London, Aug 2 : Danni Minogue has finally broken her silence over her row with X - Factor co-judge Sharon Osbourne.
The Aussie beauty revealed that Osbourne and Louis Walsh were pretty nasty to her, making their resentment Danni public by claiming that X Factor honcho Simon Cowell had chosen her only for her looks.
"When I arrived at X Factor, Sharon and Louis made it very clear they didn't think I should be there, by the end of the series, Sharon made it public she didn't like me," The Mirror quoted Danni, as saying.
Danni revealed that it was difficult for her to cope with such unpleasant behaviour, as she did not deserve the humiliation.
"It was very hard because I was excited to be on the show and had so much new stuff to learn. It was interesting that they kind of went out of their way to make it as difficult for me as possible," she said.
"I think it forced Simon and I to be better friends as I was getting attacked so much from the other side of the judging panel," she added.
However, Minogue is thrilled that the 'Girls Aloud' popstar Cheryl Cole has replaced Sharon on the judge panel.
"She brings a breath of fresh, young air to the show," Minogue said.
