Talk about your bad trips!

Long before they ever traded opinions on American Idol, Paula Abdul opened her L.A. home to Kara DioGuardi when the songwriter needed a place to stay. And so, DioGuardi took up residence at Casa Abdul for a while—minus the time she spent in the hospital, that is!

For the record, Abdul was out of town at the time and, her pal says, the brownies had been left over from a party and did not belong to the host.

Well, at least we know where all the rockin' X Factor afterparties are going to be this year.
