Fans of Paula Abdul are concerned about the “American Idol” judge after her appearance on “Living It Up With Ali and Jack” this week.
“She was out of it,” says one source. “She was slit-eyed and slurring.” The insider says that Abdul actually seemed to nod off during the interview, though the source believes that the worst moments were edited out. The source also doesn’t think that Abdul was drunk or drugged. Says another source: “Paula’s said to have had the flu lately — she [reportedly] recently split with some guy — but I’m surprised they would let her go on the air like that.”
“She wasn’t feeling well,” says Abdul’s spokeswoman, “I didn’t see it, but she didn’t fall asleep. She just wasn’t feeling her best.”
“The interview went well,” insists a spokeswoman for “Living It Up.” When asked if some of Abdul’s more embarrassing moments were edited out, she said, “I can’t comment on that.”
