D. Woods wants in on the Danity Kane reunion. One-fifth of the platinum group is claiming that she was excluded from the girls’ comeback concert.
Woods was missing when the other four members, Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, and Aundrea Fimbres, took the stage at L.A.’s House of Blues earlier this month.
The 29-year old singer is now telling TMZ that she would have loved to perform during Danity Kane’s first show in five years, but didn’t get an invite.
She also claims that she tried to reunite the group in the past, but was met with resistance. The first time she heard about DK’s reunion plans was through TMZ in May.
She’s unsure why the girls didn’t include her, but is happy that they’re having success with “the sound that I helped them create.”
This is in sharp contrast to what she previously said. In a Us Weekly in August, she explained her not to return and wished the other members well. to
“Much love to the ladies of DK!! They have decided to reunite and I, like our amazing fans, will be cheering them on,” said Woods.
She opted out of the reunion to focus on her solo career. “For the past couple of years, myself and the other DK members have been on other 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,” she explained.
The other members claim that Woods received an invite for the reunion, but passed. “We asked who wanted to be here and those who wanted to show up, showed up,” Dawn told Rap-Up TV. “It’s nothing more than that. We want people to see this for what it is and know that this is Danity Kane.”
The foursome are moving ahead with plans to release a new album in 2014. They are close to signing a new record deal and premiered a new song called “All in a Day’s Work” at their House of Blues show.
