Report: Paula Abdul to compete on 'Dancing with the Stars' next edition
By Christopher Rocchio, 11/28/2008
Despite what would seem to be an obvious scheduling conflict with American Idol, Paula Abdul is reportedly ready to compete on Dancing with the Stars' upcoming spring edition.
"Paula is very excited to be on board [with Dancing with the Stars]," a source close to Abdul toldRadar magazine in a Wednesday report.
Abdul's rumored participation in Dancing with the Stars as a celebrity contestant is nothing new. However the fact that she'd be doing so in the midst of Idol's eighth season would seem unlikely given not only will both shows air on competing networks this spring, but they both air live -- and sometimes overlapping -- broadcasts on Tuesday evenings.
Although Abdul also already recently denied she's planning to leave Idol, Radar also reported Abdul is "uncertain" about her Idol future after obsessed fan Paula Goodspeed committed suicide in front of her home last month.
