Paula Abdul is negotiating her new contract for "American Idol," which would be for the rest of the show’s run on TV, the Associated Press reports.
"I’ve been invited to stay the duration of the show, however long it lasts," Abdul told the AP. Her contract hasn’t been renewed since it expired after the show’s eighth season. She said Monday the invitation to come back is subject to agreement on the details of a new deal.
She said she’s optimistic that a deal can be negotiated.
