Latex paint should do the job, but why not remove the wall paper all together, and use all paint?  The reason I say this is because even though it will stick to the wall paper, if the wall paper comes off so does the paint...

Is your wallpaper in good shape? If it is, it is possible for you to paint on top of it. I would highly recommend using an oil- based paint. It will stick very well to your wallpaper. Since wallpaper glue is water based, water based paint could possibly reactivate the glue underneath and cause the wallpaper to come up. 


If you have any more questions, let us know!
