Paula Abdul: 'People Misunderstand Me Completely'

The pressure is on as the remaining contestants battle it out for a spot in “Idol’s” coveted Top 10. Now, only “Extra” is revealing who could be singing the blues when the music stops.

Our Terri Seymour spent time dishing with Paula Abdul as the perky judge confessed, “I love the show because it’s just so unpredictable.”

Paula also told Terri that she expects more Simon and Ryan firework in the future: “Every single night it’s the joke. It’s a contest to see who can throw each other off.”

Paula admitted that she prefers to stay out of the line of fire when it comes to dealing with the dueling egos. “Good thing I’m small, and I somehow fit in the middle,” she teased. “If I gain anymore weight I’ll be in big trouble.”

Paula also set the record straight about her reported trouble in the romance department.

“People perceive and misunderstand me completely,” Abdul insisted. “Just because I’m famous doesn’t make me exempt from love. I’m just uber-busy…the schedule provides a lot of area to do other things.”

One thing currently keeping Paula busy is her budding fashion empire. Abdul’s fans have made her a hit on QVC, burning up the phone lines for a chance to purchase a hip T-shirt or a jazzy piece of jewelry from her fashion line.
