VIDEO: Paula Abdul Jokes About Her Employment Status

You have to give Paula Abdul credit; she has a sense of humor, even about unpleasant situations.

The former American Idol judge—who abandoned her post in August following a high-profile salary dispute—has filmed a promo for her upcoming hosting gig on VH1 Divas, which airs on September 17.

In the promo, Abdul shows up at a Los Angeles employment agency looking for a new gig. When she’s offered a job in proctology, the “Straight Up” songbird shoots back, “Please, no more a*sholes.”

Hmm; a not-so-velied dig at her well-paid former Idol cohorts?

Well played, Ms. Abdul, well played.
