Hide was Namie's dancer already though.

Maro used to be Maki Goto and Koda's dancer but now he's permanently Ayu's... until he decides to move on. Not exactly that big of a deal. Same kinda goes for Naoto who was with Maki Goto before becoming an EXILE/J Soul Brothers member.

I noticed that I hadn't seen Bancho's name in a while, and I see she's listed as "former". Was any reason given for Ayu's switch in nail artists?

I don't think there was ever a reason stated for it.

Bancho seemed to just want to move on to different things, so her assistant [Minazo aka Shingo Sano] became Ayu's chief nailist. His nails aren't as well done as Bancho's though, hahaha.

It's like how Ayu's hair and makeup artist (Keizo Kuroda) switched to a different set of people after (miss)understood. If her look changed at all since then, it's because she has Gori and Kazuyoshi Takahashi (ZACC, part of this one elite salon and the inventor of some scissor technique lol) now. Fun fact, Keizo and Bancho are on the same creative team, 'three peace' with Ayu's costume designer.

If you look at a lot of Keizo's clients, they tend to look like Ayu from 2000-2006, haha. Speaking of which, Ayu's stylist also changed after 2006 onward. It's Kei Ito now, but I forgot the name of the former one. That person also works with a lot of the artists that Keizo works with, so they look even more like Ayu, haha. (alan worked with both of them, I think) FYI about a stylist, they're the ones who choose clothes for an artist/celebrity to pick from for a photoshoot or public event... usually.

It looks like GO-MI explained why he left the dance team?

Wow, it seems that Maro deleted every single one of his entries before the 'scandal' on his blog.

He probably doesn't want reporters to dig up anything that could turn into another scandal.

Of course, it probably showed something about his life that made it too clear this was fake. Just like when Shuya's blog was pulled for awhile when he said he was gay.

You really like picking scenarios out that, while not completely unrealistic, are very unlikely, don't you?

Many people delete their social networking accounts when they gain media attention - simply because, without going through every single post, they can't know if they may have posted something that could be turned into a scandal by a nosy reporter. Maro recently turned from a mere face-less dancer to a D-Lister, reporters are snooping around looking for anything that could be turned into a scandal, be it an embarrassing photo, a rude remark...deleting old posts is the obvious choice and there is no reason to believe it has anything to do with your "fake" theory. This is common behavior when first exposed to the media. Musicians, actors, reporters, politicians, they all tend to delete their former social networking profiles the moment they gain more media attention.

I'm pretty sure he also believes that Kennedy was murdered by Castro himself, because both of them were gay. They had a very intimate relationship and not to forget they shared same experiences from the past, 'cos both were sexually abused as childrens (what makes them gay). But Kennedy doesn't wanted to go public and had this fake marriage with Jackie, Castro was jealous and shoot him. End of story.
