Abdul leaves ‘Factor’

Abdul leaves ‘Factor’

Paula Abdul joined the exodus from Fox’s disappointing “The X Factor,’’ attributing her departure to business trumping all else. Abdul said yesterday she won’t return to “dear friend’’ Simon Cowell’s singing contest when it begins its second season later this year. Her announcement followed Monday’s exits of fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones. Despite respectable ratings, “X Factor’’ has failed to achieve popularity similar to Fox’s “American Idol.’’ (AP)

More from Reynolds

Debbie Reynolds must have thought she’d said it all in her memoir a quarter-century ago. But now she’s got plenty more to share, including her tale of betrayal by her third husband that left the film legend divorced anew, not to mention financially bankrupt. William Morrow publishers said yesterday that Reynolds, 79, will release her tell-all tome, “Unsinkable,’’ next year. (AP)
