It appears Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin‘s promise of new faces in the group is holding true, with Twitter posts by member Melody Thornton indicating that she has been axed from the five-piece. The 23 year old’s telling Tweets have been posted over the last two days. Here’s what Thornton said:
Not sure yet what my n.y’s resolution is but I know I wanna let go of the ppl who wanna let go of me! So ill start there. Sad

With all-signs pointing to Ms. Melody being ousted (unsurprising considering her being so vocal about her talents not being utilised), I must say this sure looks to be a blessing more so than anything for the ridiculously talented VOCALIST.
As the sales of the ladies last LP ‘Doll Domination’ show, Robin Antin’s stubborn insistence on keeping the focus exclusively on Nicole has made for PCD to be come a sinking ship. With their 3rd album looking to rehash the same formula, if ever there was a time for Melody to spread her wings and get her shine, it’s now! I mean Melody just standing there looking pretty and singing the odd ‘ohhh’ and ‘ahhh’ never did sit well with me, especially considering she has a better voice than the chick out front!!! (IMO). In any case, we wish her much success – she certainly deserves it.
