She was always painted as the "villain" in the group during their three year hiatus which I always found amusing since Cheryl was the one prancing around trying to crack the states and generally being a fame whore.
Good for Nadine for speaking out and setting the record straight.
It was Nadine who first went to the states, before the three year hiatus. She attempted to crack the US before Cheryl.
Remember how she was supposed to have forgotten her passport as an excuse for not attending the Brits in 2008?
