So This is Why Cheryl Cole Was Fired From The X Factor

  • 20comments

... Oy mayt, watchoo think uh me accent? Fox HATES it. Apparently the reason British babe Cheryl Cole was fired from The X Factor is that Fox couldn't understand a word she said. Ouch. At the show's recent auditions, she was reportedly booed by audience members. Yikes. That's a brutal way to go out, especially since she gave up her seat on the UK version of the show to make a splash in the States. Rumor has it her chemistry between Paula Abdul was nil as well. Personally, I don't think Cole has to talk at all. [Daily Mail]

... Finally! People who like to have sex outside of their marriages are getting their own reality show! Lionsgate TV is developing Bedroom Community, a docudrama following swingers (and not a XXX porn parody of NBC's community college comedy). How did this take so long!?!? [Deadline Hollywood]

... I know you've been waiting with bated breath for NBC's Love in the Wild, but unfortunately you'll have to wait a little longer for the show that combines Survivor, The Bachelor, and a steaming pile of poo. NBC has pushed back the premiere from June 1 to June 29. The network didn't say why, but I assume it has something to do with embarrassment. [NBC]

... It's never too early to start developing shows for the next next season, right? ABC is moving forward on a TV adaptation of the book My Formerly Hot Life, a memoir about a woman who goes through the ups and downs of dating in her post-early-20s life. Kind of like almost every show ABC is putting out this year. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Lost's Rebecca Mader will make a guest appearance on Covert Affairs, continuing to show-hop as she racks up guest appearance credits. She'll play a German flight attendant who helps out Auggie. [TV Line]
