Worrying news from the Atomic Kitten reunion talks: there's still a prospect of an Atomic Kitten reunion.
There is, however, a sticking point:
PLANS to re-form Atomic Kitten have turned into a stand-off between Jenny Frost and Kerry Katona.The reunion is built around a TV series, and there's no way this is an attempt to raise interest in the comeback before they start shooting.
Jenny, 34, refuses to rejoin the band if founder member Kerry, 31, is going to be in it too.
You'd have to wonder how much interest there'd be, relatively, in a reunion featuring nation's sweetheart-turned-nation's cokehead-turned-nation's comeback queen-turned-and-turned-again Katona compared to one without her; generally, a Katona-less Kitten would have the star power of a Take That consisting mostly of Donalds and Oranges.
Still, there's work being done behind the scenes:
Now manager Martin O'Shea is said to be frantically trying to compromise.How, exactly, would that work? Katona in the band, but has to wear a mask? Katona in the band, but not allowed to sing or dance in time with the other two? Getting the origianl Sugababes in instead?
