Singer turned television personality Nicole Scherzinger came to international stardom with the help of 2000s girl group The Pussycat Dolls. Their rise and implosion was huge news nearly a decade ago. Now, Scherzinger has moved on and become co-host of the NBC variety series Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris.
Scherzinger recently went on The Wendy Williams Show to promote the show and Wendy hit her with a question about her relationship with the other members of the former group.
Wendy threw shade at the other girls by asking the former leader singer, “Do you keep in touch with those girls? Be honest. Or are they hating on your because you’re the only one who’s relevant?”
Nicole didn’t back down and gave an honest answer. “We actually weren’t always close, because, you know, they didn’t even put sleep in our schedules. So we were like a family and got on each other’s nerves. But now that time has passed, now we actually keep in touch. Kim [Wyatt] just had a baby! You grow up.”
The singer concluded her response by saying she keeps in touch with most of the girls. There was some side-eye along with the comment and Wendy picked up on it. Wendy said it was easy for Scherzinger to move past old drama because she’s on a new hit series.
Nicole jokingly added, “Because I’m famous, people!”
