Is a Danity Kane reunion in the works? The rumor mill has been all abuzz about the return of the platinum girl group. Four out of five members—Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, and Aundrea Fimbres (D. Woods was absent)—were photographed having lunch together in May and DanityKane.com has been relaunched with a countdown leading up to tomorrow’s MTV VMAs. Dawn hinted at things to come during an exclusive interview with Rap-Up TV.
“The countdown seems like it’s marking the beginning of the VMAs, doesn’t it? Like the opening of it, doesn’t it?” she said.
The group released two No. 1 albums on Bad Boy Records, but was disbanded by Diddy following the release of 2008’s Welcome to the Dollhouse. Five years later, they were able to put their differences aside and come together again.
“I’m having a blast with having them back in my life,” said Dawn, who is working on her solo album Blackheart. “We’re back at a place where we can speak to each other and hang with each other. It’s been a long time since we just sipped some wine and been like, ‘What up girl?'”
They hashed out their issues during the lunch meeting. “That meeting was five hours of ‘For real, you did that? That was why you did that? Oh, you’re not a bitch. I hated you,'” said Dawn. “It was beautiful to find out that we were stupid in thinking the things that we thought.”
She was surprised to see all the positive reaction to their reunion. “I don’t know how people could even remember us, let alone even care enough to be that excited and none of it was negative.”
So is the group, who was brought together on MTV’s “Making the Band 3,” plotting another reality show? “I guess you’ll have to wait and see,” teased Dawn.
