Theeeeey're Baaaack~ En Vogue

I guess those rumors a few months ago are now becoming reality. The ladies of En Vogue are back at it! This time, with all of the original members, Cindy Herron, Terry Ellis, Dawn Robinson, and... I always forget this last chicks name... Maxine Jones.

For those of you who have followed the quartet through the years, you would know that En Vogue has won more MTV Video Music Awards (7) than any other female group in MTV history. They've sold more than 20 million albums and singles worldwide, and they're the 18th most successful act of the 1990's. Seems like all those accomplishments and success would have kept them together. But we all know that most of the time, it only tears groups apart. Someone is always trying to out shine everyone else because they believe that they are the sole reason for the group being as successful as it is, yadda yadda yadda!

Cindy, Terry, and Maxine, have always been a part of the group, but not Dawn. If you recall, Ms. Dawn was given the boot from the group in 1997. She tried her hand with the group formed by Tony! Toni! Tone! member Raphael Sadiiq, Lucy Pearl, but was booted from that group as well.

Seems that Dawn and her husband Dre Allen were at one point in time last year, trying to get a reality show about them being poor and sleeping on the streets. Obviously that didn't pan out because Dre took to his myspace page and let Ms. Dawn have it:

"You got kicked out of En Vogue & they didn’t even want to FACE you because you are the most DIFFICULT person in the world to deal with! They left you sitting at a photo shoot for the last album & didn’t tell you where they were at shooting the EV3 cover without you…remember that??? Raphael Saadiq kicked you out of Lucy Pearl because your attitude jeapordized an operation he worked HARD to get off the ground…and HE didn’t even face you…you found out you got kicked out on the RADIO!! Ask yourself why Dawn…because…you’re a phony, nagging, complaining, two faced, spoiled rotten B*TCH!!!!! We haven’t even STARTED talking about your deal with Dr. Dre! What happened there Dawn? He BOOTED you before you even started because he saw your mouth a mile away! You dug this grave for yourself"

He even continued to say that even though she told him that she had slept with 17 dudes in the past month from swinger sites, he gave her the benefit of the doubt and stayed. Damn. If I was the other three ladies, I don't know if I'd want to deal with that drama again! I mean, chick does have a powerful voice, but is it really worth the headache? Either way, I wish them the best of luck with it all! Trying to bring sexy back at damn near 60 ain't easy! I kid! I kid!
