On the bright side, she doesn’t have to dump her boyfriend, lose weight and get better clothes anymore.  The bad news for British pop star Cheryl Cole is that her intro to American stardom has been put on hold. The producers of X-Factor have dropped Cole from the judging panel.

According to TMZ, the producers claim that Cole’s British accent is too thick for the American audience, and want her to head back to the British version of the show.  There may be more than just the accent behind the firing, rumor has it that Cole and fellow judge, Paula Abdul, do not get along.

Cole is pissed, and may not follow orders to head back to her side of the pond and start filming. According to TMZ’s source Cole is considering cutting her ties with the X-Factor franchise completely.

I guess this means she doesn’t have to lose weight or get more stylish either. Cheryl, they should like you for you, I say put on some sweat pants, go hang out with your boyfriend and eat some ice cream.

Cole’s spot on the judging panel will be filled by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pussycat Dolls[/lastfm] singer, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm].
