This is an unfortunate reality of being in the spotlight!
X Factor contestant Katie Waissel is apparently so upset over an on-line campaign created to get her eliminated from the competition - in protest of her being selected to move on instead of Gamu Nhengu - that she is now threatening to quit!
A source explains:
"Katie is on the brink - she’s a drama queen at the best of times - but she just feels like she can’t go on. She told producers and spoke to [show judges] Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole and they are both trying to get her to stay. But as outgoing and quirky as she is, she’s only human and she is in tears over the bullying tactics people are using to get her out of the show. She collapsed in tears on Monday night, she hasn’t been eating or sleeping. Then to cap it all, her voice has gone and she went to see a doctor who told her she had to rest and put her on antibiotics. We had no option but to allow her to go home for the evening - she’s not allowed to stay at home, but she had dinner with her parents."
We understand that she's being targeted unfairly due to the circumstances regarding Nhengu, but it's better she learn now that not everyone is going to like her!
If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen, bb!
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed that you can!
