Paula Abdul isn’t wasting any time after leaving American Idol. EW is reporting the former Idol judge is in talks to guest star on Ugly Betty. According to Michael Ausiello, “Details of Abdul’s role are being kept under wraps but an Ugly insider tells me that she’d be playing a new temp at Mode who bonds with Becki Newton’s Amanda. If a deal can be made, this would mark Abdul’s first official post-Idol gig. (Her upcoming appearance on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva was brokered before she twittered her resignation.)”
Meanwhile, Zap2It has confirmed that Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) is going to have an America’s Next Top Model contestant for a daughter. ABC confirms that Cycle 3 runner-up Yaya DaCosta, who has played Cassandra Foster for the past year on All My Children, will be playing Wilhelmina’s daughter Nico starting in the Friday, Oct. 9 Season Four premiere. Nico was previously played by Jowharah Jones back in 2006 for three episodes.
