Although she was so sure she'd have tons of offers and a talk show by now, Paula Abdul is feeling a little glum now that Ellen DeGeneres will now be sitting in her Idol seat come January.
And everyone loves her!
"She is a breath of fresh air that is so easy to work with," said a source. "Everyone in front of the cameras and behind all adore her, particularly 'Mr. Mean,' Simon Cowell, who Ellen has already challanged to a dance-off!"
Paula is finally realizing that it was a mistake to quit the show!
"Paula was full of optimism when she left 'Idol.' She was confident she would get her own talk show and even a gig performing live on the Las Vegas strip — none of which has materialized. It's going to get worse in January when 'Idol' is everywhere with Ellen sitting in her seat," claims a friend of the former judge.
Poor thing! We wish she'd do another reality show!
