'News to me'

Whatever is going on with Cheryl Cole and the X Factor USA, it appears that there is a definite communications problem between the execs, Simon Cowell, and the rest of the crew. While news of Chezza’s axing whipped around the British grapevine, Paula Abdul, who was supposed to be co-hosting the show with her, doesn’t appear to have a clue about it.

Sneaky journos were clearly trying to get her perspective on Cole being replaced by former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, but Abdul, who once starred alongside a cartoon cat in ‘Opposites Attract’, couldn’t tell them jack.

‘This is all news to me,’ she said. ‘This apparently has captured the news while I was travelling so I'm just finding out things as you are. I don't know whether this is true, you probably know more than I do.

‘All I can tell you is that she is lovely, and I was really excited about the relationship and friendship we were forging. Regardless [of what happens], I'm looking forward to continuing that. She's lovely.’
