The Pussycat Dolls were founded in 1995 as a burlesque troupe and after being rebranded as a girl group in 2003, they went on to become a huge success. The breakthrough single ‘Don’t Cha’ ft. Busta Rhymes was a massive hit and their albums PCD and Doll Domination went on to sell over 15 million copies worldwide. Despite successful singles, albums and tours, the group eventually called it a day in 2010. Here’s what the six members of the group are up to today.
After the group split up, Kimberly kept herself busy with lots of TV work, and the occasional bit of music. She lives in the UK and is happily married to model Max Rogers; the two welcomed their first daughter Willow in 2014. She won Celebrity MasterChef in 2015 and is currently a School Sport Ambassador for the Youth Sport Trust, encouraging young women to take up dancing to improve their health and wellbeing.
2. Melody Thornton
Melody was the youngest member of the group and was the second most prominent singer, after Nicole Scherzinger. She’s currently a part-time model and, after releasing her mixtape P.O.Y.B.L. in 2012, she’s working on her first solo album.
3. Jessica Sutta
Jessica has focused on making music since the group’s split. She released the mixtape Feline Resurrection and is set to release her first full-length studio album Say Yes later in 2016. To promote the album, she released several singles from it throughout 2016.
4. Ashley Roberts
Since the group parted ways, Ashley has kept herself busy by taking part in lots of TV shows. She’s appeared on a lot shows in the UK, such as I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!!! as a contestant and Dancing on Ice as a judge for two series, while also making regular appearances on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and The Keith Lemon Sketch Show. She’s currently hosting 1st Look, a travel and lifestyle program on NBC.
5. Carmit Bachar
Carmit was a member of the original Pussycat Dolls dance troupe from 1995-2001 before crossing over to the girl group. Since the girl group disbanded, not only has she released some solo music and become part of electropop duo LadyStation, she’s also got engaged and had a daughter.
6. Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole was the group’s most prominent member by far, doing most of the singing and appearing centre stage in pretty much all of the group’s videos. She’s been the most successful since the group disbanded, starring in Cats in the West end, releasing two solo albums, appearing on several TV shows and landing a string of endorsement deals. She can currently be seen as a judge on The X Factor, returning for her third series after a two-year absence.
