad now, because the checks have officially stopped coming in:

“With sadness in my heart…

…I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all… I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon. What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me. It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month.”

Straight up now tell me, do you think she has loot stacked?

    Quit my azz, she was pushed!! Hope she invested wisely.

  • Sasha

    She was asked to leave, that is why they brought that kara on there last year to get her ready to take over Paula’s spot.

  • sassy

    Now it makes sense why they brought the fourth judge on and why Paula did that stupid act on there last season when she danced and sang LOL that was her goodbye, she knew.

    I hope that they dont replace her with that other chick, I cant stand her.


    Paula was so cute back then…now…she scares me.

    Yeah…she is chipped up…they probably paid her some sort of severance package…

    I am sorry Paula, that wasn’t a good move. Whatever they offered her she should have taken it, $8 million ad over a season is a lot of money, how much was she making when she was singing?

  • nahnah

    y does paula look but? she ain’t got no black in her!

  • WhiteHittinCoon

    I’d still hit Paula’s fine ass. She got body.

  • http://google Dee Dee

    Word is,Paula gets 15mils- while ryan seacrest gets 45mils-ain’t no telling what is Simon getting-If u ask me they all are getting too much! Whatz the deal? Everyone except Hollywoodz is in a recession?

  • honey

    Good for her. I hate that damn fake azz show!

  • True Blud

    THANK GOD! she got some nerve telling people how to sing! She should be a judge on a dance show.

    Know your talents, boo boo

    Call her crazy or whatever you want but Paula had a lot of fans and was well liked even though she could get on your nerves! I feel their ratings will sag. How much they sag remains to be seen, but her departure will hurt the show in my opinion. I think she caught a raw deal with how it all went down. The producers could of at least been up front with her with their intentions. They knew from the get go they were replacing Paula when they brought the new chick in. Anyhoo I think it’s time for her to move on to bigger and better things and close this chapter in her life, which it looks like she’s doing. Paula will be fine. She made plenty of money off of this show!

    Sorry Paula…Maybe if you’d lay off the bottle you could keep your job.

  • Jay the Real One

    Bad move all around, the show is her and Simon. Her for her..quirks his for the snarkiness. The day after the show 90% of the talk is Paula, “was she high”? “she is so gushy”. All that money they gave to Seacrest and nobody cares about him at all.

  • Lady J

    Of course she has loot stacked up…but the problem with Paula is that although she was getting much less that seacrest and randy, having some money is better than nothing…Even in Hollyweird women are subjected to the same prejudices of equal pay

  • B

    Blah blah. She wanted more cash and the producers said NO!
    End of story.
    Besides AI is losing it ratings anyway.And it is starting to be like the older episodes of the real world. Nothing but a bunch of lily white kids imitating r&b superstars with a token brother on the side.

    You can’t possibly trust anything on American Idol but it is comical.

    Stand Up Black People!

  • Whatever

    She may come back. It can be a ratings scam. She may have producing credits for the show, starting her own reality show or just don’t want to be bothered.

  • sosad

    Idol is on it’s last leg! Folks are getting tired of the show and everybody’s coming out of the wood work saying how the show is rigged etc. etc. Paula was boo hoo’n over more money and it’s no surprise she won’t be coming back. Like other posters have said, that’s why they brought that new heffa on board. It was planned all along to be Paula’s replacement. It’s best she move on anyway, so she can get plastered in peace. Bye Paula! See you on celebrity rehab.
