Things Paula Abdul is known for: Being a cheerleader. Dancing with a cartoon cat. Not being able to handle her drugs. Pretending to be in a James Dean movie.
It’s hard to believe that she could possibly be 50. We’re pretty sure half that stuff happened last week. Yet there she was June 28 at Tao, doing a joint birthday party with boyfriend Johnny Caprio. Well, it has been a few months since she was fired from being a judge on a talent show. That’s reason enough to celebrate.
Abdul started out at the Palazzo’s Azure pool with Caprio and her parents. From there they went to dinner at Tao along with Extra’s Terri Seymour and 30 others. Unfortunately, MC Skat Kat couldn’t make it. His struggles with alcohol are well documented, and it seems that he got picked up for vagrancy in Pasadena, Calif., where he’s serving six months in a no-kill animal shelter.
His lawyers are trying to get the conviction overturned on appeal, but so far the judge isn’t buying their argument that a retrograde sentence like this is two steps back after the rapper had just taken one step forward in cleaning up his life.
