Simon Cowell Fires Paula Abdul - Again


For the second time in as many shows, Simon Cowell has fired Paula Abdul. Oh sure, he has some deniability for what happened on American Idol, but if he had gone to the producers and said give her what she wants, which was way way way way way less than Simon was making, they would have given it to her. He did not. She was gone and Idol went on its downward spiral. Yesterday at X Factor, Paula was told she would not be coming back for Season 2. Nicole Scherzinger was fired too, although she is allowed to say she is leaving to focus on her music career. I want you to think about that for a second. Why would Nicole willingly give up millions of dollars a year to sit in a chair where she still has time to work on her music for the chance to earn probably way less than millions and have to work full-time and more to do it. Yeah. Steve Jones is gone too. The only people not gone are Simon Cowell (because the low ratings are never his fault) and LA Reid because you really do not want to make LA Reid mad. I guess this is Olivia Munn's second chance to get that hosting job her manager screwed her out of last year.

everybody loves paula, i dont like this move but mariah carey might be joining the show and maybe that was a part of the deal, get rid of the two other females and let her be queeeen!!

Getting rid of Nicole and Steve was a good move. I'm pissed about Paula being gone...she was one of the only reasons I gave the show a chance. They lost me with that move.

I'm actually upset about Paula leaving. Bad move.

Jennifer H. said...

No Paula? Well, I won't be watching then

Seachica said...

They need to fire the producers for putting on air a boring idol retread. But yeah, guess Simon won't let that happen

Paul wasn't responsible for the low ratings. Why is Paula always blamed. I didn't like Nicole Z and Simon was kinda duddy this season. KEEP PAULA!!! Mariah...I won't be watching. I stopped watching Idol cause of JLo and Steve Tyler.

It's either Randy, Paul and Simon together...or no one for me.

Wonder if he'll try Cheryl Cole again?

I don't understand why anyone watches this and the "insert country name" Got Talent (Kidz Got Singing, heehee). At least with the singing and dancing shows, you know what you're getting. This just looks like a variety show of unimaginable horror. I don't want to see jugglers. Or people on unicylces with giant silver rings. No one wants to see that. Ever.

Who cares? I bet this show has one more season.

Maybe Simon got all twitchy and bitchy because he had to give up the cigs. I hear nicotine withdrawals are a drag, pardon the pun.

RocketQueen said...

Good lord. Maybe it's just because PEOPLE ARE SICK OF TALENT SHOWS, Simon.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I haven't watched it. I don't have the level of disdain for Olivia Munn as others do BUT she is in no way qualified to judge/host on this show.

Jason B E said...

Olivia wouldn't do it now. Try again in 2-3 years, though.

Olivia Munn is an insufferable asshole.
