ABC has offered the former American Idol judge a $1 million development deal with the caveat that she also has to appear on Dancing with the Stars, TMZ reported Tuesday.
Abdul reportedly has to decide on the deal quickly since it is contingent on her participating in the upcoming tenth season, which premieres March 22. An ABC representative declined comment when contacted by TMZ, noting that they do not comment on prospective cast members.
"It is for Paula to work out," he said at the time. "At the moment, the world is her oyster. Everyone wants her. At our show, we are great fans of Paula."
The reported deal between Abdul and ABC also wouldn't prevent her from potentially joining Simon Cowell as a judge on The X Factorwhen it launches stateside on Fox in Fall 2011, according to TMZ.
