What Caused Chezza To Get The Boot From The X Factor?

Although we doubt that we'll ever hear the full, true story as to why Cheryl Cole was axed only weeks into her position as judge on the US version of The X Factor, there are a variety of reports circulating as to what exactly went down behind the scenes, and dear lord, does it sound messy!

One alleged source close to the production of the series claims that the former Girls Aloud singer stepped on the toes of the network bosses because she refused to adapt to US culture AND promote herself better in the States!

The insider explains:

"Instead of attending the Grammy Awards and the Coachella music festival, putting herself out there in America, she sat in her hotel room eating ­digestive biscuits. She just seemed very down. There was too much negativity around her. It's as if she still regrets getting divorced from Ashley Cole, when clearly she was still in love with him. She just didn't help herself. She was ­offered elocution ­lessons and said, 'No.' She was offered a stylist and said, 'No.' And then she came out on the first day ­wearing that hideous outfit. And the reaction from Fox was like, 'What the fuck is she ­wearing?' Cheryl seemed uncomfortable as if she didn't like judging the acts. And at the end of the day that isn't what the TV execs wanted."

Meanwhile, other sources are pointing the finger of blame at Simon Cowell, who seemed to not realize that combining both Chezza and Paula Abdul, who both enjoyed playful banter with him on their previous shows, would be 'disastrous!'

They reveal:

"He never thought through how Cheryl and Paula could work together when their whole performance is based on a giggly, playful relationship with him. Only one can sit next to him and do that. Having the two of them was never going to work, and the fact Simon even entertained the idea shows a lack of judgement that has been noted by everyone in the industry."

Ouch! What an effing mess!

And certainly an embarrassment on everyone's parts, as the judging selection should have NEVER taken this long, let alone a switch-up this late in the game!

Here's hoping that whatever goes down, it can be resolved and quickly!

We don't want this to be an indication of what the show is going to look like when it finally premieres!

Fingers crossed!

    I have never seen this show you speak of. i have never heard of this woman you (constantly) speak of. and now that the woman (again, who i have never heard of ) has been fired from the show (again, which i have never seen), i hope to never hear about her again. thank you.



  2. 2

    I feel sorry for her. I like her ! I was going to watch that stupid show just to see her pretty face and sexy accent. Luckily we have shows like The Voice now!



  3. 3

    Who wrote this piece for you Perez? It was sort of coherent, almost made sense, almost good. Give this writer a raise.



  4. 4

    I called it last year when everyone was yelling, it is the end of Idol. I said Idol will go on and do the same or better and Simon's show is going to tank. You read it here first. Simon's show will do ok the first couple of weeks then drop off and do badly. Idol will be big again next season but that bitch JLO has to come back or it won't. If JLO doesn't come back, get Janet Jackson.

    Perez why you keep bringing up this subject over and over..Who cares! Stop it with this drama, you're the only one talking about this.. She got booted on the 3rd day of filming, its not like she had been working on this for months. And she already got compensated over $2 million for those 3 days of filiming.

    Elocution lessons would have been a huge insult to her. She's a Geordie, shes proud of her accent and shes got a right to be. Its a tribal thing for a lot of people. A mark of where you come from, not just geographically but socially and was a sign that she had clawed her way up from the council estate. To lose that would have been seen as a huge betrayal to a lot of people over here.



  8. 8

    I don't know who she is, but if she falls over she will risk giving herself an instant tracheotomy.



  9. 9

    "Chezza", you a non motherfacking x factor bitch!
    lmao just really really wanted to say that.



  10. 10

    wtf happens to this fucking Chezza? she's on your blog everyday, multiple times a day. don't u have other people to show? Jezz! you're just like a bad radio repeting the same songs over and over and over… oh my!



  11. 11

    She doesn't need a stylist. She's SMOKING hot. Much better dressed than 90% of the skank trash out there. She doesn't need elocution lessons. She has an awesome accent. WHAT happened is that she wouldn't sleep with someone. So they pulled the plug on her.



  12. 12

    If its the first explanation, then its a stupid reason to fire someone. If the 2nd explanation is true, then they should have let Paula go instead and given someone fresh and new a chance to break here in America.I liked the idea of Paula and Simon back together again, but not if it was going to be at Cheryls. She so deserved this gig. They really fucked her over big time.



  13. 13

    what's a digestive biscuit?

    Re: mistique – Meant to say: "…not if it was going to be at Cheryls expense." I also agree with Adg100. I thought I was the only one that was thinking that.I'll bet money some pig propositioned her and she turned him down and he fired her because she wouldn't sleep with him. Its happens all the time in Hollywood.



  15. 15

    Re: adg100 – She's been sucking Simon's dick for awhile now, thats how she got the UK and US X Factor gigs. She's a huge hoe. She's also been sucking Will.i.am and 50 for tracks.



  16. 16

    Ok I'm not a fan of Cheryl, but I don't blame her for not going somewhere if she didn't want to, wearing what she wants to and refusing elecution lessons. The drivel about Ashely cole is just that, I'm sure she's obver him by now. However we know the reason she was axed, she is a nobody in America. Now can we stop treating this as if it's actually news, please?



  17. 17

    It was probably that accent. I'm sorry but Americans have a romanticized vision of England and when a beautiful Brit like Cheryl opens her mouth it sounds like Wallace & Gromit to us, almost comically bad. Not that Simon Cowell is any better with his big tits but he fits into some quotient of the country's expectations.

    I couldn't care less about the X factor in the UK and I certainly don't care about it in the US where I can't watch it so please stop going on about it.



  20. 20

    seriously… i've appreciated reading 100+ stories about Girls Aloud, but I still have no idea who they are. Why would you ever think that someone who hasn't made it "big" in the USA would do ok on a new reality show? It was never going to work… get out of your cloud and admit it.



  21. 21

    she got at least 2 million dollars just to sit there for three days, boo hoo poor girl



  22. 22

    PEREZ…..NO ONE CARES….She was never gonna be big in the USA …everyone could see it bar a few people including YOU…ya must have been paid to be on her side!!… The girl should stick to the UK… USA wont accept a manufactured singer with little talent…they want their own american bread talent



  23. 23

    Poor Cheryl ! I was only going to watch to see & hear her she is amazing ! So happy you keep posting about her ! FOX doesn know what their missing !



  24. 24

    lol remember when these shows were about the contestants and the talent and not the judges…..



  25. 25

    Xfactor has gone down the tubes in the UK - I won't be watching. They have Tulisa as a guest judge. I saw her on another show and she didn't know what a falcon was. Super facepalm & Danni is gone too.

    I think it is ridiculous that they thought people might not be able to understand her. The language she is speaking is called English. Its just an insult to the American public these execs obviously think your retarded.

    So what if she ate a biscuit and was feeling down? Certainly a lot more relatable than these fake super peppy clones you have in the states that tell you they eat so much but you know they starve themselves. She might have felt better if she hadn't moved her whole life to another country to have some execs pussifoot about whether she would get a job or not. Their behaviour has been appalling - I think it goes beyond "just business".

    I was even going to watch the US version to check out how she was doing - not bothered now.



  26. 26

    Good. I am glad that we got rid of that Brit. Couldn't understand one single word that came out of her mouth. Stay where you belong, that is across the pond. Thank You.



  27. 27

    In defense of some of America the people who can read and understand what the word 'elocution' means aren't the people that they wanted to give her the lessons for. And I think the first story does sound plausible. While it may not be fair that she is being punished for not going some places and doing things, it is her 'job' as a 'celebrity' to make these types of appearances whether she wants to or not. She is getting paid big money and by her already acting like a diva and not wanting to go and promote herself and take full advantage of any opportunity given to her doesn't make me feel very bad that she got fired. I get paid a whole lot less and have to go to conferences and seminars that I don't want to attend or else I would lose my job, so I guess I don't feel bad for someone who got paid 2 million yet wouldn't go to the Grammy's or a music festival.

    "Although we doubt that we'll ever hear the full, true story…"

    Yes we will. Here. In daily installments.

    Go away Cheetoh's or whatever the fuck your stupid nickname is.

    most people MARIO, are just seeing short ads for the X FACTOR, COMING THIS FALL! and the ads have SIMON COWELL PICTURED. Guess what mario? The average person which is going to be watching, MIGHT BE AWARE THAT PAULA WILL BE THERE, after that, most don”t care, don't know the names, or DON'T CARE WHO THE OTHER JUDGES ARE! Just like IDOL! How many KNEW OR CARED ABOUT RANDY? or, KARA? or Ellen? I did not even watch most of this year, caught the singers afterward on you tube, tv, etc.



  30. 30

    TV Execs. need to really fucking get over themselves! She's hot! And she's judged before. Why pigeon hold America, and the world into such narrow little concepts. . .I'm sure she was fantastic on screen. And what she did or didn't do behind closed doors, is her business.



  31. 31

    'eating digestive biscuts ' lololol hhahahaha

    this is hilarious

    elocution lessons to chat like a yank hahahahaaaaaaaaa

    this stuff brings tears to my eyes from laughing keep it coming



  32. 32

    Re: justtospeaktruth – LOL!!!!! I second that!



  33. 33

    I lost interest in her when I kept seeing pictures of her and Derek Hough together. Why? He is gay. Desperate.



  34. 34

    If she was Asian it would have been called racist!! Just putting it out there…



  35. 35

    perez, he just wasn't that into you. get over it!



  36. 36

    Re: GayRay – lmao :)



  37. 37

    That rubbish in the first reason stinks of desperation, "still in love with Ashley cole" is that the best you can come up with.

    The REAL reason she was axed is because all you Americans were to stupid to understand what she was saying and your such a biggoted nation that you won't accept an English person unless you don't know they are English. That idiot comparing Wallace and grommits accent to a Geordie accent!? Have you listened to those accents? They are completely and utterly different. It's the difference between Canadian and American.

    I spit on America and all its dumbass inhabitants. Your a disgusting nation, dont believe me? Spend 15 minutes on xbox live or PSN, the only place to hear Americans without the facade.

  38. @v@ says – reply to this


    38

    She'll come out with the real story eventually, unless her payout includes a gag. Celeb or not, anyone could use some healing time from a divorce like the one she involuntarily had to go through. Ashley (nice going, dude) needs to listen to 'You Oughta Know' by Alanis Morissette a few times.



  39. 39

    Re: madMARTYNmarsh – Umm, HELLO! American's never got a chance to judge for themselves because TV executives made that decision for us. For the most part, we Americans love British accents. I for one have never heard an English accent I didn't like.Geordie or not.Second of all, Cheryl has many US fans (myself include) that wanted to see her on the freaking show! I hate when people from other countries use sweeping generalizations about an entire nation of people and judge us all based on the decisions of a few. It's stupid, ignorant and ridiculous. Take that "all you Americans" bullshit and shove it up your ass!



  40. 40

    None of this shiz is official yet. Simon Cowell has along history of pulling these kind of "in and out" casting stunts. If it was a dead cert that she was out, they'd have released a press statement by now - it's all part of the show!



  41. 41

    You ask what happened? It's obvious. She didn't swallow.



  42. 42

    The fact that they signed Paula Abdul on just seems like a stunt casting. They knew that having Simon and Paula on, would give this huge ratings and take the American Idol crowd. They should have gotten rid of Paula, and keep Cheryl Cole instead. A fresh new face would have been better for it.



  43. 43

    What are these digestive biscuits she speaks of? Are they a weight loss/maintenance trick? If so, I really need some … like a whole crate!



  44. 44

    Simon Cowell's shows sucks!!! Generating money out of publicity stunts and tabloids. WON'T be watching any of his rubbish shows again!
