Last year, Danity Kane announced their reunion. Aubrey O’Day, Aundrea Fimbres, Shannon Bex and Dawn Richard join together to restore one of the biggest girl groups of the 2000s. This week Danity Kane released a new track called “Bye Baby,” which received lots of critical praise from fans and music critics. Noticeably, one original member is missing from the band’s reunion and track, D.Woods, aka Wanita Denise Woodgett.
In December 2013, Woods did several interviews informing fans of the reasons behind her absence from the band. She told TMZ that the other women didn’t ask her to join it again. Woods claimed she attempted to reunite them before, but they all resisted. She then implied to US weekly that her busy schedule didn’t allow her to commit to Danity Kane.
“For the past couple of years, myself and the other DK members have been working on other projects individually, such as music, film, television, theater and philanthropy and I have recently signed on to several projects that will have me committed for the next year. My latest single “Gold Mine” is now available everywhere,” she told the magazine.
In a Youtube interview on DreaO.com, Woods restates that her busy schedule stopped her from rejoining Danity Kane. Later in the interview, she says that a better deal could allow for her to be part of the group again.
Some Danity Kane fans speculate that Woods’ former band members have some animosity towards her, and her 2009 Interview with BE Entertained Magazine fuel those rumors.
“I was very disappointed by a lot of the things that she did say in the media and her different interviews. People are kind of aware of her comments and then also of course on the show, those comments were definitely going to get back to me. I was really disappointed and I don’t know why she would go that route, “ said Woods about Dawn Richard.
Igniting this possible feud flame even more, O’Day tweeted a statement clearly about Woods, along with a picture of the band without Woods.

To which Woods responded by saying her attorney would be speaking to O’Day and the other members.
Ouch, things clearly aren’t friendly among these former members. This isn’t surprising because in the DreaO interview, Woods hinted that her relationship with the other band members was never really that close.
