*RUMOR: "I heard there's gonna be season 3 of MTB is it true? And where will that be appearing in Canada?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Kelly (rube_405)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: The 3rd season begins in January 2002 on MTV. To be honest we don't know what will be done in Canada because we hear there is no MTV there. We are not sure if another station will pick it up or what. If you know, let US know, Thanks!

*RUMOR: "I am a real big o-town fan and I heard that Erik (my baby) wants to go back to his "latino" roots and is starting to record a english/spanish album in his spare time with big names like Marc Anthony and Enriqure Iglesias?"
*SUBMITTED BY: ADRIANA (roxieramos)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Hmmm... we aren't sure about this one. We think it would be a great idea but we don't think Erik has the time right now to do any side projects because they have been touring and recording for their next album. It would be a great honor for him to work with such people and maybe in the future he will do something like that. But right now it seems very unlikely.

*RUMOR: "I heard that there is a Shelli web site? Is that true and if so what's the address to it?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Marranda (playgirlfou2nv)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: WOW! There are a few Shelli sites out there! There is "Simply Shelli" and a few others. Please visit our Links page and go to "other related O-Town sites" and there are a few links for Shelli sites. Also, those sites listed will probably have links on their sites to even more Shelli sites.

*RUMOR: "I heard awhile ago that "Love Should Be A Crime" is not an original song, but actually a cover of a song originally written by another group. This made me wonder, because the guys take so much pride in that song, and they never mentioned that it was a cover. Is it true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Char (Charlone)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: The song was written by Desmond Childs and a couple of others. The song was recorded by another group (can't remember which one) a couple years ago. They do take pride in that song because of the sound and their vocal talents on it. But the writer gave permission for them to record it. The other group who recorded it first did not write the song. The origianl writer is someone who has written for lots of big stars such as Ricky Martin and he has sole ownership of it. (along with his writing team).

*RUMOR: "I heard that MTB staged the whole thing... the part when Shelli turned Ashley down? I dont belive it becuz Ashley seemed really hurt...How could they do that.. Please help me find the TRUTH!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Meg
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: The same question was asked to Ashley on a radio station (Erika heard it herself) and Ashley said that the producers tend to edit a lot of important stuff out. He said it really happened and that he was really hurt by it. There is a lot of that part they didn't actually air. Some parts may seem staged and probably are. But Ashley said that wasn't one of them.

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob is leaving O-Town and becoming a solo artist"
*SUBMITTED BY: Jennifer (TRLSTAR228)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: None of the guys including Jacob would never leave O-Town unless they weren't having fun doing what they love and that is making music. But in many interviews the question "where do you see yourself in 10 years?" Always comes up and Jacob would like to see himself as a solo artist after the group O-Town is done and hopefully that wont be for another few years. And along with the rest of the guys Dan would like to become a producer, Erik a song writer, and Trevor and Ashley in the acting business. So none of the guys including Jacob are leaving the group.

*RUMOR: "My friend heard Mike Miller died in a crash or something around last week. He said he heard it on the news."
*SUBMITTED BY: William (Singingfreak17)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: We wouldn't even want to kid about a rumor like this. Mike Miller from the first season of MTB is alive thank god! And he is now in the group "LMNT" I actually saw him on T.V. today on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade performing and he looked healthy and happier then ever so I wish him and the rest of the group the best of luck and hope that they all stay safe!

*RUMOR:"I've heard that *NSYNC and O-Town don't get along...and that Kevin Richardson of BSB said that All or Nothing was a "Beautiful Song".
*SUBMITTED BY: Meghan (swimgal1760)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!/TRUE!: Though there has been some bad feelings between the two groups that has said to be all over now and they both respect each other so I don't see a reason why Nsync and O-Town wouldn't get along now. And it is true that Kevin from BSB did say that I believe in an interview on MTV or a radio station.

*RUMOR:"I heard that Dan was dating Shelli now. I heard this from an O-TOWN club. I don't think it's true, 'cuz I don't think Dan would do that to Ashley."
*SUBMITTED BY: Briana (otownslilangelswimga126981)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: I really don't think Dan would do this to Ashley or himself. They all know that having a girlfriend is hard in their situation. If Shelli said no to Ashley what would make you think she would say yes to Dan? He is in the same situation as Ashley. But as of right now I know Ashley and Shelli are seeing each other. Plus what about Cindy? Sorry but this rumor is just too ridiculous for me!

To confirm the rumor about Mike Morin not being their manager, many people have told us that it is NOT true. He has been seen at all the shows and him and Mike Cronin are still running things!

*RUMOR: "I went to the O-town concert, and I love them all, but when they were here in Toronto touring with Britney, they only came to one side of the stage and a lot of people found that really rude, and I heard they always do that, is that true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Meghan (Meghan_h)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: We really don't think any of them have anything against one side of a venue or favor one over the other. We all have seen them live and found that they give love to all sides of the arena. Maybe they may vibe off a certain side and stay on that side because that side is more hyped but we don't think it is premeditated.

*RUMOR: "I'm a huge O-town fan and I think I know a lot about them, but I just read that they are in the Guinness book of world records, and also that they almost died in a plane crash. Is either of this true? I read this from kiwibox.com, they usually have the right info on these type of things there. But can you give the deal on what happened?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Amanda (amanda52586)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: Back in 2000, the guys were on a plane and the wing caught fire somehow. They did make an emergency landing and no one was injured. They all sat together praying and we are glad that no one came out of this accident harmed. They are also in the book of world records for being the first new artist on a new label to have it's first single, "Liquid Dreams", go to #1 in it's first week of sales with very impressive sales figures.

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob and Erik visited a sick fan who was in an accident, at the Calgary childrens hospial! I heard it on a website."
*SUBMITTED BY: cadsnys
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: It is very possible that this happened because they do have big hearts and would do what they could to make a fan happy. If anyone has confirmation, let us know!

A rumor about LFO opening for Britney instead of O-Town was posted a few days ago. Some dates have both o-Town and LFO but since O-Town is doing some radio shows this winter, they may not always be a part of Brtney's tour. Please call your local radio station or venue for more info. Thanks Taylor. Radio show dates will be posted soon! Also many people have confirmed that the "Now That I Found You" song is by MY TOWN...not O-Town.

*RUMOR: "I heard in a yahoo club that Mike Morin is no longer their manager!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Jennifer (otowns_canadian_angel) and Diana (purplysis33)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: (we found out that it is NOT TRUE!)

ADDED November 4, 2001

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley dyed his hair not red but a different color. What is it?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Lots of people!
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: The word from many people who have attended the last couple of shows this week, Ashley's hair is like a platinum blonde. What is that? Kind of like whitish blonde! Thanks to Holly (holdoll12) for this pic!


*RUMOR: "I sadly missed watching O-Town on Montel but I'm in many O-Town clubs. I read something about some guy saying they sounded like the Beatles. Is this true!? If it is, that's awesome!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Jessica
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: A father of a fan was asked if he enjoys O-Town's music. He said he did and thought they were a good group and then made a comparison to the Beatles in reference to "Love Should Be A Crime".

*RUMOR: "I heard that there is supposed to be an O-Town video/dvd? Is this true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Angela
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: The tentative release date for this video/DVD is November 27. This live concert was taken on October 10th in New York. Just in time for the holidays!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Trevor got his nipples pierced. I heard it from a Trevor club. I wanna know if it's true, I love Trevor soo much, but I don't really think it would look right on him."
*SUBMITTED BY: Sarah
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Uh....anyone know about this one??!!

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-Town recorded a song called "Now That I Found You" from an O-Town Club. It was originally done by a country singer."
*SUBMITTED BY: Miranda - o_town_chic05
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: The song is recorded by MY TOWN not O-TOWN!!

ADDED November 3, 2001

*RUMOR: "I heard that they are making O-Town dolls like the Nsync ones and that they are coming out soon like November or December! I heard it from a newsletter that I get so I have no idea if it is true so plz plz tell me!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Nada - otowner01@aol.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: We certainly hope this is true and we can't wait for them to come out! We will try to look into this more to confirm!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob has a pet monkey!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Lots of people!
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: There are in fact pics of Jacob with a pet monkey on www.o-townkeys.com. What a cute little monkey!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley got Shelli pregnant!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Lots of people!
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: We honestly don't even know their dating status but pregnant? Doubt it! Until we hear Ash or Shelli say it, don't believe this one!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Dan Miller was ghetto or something. Is this true? It wouldn't bother me but I would like to know the truth!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Fatila - pinkangel1130@aol.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: NOT SURE!: Well there is nothing wrong with being ghetto as long as you don't go overboard! Ghetto is an attitude that can be cute if you play it right. And Dan has that quality but it makes him who he is. So depending on what you might think is "ghetto" you may say he is or is not. "Ghetto" can mean so many things so we can't really answer this without explaining it and that could take a long time to do!

ADDED October 30, 2001

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob is really rude to his fans and doesn't sign autographs or refuses to talk to anyone! I was really upset when I heard that since he's my fave!! I heard it from people that have met O-town and they said everyone was all nice to them except for Jake! :("
*SUBMITTED BY: Brittany - bluestarz4eva@hotmail.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: (well, it depends): We suppose everyone will have a different experience when meeting the guys. When I (Erika) met Jacob, he was really nice and talkative. If he was rude to someone, maybe it was a bad time for him. Like maybe he was in a rush or in a bad mood. Not that it is okay to be rude to fans or by any means an excuse. But I have met a lot of stars more than once and one time, they will be really cool and outgoing. Then the next time, they may be quiet and snotty. People are people. And although he should appreciate his fans, he may not always have the best attitude after meeting with hundreds of fans a day, performing, doing interviews, etc. So don't go by what other people say because people will have a different opinions on his attitude. You never know...if you meet him, he may be the sweetest guy ever.

*RUMOR: "I heard two rumors. One, that the boys were going to do a World Tour in the spring. (I really hope that this is true!!) I read that on another web page. Two, I heard that Britney is touring with LFO, not O-Town. I heard this on the radio in ATL, Georgia."
*SUBMITTED BY: Emma - jellybell0911@hotmail.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW AND FALSE!: We are sure they will have a World Tour soon but because of the many events circling the world at this time, there is no confirmed date. They will in fact be in Germany in December and February. As for LFO touring with Britney and not O-Town...that is not true. There are many promos for this tour and no change in the line up has been made unless LFO is joining the tour in addition to O-Town.

*RUMOR: "I was on the internet one day and I heard that Ashley died his hair bright red!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Sarah - drummer_chic98@hotmail.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: There is a pic of Ashley that makes it look like he has red hair when in fact, it is just the lighting!

*RUMOR: "Shelli got implants. I have absolutely NO idea if this is true, I just read it on a message board."
*SUBMITTED BY: Holly - holdoll12@hotmail.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: This is an example of a harsh rumor that we also have heard. But we don't know the truth behind it but let's not go spread this one because we don't want to offend anyone esp. Shelli.

*RUMOR: "At the Radio Music Awards, I noticed Jacob got two more tattoos. What are they of??"
*SUBMITTED BY: Kelly - burke_kellie@hotmail.com
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: Yes, Jacob got a new tatoo. One or two we don't know. What it is of...can't really tell. The pic below doesn't show it very well but if you look closely to his left elbow, there is where one of them is at.

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley and Shelli are back together? I heard they are pulling like a Britney and Justin thing? I really wanna know if this is true! Becuz I love AShley! I heard this from a Shelli site!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Megan
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: There are many rumors stating they are not together then you turn around and they say they are! This may be something only the two of them will ever really know. When I spoke to Shelli in August, she said she was just touring with the guys as their stylist on some summer dates. They are in fact very good friends. When Ashley is asked if has a girlfriend, he simply answers, "I'm dating someone." Is it Shelli or someone new? Truth is, we don't really know. Sorry!
