Two years later, Paula Abdul's embarassing Hey Paula reality series is continuing to haunt the American Idol judge.

Jill Kohl filed a lawsuit yesterday in Los Angeles Superior court claiming she fell as she was walking down a driveway while Abdul's trainwreck Bravo reality series was filming, TMZ.com reported Tuesday.

Kohl -- who is reportedly suing Abdul, Bravo and NBC Universal among others -- alleges in the lawsuit that the driveway was in "dangerous and defective condition" and caused her fall.

She is seeking $25,000 in damages from the lawsuit, according to TMZ.

Hey Paula, a docu-reality series that gave viewers a closer look at Abdul's professional and personal life, aired for seven episodes on Bravo during the summer of 2007.

The series -- which originally seemed intended to demonstrate that Abdul wasn't as wacky as her American Idol behavior sometimes suggests -- ended up generating additional negative publicity for Abdul when it showed her engaging in embarassing diva-like behavior that she and her staff repeatedly attempted to blame on an overloaded schedule and lack of sleep.  

"[It]was hard for me to watch.  Disturbing," Abdul told USA Today last year about Hey Paula, which she claimed presented a false portrayal of her.  "They'd put a camera on me when I got wind that my dog was in a coma, and they'd make it (seem) like it was about hair and makeup."

Abdul told the newspaper she felt double-crossed by show's producers and flatly refused to do a second season of the show, which she didn't have editing approval on.
