Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul

In an interview on Barbara Walters’ Sirius XM radio show, Paula Abdul accused Fox and “American Idol” producers of ignoring her pleas not to allow Paula Goodspeed to audition for fear of her previous obsessive behavior. “I said this girl is a stalker of mine and please do not let her in,” Abdul told Walters Monday, adding that the producers thought it would be a hoot to bring her on anyway “for entertainment value.
“It’s fun for them to cause me stress,” Abdul said. “This was something that would make good television.”
At the behest of producers, Goodspeed appeared on the show more than once, Abdul said. The 46-year-old former Laker Girl said Goodspeed had written her “disturbing letters” for nearly 18 years and that she’s had a restraining order against the woman at times. The entertainer also accused Fox of making her home address public, although she added that Goodspeed found the place on her own after an audition: “She followed me home with her mom.” When Walters asked why Abdul remains on a show that put her in peril, Abdul replied: “I’m under contract.”


Toni Braxton

Toni Braxton

Toni Braxton has opened up to Us Weekly magazine about her reason for skipping last month’s season finale of “Dancing With the Stars.” As previously reported, the 41-year-old entertainer underwent surgery the week before to remove a benign tumor from her breast. She was aware of the tumor before she appeared on the ABC show, but didn’t schedule the surgery until after she was voted off on Oct. 20. “Getting the boot on the show was actually a blessing in disguise for me,” she tells Us Weekly in its upcoming Friday issue. “My grandmother on my dad’s side died of breast cancer, and I have aunts on both sides that have breast cancer.” Though Braxton is still recovering, she is scheduled to appear on the “Dancing With the Stars” tour, which begins Dec. 17 in San Diego.


Michael Jackson

A number of items belonging to Michael Jackson, including his trademark glove and the gates to his Neverland Ranch, will be auctioned next year with partial proceeds to benefit the Recording Academy charity MusicCares. The items, along with 2000 more of Jackson’s personal possessions, will go on display by Julien’s Auctions before the five-day auction begins on April 21, 2009, reports the Associated Press. Bids will be accepted in person and online. The sale is to be broadcast live on Auction Network. Jackson plans to donate a portion of the sales to MusiCares, a charitable organization founded by the Recording Academy to help musicians in need. The remaining profits will likely go toward paying down his considerable debt.
He went into default on his sprawling Neverland property earlier this year, before an investment company bought the loan. Last month, Jackson’s lawyers reached a settlement in a $7 million breach-of-contract case brought by a Bahraini sheik.


Jesse Jackson Jr.

Jesse Jackson Jr.

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to emphatically deny involvement in Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s alleged “pay-to-play” scheme to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant senate seat. A lawyer for Jackson acknowledged earlier Wednesday that the Illinois Democrat is the so-called Senate Candidate 5 in the federal complaint against Blagojevich. Though the affidavit says Blagojevich named Senate Candidate 5 as an individual potentially willing to raise money for him in exchange for Obama’s seat, Jackson said he was assured by federal prosecutors Tuesday that he is not a target of the investigation. “I want to make this fact plain. I reject and denounce pay-to-play politics and have no involvement whatsoever in any wrongdoing,” Jackson said at the press conference in Washington, D.C., calling on the governor to resign. “I did not initiate or authorize anyone at anytime to promise anything to Governor Blagojevich on my behalf.” Jackson’s attorney, James D. Montgomery Sr., said Wednesday that Jackson learned he was mentioned in the complaint against Blagojevich the night before the governor’s arrest on Tuesday.
