Paula Abdul has revealed that she has been approached multiple times to join Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise, but has not yet decided whether or not to accept. She said that while the Beverly Hills series was a top contender, she has been asked to join other franchises as well. Though Abdul is friendly with many of the women on the show, she said she enjoys being a viewer and the drama involved in the show has made her hesitant to join.
Paula Abdul has been approached many times to join the “Real Housewives” franchise and though “RHOBH” is a top contender, she’s enjoying being a viewer for now.
Paula Abdul has admitted that she has been approached many times to appear on Bravo’s Real Housewives shows. The pop star, who is friends with many of the women on the show, revealed to Page Six that she hasn’t ruled out the possibility of joining the franchise in the future. When asked which show she was approached to appear on, Abdul remained tight-lipped, stating “RHOBH was a top contender but not the only one.” Despite being a fan of the show, she did express that it’s “a lot of drama” and she’s enjoying being a viewer for now.
As a former American Idol judge, Abdul is no stranger to reality TV drama, and she cited her “love-hate” relationship with fellow Idol alum Simon Cowell as an example. When asked about Kathy Hilton, who is set to make her appearance on the show soon, Abdul exclaimed, “I love her!” She went on to add that Hilton can come on the show whenever she’d like to.
However, Abdul did express her concerns about playing the role of peacemaker between the sparring sisters Hilton, Kyle Richards, and Kim Richards. The Richards’ rocky relationships have been documented on the show since its premiere in 2010. Abdul admitted that the sisters have their own dynamics, but they’re great in front of the camera and often forget that it’s even there.
It remains to be seen whether Abdul will ever join the Real Housewives franchise. Bravo has not responded to Page Six’s request for comment. Nevertheless, fans of the show will be keeping their eyes peeled for any updates on a potential Paula Abdul appearance.
