Poor Thang: RihRih’s British TV Show “Styled To Rock” Shut Down Due To Janky Ratings

- By Bossip Staff

Has RihRih’s style show hit the skids? It’s looking like at least some of the singers checks have indeed stopped coming in.

According to UK Daily Mail reports:

It was meant to be her big TV break, but Rihanna’s television debut has been axed following poor ratings – amid claims that the production was a ‘nightmare’.

The singer, 24, was the star and executive producer on Sky Living Show Styled To Rock, where wannabe designers battled it out to make a festival outfit for their idol.

However, she only made three appearances on the program – including the finale, where she picked up the winning outfit.

But despite the fact that Rihanna called on friends including Cheryl Cole, Kanye West and Katy Perry to guest star, Styled to Rock has been scrapped after ratings fell to below 79,000.

However, the show – presented by fashion designer Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud – has been sold to the US Style Network without Rihanna on board.

A TV source told MailOnline: ‘Scheduling all these pop stars with our filming schedule was a nightmare.

Rihanna’s diary was manic, and to be honest, after it struggled for viewers it was always going to be difficult to get her to agree to do another series.

During filming, Rihanna sparked concern for her health when she scrapped a 10-week trip to the UK for work – forcing a planned appearance on the program to be rescheduled.

But she angrily dismissed claims that her health was affected by constant partying and said she was visiting her family.

However, just weeks later she tweeted pictures of herself hooked up to an IV.

Last November she cancelled a concert in Sweden when she was taken to hospital and put on a drip. Doctors put her weakness down to a bad case of flu.

The Umbrella star’s then enraged Saturday Night Live bosses by missing a rehearsal due to illness and tiredness.

A Sky Living spokeswoman said: ‘It is far too early to make a decision if the show would return for a second series.

‘After every big launch, we undertake extensive research with our customers, and will make a decision when we evaluate the results.’

Well now we see why she’s trying to rip people off make a little extra cash on deluxe editions of her new album!
