paulaabdulWe love our Paula, whether she’s coherent or not. And we’ll be seeing more of her on TV, it appears: Paula Abdul will mix her actual life with fiction as she guest stars in a new drama for Lifetime.

It’s been confirmed the “American Idol” star will play a fiction version of herself on Lifetime‘s drama series soon to debut, “Drop Dead Diva.”

Next week, Paula will film her role as a judge in an episode of the show, which stars Brooke Elliott as a former skinny model who dies and wakes up in the body of a “bigger girl” attorney named Jane. Talk about twisting things up a bit.

It seems Jane was told by a partner in her firm to throw in the towel on a particularly rough case, and Paula will appear in a dream sequence to convince Jane otherwise.

This show attracts other females stars as well: its also been confirmed that Rosie O’Donnell is a part of several episodes. Girl Power! “Drop Dead Diva” premieres Sunday July 12 at 9 PM.
