Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : Thank You .. I love you too and I'm close with all the guys but I'd probably have to say on the road that Eric and I get along the best on the road because of our sense of humor....
DishDiva : Sweetgirl02 Asks: If you weren't singing, what would you like to be doing? Luv ya lots!
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : but i'm close with all the guys I would be 'trying' to sing and I would be trying to break into the business I'd be doing either music or acting...
DishDiva : Taylor asks: Tell us how you got discovered!
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : I found out about the National Talent search that they were doing for this show and I flew to Las Vegas Nevada
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : From there I auditioned with a lot of guys , about 150 guys, and I auditioned to be part of the 25 semi-finalists to compete in the five spots in this new band
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : Thats when I met Lupe Roman and I guess that's when he discovered me ... .
DishDiva : Silly Asks: Where do you get your drive to succeed from?
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : I think I've always beene really motivated all through school and in my jobs and I've always wanted to be the best and I've just been naturally competative and I think that carried through here . It was a lot in the way I was raised .
DishDiva : Guest_i_love_you_ashley Asks: Who does the most talking on the phone??? Have a good summer.
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : I'll put it this way...We ALL run out of minutes on our cell phone and we occassionally all get our cell phones turned off cause we use the maximum allowable minutes possible...
DishDiva : ashleys_angel_3 Asks: Ashley, was all the shower footage from one shower? Luv ya. Tara & Dana

Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : I would shower and they would come in and shoot while I was in the shower...
DishDiva : Guest_OTOWNSaNGEL Asks: Whats the craziest thing a fan has done to meet you ?
Guest_Ashley_Parker_Angel : We were in Canada and these girls were trying to think of a different gift that they could get us that would stand out and they got us a hamster and they called us the O'Town official mascot and we've had fans rent rooms in our hotels I'd say the hamster is definitely up there as the original idea from fans.
