Paula Abdul broke her nose tripping over her dog

When Paula Abdul shows up to judge the American Idol 6 finale tomorrow night, she’ll do so with a broken nose.

She “tripped trying to avoid her Chihuahua, Tulip,” Extra reports, citing Paula’s spokesperson. She “was not hospitalized.” There’s no word if she now resembles Owen Wilson.

Her spokesperson told Us Weekly that she’s fine. “As we speak, she’s in a car on her way to press tour for the finale of Idol.”

Even though she’s okay, we may still have had some drama to look forward to as a result of the injury, since Paula now has a legitimate excuse to get doped up and be wildly entertaining rather than dreadfully boring.
