Ugly Betty gig for Abdul?

paula-abdulPaula 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.

  1. I guess because Idol was such a high rating show last year in US…everyone’s gonna want a piece of the Paula now! But there’s no way she’ll earn more money in the end than if she’d just accepted the salary (which was pretty high) and stayed on, not demanding more.

    I’ve always wanted to see Paula show more of her dancing ability on TV. I reckon she’s a better dancer than a singer. I hope to see her on SYTYCD
