Paula Abdul Simon Cowell X Factor Editing

If you've been paying attention over the last decade to the boob tube, you know most reality television is edited to look as "dramatic" as possible.

Sometimes facial expressions from other scenarios will be used for certain scenes to add shock value, sometimes character pauses are prolonged to mirror those of daytime soap operas, etc..

But those involved within the reality AREN'T SUPPOSED TO SAY IT!!!

But that's exactly what Paula Abdul did during a heated moment with Simon Cowell at the X Factor premiere.

Simon said Paula and Nicole Scherzinger usually voted against any attractive woman, to which Paula defensively replied, "not true!"

Cowell then retorted with, "look at the tape," and without missing a beat, Paula went, "but WHO edits the tapes???"

Uh-oh! Pauullllaaa….. That's a burn AND a boo-boo all at the same time!

    reality tv is as fake as your average sitcom.



  2. 2

    Simon is not a stupid man- they have a copies of the tape - more than one naturally
    before and after it is edited
    so she can look at it in it's entirety before editing for time constraints for an hour show as well as for maximum drama/interest for the audience
    wouldn't be surprised it Simon were correct
    sad to say that women can really be nasty/competitive etc. with other women

    Paula Abdul is a no-talent clinger & wouldn't even be a topic if it wasn't for Simon Cowell rescuing her. I've had enough of both of them.

    The only good reality shows are those that Cowell isn't on
