Oh boy. This is going to be uncomfy.
Although Cheryl Cole was unceremoniously fired from her position as a judge on the American edition of The X Factor, network bosses are forcing her to come back to film new material - and she's NOT pleased!
Apparently, as part of her agreement to get paid in full for the job, despite only filming four episodes, she needs to return to the show to film scenes that will transition between her exit and Nicole Scherzinger taking her place!
A source explains:
“She made no secret of the fact that she does not want to go – and agreed only because TV channel Fox bosses gave her no option. She left it until the last possible day to collect her visa because she didn’t want to be spotted. Her visa has been sponsored by Fox television so there is no doubt that’s why she is going back. They need her to film some scenes in order to make her brief appearance on the panel make sense to the viewers. She really isn’t happy about it.”
Yeah! We wouldn't be either!
Especially because pretty much EVERYONE is aware of what went down behind the scenes, and it's going to look VERY silly to try and make it look as though any part of this clusterfuck was amicable!
Oh well! The 'magic' of television at its finest! LOLz!
Hang in there, Chezza!
