In their first interview since getting back together, the group talked to Rap-Up about their reunion and how they reconciled. “The way it feels being back together, for me surreal,” Shannon started, “The other word I have is completed. It feels good.” Dawn also said, “In a great way, it’s kinda put women together that have gone through different things in their lives and say, ‘We don’t always have to agree, but there is something here that is of sisterhood and there’s something here that is incomplete that needs to be finished.’” “We have our family back. I’ve been in a relationship with them longer than anyone I’ve loved, since I was 17.” said Aubrey O’day, who went solo after the group broke up. She also talked about what she called a “toxic” romance, that led her to therapy and says it forced her to reexamine her life. “I was thinking about the relationships that can and can’t be resolved, and one of them that wasn’t resolved yet that could be was Dawn,” she explained. She then said that her and Dawn decided to met up and talk their issues out. “We actually met up and sat for like eight hours and talked through everything. For us, it’s gotta be sincere or we’re not doing it, money’s great, but we don’t need it. Fame is great, but we don’t need it. We only want it in a sincere way.” As far as what you can expect from their tour, they said there will be solo sets from Dawn, as well as one from Aubrey and Shannon’s duo dumblonde, of course the original Danity Kane hits, and even some new music. DK3 is set to hit the road this week on their “The Universe Is Undefeated Tour,” the first tour from the group in four years. The U.S. leg of the tour starts this Friday Sept. 28th in Stamford, CT.
