It's True: Fox Confirms Paula Departure

Fox, FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment have officialy confirmed Paula Abdul’s departure from American Idol and released the following statement:

“Paula Abdul has been an important part of the American Idol family over the last eight seasons, and we are saddened that she has decided not to return to the show. While Paula will not be continuing with us, she’s a tremendous talent and we wish her the best.”

We love how they make it sound like they had nothing to do with her leaving, when we all know if they had paid up, she’d still be on the show.
But the question remains, if Paula really worth that much money?
Sources say Abdul asked for about $20 million to continue with the show. She even rejected a 30% raise which would have given her an eight-figure multi-year deal.
Whatever the amount was, we’re betting it still wasn’t as much as Ryan Seacrest’s raise, which is probably why she declined.
So now we’re stuck with boring Kara DioGuardi.
DioGuardi better loosen up or develop an alcohol problem a personality, because she’s just too dull to fill the shoes of our beloved Abdrool.
Now what will Paula do?
