'American Idol 2' finalist Carmen Rasmusen defends Paula Abdul

UPI News Service, 05/03/2005 

Speculation about a reported ABC News expose' of "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul has led a former contestant to come to her defense.

ABC News plans to air a much-discussed edition of its "Primetime" show Wednesday that reportedly includes allegations Abdul coached Corey Clark in his failed bid to win the competition, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

But Carmen Rasmusen, who was on the second season of "American Idol" along with Clark, said she doesn't believe the allegations.

"I just do not see Paula Abdul as a person who would try to sabotage 'American Idol,'" Rasmusen said. "I do not see Paula doing something that stupid that would hurt her image and hurt the show as well."

Neither Fox, ABC News nor Abdul would comment on the upcoming edition of "Primetime."
