Paula Abdul's comic timing is good. Her ironic timing is even better. If not completely unintentional.

Just hours before Team Paula's collective dreams of a last-minute deal with American Idol producers was incinerated by reality judge opportunist Ellen DeGeneres, VH1 released this amusing, reunion-teasing promo for its Divas 2009 special.

Starring none other than Miss Abdul consulting an L.A. employment agency for work (two stipulations: "Something glamorous," and "No more assholes"), she's nearly pipped to the diva post by a certain omnipresent Idol and E! News host.

Perhaps you've heard of the ever game Ryan Seh-crest?

Right sentiment. Wrong spiky-coiffed, blonde-highlighted, job-undermining TV host.

Abdul out.


Before Ellen takes over, a slew of stars will be warming her judging seat. Check out who in our American Idol 2010: Guest Judges Galore gallery.
