Ashley Parker Angel: “I think I’m done” with reality TV

One of the cast members of the first broadcast TV reality series, Making the Band, says he’s finished with reality television. Ashley Parker Angel, who was most recently seen spawning a kid named Lyric on his MTV series There and Back, told OK! Magazine, “I am a fan of reality television and I support it, but between the two shows, I’ve done around 70 episodes of reality TV. I think I’m done.”

He’s starring in Hairspray on Broadway until Dec. 15, and says that’s leading him to scripted projects. “This opportunity has really made me feel like I want to pursue acting as well. I’ve never done it before and I’m having a lot of fun.”

Having once toured with Britney Spears, he comments on her recent trials and tribulations, and says, “I honestly feel really bad for her situation. I like her and I think she has a really good heart, but I think she just got confused. I hope she gets help.”
