*RUMOR: "From a lot of O-Town websites I've heard quotes about Ash sayin how cute he thinks Cori is....then someone on your 'things that make you go hmmm...' said that Ash and Cori messed around, is this true, and WHO IS CORI?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Mandy (ashisaqtpi8181)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: Cori is a girl they met on Making the Band, season one. She is an aspiring singer. They didn't actually mess around as he was with Shelli at the time. But, him and Mike Miller (a finalist now in the group LMNT) thought she was cute and tried to see who she liked more.

*RUMOR: "Ok I read the thing about Trevor's tattoo but on the 1st episode of MTB, he said his dad would kill him if he got one. Does anyone have a picture so i can see it?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Meredith (jczbaby71)
Well, we don't have a pic, but if anyone out there does, please email us at otfanpage@yahoo.com. Thanks! (And by the way, we heard this info from MTV...that he had a tattoo... and I think some other fans)

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-Town was on a cereal commercial... I think it was TRIX ...can anyone help me out cuz I wanna know if there is so I can watch it...please let it be true."
*SUBMITTED BY: Laura (dragonfly050)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: We haven't seen or heard anything but we don't think it is true because we would have heard more about it by now from official teams like www.o-town.com or the street team.

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-town was going to be touring in the states this fall. Is this true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Joni (tokay_tiger)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE/DON'T KNOW!: O-Town will definitely tour in the U.S. this year but the exact time is still unknown. They might wait until their next CD comes out so that they will have new material to perform. As soon as any tour dates become available, U.S. or any other area, you know we will have it posted ASAP!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley only got into the band because of his "dreamy name" and his good looks. I heard this from a few websites. Is it true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Ashley (Livi77)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: Although Ashley does have a dreamy name and good looks, his talent is what got him into O-Town! Of course his looks did help as they were also looking for an "image". But if he didn't impress the judges with his singing, charisma, and guitar playing, his pretty face and name would not have been enough to get him into the group. One of the judges did say that Ashley Angel is the perfect "rock star" name but his talent was what won everyone over!

*RUMOR: "My friend told me that O-Town might have a contest and in the end a few girls will end up living with them for a little while. She read it on a website and that's all the info she got on it at the moment but are they really going to do that?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Whitany
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: Well, they had a similar contest shown on MTB two weeks ago where a GUY got to live and tour with them for a week. As for girls, there will be a contest shown tomorrow on MTB where someone wins a date with them. But as for living with them, we doubt there will be such a contest.

*RUMOR: "Is that Thania (season 1) in the Calling's video "Whereever You Go"? The girl in the video looks exactly like Thania from season 1."
*SUBMITTED BY: Nancelle (NOTOWNFAN)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: I (Erika) haven't seen the video in its entirety so I have no idea if that is her or not. If someone can send us confirmation, we will post it. Thanks! (otfanpage@yahoo.com)

Ok we tried to update this page last week. But our host had some problems where it didn't save the info even though it said it was saved. So we lost a few rumors that we posted from last week. But we will add some new ones we have now. Sorry it took so long to update this page!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley is becoming a model!I'm not sure where I heard this from (sorry). It just was somewhere on-line! I'm dyin to know."
*SUBMITTED BY: Mandy (ashisaqtpi8181)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: At this time, we do not know if that is true. If it is, he will probably not leave O-Town to do it but maybe do it as a side job kinda like Mandy Moore. He posed for some awesome pics recently that we very model-like but that doesn't mean he wants to do it full time. Although he does have a look for it!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Ashley had a dog named Chang and right before Christmas he had to put the dog to sleep, and none of the other guys found out until he said something in an interview. Please tell me if this is true!!!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Kerri
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: Ashley's dog was put to sleep recently. To read an exerpt regarding this issue, click HERE to be connected to an article we posted a few weeks ago.

*RUMOR: "I saw the previews for the next making the band and there is a rumor going around that they are letting another member join. That's why there was somebody like trying to "make the band".
*SUBMITTED BY: Diana (princessdd24)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: The guys were actually judging a contest. Here is more info about that forthcoming episode:
The tables are turned on O-Town, as it's their turn to try “making the band.” The lads act as judges in a radio-station contest, then groom the winning singer for an audition while he comes to live with them for a week. -From TV guide

Ok so EVERYONE is talking about Erik and his supposed girlfriend from the group Express. We are not confirming or denying anything but it is true that this rumor is going around. Her name is Allison but please understand that we do not know or care who they are dating so we are not going to get invlolved in this rumor. If it is true, good for Erik. If it isn't, we hope that he is happy no matter what.

ADDED January 6, 2002
Ok as an O-Town fan, we should know a lot about them but some things we just aren't sure of. Lots of you have asked if Trevor has a twin sister cuz it said so on MTV. But we know he doesn't have any sister's listed as the same age as him. So if you know that he DOES, we will post it. Otherwise, we will say NO, he doesn't have a twin.

Lots of people have also asked about Ashley with some facial hair! Yes, he is growing some hair on his face. It isn't as quite noticeable as Dan's but it is looking good!

Kristen from Loving O-Town says that Ashley's new car is a black BMW. Thanks!

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob only likes his fans for the money. Is that true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Amanda (vabaily1)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: Jacob is not like that at all. Of course money is a huge factor with being an entertainer but he has always wanted the fans to like him for his talent. His biggest thing is not being a teen idol but being able to make music and share his talent with the world. Jacob is a very down to Earth person.

*RUMOR: "I heard that Jacob had his belly button pierced! I heard it a while ago and have no idea if it is true or not but loads of Jacob fans keep going on about it!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Anon - (winnie37)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Does anyone know the CONFIRMED TRUTH about this one? Email us or use the form below. Thanks!

*RUMOR: "I heard from a friend that the band would not date a fan? Is that true please help me!!!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Jessica (JJ_4ever)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: Well let us just say that it would be hard to date a fan. That is because they would want someone to like them for who they are and not what they are. But we don't think that dating fans is necessarily ruled out. They never know if the fan they meet somewhere is actually the woman they are lookin for. It is something that is not impossible or unlikely but they might not just date any fan who walks up to them and asks for a date! :) It is a catch 22!

ADDED January 2, 2002
Thanks Melissa (tmsmith426) for telling us about Ashley's car that someone asked about what he drives. She confirmed what we posted about his red Eclipse but he also got a black Navigator from Transcon but it was taken away when they left the company. So what is he driving now? Anyone?

ADDED December 20, 2001

Thanks to everyone who told us that Swirl 360 was the original group who recored "Love Should Be a Crime" before O-Town did.

*RUMOR: "I HEARD THAT O-TOWN IS NEVER COMING TO BOSTON BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT THEY DONT LIKE IT FOR SOME REASON. I HEARD THIS FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE AND ONE PERSON HAD AN ARTICLE!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Wendy (ESOLIS110)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Well we don't think they discriminate against cities and they are not the ones who actually make their schedules. But a lot of us feel that they don't visit a city/state/country nearly half as much as they are in New York or Pennsylvania. lol. We are sure they will head over to Boston as soon as they can. It is a major city. But they usually make stops in places in which they are in high demand. There is a lot more to it than just wanting to perform in a city. There are other issues in regards to management, the city itself, the venues they can play in, dates they are available, etc. We don't know what that article said but they do not decide where they can play.

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-Town is recording a song with Janet Jackson and it would be on their next album. I hope its true because I love O-Town and Janet and it would be great for them to do a song together."
*SUBMITTED BY: Katie (katie1891)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: We haven't heard anything about that and although it would be an honor for them to work with her, at this time we don't know if it will happen.

*RUMOR: "I heard from some other sites that Ashley had a black lincoln navigator, but then heard the he had a silver eclipse. which one does he have?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Shannon (otownzangel513)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Can anybody help us with this one? Use the form below if you know the answer. On older episodes of MTB, Ashley was driving a red car. (Eclipse was it?)

*RUMOR: "Is it true that Erik and Trevor got arrested in New York? My friend heard this from a yahoo club. "
*SUBMITTED BY: Ann (msattitude269)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: Thanks to OtOwNzDrEaMcHiCa for letting us know what happened: "the guys were coming back from the show at the MSG. their hotel was in the middle of a block with a bunch of theatres on it. since the cabs only drop ppl off at the corners, trev had to walk. there were a bunch of fans waiting for him who wanted autographs so he was wakling towards the hotel and signing autographs at the same time. when he gets near the hotel, a girl asks him to sign his pants. the doorman tries to tell trevor to just keep moving so trevor tried. at that point, erik came walking up the other side of the street with a bunch of fans behind him. when him and trevor met up, there was a HUGE group of fans. the doorman got angry and called the cops. when the cops arrived, they said something nasty to trevor and shoved him. trevor said something back to the cop. when erik came over and saw how upset trev was, he got really angry too. instead of saying something to the cop, he turned and punched a wall. mrs miller said that "erik's hand was fine and the wall was fine too" so there's a bit of humor in that. after the fans saw what happened, they did what they should've done by leaving." As far as we know, this is what happened.

*RUMOR: "Well I heard from a couple people that now P. Diddy is opening up for Britney cuz she like... fired them or some crap. Is this true????? I really hope not."
*SUBMITTED BY: lava (xxmyluv2yaxx)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE/FALSE!: TRUE: P. Diddy is opening up for Britney on the last two days of her tour. FALSE: O-Town was not fired! They were only on her tour til the middle of December because they have other commitments. Those include radio shows and they are also going to Germany next week. Therefore, O-Town cannot be with Britney on those make up dates in Florida and Washington, DC.

*RUMOR: "I heard two things and I have one question. I heard that Dan has a girlfriend (which was in a newsletter my friend has) and that someone broke into Ashley's yahoo ID thing which is like nameless4tv or something along those lines and I wanted to know if you if that was really his adress or not, and finally how did you get Mike's #???"
*SUBMITTED BY: Erin
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: Dan is supposedly seeing someone. Everyone hears about it and has seen her with him. Don't ask us who it is cuz we don't know. We have heard different names and descriptions! Also, we don't know if it is true that someone broke into Ashley's Yahoo ID. But according to a yahoo club, he posts in there with that name. And Erika got Mike Morin's phone number from him. I met him a few months ago and we were talking and then he gave me his card. Sorry, I can't give the # out. I know you didn't ask but lots of other people have. :)

*RUMOR: "I heard this from a website but i dont know if its true or not. I heard that O-Town hates their name and they were originally going to be called Brotherhood or something like that. "
*SUBMITTED BY: Erin
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: We are not sure about the Brotherhood name but it is true that they don't like the name O-Town. But people were calling them that even before they had a ame because they were in Orlando and it just stuck.

*RUMOR: "I heard on a BSB site, that the producers of "Drowning" are suing the producers of "All Or Nothing" for some copyright thing....please tell me its not true! "
*SUBMITTED BY: Stephanie (virgo85_)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Ok, "Drowning" was in fact recorded before "All or Nothing". YES, it was. It was supposed to be on the "Black and Blue" CD. As for the suing part, that seems a little ridiculous but in this business, it sounds like something they would do. But this would have nothing to do with BSB so don't start hating on them. This is between the producers. Only a few bars in the intro are similar so if it is true, who knows if it will even be worth it. Even Trevor (Erika heard it herself from him) said it does sound alike but there is a note or two that is different so there shouldn't be a huge issue over it. He even says he likes that song! If any of you have confirmation on the suing part, let us know. Thanks!

ADDED December 8, 2001
A confirmation about the one that Trevor has a new tatoo that says "Money, money, money". It seems as though this was posted on MTV during the WFT video where they scroll facts about the group. Thanks everyone who told us!

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-town never refuse to sign autographs and I also heard that O-Town's next CD is gonna be mostly r&b?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Hiba (redheadarab81586)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: According to something one of heard straight from one of the members, the next album will have more of a ROCK feel. We do anticipate there being lots of R&B flavor as well. As for autographs, speaking from personal experience, they have all been very gracious with taking pics and signing stuff. Only once was Erik kinda not in the mood to take pics but other than that, he was always very nice. They do what they can to make the fans happy. But sometimes they can't due to people pulling them away if they are being rushed.

*RUMOR: "I'm a huge fan of O-Town. Recently, I read in a magazine that O-Town and N'Sync are not getting along so well. Beside N'Sync's picture it wrote that 'We'd like to see O-Town grow beard like this'. Is it true that's why O-Town grow their beard?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Minnie
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: Regardless of personal feelings the two groups may have, they do respect each other as artists. And anyways, DAN had his beard before LANCE did so who copied who? j/k. No hard feelings toward NSync but the media likes to make up group rivalries. And if they did in fact say that, they are just bitter about how O-Town came together and that they became successful so quickly due to MTB.

*RUMOR: "I heard at a website that Erik had a thing for Ivette from Eden's Crush and now they're dating? Please tell me this isn't true because Eden's Crush is REALLY unpopular."
*SUBMITTED BY: Nadia (otownsfantasy)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FALSE!: Rumor had it that the two were dating and this was said a LONG time ago. When Erik was asked about this, he replied, "We haven't even met Eden's Crush!" The two groups have since met but no, they didn't date each other. And NO...he is not dating Alicia Keys either.

*RUMOR: "I heard that Erik smokes!! I really don't like smokers and I hope he isn't so he can still be my fave. My friend told me this."
*SUBMITTED BY: Jessica (otowngrly269)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Hmmm.... we here at the O-TFP have never actually seen him smoke or have seen pics of him with a cigarette. Smoking is a bad habit but we don't know if any of the guys have a thing for it. We would hope not! Sorry, but we just don't know about this but we hope it's NOT TRUE!

*RUMOR: "I heard that the guys don't like Britney Spears and that they think she is slutty. I like Britney and I was hoping that they liked her cause I mean they are on tour with her (i heard this from a britney site)"
*SUBMITTED BY: Danielle (agirlallfordanandjermz)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: JUST RIDICULOUS!: Trevor has ALWAYS loved Britney...even before he was in O-town! They are absolutely flattered that they were invited to tour with her because they think she is a great performer. Jacob may not choose her music as his fave but he does respect her as an artist. On season 3 of MTB, you will see how they met her and how they reacted to finding out they would tour with her. If you saw this on a Britney site, it was probably just a person who dislikes O-Town so that people who read it will dislike them too.

ADDED December 1, 2001

*RUMOR: "I heard on Kiss FM that the Backstreet Boys really recorded 'Drowning' for their Black and Blue album so they thought O-town had copied off of them with 'All or Nothing!' I heard it on the radio and they said it was Trevor saying it but it didn't sound like him so I dunno if they staged it or not!"
*SUBMITTED BY: Emily(*asH's GurL)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: It is true that BSB was going to add 'Drowning' to the Black and Blue CD. Trevor mentioned that also when I met him. But keep in mind that neither BSB or O-Town worte Drowning or AON. The producers of each song came up with the music and no one really "copied" anyone. They just had the same ideas and only one part of the song is similar. Trevor says there is no hard feelings with the songs. Drowning was recorded first but AON was released first.

*RUMOR: "I heard that O-town is coming out with a new cd very soon. Is it true? If it is please tell when it is coming out?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Marianne (prettygirl92088)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: Although there is no date set for this release, it will more than likely be mid to late next year. We don't really know. But we DO know that they are working on new material and most of the songs will have more of a "rock" sound. They may release another single from their first CD before the new one comes out.

*RUMOR: "On the O-town live in New York DVD they don't show the guy's solo's! Is it true?"
*SUBMITTED BY: Zuleikha (makaveli_girlie)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: TRUE!: It is true that their solo's are not featured on the new DVD/VHS. That would have added about 30 extra minutes to the footage. Since the solos they did were songs by other artists, they would have to have permission from them to have the rights to record this and that would cost a lot of money and there is a lot of legal paperwork involved. But the DVD is still awesome and they did such a great job! (Thanks Nicole and Amanda for further clarification)

*RUMOR: "I heard that Trevor got a tattoo that says "money, money, money". I can't remember where I got this from though..."
*SUBMITTED BY: Janet (hyper_4_u)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: DON'T KNOW!: Where did you hear it was? There are no tattoos on his arms so if it is somewhere else, we haven't seen it! LOL. And we haven't heard any confirmation on this one yet.

*RUMOR: "I heard that after November O-Town will no longer be opening for Britney Spears that LFO is. I heard this on the radio and I'm hoping its not true, b/c i spent alot of money on tickets for the 12/2 concert just to see o-town! "
*SUBMITTED BY: Lauren (Ashsangl8181)
*TRUE, FALSE, DON'T KNOW, OR JUST RIDICULOUS?
*ANSWER: FASLE!: It is true the LFO will join Britney when O-Town is doing Radio shows in December but O-town will be on tour with her until 12/10.
