In a post titled “Cheryl Cole: Nicole Scherzinger deserves everything she gets,” Celebrity news & style notes that the 28-year-old former judge would “have come to blows with Simon” under the insults Scherzinger has borne of late. And Cole’s got no sympathy for the chick who supplanted her — “[a]s far as Cheryl’s concerned,” a friend of Cole’s said, “it’s a kind of justice.”
Some X Factor critics are equally cold concerning Scherzinger, with The New York Times’s Neil Glenzinger leading the pack. “[J]udicially speaking,” Glenzinger drawls, Scherzinger is “not much more than a seat warmer.”
Looks like it’s turning out to be a tough week for Nicole. But in her favor, at least, she can shrug off pretty much anything Cheryl Cole says as sour grapes.
