Do all American Idol judges now negotiate their salaries in public?
Now, in Paula Abdul’s own bit of public negotiating in Variety:
Paula Abdul’s new manager says she may not be returning to “American Idol.”
According to a Los Angeles Times report, David Sonenberg says he doesn’t have a proposal for a new contract for Abdul. He says it doesn’t appear she’ll be back.
Who are they kidding? Whatever she can get from Idol, and I’m sure it’s a mighty sum, would be 100x her potential earnings from anything else. Doesn’t bluffing have to have at least a bit of reality to work?
