After a controversial week on “The X Factor” that saw her allegedly tell Nicole Scherzinger how to vote, Paula Abdul seemed to have had enough of the controversy on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night.

Kimmel said that Abdul’s contestants deserved to be the first voted off, causing Abdul to leave the couch and walk off the set (seemingly as a joke although some media pundits thought otherwise). Kimmel immediately joked that “Paula Abdul has eliminated herself from the competition.”

The interview featured Kimmel questioning Paula, as well as the other judges, about their votes, telling them that they had been voting to keep weaker players. After Simon Cowell convinced Abdul to return, Kimmel immediately set in on the chemistry between the two, asking if anything sexual had ever happened between the two.

Paula quipped that foreplay for Cowell was “looking at his own baby picture.”

Cowell retaliated that he had thought about it, “But then I’d have to talk to her afterwards.”
