Bravo announced a new reality series following the currently dogged by speculation Paula Abdul. The project, "Hey Paula!" (working title) will give a candid look at the American Idol judge, pop star, choreographer and multi-platinum artist, as she manuevers her fame.
The series is produced by Scott Sternberg Productions for Bravo and will debut later this year. The announcement was made by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo.
"Bravo has been successful with profiling dynamic, creative personalities that quicken the pulse of pop culture," said Zalaznick. "Paula's career epitomizes the frenzy of Hollywood as it relates to television, music, dance and style. Viewers will get an intimate glimpse at the real woman behind the headlines."
"It's a hectic time in my life right now with several projects in television, film and fashion," said Abdul. "I'm excited to open the doors to Bravo and have all my fans see the other sides to me, beyond what they see on American Idol."
The show will reveal the ups and downs of Abdul, not just as a celebrity, but as a working woman too.
Cameras follow Abdul as she starts a new season of the hit series "American Idol," executive produces Bratz: The Movie, develops her own perfume and cosmetics, expands her originally-designed jewelry line, markets her clothing line and fits personal appearances into a demanding and "exhaustive" rife with "technical issues" schedule.
