Paula Abdul’s addiction is surely to blame for the entertainer’s entertaining diction problems over the years. From slurring during interviews, to incoherent praises for contestants on ‘American Idol,’ to strange utterings on her reality show, ‘Hey Paula.’
In the June issue of ‘Ladies’ Home Journal’ Abdul opens up about her time in rehab last November, revealing she received treatment for addiction to painkillers, muscle relaxers and nerve meds.
“I could have killed myself,” Abdul says. But thanks to treatment, Paula’s switched her meds for a mat, using yoga and spiritual therapies to help her heal.
This admission is quite the contrast to what Abdul told ‘Nightline’s’ Cynthia McFadden just a few short weeks ago, where she adamantly denied taking pain meds.
But medicated or not, I hope Paula Abdul will continue to be a shining, bright shtar who ishn’t afraid to expresh hershelf as the beautiful pershon she ish.
