You know her as one of Diddy’s chosen girls from Danity Kane on Making The Band 3, Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray on Broadway, season 5 on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice…and you’re about to know her as the girl that blew the roof off of The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City on June 2nd.

Aubrey O'Day

Aubrey’ O’Day sat down to chat with us about her crazy, busy life and gave us the skinny on some of pop culture’s most anticipated rumors.

TAC: Welcome back to Atlantic City! We are excited to see you at The Pool After Dark on June 2nd. First things first, will you still be a ginger?

Aubrey O’Day: No! I am back to being a blonde, and am so happy about that!  

TAC: Be sure to snap those shots on Saturday, kids! Aubrey O’Day is blonde again and ready to have more fun. This isn’t your first time appearing at one of our properties in Atlantic City. What do you like about it here?

Aubrey: O’Day: I’ve always had the most amazing time inAtlantic City!  The restaurants are amazing, the hotels are beautiful, and the nightlife is sexy and fun! I’ve never had a bad time in AC!  Plus I always come up in the casinos!

TAC: This doesn’t surprise us at all, Aubrey! You always seem up for a challenge! Speaking of, we recently just saw you on Celebrity Apprentice. You had a bit of a rocky ride this season. You were pegged as one of the strongest competitors, yet had some personality conflicts with some of the contestants, namely Arsenio Hall. Looking back now, how would you describe your experience and do you feel the same towards Arsenio?

See what we are talking about here:

 

Aubrey O’Day: I am happy for another teachable moment under my belt. I am really happy that regardless of how people feel about me, they won’t question my intellect anymore!  One battle down, 500 more to go!  I played the game honestly and without manipulating or strategizing against anyone else. I depended only on what I gave during the tasks and nothing prior. I respect anyone that had the confidence in their ability to play the same way. I have no hard feelings toward anyone and I wish everyone the best!  

TAC: On the show you played for the charity GLSEN (Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network) and won $50,000 for them. You also have your own charitable organization FAN (Fight AIDS Now) and have volunteered for other organizations like the Pink Project. What made GLSEN your choice for the show?

Aubrey O’Day: GLSEN is a smaller charity that could really benefit from the 70k I raised in total and the publicity from the show. Bullying is an issue I experienced all throughout my childhood and I would do anything to save other kids from that pain. 

TAC: Let’s talk music. You have a new single out, Wrecking Ball, written by American Idol’s Pia Toscano. How did she approach you with the song?

Aubrey O’Day: We actually met in the studio a while ago and I fell in love with her talent and genuine heart!  She wrote a great, pop summer anthem and I’m so happy to be the voice conveying her message on the track!

TAC: It is a little different than what we’re used to from you. Does it have the same pop-based feel as the other songs you are currently putting together for your next album? How would you describe the sound so far as a whole?

Aubrey O’Day: My sound is a bit more R&B/Pop throughout the album, but I love when an album cohesively takes you through a ride of pushing dif styles of music an artist is capable of!  

TAC: This may be a little random, but most people don’t know that you also collaborated with Donnie Wahlberg in 2009 on a track called I Got It. (We know and we love it). Check out the iTunes preview here. How did that come about and what was it like working with Donnie?

Aubrey O’Day: Donnie is great!  We had met through a tour DK [Danity Kane] did with New Kids [On The Block], and we remained friends throughout it!  The song was fun to record and I love being able to perform with artists I looked up to as a kid. 

TAC: In addition to your singing career, you’ve also been on reality TV, Broadway, modeled, acted, and designed. Is there anything you don’t do? Seriously. Is there anything else that you would like to add to that list?

Aubrey O’Day: I would like to write a book!  I have always been the girl who will try anything once, and if I like it I usually try to become good at it. That’s just the way I was built.  

 TAC: We’ve also heard buzz on a Danity Kane Reunion. What are your thoughts on that?

Aubrey O’Day: I would get back with DK the second the other girls wanted to. Those girls are sisters to me and I will always cherish our time together, and hope for a future reunion. 

TAC: Oh yeah, and another word on the street is that you also have a Las Vegas show in the works. Can you tell us more about that? How about taking that to Atlantic City next?

Aubrey O’Day: I’d actually love to have its home in Atlantic City!  AC or Vegas provide great environments to let new stage creations shine & build relationships with all of the wonderful fans that come through on vacations!  It’s like being on tour minus the grueling travel!  

Someone needs to take note and get on that! Aubrey O’Day residency in AC, heck yeah.

Get to Epic Saturday at The Pool After Dark this weekend and convince her to stay. Doors open at 9 p.m. Pricing starts at $20.
