Simon Cowell 'Considered' Sleeping With Paula Because She 'Wanted' Him

Simon Cowell says at one point he considered sleeping with Paula Abdul but then decided against it.

"I mean, the truth was, on the first two seasons, we couldn't travel on the same plane together," he told Barbara Walters on her '10 Most Fascinating People of 2011'.

"We really disliked each other that much. It was sexual tension... on her part."

"You think Paula Abdul wanted you?," asked Walters.

"A million percent," he replied with a grin. "I considered it, but then I thought, I don't think the after would be as good as the before."

"I'd let her stay for a few hours, but then it would have to be goodnight."

But the two now "obviously like each other," he said, "and I think you can see that."

As for his new show not delivering 'American Idol'-like numbers, Cowell promised "it will get there eventually."

"I'll be unhappy," he added, if it doesn't. "I like winning. If I play Monopoly with you, and you win, I'm not happy."
