Cheryl Cole: Lies, Channel FIVE And Mental Illness

by | 30th, May 2011

WHAT news of Cheryl Cole? By now you’ll be wondering how she’s getting on in the USA. Are they, like us in the UK, attributing all manner of non-existent attributes upon the Geordie singer?

Well, the Mail tells us:

However, the Daily Mail has learned that since being sacked Mrs Cole has become ‘uncontactable’. She has refused to take phone calls from TV executives,

The Mirror says:

CHERYL Cole’s dreams of success on American X Factor were shattered by her secret battle against depression, friends revealed last night. The Girls Aloud star, 27, is still reeling after being axed from the show and sources say she has been “crying all week” since the news was made public.

Depression is an illness. Feeling low is not. Mental illness is misunderstood enough without the tabloid media making it into something you get when not everyone loves you and you are forced to live in a six-star hotel and paid a fortune to smile and talk in a faux folksiness. If physical illness was as misappropriated as mental illness, the Mirror’s story would feature Cole wearing a plaster on the tip of her little finger.

Anyhow, back to the other facts. And having ascertained that Cole is weak, weepy and not talking to any TV executives, the Daily Star tells us:



An insider said: “Cheryl’s had a knock but she’s full of Geordie grit and is going to come back fighting.

“America didn’t work out but she is still a megastar in Britain.

“She is determined to get back on the box and show the world just what they’re missing.

“There’s already a £5million offer on the table and she no longer needs Simon to succeed.”

Hmmm. Any idea what the Star’s Emma Wall is talking about? Incidentally, the Star is sister organ to Channel Five…
