Paula Abdul is reacting to being featured on last night’s ‘Nightline’, where the ‘American Idol’ judge denied she’s addicted to alcohol and/or prescription drugs. “I’ve never been addicted to any prescription drugs. I’ve never been drunk. I’ve worked my whole life,” Abdul said, adding that she has never taken addictive painkillers despite undergoing 15 surgeries since her 1992 neck injury. “I will not take those drugs. And you can check my medical records. There is nothing like that. I was never on Oxycontin or Vicodin or anything like that. I was on nerve medicine and anti-inflammatories.”

Despite airing those quotes last night, Abdul doesn’t seem pleased with how Cynthia McFadden portrayed her, writing on her Twitter account (@PaulaAbdul) earlier today:
Disappointed that Cynthia tried SO HARD on Nightline to make it look like I’m on drugs & alcohol. U know it’s not true. THX 4 yr support!
