Sometimes you have to leave something good and move on from it in order to realize that you should have stayed put in the first place and that seems to be exactly the case for Arsenio Hall.
In case you don’t remember him, Arsenio was THE late night man from 1989-94.
His show was crazy and everyone watched it religiously.
They were adorable and Arsenio has always insisted that no matter what transpired between them, Paula is his girl and he loves her to death.According to the May 20th print edition of , the couple is back together again and this time around, Arsenio is sure he’s going to do things the right way.They have given this relationship thing a couple spins over the years but supposedly now Arsenio has come to accept that his life is infinitely better with Paula by his side. Paula convinced Arsenio that now is the time to come back to the talk show circuit and after making some phone calls on Arsenio’s behalf, he got a new gig. Nearly 20 years after "The Arsenio Hall Show" wrapped its five-year run, the comedian returned to take another stab at late-night supremacy.The new show kicked off on Monday night with Hall in a therapy session, where he said he would work hard to get to number one, and then he'd get to stay in late-night forever!
The highlight of the premiere, though, may have been a surprise that even Arsenio Hall didn't see coming.
Paula Abdul showed up and got sincere for a moment. "You know, you’ve done something that no one’s ever done before, or let alone even tried.
To come back, 20 years, and step back into this spotlight.”She said that he'd been missed, and then teased him by asking if he would be moving out of her pool house now that he was working again.
Abdul and Hall famously dated back at the height of his fame during his original talk show.
Rumor even has it that I was able to raise my son in a way that my parents weren't able to be in my life ...
But as [he needs] me a little less, I'm going to start addressing the fact that I miss late-night and I might want to try to go back." Perhaps most importantly, his son is fully behind his decision.
