Aubrey O’Day gets her own MTV series after turning down A Shot of Love offer

After being fired from Danity Kane, the now-defunct Making the Band group, Aubrey O’Day is moving on: to another MTV reality show.

However, contrary to incorrect reports, she’s not going to star in the next season of A Shot of Love, although the bisexual singer says she was asked to do it. “There was originally some talk about me coming on ‘A Shot at Love.’ They were excited about me keeping with the network, and they thought I would be great for it since I’m America’s favorite bisexual,” Aubrey told MTV News.

Instead, she’s working on a show that just follows her life. “I am doing my own reality show, and I’m co-executive-producing my own show. It’s a docu-soap about me taking the stage again and of my own life,” she said. “The show is going to be amazing. The [stage] show they’ve created is unbelievable. I’m going to be singing, dancing and acting … much different than [my time on Broadway in] ‘Hairspray.'”

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
