Simon on ex-'American Idol' judge Paula: 'I miss her, of course.'

simoncowell_americanidol_290.jpg Simon Cowell told Extra that he misses ex- "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul.

In his first interview since this whole hullabaloo went down, Cowell told Terri Seymour at Extra that of course he misses Paula Abdul and that the chemistry between the judges is "different" now.

When asked to clarify what he meant, he said, "It's like comparing a carrot to a banana." In my head, I really enjoy hearing his British accent on "bah-nah-nah." Heh.

I'm sure it will be interesting to see how the revolving door of guest judges mesh with the current judges. It should certainly add some spice to my recaps because there should practically be a new judge every episode.
