Right now, the only thing the Aussie really has to go on is the fact that his adoptive grandparents, Winifred and Ernest Day, worked in one of the Royal households.The couple’s daughter, Karen, and her husband, David, adopted Simon when he was 18 months old.How else would they have been able to get through eight years of Randy screaming, "Dog!" and Ryan's face getting tanner and tanner while his jokes get more and more awkward?She went on to star on CBS's short-lived television series Live to Dance, which lasted one season in 2011, and was subsequently a judge on the first season of the American version of The X Factor along with her former American Idol co-judge Simon Cowell, the creator and producer of the show.She was also a guest judge on the All-Stars edition of Dancing with the Stars in 2012 and the tenth season of So You Think You Can Dance in 2013, and more recently became a permanent judge for that series along with the Australian version of the show for its 2014 revival.I think we're possibly secretly in love with each other," the mag reports Cowell as saying.Love would certainly explain how—in a matter of seconds—the couple can go from seemingly enraged with each other to giggling together like schoolgirls. Whether or not there will ever be a moniker like Simaula screeching from the tabloids, it is clear they love each other.
The Syco boss said that hiring Abdul as a judge gave the debut season of his Fox show an air of complacency, which had been corrected by the "interesting" additions of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
Abdul was born in San Fernando, California, to Jewish parents.
Abdul's father, Harry Abdul, was born into the Arab-Syrian-Jewish community in Aleppo, Syria, was raised in Brazil, and subsequently emigrated to the United States. An avid dancer, Abdul was inspired towards a show business career by Gene Kelly in the classic film Singin' in the Rain.
Globe interviewed Simon, 50, who revealed his adoptive grandmother Winifred told Simon many times “that I was Camilla and Charles’s child.” Why didn’t granny or Simon come forward and lay claim to the throne after Prince William was born?
Apparently, Winifred was very afraid for Simon’s safety and concerned about what would happen if the truth ever came out.
