Paul Abdul offered big bucks to -do what comes naturally. Dancing with the stars wants Abdul to be in their high profile production. The offer is said to be one million dollars.
Paula is pondering the productions offer and says, "I'll be happy to take your offer if I can pick my own dancing partner". The producers were not sure whom it was Paula had in mind, but agreed to her demands anyway.
Abduls pick for a partner was non other than her old Idol mate, Simon Cowell. It is rumored that Paula and Simon were secret lovers while doing the Idol show and only pretended to disagree with each other for the sake of ratings for the show.
"It was easy to see just how much they really cared for each other", said one Idol staffer. Some staff members even caught the two back stage in a tight embrace, but when caught, Paula said, "we were arguing about a contestants abilities and Simon was not hearing me, so I got close up to make him understand what I was saying".
Rumor has it that the real reason Paula left the show was that Simon was getting too serious and she just was not ready for that close of a relationship.
Will the romance start up again once they star together in "Dancing with the Stars"? Friends of the pair think, "they really make a cute couple, don't ya think"?
