My new Wellbella interview with pop icon Paula Abdul -- on turning 50, falling and rising again


Check out my new Wellbella cover story with pop icon Paula Abdul!

Like the generations of women who’ve related to her struggles and successes, the effervescent Paula Abdul can’t believe she’s reaching 50 in June. But make no mistake: The celebrated, but recently dismissed, “X Factor” judge and “Drop Dead Diva” proclaims, “I’ve only scratched the surface!” Modest words from onetime L.A. Lakers head-cheerleader-turned-breakthrough dancer/choreographer/songwriter-turned-TV-star-and-businesswoman, whose past battles with bulimia and chronic pain have at times overshadowed her Grammy- and Emmy-decorated career highs. But she’s happy to wear the label “survivor.” “I’m no different than anyone else,” she says. “There are days I feel great about myself. And there are days I feel, Wow, I am getting older. When I do feel a little down on myself, I immediately say, ‘I am grateful.’ And I write down all the things I am grateful for.”
