Cheryl Cole’s Accent Frightens and Confuses Us

Despite appearing at the FOX Upfronts, Cheryl Cole was unceremoniously dropped from the American version of X Factor yesterday and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls. While no official reason was given, it’s being hinted that her British accent was too thick which, of course, is a cover up for how big of a drunk Paula Abdul is. TMZ reports:

Cheryl Cole was dropped from the judging panel on “X-Factor” largely because producers were concerned her English accent would be too difficult for an American audience to understand … sources close to the production tell TMZ.
There were other issues too — we’re told Cheryl and fellow judge Paula Abdul had a “lack of chemistry” … and Cheryl was more expendable.

CHERYL: Does she have to bleeding drink at every rehearsal?
PAULA: *calls 911* Help! HELP! I’m being accosted!
SIMON: Wonderful. Now I have to fire the one who didn’t see me murder babies for their T-shirts. Cheryl, love, a minute?

How that happened.
