Paula Abdul’s publicist must be working overtime. Possibly more than when she actually had a gig on American Idol.
The latest speculation is in a role on Ugly Betty (you remember that show, right?).
ABC has confirmed the network is in talks with her just days after ABC President of Entertainment Steve McPherson said publicly he’d love for her to appear on Dancing With The Stars.
But Entertainment Weekly says she’d be playing a new temp at Mode who bonds with Becki Newton’s Amanda on Betty.
Abdul already has a recurring turn on Drop Dead Diva, which was already in placebefore she quit Idol.
She also is being courted by her former Idol boss Nigel Lythgoe to become a choreographer and guest judge on the sixth season of So You Think You Can Dance.
