Eden’s Crush member Ana Maria checked in with fans on her official site’s message board on Tuesday. Ana addressed the death of TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes as well as how her solo project is going, while thanking fans for their support. Ana writes, “I was very saddened by the deaths of Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes and her companions [Note: none of the companions died] in Honduras. I spent Sunday evening praying for them and their families. I am a huge TLC fan, and have been for a while. I was reminiscing the other day, thinking of all the songs that bring back memories, like ‘Baby, Baby, Baby’ and ‘Creep’, ‘Red Light Special’, ‘Waterfalls’, etc. So many great songs! They were and are and will be an inspiration to me always. They are proof that anything is possible!”
Ana Maria of Eden’s Crush offered words of encouragement for a fan with somewhat low self-esteem who was unhappy with how she looked in her photo taken with the singer that was posted on her official website. Ana said, “Hi, Natassia! I read your post and I want you to know that I think the picture is wonderful, Which is why I put it up on my site. You’re a beautiful girl, with a beautiful name and I’m very proud to know that you’re an EC fan. However, if you would like me to remove it, please let me know and I will ask Leslie [the webmaster] to take the picture down. I’m sorry if it made you uncomfortable in any way. We wanted you to see the picture.” The fan was honored to have the photo up and said it was ok for Ana to leave it on her official site.

I had so much fun yesterday! Thanks to everyone who came to support the cause and watch the games… as you might have heard I didn’t play B-ball, although I attempted to shoot a couple hoops during warm-ups (out of 20, I think I finally made one) just for fun, ’cause although I like Basketball I haven’t played for like, 8 yrs.”

Fans on the Popstarsusa.com message board have been worried that the DNS errors over at sister message board WeAreNow.com was a sign that the group had shut down the site ahead of a breakup, but one of the fans heard back from the girl running the site, Leslie, who assures everyone that they’re switchin’ servers, and things will most likely be back up by the end of the weekend.
Ana Maria of Eden’s Crush left a special thanks to fans on her WeAreNow.com message board with a special thanks to Ana Love and her friends, who waited outside the Hollywood Bowl in November beginning at 4 a.m. for a chance to meet the girls from the band and give them letters and Reese’s candy. Ana wrote:
Hola! Just want to let you know that, yes, we did get your letters. Thank you and for the candy too! You guys are so sweet for waiting outside so early… just be careful that you don’t get sick, it was a yucky day and raining a lot. Hope you enjoyed the performance anyway! We did! God bless.
Well, take care and thanks again. Happy New Year.

And thanks to fans like you, we are able to fulfill our dreams and desires which in return makes us happy. So, thanks again and God bless. Keep posting and dreaming.”
