Pretty Ricky Want Reality Show To Find New Member
R+B/hip-hop band PRETTY RICKY are looking to follow in the footsteps of the PUSSYCAT DOLLS and launch a reality TV show to help in their search for a new member. The Grind With Me hitmakers are looking for a replacement for singer Pleasure who left the group in October (07) to pursue a solo career. And remaining bandmates Slick 'Em, Baby Blue and Spectacular are hoping to launch a U.S.-wide search for a new addition - if TV networks choose to pick up the programme. But Baby Blue insists the new member must meet their high standards if they are to have a chance of joining Pretty Ricky. He tells MTV.com, "We're a hip-hop and R+B group. The three of us rap, and the fourth member has to be a singer just to keep the music consistent. "(But) it's more about (whether a new member can) be another brother and just cope with all our family issues or whatever. "And they got to be a woman magnet. They got to know how to deal with these ladies, 'cause that's one thing we got to do. That's why the music is all about women, because Pretty Ricky loves the ladies and the ladies love Pretty Ricky." Pop outfit the Pussycat Dolls launched a nationwide search for a seventh member on a show entitled, Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, in April 2007 - but winner Asia Nitollano quit after just three months to go solo.
