Mandy Moore Helps Fight Malaria

Filed under: Mandy MooreCharity

Mandy Moore paid a visit to the Central African Republic to get a feel for what it’s like to fight malaria, a disease being spread in large part by mosquitoes. She partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help hand out insecticide-treated mosquito nets.

"It was an honor to join this trip to help prevent malaria, which continues to kill nearly one million people every year,” said Moore. "This week I've met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep."

Moore also appealed to fans to help out.

"Over the next week the partnership will deliver over 400,000 nets, nearly half the amount it will take to fill the gap. It takes just $10 to help - I hope more people will join us to make sure these families can sleep safely under an anti-malaria net. Together, we can cover the country."

Hopefully we can all band together and help stop this terrible disease!

Did Cheryl Tweedy Snub Nadine?!

Oh, great!

Tensions have reportedly escalated between Nadine Coyle and Cheryl Tweedy after Tweedy never responded to a text from her former bandmate!

Coyle claimed that when she heard of Tweedy's recent bout with malaria, she extended an olive branch!

She explains:

"I don't know, I really don't know. I texted to make sure she was alright and everything, but I think she must have been busy or whatever."

These two need to just resolve their issues, give up on trying to be solo artists, and reunite Girls Aloud so they can be great again!

Enough is enough!

Thoughts??

Nicole Scherzinger May Be Joining U.S. X Factor!

We could get behind this!

Nicole Scherzinger is apparently on the short list to join the judging panel of the US version of Simon Cowell's X Factor!

Gurlfriend apparently KILLED IT during her stint on the show - she was filling in for Cheryl Tweedy while she was out of commission with malaria - and Simon was so impressed that he's ready for her to take the position full time!

A source reveals:

"Nicole blew Simon away - after the first two days of filming with her, Simon told Louis it had been one of the best two days of X Factor filming ever. Her appearance was always being viewed as an 'audition' for X Factor US, but no one expected her to be quite as good as she was."

We think she would be fantastic - shiz, she was even good as a judge on that acapella competition - but what will this will mean for our Chezza?!

What do you think?? Should Nicole become a full-time judge on X Factor??

Thank goodness! It is SO good to you smiling again, bb!

Cheryl Tweedy was spotted out for the first time since contracting malaria over the summer, and although we think she looks a little too thin and a little too pale, she's got the right attitude with a nice smile on her face!

Someone is DEFINITELY feeling better!

Keep laying low and getting lots of rest, gurl!

You'll be back to your old self in no time!

Thoughts??

After battling a severe case of malaria, Cheryl Tweedy is returning to X Factor this week, although her first segment will be an interview filmed in her home.

"Cheryl loves the show and is desperate to get back to work. She's under doctors' orders to that it easy. But it's a big step that she's back on board," claims a source.

But she is ready to return to the elimination stage at the Judges Houses next month.

"She has put all her energy into getting better and it's paid off. Simon has told her he can't wait to have her back," added a friend.

We can't wait either!

Recovering Cheryl Tweedy Worried That Her Voice Won't Come Back!

Filed under: Music MinuteCheryl Cole

Just give yourself time to heal, bb! We're sure you will be FINE!

While Cheryl Tweedy was in the hospital with malaria, she apparently lost her voice for a period of five days, and is now is concerned that her vocals are damaged for good!

An insider claims:

"Doctors have told her that it will come back, but she's full of worry."

Cheryl has apparently been attempting to remedy the negative effects on her vocal chords by drinking hot water with honey, cinnamon, and lemon, and we're sure that if she keeps up with that - AND TAKING IT EASY - she will be back to normal in no time!

Just try and relax, gurl! You're going to stress yourself out with all of this worrying!
