Did Cheryl Cole just dump Derek Hough so she could upgrade to an A-lister?


I apologize in advance for all of the photos I’m using in this post, but as I was looking up Cheryl Cole pics, there were just so many that I found hilarious. I will maintain – she’s a pretty girl. But she wears a mountain of makeup, she doesn’t know how to dress, and when she’s trying to be “sexy” she looks absolutely ridiculous. Thus, all of the photos.

Anyway, as we were discussing earlier this week, Cheryl is going to try to “happen” in America now that she got a gig on the American version of The X Factor. She’ll be working with Simon Cowell again. And Paula Abdul will be around, acting crazy. Cheryl is already going to be designated “the pretty one” (as opposed to Paula’s “the crazy one”). But Cheryl still needs a little something “extra” to “happen” here. What’s the best way to get attention? Date somebody who already has a built-in fan-base! This theory was already popularized by Lainey, by the way, who suggested that all Cheryl really needed was a decent celebrity boyfriend to “happen”. Unfortunately, Cheryl already has a boyfriend, Dancing With the Stars dancer boy Derek Hough. Unfortunately, Cheryl might have already dumped poor Derek in a quest for MORE FAME, PLS.

DWTS pro Derek Hough will have to find a new partner. His girlfreind Cheryl Cole has dumped him to focus on her sizzling career – and to maybe trade up to a more famous beau, an insider tells Star.

Soon after the Brit babe, 27, landed a flashy gig as a judge on the US version of The X Factor, “Cheryl told Derek it was over,” says the insider. “Breaking up with him was particularly cruel because he stood by her through her divorce last year and her nasty bout of malaria.”

So Derek is hurt and betrayed.

“He can’t help feeling that she used him to get publicity in Hollywood,” says the insider. But Cheryl is already moving on.

“She’s incredibly ambitious – and gorgeous,” the insider says. “I wouldn’t be surprised if she winds up with an A-lister, and soon!”

Hahaha, “He can’t help feeling that she used him to get publicity in Hollywood.” Yes, because simply EVERYBODY knew the random blonde boy that made everyone mutter, “Dude, I think that young man dancing the cha-cha… I think he loves dong.” HE’S SO FAMOUS! As for Cheryl ending up with an A-lister… oh, boy. Jake Gyllenhaal? Bradley Cooper? What? She has a type!

    wasn’t there a blind or something that she was secretly boning simon cowell?
    I never thought derek more than a beard

  2. brin says:

    Well if she wants an A-lister she better start dressing to attract one.
    She is pretty and I don’t get why she needs to spackle on the make-up.

  3. DGO says:

    Yeah, I believe the rumours that she’s really dating Cowell and the Derek Hough story was planted as a detraction. Those Hough kids sure have a monopoly on the beard front.

  4. Quest says:

    Wasn’t he dating Shannon Elizabeth,who was also his dance partner at one point in time?

    Guess he has a type ah mean a beard…lol

  5. Hautie says:

    Dang look how skinny Paula has gotten! Her arms are so tiny.

    Oh and this Cheryl Cole chick.

    Good luck on getting famous.

    It required Victoria Beckham a decade & a lot of cash. And she still is not a big deal here. But she finally has name recognition in the US.

    But wouldn’t it be funny if Cheryl Cole got the cover of Vogue?!

  6. Jazz says:

    Somebody please make this insufferable woman go away!

  7. tanya says:

    Girlfriend can’t dress…

  8. Roma says:

    I look at Cheryl Cole and all I think is Marie Osmond. Maybe that’s just me.

  9. carrie says:


  10. HotLatino says:

    I don’t think she wears too much make up, she’s pretty, I want her to happen in America.

  11. Elizabeth says:

    @ Taynya – ITA

    That last photo looks like an outfit only a kindergarten class would love.

  12. Kasey says:

    @Elizabeth- HAHAHAHAHA! I find your comment incredibly amusing and maybe spot on(?) because…..

    I was thinking, “oooooh! so many colors I LOVE it! I would SO rock something like that!” I’ve always loved bright colors and fun stuff. However, I didn’t become so bold/intentional about it until about the past 2 years ………..during which I’ve taught only Kindergarten. They always tell me how pretty/BUtiful I look!

    So perhaps you’re right. I’m not sure if it’s because I teach Kindergarten though, if its because I live overseas and stand out anyway OR if I’m just older and feel more confident and fearless about rocking what I like in colors that look good on me! Maybe all of the above.

  13. VV says:

    What the “F” with those pants? I actually don’t mind the colors but the orange ruffles, the length and cut of those pants and that hair ugh.

    Good luck lady.

  14. flourpot says:

    I’m totally loving the orange/purple/blue she’s got going on. Hugs to ya, Elizabeth, but one main color gets boring. Would you dye your hair one main color? Wear makeup that was all one color? Variety. Gotta love it. <3

  15. MikeyAngel says:

    Elizabeth, don’t insult kindergarteners like that! Most have better taste than that!

  16. MJ says:

    With the big hair, she kind of looks like a young Shania Twain.

  17. searching4grace says:

    She totally missed her calling in the 80′s.

  18. Crash2GO2 says:

    She really does trowel it on, doesn’t she? And the big hair… oof. She doesn’t need it, her features are pretty and her coloring is great. Strange.

  19. hottathanholywatta says:

    someone get her a stylist, the pants do not fit her

  20. Eileen says:

    @mikeyAngel & Elizabeth: Mikey took the words right out of my mouth-my son is in kindergarten and he dresses himself pretty kickass…if I do say so myself. lol
    She dresses like she’s color blind or playing dress up with mommy’s clothes. yikes.

  21. The Truth Fairy says:

    She looks so GENERIC

  22. georgiagrl says:

    Who cares? She’s British.

  23. Ria says:

    DO slam her more. hate famehos. all these british skanks are coming to get us. Simon Cowell is exporting Jedward here too so beware, America. and be ready to strike back. you better be ready.

  24. Raz says:

    The British tabloids don’t really believe they’re dating at this point. She’s denied it too, so I’m not exactly sure what’s going on. They’ve admitted they’re ‘best friends’.

    Also how can you say she has a type when her husband was a black footballer who messed her around and her current boyfriend (if we assume he is) is a blonde dancer who seems to follow her around like a puppy dog? The two men we know her with and they’re completely different!!

  25. Victoria says:

    OMG 1980 called……..er yeah..

    Wally and the Beard.

  26. Victoria says:

    Paint by numbers called…. ha ha ha..

  27. Maritza says:

    Aww, I love Derek Hough! I don’t think he is gay, I can’t wait for him to go back to DWTS! As for Cheryl, it’s her loss. I wish Simon an Paula were a couple, they make more sense to me.

  28. 4Real says:

    SOMEBODY likes to dress in the dark?!

  29. Joe's Mom says:

    @Maritza – I agree with the first part of what you said — “Aww, I love Derek Hough! I don’t think he is gay, I can’t wait for him to go back to DWTS! As for Cheryl, it’s her loss.” I really like Derek Hough, and I think he’s a lot more well-known than Kaiser realizes.

  30. Amanda G says:

    Derek Hough is straight? Wha?

  31. Geordie says:

    They were never dating, Cheryl denied it many times and the Tabloids just wanted a transatlantic romance story.
    In fact it is believed she and her ex-husband are sneaking around, sneaking because she became such a “woman-betrayed” symbol in Briton that she couldn’t easily forgive him and get back together, or her career would be destroyed – so they sneak, and neither have moved on to other people.

  32. Lia says:

    She looks like a cross between Shania Twain and anybody’s mother. She looks like she could be Hough’s mother. Ugh. Keep it in Britain, honey…..

  33. duh says:

    Derek is not gay.

    Just because he is a good-looking dancer who cares about his appearance doesn’t make him gay.

    Not all straight men are Neanderthals.

    He even said in one interview that he didn’t want to dance at first (his mother made him to dance when he was a little boy) but he changed his mind when he found out that there are some cute girls taking the lessons too. Since then he dated several women. Those people who claim he’s gay are just jealous of his talent and looks.

  34. janna says:

    ms. cole has extremely ugly legs…..they look like they’re made out of rubber..

  35. Kim says:

    I dont think she will be an A lister. She is a novelty act leftover from a girl group who has parlayed that into a decent career in England but she wont get widespread fame in America.

    What English woman (who doesnt act in movies) has achieved a list status in America? none. Even Posh, who i love, couldnt land an acting gig in America and she is married to Becks for goodness sake!

  36. Anna says:

    Her knees look weirrd.

  37. kayls says:

    Those pants are loooong!

    And something must be wrong with me; I think Derek is sexy : (

  38. Zvonk says:

    OK, which one of you bitches chopped off her feet in that last pic? No wonder she looks like she’s about to topple over.

  39. Squasher says:

    Derek is one ugly dude. Neatness doesn’t equate to beauty. He’s not cute AT ALL. By the way, isn’t she still shagging Ashley?

  40. annie says:

    I love Derek and have a hard time believing that he is gay.

  41. Julie says:

    Very funny zvonk! It does feel good to bring out the claws lol !

  42. duh says:

    @ Squasher: just because YOU don’t like him, don’t say he’s ugly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think (and many girls will agree with me) that he’s very handsome. He has a very beautiful face and sexy body. He also knows how to move with grace.

  43. Ja says:

    How is this going to work? She needs an A lister but no A lister needs her. Is she going to pay someone? Any really respected A lister would have to madly fall in love with her otherwise I just don’t see this happening. Anyone has any better guess? PS: Half of the people over in the USA don’t understand her accent anyway, A lister or non lister, right?

  44. Ja says:

    @Kim: Mrs. Beckham may be a talented house-wife to Mr. Beckham but that doesn’t entitle her to score any movie roles. I’m glad to see that money or a moniker can’t buy everything. At least not in this case! PS: your suggestion is just daft.

  45. Michele says:

    Nothing is wrong with you Kayls, I think Derik is sexy too! Its a shame, he seems to care about her a lot.

  46. pauline says:

    I don’t think Derik’s gay, I think he’s a Mormon.
    From what I read, they were not dating, they were just friends. Derik looked after her when she went through a hard time with her ex, that’s all.
