She may be "Forever Your Girl" but do you really know Paula Abdul? This is the fly-on-the-wall series that goes behind the scenes in the life of the multifaceted Paula Abdul. Business woman, producer, choreographer, singer, and friend — the docu-series tracks Paula's ups and down, as she navigates her hectic professional and personal life. It's an insider's look into the "real" Paula straight up . . . . behind the tabloid headlines and the Hollywood gossip. Whether it's walking the red carpet, coping with the demands of a hit TV show or just hitting the supermarket, BRAVO uncovers the emotional and candid territory of life lived as a celebrity.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoThis Is My Life||In the first episode of "Hey Paula," a whirlwind 48 hours lies ahead for the star and "Team Abdul." As Abdul gets red-carpet ready for the Grammys, her Chihuahua "Chomps" chomps down on a loaned million dollar antique ring, much to the chagrin of the overprotective jewelry rep, and a call from the Bratz filmmakers creates additional drama. Immediately after the awards, Abdul changes out of her Valentino gown in the car, while making a mad dash to catch a red eye, and nearly misses the flight. But the day's not over and there's no time to rest for an exhausted Abdul. Landing in Philly, she heads over to QVC to see her jewelry designs, only to find they're not what she envisioned. If it's not up to par, Abdul's not putting her name behind it. With just a few hours before the live QVC show, she voices her concerns. Will the changes to Abdul's jewelry line be made in time? Just an average day in the life of Paula Abdul.||22:14||$1.99||View in iTunes|

Abdul and her publicist Jeff begin the trip at the annual dinner for the Young Menswear Association Fashion Scholarship Fund for Parson School of Design, where she's presented with the Fashion Icon Award by Tim Gunn - a true honor, since Abdul's graced the worst dressed list more than once. But by the time she gets to her hotel, it's 4am. With just two hours of sleep, Abdul attempts to grab some shuteye after a meeting with her perfume manufacturers, but ends up losing a battle with insomnia, and continues to miss night after night of sleep. A full week of meetings later, with no zzz's, combined with catching the flu, Abdul must get through a series of satellite interviews to promote "American Idol."

This show is addictive because it's just great to see how those celebreties live. It's funny because Paula is just funny and stupid because I do not get smarter by watching this. That's why I call it a guilty pleasure. Well if you have time to kill then do download Hey Paula!!!
And I should care...why?
If you are going to be on TV, shouldn't you have something worth saying? Watching an 80s pop star going through her daily routine is not entertaining. Remember how the original Real World on MTV used to deal with coming to understand people who were different from you (back before it turned into a drunken orgy of shallow, narcisstic misfits)? How about we have some reality shows that deal with the realities of learning to live together in a troubled, divided nation by understanding what unites us as human being and as citizens? Hey, Paula, sorry babe, but your self-absorption and attention-seeking just don't impress me. (Two stars, though, for being ballsy enough to not care that your flagging career interests no one but you.)
A Glimps of Paula
I downloaded the free show to check it out and it wasn't great but it wasn't bad. It's a reality show like most other reality shows. It's something to watch to pass the time. I must admit I did end up buying the season, which is very unlike me. It's nice being able to see the side of Paula and her life that is hidden by what the press wanted us to see. If your a fan of Paula's you will love it. If you enjoy seeing the realties of the celerity life you will love it. I like how the show revealed the truth of what really happened regarding Paula's bad press with drinking and being on drugs. Your able to see how Paula has come a long way and how hard she works to get where she is today. You can see how much she appreciates what she has and her fans. She is quirky, wild, and insane at times but you would be too if you worked 24 hours a day with little to no sleep!
