The impending Smashing Pumpkins reunion will not include founding bassist D'arcy Wretzky. She said that the other three members have decided to use someone else for a tour that she added will happen beginning in July.“My apologies to all of the Smashing Pumpkins fans out there who are excited about this oncoming reunion tour of the original members of the band," she said via text to Blast Echo. "I know this is a huge disappointment for me, as well, but it’s not going to happen [with me]. I only just found about yesterday that the band has decided to go with a different bass player.”
That's sad, but I don't think she's played in a band for 20 years now right? Prob doesn't have the skills anymore.

It's seems her life has been very chaotic during the last ten years
After many years out of the spotlight, Wretzky resurfaced in July 2009 by calling in unexpectedly on Chicago's Q101 FM with Ryan Manno. During the interview, she stated that she was not healthy enough to be a musician, and repeatedly professed her admiration for Monkees frontman Davy Jones who was known to be an early romantic crush of Wretzky's. She also discussed her appreciation for the band Silversun Pickups who have a sound influenced by the early Gish era of The Smashing Pumpkins . She also mentioned that she then lived on a farm in Michigan, that she had briefly lived in Austin, Texas, sometime during the previous decade, and that former fiancé Wendell Green had died.
Wretzky was jailed in February 2011 for missing four court dates related to a ticket she received for failing to control her horses. She spent six days in jail. She was also arrested on February 7, 2011, on a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge in South Haven, Michigan.
In 2013, Wretzky's relationship with Corgan remained tense. In September 2014, she tried to re-establish contact with him.
In 2016, Wretzky revealed that she is working on her own music, release dates or recording still remains unknown as of 2017.
In August 2016, Billy Corgan posted a video to Facebook acknowledging that he and Wretzky had recently reestablished communication saying "I’ve been in communication with D’arcy for the first time in 16 or 17 years, it’s awesome to have my friend back." Corgan emphasized that this did not necessarily mean the band was getting back together instead insisting "my primary interest in the old band was us having good relationships again."

Machina is getting re-mixed/re-released soon with its originally intended double-album tracklisting. Should be good! Billy's been posting about it on Instagram.
