True story: Danielle Fishel and Lance Bass went to prom together. The two dated from 1999 to 2000 when both were at the height of their fame, and it turns out that their busy schedules proved problematic for attending school dances.
“When I was a senior in high school I asked my boyfriend at the time if he would go to prom with me, because my boyfriend at the time was Lance Bass. So I had to make sure his schedule would allow for prom,” Fishel reveals in a PopSugar video blog. “Unfortunately he told me no, because he was going to be in Japan and I was so sad.”
Don’t worry, “Boy Meets World” and ‘N Sync fans, because this story has a happy ending. A week later, Bass sent Fishel “three dozen roses in the mail with a card that said, ‘Plans have changed, I’ll be in town. Can I take you to prom? Check yes or no.’ And there were two little boxes!”
Fishel then took to Twitter to post photo proof that she and her boy band boyfriend really did go to prom together. Bass then tweeted back to his high school girlfriend, writing, “Wow! He sounds so romantic! … I’m feeling a prom theme for Girl Meets World in the making”
Of course, prom is where the romance ended for Fishel and Bass. He came out as gay in 2006 and is now dating model Michael Turchin, while she is currently engaged to Tim Belusko. Still, it’s wonderful that they’re still friends and hilarious that this happened to begin with.
