'Pretty Little Liars' Actress Troian Bellisario Engaged To 'Suits' Star

February 25th, 2014 1:17am EST
Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams
Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario and her longtime boyfriend, Suits Star Patrick J. Adams, have gotten engaged.

The acting couple, who began dating in 2011, first met in 2009 while rehearsing for a play. The two stars have been able to successfully make things work despite having to keep up a long-distance relationship. The two spend a lot of time apart, with Troian, 28, based in Los Angeles for her ABC Family channel show and Patrick, 32, in Toronto most of the time, where "Suits" is filmed.

"It's constant coordinating. It's really hard to be away from the person you love," Troi...

Ashley Benson Says She Won't Be Tempted To Take Drugs Or Go Topless On Screen

Ashley Benson Says She Won't Be Tempted To Take Drugs Or Go Topl
Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson says there are two things that she draws the line for in her life: drugs and nudity.

The 24-year-old actress landed the cover spot on the March isue of Cosmopolitan magazine, and in her accompanying interview the actres says that there's a slim chance that she may strip off for a role sometime in the future, but only if its tasteful.

"I never want to do nudity that's gratuitous," she says. "Girls look so much better in lingerie or a t-shirt and leave the rest up to the imagination. I make it clear that I have a line."

‘Pretty Little Liars’ S4E12 Recap: The Stalker King

August 28th, 2013 10:00pm EDT
Pretty Little Liars
Despite several desperate (and mostly ludicrous) moves on A’s part, “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” felt pretty lackluster for a summer finale. For the episode’s first half, the liars did what they do best: repeatedly receive increasingly violent threats from A whilst standing around panicking together. Because involving the police is out of the question (why is that, again?), the girls enlisted themselves, as well as Toby and Caleb, to put a stop to A’s newest murder plan. Oh, and don’t even get me started on that “cliffhanger.” A’s not the only one getting desperate, it would seem.

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 4 Finale: 'A' Shows Face

August 28th, 2013 8:02am EDT
PLL Finale
You’re either reading this and already know what happened in the “Pretty Little Liars” summer finale or you are reading this with no intentions of watching. So here it is, the episode’s biggest shocker.

EZRA IS "A!" Check your twitter feed, #EzrA is trending big time. Hello Ian Harding fans.

Take a moment to breathe.

Yes, the show ended with the biggest cliffhanger I have experienced for the entire series. Ezra is shown entering “A’s” lair, a scene that makes it seem as though he is “A” himself. Is this a joke? It couldn’t be. Is this the usual moment of giving the viewers a surprise tha...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E11 Recap: [SPOILER] Down Under

August 22nd, 2013 8:30am EDT
There are a few reasons why I have decided to name this recap “down under.” In all honesty, this episode was all over the place. There was entirely too much going on for a 45 min span. So, by concluding the entire episode into my “down under” topic, I will only mention the important details.

First, the girls investigate the blonde in the red coat’s living quarters “down under” the DiLaurentis house. They don’t find much except a clothing button and fall into a trap of almost getting shot in the eye with a needle.

Second, red coat managed to escape from Spencer and Emily after hiding out “...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4-E10 Recap: Mommie Dearest

August 15th, 2013 9:43am EDT
Pretty Little Liars
Remember when A was being a weirdo and drilling holes in someone’s floor? And removing porch panels so she/he/it could climb underneath a house? Well, like all of A’s secret plans, this one had a purpose–to spy on the DiLaurentis’ home from the safety of their dank, dark basement. That’s right–A, possibly homeless and definitely crazy, set up a cozy little hideaway complete with a sleeping bag and various pieces of trash (A’s a surprisingly huge slob, FYI) BENEATH A DEAD GIRL’S HOUSE. You’re such a psycho, A. But you’re also smarter than everyone on the show, including the police? At this r...

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: The Mirror Has Three Faces

August 14th, 2013 9:32am EDT
As if Emily’s life wasn’t complicated and kind of depressing already, she moves into the DiLaurentis house after an offer from Ali’s mom. After what we saw last week (red coat sneaking into the house), there are bound to be some answers that Emily now has the chance to find.  This come quicker than expected as they find what seems to be a squatter pad in the basement of the DiLaurentis house.  Emily notices that the squatter poked holes in the kitchen floor for someone to hear and see what’s going on above.

Wren is back, the one person who always seemed normal and not caught up in A’s web...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4-E9 Recap: Happy Birthday, Emily?

August 8th, 2013 6:15am EDT
Pretty Little Liars
Hasn’t this season of Pretty Little Liars felt a little slow in comparison to previous seasons? Nine episodes in and the police are still tracking down Wilden’s murderer while the Alison case (minor developments and Mona’s premiere confessional aside) has been mostly static–shouldn’t we be learning a bit more at this point, rather than treading previously-explored ground? Instead of being pushed along, story lines–like Emily’s injured arm, Ashley’s legal trouble, Spencer’s proclivity for enthusiastically suspecting everyone at some point or another, and Aria’s new relationship–are being exp...

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: 'Into the Deep'

August 7th, 2013 7:10pm EDT
Pretty Little Liars
It’s Emily’s birthday and nothing says a Rosewood party like someone floating face down in the creek.  There’s something Jenna didn’t see coming, but really, she didn’t see it coming, she’s losing her sight again.  After Emily saved her, she realized that she had been hit on the back of the head and pushed in because of the blood on her shirt.

Jake comes to the party with another girl, which has Aria jealous. Their night ends in a little lip locking and the talk about starting a relationship. Meanwhile, Ezria is about to start the fight of his life as he tries to get custody of Malcolm.


'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E9 Recap: [SPOILER] Jenna Is Unwanted

August 7th, 2013 8:59am EDT
Pretty Little Liars
The episode of 'Pretty Little Liars' had a mellow beginning with the focus being on Ashley Marin and her trial details. The trial is still set to happen, seeing as there is no evidence in Mona’s statement, but Marin is released on bail. The bad news is that no one knows what may be the result of Marin’s case. She could still be found guilty if evidence points towards her. Till then, she is on house arrest. Hanna pleased and less emotional finds comfort in her mom’s return home and doesn’t leave her side. Pastor Ted shows up as well to comfort the Marin girls.

As Pastor Ted and Ashley reuni...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4-E8 Recap: 'Bad Girls Do It Well'

July 31st, 2013 3:52pm EDT
Pretty Little Liars
On last night’s Pretty Little Liars, Aria sought help protecting her brother, Spencer continued Toby’s quest for the truth about his mother, Emily planned for her future, and Hanna enlisted Mona to be her lying coach. Isn’t Pretty Little Liars so much more fun when Mona’s around? Especially since she’s joined Team Liars. Despite being a devious liar and A+ criminal, Mona often seems like the sanest member of the group–very level-headed and intelligent, though she did learn from the best. And it doesn’t hurt that Ezra and Jake also made appearances in “The Guilty Girl’s Handbook,” making the...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E5 Recap: [SPOILER] Distraught Hanna

July 10th, 2013 11:42am EDT
In last weeks Pretty Little Liars ending, Hanna was ready to admit that her mother may have been Wilden’s killer. Looks like that was a tip to this week’s topic of interest—Hanna.

If things weren’t already messy for the Marin family, the situation just got messier. Ashley seeks counsel from Spencer’s mom, Veronica . Not admitting she is guilty of Wilden’s murder, Ashley asks Veronica for help with her side of the story. The more Ashley is open about her involvement in Wilden’s case, the more Hanna is going beyond her means to keep her mother’s story under wrapped. While snooping around the...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E4 Recap: [SPOILER] Connecting The Dots

July 8th, 2013 9:10am EDT
Pretty Little Liars
Quite a few dots were connected in last week’s episode.

We begin with Spencer. Family secrets begin to spill the more the Hastings’ family members dig. Spencer reveals to Melissa and her mother of her rejection to UPenn. Melissa didn’t seem too shock of it. Was the rejection a part of “A’s” games, and did Melissa have anything to do with? Later, using Melissa while she’s home for a few days, Spencer plants the mask of Melissa’s face in Melissa’s suitcase, who then finds it and goes to hunt down the curator. She finds all of her face masks and destroys them before throwing them into the lak...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E3 Recap: [SPOILER] The Return

June 26th, 2013 8:25am EDT
Just when I had started wondering about the characters that disappeared, this episode surprised me by bringing some of Rosewood’s finest back.

First, Aria’s mom, Ella (Holly Marie Combs), is the center of attention in the episode opener. Still seeing coffee shop owner, Zach, Ella is asked to escape to Vienna with Zach for “less than a year.” She contemplates if leaving Aria would be a good reason. Aria, who finds herself jealous of her mom’s love life, sees this as a good opportunity for her mom to continue to be happy and gives Ella her blessing to go.

My biggest shocker for a return was...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 4 Premiere Recap: [SPOILER] What's In The Trunk?

June 12th, 2013 9:12am EDT
Pretty Little Liars
The much anticipated season 4 of Pretty Little Liars premiered last night and the season premiere episode left us with answers to all of our questions, with the usual add on of new questions.

Let’s rewind to the end of season 3. Spencer tricked Toby into meeting up with her, where they both decided to reunite in efforts to catch Red Coat in action. Spencer pretended to be part of the “A” team so that she could plan a fake lodge party in hopes that Mona would come and bring along “A” with her.  Hanna, Aria and Emily were all in on her plan, after they confronted Spencer about her recent bre...

Ryan Merriman And Kristen McMullen
Actor Ryan Merriman proposed to longtime girlfriend Kristen McMullen over New Year's Eve and managed to keep the big news a secret until now.

During the premiere of Jackie Robinson biopic 42 in Hollywood on Tuesday night, the Pretty Little Liars star confirmed the news and explained how the couple's "hectic" engagement night in his native New Zealand turned out perfect.

"There is this awesome thing called Sky City, with a Stratosphere tower, and they light off about $300,000 worth of fireworks at midnight," he tells Us Weekly magazine. "As soon as I gave her a kiss and proposed, the firew...

Recap: ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Episode 18: ‘Dead to Me’

February 7th, 2013 9:35am EST
This episode was a massive bag of filler but even the Pretty Little Liars need a day off right?  Most of the girls are busy making their way through their own dramas all while seemingly ignoring a fractured Spencer.

Case in point:  While chilling at the Brew, Hanna and Emily are consoling Aria, who is in Ezra withdrawal.  They are all confused and they turn to their leader (Spencer) for guidance and she’s blank.  No emotion.  No proof she was even listening to the conversation.  She just makes up an excuse and heads up to the coffee house register.

Jason walks in and informs the Liars tha...

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: 'Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Inferno'

January 30th, 2013 11:17am EST
Pretty Little Liars
A heartbroken Spencer makes for excellent television, this much we already knew.  How great it would be to watch however …I think we undersold it.  She goes through so many emotions in this episode – every scene she isn’t in just doesn’t seem to measure up.

Stage 1:  Denial and Isolation

We start with Spencer having a sex dream with Toby that goes awry.  Articles of clothes are being removed and then the next thing you know, Toby is in full A garb and strangling her.  That’s enough to dry out any wet dream.  And our heroine (somehow that’s what she seems like) awakens to figure out that r...

Recap: 'Pretty Little Liars': Episode 16: 'Misery Loves Company'

January 23rd, 2013 12:29pm EST
Pretty Little Liars
A lot happened in this episode.  Blondes showed their crazy.  Brunettes had breakdowns.  And a shirtless man appeared fresh out the shower.   There is so much to cover, let’s jump right in.

The girls are at the Montgomery house tending to a fever-ish Aria, who in her stupor she insists that they leave her all alone at home with a band of crazy people around.  She’ll manage on her own.  This clearly will not end well.

And to prove it, Toby and Mona are in their new hide-out, which looks exactly like the last one, cooking up a dastardly plan that will instill fear into the hearts of the gir...

Interview: 'Love Me' Lead Lindsey Shaw Talks Dark Romance, Being Goofy and Looking For Uncomfortable

January 17th, 2013 11:00am EST
Love Me
When it comes to up and coming female talent to watch for nobody comes to mind faster then charismatic actress Lindsey Shaw.  A notable part of such past TV shows as "Aliens in America" and ABC Family’s "10 Things I Hate About You," Shaw is currently very well known for playing the complex character of Paige McCullers in the hit drama "Pretty Little Liars."  But for us it’s been the amazing film work that has starting showing even more savory sides of Shaw - her captivating turn as the aggressive yet sweet Eliana Wynter in 2011’s "The Howling Reborn" is without question truly entrancing wor...

Recap: 'Pretty Little Liars' Episode 15: 'Mona-Mania!'

January 16th, 2013 11:04am EST
Seems these days Bryon is always apologizing for something.  And things are no different in “Mona-Mania.”  The daddy with the leastest (we’re just going to pretend Hanna’s dad doesn’t exist) apologizes to Aria for accusing her and her friends of arson and attempted murder but she shrugs it off.  Nothing is forgiven.

While they are both bemoaning his failure as a father, Em, Hanna and Spence are back at the high school basement (a major location for this half of the season apparently).  Hanna is overwhelmed at the thought of having to worry about Aria’s daddy issues on top of her own. Spenc...

The Freaks Come Out At Night

It’s the wee hours of the night in Rosewood, PA and the freaks are out and about wreaking havoc.  Mona’s creeping into Hanna’s house to beg her former best friend for help with her biggest obstacle to date:  walking back into high school post-scandal.  Because she’s better now (at being evil) and the other kids will be mean.  And Toby is trying to run over some black hooded-kid on a skateboard, who refuses to accept that the sidewalk is his friend as opposed to the middle of the street where all cars fit. (That kid is revealed later, hang tight!)
