Paula Goodspeed

Born: 1978-??-?? - Died: 2008-11-12
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Paula Goodspeed’s body was found in her car near the Los Angeles home of Paula Abdul on November 12, 2008, she had apparantly commited suicide.

Jeff Ballard, a representative for Abdul, said that she was “shocked and saddened” by Goodspeed’s death.

Carrie Underwood and Diana DeGarmo took a moment to reflect and show respect for Paula Goodspeed. DeGarmo went on to say, “To hear that something like that has happened makes you very scared as a celebrity of some sort, because we all [like to get all dressed up for events like the CMAs] — it's all glitz and glamour — but it's things like that that people don't normally get to know; it's also a double side of celebrity stardom. I think that's just a terrible, terrible tragedy and I feel for the person that was out in front of her home, for her family, and especially for Paula, because she's a lovely person and I can only imagine what she's going through.”

Who was Paula Goodspeed : Goodspeed was a former contest on the hugely popular show American Idol. She auditioned for season five in 2005, and was closely followed by the producers.

Even though she had no singing ability, she gained semi-stardom through Youtube. Goodspeed claimed that her audition videos had been seen over a million times.

Goodspeed didn’t hide the fact that she was a huge Paula Abdul fan, and the two women became fast friends, keeping in touch well after he audition process was over.

  28. moravich Says:

    tho it was sad you died, in life it would appear you had a very unnatural attachment to paula abdul. simons comments should not have effected you so…. he is an idiot, still, your singing voice was quite awful, and that is something any one in you life… who supposedly really loved you… should have told you. If your own family and friends were more honest with you, rather than encouraging your terrible voice and style, you would still be here today.

  29. Decacat Says:

    This woman killed herself how is tha brave? Someone said it was brave in the above comments. The fact is she wanted to lick ms. Abdul’s snatch. So she whacked herself in the car near her house. Young ladies and gentleman stay away from the Abdul pussy.

    And, judging from Twitter, the general consensus was that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal brought the house down with his speech. So, we asked the Jindal folks to pass along the speech, which they did.
