LOS ANGELES -- "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul broke her nose over the weekend after she fell while trying to avoid stepping on her Chihuahua.

Her publicist, David Brokaw, said that Abdul is recovering from the mishap and will appear on "American Idol" Tuesday and its season finale on Wednesday.

"She's a little sore, but is doing fine," Brokaw said.

Abdul told the television show "Extra" that she tore cartilage on her nose, fractured her toe and bruised her arm and chest all because of her "little chubby Tulip."

Brokaw said that the dog was not hurt.
