D. Woods (Danity Kane) Interview / NAACP Event

Reality TV continues to dominate our Televisions Screens with its Drama & Vulnerability. So what's the next step after you've been suddenly dismissed from the situation??? Sure the ratings for MTV's Making The Band are in good standings, But where does an artist like D. Woods fit into the equation. Entertainment Website, Hollyscoop.com sent me to cover an NAACP Event where I went one on one with D. Woods about her wild ride w/ Diddy & Danity Kane. Quotes & Pictures Posted Below:

Ronnie Jr: You have so many fans that wanted to see Danity Kane back together, Is that how you feel also, How does looking back at the experience make you feel now?

D. Woods: "I feel like everything happens for a reason, it came to an end when it needed to. There was alot of outstanding issues and obviously that was the only way it could be resolved. And I know that I did my very best in the situation. I added to the group in the way that, I knew how to be a group member. I provided us with choreographers, with management, song writing, and everything that I could. But if if your services are not being appreciated you gotta take it elsewhere." 

Ronnie Jr: From a viewers standpoint, It seemed like you were really seizing the opportunity, Maybe some of the other members were on a different page, Is that what happened?

D. Woods: "I think everyone works differently, But I think that if you could just respect everyone's work ethic, Which ya know everyone has different work ethics, And I think thats the reason why me and Aubrey gravitated to each other. Because we have very magnectic personalities and sometimes that can rub people the wrong way."

Ronnie Jr: So its safe to say that you and Aubrey still connect and talk business?

D. Woods: "Yeah actually I am gonna hook up with her later cause its her Birthday."

Ronnie Jr: She is doing a Playboy thing at Apple Lounge right?

D. Woods: "Yes Yes, Come on you should come, Haha."

Ronnie Jr: Ok Lets talk Diddy, On the show he has stated that you sorta caught the wrath of Aubrey, Does that mean that maybe you could still have a soft spot for him?

D. Woods: "I definitely always want to keep it respectful, He has done a lot in this industry. You never wanna burn bridges that what I was taught. But after him lecturing us about making decisions based on emotion, he went in and made an emotional decision. I don't think it was that, I feel like he had very clear reasons why he came in that room and decided to terminate those that he did." 

Ronnie Jr: Are you at the point where you are more focusing on you, Or if the Phone rang from Diddy would you consider going back into that situation?

D. Woods: "I think, Because when the episode aired it had actually happened two months ahead of that, So I'm one who is very flexible and I'm like ok if thats not the plan anymore, Keep it movin and stay motivated, stay positive. Congratulate people with what they are doing, And maybe we will cross paths again maybe we wont."

Ronnie Jr: The NAACP event was tonight and President Obama is in office, What are your emotions right now?

D. Woods: "I feel like all the kids at school who are doing their Black History Reports have so much to write about this month, I am kinda lost for words. This is the whole idea behind the NAACP, The Advancement of People of Color."

Ronnie Jr: Jennifer Hudson, Like yourself is a young strong performer, How do you think she is facing life considering her recent loses?

D. Woods: "She is really really blessed, She enormously talented and sometime when your that talented you are a gifted person, Not to get to spiritual but sometimes you are a chosen child of god and I commend her for staying on a path and blowing us out the water every time she performs, I love when she performs." 

(Note) D. Woods is also focusing on her Acting Career and will be releasing a Mix Tape soon, Returning to a more grassroots approach
