Made-for-TV girl group Danity Kane is making a comeback, but without one of its original members.
Shannon Bex, Aundrea Fimbres, Aubrey O'Day, and Dawn Richard, who starred on MTV's "Making the Band," arrived to the Video Music Awards together Sunday night to proclaim their reunion. But fifth member, Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett, was not present or featured on Danity Kane's newly released promo picture.
Woods addressed her absence Sunday in a message posted on her Instagram page.
"There's alot of people talking, but there's nothing but love," she wrote. "Today's #GOLDMINEOFTHEDAY is none other than @Aubreyoday, @shannon_bex, @dawnrichard, @aundreafimbres1 otherwise known as @danitykane."
Woods added, "Don't think you know their whole story cuz you watched part of their journey on MTV. These ladies are just getting started. Stay tuned."
After noting the Danity Kane reunion, Woods announced the release of "Goldmine," a solo effort.
The newly reformed Danity Kane revealed that it was prepping the release of a new song called "Rage" produced by The Stereotypes. The ladies added that their "Making the Band" mentor, Sean "Diddy" Combs, would not be working with them on the new project.
"We're on our own this time," they said during a VMAs pre-show interview.
Bex, Fimbres, O'Day, and Richard made news in May when they were photographed having lunch together in Los Angeles.
Though Richard said Woods had been invited to the meeting, Woods said she learned about the gathering online.
"I found out when my Twitter timeline went off the chain," she told Detroit radio station WGPR in May. "I was surprised myself, however, after seeing the pictures, after seeing the clips of the video, I saw that they were in Los Angeles and I am not in Los Angeles which is why I was not in the picture."
The group disbanded in 2008 after releasing two successful albums, a 2006 self-titled set and 2008's "Welcome to the Dollhouse."
