Paula Abdul

Perhaps you've heard - Paula Abdul is saying she will not return to American Idol.

Honestly, I think this is the culmination of a master-plan by FOX to eliminate Paula following this debacle - where she accidentally read her critique of a performance that hadn't occurred yet; essentially revealing on live television that the show is (at least partly) fake.

The next season, FOX added a fourth judge (another female)- Kara Dioguardi. In retrospect, Kara was probably added to replace Paula. And whereas Kara gives constructive criticism, Paula's role on the show could easily be filled by a mannequin with a "You were great!" sign tied around it's neck.
