Simon Cowell Is Missing Paula Abdul

It was our favorite love-hate relationship on TV: Simon Cowell vs. Paula Abdul! Unfortunately, it’s now gone forever (or so it seems).

So, how does Simon feel about former friend and fellow American Idol judge?

He tells Extra’s Terri Seymour, “I miss her, of course,” adding that he’s remained uncharacteristically mum on her sudden exit because “doesn’t want to get in the middle” of her fight with American Idol producers.

The millionaire also admits that the chemistry between the remaining judges and the “guest judges” is way different.

“It’s like comparing a carrot to a banana,” he dished.
