Paula Abdul on X Factor on Newsfeed - Paula Abdul has just been confirmed as a judge for the Fox show X-Factor premiering this fall alongside her former American Idol judge partner Simon Cowell. Finally… I can stop my “When will Paula get back on TV?” count down. Paula left American Idol under some precarious circumstances when it was rumored that she was behavior issues caused by prescription drug use. Come on guys, it is totally normal to sway in your chair, slur when you talk and cry over nothing. Right guys? In an interview with David Letterman in 2007, she joked that her erratic behavior was caused by being abducted by aliens for a short period. Yeah, straight up, I am telling you that those Aliens did not want to love her forever… she was just caught up in a hit and run.Everyone in the whole world has been clamoring for two things: world peace and Paula Abdul's involvement in another singing reality show.
