Paula Abdul's Next Move: Ugly Betty?

After Paula Abdul stepped down from American Idol last week, the entertainment industry started rumbling with thoughts about where she'd go next. At TCA, there wasn't a network that didn't want to claim her in some way, shape, or form. But I still wasn't expecting this: Abdul is reportedly in talks to guest-star on Ugly Betty for an episode in the upcoming season.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Abdul would play a temp at the Mode offices who becomes close with Becki Newton's Amanda.

Though Abdul is known as a singer, dancer, judge, and general reality TV personality, I wouldn't have put "actress" at the top of her resume. Then again, she has had a number of roles in various shows and movies and has lately been filming a couple of appearances on Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva. Maybe now that Idol's done, she wants to concentrate on her acting. What do you make of this story? A promising idea? Or just bizarre?

They have had some odd guest apperances so it doesn't strike me as anything bad. I think she does not have the money coming in that she was use to with AI so she will be doing a little of whatever she can.

I think it's a good sign that she is able to re-invent herself. As long as she's able to get some kind of work, I'm sure she'll be happy.
