Pusstcat Dolls Drama: Another Doll Speaks

Published: Friday 24th Jul 2009 by Sam
Just when it appeared the fur from the Pussycat Dolls’ public spats had settled, member Kimberley Wyatt has opened up about the internal friction within the group:
NICOLE SCHERZINGER’s domination of the PUSSYCAT DOLLS is still causing tension within the group.
The girlband’s recent single Jai Hoh!, a worldwide smash hit, was billed as “Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger” which reportedly riled particular members.
MELODY THORNTON hit out at Nicole during a recent gig which led to rumours the band, who were a burlesque group before hitting the charts with Don’t Cha in 2005, were set to split.
However, despite playing down break-up fears, Doll KIMBERLY WYATT indicated the band, and their management, aren’t all singing from the same hymn sheet.
Kimberley said: “It’s true, there has always been a lot of focus on Nicole which has been hard to deal with sometimes.
“This group was created with a foundation, they knew exactly what they wanted and they had Nicole as the focus.
“Every video and stage performance that we’ve done, Nicole has been our leader.
“I wasn’t in videos like I wanted and wasn’t seen in the way I was hoping, which has been the same for all the other girls too.”
Kimberley says herself and the rest of the girls – ASHLEY ROBERTS, JESSICA SUTTA and Melody – are not anticipating the attention eventually being shared out.
She added: “I don’t really make any of the decisions, I’m in the group and can voice my opinions to a degree but at the end of the day it is a business and there are a lot of chefs in the kitchen that run the Pussycat Dolls.”
Kimberly is hosting dance workshops in London on July 26/27. Visit www.marksummers.com/kimberly for more information. {Source}
Hardly surprising is the fact there is friction, what is kinda shocking is how it’s being played out so publicly – while they are still together. I feel really bad for Melody, Kimberley and co (basically the one’s that aren’t Nicole), as there seems to be some kind of contractual obligation which binds the group to take on the form it does (Nicole out front and the rest way back). One has to wonder if the Dolls’ dwindling popularity and crappy sales (both of which IMO are attributable the public being fed up with the current dynamic) will cause the group to dissolve before they do it themselves. Either way, things aren’t looking too great for them…
