Paula Abdul Sued Over "Paula" Show



Paula Abdul is being sued by a production company, claiming her tried to screw them out of a show based on Paula's life.

Paula Abdul has been sued over "Paula" show. How come? The American Idol judge is being sued by a production company, accusing her of trying to screw them out of a show based on Paula's life.

In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pilgrim Films and Television (PFTV) claimed their parties have in 2004 met with Abdul and her producing partner David Russo to discuss a talk show featuring Abdul. TMZ reports that according to the suit, after some false starts, the talk show never came to fruition and both sides instead agreed on creating a reality show titled "Hey Paula," based on Abdul's life.

However, the project "fell apart" after Abdul demanded final editorial control over the final product. Further, PFTV claims Abdul allegedly came clean and told PFTV that "she had secretly taken PFTV's 'Hey Paula' project to Bravo." On January 12, Bravo announced "Hey Paula" will debut sometime this year on the network.

Thus, PFTV is "trying to get the show back on track" by selling it to Oxygen. The suit, additionally, also asks for compensatory and punitive damages, in addition to an injunction prohibiting anyone from airing "Hey Paula."
