You will have better results if you remove the wallpaper and paint the walls.

I have done this a couple of times. Just remember the paint job is only as good as the original wallpaper. I.e. you want to "fix" any aberrations in the wallpaper such as bubbles. Use a "high adhesion" primer first and then any good quality latex paint. I have used both latex primer and shellac based primer with success. Good luck.
