McPherson Says ABC Wants Paula Abdul for ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Judge or contestant, it doesn’t matter: ABC has approached Paula Abdul about joining its “Dancing with the Stars,” ABC Entertainment Group head Steve McPherson told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Saturday, Variety reports.

McPherson said he was “a little stunned” when Abdul split from Fox’s “American Idol,” where she was one of the original judges. No formal offer for her to come over to ABC has yet been made, he said, but he “reached out” to her right after he heard the news.
