Paula Abdul gives Shawn Johnson stalker survival tips

Paulaabdul Does Paula Abdul -- whose stalker Paula Goodspeed killed herself in front of the "American Idol" judge's home --  have any advice for "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Shawn Johnson?

The Olympic champ's alleged stalker was arrested last week after trying to sneak onto the "DWTS" set and had two loaded firearms in his car!

"She's got to stay close to her family," Paula explained on the carpet at the Kids' Choice Awards on Sunday. "It's very unnerving and off-putting, I am certain.

"It's scary and I've been through it. Just keep the faith and stay close to your family and remember security knows best."

Stalker survival tips were much appreciated. Let's hope Paula doesn't try to give Shawn any fashion tips.

"These are all my clothes," "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul explained (ah, now it makes sense) of her silver tank, sheer mesh layer, jeans, bird roadkill pinned in her hair, an overabundance of silver chains and black fishnet fingerless gloves.

Whose is Paula's "Idol" pick?

"I have lots of them. First week, remember I said 'Danny Gokey and Adam Lambert, I'll see you in the finals!' But it's anyone's game," she said, adding, "Allison Iraheta's great." (Note: Allison was misspelled as Alison in an earlier version of this post.)

What do you think of Paula's "Idol" winner choices? Who's yours?
