The once-successful girl group, which was formed by Diddy on "Making the Band," hit a major reunion hiccup last year -- after Dawn Richard allegedly attacked Aubrey O'Day.
The band's re-launch was called off, but O'Day and fellow DK alum Shannon Bex went in a new direction on their own, forming the duo Dumblonde.
With the twosome's album killing it on iTunes after an indie launch last week, Bex and O'Day stopped by toofab's studio to chat about their latest venture and the demise of Danity Kane.
"We were definitely shocked and we were in bed for a good week and crying and trying to figure out what do we do now?," Bex says of the fallout from the fight between Dawn and Aubrey.
"We love to create and we love working together so we thought why not get in the studio," she adds. And thus, Dumblonde was born.
Without the extra baggage weighing them down, the two were able to accomplish an impressive amount of work in a small window of time.
"We've been able to do a lot. We didn't even get one music video done in the last album because everybody was focused on the wrong things," explains Aubrey. "We literally came out the gate with 7 music videos."
And with their sights set firmly on their new group, it sounds like DK is never, ever getting back together.
"We completely respect the past we came from, we wouldn't be here without all the opportunities," says Shannon, "but I think we're all ready to have the next chapter."
Aubrey adds that Dawn hasn't reached out to apologize or "made any effort" to speak to them since the incident ... and they've returned that silence.
"We always say when you're swimming upstream continuously, you're not in your current, that's when you know you have to trust what you feel and move on," O'Day tells toofab. "I think we fought that for years with Danity Kane."
"We were never on a stream, there was a gut-wrenching feeling during every part of it, but you have to remain professional and bonded in front of everybody," she continues. "It's hard. We're lucky to get to do what we do and to ever show any of the bad days is ungrateful."

Their album, "White Lighting," is available now on iTunes.
