Former “X Factor” judge Cheryl Cole has posted her first messages on her official Twitter account on the same day that a photo of her on the movie set of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” also surfaced on Twitter.
As previously reported, Cole has a cameo role as a talent-show judge in the comedy film. Her character in the movie will reportedly reject a contestant played by Cameron Diaz. Other stars in the film’s large ensemble cast include Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Dennis Quaid and Elizabeth Banks.
Cole opened her Twitter account in July 2011, but she did not post her first messages until August 30, when she tweeted:
“It’s me CC! WHERE MY SOLDIERS AT…….?!!! I can’t believe what my fingers are doing but yes I’m tweeting :-s so here goes…X.”
“Happy birthday Cameron, you sexy beeeyyaatchh…X.”
Diaz turned 39 years old on August 30, 2011.
On August 31, Cole followed up the messages with these tweets:
“There is NOTHING better than the smell of fresh coffee in the morning.. Esp when your call time is 4.30am ”
“That’s not even the morning. That’s the middle of the night…”
“Btw I’m gutted I can’t use my little yellow men faces on here. They help me express what I’m saying…”
Meanwhile, Taboo (of the Black Eyed Peas) posted on his official Twitter account the aforementioned photo of him, Cole and choreographer Tyce Diorio (of “So You Think You Can Dance” fame) portraying talent-show judges on the set of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” Although there have been paparazzi photos of Cole on the set of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” this is the first photo to surface that shows her posed in character while working on the movie.
“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” is Cole’s first job since she was notoriously fired from “The X Factor” U.S. in May 2011, after she did just four audition dates with the show. “The X Factor” executive producer Simon Cowell (who is also a judge on “The X Factor” U.S.) has given several interviews saying that Cole was removed from the show as part of a botched plan to have her return to “The X Factor” U.K. as a judge (with a salary raise), which was an offer that Cole ultimately refused.
Nicole Scherzinger replaced Cole on “The X Factor” U.S., and Tulisa Contostavlos of the British hip-hop group N-Dubz replaced Cole on “The X Factor” U.K.
Cole has yet to publicly tell her side of the story about her dismissal from “The X Factor” U.S., and Cowell has told the media that Cole has rejected his attempts to communicate with her since she parted ways with “The X Factor.”
