Danity Kane fans across the world were ecstatic at the knowledge of a reunion but the sparkle dimmed a tad with the news of D. Wood not being a part of the tour. Speculations ran rampant over the last few months and D. finally put an end to the rumors. It’s not that she didn’t want to included in the tour, it just didn’t work with her schedule and there were no special accommodations made for her.
She explained in detail to Madame Noire:
“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.”
The former Danity Kane member has been hustling to make a name for herself and couldn’t drop all of her projects for a tour she wasn’t even aware was happening.
“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.”
Despite not being on tour with the now trio, D. Wood is doing her thing. She’s just wrapped up “Blackbird,” a Patrick Ian Polk film alongside actress Mo’Nique and actor Isaiah Washington. She also starred in the theatrical stage play “A Mother’s Love” beside Kandi Burress.
For the fans who love D. Woods the singer, she will be releasing her full LP “My Favorite Color” this summer and debuted her first single “Call it quits” last month.
