Paula Abdul Off American Idol

"With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return," Paula Abdul wrote late last night via Twitter. Can she really be said to have decided not to return, though, if she has not been offered a contract renewal, as her manager previously claimed? The core of the dispute seems to be that she insists on being paid more money, while the producers are ambivalent (at best) about her continuing on American Idol at all.

She's like the Daffy Duck of that show. By turns: over-emotional, angrily jealous, greedy, scheming, and attention grabbing. And it's clear from the press releases and tweets from her camp in recent months that she's trying desperately to prevent the curtains from coming down on her.
