Those who were loving Rich Harrison‘s new R&B girl group RichGirl will probably scorn at the news that they disbanded last year. I loved RichGirl. There is not one song of theirs that I didn’t like and talent-wise, I felt they could have been the closest thing to Destiny’s Child. Despite the band supporting Beyonce on her ‘I Am…’ tour in 2009, they never did get the momentum they deserved, so they split. Kristal Lyndriette Smith then decided to continue pursuing her dream of being in a girl group by joining the newly reformed Pussycat Dolls. This decision might be a downgrade especially if the group consists of a spotlight hogging lead singer and she finds herself and the other girls serving as back-up dancers. That was clearly the case with the original dolls. Plus, their founder Robin Antin is clearly trying to clone the former glory of her once popular girl group.
Other girls in the band include Lauren Bennett from the now defunct girl group Paradiso Girls and alleged Kobe Bryant mistress Vanessa Curry, a former Laker chick. I can’t really see this happening but will gladly eat my words if proven wrong. Photo source.
