So it's going to be the Corey Clark-Sour Grapes hour, but if his allegations can be proved, is this the Twenty/One scandal of our generation?

Honestly, I'd say no, only because the era and ethics are different. OTOH, we are talking about Standards & Practices here, which was partially put into place because of the quiz show scandals of the 50's and if that puts at least Abdul's AI career in jeopardy.

What are his allegations exactly? She really has 1 of 3 votes to get people through to the "Live" stage of the competition and then has no influence whatsoever on the outcome.

From Uncle Jesse to Kevin Federline Light, that's a rough fall right there.

See, that's where i'm lost. He didn't win, so any "influence" that she was providing didn't work anyways.

Plus, he is old enough to know whether or not he wants to do anything with Paula Abdul. If he went along with it to win, then he's JUST AS GUILTY.

Right?

I"m not sticking up for Paula. She's obviously a cracked out mess, but come on. So she wanted to diddle the young guy.

If it were Simon, who ACTUALLY has pull, then that would be different, in some manner.

But everyone knows Randy and Paula are f**king jokes.

I think the expose will have accomplished exactly what it was intended to. Tear down the AI franchise? No. Piggy-back off AI's success to pop a big sweeps rating for ABC? Yes.

"How could she stop loving me. Oh, that's right, i'm a f'n dweeb." VerBATEM of what loser boy said.

Verbatim: Click Here (m-w.com) means literally "word for word, exactly what he said." Verbatim doesn't mean how you interpret his words. You might be paraphrasing.

He didn't "lose," he was kicked off the show for lying on his application or something...he was never "voted off" so it's *possible* he could have won (though highly unlikely, I'd hope). Her tip to sing a Journey song was inspiring...Randy ate it up, and that was a lovely trip down memory lane watching Randy play onstage with Journey.

I watched the Primetime Special...and if it wasn't true, how did he get a hold of a prescription cough medicine in her name, and why in the hell would she be calling him like mad telling him not to talk to the media.

That, and seeing how she acted anytime Anwar or Constantine would sing, it doesn't surprise me.

He makes a good point as well, I don't necessarily find Paula Abdul hot, but if she came on to me...I'd hit it.

Now, how intimate the relationship actually got, I dunno. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Sorry to cause trouble. I really did mean to talk about how surprised I was to hear the show was "back on" albeit in another country.
