Paula Abdul's unprofessional behavior has cost her a multi-million dollar deal that included both a fragrance and a cosmetic line. During a meeting with executives, Paula proceeded to answer her cell phone and shoo them away when they attempted to get her attention.
Paula Abdul can’t seem to get her life on track, so she’s hired… a “personal life coach” to get her through the downward spiral that began when she lost a multimillion-dollar deal for her own fragrance and cosmetics line, according to sources…
And Paula could have used a coach in the room when she blew the deal by taking a personal call on her cell phone during the middle of a business meeting with the company’s chief execs!
Having her own fragrance and cosmetics line would have allowed Paula to never worry about money again, said a former business associate.
“But her rude and thoughtless behavior irked executives so much thaey decided to take a pass on Paula.”
According to an insider, Abdul was in the midst of a crucial meeting with the company’s honchos when she started gabbing on her cell phone. The CEO tried getting her attention, but Paula “cut him off, wagging a finger at him and continued to jabber away while everyone waited for her to finish the call.”
The meeting went downhill from there, and the deal fell apart soon after.
