Paulagate: Has justice been served?

Surprise! After Fox’s extensive independent investigation of Corey Clark’s claims, the verdict is that Paula Abdul is guilty only of excessive ”fraternization” with the former contestant, as the investigators could find no corroborating evidence that she did more than spend a lot of time on the phone with him. Fox will implement a policy that will keep judges from such fraternization (and help reduce their phone bills), and no doubt the relieved Abdul will devote her free time to searching for the real fraternizers. Meantime, PopWatch wants to know: Is your faith in the impartiality of the American Idol judging process restored?

    Seeing as how the winner of American Idol seems to have a shorter career than William Hung lately, I can’t see why it would matter what the judges did to help any of the contestants. The decision should be taken out of the hands of idiot teenage girls and put in the hands of the judges… and the judges should all be replaced with people who are aware of the current (not the late 90s) state of pop music.

    I can’t imagine why they are keeping her – she adds absolutely no value to the show. Frankly, I wish they’d replace all of the judges – this show has become so stale.

    I think Paula Abdul is the worst thing about the show. They should replace her with someone who had talent in the 90’s. To snag from another popwatch note – what are those chicks from SWV doing – they would be great judges. Paula is the Janice Dickenson of ANTM – a train wreck, but without the funny insults.

    They were NEVER going to find that she had done anything wrong that would have hurt the whole show, so of course she was going to be cleared.
    How can you have a “singer” be a judge on AI, who could never pass the first round of auditions?

    I am super bummed out about this development. My plan was to sleep with Paula Abdul this fall so I could kick butt on the next Idol. Without her? I’ll have to rely on “Talent”. I guess there’s always “Survivor”, that is if they start accepting brown contestants again…

    while corey clark isn’t exactly mr. wholesome, i think abdul is guilty with a capital G. they even had her voice on tape saying “don’t talk to the press about any of this, corey.” HELLOOO?
    corporate giant gets away with another one…

    Paula is guilty and thier just saying she’s not to save that BORING show, she know she did wrong and once again the star is the victim and we the people are the guilty ones. Everybody need to start BANDING these shows when they start protecting GUILTY STARS.

    no way im glad she was cleared she would never stoop so low corey clark give me a break you people are idiots for saying what you say about paula get over it she didnt do it ,NOW go back to your boring lives.

  • Nancy Walker

    Steve, you are dense. Paula is like a cat in heat. She goes after what she wants. It is obvious from your statement that your brain was not in motion when you wrote your post. Go back and look at the old clips. She was drooling over Corey.
