Paula Abdul Won't Say Whether She's Reuniting With Simon Cowell on 'X Factor'
If Paula Abdul is headed to Simon Cowell's 'The X Factor,' she's feigning ignorance. On 'The Tonight Show,' Jay Leno asked whether she missed working with him as an 'American Idol' judge. "Of course, I miss everybody," she said diplomatically.
Cowell discussed Abdul during a call with reporters earlier this week. "I'm a massive fan of Paula's. When you work with somebody as long as I did with Paula ... we were friends 80 percent of the time and interestingly, we've been in contact [after 'Idol']. I'm not going to say on this call who we are going to confirm or not confirm, but we're talking to a number of people."
Cowell and his new show made big news this week when it was announced that the winner would take home a massive $5 million prize along with a Sony recording contract. "This is not a dressed-up $5 million," said Cowell in the media conference call while explaining that the victor will receive a $1 million check once a year for five years, from which recording and marketing expenses will not be deducted.
