Former pop pin-up PAULA ABDUL is $1,000 (GBP555) better off, thanks to her TV show AMERICAN IDOL losing out on an Emmy Award.
The STRAIGHT UP singer was certain her hit TV contest would not be victorious in the best reality competition show category at Sunday's (18SEP05) ceremony, while her fellow judge SIMON COWELL begged to differ.
But once the award went to THE AMAZING RACE, Abdul was seen declaring backstage, "I just won $1,000."
Cowell didn't attend the ceremony, as he was travelling in Italy.
