5 Questions with Baby Daddy’s Derek Theler

Derek Theler plays charming hockey player Danny Wheeler on the ABC Family’s comedy, Baby Daddy. In a special two-part crossover event, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco guest starred on the Feb. 4 episode of Baby Daddy and on Feb. 13, Theler and co-star Melissa Peterman will star on the Valentine’s Day episode of General Hospital. At the end of my chat with Monaco and Theler about the double swap, Theler shared that the soap’s rapid pace was a challenge, but that the experience taught him to be a “smaller” actor. Then he answered our 5 Questions… 1. You’re at a magazine rack and […]

General Hospital & Baby Daddy Double-Crossover Event, Part 2

Today, in the second part of a double-swap between General Hospital and Baby Daddy stars, actors from the ABC Family Comedy are heading to Port Charles for their close-ups. On Feb. 4, GH’s Kelly Monaco played a very exaggerated (and very funny) version of herself on Baby Daddy, and now Derek Theler (“Danny Wheeler”) and Melissa Peterman (“Bonnie Wheeler”) are visiting the soap. I spoke with Derek and Kelly last week and they revealed the biggest difference between shooting Baby Daddy and GH, is that soap operas — which have to hair a new hour of programming every day — work amazingly […]

General Hospital & Baby Daddy Double-Crossover Event, Part 1

A crossover episode is a win-win for TV fans. Not only do you get to see your favorite characters interacting with megawatt stars, but also you get to see your favorite celeb flexing his or her acting chops in another role. Baby Daddy and General Hospital have two upcoming crossover episodes (is that a double-crossover?).  I spoke to Baby Daddy’s Derek Theler & General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco about the fun of visiting another show and how they become like foreign exchange students in their visits each other’s “strange lands.” The first crossover event airs Feb. 4, when Kelly Monaco (as […]

“Freak Out” Your Friends

ABC Family’s new hidden camera show Freak Out sets up unsuspecting people for spectacular scares. These unwitting victims are put in spooky situations by the people who know them best: their friends, siblings, and even their parents. Executive producer SallyAnn Salsano says that prank-loving participants tell her, “My friend did X, Y and Z, and now I’m just gonna freak them out,” and through the use of stunts, lighting, pyrotechnics and some really terrifying makeup, Freak Out creates some terrifying (and terrific) TV moments. SallyAnn Salsano’s success as a producer is unparallelled in the world of fresh, viral TV. As […]

Tori Spelling And Jennie Garth Reunite For “Mystery Girls”

Long before Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian became symbols of the “good life” for our society’s youth, the kids from Beverly Hills, 90210 were shaping our idea of what a high-end lifestyle could mean to teenagers. But regardless of their tax brackets, the real heart of that show was the close bond between the characters — in particular, Tori Spelling’s Donna Martin and Jennie Garth’s Kelly Taylor. Now, more than 20 years after they first met, Garth and Spelling are reuniting onscreen in Mystery Girls, a new ABC Family comedy, airing Wednesdays, that Spelling herself helped develop. Still […]

In last week’s episode everything finally came tumbling down, leading to confession after confession. Not only have Jo and Danny had to worry about hiding a secret, but now that everything has started to come to light about what is really going on, Charlie […]

Twisted recap: “Danny, Interrupted”

Everything has been spiraling out of control for all of the characters in ABC Family’s Twisted, and I’m not sure if things are going to get better any time soon. The mysterious crash that the police found in Vikram’s (T.J. Ramini) death has been in question ever since it was discovered by Kyle (Sam Robards). In the last episode the police found new evidence on the car from the crash, and much to our surprise, they found the fingerprints of Jack (Ivan Sergei) all over the car. He’s now the one in the spotlight who is being accused of killing […]

Switched at Birth spring finale recap

ABC Family’s Switched at Birth spring finale is finally here, and even though we’re sad to see this season end, boy, was this episode a good one. For a while now we have been wondering who Emmitt’s (Sean Berdy) online girlfriend really is. We’re not the only curious ones—Bay (Vanessa Marano) even confronts Emmitt when she finds out that the picture that was by his online girlfriend, Mandy, wasn’t really hers. Emmitt makes up an excuse for Mandy and pushes Bay away doubting everything that she has to say about the situation. Bay is worried about Emmitt, though, and even […]
