Paula Abdul Thinks Ellen DeGeneres is Just Gr8

So how does Paula Abdul feel about Ellen DeGeneres taking over her judging post on American Idol?

Just swell, thanks very much for asking!

The “Straight Up” singer, who bailed from her Idol gig in August following a high-profile salary dispute, took to her Twitter account yesterday to let everybody know just how awesome her replacement will be.

“I think Ellen will b a gr8 judge on Idol,” Abdul wrote, according to Gabby Babble. “She is wildly funny, talented and I wish her the best of luck!”

Whew; that’s a relief! Don’t want a heaping-helping of Pauka Abdul-style crazy being unleashed on anyone!

Let us know in the comments section: Do you think Paula genuinely wishes Ellen well, or is she just being her usual diplomatic self?
