Late arrival Ryan Seacrest rushed down the red carpet last night at the "Funny People" premiere.
But he did stop to talk to our sister site, Zap2it.com, about the possibility of Paula Abdul leaving "American Idol" because her contract has not been renewed.
Seacrest, it should be noted, negotiated a $45-million contract to continue hosting the show.
But he says he hopes Paula stays and added that he doesn't "want to do the show without her!"
Then how about giving her a few of your millions, Ryan? Surely you can spare the girl one of your 45?
What do you think? Should Paula go or stay? And how much is she worth?
