Paula Abdul Swamped With TV Offers

By: Celebuzz / August 6, 2009

Don’t feel bad for Paula Abdul just yet.

The beloved American Idol Judge, who just announced that she would not be returning for the upcoming season of the show due to contract disputes, isn’t going to be pressed for dough.

Just two days after the announcement, some exciting things are coming through for the entertaining celeb.

Yesterday, Abdul flew to Peachtree City, Georgia, to finish shooting her upcoming cameo on the Lifetime dramedy Drop Dead Diva.

In addition, at least two mega-popular TV shows are interested in reserving a seat for the Idol judge: The View and Dancing With The Stars.

Rumor is that producers of The View would love to have Paula on board. “We love Paula,” a rep for the show tells E! “She was always welcome on the program in the past and always will be in the future.”

DWTS judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, who has wanted to work with Paula in the past, also has high hopes for the star to join his show as a judge.

He told reporters, “Absolutely there’s no question about that. I don’t know anyone who’s had her experience. I’ve been trying to get her since season one. I spoke to her yesterday morning. We didn’t talk about the negotiations. That’s a private issue,” he said. “We’re going to Vegas for season six this weekend and she’s coming out to meet me and we’re going to talk about what opportunities are out there.”
