Either the New Kids on the Block Aren't Reuniting or They've Fired Danny!

Sad news for anyone hoping to relive 1990 in all its slap-braceleted, puff-painted glory: Despite today's reports and a fancy new Website that supposedly hints at a NKOTB reunion (it mostly hints to us that we need to upgrade to the latest version of Flash), it appears that, for now anyway, any talk of a tour is purely speculative. Blog Dlisted points us toward the following bulletin, posted by New Kid Danny Wood (the one who looks sort of like a monkey) on MySpace:

Hello to everyone. Hope all is well and everyone is enjoying the New Year. I wanted to address the rumors of the NKOTB Reunion Tour. There has been no talk of this and you are getting it from source directly. Never say never, and you can't believe everything you read. On another note my solo record will be released in Australia in March. There are a few new songs on it and I hope you guys will check it out. Thank you so much for your continued support. Dwood

So is it all an elaborate hoax? Is it, like Dlisted says, a crappy reality show looking for new New Kids on the Block? Or is the band getting back together, just without Danny (who, let's be honest, was always holding them back anyway)?
