'Idol' producer doesn't want Paula Abdul going 'Dancing with the Stars'

Paula Abdul's interest in participating in ABC's Dancing with the Stars may have hit a snafu, as American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe apparently isn't a fan of the idea.
"As far as I'm concerned, Paula is American Idol and our judge," said Lythgoe in In Touch Weekly's June 2 issue. "It's like asking [fellow judge Simon Cowell] to sing. Why would I want that? It chips away at you."
