This week is off to a grim start for Paula Abdul.
The dancing shows don't want her, and now she won't be bringing the pretty to Ugly Betty after all.
"Paula will not be on our show," an ABC spokesman tells E! News.
Abdul was slated to appear on the America Ferrera comedy as a temp at Mode who buddies up with Becki Newton's Amanda. The episode was supposed to begin shooting this week.
ABC did tease, however, that 3rd Rock from the Sun funnylady Kristen Johnston would be guest-starring on the show. No word if she'll be filling the shoes of Amanda's new friend or not.
Could this mean a return-to-Idol announcement may be imminent?
