Conan O’Brien joked during his Late Night monologue on Wednesday night, “That ‘American Idol’ scandal still going on. Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Corey Clark now says he can prove he had sex with Paula Abdul by identifying a distinguishing characteristic on Abdul’s body. Yeah, apparently it’s a birthmark that like Abdul, was much bigger in the ’80s.”
Paula Abdul Lands Tony Nomination
May 12, 2005 – Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Wednesday night, “Well, the Tony nominations were announced. And nominated for best score — Paula Abdul. Hey, how about that? … And that little weasel ‘Idol’ loser, Corey Clark — little weasel this guy is. What a creepy guy this guy is. He says the whole sex scandal is good for ‘American Idol’ because their website is getting a record number of hits. Which is probably about the only time you ever heard the words ‘Corey Clark’ and ‘hits’ in the same sentence.”
Conan O’Brien’s bit just after his Late Night monologue on Tuesday night went like this: “Last week, one of the big names in the news, I just mentioned him over there, a young man named Corey Clark claims he had a sexual relationship with Paula Abdul while he was a contestant on ‘American Idol’. Well, ‘Primetime Live’ had the first interview with Corey. Since then, Corey Clark’s been everywhere. He showed up on ABC, FOX, CNBC and ‘The Howard Stern Show’, just to name a couple. Everybody’s talking about Corey, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Corey Clark’s prospects for the future do not look good. How do I know? Because I looked into it. Historically, the fame of men named Corey is tragically short-lived. Take a look at this graph right here, you’ll see. You can see actor Corey Feldman was famous for a whopping 109 days. That’s pretty impressive for a Corey. Then there’s Corey Hart, he sang ‘Sunglasses at Night’ back in 1983. He was a celebrity for a little over a month. Then we get to ‘American Idol’ Corey Clark. He’s been famous for six days. I’m just gonna project that he’s got two days left for a total of eight days. Finally, there’s actor Corey Haim, who is in the red. He actually had to give back the 11 days he was famous. As you can see, it’s not good. It’s not good at all.”
According to the Drudge Report, season two ‘American Idol’ finalist Corey Clark says he can prove his sex claims with Judge Paula Abdul — by identifying a “distinguishing characteristic” on Abdul’s body. “He says it’s a ‘distinguishing characteristic’ few have seen, only those who have been intimate with her,” a source at FOX revealed.

After that, Clark said he’s gonna spend the next several years repairing refrigerators.”

Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Friday night, “There are so many scandals now they’re all starting to run together. Last night I fell asleep watching the news and I had a nightmare where I dreamed a Georgia bride ran away to the Neverland Ranch so she could secretly meet Paula Abdul and have a three way with Pat O’Brien. … President Bush said today that he will appoint nine new federal judges and possibly one new ‘American Idol’ judge. … Have you heard the latest? Another scandal at ‘American Idol’. Apparently Simon was caught having an affair with himself. … If you’ve been following that ‘American Idol’ scandal, you know that Corey Clark, that little sleazeball, said Paula Abdul who was 18 years his senior, gave him money, bought him clothes, and had sex with him. To which Cher said, ‘Yeah so?'”
