Lopez is rumored to have signed a deal with producers for a $12 million salary today. Turns out that thoseÃ‚Â diva demands Lopez made which allegedly “got out of hand” weren’t so terrible after all. Though it appears that Lopez wanted film and TV development deals in addition to her salary, she was happy with what they counter-offered and made it official just in time for auditions, which have already begun. Thank God, because if we had to sit through Randy Jackson critiquing auditions alone we’d claw our own eyes and ears out.
Even though Paula Abdul is ancient history, it’s interesting to note that her asking price last season was also $12 million, and producers refused it. Personally, we think she would have been worth it. What do you think – is J. Lo more valuable than Paula, or is this whole thing just a sign that the show is going down the crapper?
