‘Idol’ Auditioner Found Dead at Paula Abdul’s House

TMZ reports that police located former American Idol hopeful Paula Goodspeed’s body in a car a few yards from AI judge Paula Abdul’s home last night.

Goodspeed, who was reportedly stalking Abdul, appears to have died of a drug overdose/suicide.

In 2005, Goodspeed tried out for and was featured on Idol during season five in a short segment demonstrating her love for Abdul. She brought along various drawings she had made of the “Straight Up” singer.

Goodspeed, who said at the time she was referred to as “Fashion Genius”, experienced mockery from Simon Cowell (as have others) over her braces and pink wardrobe. She did not make the cut.

Ventura County Authorities were alerted to Goodspeed’s disappearance by her family at 3 p.m. yesterday. Relatives suggested to police that she might be found in the vicinity of Paula’s house because of an “unnatural obsession” with the reality show mistress.

Abdul was reportedly not home at the time of the discovery. Police reported that they have had to deal with Goodspeed and her Abdul fixation “numerous times.”
