Paula Abdul, the singer, dancer, and former judge on “American Idol,” has revealed that she was once offered a spot on “The Real Housewives.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Abdul said that she was “humbled” to be asked to join the reality TV show, but she ultimately turned down the offer.
While attending the fifth annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala in Los Angeles, the singer admitted that she turned down the opportunity because she’s had her fill of reality television appearances.
“I like to be the one on the couch with the popcorn, watching with my dogs,” Abdul said. “I’ve had a long history in reality television, and I think I’m good where I’m at.”
Abdul is not the first celebrity to turn down a spot on “The Real Housewives.” Other stars who have declined the offer include Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Mariah Carey.
