paula abdul getty 400 Paula Abdul: No 'Star Search' for meABC may still mount a new version of “Star Search,” but the network will do so without the services of Paula Abdul.

Abdul had been talking with the network about joining the show, but Zap2it has confirmed that she and ABC weren’t able to reach an agreement. The network hasn’t given up on “Star Search” altogether, though.

]]>tweeted a note of caution to her fans: “Once again, until you hear it from me, you can’t believe what you read ;).” Considering that she also announced her “Idol” departure via Twitter, everyone maybe should’ve cooled their jets until she said something. Somehow we suspect both sides will be OK after the dissolution of the talks. ABC may go ahead with the show anyway, and Abdul hasn’t lacked for post-“Idol” job offers either. She has pretty much an open invitation to appear on “So You Think You Can Dance” at FOX, and her former “Idol” cohort/nemesis Simon Cowell has hinted that he’d love to have her for his American “X Factor” when it launches in 2011.
