Paula Abdul won't appear in the new Fox TV talent contest "So You Think You Can Dance" because of scheduling conflict
What do you think, can Paula Abdul dance? Well maybe in a real life she can, but not in the new Fox TV talent contests "So You Think You Can Dance." The star publicist Ken Sunshine confirms it's her scheduling conflicts that keep her from appearing in the show.
Despite her planned to appear as a guest choreographer in several episodes of "So You Think You Can Dance," Paula is too busy promoting an "American Idol" DVD and working on the show's new season. "We had not anticipated the time commitment required to successfully produce and appear in the show. It became apparent that her prior commitments ... made it impossible to be part of this new show," Ken explained.
Fox Broadcasting and the show's producers, on the other hand, "respect Paula's decision to step away," saying "We wish her all the best and look forward to working with her soon."
