Forget those Internet rumors that American Idol wants to replace Paula Abdul with now-sober rocker Courtney Love. "I did not call Courtney Love and am afraid someone may have misrepresented me," executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said in a statement. "Courtney Love is a very talented artist, but the judges for American Idol are Paula, Randy and Simon. We have no plans to add to or replace any of them."

And while Paula still calls Idol her day job, she has several other projects on tap: a new documentary about her life for Bravo, producing a live-action film based on the Bratz dolls and dating, as she tells Extra in an interview set to air Thursday. So, what does she look for in a man? "The opposite from Simon."
