The ninth season of American Idol will premiere in January 2010 without Paula Abdul. American Idol isn’t the same without Paula Abdul, says Simon Cowell.

Simon, 49, tells Extra the show is now “different. It’s like comparing a carrot to a banana… They are different.”

On the ninth season, judges Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi return – along with celebrity guest judges, including Victoria Beckham, Shania Twain, Mary J. Blige and Katy Perry.

Simon says, he doesn’t want to “get in the middle” of Idol execs and Paula but definitely misses her being on the show. He also believes Paula will always be able to find work.

So what’s next for Paula?

“I definitely want to do a talk show because it would be different,” says Abdul, who has shot a guest role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva and will host VH1′s Divas Live Sept. 17. “It would be a lot of fun variety with a ton of unexpected stuff and tributes to everyday people getting their big chance.”

George Page is suing The Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise. George was featured on a previous episode, during which he is seen on a five-minute speed date with Sheree Whitfield in Atlanta.

In the clip, Page is seen telling a(n) extremely really corny joke to Sheree while equally corny music and sound effects play in the background.

TMZ reports in the lawsuit, which was filed last week in State Court in Chicago, Page claims he never gave permission to Bravo to show his face on TV — and was assured by producers that he would be edited out of the show.

Page is suing Bravo and NBC for at least $50,000 for infringing on his Right of Publicity and for causing him “emotional distress.”

Something tells me this lawsuit will not go very far. Reality shows in general, especially the really popular ones such as the Housewives’ series, are notorious for getting release forms signed from any and everyone, before they can show their faces on TV.

They even make sure they get release forms signed from random people in the background of scenes. We should be hearing news that this lawsuit has been dismissed any minute from now.

Lisa Wu Hartwell recently spoke out on her desire to fight for custody of her two eldest children, but what she failed to mention was the reason she lost custody in the first place.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has always maintained she is uncertain as to the reason she lost custody of her 2 eldest sons back in 2003 to ex-husband, Keith Sweat. Keith is pictured above on the right, he received primary custody of the two boys.

Access Atlanta was able to get their hands on the custody ruling, which explains the reason Lisa lost custody.

Judge Cynthia D. Wright wrote -

“There is evidence that Father has been violent towards Mother, but no evidence he has ever been violent with any of his children.” The judge felt the children at the time “lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother’s numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town … Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother’s maturity and judgment.”

“Father is capable of providing a stable, secure home environment for the boys where their care is not delegated to random third parties.”

To sum this up, the judge felt that Lisa’s ex husband, Keith Sweat, who had been abusive to Lisa during their marriage was a better fit to parent the children than Lisa. Interesting.

The eviction saga of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin has finally ended, as she moved out of her Arch Beach Heights home Wednesday, after receiving another eviction notice on Tuesday.

At first, Lynne refused to move, forcing the homeowner to file an eviction notice with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday. Several neighbors confirmed seeing Lynne and other family members move belongings from their home to a moving van. One of the neighbors also said this isn’t the first time the family have been evicted.

We initially reported that Lynne and her husband, Frank, never paid their security deposit, owing over $12,000 to the homeowner.

“Instead of paying the rent, security deposit and commission to their Realtor, Lynne got a facelift and her daughter got a nose job,” a source told the OCRegister.

The OCRegister also reports the Orange County housewives have reportedly earned $120,000 or more per seasons, however Lynne’s finances from the show are unknown.

Though all their belongings were moved, the garage door was left open, revealing storage and camera equipment owned by Evolution Media, the company filming the show for Bravo.

Megan Wants A Millionaire

It seems Megan Hauserman of VH1’s “Megan Wants a Millionaire” will be getting a second shot at a reality show since the abrupt cancellation of MWAM. One of the contestants- Ryan Jenkins– was the main suspect accused of murdering his wife before later committing suicide.

According to RadarOnline, VH1 has decided to give her another shot, though the new show will follow a different format moving away from the dating themed show. The new show will be unscripted even though Megan has requested a scripted show.

“VH1 is giving Megan her own reality show,” a source confirms. When the show was abruptly cancelled “they promised Megan her own show…that’s how they bought her silence.”

Megan, who seems to be a magnet for controversy was the Charm School contestant who got into a fight with Sharon Osbourne.

Jon Gosselin appears in his first television interview following the divorce announcement from estranged wife, Kate Gosselin. In the interview, he talks about years of abuse during their 10-year marriage.

“I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down,” he says on ABC’s Good Morning America. “She’ll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn’t going anywhere.”

He also says that Kate was always travelling while he had to stay with the kids — 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah).

“Well, excuse me, I’m taking care of the kids. She’s on book tours, she’s doing all these things. You know, she’s gone a week. You know, comes back. Packs up and leaves again,” Gosselin, 32, says. “I’m standing there like, ‘Oh, OK. Your mom’s gone again.’

Since the split, things have been stressful for the couple, he says. An incident occurred last month, during which the police was called into their home, because Kate unexpectedly showed up while he was spending time with the kids.

“I wouldn’t let her in the gate,” says Jon, who is still dating Hailey Glassman, the 22 year old daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s 2006 tummy tuck. “I said I’m spending time with my kids … and she’s going to have to leave and she tried to cry it up with the cops and it didn’t work and they told her she had to leave.”

You can watch the full Jon Gosselin interview on ABC’s Primetime: Family Secrets, Sept. 8 at 10 p.m. ET.
