(Newser) – Paula Abdul has bailed on American Idol, but if execs at ABC have their way she may be back to reality TV soon. "We would love to have her on Dancing With the Stars," the network's president tells People. “She’s a huge talent. There’s an empathy that balances out Idol, and we’d love to get a piece of that." Whether Abdul would be a fourth judge or dancer remains open.
