Paula Abdul Blames ‘American Idol’ For Stalker’s Suicide

December 9th, 2008 // 6 Comments

During an interview with Barbara Walters on the longtime journalist’s Sirus XM radio show, Paula Abdul claims that it was American Idol producers who pushed to have Paula Goodspeed on the show.

Abdul said that she immediately recognized Paula as her stalker, who had been writing “disturbing letters for 17 years, almost 18 years.” The Idol judge protested vehemently against allowing the potential contestant against whom Abdul had multiple restraining orders, to audition for the show. However, the “entertainment value” proved to be too good for producers to pass up.

After her unsuccessful audition, Goodspeed began sending Abdul letters that threatened bodily harm and included nude pictures of herself. It was when Goodspeed followed Abdul home after Idol auditions that she was able to ascertain Abdul’s home address, where she ultimately took her own life.

    Rumor has it that this is her last season so I guess that she has nothin’ to lose.

    Horrifying. What we do for ratings.

  3. Oh, Lord.

    I love SL but seriously, this story is so twisted and 70% of it isn’t even true. I mean, really.

    Good for you Paula for telling the truth.

    Let the sexist pigs hear the truth about them.

    The guys are talentless whores using the show and their undeserved fame to bed women who are looking for jobs.

    Stick it to them, Paula.
