Former pop pin-up Paula Abdul reportedly plans to give Americans something to laugh about as she endures her current controversy - by making an appearance on comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The STRAIGHT UP singer, who's being investigated for an alleged affair with a former American Idol contestant, will make an appearance on the longrunning NBC show tomorrow (07MAY05), according to entertainment magazine show The Insider.

A spokesman for the show will only say that NBC is hopeful such plans will come together.

Former American Idol contestant COREY CLARK claimed this week (ends06MAY05) that Abdul had an affair with him while he was competing in 2003 and coached him on how to do better on the show.
