Talk about having some PTSD…
Aubrey O’Day tells Variety that working with ‘Making The Band’ creator Sean “Diddy” Combs was scary. It even left her with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
Reflecting on her time on the MTV series, O’Day says:
“Puff is a very difficult person to work with. Everything had to be perfect. I remember times where he looked at my toenails and was like, ‘What is your third toenail doing? Go get that sh– fixed before you walk into a room.’ Or we would be in rehearsals performing an hour-and-a-half set over and over and he would walk in for five minutes with a camera and say, ‘Aubrey, why are you sweating? You look like a wet dog. You’re the hot one, so do you think anyone wants to see that?’”
For instance, she adds:
“We were scared to death with what would happen with Puff each day. There was just no room for error. Diddy was one of the most intense people you could ever work with. I experienced everything from race [remarks] to sexism and a lot of it was scary. I have a very strong mom who wasn’t necessarily a nurturer and I remember one time as a kid I hit my knee and as it was bleeding everywhere, she said, ‘Suck it up Aubrey!’ That was proper training for what I would experience on ‘Making the Band.’”
In addition, Aubrey O’day says that Diddy’s behavior will not be tolerated at all these days, adding,
“Diddy’s a father, so hopefully he’s learned things about the way that you handle women and has more compassion for women now.”
Despite the struggles she faced during the show, O’Day says the experience taught her not to depend on anyone and she’s excited about the return of “Making the Band.”
Subsequently, sounds like Diddy has a problem with the way he talks to women. Maybe he’s a changed man! Who knows?
