While backstage at the 64th Annual Tony Awards Gift Lounge, Paula Abdul had a lot to talk about regarding Simon Cowell's departure from American Idol. While the rumors have been swirling about who is going to replace him -- names like Bret Michaels and Howard Stern have been tossed around -- Abdul named her official choice: Simon's mother!
"I think Simon's mom would be brilliant because who knows him better than she?" Abdul gushed to PopEater backstage at the gift lounge.
