Pretty Little Liars Throwback

The summer premiere begins at 8PM and I cannot wait! And to prepare myself, I am holed up in one place watching the marathon until then. To celebrate the premiere, this post is dedicated to the lovely Pretty Little Liars and what they all were doing before they were cast in the hit show.

First off, today is Lucy Hale’s 22nd birthday! Before she was cast as the hip and artsy Aria, Lucy was dating Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie. She was also in the canceled show Privileged, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and performed as a young pre-teen on American Juniors.

Troian didn’t have too many notable roles before Pretty Little Liars, but she was in Billboard Dad with the Olsen twins!

Before Pretty Little Liars, I used to get Ashley Benson mixed up with Taylor Momsen – these days that won’t be a problem. Ashley played a mean girl in Lifetime’s Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal and a nice girl in one of the Bring It On movies, but I prefer her as the HBIC.

Shay Mitchell first breakout role was being cast as Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars. There aren’t too many pictures of her from back in the day, but she has had a complete transformation since her first days on the set and is now a spokesperson for a line by Pantene.

- Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got married this past weekend! No pictures have been released yet, but Nicole did wear 3 gowns – one being a Marchesa custom-made wedding gown for the walk down the aisle. Also, there was an elephant present. Not an elephant in the room, but an actual elephant stomping all over Lionel Richie’s estate where the wedding was held. Paris Hilton was not invited.

The Client List – Review

Last night, Lifetime premiered the new Jennifer Love Hewitt movie, “The Client List.” The premiere gathered about 3.9 million viewers! I’m not all that surprised considering how much hype was going around the movie. It was well-publicized to the point that I almost felt it didn’t even need to be on Lifetime let alone a Lifetime Original. I don’t think it was a good enough film to be shown in theaters, however.

Samantha Horton, an ex-beauty pageant queen married to her high school sweetheart quarterback, has three children and no income coming in. The couple are on the brink of foreclosure and struggling to find ways to make ends meet. With her husband recovering from a previous injury, Samantha Horton feels the pressure on her shoulders to support her family and put meals on the table. Sam has hope that her previous skills from being a physical therapist will be put to good use at the Kind Touch massage parlor, but she is caught off guard when she realizes that her clients expect more than just a good rub down.

Now, Crêpan Crepe World, a Japanese-style crepe restaurant is moving in.

Homecoming

I guess I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up with this film. I recently was reading my daily news and saw that this movie was coming out, but it turns out it was released in 2008. It must have made the news because of it’s release on Lifetime, which is where I watched it last night. I had high hopes because this one of the only acting gigs I had seen Mischa Barton in since her OC days – and the film was directed by Morgan Freeman. He’s a pretty decent actor, yes – but how was he has a director? So-so.

In the story of Homecoming, Mike [Matt Long] and Shelby [Mischa Barton] were the small town’s perfect couple. Everyone knew who they were and everyone thought that they would stay together forever. We all know that that rarely ever happens, but a girl can hope. Mike went away to college and one year later he brought back his new girlfriend Elizabeth [Jessica Stroup] for the homecoming ceremony. Shelby, however, still thought that they were together during the school year- weird. Anyways, Shelby tries to win back Mike while he’s home and kidnaps Elizabeth even though that wasn’t her initial plan.

Basically, Shelby’s crazy. I ended up rooting for Elizabeth the whole time naturally and developed a like/hate relationship w/ Mike. I expected Mischa to prove her acting skills in this film, but she kind of just let me down. Maybe it’s because I’ll always see her as Marissa Cooper. She may have done some crazy things in her time, but  Marissa Cooper would never kidnap any girlfriend of Ryan’s.
