This site looks cool.

jmullen of coloradoJan 30, 2014

I want to rephrase that Paula is a heck of a singer and dancer, not a hack of a dancer. Also very misunderstood as well.

jmullen of coloradoJan 30, 2014

A member of the media 10 years ago called her Paula Abfool. Not cool towards a lady who has had a heartbreaking social life but who is a hack of a dancer!

I hope it's true she is back with Arsenio
