Paula Abdul will not be appearing on the new version of Star Search, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The former American Idol judge was in negotiations to host and do some judging on the remake of the 1980s hit that starred Ed McMahon.
But negotiations with ABC broke down Wednesday night a network source told RadarOnline.com.
“A deadline was given and no agreement was reached,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“And she was offered a lot of money.”
The network wants to air the show this season.
As of right now the deal is dead. It is theoretically possible it could be brought back to life but the source said that’s highly unlikely.
“No, it looks like we hit the end of the road with Paula,” said the source.
