WHEN the PUSSYCAT DOLLS split five years ago in the most acrimonious of showbiz fallouts, I wouldn’t have predicted a reunion.
The other cat ladies turned on the girl band’s standout member NICOLE SCHERZINGER as she plotted a big future as a solo star.
But circ*mstances are very different in 2015 after Nicole was axed by record label RCA, dropped from The X Factor’s judging panel and left heartbroken following her split with her long-term boyfriend, F1 star LEWIS HAMILTON.
Now I’ve learned the ladies behind Noughties mega hits such as Buttons and Don’t Cha are in talks about reuniting.
Apparently, Nicole’s feud with fellow Dolls KIMBLERLY WYATT, ASHLEY ROBERTS, MELODY THORNTON and JESSICA SUTTA is now over.
My Dolls source revealed: “The band are in talks about reuniting soon and they are trying to see if they can get all of the girls together to do it.
“The fall-outs and bitching from back in the day are all water under the bridge now.
“Nicole has seen most of the girls on and off over the years and she’s ready to get back together.
“Rather than trying to patch up their differences, it’s more about working out how to get everyone in the studio and see what it will actually sound like.”
In a new interview, Nicole further raised hopes of a return to the days of Dolls Domination.
She said of a reunion: “I don’t see why not. I miss it. I miss the girls.
“It was such a crazy time for us that stepping away from it now and taking some time away from it I’m like ‘I wanna be able to do it again and really enjoy it and take it in and enjoy the travels with the girls’.
“I think in due time if it’s meant to be, that would be a lot of fun and a blessing.”
Sounds to me like a very happening thing.
The cynics will, of course, suggest Nicole is only interested in tapping into her Pussycat past again because her last solo release, On The Rocks, charted at No90.
But in fairness, every time I’ve spoken to Nic about the Dolls over the past few years she’s always been open to the idea of getting back together when the time is right.
They've had two already and Emma has been hinting of another for 2016, because it'll be 20 years since 'Wannabe' was released. I'm bored the by Spice Girls at this point.
It would be epic for PCD if they came back Melody as lead. Leave Nicole at home.
They only reunited in 2012 for a one off performance. Before that it was 2007 for a tour and before that it had been 10 years since they'd been together. That's not really a lot of stuff for die hard fans like me
It's enough for everyone who isn't. Especially those of us here in the UK, where the press all but jerk off to the idea of them mounting a "huge comeback". All they have to do is say "we might do tour" and the press will use those words relentlessly for the next six months. They don't have to say another damn word, the press do all their promo for them.
