ABC News went backstage with Paula Abdul at ‘American Idol’, where she talked about being unfairly criticized. Abdul said the first season she “quit seven times”, how she’s “not the girl that’s in those tapes” from ‘Hey Paula’, calling it “plotting, scheming, editing” and “that was not accurate documentation of my life.” A preview of the full ‘Nightline’ feature aired this morning on ‘Good Morning America’. The report added that Paula and fellow ‘Idol’ judge Randy Jackson only learned of Kara Dioguardi joining the show as the fourth judge on her way to the first audition. Video at abcnews.go.com has since been removed.
