We finally have the answer as to why Nicole Scherzinger was always singing and never lettin’ anyone else shine during the Pussycat Dolls’ era (ha, we’re acting like it was decades ago). The multi-plainum selling group were so successful that Nicole thought she was better than everyone else, seeing that she was singing most of the songs on every single track anyway. One flop album later and she rejoins the group in 2008 for another platinum-selling album before the group decide to ditch her ass for her rude behavior.
According to Carmit Bahar, the red-haired girl who ditched Nicole and the band in 2008 after Scherzinger rejoined, says that the lead singer was always jealous of the rest of the girls. She envied Ashley Roberts’ long, blonde hair and constantly wished she had blue eyes like her. Carmit says that they always told Nicole that she was beautiful but she didn’t see it in herself, that’s why she would compare herself to other girls and make them feel like a piece of crap.
“Nicole was jealous of Ashley. She felt threatened by her – like people would prefer her because of the way she looked,” Bachar told The Sun. “Ashley had that iconic American thing going on – blonde hair, blue eyes. It was the look Nicole seemed to want but could never have.”
“No-one could understand why Nicole was so jealous. She was an exotic beauty with a look that most girls would kill for. But she always had a thing about blonde girls. Ashley knew that Nicole was jealous of her and it made her feel uncomfortable. It was a hideous undertone in the group.”
Carmit went on to explain how life changed after the dolls fell apart, thanks to Nicole who had already planned her forthcoming album and made connection with Simon Cowell to land a role on X Factor USA at the time.
“After the Dolls fell apart, Ashley was in tears. It was a tough time for everyone in the band. But with Ashley being the way she is, it was particularly hard on her.”
So, if you had hoped for a PCD reunion… dream on!
