Aubrey O’Day’s image gets her booted from Danity Kane

Aubrey O’Day achieved fame on Diddy’s MTV reality show Making the Band, as the lead singer of girl group Danity Kane. O’Day has since done all she can to make a name for herself as a tramp. As we previously reported, Aubrey recently granted an interview to Complex magazine, and posed for some questionably hygenic pictures for the write up. Diddy has since decided that Aubrey isn’t what the mogul ordered.

Danity Kane members Aubrey O’Day and D. Woods got the boot on Tuesday night’s live season three finale of Making the Band.

“Puff did not like [O’Day’s] image…where her image was going for the group,” Dawn Richard – one of the three remaining bandmates – tells exclusively.

“It wasn’t a personal thing,” Richard continues, saying her sexy look (the singer posed topless in Complex last month) was alienating young fans.

“We had just did a signing with Dollhouse Teen, which is for 13, 14-year-old young girls,” Richard says. “So we can’t do that one day and then the next day do an obnoxious cover…. [Diddy] wants the fans, and he says he can’t do that if we can continue to go in the direction that we were going.”

Diddy pointed to O’Day’s attitude as a reason for getting fired.

“I just want to work with the young lady that I signed, not the person that fame has made her,” he said via satellite on Tuesday’s show:

I’m not going to argue the decision. Aubrey O’Day outgrew the interesting phase about 10 minutes after she entered it, and that’s being generous. She has pushed her celebrity far past where it should have been by cultivating the image of not just a sexually liberated woman, but a tramp. It’s her schtick and just about all she has going for her. Her vocals are completely generic and Danity Kane will have no problem replacing her.

Replace? Yes, replace. Danity Kane will stay together and continue on without O’Day and one other member of the group. That brings this back to what I speculate is the real reason for the dismissals, Season 4 of Making the Band. Diddy wasn’t labeled a mega mogul for nothing.

    That’s like the Pope getting kicked out of the Vatican.

    Girlfriend needs a major makeover, a diet, and a clothes shopper.

    Sorry, Aubrey IS Danity Kane.

  5. minda says:

    Awe, I don’t think she needs to diet! Her body is great! And, just ’cause she chooses to look the way she wants to look, doesn’t mean everyone should call her names and judge her… we’re not in highschool still, are we people??? Anyway, without her, no one will care about that band. AND, the Pussycatdolls have a whorish image, and they have similar age fans… confusing! I don’t care about her or the band, or the show (in fact, she’s the only person in the band I have seen or read about) but, that seems like a bs reason. Most likely she just wanted to go solo, or stopped doin’ Puffy! Ha. Kidding! Kind of! 🙂

    She always has the most unflattering makeup. Raccoon eyes and too-pale duck lips are not a good combination. Add to that the hideous ensembles she wears, and dragging her poor little dog with its unfortunate dye-job to events… sorry, I just find her really unattractive and downright skanky. Like, Paris Hilton skanky. They’re on the same level.

    I’ve never even heard Danity Kane, or given enough of a crap to check their stuff out. They just seem like the dollar-store variant of the Pussycat Dolls- if you manage to look and sound cheaper and trashier than PCD, you should receive some kind of award. Quite a monumental feat.

    cultivating the image of not just a sexually liberated woman, but a tramp.

    What’s the difference?

    i’m worried that the stripper pole may now have a disease, thanks to slutty mc slutterton’s tongue.

    It was not a surprise, it was time for Aubrey to go. Hey, Destiny’s Child made it with just 3 members so can they. Sorry about D.Woods though. Well, they are no D.C but don’t hurt to try. Aubrey did let that fame get to her head, see how Diddy took that fame away so fast. See you that stand tall you might fall… and fall she did… who gives a crap anyway.. lol….

    What happened to Da Woods? 😮

  11. gracie says:

    Considering the most probably true rumors that Diddy has been hooking up with this chick for years…it seems a little hypocritical of him to now say that she’s “tarnished” their image.

    Ha! Diddy the big old man-ho has nooo
    room to talk about stuff like that.

    I don’t personally like Aubrey but I do feel kind of bad for her in this situation.

  12. Tia says:

    OMG, the outfit, the hair, the make up the boots that look too big for her foot.. are ALL a HOT ASS MESS !!!!!!

  13. persia says:

    it seems a little hypocritical of him to now say that she’s “tarnished” their image.
    seems right on target to me… hes been hitting it.. she let the ho tendancies creep out into the public, now shes damaged goods. look at puffs track record- no matter how much he uses up a woman, if his mama out-classes her, she’s got to go…

  14. jennifurrr says:

    i watched the first 2 season’s and she was my favorite… but she has changed A LOT since then and i just don’t care anymore. when i saw the complex photos i was just floored that this was the same girl, totally thought it was jenna jameson or something. i’ve never bought one of their albums or anything…

  15. hello says:

    Good for that Richard person knowing who their target demographic is and saying that her image wasn’t good for the image of the group as a whole and thier audience. Sounds like someone smart for once who actually cares about being a good role model.

  16. Jill says:

    I hate to say that I actually know this but she wasn’t evet their “lead” singer. She was barely featured on their first album and usually she is just back-up. We’ll see how far she gets as just another pretty face in Hollywood. Maybe this will bring her back to reality?

  17. Kuuipo says:

    Aubrey I’m sorry hun. But I think Hollywood got to your dam head. You were my favorite when you 1st started off. And I’ll have to agree with jennifurr you’ve changed alot. It’s funny how people change when they have money. See how evil money is.

  18. j says:

    wow thats funny getting kicked out of a skanky group for being a skank they didnt like her poseing topless for a mag but hell its ok for one of them to wear a string bikkini top to some place but thats ok kids are at that park but thats ok to wear a string bikkini top to a ball park with a bunch of kids there go topless in a mag that kids cant get to is not … p diddy sucks any ways

  19. Casey Stuver says:

    I have been a fan of Aubrey’s since the first “Making the Band 3” She’s always stood up for herself and the other girls. I disagree that Puffy thinks he is not at all to blame for this. He is. This could be worked out. “Both” sides need to be humbled. That is how arguments are resolved. Both parties compromise. Diddy is being ridiculous. He is really looking like a jerk. If he is a true leader, he will set the example.

  20. Mandy says:

    I love aubrey…she is her own self-dignified woman and I love that about her….It was best…SShe is a real chic who isn’t afraid of what people have to say…..She is very strong…

  21. JC says:

    i loved aubrey in the beginning! her and andrea were my favorite by far… aubrey was so sweet and gorgeous back then. now she just looks fake. if you look at the pictures of her before she had little boobs (which is fine bc the world still thought she was BEAUTIFUL) and now, all of a sudden her boobs are huge! its obvious she’s gained a lil bit of weight since then and even i know that your boobs don’t grow THAT much when you put on some weight. and her lips look like they were injected (which looks so rediculous), her hair extensions are platinum blonde and fake… not to mention she ACTS fake.i can barely stand to watch her on recent episodes because of how stupid and annoying she acts! she is abnoxious and has no class. she is exactly how diddy described her… raunchy and permiscuous. i think diddy made the right decision and wasn’t looking like a bad guy at all. she is not at all the same person. fame has gotten to her head and i think her next stop is playboy… i’m a HUGE fan of DK and i will love them still without her. as far as dwoods, i loved her too and she is so beautiful. but she didn’t seem happy with the group and obviously wants to persue other things. best of luck to her.

  22. Supermom says:

    I don’t judge Aubrey, she is who she is and I love her for it. Though in all honesty (coming from a (a-hem) thirty something lady that had the same ways as her), I’m afraid that she’s gonna look back several years from now if not sooner, and wish she had done things differently.

  23. Marcie says:

    Does anyone know if Aubrey has went to the other side. By saying that I mean the other side of the rapper gangs or whatever you want to call em. Ya know how theres an Eastcoast gang and a Westcoast gang. Basically diddy and biggy smalls (when he was alive) and then there was Tupac(when he was alive) and his crew. I did see her in a commercial for the 50 cent new tv reality show….not sure what side he is on but that would be pretty funny if she started makeing music with diddys’enemies……..hmmm.

  24. margaret says:

    well i think Diddy made a great decision giving her the boot. she was just a lil ol country bumpkin til he represented her and she didn’t know how to handle the fame. Diddy was trying to school her and she didn’t want to listen her career would have been so great if she would have listen to a “G” like Diddy he was trying to look out for her but she thought she new it all thats what happens when you don’t know how to handle fame and let it get to your head. Diddy don’t want that type of girl to be representing his label you go Diddy now she’s trying to get in wherever she can and girl don’t fit in anywhere except in penthouse hasbeens,wannabees but cant

    I have watched MTB since it first aired, even before Diddy became the producer (when they were searching for a boy band). What I never understood was why she was ridiculed for changing her appearance. As if no one else in the group looks different from when they first got chosen? Everyone grows, some people just grow in different ways. As for her attitude, she has always been outspoken and stood up for herself. So what’s the big deal if Aubrey posed topless? With the dance moves DK did they were just as provocative and sexual as any mag cover she posed for. And besides Diddy is smart enough to try and use sex to sell albums (which he did do for DK and Day26), I think he just got pissed off because Aubrey was showing off her goodies to the world instead of just him. Oh yeah and the whole boob job thing, that’s bs! I admit her breasts are bigger but I was a B cup until I gained weight, 15 pounds later I’m now a D cup. So it is possible to grow breast size from weight gain. I think she looks better voluptuous anyway, she looks healthy and well fed, unlike when she was first on MTB. Before she was malnourished and looked hungry for not only fame but for a cheeseburger! Honestly I think it was about time she was “kicked out” because I never paid much attention to anyone in the group besides her. She always looked out of place in the group, the same goes for D.Woods. I always hated Puffy/Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Diddy/Sean Combs – whatever his name is – and watching him on MTB just added to my hatred. It really showed how big of a douche bag he really is. From the beginning he didn’t like D.Woods. He always made it clear she was too fat for the group. Then he bitched at Aundrea and Aubrey for the same thing. People really can’t fathom women gaining weight, but that doesn’t make them fat, just bigger than what they once were. I believe anyone who is given fame and fortune will change, for the better or worse. This is only the beginning of the end for Aubrey. She will eventually learn her true destiny and then we will all look back and say, “Wow, look how far she has come.”
