shut up and dance

If Paula Abdul is doing "Hey, Paula" to improve her image in some way, I think she made a HORRIBLE decision.
In the show, Paula described herself as "...just an everyday girl." Sure she is. An everyday girl with people who are paid to kiss her ass 24/7.
Hell, she bawled out her assistant for not packing her damn sweatpants and because Paula couldn't locate her ID. Oh, yeah, everyday girl.
On the episode I caught on Wednesday, they were sure to drill two things into our heads: Paula is a busy woman and Paula is not getting any sleep. At one point Paula said she slept 45 minutes to an hour in six days. Hmmm, why am I not buying a word of that bullshit? Of course this was the show that led up to the infamous "is she drunk?" interviews, so I guess their theory is that if they say "Paula is punchy because she hasn't had any sleep" often enough, we'll believe it. I hate to be the one to tell them it's not working. Not even close. You know how when you're allegedly drunk, you think that if you talk really carefully, no one will notice? Only everyone notices because you ARE talking so carefully? That's exactly how she talks all the time. And when she rushes into speech here and there, she's garbled and difficult to understand, as if she's talking with marbles in her mouth.

If this chick had ANY dignity, she'd pull
the plug on this show NOW. She's coming off as an selfish airhead, especially when she utters such asinine statements as "I'm tired of people not treating me like the gift that I am."

Here's another timeless Paula Abdul gem from when she kicked her first husband, Emilio Estevez, out of their marital mansion and filed for divorce:

"You don't want me as your wife, you want a nobody!"

Or, something like that. She allegedily yelled it out the bedroom window as she pitched his stuff out on top of him as he stood on the lawn. She was so loud, the neighbours could hear the whole fight. Yikes.

My word confirmation for that last comment was detoxt. Too funny.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's horrible.

At the time she was married to Emilio, Stacey, I think she more than qualified for a "nobody".

Actually, her career was in high gear when they met and married. He accompanied her that year to the Grammies and she won. She was so big they had a bodyguard with them throughout their honeymoon up here in Canada, where nothing happens to celebs unless the cause or invite it to. She was the bigger star in that marriage. Definitely. But, she alleges he wanted a wife who was content to be like his mother, a stay in the shadows homemaker and mother. That's something the very ambitious Paula could never do. Not even in her second marriage.
