Kimberly Wyatt wants to shed Pussycat identity

London: The Pussycat Dolls` former member Kimberly Wyatt has reportedly come out of her band`s identity and feels she is now appreciated for herself, rather than just as a former member of the band.

Wyatt who now appears as a judge on Britain TV show "Got To Dance" feels like she has finally stepped out of the shadow of her former band to be appreciated in her own right.

"It`s taken many years to shed my Pussycat Identity that I`d become so familiar with. I just wanted to be the captain of my own destiny, I didn`t want to have to rely on other people," quoted Wyatt as saying.

Wyatt has been spending time in Britain because of her relationship with model Max Rogers and she says he is the greatest man and complements her very well.

"He`s the greatest man. It`s the chemistry that we share, great conversation, I find his views quite fascinating. And having a gorgeous man that makes me feel sexy does wonders," she said.

"I`m a dreamer and he`s a logical thinker, so through the conversations and connections we have, he makes me feel a bit more of reality and not drifting off into the stars. And he does make me laugh," added Wyatt.
