MCFADDEN: You have not consumed alcohol before going on the air?
ABDUL: Never. I've never been drunk in my life. I don't like it. It's not my thing. Spending money on clothes and shoes -- that's another thing.
MCFADDEN: There'd be no dishonor in taking pain medication if you're in pain. Vicodin, Oxycontin, those drugs?
ABDUL: No, no. no no no. will not take those drugs. And you can check my medical records. There is nothing like that. I was never on Oxycontin or Vicodin or anything like that. I was on nerve medicine and anti-inflammatories.
MCFADDEN: But on your reality show ["Hey Paula"] there are so many times where you don't look like you are really there. You're eyes are closing, your head is falling back ...
ABDUL: Because I'm falling asleep and a camera is on me. I don't have anything that is shameful. I don't have anything to be embarrassed about that was NOT accurate documentation of my life.
