We feel that Paula Abdul is at a crossroads of her career. Being booted from American Idol couldn't have been easy, but the release opens the doors to many opportunities to move forward.
So then why in hell are we hearing reports that she is taking a major step 20 years into the past and is seeing Arsenio Hall!?!? Where did you even find him? Stuck in some alternative universe known as the 80s?!
Actualy, we hear that Arsenio was the one to look up his old flame, after he heard about the swift kick she got from her AI gig. He gave her a call to offer some support and since then, they've been inseparable!
An insider claims:
"Arsenio reached out to Paula because he thought she needed a friend to talk to, someone she could relate to. Arsenio knows what it's like to leave a hit TV show. One phone call led to another, and the next thing you know, they were making a date. This could be the perfect situation for the two of them. Paula and Arsenio know each other inside and out."
Nah, we're not on board with this. She'd be using him for consoling while he'd be using her to get his name back in the limelight.
This relationship is best kept and saved in 1987, where it belongs!
