Paula to Return to American Idol

Paula Abdul will most likely be returning to American Idol.

She told the Associated Press on Tuesday that she has been invited to remain as a judge on the show. She says she’s optimistic about negotiating a new contract.

Paula said in a statement, "I've been invited to stay the duration of the show, however long it lasts.”

The invitation is subject to an agreement on the details of a new contract. Paula called the panel of judges on Idol “a dysfunctional family of sorts.”

She said, "I'm the nurturing mom, Simon's the disapproving dad, and Randy's the cool brother. It's been an interesting journey. It's something that I'll always would want to be a part of."

We’re so glad Paula is coming back! That show would be so boring without her! Let’s hope she doesn’t get too diva with her new contract!
