I recall watching them in the past on American Idol thinking hmmm I’ve seen that kind of tension before!
Oh my gosh I’m so glad this never happened. Just imagine if he and Paula would have hooked up in the past…two crazy people who work together should never have sex! If they would have Paula would definitely not be on X Factor today.
Yesterday Barbara Walters sat down with Simon Cowell for her Ten Most Fascinating People interview and we learned some very fascinating behind the scenes info about two of our favorite talent judges.
Mr Nasty, as he was called during his idol days says he had a chance to sleep with Paula but didn’t go through with bedding her because he was afraid of the aftermath.
“I mean, the truth was, on the first two seasons, we couldn’t travel on the same plane together. We really disliked each other that much,” Cowell told Walters, arguing that they clashed due to “sexual tension…on her part.”
Asked by Walters if Cowell thought Abdul, 49, wanted a relationship with the reality mogul, the acerbic Brit replied “a million percent.”
“I considered it, but then I thought, ‘I don’t think the after would be as good as the before.’ I’d let her stay for a few hours, but then it would have to be goodnight,” he joked.
