    i hate it…..this is stupid, I miss melody and ashley already…..Robin Antin is dumb……Just like how they kicked Tiffanie out of girlicious because they wanted a “less urban appeal” (aka: they didnt want a black girl)……well im not buying no more of they shit….and Doll DOmination was MY ALBUM fa real…..ugh i hate it hate it hate it!!!!

  • [marie]

    Wow.. this chick Nicole can’t launch a successful solo career so she just uses props as her “band-mates” and music execs call it “Pussycat Dolls.”

    Lame..

  • Catchy

    wtf

  • missy

    oh boy, new trash!

  • Donovan

    It’s funny how she can front a band of basically glorified back up singers but she can’t seem to cut it as a solo artist. Hmmm.

  • Sandra

    oh I miss old members.
    Well again nothing will be change Nicole will sing all songs.

  • Ecko

    I’m not sure if I like Kherington as a Pussycat Doll. I loved her on SYTYCD. She’s a wonderful contemporary dancer.

  • Gab

    Big fan of Rino, loved her on America’s Best Dance Crew. Looks like Robin’s put together a dance crew to back up Nicole’s vocals. It’s not really a group per se as it is a vehicle for Nicole. But I think that with Rino and Kherington there, the dancing should get really exciting. I just hope Robin lets them do some real dancing and not just the tired old sweaty ho stuff she used to make the old girls do.

  • Emma

    Is this for real?

  • rems

    Trust nicHOle to make sure d other girls r kickd out cos d r growing wings, sure she slept her way round it just like she did to get d lead vocal snatchd from Melody at d last minute b4 their first album was releasd!!!! Atleast she’s stickng to wat she knows (dancing like a SLUT), cos home girl will never make as SOLO ARTIST nor taken seriously as one:-)

  • RECYCLING

    LOL.

  • Amelle

    Carmit & Jessica >>>>>> the rest.

  • Frida

    I’m not a PCD fan at all, but I do think that if you replace everyone but one person it’s not the same band anymore. And I wish Kherington would stay out of this mess. I love her as a dancer but as a singer? Oh yea, that’s why Nicole is still there isn’t it? She’s the only one who can sing.

  • Ankka

    i predict a MEGA FLOP!! does anybody even care? let Nicole do her thing and make a new group but not like this! she is going 2 sing the lead vocals anyway so what’s the use???

  • agirllikeme

    Why did the old pcd broke up?

  • nothinleft06

    love RINO from the beat freaks…so i will be interested to see what happens

  • POOCHIE

    more of the same

  • meg

    why do they even bother?

  • saran

    Sorry to say but Nicole doesn’t even have that great of a voice but I’m actually excited to see what the new PCD will bring. I think Robin brought in great talent to join the new group. I only recoginze Rino from ABDC and Kherington from SYTYCD and both are very talented dancers. I watched Girlicious but somehow I don’t remember Jamie. What happened to Melody…the only other PCD that can actually sing? Isn’t she still part the group?

  • okay whatever

    @saran:

    Jamie was part of the show but never made the group. I agree both Rino and Kherington are amazing dancers, but i feel they don’t belong in the group.

  • Lauren

    I like Rino, but I hate Nicole and PCD, so I think it will be a big FLOP.

  • http://www.bbwdatingmatch.com/ Leslee

    they are pretty

  • iamAWESOME

    LMAO!!! they made them look like the last ones… this is sad.. but hilarious.

  • Koree

    This is a joke! Are they serios with this nonsense? There is no pussycat dolls without Ashley,Melody and Jessica! I knew things were gonna go downhill when they first came out with the search for the next doll, then Carmit left & Nicole got to sing everything

  • http://twitter.com/irees irees

    Who cares who they are? We didn’t know who they replaced in the first place. Who can actually name a Pussycat Doll besides Nicole? Perhaps Melody, but that’s it. All the other girls are just “glorified back-up dancers”. They won’t matter until they’re given substantial singing parts.

  • Debbie

    It is certainly not that Nicole can’t launch a successful solo career. I think it is the record company and promo team who find her more “useful” as part of a brand. That’s what the Pussycat Dolls are to the moneymakers: a brand. They’ve been a successful brand, so obviously, the ones making the $$$ want to keep it going as long as possible. They are probably bribing Nic with a future solo release deal, just to force her to stay with the group longer.

    Notice that the new members bear a striking resemblance to the previous batch, and I’m sure that’s no coincidence. Execs are hoping no one will notice the change! Same thing happened when Carmit left in 2008 and suddenly Jessica became a red head. Coincidence? I think not. The general public probably won’t notice a thing, but from what I’m reading, hardcore fans are hardcore fans no longer.

    I do not at all favor the decision to continue PCD with a new lineup, however I wish the new girls the best. It’s not their fault. This is probably the biggest thing that’s ever happened to them and they deserve a shot at their dreams. Any one of the original dolls in the pop group—Ashley, Carmit, Melody, Kim, Jessica or even Nicole—could have been in the same place in their past.

    That being said, my emotional investment in the group is gone. When fans lose emotional investment in an artist, THAT is when the success of the artist begins to plummet. A lineup change as huge as this is most likely going to kill off all the hardcore fans’ emotional investment, no matter what Nicole & company put out there musically. I guess we’ll see what happens…

  • Toni

    Isn’t vanessa the girl that was said to be messing around with Kobe?

  • Tee.

    …hmm, interesting, they are all dancers yet none (except maybe Jamie) have any singing experience. Nicole just comes off as a b***h, and from what I’ve heard the former members say, she has a huge ego. And as someone else already said, she can’t launch a solo career so they get props/dancers to be the Pussycat Dolls. Give it up Nicole, obviously not very many people like you. I really hope she doesn’t win Dancing with the Stars, it will just add to her already overgrown ego. I LOVE and miss Jessica and Ashley, those girls were amazing, and they both had great voices that they pushed to the background. Hope they either establish solo careers or join another, better, more diverse group that allows them to sing (preferably together cause that would make me very happy). Plus, Rino and Kherington deserve better, wonderful dancers.

  • http://twitter.com/louiseiram wish

    @Gab: so true, so true… cant wait for their performance.. i hope this will not be a flop. though i dont like them. but im a kherington fan anyway. :D

  • http://twitter.com/louiseiram wish

    i hope Kherington and Rino’s talent will be used here. not just any b****y dancing.. and they’re too good to be here.

  • http://twitter.com/louiseiram wish

    hope Kherington and Rino’s talent will be used here. not just any b****y dancing.. and they’re too good to be here.

  • XYZ

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/05/04/miley-cyrus-cant-be-tamed-video-premiere/ MB

  • DT

    PCD has some pretty good songs. However, doe’s anyone really care about the other girls? Nicole is always on camera and sings all the main parts of there songs. So, I am confused why they need new girls? Nicole never let the other girls shine and that is why they all quit! Basically, Nicole has to realize that she is just not as good on her own. Her solo music SUCKED!

    THIS IS TOO FUNNY FOR WORDS.THEY ARE THE NEW SUGABABES!!!!!! CHANGING BAND MEMBERS EVERY FEW YEARS AND THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL STILL BE THERE IS NICOLE.GO AWAY YOU OLD HAG NICOLE. SHE’S LIKE 40 OR SOMETHING TRYING TO PASS FOR A 20SOMETHING. GET OVER IT NICOLE. YOU ARE OLD AND WASHED UP AND YOU CANT CUT IT ON YOUR OWN AS A SOLO ARTIST THATS WHY YOU ALWAYS COME RIGHT BACK TO THE GIRLS
    THIS IS ONE BIG JOKE

  • Dee

    Well I wish the new members luck, but I really never liked Nicole, she should have been replaced! If you are going to give a group a new and more YOUTHFUL vibe, get rid of all existing members and start from scratch. I feel bad b/c these poor girls are going to be used as dance props; I hope I’m wrong! I will say, I love Rino, she’s AMAZING! I personally think she’s too good to be in this kind of group, but whatever maybe they are going in a new direction. Only time will tell.

  • Gomorrha

    FAIL….what a nice project….Nicole and Robin come across as really nice people…not! Well I am really looking forward to Kim’s solo project!!!! Electronica + Kim = wicked man

  • Kathy

    Seeing as how Jaime was cut from PCD Presents: Girlicious solely because she can’t sing, I don’t have high hopes for these replacements.

  • http://facebook.com athea

    UgHHHH… I am sick of this ,this isn’t a HOT STUFF i hate the new members . this is REDICOLOUS i hate it return ashley,jessica,kim and MELODY ughhh………. gross

  • http://facebook athea

    I HATE IT WAHHH

  • Sam

    PCD is nothing without melody, ashley, jess, and kim.
    Now PCD is suck.

  • Rover

    I can,t believe I am in such distinguished company!! A long list of people who are extremely critical of a group who,bar Nicole,they havn,t seen or heard perform together yet. Such incredible foresight!! They must be psychic!!
    It seems clear that Nicole will continue to do the lead singing role,but why not ? This has been the formula ever since ,Don,t Cha, but it seems to have worked alright.
    What I am saying is,although it is quite sad to see the other girls leave ( none of us know why,but I would like to wish them all the best on whatever path they choose ), let,s not knock the new line-up until we at least have solid evidence.

    Best Wishes to All

    Rover

  • Rover

    Just a comment to Debbie,who seems to make perfect sense. There is a distinct likeness between the last line-up and the current one ( doesn,t Rino look very much like Jess!! ) , but just to re-iterate,we can,t pass comment on what we haven,t seen or heard.
    Good luck to all Pussycat Dolls,past or present.

    Peace and Love.

    Rover.
