Danity Kane

Danity Kane said farewell to one of their own last night. Aundrea Fimbres joined Aubrey O’Day, Dawn Richard, and Shannon Bex for their final show as a foursome at the L.A. PRIDE Festival in West Hollywood on Sunday.

“This is actually my last show with Danity Kane,” said Aundrea.

Her groupmates surprised her with a bottle of Patrón and a bouquet of flowers. “We want to send her off only the way a Latin girl should go off, with some motherfuckin’ Patrón,” said Dawn.

“We love you, Drea. We want to give you so much love, so much support for the prospects for your life. You will always be Danity Kane, you will always be the love of our life.”

They shared a group hug onstage while the crowd chanted “Drea!”

The girls wrapped their “DK No Filter Tour” last week. During the kickoff show in San Francisco, Aundrea announced that she was leaving the group to pursue a family.
