Former ‘American Idol’ Judge Paula Abdul Gets Teary Over Fan Call On HSN

December 14, 2009

“American Idol” alum Paula Abdul got choked up and teary Sunday night during her appearance on HSN to sell her “Forever Your Girl” jewelry line.

The petite singer’s fans were calling in to her in force, offering testimonials about her star-themed jewelry. But many of the women went on to laud Abdul for being such as inspiration to them.

We heard at least a half dozen women tell Abdul “I love you.” Who knew she had such rabid fans.

The caller that choked up Abdul was Melissa, who was buying the singer’s jewelry to save for her 2-year-old granddaughter. Melissa said she used to tune in to “American Idol” to see what jewelry Abdul was wearing from her HSN line.

“I won’t watch ‘Idol’ anymore without you,” Melissa said during her call. “Paula, you and eveything you do highlights our life. We can hear your voice and you put a smile on our face because you’re always so happy and wonderful.”

HSN host Callie Northagen said that the call choked her up, and she reached over to Abdul, who looked emotional as well. The camera then stayed on Northhagen, and there was a break for a promo.

When the show resumed, Abdul said, “During the break, I was in tears.” She had to fix up her eye makeup.

Here’s the video of Abdul and Melissa’s call.

‘Idol’ Paula Abdul Is Back On HSN, But What’s Up With Actress And Tabloid Star Tori Spelling?

December 13, 2009

Singer and “Amercian Idol” alum Paula Abdul is back on HSN this weekend after her visit in October was abruptly canceled, but what’s happening with Tori Spelling?

Spelling is apparently not listed for any appearances in December on the home shopping network, where her fashion jewelry collection is sold.

Both Abdul and Spelling were scheduled to appear on HSN the same weekend in mid-October, but their appearances were both scotched. HSN viewers who called customer service to find out what happened to the two stars weren’t given an explanation of the cancellations.

Now, two months later, Abdul is finally back on HSN this weekend with her “Forever Your Girl” jewelry line. But there’s no word on when Spelling will return.

At the time Spelling was absent, the tabloids were having a field day reporting that she was under 100 pounds and had been hospitalized.

The blonde, who is very gracious and down-to-earth on the air, has a reality show with her husband Dean McDermott on Oxygen, “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.”

Paula Abdul Is Selling The ‘Star’ Bracelet She Wore On ‘American Idol’ On HSN, Says She Gifted A ‘Variety’ Exec With Some Of Her Jewelry

December 12, 2009

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.
