Kimberley Walsh: Cheryl Cole has had a life-changing experience
Cheryl Cole's band mate and best buddy Kimberly Walsh thinks the world is underestimating the Geordie singer.
Ever since her very public sacking from X Factor USA in May, Cheryl, 28, has had a bit of a tough time.
But Kimberley, 30, know Chezza is doing just fine.
‘People really don't know Cheryl. Everybody talked about it like it was the most horrific thing, that it was this massive deal, but it wasn't like that for her,' says Kimberley.
‘She's very much: "That's life, some things don't work out and let's move on."
‘It annoys me when people say this was her big American Dream.
'She's not like that. She's very much a person who decides what she's doing there and then without any big premeditated plan.'
Kimberley believes Cheryl's battle with malaria in July was what we really should have been worried about.
‘What she went through when she was seriously ill was a life-changing experience,' Kimberley tells Fabulous.
‘You can't even compare what happened in America to that.'
