Paula Abdul on DWTS Season 10 – The Mystery Continues

Well, I feel like Paula might have clarified one thing in this recent interview – she won’t be a*contestant* on DWTS.  She could, however, be a judge.  But she’s kind of her usual incomprehensible self in this interview – you be the judge of what it is she’s trying to say.  From USA Today:

When asked to give a clue as to her next project, she said, “Drop a clue? Oh, I’m gonna be going back to my roots and doing a TV show that has something to do with my roots,” she said this morning on the morning radio program, afterdodging several questionsasking her to confirm rumors that she’ll be reunited with Simon Cowell on his new X Factor show.

“I’m going back to doing some teaching on television in that kind of capacity,” she added. “And what else can I tell you? I might be doing something with the Laker Girls.”

Of course, they’re asking specifically about X-Factor, but neither X-factor nor DWTS includes her “teaching” in an area that goes back to her “roots”. At least, not in my opinion. To me, her “roots” are in DANCE, not singing. The British version of X-Factor has that “mentoring” aspect where each judge mentors a singer – but I just don’t think that is her roots. DWTS would be her roots – but there is no teaching capacity on DWTS for her except as a pro….and I’m sorry that would be the last straw, IMO. In case you wonder why were talking about DWTS as a possibility, I direct you to my previous posts on the subject:

Paula’s Development Deal Part II

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 10 – The Co-Host Plot Thickens

:-)  My head is starting to spin.  But in any case, these “rumors” are from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. Lynn Hoffman, via Twitter (read from the bottom up for those unfamiliar with tweeting):

Now, some of that sounds like wishful thinking on the part of Lynn’s fans, and based on a poll at BuddyTV.com. However, Lynn’s responses, the second from the top in particular, make it sound like she’s really in the running! Or she thinks she is anyway. I’m not familiar with Lynn at all – is this a good thing or a bad thing? Fill me in people!

I have no objection at all to a relative unknown (relative to the other rumored contenders) taking the job – it might actually be a good idea.
