The Pussycat Dolls will never reunite with Nicole Scherzinger, one of its members has claimed. Carmit Bachar blamed the group's split on the X Factor judge's ambition to go solo and her distant relationship with her bandmates.
"Nicole tried to do a solo album, but it did not work and I think that hurt the label and everyone else in the end," Bachar told The Sun. "I heard she did a ton of demos which weren't cheap. In a scramble they tried to get the Dolls to do a second album. They weren't really hot album songs, it didn't sound like us. I think that's when the other girls decided they had reached the end of the road."
Speaking about former Pussycat Dolls member Ashley Roberts, who is currently starring in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Bachar said she is proud of her friend.
"Ashley wants to act in romantic comedies now," she explained. "Also, she would like to find a nice British man. She's doing great in the I'm a Celebrity jungle and I am so proud of her - there is no way I could handle all those creepy crawlies!"
She added: "I'm still good friends with Ashley - she's my soul sister. All of the Dolls are still friends, apart from Nicole. Nicole knows I had a child, my daughter Kaela Rose last year, but she never got in touch. A Pussycat Dolls reunion isn't out of the question. Five of us - and not Nicole - could happen. But all six? Never. Too much water under the bridge."
