Singer Aubrey O'Day Gets her Own Show on Oxygen

It's been reported that ex-Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day is set to return to reality TV with her own show on Oxygen. 'The Aubrey O'Day Project' will follow her as she attempts a comeback in the music industry with the help of some demanding industry professionals.

O'Day first found fame on the MTV series 'Making the Band 3' in 2004 when she was chosen to be the first member of the all-girl group Danity Kane. The band's first two albums debuted at number one in the Billboard charts, and they opened for acts like Christina Aguilera. However, in 2008, O'Day was famously fired from Danity Kane on TV by Sean Combs after he was allegedly concerned that she was trying to become more famous at the expense of the band.

Announcing the new show, Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior V.P., original programming and development at Oxygen, said: "Young women have watched the ups and downs of Aubrey through the years, and they continue to cheer her on. ... We're excited to deliver her story as she battles the issues that resonate with our audience, from self-doubt and body image to an intense desire for success and redemption."

Since leaving Danity Kane, O'Day has pursued a solo musical career and has appeared in the Broadway show 'Hairspray.' She's also appeared in other reality TV shows, designed a clothing line and has modeled for several men's magazines.

Oxygen has not yet confirmed when 'The Aubrey O'Day Project' will debut, or how many episodes it has ordered. It will be produced by Ish Entertainment, with Michael Hirschorn, Madison Merritt and Wendy Roth as executive producers. The show joins an ever-expanding roster of reality shows being built up by the network, which recently confirmed that 'Bad Girls' spin-off 'Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too' will return for a second season.
