DWTS‘ Samantha Harris Wants Paula Abdul’s Dressing Room

Now that Paula Abdul has left American Idol, Dancing With the Stars host Samantha Harris wants her dressing room. (Abdul filmed her Fox show at the same Los Angeles studio where Harris shoots her ABC hit.)

"In past seasons when Dancing wasn't going on at the same time as Idol, I woud have Paula's dressing room, and it's fabulous!" Harris tells Johnjay and Rich on Phoenix's KISS FM. "It's a really cute, big pink dressing room. I should start putting my name in for it now… Maybe I'll get the dressing room finally."

If she does, she might not want to get too comfortable.

The president of ABC said earlier this month that he "would love" to have Abdul join DWTS this season. There was speculation that she has been asked to participate as a judge or even as a contestant, but her name wasn't on the list of celebrity dancers released Monday.

"We now know she's not going to be a contestant, so maybe she'll make an appearance some other way," Harris said.
