Drop Dead Diva apparently loves finding guest stars on popular reality TV competitions. The show, which recently hiredÂ The Bachelor‘sÂ Jake Pavelka for a guest spot, is also bringing in formerÂ American Idol judge,Â Paula Abdul for an appearance. This actually won’t be the first time Paula Abdul has appeared on the show, but there is a new twist for her character coming up. Keep reading for more details on Paula Abdul’s acting gig…
Paula Abdul has been notably absent from the small screen for much of this year (after leaving her spot on theÂ American Idol judging panel last season), but fans of the reality star can soon see her in action on an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Diva. Paula Abdul will appear on the season finale playing a wacky wedding planner. The episode will air on August 29th, one week after the episode featuring The Bachelor star, Jake Pavelka.
The guest appearance will actually be Paula Abdul’s second acting gig on the show. She appeared on the season premiere earlier this year.Â â€œI am very excited to guest star onÂ Drop Dead Diva,â€ Paula Abdul said at the time of her first appearance. â€œAll of the people are extremely talented and itâ€™s a charming, wonderfully written new show.â€
Previously, Paula Abdul was featured as a version of herself in dream sequences, but during the upcoming season finale, she’ll be assuming another role altogether. Drop Dead Diva creator, Josh Berman, says that in the past, Paula AbdulÂ ”guest-starred as â€˜Your Honor Judge Paula Abdul,â€™Â but for the finale, we have a new twist for her character. Sheâ€™s playing a wedding planner who walks a major character down the aisle â€” whispering Paula-esque words of wisdom into the brideâ€™s ear as they approach the altar.â€
Tune into the two-hour season finale ofÂ Drop Dead Diva on August 29th to see Paula Abdul in action.
