"I'm shocked, SHOCKED!"
Hot Mess "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul admits in an interview with "Ladies Home Journal" that she was addicted to pain killers for 12 years.
According to the interview, Abdul says she wore a patch that delivered pain medication 80 times more potent than morphine, also popped muscle relaxers, had trouble sleeping and would sometimes "get weird."
The dubiously-talented former pop diva is the latest celeb to resort to rehab in a desperate attempt to jump-start her sagging career, as rumors spread that the she may not be asked to renew her Idol contract.
Rev. Steve was quoted as saying, "I'm shocked! She hid it so well. I'm usually really good at reading people. I haven't been so caught off guard since Clay Aiken came out."
