Paula Abdul to Join Dancing With the Stars?

It seems that pretty much everyone wants Paula Abdul except for the producers of American Idol these days.

Hot on the heels of news that So You Think You Can Dance honcho Nigel Lythgoe is considering bringing her into the fold, People magazine reports that Dancing With the Stars would like a crack at her too.

“Absolutely. I would love that,” ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Saturday, when asked if he’d like to bring Paula on board for DTWS.

Last year, Abdul gushed that she would be “honored” to appear on Dancing With the Stars.

So would Paula be a judge, pro dancer or celeb contestant on the show? McPherson says that he would take her any way he could get her.

“I think she’s a huge talent,” McPherson ehthused. “There’s a sensitivity and an empathy that balances out Idol, and we’d love to get a piece of that.”
