I thought that last week’s episode of Making the Band was the most uncomfortable episode that I’d ever see – this week’s finale blew that ep. out of the water!
I gotta give MTV, Danity Kane, and Diddy props for allowing such raw moments to happen live in front of the camera. With the future of Danity Kane hanging in limbo, the stakes were major – both for the 5 ladies who’d become sisters during their time in the group and the fans who’d invested Tuesday nights tracking the band and hard-earned dollars supporting them.
But it’s official folks: Aubrey and D. Woods are out of Danity Kane…for now.
The girls were swimming in pain as Sway tried to get down to the core of how the group’s remaining members – Dawn, Aundrea, and Shannon – planned on functioning without their two MIA sisters.
Their body language spoke volumes. I mean, the girls did not even wait for the final credits to roll before they darted off the stage. Even when Sway hinted that there would be a new season of Making the Band, the ladies seemed more unsure about the prospects of it happening than enthused about returning.
D. Woods couldn’t make it to share her side of the split, but Aubrey has got guts for days, and instead of apologizing, she spent her camera time spilling out an empowering plea for people faced with adversity to keep their haters at bay.
In fact, here’s a vid of Aubrey’s last words before the show where she even calls Diddy, “Sean”!
I felt uneasy watching Aubrey as Diddy warned her that unless she tames her ego, she’ll end up in a “dark, lonely place”. It was the kind of feeling that I used to get when I’d encounter a friend getting scolded by his mom about while we were playing Sega Genesis. I wanted to shrink and wish the scenario away, but this was indeed the reality of Danity Kane, and closing my eyes wouldn’t change a thing.
Call me naïve, but I’m holding out for a DK reunion. I don’t think that Aubrey has necessarily burned her bridge with Bad Boy? Are you with me?
