Paula Abdul’s stalker – was a stalker

November 14th, 2008 // 36 Comments

Recently, a narrative has started that Paula Goodspeed, the woman found dead outside Paula Abdul’s home from an apparent overdose/suicide, was not a stalker and Paula Abdul killed her. Goodspeed’s friends and family have come to her defense despite overwhelming evidence including her real name is actually Sandra, and she’s OD’d before outside Paula Abdul’s house. Also, People reports Ms. Goodspeed dropped some crazy on the American Idol judge’s doorstep just last week:

Last week, Paula Abdul got flowers with a note signed, “Love, J.T.” and the message, “Hope you’re doing great. Here’s my new cell number.”
Thinking they had come from her restaurateur boyfriend J.T. Torregiani, Abdul called him asking why he had changed his number, a source close to Abdul tells PEOPLE. When he said he hadn’t, Abdul knew immediately who really sent them: ex-American Idol contestant Paula Goodspeed, according to the source.
“The flower thing was really scary – Paula [Abdul] really couldn’t handle that. She was terrified,” says the source.

But still, friends of Paula Goodspeed insist she’s innocent and wasn’t obsessed with Paula Abdul, according to NY Daily News:

But a good friend has rushed to the defense of 30-year-old Paula Goodspeed, telling the Daily News that the aspiring singer wasn’t a suicidal, “looney freakazoid” still obsessing over the mocking she received at her September 2005 “American Idol” audition.
Instead, Goodspeed was upbeat and planning for the future when she last communicated with pal Brianna Schlanger less than 24 hours before cops recovered her body Tuesday.
“She sent me a text at 10:22 the night before about meeting for a latte and movie. She ended the message with a happy face,” said Schlanger, a model from Reseda, Calif. “She seemed fine. Something must have happened after that. It needs to be further investigated.”

Okay, like most red-blooded Americans I believe in my heart of hearts that Paula Abdul eats small children while downing gin – and might possibly be the Devil. That said, Paula Goodspeed was undoubtedly a “looney freakazoid” stalker. And, if the mountain of evidence isn’t enough, she ended her text message with a smiley face. Case closed :D

NOTE: Here’s a screen grab from Goodspeed’s MySpace page that displays a Paula Abdul photo with the caption “My secret crush…. Shhhhhhhh!” You know what keeps a good secret? Not OD’ing outside your crush’s house. Crazy, I know. But it just might work.

    yea, i’m gonna go with stalker on this one….

  3. Righhhhtttt. Not a stalker. She had a personalized Abdul Lover license plate (for one)

  4. I like how her friend thinks Paula Goodspeed’s death “needs to be investigated” because she sent a text message with a smily face at the end, the day before she ODed. Well then, she MUST have been happy!! How could she have ever ODed!?

  5. Wow! Just like the new John Stamos movie. What’s that called again?

  6. This doesn’t surprise me. I oftentimes send my secret crush flowers and hang out down the block in my car with a bottle of klonopin and a fifth of whiskey. I just don’t understand why Steve Buscemi won’t return my calls!!

  7. dork

    I get terrified every time someone sends me flowers. CREEPY!

    Another good excuse for Paula to start abusing drugs and alcohol again.

    Paula wouldn’t kill somebody. Randy’s probably killed at least 10 people. But not Paula.

  15. ToTellTheTruth

    ALL I can say is..this chic coulda found a BETTER person to kill herself behind…Paula Abdul???? WTF????

  16. miggs

    It was all secret code. Paula told this psycho to kill herself when she said, on American Idol, “a fortune cookie says the moth who finds the melon finds the corn flake always finds the melon and one of you didn’t pick the right fortune.”

  17. I used to stalk MC Skat Kat

  18. MC Skat Kat

  22. RE: kipsy

    How about a little respect for the fucking living. That jkennifer Hudson comedy happened and we acted appropriately by making fun of it, but this IS just a big goddamn joke to us. hope your friends and family get the same chuckle out of your death we do, asshole.

  23. p0nk

    With any luck, this is the beginning of the end for American Idol. Fox will put pressure on Simon Cowell to stop being such a dickhead, and then who would watch this crap?

  24. Randal

    Paula, you’re a fashion trend setter! I love your outfit and it makes you look even more cute, if that’s even possible. Love the boots girl, they go well with your attitude.

    Keep smiling!

    I really don’t like the fact you’re really just making fun of somebody who died a really lonely,sad death after what seems to have been a really sad,lonely and short life.

    That’s kinda screwed up,dontcha think?

  26. Lindalou

    Readership leaves something to be desired when they cant even get the point when the point is pretty clear.

  27. Lindsay

    holy SHIT that last picture of Paula will give me nightmares

  28. Marianna

    So, when Paula called her boyfriend to ask him why he changed his number, and he said he hadn’t..
    Had she called his old number even though supposedly it was changed?
    Or did she somehow talk to him another way. I don’t get it.

    Also, she was probably lonely for more reasons than insanity.
    There can’t be a single other person in the world that was obsessed with Paula Abdul.
    My brain would explode.

  29. GG1000

    You know, sorry and all to the family, but it’s very difficult to argue that the woman wasn’t mentally ill when proof is shown that she committed suicide. Ya know, sometimes there’s a link there…mental illness…suicide…just sayin’ It IS sad, and the saddest thing would be if her family had refused to admit she was disturbed and get her some treatment.

    And just WHAT was Ms. Abdul’s reason for stalking Paula Goodspeed? I think it’s just shocking that a so-called celeb can go about stalking ordinary people, kill them, and then get away with it!

    I DEMAND that the LAPD treat this event with all the seriousness it warrants!

    Ms. Abdul should be put on trial ASAP!

    And shame on all of you posters who side with Ms. Abdul! SHAME ON YOU! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

    Yeah, you’d have to be a massive passive aggressive basket case to work yourself into enough of a huge slathering metal mouthed frenzy over being rejected by Paula and friends to actually freaking ingest enough drugs to kill yourself on purpose while positioned just outside Paula’s home to make sure you’ve martyrized yourself as the idol contestant who couldn’t take the truth from her unappreciative public since you have no other redeeming qualities in life except dressing like a freakin’ gypsy and calling it “something not everyone can pull off.” Coward. Loser. I can’t take the truth so I’m just gonna kill myself. Loser. I just hate people like her. Paula Abdul is so much better that her. All she did was try to piggy back off Paula then tried to steal her celebrity with her sick suicide stunt. Don’t feel sorry for this lunatic. Watch the video. This is a cut off my own nose to spite my face type of person, like me. What a harsh, evil heart, it’s even worse than mine. This was her way of getting back at American Idol. Maybe it was devastatin’, but she had no talent. AI was right. I never wanted to hear her sing again.

  32. I heard that she appeared on a millionaire & celebrity dating club ^^^^^^MillionaireLoving. C O M^^ ^^^^with a personal account there. Maybe you have the chance to talk to her online or meet some celebrities there. It is amazing.

  33. She probably identified with Paula Abdul because neither one of them had an impressive singing voice. Even Simon noticed.
    She needed a William Hung attitude. That guy is an inspiration to the vocally impaired.

    I think Paula mostly scraped by with the singing and filled in the void with dancing and charm (and songs tailor made to get the most out of her shrill nasal whine).
    Aguilera can get away with being an obnoxious putz because she can sing, but Paula had to use a different approach.

    @ 19-21 ummm…she was like 30 yrs old. Seems her friends, or SHE HERSELF, should have noticed that this excessive interest in some celebrity over so many years was kind of unhealthy. Nice to have role model, but you should start developing yourself at some point.

    why would anyone stalk Abdul, eesh

  35. January is National Stalking Awareness Month. See http://www.stalkingawarenessmonth.org. From some of the comments I have read about the Paula/Idol controversy, it is very clear that we need to devote a great deal of attention to stalking awareness. 78% of stalking victims are women and 87% of stalkers are men. 8% of all women in this country are stalked. 54% of female murder victims reported their stalkers to the police before they were killed by their stalkers. Not only are the women stalked harmed physically, mentally, emotionally and often, financially — even having to leave their jobs or being fired — but their children and everyone else around them suffer. Men are affected because these women are their wives, girfriends, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, granddaughters, cousins, friends, etc.

    It’s undisputed that Paula Goodspeed did stalk Paula Abdul. There is no indication that Paula Abdul did anything to harm Paula Goodspeed, so why are so many people attacking the stalking victim? What if this stalker had done as she threatened to do and killed Paula Abdul to make her her “guardian angel?” The big question that people should ask is whether the producers of Idol knew it when they let her on the show. Paula Abdul alleges that they let a known stalker of one of their employees into her workplace. It is crucial that people understand the seriousness of workplace stalking. Most stalking situations begin as domestic violence issues and may spill over into the workplace (see, e.g. Gantt v. Security, USA at http://www.dvmartinlaw.com/GanttvSecurityUSA) and others involve stalkers who are delusional strangers. Any woman may be stalked by an obsessed workplace stranger, while doing nothing more than “working while female;” yet, there is no federal statute that specifically prohibits employers from retaliating against stalking victims or require an employer to keep a stalker out of the workplace. (Of course, men are stalked too, but to a much smaller degree and with much less chance of violence toward them.) Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment. I am currently before the United States Supreme Court, asking the Court to address workplace stalking under Title VII. See http://www.dvmartinlaw.com/Martin and See recent http://alexisamoore.blogspot.com/2008/11/111408-us-supreme-court-will-decide.html.
    If the Court doesn’t apply Title VII, we need a new federal statute that specifically prevents employer retaliation against stalking victims (such as firing them) and obligates employers to take reasonable steps to keep known stalkers out of the workplace.

  36. yes i really appreciate with anyone whose comment on this blog.I don’t like the fact you’re just making fun of somebody who died a lonely,sad death after what seems to have been a really sad.
