Are Girls Aloud reuniting? Kimberley Walsh says it's a possibility
For all those Girls Aloud fans out there, if you miss your favorite girl band, we’ve got some good news for you. The band that gave us songs like ‘The Promise’ and ‘Call the Shots,’ might actually be on track for a reunion.
The band consisted of five talented women -- Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole and Kimberley Walsh, and was formed on ITV’s hit show ‘Popstars: The Rival’ back in 2002. Kimberley broke the news about a probable reunion while speaking to OK! Magazine, Metro reported. While they all are busy with their separate lives, Kimberley mentioned that she would definitely be interested in getting back together with the girls if such an occasion were to arrive.
She said: "We’re kind of all in touch all the time but it’s just one of those that if all the stars align at the same time and everybody feels that it’s what they want to do. Everybody is busy doing their own stuff." She continued: "I adore the girls so if there was something that was going to happen I’d be up for it." She was also extremely open about what her relationship with all the girls looks like now with The Sun, admitting that her ties with Cheryl and Nicola are much closer than her bond with Sarah and Nadine. She also added, "I do still speak to the others, but a bit more like you just check in with people that you work with, I guess. It’s a different chapter in our lives now. We’ve got kids and things move on don’t they?"
While all of the girls are busy with their own lives, they still seem to support each other in times of need. Cheryl's recent breakup with her long-term boyfriend Liam Payne seems like once such occasion. Cheryl and Liam who share a son together recently announced the end to their two-year relationship through similar Twitter messages. Liam tweeted, “Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make. Despite the split, the couple has decided to keep their son, Bear their number one priority. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together."
Former band members Nicola and Kimberley reacted sympathetically to the breakup, and it sure seemed like they are sticking by Cheryl’s side to help her through it all. They both mentioned that Cheryl was doing just fine, so it seems like it was a peaceful breakup after all.
RTE reported that Kimberley told OK! Magazine that Cheryl was “doing great,” but she also added, “but I guess it's just hard isn't it?"When you have a baby your whole being and whole life changes and for her obviously having a relationship in the public eye just makes it even harder and his career obviously takes him out of the country for long periods so it's hard." According to RTE, Kimberley who is also a mother of two told the Sun, "Cheryl's in a really good place and we're just helping each other through. We mother quite similarly, which I think was always likely because we're such close friends." She also opened up a little about how Cheryl balances her work and home.
She said: "The way Cheryl likes to be is: when it's family time, it's family, and when it's work time, it's work, and there's nothing wrong with that. Juggling work and being a mum, she'll find her way just like we all do. It's just the way it is." She added, "She's got so many nieces and nephews, so it's like she's always done this and she's doing really well."
Nicola too spoke up about Cheryl’s breakup when she went onto ‘Loose Women’, and she had some critical things to say about media’s portrayal of the whole occurring. While she did make it clear that Cheryl was doing just fine, she pointed out that the media sure seemed to be misogynistic in the way they handled the presentation of the of the break-up. She said, “[Cheryl]’s OK… I mean, I actually think what’s been interesting this week is to see how the misogyny through the media has played out. There’s been a couple of articles, like, ‘why can’t she hold a man down?’. And it’s just like… why can’t a man hold her down? You know? But she’s good."
Kimberley also teased about Cheryl's new upcoming album that is a collaboration between Cheryl and former bandmate Nicola. She said, "I can't give anything away, but she played me some the other day and it's quite exciting." She added: "Those two always worked well together. They were always more into the writing than the rest of us, and I think they bring out the best in each other."
