Rumors have been flying about her possible departure from the hit show American Idol, and tonight Paula Abdul confirmed that she will not be joining the cast when the begin shooting at rehearsals on Thursday.  There was no official reason given for Abdul leaving, but Abdul’s contract ended after last season and her agent recently said that there was no contract on the table.  No word on what Paula’s next project will be, but we at TSC think she should take up skiing as a hobby, since she won’t be working this winter.  After all, she is a dancer, singer, and former Laker girl- why not add skier to the list?
