She is an American singer-songwriter, member of the duo band Dumblonde, actress, fashion designer, reality television personality, fashion model, and a former member of the girl group Danity Kane. On December 15, 2008, Fox News reported that O’Day attended a party accompanied with her girlfriend/lover, according to an anonymous friend in attendance. When questioned by UsMagazine.com regarding the gay rumors, O’Day did not confirm nor deny the speculation about her sexuality, and once again stated that she could not say “one way or another” what her sexual orientation is at this point in her life. In 2009, while on the show Chelsea Lately, when asked about being bisexual, she replied, “Generally, I don’t like to label myself…I want to find someone I’m passionate about, and I don’t want to limit myself to one segment of the population.” She is a gay rights advocate and chose the “Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network” (GLSEN) as her charity for Celebrity Apprentice.
