Danity Kane Are Over…
Dawn Richard Says
‘It’s devastating for me,’ Richard says of the ‘Making the Band’ group’s dissolution.
When “Making the Band” returns on February 12, fans already know two former members will be missing: Aubrey O’Day and D. Woods, who were dismissed from the group by Diddy last season. But they’ll probably be surprised that Shannon Bex isn’t there either, which apparently means the end of the band.
“As of right now, [Danity Kane doesn’t exist],” Dawn Richard told MTV News on Wednesday (January 28). “It’s devastating for me.”
“You’ll see me and Drea [Aundrea Fimbres] try and pick up the pieces on our own [on this season’s show] — pieces that we didn’t even make,” she continued. “We didn’t even break it and we’re trying to sweep it up ourselves. Puff invited all the girls to come back on this season and they chose not to. Only two of us showed up. That’s fine if that’s the choice.
“It changes [our situation] completely,” she said. “We have fans out there who love Danity Kane. We love Danity Kane. It’s hard. We’re sitting here trying to make sense of it now. It’s hard. We’re put in this position that we didn’t ask to be in and we’re being told to fix it.”
Richard said that Bex apparently made the decision not to show up for the season on her own.
“I don’t know why [Bex left]. I think she’s just happy. I don’t want to even try to answer it ’cause that’s not fair to her. I haven’t [spoken to her] but I heard she’s doing well with her husband and she got a house. I love her, but I don’t know.”
“I’m so sad about this news, I was a fan of the group. I really thought they would go far.”
