Danity Kane Are Reuniting, Probably
Highly relevant defunct girl group Danity Kane have unofficially unveiled their upcoming reunion via some grainy paparazzi footage and a mostly-dubious TMZ item, but let’s just go with it because we all need a beacon of hope to cling to in these dark, dark days. Four of the five members — Aubrey O’Day, Dawn Richard, Shannon Bex and Aundrea Fimbres — were spotted having lunch with their new manager in Los Angeles yesterday (D. Woods was too busy, or hates everyone, or whatever), and TMZ claims that “they plan to record and tour.”
But according to reports, Diddy, who created the girl group on Making the Band 3 and then collapsed it in 2009, is not involved in the group at all — and when asked about him, Aubrey O’Day quipped, “Who’s that?” Never change, Aubrey.
The girls have worked on solo projects since the girls parted ways in 2009, most notably O’Day, whose reality series All About Aubrey followed her work as an artist, and Richard, whose self-released Goldenheart LP was one of my early favorites this year; if they’ve decided to work together again, it’s likely that some of the egos have been put aside in service of the project.
I literally need several first-aid kits.
