ABC Has It In For Paula Abdul

Fallen Idol was more like let’s ruin Paula Adbul’s career. Talk about tabloid television. And what was up with Corey Clark’s homies? Jesus, they were kind of a scary bunch. And why on earth was he wearing prison colored orange? While Corey did most likely spend time at Paula’s home, and she gave him some advice it all kind of reeked like extortion to me.

Clark’s parents told “Primetime” that they disapproved of their son’s relationship with Abdul while he was a contestant, and they spoke to the judge when she called their house looking for Clark.

On the program, Clark also alleges that Abdul gave him some of her prescription cough syrup to ease his throat problems and helped spruce up his image with clothes and a haircut in order to help in “polishing off that dust — off of the dirty diamond and helping me shine a little bit, you know what I mean? Like, ‘Yo, check him out now.’ “

Clark told “Primetime” that he is coming forward now in order to “set the record straight for myself. And, unfortunately, I need to set the record straight for her, too, because she was a part of it.” The singer denies his comments are part of a publicity stunt, but the press release from “Primetime” notes that a song on Clark’s upcoming debut album deals with the affair.

Let’s see what Paula has to say about all of this.
