Danity Kane Stars End Feud

Published: Sunday 11th Mar 2012 by Sam

With fans still reeling from Diddy‘s dismantling of Danity Kane four years ago, it’s taken two of the group’s members that exact amount of time to repair their “damaged” friendship.

Indeed, the age old adage of timing healing all wounds has rung true for Aubrey O’Day and Dawn Richard.

For after not speaking since the Pop outfit’s dramatic demise, the pair have this week reunited.

Details after the jump…

Longtime That Grape Juice readers will recall our last interview with O’Day, who is currently starring on Celebrity Apprentice.

During the candid chat, the ‘Automatic’ singer revealed that despite her best efforts to reach out to Richard, the latter would not return her calls.

Fast forward a year and the landscape is altogether different.

Taking to Twitter, O’Day announced:

“Just got off phone w my DK sis @DawnRichard! been since the split that we spoke & neither of us have changed. happy she’s back n my life!”


Kudos to the ladies for letting the past be past.

I’m sure I speak for many when wondering aloud if this could spell a Danity Kane reunion of some sort.

The business side of the equation would make that difficult, due to Diddy and Bad Boy owning the legal rights to the group’s name, back-catalogue, and the like. And given the public nature of their disbanding (D.Woods and O’Day being “fired”), it’s doubtful  the ladies would be rushing back to the hand that made them, only to rip them apart.

That said, stranger things have happened. And, with each of their solo projects being either non-existant or moving at snail-pace, a DK reunion may serve as just the platform to thrust the talented clan back into mainstream consciousness.

They were after all one ball of undeniable fierce

Do you want a Danity Kane reunion?

    Of couuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurse!

    I respect Diddy for what his accomplishment (he proved America could appreciate and support a girls band a la Spice Girls) but I always thought Danity Kane should have flipped him the bird and find another producer like the Spice Girls did before finding Simon Fuller. Oh well.

    LOVED DK!!!

  4. Tr March 11, 2012

    Reunion? Yes, of sorts!! Not even a full-fledged conjoinment, but a coming back together for old time’s sake would be in order. Also, it’s eerily ironic how Dawn decided to ‘bury the hatchet’ right after she was relieved from her contract(dismissed). Hmmmm…may want a few pointers on surviving ‘post-bad boy’, I gather!!

  5. Galuda March 11, 2012

    How convenient just as she got “released” from Bad Boy and is now label less…

    This is the best news I have heard in wow… quite sometime. I would love for DK to reunite seeing as to how they are my fav girl group. But lets not jump to any conclusions. remember that is only 2 out of 5 members. we need to other 3 to be on board. Im glad they made up.

    what diddy the devil #1 think about all this?
    good for them

    Umm….. DAWN owns the rights to the “Danity Kane” brand; which is why she was able to put out the comic books. She came up with the name before the group even started. So the chance of them ever getting together again, is really up to her. However, I doubt that’s happening any time soon. Let’s just be happy they ironed out their PERSONAL differences for now.

    Destiny’s Child is the best girl group of my my time. Danity Kane didn’t stand a chance.

  12. Angel987 (BEYONCÉ STAN) March 11, 2012

    Danity Kane was my SHITTT!!!

    Loved them & their albums :’)

  13. unknown March 11, 2012

    Dawn mention this sometime ago that she has legal rights over the Danity Kane and not Bad Boy or Diddy and may I add Dawn already has a new label and a EP coming out

    on the 27 of March so no way is this some plan to get in touch Aubrey because of failed career. When Dawn was always ask about communicating with Aubrey she said “she was busy” and which she was at the time with recording and touring, but she never said she wouldn’t speak with the girl despite what may have happened between the two.

  14. wrong info.. March 11, 2012

    That video shows that Aubrey was the star of that group she’s the only one who got a crowd reaction.anyway how ironic Dawn wants to answer/return her phone calls after
    being dropped. Karma will always get you.

  15. JazThatBoi March 11, 2012

    It was soo funny how Dawn asked “How many of yall out there damaged? “….lol…just funny to me

  16. ChocoBrown March 11, 2012

    DK would eat the current charts and the dooor for a female group of their ability is WAY open.

    Would love it

  17. Olly Murrs March 11, 2012

    I’m glad. This time was more about Dawn admitting her part in “the reality of Danity Kane” swallowing her pride, forgiving and believing the girls were ready to forgive.

    But Aubrey is about to win CA and launch her solo career and D Woods was over Danity Kane the day Diddy announced she made the group so you can keep holding for that reunion.

  18. Oh please!!!!!!!!! March 11, 2012

    Good for them

    Listen! Dawn & Aubrey (DawBrey) ARE Danity Kane and those throwing the words “karma” and “reunion” around can have several.
    Dawns misguided ass messed up. Simple! In fact she IS a little messed up. She needs to admit (privately) to the other four girls that she was and still is a shady MF after repenting for dancing with the Diddy otherwise this reconciliation will be brief and only in cyberspace.

  20. Oh please!!!!!!!!! March 11, 2012

    @Davide Laffe (NYC Nightlife Photographer)

    A trio? O_O! Aubrey & Dawns tweets sounded more like “Yeah, so. That was interesting…….” and D Woods & Dawn? I bet D would eat Diddys toe nails and his poop before she sat down with Dawn.

    Look Shannon is working on her band and Drea is touring the world with her tribute band. They are content and Aubrey is the next Kim K but with serious talent. Let them live Dawn is the only one who lives music so let her keep pushing with that, it might pop off one day.

  21. Onyx March 11, 2012

    Damaged Damaged Damaged

  22. Aunt Jackie March 11, 2012

    I would LIVE and DIE for a Danity Kane Reunion. They should have never broken up.

  23. Gummy bear March 11, 2012

    WHOA! THIS F****** SLAYED!! Where are girl groups like this NOW??? THOSE VOCALS and dancing was on POINTTTTTT! HOTNESS

  24. PYTee March 12, 2012

    There can’t be a reunion. We’re all forgetting about the non-factor b**** D. Woods. I always hoped Dawn and Aubrey would reconcile but Dawn and D. Woods? No ma’am that b**** too shady

  25. Jordan March 12, 2012

    Damn, TRL generation (mine) was the best. Kids dont have anything close these days.

    Anyway, at 1:55 on the video, I’m mad at Aubrey pushing Dawn to the side lol. That was funny.

    Danity Kane should definitely run to LA Reid or somebody and get a deal and a hit cause there are virtually no girl groups out anymore

  26. isiah March 12, 2012

    D woods said if they did a reunion they would have to sit down and have a serious conversation about making it work and what they would have to do. They need to heal all personal wounds before jumping into business ventures. I believe all the girls have a special love foreachother. Dawn alsoo need to cal the other 3 girls and talk to them. i love them and dawn is my favorite

  27. BitchPlease March 12, 2012

    I think Aubrey should put out a POP album, Dawn rnb/soul album, and Shannon country album this summer..Than DK should get back together and do an album..but reality of it is they’re better off together than apart and could most likely win being together than apart.

  28. number1k9 March 12, 2012

    When did they drop their first CD, 2006. If they had stayed together an put out 3 minimum group CDs 2012 would have been a perfect time for them to take a break from the group and work on solo projects.

  29. number1k9 March 12, 2012

    …then they would have had some momentum under their belts and fans would have been more excited for solo projects. Cause each of them are having the sort of same struggles to make an impact solo wise liek Nicole Scherzinge, which to no surprise tried for a solo career after 1 PCD album and it failed, and then 2 PCD albums and it currently isn’t working either! And she was clearly the image/face/LEAD singer of PCD. DK didn’t even have 1 obv standout member, NO, not even Dawn!

  30. Jojo March 12, 2012

    Dawn is no longer with diddy now she wants to make up, thats great because now she know once diddy get what he wants-he done with you. Audrey fought back and is doing good.

  31. TheOuyonB March 12, 2012

    I loved DK. Honestly, although these ladies are all trying to move on and do their solo projects, (all but Andrea, who showed up on Aubrey’s show and then left her high and dry), they are strongest as a group. I’m not sure if Diddy owns the name, as the name was made up by Dawn Richard, but I always said they should have left Bad Boy as a group and just remained signed to Atlantic. I believe this would be a huge move for them, as that lane for music groups is WIDE OPEN, with no1 making any progress in a group.

  32. TheOuyonB March 12, 2012

    And one more thing, when Dawn played the group for her own gain, and now her “fairy tale” has come to an end, leaving her without a label and little to no momentum for her solo project, she FINALLY wants to reach out to her former group members, whom she didn’t have the time of day for when she was too busy kissing Diddy’s a$$. Now, she got played again.. Must be hard. She will never make it as a solo artist. Not because she can’t sing, because she can, but because of her character and motives in the past. Bad Karma.

  33. NE-YO*STAN March 12, 2012

    “I’m sure I speak for many when wondering aloud if this could spell a Danity Kane reunion of some sort.”

    YES, that’s the question we’re all dying to have answered. If Day26 can do it, why not DK?

  34. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) March 12, 2012

    I would love a reunion. The only one out of the group that seems to be getting it together is Aubrey, so I’d love to see all the ladies back together being successful again 🙂

  35. Me March 12, 2012

    Puffy let all of them go so of course they can end the feud now..and what happened to the chick in the group who gave up medical school to join the group…At the end of the day Diddy comes through for no one but himself, his mother, and his kids…..everyone else should not trust him at all.

  36. skintightjeans March 12, 2012

    Aubrey is such a hot ass mess.

  37. Danielle March 12, 2012

    It’s about that time!!!!!!!!!!!! I want 2 see all the girls reunite on a reunion special w/o Diddy!

  38. Tiffany March 13, 2012

    Yes…I am to this day, upset they broke up! I hope that they will be able to work together again! DK was the bomb!!!!

  39. antertain March 14, 2012

    I’m glad they spoke but the peace needs to be with ALL of them.

    Andrea showed herself up on Aubrey’s show so there’s a lot of work to do if that unit of DK is to function again together.

    I would like em to work it out and even if it was just 3 i would work with it.

    Aubrey Dawn & D. Woods is enough for me

    Andrea would be a bonus if she get he head right to do it.
    Shannon kept if moving quicker than i could say “goodbye” so not sure she would be on it but they all brought something to the group
