D. Woods Finally Shares The Full Story About Why She Didn’t Participate In The Danity Kane Reunion
When it was first announced that Danity Kane would be reuniting, there were a lot of mixed reports regarding D. Woods’ absence. Initially, D claimed that she learned about the group’s reunion on Twitter, which led many to believe that she was totally excluded from the plans. Then, months later, she confirmed her story that the ladies never asked her to reunite with them—despite claims that she turned down their reunion invite. Now, she appears to be telling a bit of a different story. According to her most recent interview with The Jasmine Brand, she was sort of invited; however, the ladies weren’t trying to work with her schedule so she passed.
“I was never involved in whatever they were planning,” D explained. “I was doing a production called ‘Rebirth,’ when I found out about it. So I’m deeply engulfed in this production, I just finished wrapping up ‘Blackbird’ and I’m like, ‘I didn’t know anything about this reunion, but if you guys want to work with me with what I have going on,’—and they didn’t seem very cooperative to make it work.”
D then went on to explain why she didn’t drop everything to be a part of the DK reunion.
“Definitely had a bunch of projects going on and the questions I had to make it work, to be beneficial for both what I had been doing for the past 4 years. When the group was disbanded what was I supposed to do, sit and wait for somebody to give me the green light to live my life and my career? No. I just started up with Woodgrane Entertainment, which is my independent label and I continued doing what I do, what I did for my entire life which was being an artist. One door closes, another one opens. That came up and I was like let’s try to make this work, ‘oh you don’t have any of the answers, well call me when you do’ and they didn’t.”
She also made it clear that she doesn’t think there is anything she could have done differently to make the reunion work.
“I don’t think I had any other choice in the matter.”
While they began their reunion as a quartet, the group has dwindled down to a trio. Group member Aundrea Fimbres announced last month that she would be leaving the group to pursue personal aspirations including marriage and babies.
