Paula Abdul May Be Bringing the Crazy Back to ‘American Idol’

Rejoice, Idol-ites; your favorite wacky judge may be making a triumphant return to the show, after being cast out into the wilderness over contract negotiations.

According to an inside source, American Idol’s producers, fearful that viewers are losing interest in the show without Paula Abdul’s loose-cannon shenanigans, are trying to woo Abdul back onto the show, after her abrupt departure last August:

“They want Paula back. They’re not sure if she’d be the fifth judge, but they are talking to her. People tuned in to see Paula’s wacky antics and her chemistry with Simon. The show is just not as much fun to watch without her.”

A bit of advice: Backing a dump truck or two full of cash into her driveway might do the trick. Though, since Abdul has yet to find a new home for her talents, despite rumored impending deals with Dancing With the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, a revamped Star Search and Simon Cowell’s upcoming America’s Got Talent, she just might do it for a couple of peanut-butter sandwiches and a fistful of Quaaludes.
