Paula Abdul is about to be ridiculed at a theater near you -- and she doesn't even know it. A source tells us Sacha Baron Cohen, playing a wildly gay Austrian TV reporter in "Bruno," conducted a wacky interview with the "American Idol" judge.
"Paula was totally fooled. She bought into his character and to this day isn't aware she was fooled," the insider said.
Abdul's rep had no immediate comment. Universal, which releases the flick July 10, also had no comment.
How many of you wouldn't want to live 24/7 in Paula's pill-filled haze? Oblivious to her own craziness. If American Idol stops working out for her, I'm sure she has a big future on Intervention.
