There’s always been this mysterious vibe between Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul and the judges table on American Idol and The X Factor. Cowell is now admitting that it’s just sexual tension.
During a recent interview for Barbara Walters most fascenating people, Simon Cowell admitted that he “considered” sleeping with Abdul, but didn’t after careful consideration.
“We didn’t like each other in the beginning,” Cowell said, adding, “I think it was sexual tension — on her part.”
Walters asked, “That she really wanted you?”
Cowell replied, “A million percent,”
“What happened? Did you want her?” Walters asked.
“I considered it,” Cowell admitted. “But then I thought, ‘I don’t think the after would be as good as before.'”
They have spent the better part of a decade on TV with each other, so who knows what could have came of those shows had they hooked up.
