Everyone is excited for Jessica Simpson to be hosting a party with the Pussycat Dolls tomorrow night.
Well, everyone except for Asia Nitollano, that is.
The winner of The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll was nowhere to be seen during a performance by PCD in Atlanta last week – and the celebrity gossip mill is buzzing with the possibility that she might never actually be included with the group.
Sources say Asia “isn’t “the best match” for the group. Which is strange because, you know, she won the contest to be in the group.
This would be akin to Melinda Doolittle winning American Idol and then fans saying she wouldn’t make a good singer.
Or The Bachelor, Andy Baldwin, choosing a mate and then not going through with the marriage.
Warner Bros. tells TMZ, though, that Nitollano “is absolutely a member … and will tour with the group and record for the Dolls’ second album.”
Calls to the group were not returned. But things aren’t looking so hot for Asia: the reality show has been green-lit for another season… and how many members can the Pussycat Dolls really need?
Also, TMZ spotted Robin Antin, the creator of the group, dancing with the runners-up on the series last night at the Stoli Hotel in Hollywood. It sounds to us like Katie Cassidy and Jesse McCartney have a brighter future than Asia and the Dolls.
