Former "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul has an idea for a replacement for Simon Cowell, who left "Idol" to concentrate on his new show, "The X Factor."
"I keep saying his mom, Julie, should be a judge because Simon came from her," Abdul laughed with "Extra" at the opening of the new L.A. salon Syndicate.
There is one Simon rumor she insists is true. "It's the inevitable. Simon is going to be knighted. And he will make everyone call him 'Sir.'"
Watch our interview with the lovely Abdul as she gives us a tour of the new salon!
