'O-Town' -- Ashley's Rejection 'Really Hurt'

1/20/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The boys of O-Town ain't one bit happy with ex-member Ashley Parker-Angel -- in fact, Erik-Michael Estrada tells TMZ, they were "really hurt" when Ashley officially bailed on the upcoming reunion.

Erik expressed his disappointment in L.A. yesterday -- telling us, if Ashley really wanted to rejoin O-Town ... he would have figured out a way to "multi-task" the reunion and his acting career.

Erik says he and the rest of the band have all come to terms with Ashley's rejection -- but explains, "I would just think he would want to come on board and be a part of it ... but he doesn't and that's cool."

You can only say that like it's a bad thing (that you weren't a backstreet boy or nsync), if you were o-town:P

I thought that reality show was done and cancelled years ago. At least Ashley has some common sense on not dragging down his career and move forward to bigger and better things.

Psh. O-Town doesn't need Ashley, he needs O-Town. O-Town will be fine without that douche holding them back. I would buy a new album from them.

If nothing else you have to give him credit for moving on with his career and finding work outside of having to rehash a gimmick band. I have more respect for him saying no than to do the easy thing and saying yes.

Lou not only stole their money, he also stole their common sense. It is kinda sad actually. At a time when they should have been going to school and deciding what to do with their lives, this fat, disgusting child molester comes along and tells them they can be stars. Not only did it derail their lives, it essentially destroyed them because they are still living in that fantasy even now as grown men.

LOL, you haters never take a day off do you? O-Town is a successful boy band from Orlando and they have accomplished more in their lives than any of you loser haters who have nothing better to do but sit around and trash talk anyone who ever made it in their lives. I can't stand haters. I have no use for them.
