After an unexplained cancellation of a visit this fall, former “American Idol” judge and singer Paula Abdul was on HSN Saturday to celebrate the first anniversary of her jewelry line, Forever Your Girl.
And she told a juicy tidbit about an exec at Variety, the sister publication of the trade magazine where we used to work.
Abdul was showing off a tricolor knot ring and matching bracelet that have pave stones. Abdul said that she recently attended an event honoring famed director Steven Spielberg, and she wore both those tricolor pieces. Abdul was sitting “next to the woman who runs Variety,” and the woman started raving about the jewelry, according to the singer.
Abdul took the ring and bracelet off and gave them to the unnamed Variety honcho. “She was just so happy,” Abdul said.
“We haven’t seen Paula since July,” HSN host Marlo Smith told viewers. She failed to mention that Abdul had been on HSN’s program schedule in October, but that appearance was canceled without explanation.
Abdul’s “Reach for the Stars” pave bracelet and ring, which she wore during “American Idol” telecasts, were both on clearance for $10 each.
Abdul says she gets stopped in the street when she wears that jewelry. “Everyone says, ‘That’s the ‘American Idol’ bracelet,'” Abdul said.
The singer also said she wore several of her various bracelets stacked at the recent American Music Awards.
We were eyeing Abdul’s nail polish, which was gold with sparkles. It was a little over the top, which Abdul later admitted on-air.
“Forgive my nail polish, I think it’s a little much,” Abdul told viewers, adding later on, “My nails are ridiculous.”
Girlfriend, we love you for being honest.
