Paula Abdul arrived at JFK last night ready to talk about how overwhelming it is to leave American Idol and to say Simon Cowell misses her already. The news Paula's leaving the show saddened many of you, and even her fellow judges Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson have expressed their shock about her departure. Paula apparently wanted $20 million and, when the Idol execs wouldn't meet her demands, she turned them down via Twitter. While nobody can take Paula's place, Victoria Beckham's publicist confirmed Posh will guest judge for one episode. Many people are wondering whether this is all a big publicity stunt, but for now Paula's just sitting back and weighing all of her options.
