Curtain Call for Danity Kane

Danity Kane

The final chapter in the Danity Kane saga came to an end on Thursday.

On part one of the season finale of MTV’s “Making the Band 4,” Diddy announced that he was officially dismantling the platinum girl group once and for all. Aundrea Fimbres and Dawn Richard were the only two members present to hear the news. The Bad Boy CEO released Aundrea, Aubrey O’Day, D. Woods, and Shannon Bex from their contracts, leaving Dawn as the only remaining member signed to the label.

“You’re a great person, you’re a great girl, but if I did another group, I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing a group with you,” the music impresario told Aundrea. “I’ve given a lot of thought and I’m gonna let you out your contract too.”

While Aundrea was sent her walking papers, Dawn was spared. “As far as for you Dawn, I still want to make music with you, I still want you to be signed to the label, and if I decide to put back together Danity Kane, then you’ll be the only member that’d still be there.”

“This isn’t a decision I wanted to make,” he told the girls. “To be honest, ya’ll girls made this decision for me.”

Aundrea was filled with emotion as she shared her parting words. “We worked really, really hard to be where we are and for it to end the way that it did, sucks,” she said. “But I can’t be mad. I’ve done the things that I came here to do.”

The 25-year-old California native emotionally reflected on her memories in the chart-topping group. “I’m connected to them for the rest of my life because of something we accomplished together. Danity Kane will always be D, Aubrey, Shannon, Dawn, and me.”

Is this Danity Kane’s last hurrah or will they reunite on part two of the live season finale next Thursday?

    Wait but at the end of the episode did u see that Diddy said there will be a Big suprise at next weeks live season finale. He said “Dont be suprised if all 5 members of Danity Kane are there and performing.” So does this mean they worked shit out? i still have a feeling that something good is gonna come out of this.

    diddy or as i refer to him is douche made a big mistake of firing audrea. she was a stand out group jember since the begining. i really hope this is a publicity stunt. she always makes good groups waits months between single releases. i think he likes the drama and is laughing all tthe way to the bank. remember da band, dream, now dk. i wouldnt be so upset if he would have made audrea signed and made her solo. i do think that theu should try and shop the other labels..a major one like jive or sony. dont know if they could keep the dk name but then again, if i remember correctly didnt dawn come up with the name. i hope and pray that this is a joke…dk for life..

    Diddy just says shit like that so you could watch his show next week. We know that Aubrey and D. Woods won’t probably be there and SHannon doesn’t want to be there so it will probably be Drea and Dawn. But good look to all of them, they were strong as group in my eyes, but Diddy had to go and do his thing like always.

    Like Dawn, and Aundrea I was hoping Diddy could come up with an idea that they could possibly get back together. I knew he would keep Dawn, but I feel bad for Aundrea this girl dealt with all those problems, hell all of them did. The worst part about it is that they had many fans. I wish them the best though :-(

    if yall remember diddy was the one who ruined danity kane and i know he kickin himself in the ass cause they were his only money makers. they were on the rocks but they werent breaking up until diddy’s dumb ass kicked aubrey and d.woods out of the group and it just went DOWN hill from there. all the blame is on diddy. he fucked with his money and the only thing out of the bad boy camp that was relevant.

    Diddy messed up a good thing. Its def. gonna hurt him in the long run because DAY 26 only have “26 days” till their group is disbanded, they just don’t know.

    As for Aundrea, i think she knows whats going on from the get-go…example: Dawn going on private meeting with Diddy alone, while the tother member don’t know. I would’ve been suspicious already. As for dawn, i love her voice but i it would be interessting to see how she does “solo” i think she would do well if Diddy doesn’t screw her over. If aundrea goes solo, i think she SOAR TO THE HIGHEST than Dawn..because she has the voice, look, and stage swagger…but i don’t think she should be signed be BAD BOY…

    And why is Donnie still signed..his career was over before it began.

  10. ugh

    for real i teared up watching aundrea talk about her life as an artist. she was so sincere and poured her heart into it and for it to end this was is such a shame. these ladies had soo much potential and were ultimately the only girl group holding it down who could sing. cause PCD is really just one girl and 5 dancing whores.

    u know what they could work shit out if Diddy would let them life is too short and the anticipation would be crazy if they got back together to make another album. I know for sure the album would sell.

    Fuck Diddy! DK was good but he gets off on playing God. If he didn’t release me from my contract I’d asked to me let out ’cause no one can successed under the thumb of a megalomaniac. I mean what’s he got going for him? Day 26 ain’t ever crossing over to make them big bucks and Donnie Klang has no personality. So he pretty much just took apart the one thing he had going for him.

    I feel like if Danity Kane was signed to any other label, they would still be a group right now. It really does suck because they could have been the biggest female group of all time, they had everything to make that happen.

    Even though i love Shannon, a part of me does blame her for the ultimate dismantling. If she wasn’t stubborn and went ahead with just the three of them then they would still be a group. I think a group with just Shannon, Dawn and Aundrea would work. They were actually my three favorites out of the group, Shannon was the best dancer and Aundrea and Dawn were the best vocalists.

    I have a feeling that this isn’t the end of them though. If Aubrey came back down to earth and the rest of the them stopped being stubborn then a reunion could easily happen.

    This might post twice because it didn’t go through the first time.

    I feel like if Danity Kane were signed to any other label then none of this happened. Let’s face it, Diddy can not properly promote anybody but himself.

    A part of me does blame Shannon for the ultimate dismantling of the group though. I do understand how she felt about Danity Kane not being Danity Kane unless it is the five of them but there are also millions of fans to think about. A group with just Shannon, Aundrea and Dawn could have easily worked. They were my three favorites too. Shannon was by far, the best dancer and Dawn and Aundrea were the best vocalists. I don’t know if i’ll ever support a solo project from her after that.

    I would also like to add that i couldn’t be happier that Diddy let Aundrea out of her contract because Aundrea deserves a more credible and deserving label. I really hope she signs with a label like Jive or something and blows up.

    Diddy should just pack it up and go, and let someone else manage bad boy. He used to be hot, but now he’s just lame. He’s such a diva, thinking that he’s God’s gift to the music industry when almost every act (except danity kane) he’s signed post-millenium has failed or isn’t really selling. I really don’t think Day 26 or Donnie will last on that label. Their days are numbered, cause the biggest diva of them all will screw it up somehow. I wish Dawn good luck with her solo career but I wouldn’t keep my hopes up with diddy in the mix.
