Paula Abdul is making a rebound from her "American Idol" departure by nabbing a role on ABC sitcom "Ugly Betty". There have been a couple of confirmations from EW and E! Online that Paula indeed is in talks to have a guest star appearance later in the fourth season.
According to EW, the role that she will tackle will be a new temp at Mode. She will bond with the company's secretary, Amanda. Paula has not yet given her comment about this, but she said on Monday, August 10 that she has been making rounds. "I've got a busy week filled with network meetings. I'm looking forward to all the new projects up ahead," she wrote on her Twitter.
Should this stint is true, then Paula could be making a transition to ABC. The network's President Stephen McPherson previously said during TV Critics Association press tour that they would love to have Paula as judge of "Dancing with the Stars".
"Ugly Betty" will premiere its fourth season for two hours on October 9. There has been a change in the cast with "America's Next Top Model" cycle 3 alumna Yaya Dacosta taking over the role of Nico. The character which was previously filled by Jowharah Jones is the daughter of Vanessa Williams' Wilhelmina.
