Janel Parrish Gets Scared at Knott’s Scary Farm

Janel Parrish had some Halloween fun at Knott’s Scary Farm, along with some of her PLL costars.  Janel (Mona on PLL) hung out with Tyler Blackburn (Caleb on PLL) and Drew Van Acker (Jason on PLL) at Knotts.

Janel braved one of Knott’s Scary Farm’s haunted mazes, but she wasn’t alone.  She and Kelli Berglund (actress from Lab Rats) screamed their way through the maze.  Both actresses said the best part of the maze was exiting, when they were finally safe.  Which one of them do you think screamed the most?



Anyone have Halloween plans that involve haunted mazes?

Val Hurt by Judge Len’s Condescension on DWTS

DWTS judge Len Goodman was not impressed by Janel and Val’s Pretty Little Liars dance Monday night, so he made a comment about “cleaning windows” in their dance. 

After the show, Val said he didn’t mind getting a score of 7 from Len.  However, he did mind Len being condescending to Janel.  “I care about him giving Alfonso’s Rumba a compliment at the expense of mocking my partner and our performance”, Val said.  “You don’t have to give somebody a compliment while bringing somebody else down”.

Val admitted their dance didn’t have as much Viennese Waltz content, since they focused on telling the story of Pretty Little Liars.  However, they worked really hard to do this Pretty Little Liars dance for all the PLL fans.


What did you think of Val’s comments?  It’s nice to know he’s got Janel’s back.

PLL Spoilers: Burning Questions Answered by Ouija Board

Pretty Little Liars has so many twists and turns that the burning questions just keep growing.  You can head over to play the PLL Ouija game, where you ask burning PLL questions.  You can also explore the board, which may unlock PLL photos.

Here’s what the Ouija board had to say about our favorite Liars:

  • Are Jenna and Sydney twins?  “No”
  • Ezra will be getting a new job, but he won’t be returning to Rosewood.
  • Does Aria love Ezra?  “I hope so”
  • Will Aria’s parents get back together?  “Hope so”
  • Did CeCe kill Mona?  “Keep watching”
  • Does Mona leave behind anything?  “Yes”
  • Will Mike be okay?  “Hard to say”
  • Will Mona be in flashbacks? “Yes”
  • Will we ever see Mona’s mom again?  “It’s a sad story”
  • Did Ali kill Mona?  “Keep watching”
  • Did Hanna kill Mona?  “Keep watching”
  • Do the PLLs trust Ali? “I doubt it”
  • Can the PLLs trust Lucas?  “He’s a good guy”
  • Will Emily get into college? “Yes”
  • Will Spencer get into college?  “Not so simple” (Do we believe CeCe really gave Spencer’s UPenn application to the admissions guy?)
  • Will Hanna get into college?  “She’s a smart kid”
  • Will Aria get into college?  “Unclear”
  • Is Toby a good cop?  “I think so”
  • Does Spencer love Toby?  “I hope so”
  • Did Spencer kill Bethany?  “No”
  • Will we ever see Melissa again?  “Ask Wren”
  • Does Emily love Paige?  “I hope so”
  • Does Hanna love Caleb?  “One one zero five” (The time Caleb and Hanna spent the night together)
  • Is Ali “A”? “Wait and see”
  • Who is “A”?  “Not even I know”
  • Where is “A” taking Mona’s body?  “Keep watching”
  • Will the PLLs have a happy Christmas?  “Ho Ho Ho”
  • Are there ghosts in Rosewood?  “Only secrets”
  • Are there still secrets in Rosewood?  “Of course”

Although this doesn’t give us answers about Mona’s death, it does resolve a few questions.  Despite how similar Sydney and Jenna looked at the eye doctor’s office, they are not twins.  And if Lucas is a good guy, does that mean we can cross him off the list of people who might be “A”?  Did this game answer any of your PLL questions?

Lucy Hale’s Halloween Costumes

Lucy Hale chatted with celeb makeup artist Jamie Greenberg about her favorite Halloween costumes at the photo shoot for the Mark Maglog for spring 2015.

Although Lucy’s favorite holiday is Labor Day, Halloween is a close second.  For past Halloweens she’s been a unicorn and Toddler & Tiara.  (Pictures shown in the video).  She has also dressed as Lucy from Peanuts.

Lucy's absolute favorite costume was Angelica from Rugrats.  She made the costume herself.  Lucy says that she’s a total DIYer.  “I’m like Martha Stewart”, Lucy said.




Lucy Hale plans to dress as Dolly Parton for Halloween this year.  Hope she posts some pictures of her costume!

Recap of PLL "We Love You To Death" Halloween Special

A photo posted by @imarleneking on


Pretty Little Liars “We Love You to DeAth” was a Halloween special for the fans.  Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse discussed PLL and answered fan questions in Spencer’s living room.  Old faces returned from the dead to discuss their characters. 

Here are the highlights of the PLL Halloween special:

Identity of “A” will be Revealed Soon:
We won’t have to wait until the end of season 7 to find out who the big “A” is.  Marlene King promises that we will know who “A” is before season 7 starts.  The writers assure us that they have an endgame in mind.  There is a future beyond Rosewood and life after high school for the Liars.

Some of the PLL Cast Already Know Who “A” is:
Troian and Ashley already know the identity of “A”, which made Lucy feel left out.


The Girls Would Love to Work with Lindsey Shaw (Paige) More: 
When asked who the girls want to have more scenes with, both Troian and Ashley agreed that it would be great to have some scenes with Lindsey Shaw (Paige on PLL).  Spencer and Hanna haven’t had much interaction with Paige on the show.

The Girls Do Their Own Stunts:
All the actresses love doing their own stunts.  In “Singe Fright Female” PLL episode 3x11, when Spencer gets locked in the dressing room with a snake, Troian even wanted to hold the snake.

Death of PLL Characters:
Bryce Johnson (Det. Wilden on PLL) explained that he would call his character Detective Creepy Pants.  The PLL actresses all miss Bryce, who they say is funny.  Bryce said Wilden’s coffin was actually really comfortable.  They gave him a pillow to rest his head on.  He mentioned the photo Ian Harding (Ezra on PLL) posted online of Bryce texting while he was in the coffin.

Yani Gellman, who played Garrett Reynolds on PLL, talked about the scene in “This is a Dark Ride” episode 3x13, when Aria screams as she discovers that she is trapped in a crate with his dead body.  Yani said it went from terrifying to hilarious.  They had a lot of fun shooting that.

When Janel Parrish was told Mona was going to die, Marlene assured her that she hadn’t done anything wrong.  Janel said it wasn’t easy to keep her eyes open when they were filming Mona’s dead body in the trunk of the car.

PLL Guys are “Less Yummy” Now:
The PLL actresses constantly work with gorgeous actors, but they don’t really notice that anymore.  Sasha said that the guys get less yummy, since they are always around.  However, the guys are really funny.  Troian and Lucy agreed.  Lucy explained that the novelty of their looks has worn off.  The guys are attractive, but they know each other so well now and they’ve seen so many different sides to them.

Grueling Fraterdays:
Sometimes PLL filming goes late Friday into early Saturday mornings, which they call Fraterdays.  They get through those nights with lots of coffee and food.  Lucy points out that those are the times they laugh a lot and have the most fun.

This Vine video Troian posted last year seems to depict the fun Lucy was talking about.  In the video, Lucy Hale, Lindsey Shaw, Ryan Guzman, and Troian Bellisario show us just how crazy late night shooting can get.


Favorite “A” Final Closer Scenes:
The girls bring up the creepy closing scene when “A” dragged Alison’s mom across the lawn to bury her.

Janel likes the funny scenes, like the time is seemed as though “A” was going to eat Tippi the bird.  Turned out “A” was just feeding Tippi.  Janel thought that scene was morbidly funny.

There are “A”s Hidden in Every Set:
There is usually an “A” hidden in every set.  For example, it might be an “A” on a mug in the background of Ezra’s apartment.  Even in the scene when the lodge caught on fire, they tried to make the flames look like the letter “A”.  They also try to have a crack in the wall or a window, so that “A” can always spy on the Liars.

What the PLL Cast is Afraid of:
Ashley thinks her house has some ghost activity.  Lucy said she lived in a haunted house a couple of years ago.  According to Sasha, Shay is scared of rodents.  Janel said she’s scared of spiders and clowns.  Keegan gets freaked out by campfire stories.

Who Should Have Your Back in a Zombie Apocalypse:
Spencer and Emily were good choices, but Lucy’s choice of “A” was probably the best one.  “A” would definitely be someone to have on your side.

They also discussed Emily’s girlfriends, their favorite “A” messages, and their funniest memories on the PLL set.

The Halloween special ended with the cast thanking PLL fans for all the support.  Lucy started crying as she expressed how grateful she is.

Janel Parrish in ‘High School Possession’ Lifetime Movie

Just in time for Halloween, Janel Parrish stars in Lifetime’s movie High School Possession.  Janel stars as Lauren, a high school girl who tries to help her possessed friend Chloe (played by Jennifer Stone).

Here is Lifetime’s movie synopsis:  “Lauren is your average high school student. Intelligent and gifted, she’s the student editor of the school newspaper, and as part of her senior year project, she’s doing an expose on each of the school cliques. Her next assignment is to follow Olivia and her church youth group known as “The Chosen”. One night after interviewing them, Lauren stumbles onto The Chosen performing an exorcism on a girl led by Reverend Young. Lauren is horrified but intrigued so she begins to investigate and it seems to have really helped the girl. Meanwhile, Lauren’s best friend Chloe is having trouble and spiraling out of control at home and at school. Her mother has taken her to countless doctors and none of them can clearly diagnose her. The only option remaining is for Chloe to be hospitalized. Lauren realizes that Chloe might be possessed and needs an exorcism. But when Reverend Young refuses to help them Lauren and The Chosen decide to take matters into their own hands…except not all of the girls may be doing this to save Chloe and when it becomes evident that Olivia is performing the ritual to hurt her it’s up to Lauren to truly save Chloe.”


High School Possession airs on October 25 at 8 PM on Lifetime.  In case you miss it, Lifetime plans to replay the movie on October 26 at 12 AM and 5 PM, and November 3 at 8 PM.

Janel Parrish Takes Lie Detector Test

With so much chemistry on the dance floor, people have started wondering if DWTS partners Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy are dating in real life.  Access Hollywood hooked Janel and Val up to a lie detector to get the truth out of them.

Janel denied dreaming about Val, though the lie detector test seemed to imply that she had.  Val joked that he has had some nightmares involving Janel, which didn’t show up as a lie on the test.  They both admitted to getting/giving massages after a long dance session.

Val denied kissing Janel, which Access Hollywood quickly refuted with footage of their kisses.  Val said “Her face is just so small, and her lips are so big, that anywhere I try to kiss is going to land somewhere on her lips”.

Janel was clear that she doesn’t have romantic feelings for Val, but Access Hollywood found her answer questionable.  Both denied that they are dating.

However, Janel Parrish is no long dating boyfriend Payson Lewis.  A couple days ago, Payson wrote on Instagram “All good things must come to an end. Thank you for the happiest year and a half of my life. I will always love you @janelparrish and I wish you nothing but the best. Forever #teamjanel”.



Do you think Janel and Val would be cute together?

3 New PLL Halloween Sneak Peek Videos

Here are three new sneak peek videos for the Pretty Little Liars “We Love You to DeAth” Halloween special .

The first sneak peek is a look back at all of Emily’s girlfriends.  They revisit Emily’s relationship with Maya, Samara, Alison and Paige.


In the second sneak peek, Troian Bellisario (Spencer on PLL) thanks the girls for coming over to her house.  Lucy Hale (Aria on PLL) reads a fan question.  “What ‘A’ message do you think is the most creative and your favorite?  Mine’s when ‘A’s on the back of the car spelling I see you”. 

Lucy’s favorite is the time “A” put a message in Hanna’s tooth during her visit to the dentist.  Lucy also mentions the time “A” put finger bones in Spencer’s wedding dress at the charity show.


In the third sneak peek, Sasha Pieterse (Alison on PLL) reads a question from a fan.  “To all: what is your funniest memory on set?” 

Shay Mitchell’s favorite moments are off set, like when Ashley Benson does a prank.  Troian brings up the first Halloween, when they all went insane in their costumes.  Lucy ripped off her wig and Ashley ripped off her eyelashes.  Troian says the costumes are really cool, but by the time filming is done the girls are ready to burn their costumes.

PLL Spoilers: Couples Status for Christmas Episode

Cold weather is the perfect excuse for cuddling and it looks like our favorite Pretty Little Liars couples will be keeping each other warm in Rosewood this Christmas. 

Executive producer Marlene King gave an update on how the Liars and their significant others will be doing in “How the ‘A’ Stole Christmas” PLL episode 5x13.

Haleb (Hanna and Caleb) will have a sweet Christmas together.  “They are very, very cute and they may be dressed up as elves”.

No good news for Emison (Emily and Alison) fans.  “Oh Emison, that’s a tough one.  It might not be a happy Christmas for them”.

Paily (Paige and Emily) seem like they will have a romantic Christmas, based on the sneak peek released.  In the video, Emily and Paige sing Christmas carols together.  In the second sneak peek of the Christmas episode, Paige and Emily slow dance together.

Toby wasn’t dancing with Spencer at the Ice Ball since he has a broken leg, but that doesn’t mean Spoby (Spencer and Toby) is over.  Spencer and Toby will have “some very, very romantic and fun gestures”.

Good news for Ezria (Aria and Ezra) fans.  Their “story is just going to be really fun and romantic”.  We will also find out that Ezra is a really good cook.

Janel Parrish Does Sexy Burlesque Dance on DWTS Week 5

It was switch-up week on Dancing With the Stars, which meant Janel left her dancing partner Val and got a new partner for the week. 

Janel was blindfolded and guessed who her new partner was by feeling his arms and abs.  She was right on her first guess.  Her new partner was Artem Chigvintsev (who is usually paired up with Lea Thompson from ABC Family’s Switched at Birth).


Janel and Artie did a burlesque dance to a song by Jessie J. (who happened to be a guest judge).

The judges had some mixed feelings about the dance.  Julianne didn’t think it was really burlesque.  On the other hand, Bruno loved how sexy it was.  Carrie Ann thought Janel and Artem did some dangerous lifts, which showed that Janel had complete trust in Artem.  However, she agreed with Julianne that the dance lacked the humor of a true burlesque dance. 

Julianne, Carrie Ann and guest judge Jessie J. all gave Janel 8s, but Bruno gave her a 9.  With a total score of 33, Janel ended up in fourth place.


Did you vote for Janel this week?

PLL Christmas Sneak Peek Video of Liars at the Ice Ball

Looks like Alison has replaced the Liars with four new followers in the second sneak peek video of “How the ‘A’ Stole Christmas” Pretty Little Liars episode 5x13.  (In case you missed it, here’s the details of the first Christmas sneak peek video that was released).

The Liars look beautiful all dressed up for the Ice Ball and it looks like love is in the air.  Spencer isn’t seen with Toby, but the rest of the Liars are slow dancing with their dates.  Aria’s with Ezra, Hanna’s with Caleb, and Emily’s with Paige. 

The whole school watches as Ali leads her new posse into the Ice Ball.  Ali doesn’t have a mask on, but her new friends are all wearing masquerade masks.  The Liars wonder who Ali’s new friends are.

Spencer and Hanna slip out of the Ice Ball while everyone’s attention is still on Ali, but before they leave Caleb kisses Hanna and tells her to be careful.  Someone in a white hooded cloak watches them leave.




What do you think Hanna and Spencer are up to?

Shay Mitchell Doesn’t Know Who “A” Is

Shay Mitchell was a guest on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, hosted by Nick Lachey.  Nick asked Shay if she knows who “A” is on Pretty Little Liars and Shay said she has no idea.  She hasn’t asked the writers who “A” is, since she’s afraid she might accidentally spill the secret.

Shay also talked about filming the Pretty Little Liars Christmas episode in the middle of summer.  Shay said it was about 111 degrees while they were all wearing mittens, scarves and beanies.  Looking back on the Christmas episode, Shay just remembers the sweltering heat and dripping.


In the “Times Square Uncensored” part, fans got to ask Shay questions.  One fan wanted to know if “A” is a blonde haired character, since Mona’s killer was blonde.  Shay pointed out that characters could dye their hair or wear wigs, so we still can’t really eliminate brunette characters such as her own character, Emily.

Shay also said the most shocking thing from season 5 of PLL was Mona’s death.



Who do you think "A" is?

Janel Parrish’s Emotional Rumba “Absolutely Breathtaking” on DWTS Week 4



Last night, Janel Parrish and her dancing partner Val danced the rumba to Whitney Houston’s song “How Will I Know”, performed by Sam Smith.  The week’s theme was “most memorable year”.  For Janel, that year was 2002 when she moved from Hawaii to Los Angeles. 

When Janel was six, she worked with her first vocal coach and mentor, B.J.  B.J. was like a second grandmother to her.  Her love inspired Janel to move to LA and pursue her dreams.  The year Janel moved, she found out B.J. had breast cancer.  Janel planned to go back to see her, but B.J. passed away before she could.  Crying, Janel said the biggest regret she had was that she didn’t get to say goodbye to her.  Janel wanted to perform the rumba from her heart for B.J.

The judges were impressed by Janel’s dancing.  Bruno thought Janel looked “like an exotic angel”.  Carrie Ann said the rumba is one of the most difficult dances to perform and Janel’s performance was “absolutely breathtaking”.

With judge Len still absent, viewers got to be the fourth judge.  All the judges, including the viewers, gave Janel 9s.  That gave Team Janelskiy a total score of 36, leaving them in fourth place among the ten teams.




Janel has really been rocking these dances.  Can’t wait to see what she does next!

Chad Lowe Feels “TV Dad Pride” Over Lucy Hale’s Music

Aria and her dad have had a rocky relationship on PLL, but in real life Chad Lowe (Aria’s dad Byron Montgomery) and Lucy Hale’s relationship is one of complete support.   

Chad Lowe tweeted “Local Starbucks playing @LucyHale’s “Nervous Girl”!  I feel a deep sense of TV dad pride!”



This isn’t the first time Chad Lowe has shown his full support for Lucy Hale’s music career.  In August, Chad Lowe and Cody Christian (Aria’s brother Mike on PLL) attended Lucy Hale’s music performance at the OC Fair.

Has anyone else been hearing Lucy Hale’s songs around town?

Sasha Pieterse in Inherent Vice

Want to see Sasha Pieterse in a role completely different from her role as Alison DiLaurentis on Pretty Little Liars?  Check out Sasha in Inherent Vice, a movie also starring Martin Short, Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson, and Reese Witherspoon.  Sasha plays a druggie in the movie.

Here’s the trailer for Inherent Vice.  You can catch a glimpse of Sasha around the 1:04 on the video.





This movie might not be for all PLL fans, though.  Sasha told Cosmopolitan “I don’t suggest all the fans of Pretty Little Liars see this one”. 

Inherent Vice will have a limited release date of December 12, 2014 and it will go wide on January 9, 2015. 

Are you planning to watch Sasha Pieterse in Inherent Vice?

PLL Halloween Special Sneak Peek

Happy October!  It’s become somewhat of a tradition to expect a Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode.  In the past we’ve seen three different Halloween episodes. 

In “The First Secret” episode 2x13, we flashback to Halloween before Alison went missing.  Noel throws a Halloween party and Ali plays a prank on her friends.  Alison starts receiving messages from “A”. 

In “This is a Dark Ride” episode 3x13, the Liars go on a Halloween themed train ride, only to find out “A” is taking the ride with them.  Aria gets locked in a box with Garrett’s dead body and is almost pushed off the train. 

And in “Grave New World” episode 4x13 the Liars go to Ravenswood in the hopes of tracking Alison down.  When the girls get back to Rosewood, Alison reveals herself to her friends in Spencer’s backyard. 

This year, however, Pretty Little Liars breaks from tradition with a Christmas episode instead of Halloween.  Why the change?

Marlene King, creator of PLL, has wanted to do a Christmas episode since the beginning of the series.  PLL fans have also been very vocal in asking for the episode, as well.  Marlene thinks that making a Christmas episode will be fun because it’s a little different.  We’ve never seen Rosewood in the winter, so it’ll be great to see the Liars dressed up for winter. 

Don’t worry, though.  We’ll still get some sort of PLL Halloween.  While we won’t get an actual Halloween episode, we will get a Pretty Little Liars Halloween Special.

The cast of Pretty Little Liars will answer some burning questions from fans.  It won’t just be our favorite Liars Lucy Hale (Aria), Ashley Benson (Hanna), Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Sasha Pieterse (Alison), Janel Parrish (Mona) and Shay Mitchell (Emily).

We’ll also see some old faces, too.  Bianca Lawson (Emily’s dead ex-girlfriend Maya), Ryan Merriman (Melissa’s dead ex-boyfriend Ian), and Bryce Johnson (dead Detective Darren Wilden) will also be back to talk about PLL.

The other girls aren’t too happy to hear Troian say that she is the one who knows who “A” is.  Troian jokes that the other girls have to earn that knowledge.





The special will be more than a fun question and answer session.  Marlene King, creator of PLL, has said that the special will reveal a few secrets.


The PLL Halloween Special will air Tuesday, October 21st.  Wonder what secrets they’ll spill.
