Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger Won’t Be Returning To X Factor!
They certainly know how to clean house over at the hit show X Factor! While rumors have circulated for months that host Steve Jones and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger would be getting the boot, I’m not sure that anyone saw former American Idol host Paula Abdul being handed her walking papers too!
“At this point, the only ones staying are Simon and L.A. Reid,” an insider tells E! News. “Simon wants to take the show in a different direction.”
Jones confirmed on twitter that he wouldn’t be coming back. A source close to Scherzinger said that she “quit” because she didn’t expect the show to be such a time committment and wants to focus more on her music, and Abdul reportedly found out that she would not be returning yesterday.
I could give two craps about Nicole Scherzinger (personally I think she needs to disappear for a minute.) but I am going to miss Paula Abdul, that chick can’t catch a break for nothing! Oh well..
The next question is, how long will it take them to announce that Kelly Rowland, who quit “X Factor UK” a couple of months ago and has been long rumored to be joining the stateside version, is one of the new hosts? Rumor has it that Mariah Carey may be joining the judging panel as well.
