Is Paula Abdul ready for 'Dancing with the Stars?'

And we are so excited! As a judge or a contestant, we have no clue. We're hoping contestant. 

Here's the scoop: ABC has reportedly offered Abdul a $1,000,000 development deal, if she agrees to appear on the next season of "DWTS." 

According to TMZ, in the proposed deal ABC would also let Paula do "The X Factor" with Simon Cowell.

Paula has to decide fast. If she's doing "DWTS" this season, taping starts soon, like in March.

The Dish Rag thinks this is an awesome idea for Paula, who had a bit of a rough career patch during those public "Idol" negotiations.
