FBLA Exclusive: Samantha Harris Would Welcome Paula Abdul

sharouc.jpgpaulpic.jpgTV Guide talks with Dancing With The Stars judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba about whether Paula Abdul should be a contestant on the upcoming season — as if FOX would let her.

DWTS hostess Samantha Harris tells FBLA exclusively: “I’ve known Paula for years and would be ecstatic if she was on our show. She sure would up the game for the competitors but also would stir up controversy since she’s known for her choreography! A little drama is always fun to mix things up!”
