Kelly Rowland: Yes, I'm A Workaholic

Posted: Updated:

Working on "The X Factor" means having to put up with Simon Cowell and the barbs he tosses in the direction of the three female judges joining him on the panel this season:  Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, and the Grammy Award-winning artist, Kelly Rowland.

And that means sticking together and giving it right back to Simon.

"Oh, we don't play on that panel," Kelly told Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A. "If Simon picks on one of us, he has to deal with all of us.  We give him h-e-double-hockeysticks."

But the onscreen taunts by Simon hide the respect he has for Kelly, and his wish to have her working with him on "The X Factor," first in Great Britain and now, here in the U.S.

"Simon asked me to be a part of the panel over there, and I had a really great time.  And the U.K. showed so much love and had so much talent," Kelly said.  "And when he asked me to do the U.S., I was more than thrilled."
