    Somewhere filming Divergent, Shailene Woodley is doing the happy dance.

    Is Ashley still alive?

    Love this show! Even though the ratings were down this season, it’s still has the most watch season on ABC Family! Pretty Little Liars beats Secret Life now, but PLL numbers would never reach as SLife did in it’s first two seasons..

  • Tom

    Interesting. Now what about Bunheads?

  • Nikki

    @ Tom i was thinking the same thing.

  • Jessica

    Will the show be coming back on? I need to see more. I hope this final show thing is a lie.
