Ah, The Pussycat Dolls. Remember when their music was everywhere? Of course you do. In fact, depending on your age, you probably requested "Don't Cha" when you were out at the club with your pals — 2005 was a magical time!
Well, for anyone who considered themselves a card-carrying PCD fan, we have some good news for you: The ladies are reuniting! In a recent Instagram post, the all-girl group confirmed that they're getting the band (more like burlesque performers) back together. Nicole Scherzinger will be joining forces with Melody Thornton, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt, and Ashley Roberts to no doubt inject some serious sexy back into pop music.
Before we loosen up our buttons though, it's only right that we find out what the ladies — including Carmit Bachar, who won't be apart of PCD 2.0 — have been up to since the early aughts. Some of them are clearly more well-known than others, but that certainly doesn't mean they all haven't been living fabulous lives. Scroll down to see what The Pussycat Dolls are up to today!
There's a breakout star in every band, and for The Pussycat Dolls that person was Nicole Scherzinger. Since leaving PCD, Nicole has gone on to enjoy a successful singing career — her song "Don't Hold Your Breath" reached No. 1 in the UK — and she also became a judge on The X Factor. Additionally, Nicole won Dancing With the Stars with her partner Derek Hough in 2010, was the voice of Sina in Moana, and has had a few parts in movies, including the remake of Dirty Dancing. She recently split from her long-time boyfriend, Formula 1 racer, Lewis Hamilton.
Melody, the youngest member of the group, was often credited as being second to Nicole in PCD, but you best believe she didn't like that. In 2016, the singer revealed in an interview that, due to management favoritism, she was essentially forced to be Nicole's backup dancer. "I got into the group to sing," she remarked. Since leaving the band, Melody has continued to make music. In 2012, she released her own mixtape entitled P.O.Y.B.L," an acronym for Piss On Your Black List, and in 2013, she was a featured vocalist on the LL Cool J song "Something About You (Love The World)."
Despite the fact that she's going to be part of the reunited group, Jessica actually left PCD in 2010 to embark on a solo career. Her debut single, "Show Me," reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart and her official debut solo album, I Say Yes, was released in March of this year. Her Instagram features loads of sexy photos, so yeah, you could say she still has her sparkle.
Not long after Jessica left the group, Kimberly followed, and for similar reasons — she wanted to focus on her solo career. As opposed to sticking to just singing though, Kimberly went on to be a judge on the British reality show Got to Dance. She also, along with Paula Abdul and Travis Payne, was a judge on the short-lived series Live to Dance, which was the US version of Got to Dance. In addition to her TV stints, Kimberly formed a band called Her Majesty & the Wolves, whose album, 111, was released in the UK in 2011. Currently, Kimberly is judging the dance show Taking the Next Step. Hey, if it ain't broke…
Since leaving PCD, Ashley has focused on her music, but has also made a name for herself as a reality star in the UK. She came in second on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2012, and then became a judge on the show Dancing On Ice for two seasons. In 2014, she released her first solo album, The Butterfly Effect, but it didn't exactly become a hit. Currently, she's a spokesmodel for Garnier's self-tanning line.
As with most of the other ladies, Carmit has focused primary on her music since leaving the girl group. In 2011, she formed LadyStation and released a single called "Body In Motion." The year before, she collaborated with Macy Gray on her album The Sellout. No word yet as to why Carmit won't be joining the PCD reunion, but from the looks of things on social media, she's enjoying life with her adorable daughter.
