Man, I thought Paula was a friendly drunk!

http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/64316.htm

I did not watch Paula Abdul on Jay Leno, because even I have some standards, but the New York Post (link above) says she bagged all over Ryan Seacrest, and if it's true she kind of sucks. I mean, Ryan isn't sacred to me or anything, but he's harmless and not there to defend himself. Of course I thought she was harmless, too, so shows what I know.

Here's the text of the article:

April 12, 2006 -- PAULA Abdul says Ryan Seacrest is steamed over being snubbed on the cover of the most recent Rolling Stone magazine.

The cover features Abdul and fellow "American Idol" judges Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell lying in a bed with one of Abdul's dogs - and a tiny photo of Seacrest on the front and back cover of a book held by Jackson.

Abdul, guesting on Monday's "Tonight Show," says Seacrest was angry at the slight - and she also used the occasion to take a swipe at the "Idol" host's love life.

Abdul made her comments after "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno held up the Rolling Stone cover for his audience to see.

"Now Ryan, he's not on there," Leno said.

"Well, he's down there," said Abdul, pointing to the tiny photos of Seacrest. "I guess that didn't go over very well."

"Oh, was he mad about it?" Leno said.

"I heard plenty mad," Abdul responded.

Abdul told Leno that the photo was taken with only her - and Jackson and Cowell (and the Seacrest "book") were added in later.

"You know, the brilliance of this is none of us were there," Abdul said.

Leno also asked Abdul about the rumored romance between Seacrest and "Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher, who were photographed smooching.

"He only kisses the mirror," Abdul said of Seacrest. "And, honestly, do you think Teri Hatcher is that desperate of a housewife?"

"There is no validity to what Paula said about Ryan on 'The Tonight Show,' " said a Seacrest spokeswoman.

"Ryan hasn't spoken to Paula about either Rolling Stone, or his personal life."

Ryan Seacrest IS a tad bit on the whiney side. I have an issue with people who can dish it, but not take it. He bags all over the judges all the time. (Not Paula, but the other two). They do it back to him, and he gets pissy! Grow a set, Seacrest! *snort*

Well, I'm not a big AI fan, but I do keep up and I haven't seen him talking trash about her. I'm sorry, but it's kinda skanky to talk about your co-star in that manner on national television.

Yes. "Grow a set" will always make me laugh, and is particularly funny in this case since we all know Ryan was engineered in a TV/Radio Host factory and contains no organic materials, but you're right. I've never heard him be snide to her, either on or off the show, and it was shitty of her to "put him on shout" as the kids say.

There's teasing a colleague and then there's telling the world that he threw a hissy over some embarrassing ego crap, and the latter is an ass move.

Of course, it may be that Paula is dumb and just wanted to play "laugh at people" with Leno, not understanding how this specific story might make Ryan look. I could believe that easily.
