Last week before a new episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” aired, I shared my Top 5 Debbie Gibson songs. Little did I know then that Donald Trump would end up firing the “Shake Your Love” singer that night. Since, Aubrey O’Day seems to think she’s had a far more illustrious career than Gibson, I thought I’d briefly talk about her time in the girl group, Danity Kane. While I’ve never been a fan of Aubrey, I can’t deny that Danity Kane spurned out a couple of really hot tracks. One of them is even my ring tone for fellow Homorazzi.com writer Topher.
Danity Kane is arguably the most successful band created from the “Making The Band” series when P. Diddy was in charge. The girl group was the first female group in Billboard history to debut their first two albums at the top of the charts. Who knew? Though they only had two studio albums, they had three Top 10 hits. Unfortunately, group turmoil and Diddy firing a few girls including O’Day led to the group’s demise. Rumors have swirled that a reunion might be in the works since a few of the girls have reconciled recently.
Even though I’m not the biggest fan of O’Day, I couldn’t help but feel for her during last week’s boardroom. Sure, she probably deserved a bit of the tongue lashing, but it went beyond that and was a bit abusive. While it’s one thing for your own teammates to trash you (it’s part of the game), it’s another when Donald Trump starts to jump in. Being the chauvinist that Trump is, he chastised O’Day for crying then just a few moments later praised Arsenio Hall for showing emotion when he tears up. Talk about double standard. I really can’t stand Trump and his contradictory holier than thou mentality (reminds me of an old boss), but I enjoy watching “Celebrity Apprentice“. Can’t Mark Burnett just fire him?
At the end of the episode, O’Day was shown going the elevator despite being part of the winning team. If you thought she was gone for good… she’s not. In the previews, she’s shown participating in this week’s challenge. Hopefully, Arsenio acts like a man and apologizes to O’Day for taking it too far and calling her every name in the book. As mentioned before, she deserved a bit of it, but Hall took it too far and made it more personal than it should’ve. Did you watch the highly-charged episode?

While I love both “Show Stopper” and “Damaged” in their original formats, its their dance remixes that made me become obsessed with them. Til this day, “Damaged” is routinely played on my iTunes and comes on whenever Topher calls. LOL. What’s your favorite track from Danity Kane? Or were you more of a O Town guy?
