Not only is Paula Abdul being courted to appear on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” as either a contestant or guest judge, but word has it that the exiting “American Idol” jurist may be guest starring on ABC’s “Ugly Betty.”
Abdul reportedly met with ABC entertainment head Steve McPherson on Tuesday to discuss opportunities for her on the network, including her own show, according to TMZ.com.
“We’re told Stevie M. wants Paula to be a contestant on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ in the worst way,” TMZ reported. “We’re told there was talk of making her a guest judge but that’s not gonna happen, and we know why. Paula and Carrie Ann Inaba don’t get along.
“But McPherson, who’s friends with Paula, wants more from her than ‘Dancing.’ There’s talk of Paula doing a guest appearance on ‘Ugly Betty.’ And we’re told Paula has a show in mind with her name on it.”
