In an interview with 'Extra,' Simon Cowell's erstwhile foil praised her own people skills. "I feel I would be really good at it," she confided. "I have the ability to connect with people on a level. I've proven to pierce the heartstrings, but also to be celebratory and bring out the best in people."

While Paula didn't get into the specifics of a format for such a show (aside from the aforementioned piercing of heartstrings) we have a few ideas of our own we'd like to propose to help ensure it a successful run, should it ever get green-lighted. Paula, feel free to use any or all of them.

-- Lots of uncomfortable friction between Paula and a British male co-host.
-- Frequent incoherent musings about guests' "beautiful spirits."
-- Overzealous clapping when guests enter and leave the set.
-- Instead of Paula herself, have Nigel Lythgoe host, accompanied by an empty chair marked "Paula Abdul."
-- A point system for rating guests. Low scoring guests will be kicked off the show.
-- The long-awaited reunion of Paula with her "Opposites Attract" video animated co-star MC Skat Kat.
-- Erratic on-set behavior, slurred speech, glassy-eyed gazing at nothing in particular.
-- A weekly battle of wits between Paula and author Salman Rushdie.
-- Weekly displays of erratic behavior in public places to generate interest in show.
