Paula Abdul and J.T. Torregiani

Paula Abdul‘s got a boyfriend and she doesn’t care who knows it! The part-time reality TV trainwreck has come clean about her relationship with restauranteur , whom she’s been rumored to be dating for almost a month. Paula brought J.T. to the New York premiere of Hairspray on Monday (pictured right), which led Matt Lauer to ask if T.J. was her dude on Wednesday’s Today. Her response? “Yeah, he’s a good guy.” She also told Matt that her love life is “looking upward.”It may be true, but she’s looking down at J.T. — upholding her cougar reputation, the 45-year-old Paula’s new man is a 32-year-old spring chicken.For more shots of Paula (and J.T.) at the Hairspray premiere, check out the pics below.
