Has Aubrey O'Day been booted from Danity Kane?
booted out of Sean 'Diddy' Combs' contrived pop group.
The internet has been alight for some time with whispers about Aubrey's supposed departure from the all girl group, and those rumours were finally confirmed when the fourth season finale of making the band aired in the US.
The multi-platinum selling group was created in season three of 'Making The Band', a show created by Diddy in a bid to find and create the next super group. First drawing attention as a contestant with ambition, drive, and unwavering vigor to make the final cut, and later as the outspoken leader of the group not afraid to butt heads with the formidable Combs, Aubrey has been regarded as the 'breakout star' since Danity Kane's conception. She has done an admirable job of polarizing viewers and propelling ratings into the stratosphere and indeed, hardly a week goes by that Aubrey doesn't attract attention from the paps, therefore making her the least likely to fall into the post reality show abyss by default.
Perez Hilton might dub her a 'skankster' and others call her the Tara Reid of 2008, but there is no doubting that the controversial Miss Aubrey, with her penchant for itty bitty clobber, rumour mongering and mens-mag style editorials, has helped focused the media lens squarely on Danity Kane, arguably helping the girls secure two top rating albums and invaluable publicity and column inches.
But Aubrey doesn't seem to be too concerned that she is out of the group that put her on the map. In fact, politics seems to be at the forefront of her concern and she has used the attention to support Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
In a statement she says, "I didn't watch the finale, so I have no idea what story was told. The only comment I can make is... I wish that the world would focus more on the presidential election, the debates, the issues our country is facing, and the fact that if we don't vote for Obama our country will suffer beyond repair."
So now she is gone, how will the group fare? Speculation continues that Aubrey's axing was a ratings ploy and maybe she really isn't out for good, but the question remains, if indeed Aubrey has been kicked to the curb, will Danity Kane be naught but a frothy memory a few short months after their career climax?
Diddy being the astute business man that he is, we're sure there must be an extra surprise up his sleeve, giving viewers the drama they love to drool over.
Either way, where pretty sure Aubrey is far from her expiring her O'Day in the sun!
