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."
