Did L'oreal land Cheryl Cole InStyle December's cover?

copywrite InStyle magazine
Well done,  Cheryl Cole.

Okay, I'm cynical but I was surprised when Ms Cheryl Cole landed the December cover of the UK InStyle. Of course she is pretty, thin, well styled but so are a lot. I was curious to find why in my cynicism that she could land a cover when she discussing projects technically means doing. She doesn't have anything really to promote at the time.

Yes, she was or is UK's sweet heart and for a long time the face of UK's X Factor. She was on every single cover of magazine from Vogue to Cosmo. Then came the Simon Cowell fall out over the US X Factor. After that it's being her living and she is still living off that fall out.

Anyway I digress and wonder why she should get the cover. It's an important one - but then magazine covers are planned months in advanced. It's a bit like an accounting budget and they probably didn't Ms Thing was going to throw a hissy fit. However more inportantly was at the intervew was a L'oreal offical.

Least I forget that Ms Cole is contracted to L'oreal or in friendly-speak is a 'spokesperson'. Not sure what Cheryl Cole can tell us about L'oreal that we don't already know when she isn't extactly a hairdresser. Anyway. It's about money. She represents their products. They have sunk ir invested wads of cash (should I say shareholder's wealth to be annoying) to use Ms Cole's image and it needs to pay dividends. Literally to thousands of screaming investors. InStyle is also a commerical venture reliant on advertising. L'oreal has a huge advertising budget to make it that powerful to secure covers for nearly 'has been' or 'irrelevant' celebrities - you have to protect your assets and investment. Times are lean so editors might just have to play ball and advertises can in some cases call the shots. Also Ms Cole is pretty so is isn't that bad. What gives this alleged Instyle-L'oreal-Cole game away. Well Cole is savy enough it mention hair. Something about the large hair or what not. But it's the footnote that gives it away. She is not promoting a movie, or new album but she is promoting and it's there in italics something to do with L'oreal.

Hey who knows the truth but well done Cheryl Cole.

InStyle magazines is now in the shops.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 

Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.

 For the hundredth time in the show Dawn Ro…
