Now that Paula quit or was forced out of Idol she's going to be looking for some new source of income. Since her short-lived reality series Hey Paula wasn't exactly riveting, putting her on a candid reality show doesn't seem like a good idea. Instead we've found some current competitive reality shows (and one drama) that may want to consider welcoming Paula with open arms.
OK! Magazine is boldly proclaiming that "a source close to" Paula Abdul told them she's looking to leave American Idol in order to pursue other projects. Yes, because the woman who was fired from the Bratz dolls movie and who couldn't even carry a Bravo reality show better than a bunch of Orange Country trophy twits can really only go up from the biggest show on television, can't she? Especially when she's not even expected to show up to work remotely sober, or to speak coherent English when on camera.
The truth: the only way Paula Abdul is ever leaving American Idol is if she's dragged out, kicking and screaming. Too harsh? Don't worry, she's way too high to read this.

On this Friday the 13th, it's good luck for Game of Thrones fans and bad luck for Paula Deen lovers.
Pride is one of the seven deadly sins, but inappropriate behavior should really be added to that list.
We're not sure that anyone actually demanded an inside look at Paris Hilton's life, but nevertheless, Oxygen is rolling out The World According to Paris this week. To be honest, we'll probably tune in only because we think she's strangely fascinating and, whether you like it or not, extremely talented in the art of self-promotion (for example: a show called The World According to Paris airing on Oxygen). But with that said, there are plenty of other celebrities that we would've rather seen as the focus of a series like this. Here's just a few:
While we've been hearing for months about all of the very special guest judges who are taking on the audition rounds (from Neil Patrick Harris to Katy Perry and everyone in between), the looming question has been if anyone would take over the fourth seat vacated by Paula Abdul on a permanent basis. Well, we now have an answer: Yes, Ellen DeGeneres. Hiring the popular daytime talk show host and comedian instead of any of the music industy vets we had hoped for could be a stroke of genius -- or it could spell disaster for TV's top-rated program. We've weighed the pros and cons of Idol's newest judge.
It's Tuesday, which means we'll see if Idol decides to take my suggestions to slim down... a girl can dream, can't she? Anyway, there's lots of random things happening in the world, not really any of them that are good or interesting.
What has six legs, three heads and destroys dreams? Answer: The judging table of American Idol. Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson have been breaking untalented American hearts for years, but now they're about to grow a new head, because four heads can break hearts 30% faster. Award-winning songwriter Kara DioGuardi -- who's lived with Paula Abdul, worked with multiple AI contestants and writes half of the mainstream pop played on radios nowadays -- is joining the judges' table in Tuesday night's premiere. To get to know this newcomer/industry veteran, we sat in on a conference call where she talked about her catchphrase, the new Cowell-centric voting system and which former Idol she'd like to work with.
