Rise to stardom

She left high school and saw the Pussycat Dolls on MTV and heard they were auditioning for a new group member. Melody went to the audition and was welcomed aboard in December 2003. As with the other Dolls, she is a salaried employee of Interscope Records. Her "doll name" is Baby Doll (as she is the youngest member of The Pussycat Dolls).
In mid-July 2006 Melody publicly announced that she plans to begin a solo career.
