In a hush-hush appearance, Paula Abdul worked out yesterday in Bentonville with cheerleaders/dance teamers/etc.
The appearance was so under wraps that some Bentonville High School administrators did not know about Abdul's presence on campus until about 11 a.m.
Black construction paper blocked the narrow windows on doors to the school's main gym. Orange signs said "Gym closed all day. Do not enter."
That didn't stop some students from finding chinks in the construction paper and getting some digital shots of Abdul on their cell phones.
