(Newser) – Paula Abdul says her reunion with Simon Cowell on his new talent show is "still in the honeymoon phase." The 48-year-old Abdul told reporters in Singapore today that Fox's The X Factor will probably be "ginormous" as the two former American Idol judges reunite to assess would-be singing stars. Abdul said she and Simon have "a wonderful, exquisite, challenging and frightening relationship." The X Factor taped its first judging session earlier this month and will debut this fall.
