Last night (against my better judgement) I watched the “‘nation’s sweetheart” / fraud Cheryl Cole pour her heart out to Piers Morgan.
I’ve always respected Piers Morgan but he let himself down last night. It was made clear from the offset that Piers thinks the sun shines out of Cheryl’s backside, so this interview was just set up to help preserve Saint Cheryl’s reputation post Gamugate. Plus she’s about to release a new single.
Cheryl bawled while discussing her harrowing battle with FLU. Oops… sorry.. I mean “MALARIA”, and then bawled some more when the subject switched to the breakdown of her marriage to footballer Ashley Cole.
(I look forward to hearing what Ashley Cole has to say. I hope that interview comes soon.)
I suspect the lame fan club sitting in the audience who “ooooed” and “awwwed” throughout the interview also “wept” with “poor” Cheryl during those “harrowing” segments.
Also as predicted there was no mention of Sophie Amogbokpa, the nightclub toilet attendant who Cheryl beat up and “allegedly” racially abused back in 2003.
Piers who used to be Editor-In-Chief of The Daily Mirror and is still a journalist at heart should be ashamed of himself for neglecting to mention that incident, because it’s a part of Cheryl’s life story and almost derailed the Girls Aloud train.
I have to hand it to Cheryl’s PR team. They continue to do a brilliant job of ensuring that the nation’s sweetheart’s halo still shines bright.
Give yourselves a pat on the back guys!
