WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON TALENT JUDGE DAVID HASSELHOFF?
One of the most fascinating people I've ever met. He's done it all [career-wise], but he still has this unbelievable obsession about discovering new people. He wears his heart on his sleeve. I adore him.
THERE ARE RUMORS PAULA ABDUL WILL DO DANCING WITH THE STARS NEXT SEASON.
She wants to. But I know her priority is Idol, and I don't think she can do both. It would be fun to watch.
DID YOU REALLY GIVE RYAN SEACREST AND RANDY JACKSON SWORDS FOR THEIR BIRTHDAYS?
Absolute rubbish. This is standard with these two—they will make up anything.
