LOS ANGELES - Talk about bad timing. Paula Abdul broke her nose this weekend - days before the season finale of American Idol - when she fell while trying to avoid stepping on her chihuahua, Tulip.
Abdul appeared as scheduled on Idol's final performance show Tuesday night. There was no sign of her injury, except for fellow judges Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell pointing at her nose during her introduction at the show's start
"I'm okay. ... It's just bruised, " she said when host Ryan Seacrest asked her about it. "Simon says it's sexier."
Abdul, 44, earlier told the syndicated entertainment TV show Extra that she tore cartilage in her nose and fractured a toe.
