VIDEO: Paula Abdul Impersonates Ellen DeGeneres

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Specials, Cable, Video,


Paula Abdul may have moved on from , but will she ever stop talking about?

On yesterday’s special, the former judge used her hosting position to reference her old job not once…but twice. In the clip above, the choreographer hit the stage while doing her best Ellen DeGeneres impersonation. (Although the dancing was admittedly funny, Abdul should have stopped right before making the Simon Cowell comment.)

After the jump, you can also see Paula do her best impersonation of someone who lip synchs and dances at the same time. (Note: If you’re pretending to sing, don’t tilt the microphone away from you.) If you make it to the “Opposites Attract” section, you’ll catch an additional nod to Cowell there.

Heidi Fleiss and Tom Sizemore

And you thought the tension between Jeff Conaway and his girlfriend was awkward to watch…

For Season 3 of Celebrity Rehab, Dr. Drew Pinsky and producers have upped the dramatic ante. Actor has just been included in the final lineup for the VH1 reality series. This means he will be seeking treatment at the same time as Heidi Fleiss.
