Paula's New Look Has Everyone Talking
January 18, 2006

Season five of "American Idol" started off with a bang Tuesday night, but the morning after the show aired, everyone was talking about Paula Abdul's hot new look.

Was it her hair? New makeup? Sculpted arms? Or just some much deserved rest?

Even Mr. Negative Simon Cowell attempted to compliment Paula Monday night on Jay Leno. "For your age, you look good this year," he said.

For now, Paula's recipe for rejuvenation is under wraps -- she was a no show Tuesday night at FOX's midseason TV Party.

When we asked where Paula was, Cowell joked, "We forgot to pick her up." The truth was Paula was at home with an eye infection, likely watching "Idol" with the millions of fans who tuned in Tuesday night.
