Paula Abdul to have bat mitzvah at the Kotel


Better late than never, as they say! At 51 years young, former “American Idol” and “X Factor” judge Paula Abdul will celebrate her bat mitzvah at the Western Wall, The Times of Israel reports.

Abdul, who was raised Jewish and has recently been linked to Chabad, is arriving in Israel on Monday. In addition to marking this milestone in Jerusalem, she will also visit Tel Aviv and the Galilee, and meet with President Shimon Peres.

That all sounds fascinating, but here’s what we really want to know: What will Abdul wear to the ceremony, and is Ryan Seacrest doing the video?
