It took Barbara Walters to get it out of him, but Simon Cowell has finally admitted what everyone's been thinking…
The sexual tension between he and Paula Abdul was infuriating!! But according to him, it was mainly on her.
I mean, the truth was, on the first two seasons, we couldn’t travel on the same plane together. We really disliked each other that much. Sexual tension…on her part. [She wanted me] a million percent. I considered it, but then I thought, I don’t think the after would be as good as the before.
But good thing he decided to keep it professional. Could you imagine the mess it would have caused on the show?? We can!!!!
