Oh Lifetime, I’m a huge fan of Drop Dead Diva, but even I think you’re taking the return of Paula Abdul a little too seriously. Abdul’s due to reprise her role as a judge on the show’s season 2 premiere June 6. According to the promo (watch it below), “Only one question has been on America’s mind….Where is Paula?” Filming a dance number apparently. And, you know, appearing on American Idol and inking a deal to join a new CBS reality series, Got to Dance.
If you’ve yet to get into Drop Dead Diva, give it a chance. Lifetime is showing a marathon of season 1’s 13 episodes Sunday, May 30, starting at 10 a.m. ET. See why it made EW’s Must List last summer. Thanks to star Brooke Elliott, it’s a guilt-free pleasure. (Watch a promo.)
