‘American Idol’ Producer Denies Trying To Kill Paula Abdul Via Audition

December 16th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Ken Warwick, the executive producer of cultural touchstone American
Idol,
is denying that he purposely put Paula Abdul in danger by
allowing her stalker to audition in front of her in January of 2006.

The
woman in question, Paula Goodspeed, had been harassing Paula for “17
years” and committed suicide via drug overdose in front of Paula’s
house last month.

Paula told Barbara Walters recently that she felt like she had been put in the line of fire of a potentially dangerous person.

“I
would not put a dangerous person or a person I thought was even
remotely dangerous in front of the judges for the simple reason that
you wouldn’t [want to] contaminate the show by taking that risk. You
just wouldn’t do it,” Warwick said.

As for Abdul’s job following her complaints? Is it stable? There IS
a new female judge on the panel this season. Will she be taking over
the Xanax-influenced judging duties of Ms. Abdul?

“There’s never
been any discussion that we would want to get rid of Paula — even if
there were people in production that didn’t like her. [Her job is] not
in any jeopardy. America loves Paula. She’s an integral part of this
program, and as far as I’m concerned, I hope she’s there ’til the day
it comes off the air.”

He’s no fool. Paula Abdul’s eyes rolling into the back of her skull and slurring and applauding IS that show.

    this is pretty vengeful:

    “even if there were people in production that didn’t like her”
