Danity Kane Reunion 2013: Will Girl-Group Get Back Together Without Diddy? [VIDEO]

Girl-group Danity Kane, the brainchild of Sean 'Diddy' Combs and his show Making the Band is reuniting, but they won't be under the management of Diddy.
When asked if the group was getting back together, they laughed and dodged the question, though TMZ has learned from sources that a reunion is indeed in the works.
The group, whose singles include "Show Stopper" and "Damaged", met for lunch today with a new manager, allegedly to discuss plans. On Monday afternoon, TMZ caught up with four of the band's five members, including Aubrey O'Day, Shannon Bex, Audnrea Fimbres, and Dawn Richard, who playfully acted as though they didn't even know Diddy upon the paparazzo's questionings. In the video, they act confused at the mention of his name and even say, "Who's that?"
From 2005-2006, Diddy formed the group during the three seasons of MTV's Making the Band 3. Setting out to create the next top female supergroup, the show charted their origin all the way up to the debut of their first album. Their self-titled album sold 234,000 copies in its first week of release and ultimately climbed its way to number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
In 2009, Danity Kane again reached success with "Damaged", which became a top 10 hit in the US. Despite their success, Diddy fired all but one member from the band, Dawn Richard, over creative differences. Dawn went on to join Diddy's trio Dirty Money, which has also disbanded. Since then, each of Danity Kane's singers has tried their hand at solo work to varying degrees of success. Additionally, Aubrey O'Day appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice 5, coming in third place despite her arguably negative portrayal on the show.
As of now, it is unknown whether or not D. Woods, who wasn't involved in the lunch meeting, will be a member of the new Danity Kane.
