Paula Abdul John Stamos

Paula Abdul John Stamos, 2005 – In 1990 I DJ’d a big college graduation party for John Stamos’s sister at Paula Abdul’s top-o-the-Hollywood Hills house. Stamos and Abdul were dating at the time and she had a big spread with outdoor tennis courts, so it was an ideal spot for a party.
People think Abdul’s cheerleading sweetness on American Idol must be an act, but she was just as warm, encouraging and solicitous of me back then as she is of the singers on the show. She was down with my DJness, responding with some very enthusiastic dancing – and that woman can dance.
At the end of the night we were chatting — recall this was the height of her musical fame — and I said something about being worn out and sore after hauling my equipment up and down the MANY steps that led to her tennis courts. Then, to my amazement, she pulled me onto her lap and gave me a quick back rub – did a damn good job, too. I had already been a fan of her unpretentious, tuneful and thumping dance music, but after that I dug her hard. After some tough years, I was very happy for her when AI came along and gave her a new career.
This week Abdul, now 42, addresses rumors about “erratic behavior” on the show and elsewhere with People magazine, and on Entertainment Tonight in segments airing tonight and tomorrow.
She says she has been battling chronic pain that began with a cheerleading accident at age 17 which injured a disc in her neck. Then she had “a couple of car accidents” in the 1980s and a plane crash in 1992, which led to seizures, bulimia and depression. But she kept on dancing because “that’s what dancers do.”
