Gossip Radar- 8/6

August 6, 2009 at 1:46 pm (HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP)

So here’s what I got this week!


After reports of her leaving, Paula Abdul has said “No, thanks” to Idol execs and announced that she is leaving the show.

“With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to Idol,” Abdul wrote on her Twitter page. “I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon.”

Her rep and Abdul both said nothing more about why she was leaving. But it is hard not to see a situation over the salary- with Ryan Seacrest pocketing a cool $15 million a season for the show… and he is just the host. If I wasn’t being paid at least the same (being a judge), I would want to leave too. Idol will now have Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi, who just confirmed her return to the show, as judges, plus the occasional guest judge like Victoria Beckham. So what’s Paula going to do next??? Maybe judge So You Think You Can Dance???


My mom’s favorite and Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler was hurt last night while performing in South Dakota, according to the Rapid City Journal. He was rushed to Rapid City regional hospital after he fell off the stage during a performance Wednesday. Tyler reportedly fell off the stage as the band was performing “Love In an Elevator” and was then assisted backstage. Mike Sanborn, spokesman for the Buffalo Chip Campground, which hosted the outdoor concert, tells the Associated Press about the incident: “He was good-natured about it. He was in good spirits when he got in the helicopter. He was talking and joking with the physician.” This man takes a licking and keeps on ticking…
