Your early 's guilty pleasure 'Making the Band' is coming back to MTV this year, which makes us reminisce about one of the greatest successes to come out of the show's original run, the band Danity Kane. They were formed on the third season of the show and signed to Diddy's record label Bad Boy Records. Their first album performed very well in the United States, but fans were ultimately left confused when Diddy kicked members Aubrey O'Day and D. Woods out of the band in season four. This was the start of years of disagreements between the members, miscommunications, and a lack of funding for the band, as member Dawn Richard explained in a new documentary about the band that is featured on Youtube. She went on to say that Diddy never particularly believed in them or projected how successful they would be because he knew the real money was in making shows for MTV and continuing to search for bands to form. The show had so many viewers that it became his main focus to try and entertain these audiences. With a lack of money on tour and a lack of good management from their team, it was hard for the band to function as a unit and know what the next steps were in furthering their careers. They often went on to pursue solo projects as they didn't know what the fate of the band would be.
