Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul are back and funnier than ever on The X Factor! was witness to their ridiculous chemistry first-hand during a Q-and-A after the screening at the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood Sept. 14.

Simon, 51, was explaining how much he loves having no age limit on contestants on The X Factor when he dropped a bomb shell.

“This show is about giving older women a second chance,” the British judge said, without even thinking about who was sitting next to him.

Immediately, the audience started cracking up, as Paula, 49, stared at him indignantly. After a brief pause, Simon simply responded, “I wasn’t talking about YOU, sweetheart.”
