FAREWELL TREE HILL - A PIECE OF THE RIVER COURT
It hasn't fully hit us yet that there is only ONE
episode ever left of One Tree Hill. Next week is
going to be extremely emotional. Yesterday, almost
all day we saw nothing by One Tree Hill memories
being tweeted left and right, many media friends
posting their pieces of the River Court. We got
especially emotional when we opened our own mail to
find a special "thank you" from The WB as well. Our
very own authentic piece of the River Court, *sigh*
we don't want it to end. But all good things must
come to an end right?

For those asking where to get a piece of the court
like the one pictured above, they are NOT for sale,
as there were only 100 made.
As we said, it's a "thank you" from the studio ...
however, The CW is giving One Tree Hill fans a
chance to WIN one. READ:CW'S ONE TREE

BUSH IN ELKIN | 2012 NEW GARDE LOS ANGELES
via The Fashion Court -- Last night, Sophia Bush
hosted the 2012 New Garde Los Angeles cocktail event
to support I AM THAT GIRL — sponsored by GenArt and
Ciroc Vodka, at Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood.
The 29-year-old “One Tree Hill” actress added a
pinch of “spring fever” to a nearly all dark look
with a pale green v-neck “Abby” dress — with a black
mesh insets at the neck and hips, from the Fall 2012
collection by ELKIN. |
“It was this weird thing where I was like, ‘Why is
everyone sitting down? I feel like I’m being called
in the principal’s office,’” Bush tells The
Hollywood Reporter. But the actress wasn’t in
trouble after all. It turns out the producers wanted
to ask Bush to direct the penultimate episode of The
CW drama, which is finally ending after nine
“I burst into tears and acknowledged what an amazing
honor that was to be trusted with that,” she says.
INTERVIEW WITH 'ONE TREE HILL' MUSIC SUPERVISOR
via The Voice of TV -- One of the very best parts
of One Tree Hill has always been the music. The
songs are such a huge part of the show to the point
they are almost a character all in their own. The
OTH playlist on my iPod is nearly 200 songs deep and
I haven’t even skimmed the surface of all of the
show’s amazing tunes. One Tree Hill’s Music
Supervisor, Lindsay Wolfington (@lonewolflindsay on
Twitter) gets all of the credit for that as week
after week she delivers the musical goods for our
favorite show. And because she is just that awesome,
Lindsay was sweet enough to take some time out of
her busy schedule to answer a few of my questions.

The story of Renee Yohe is fascinating and since the
movie was filmed practically in my backyard, my
interest has skyrocketed.
“Renee” follows Yohe from her days in addiction to
the beginnings of her recovery, when friends Jamie
Tworkowski and David McKenna took her in, sobered
her up and got her into rehab.
“Renee” has was filmed in and around Orlando. From
downtown to Thornton Park to Full Sail University in
Winter Park. It’s a movie with a major buzz and has
the honor of being the opening night movie of the FL
Film Fest. It stars Chad Michael Murray (One Tree
Hill) and Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah’s Infinite
Playlist) as Renee.
“I have a lot of friends and some family who have
been through similar things,” Dennings said this
week, on location at a 1920s vintage private home in
Thornton Park. “When I read the script, I didn’t
think I could do it. Too difficult. But that told me
that I should do it.”
Murray, most famous for TV’s “One Tree Hill, says
“There’s this enigmatic thing about Renee that pulls
you in. She’s captivating. Kat has that. She’s a
very free spirit. She doesn’t care what people say.
She’s gone to very dark places for this and it’s
been a pleasure to watch her do it.” |

The CW is looking to stay in business with creator
Mark Schwahn, whose J.J. Abrams-produced pilot
"Shelter" is a contender for the fall schedule.

"It's still a little bit surreal," the
singer-actress admits in an exclusive interview with

SOPHIA BUSH wrapped up the final season of the
popular Wilmington drama, “One Tree Hill,” last
month. In the show, she plays Brooke Davis, the
creator of the fashion line, Clothes over Bros. But,
over the nine years of filming the show here, Bush
has grown up, had a hand at directing episodes and
developed her voice as an advocate for the
environment and other social issues close to her
“The people who are close to me – my friends, my
family – have listened to me talk their ear off
since I was a kid about environmental issues and
about justice issues around the world whether it be
on the subject of children or women’s rights or
poverty,” she said.
But, the Deep Water Horizon explosion and oil spill
in April 2010 was a defining moment when she decided
to speak out more publically through social media
about the need for environmental protection and
corporate responsibility. She traveled to the Gulf
Coast to witness the destruction first-hand. Since
then, she has partnered with environmental
organizations to raise awareness and funds. |

Throughout nine seasons of the CW series, Dan has
been the show's villain — he abandoned his son
Lucas, was punishingly tough on his other son
Nathan, and even murdered his brother Keith. In One
Tree Hill's final season, Dan has returned a
different man, one that viewers have started to take
pity on and even empathize with. Dan took a bullet
to save Nathan from a group of dangerous men who
took him hostage in last week's episode. But even
then, can Dan ever really be redeemed given his
horrible history? |

As most of you know, as much as I love to share
with you the magic of ordinary days, I am also very
private about my personal life. In fact, the only
reason I'm saying anything about this at all is
because you'll all be wondering soon why everyone is
calling me "Bethany Joy Lenz" again. I'm sorry to
say that Michael and I have decided to divorce. We
remain friendly and dedicated to raising our
beautiful girl in love and we appreciate your
prayers and support during this difficult time. I
feel immensely humbled and grateful that God works
all things for the good of those who love Him.

'ONE TREE HILL': HAS DAN SCOTT BEEN REDEEMED? WHY WE
STILL CAN'T FORGIVE HIM
via Zap2it -- Let me begin this rant by saying
that Dan Scott is one of the most interesting,
dimensional characters "One Tree Hill" has ever
seen, and Paul Johansson is a fantastic actor,
director, and all-around human being. He also has
very excellent hair. This isn't meant as a criticism
of Johansson at all.
It's also not meant as a criticism of "One Tree
Hill" executive producer Mark Schwahn or any of his
writing staff. It's simply a (very opinionated) look
at a character from a dedicated fan of the show.
(Because, for the record, I do really, really love
this show, and have since I was 16.) |
The actress, who plays Victoria, the icy mother of
fashion designer Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) on the
locally filmed show, didn’t elaborate at the time.
But I couldn’t help but wonder if the recent arrival
of Victoria’s ex-husband, played by Richard Burgi
(“Desperate Housewives”), might be the reason for
Zuniga’s word choice. Is it safe to assume that
Brooke’s mom and dad will be hopping into the sack?
“You can if you like,” a coy Zuniga told me recently
at a charity event in Los Angeles. “I’d go that way
if I were you, but I’m not going to be a spoiler.”
The nonprofit, an outreach ministry of the Episcopal
Church of the Servant, will host the “Second Chance

made him a three-named household name, and from the
looks of this exclusive behind-the-scenes snap, he's
done some changing. Unfortunately, we'll only get a
quick reunion for our boy Lucas and his bestie Haley
(the perpetually fabulous Bethany Joy Galeotti),
since CMM, who left back in '09, is only back for
the Feb. 22nd episode.
"Yeah, he came back for one," says executive
producer Mark Schwahn, quickly adding that fans
should not read into the brevity of Murray's stay.
In fact, it was Schwahn's idea to put his star
player back in the game for a single shot instead of
a longer arc. "I think he would have done more, but
I just felt that the story he's back for was best
served by one episode." |

has something to do with the hotness of her co-stars
and the possible lack of Hollywood-type bachelors in

'OTH' STAR LEE NORRIS TALKS MAKEUP, MOUTH'S JOURNEY
AND ... TEACHING?
via StarNews Online -- Each character on “One
Tree Hill” has changed over the show’s nine seasons.
They’ve grown older, wiser and more successful. But
at the start of season nine, one character was also
noticably thicker. Marvin “Mouth” McFadden started
this season about 60 pounds heavier than he eneded
season eight, thanks to a sudden zeal for food
that’s driving a wedge between him and his
“I never envisioned that’s where my story was
going,” says Lee Norris, who has played Mouth since
the show’s pilot episode and now performs his scenes
buried under prothstetic makeup and extra padding.
I recently chatted with Norris at a CW event in
Pasadena about the locally filmed show’s legacy, his
North Carolina roots and what his future might hold.

"Mouth has no idea what's wrong," Lisa Goldstein
tells TVGuide.com. "He hasn't taken a good look at
himself in the mirror and Millie is struggling with
how to tell him."
Although last week's episode lightly addressed the
plotline, both Goldstein and Lee Norris say the
problem will be treated more seriously. "Obviously
he's unhappy; otherwise, he wouldn't be eating
everything he sees," Goldstein says. "Millie gets a
little insensitive, but Mouth needs a push in the
right direction. At the heart of it, Millie is
concerned with his well-being, not how he looks."

Sophia Bush won the challenge, which ran for a
month, in support of F- Cancer, raising $117,405.
Seth Rogen and Hilarity for Charity came in a close

SEASON 9 SCOOP: NATHAN IS 'POWERLESS TO CONTROL HIS
FATE' via Hollywood Life -- The final season of One
Tree Hill is going to be an intense one for all of
our favorite characters, but it sounds like Nathan
(James Lafferty) is going to have a particularly
rough go of things. And since we ve all heard the
rumors about his mysterious disappearance from Tree
Hill, HollywoodLife.com couldn t help but ask him
for more details.
Nathan gets into a situation where he s powerless
to control his fate, which is not something he s
used to dealing with, James tells us. It s
probably his biggest test yet.
But before he makes his temporary exit from Tree
Hill, Nathan will have dear old daddy Dan (Paul
Johansson) to deal with, which is another storyline
James promises gets tricky. |
As the resident villain, Dan (Paul Johansson) has
long been shunned by his son Nathan (James Lafferty)
and his family, but on the Season 9 premiere a much
more broken-down Dan returned to town in hopes of
convincing Nathan and his wife Haley to help him to
get back on his feet.
"In the past, Dan's presence has brought a lot of
turmoil and conflict, but this year, the way he
colors Nathan's life is much, much different,"
Lafferty tells TVGuide.com. "Nathan's actually going
to need Dan a bit more this year." |

SOPHIA BUSH DISAPPOINTED IN OBAMA, SCARED OF GOP
FIELD via FOX News -- One Tree Hill star Sophia
Bush has long been involved in political issues,
including touring college campuses to encourage
young people to vote to making appearances in Texas
in support of the 2008 Obama campaign.
Apparently Bush even contemplated a career in
politics herself, until coming to the conclusion she
couldn t make much of a difference.
I certainly have thought about it (moving into
politics) but the more that I know of politics, the
more it makes me realize that being a politician is
largely useless, Bush told FOX411 s Pop Tarts
column at InStyle s Forevermark Diamond Preview at
the Beverly Hills Hotel. |

'ONE TREE HILL' STARS REFLECT ON NINE-SEASON RUN via Hollywood Reporter -- Nine seasons.
Nearly 200 episodes. That will be One Tree Hill's
legacy in a nutshell when the CW officially closes
the book on the long-running drama in a few months.
"It’s done. All the stages have been torn down,"
James Lafferty (Nathan) told The Hollywood Reporter
at a Television Critics Assoc. party celebrating the
show Thursday. "It’s the end of the road and we’ve
crossed the finish line. You get more of a sense of
accomplishment than you do sadness."
Production on the final season wrapped in October
but it still hasn't sunk in yet for Lafferty and
company, many of whom -- along with executive
producers Mark Schwahn, who told THR season 9 will
be "dark," and Joe Davola -- showed up to the

quite a journey," Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley) said

A QUICK REVIEW OF EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED IN
EIGHT SEASONS OF OTH via NY Mag --One Tree Hill begins its
ninth and final season tonight, and even though it
started as a relatively run-of-the-mill teen soap,
it's become a lunatic fiesta that would make a
daytime soap blush and makes the racier ABC Family
dramas look like guidebooks to being Amish. On the
off chance you want to catch up before tonight's
premiere, here's your handy condensed guide to
everything that's happened on One Tree Hill, from
comas to shootings to graduation labors to dogs
eating hearts to more shootings.
Lucas and Nathan are half-brothers who don't like
each other, but do like girls — often the same
girls, Peyton, Haley, and Brooke — and basketball.
They fight, they get held at gunpoint, Peyton's
father gets lost at sea, Lucas falls into a coma,
Brooke has a pregnancy scare, and then Haley and
Nathan get teen-married. |
While some folks may feel that One Tree Hill has
passed its prime, there are those diehard fans who
still think life in the small town that survived the
WB-CW merger could go on and on. Like Celine Dion's
heart. Only with super-sensitive voice-overs and
For those of us who tuned in to the final season's
premiere last night, that belief was only compounded
by the pile of stories that were set up to help
drive this last batch of episodes. In the opening
three minutes alone, we got flash-forwarded glimpses
of mayhem to come that could fuel an entire 10th
Our story takes place in the fertile, San Joaquin
Valley. Fueled by gin and sheer determination,
Elizabeth James (Ms. Liz) operates her third
generation dairy farm outside the region's
domineering co-ops. To help keep the place afloat,
she's employed five renegade ranch hands. These boys
have put a pin in responsibility and opted to
stretch out the party as long as possible.
Unfortunately, women, booze, and fisticuffs can only
lead to one outcome: trouble. With the dairy farm
reporting its third straight deficit year, Ms Liz is
attracting some unwanted attention. Delbert Furgeson,
the owner of the area's largest co-op, is pushing to
buy her out. This only incenses the prideful Ms Liz
and starts a volatile feud between the two. Sharing
the narrative are the ranch hands. Randel and Rooker
Lee are brothers caught in the crossfire of their
parents' separation. Leslie Williams and Jackie
Remmington are aspiring musicians, trying not to get
caught up in their own success. Wade Kitchanski is
at ends with his father, striving to find his own
path outside the family paint business. As the boys
struggle to find direction, Ms Liz and Delbert
Furgeson launch into a full-blown war. When the dust
settles, we realize it's not simply a story about
winners and losers or finding your way. It's about
purpose: to find what you believe in, through
change, through loss, even if it's the small things.
Then hold on to it and fight for it, because in the
end that's all you have.
It posted the best numbers in that timeslot for the
CW since spring, though Wednesday is admittedly one
of the network’s weakest nights. The premiere
episode delivered a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, a 1.2
adults 18-34 rating and a 1.8 women 18-34 rating, a
demo that The CW covets. In all, 1.75 million
viewers watched the premiere at 8 p.m.. A 9 p.m.

season, but again, the numbers were up over the
reality programming that had been airing in that
slot last year. |
And while not too much about the show’s
heart-tugging tendencies will change in the show’s
final season, which kicks off tonight, he didn’t
take the opportunity to go out on bold terms
lightly. “I felt like we had to worry less about our
safety net so we could take more risks on the high
wire,” says Schwahn. |
TRAGEDY, TRANSFORMATION AND COUPLES IN TURMOIL: WHAT
TO EXPECT FROM ONE TREE HILL'S LAST SEASON via TV Guide -- While One Tree Hill may be
known for soapy plotlines mixed in with a few psycho
killers (RIP, Nanny Carrie), the heart of the series
has always been the relationships. As the show
embarks on its ninth and final season, we were on
the set with the cast as they warned that it's
definitely not all rainbows and butterflies for the
core couples. From Nathan's absence to an accident
involving one of Brooke and Julian's babies, see
what to expect when One Tree Hill returns
(Wednesday, 8/7c, The CW).
Nathan and Haley: When the show picks up, Haley is
back to being a working mom now that she and Brooke
have reopened Karen's Café. But as Bethany Joy
Galeotti tells us, things quickly unravel from her
"very glam, small-town entrepreneurial mom life."|
As "One Tree Hill" begins its explosive final
season, we thought we'd spend a little time looking
back over some of the best and worst moments of a
series that has spanned nearly a decade.
We got some help from tons of fans, as well as some
of the stars of the show, to wrangle the most
romantic, ridiculous, powerful, cheesy,
heartbreaking, and hopeful moments from all eight
seasons so far. First kisses, last dances, births,
and deaths have gotten us to the beginning of Season
9 -- and Tree Hill is still in for some serious
shake-ups before the final goodbye. |
HURRAH WITH TEARS, LAUGHTER, AND A HEART-BREAKING
MYSTERY via The TV Addict --Is ONE TREE HILL
looking to go out with a bang or a pretty wrapped
bow as it ends its 9th season? From all indications
from the two-minute teaser which jump-starts this
final season, and from the cryptic remarks of the
cast and creator, fans better be prepared to break
out the Kleenex. The body under a white sheet in the
morgue make be the best clue, but given the number
of tears shed at a special sneak peek screening of
ONE TREE HILL’s 9th season opener by the cast last
week, one of the show’s beloved characters is not
going to make it through the season.
It was both a joyful reunion and a night of
misty-eyes as the cast of ONE TREE HILL watched the
screening with fans and talked afterwards about some
of their favorite memories. In fact, one fan was so
choked up by how much the show touched her heart
that she was unable to speak and it prompted star
Sophia Bush to rush to her aid with a handy tissue.
One Tree Hill’s creator Mark Schwahn has said that
the last 13 episodes "will be dark" compared to the
most recent seasons of the CW drama.
The first few minutes of the first episode seem to
prove him right. The characters are each thrown into
what looks like hell and havoc. There’s fighting and
crying, a burning building and Haley standing in the
morgue over a dead body.
Schwahn wouldn’t tell The Hollywood Reporter much
about the mystery death. “I will say that we won’t
end the season with the cast that we start with, and
I think for fans of the show, that will be emotional
and powerful,” he said. “I think in One Tree Hill,
rarely is all what it seems, so there’s always that
to factor in.” |

wardrobe. (You're welcome, America!) Plus, he

'IT'S BY FAR NATHAN'S WORST YEAR' via Zap2it -- In the opening moments of
tonight's "One Tree Hill" season premiere, the
audience immediately realizes that our favorite
characters are in for a harrowing, heartbreaking
thirteen episodes. Still, Nathan, Haley, Brooke, and

whatever is thrown at them at this point.

But I did see the episode last week at a screening
in Hollywood, and I’ll tell you it’s easily the best
episode of the show since last season’s “Darkness at
the Edge of Town.”
Mark Schwahn has promised a final season that is
basically one long story arc (or really several long
story arcs for different character sets). If the
first episode of the final season is any indication,
it’s a conceit that has reinvigorated the show. |
VANSANTEN & SAVANNAH OUTEN -TEAM TRUE BEAUTY via ClevverTV -- Some of Hollywood’s finest
stepped out over the weekend in support of Team True
Beauty, an amazing organization with a mission to
show the world that real beauty isn’t defined by
what’s on the outside.
For Team True Beauty’s One Year Anniversary, the
organization threw an incredible party at the Avalon
The night featured a meet and greet with some of the
entertainment world’s top stars, including Cassie
Scerbo, Josie Loren, Bethany Galeotti, Daphne
Zuniga, Sara Paxton as well as several stellar
performances, including one from our good friend on
ClevverTV, Savannah Outen!
“One Tree Hill” star Shantel VanSanten is TTB’s
celebrity ambassador, and her heartfelt words at the
event were very inspiring. |
ONE TREE HILL RETURNS
TOMORROW!! Wednesday, January 11th at 8pm/7c. Be there.
TV ALERT! TV ALERT! Tonight/Tomorrow you can

Craig Ferguson'. Then tomorrow morning James
Lafferty will be appearing on

Season Premiere. Make sure all of you in LA tune in
HILARIE BURTON TO APPEAR ON
'CASTLE' As if One Tree Hill returning was excitement
enough, and while she won't be returning to Tree
Hill you can still catch Hilarie Burton as she
will be guest starring on ABC's "Castle" later this
month, as a reality TV star 'Kay Cappuccio', based
off of Kim Kardashian. Make sure you tune in Monday,
January 23rd to watch. |
CASTLE - "An Embarrassment of Bitches" - When a
famous dog trainer is killed, the investigation
keeps coming back to charismatic reality TV star Kay
Cappuccio (guest star Hilarie Burton, "White
Collar"). Kay, a favorite of tabloids and gossip
websites the world over, has achieved stardom
without possessing any discernible skill or talent.
But there seems to be more to her story than she is
letting on -- does that include murder? -- on
"Castle," MONDAY, JANUARY 23 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET),
on the ABC Television Network. Justin Hartley ("Smallville")
guest stars as Reggie Starr, Kay's boyfriend, and

'ONE TREE HILL' SEASON 9 SCOOP: THE STARS REVEAL 8
MAJOR SECRETS via HollywoodLife.com -- Well, kids, the day
we’ve looked forward to — and also dreaded — is
almost here. The final season of One Tree Hill
premieres at 8 p.m. tomorrow (Jan. 11) on The CW,
and I was fortunate enough to be on the show’s
Wilmington, N.C., set to get the scoop straight from
the stars! Bethany Joy Galeotti sums the whole thing
up pretty nicely (“near death experiences, jealousy,
psychotic breakdowns, post-traumatic stress”), but
let’s see what the other residents of Tree Hill have
to say about what they’ll be up to during the show’s
final run. |

so read at your own risk!

"LOL: LAUGHING OUT LOUD"
The first released trailer for Miley Cyrus and Demi
Moore's new film "LOL: Laughing Out Loud" has
finally been released! The film, which is a remake
of a 2008 French comedy, is centered around a mother
and daughter's relationship and how their world is
influenced by peer pressure and the world wide web.
LOL also stars Douglas Booth ("Romeo and Juliet"),
Austin Nichols ("One Tree Hill"), and Ashley Greene
(The "Twilight" Saga). Here's the official synopsis:
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and
Facebook, Lola (Cyrus) and her friends navigate the
peer pressures of high school romance and friendship
while dodging their sometimes overbearing and
Austin plays the 'hot' teacher -- as he's refer to
in the trailer! Check it out below.
'OTH' FANS FORM LASTING FRIENDSHIPS via StarNews Online -- When Cathrine Jakobsen
made the 24-hour trek from Norway to Wilmington to
get a glimpse of the inner workings of "One Tree
Hill," she knew it would be a trip to remember. What
she didn't anticipate were the long-term friendships
that would form while she was here.
"My visit was amazing. I made some great friends
that I know I'll always have with me," said Jakobsen,
22, who lives in Oslo and has followed the show
since its third season. "I still talk to them almost
every day through Facebook."
Jakobsen is one of thousands of members of the "One
Tree Hill family," a close-knit group of fans who
connect daily through social networking sites,
exchanging messages of love, support and friendship.
On Twitter, users end their messages with the
hashtag "#OTHfamily" and consider themselves close
friends, but most don't live in the same cities and
have never met in person. |
'ONE TREE HILL' FINALE COUNTDOWN With the finale season premiere around the
corner, many have taken a trip down memory lane with
list of best of the best for the series, like
best villian. But have you been following
Ology's countdown of best moments for each season?
If not, here's the rundown list below. Check 'em out
and see if you agree or disagree.

first three episode descriptions.
ACTORS FOUND A HOME ON 'ONE TREE HILL' via StarNews Online -- Back in 2003, when
"One Tree Hill" was just an idea, employees of
Wilmington-based casting agency Fincannon &
Associates had several roles they were trying to
fill for a new series.
For these parts, the Fincannons looked at regional
actors and decided on some from right here in the
"We read hundreds of people throughout the
Southeast," Lisa Mae Wells Fincannon said in a 2003
interview. "Really, the entire Eastern Seaboard."
She'd said the producers were interested in making
the show, set in a fictional North Carolina town
called Tree Hill, as authentic as possible and were
interested in local actors.
Nine years later, many faces you may see around town
are a part of the legacy of "One Tree Hill." |
TREE HILL' EXCLUSIVE PIC: TYLER HILTON REVIVES CHRIS
KELLER via Zap2it -- Over the summer, Zap2it was the
first to tell you that Tyler Hilton was returning to
"One Tree Hill" as the always controversial Chris
Keller... and now we've got the first pic of a new,
matured, more sophisticated Chris Keller in Season
Okay, so we're lying about the maturity thing. Chris
Keller returns in the season premiere in a flurry of
juvenile jokes, and we promise, you'll feel like he
never left. (And, more importantly, you'll wish he'd
First thing is first: Don't worry, Keller isn't in
town to break up Haley and Nathan. We visited the
Wilmington, NC set in September and got the scoop
from Hilton himself. "When [news broke] that I was
coming back, everybody was like 'So excited! So
excited! If you break up Nathan and Haley I'm going
to kill you,'" he jokes. "I was hoping for a nanny
position in the family. I don't think they want me
anywhere near that." |
OLOGY SPENDS AN EVENING
WITH 'ONE TREE HILL' via Ology -- I had a headache as I woke up
Friday morning, a legitimate headache, from all the
emotion that poured out Thursday night at "An
Evening with One Tree Hill" in L.A. Yes, I'm a
writer, but I was there as a fan of the show too --
a show that has gotten a lot of criticism over the
course of its 9-year run. And a show that will be
missed dearly when it ends this Spring.
Watch the first two minutes of the premiere right
"We jumped the shark years ago," creator Mark
Schwahn admitted with a laugh. "For some people the
show was a guilty pleasure. We were never a critical
darling. After 187 episodes, whoever is still hating
on the show is losing the battle."
Granted critics were seemingly always harsh, OTH
pulled in ratings year after year. And it's built
one of the most dedicated fan bases surrounding
television today, one that shed tears with the cast
and crew as we said goodbye to the series that
TRUE BEAUTY - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Tonight was the
Team True Beauty 1st Anniversary Event in Los
Angeles, in attendance were One Tree Hill's Daphne

'ONE TREE HILL'S' IMPACT
FELT BEYOND TV SHOW via StarNews Online -- "One Tree Hill" was
more than just a beloved TV series shot in
The show's tentacles reached to the four corners of
Wilmington's film community keeping crew – ranging
from prop masters to carpenters – employed and
allowing the area to recruit future productions.
Essentially, "One Tree Hill" kept the Wilmington
film community in business. Crew members said
everybody in the community worked on the show at
some point during its nine-year-run. |
NEED TO CATCH UP ON "ONE
TREE HILL"? FANS RECOMMEND THESE ESSENTIAL EPISODES via StarNews Online -- Locally filmed drama
series “One Tree Hill” returns for its ninth and
final season Wednesday.
If you’ve never seen the show, it can be hard to
jump in to the story after eight seasons of love,
death, betrayal, and basketball. So we asked the
show’s loyal legion of fans to help us choose a list
of “essential” episodes that could help newbies
catch up on the show and serve as a highlight reel
of all the series embodies. Fans voted a few years
ago on the eps from the first six seasons, then we
updated the vote this summer to add eps from seasons
seven and eight.
Thousands of online votes later, the episodes below
rose to the top. As expected, there are plenty of
season finales (when big, important moments tend to
happen), but there’s also a good mix of humor,
romance and over-the-top drama – all of the things
that kept “One Tree Hill” fans coming back for 174
episodes and looking forward to 13 more. |
So, last night was the California "Evening with One
Tree Hill" event, those in attendance were able to
view the season premiere before anyone else as well
as a Q&A session with Mark and cast members.
Thanks to StarNews Online's
Jeff Hidek and Zap2it's
Carina MacKenzie, we were all kept
up-to-date with the live tweets from the event. If
you weren't able to follow along on Twitter or
attend last night, no worries, read the wrap up post
and view some awesome

SEASON 9 IS 'DARKER AND MORE NAKED': FIVE THINGS TO
EXPECT FROM THE EMOTIONAL PREMIERE via Zap2it -- "One Tree Hill" fans, we had
the unique opportunity to watch the Season 9
premiere tonight, in a room full of fans, with many
of the series' cast members sitting alongside us.
Let's just say that several hours later, there are
still tears in our eyes -- both from the episode and
from the cast Q&A afterward.
We'll give you a full rundown of the Q&A in a later
article, but we couldn't go to sleep without filling
you in on some key details from the powerful
episode. Here are five things you can expect from
the season premiere. |
ARE HAPPY 'ONE TREE HILL'
COUPLES A THING OF THE PAST? ANTAGONISM RUNS RAMPANT via Zap2it -- "One Tree Hill" fans, there's
less than a week before you'll finally get to watch
the Season 9 premiere -- the last first episode
ever! We're thrilled to share the new teaser with
you above, but we'll warn you -- it's not going to
make the wait any easier. This is absolutely the
most harrowing two minutes we see in the episode.
If you want some dish on the premiere, we've posted
every spoiler we're allowed to share right here --
but we do have lots more scoop from Thursday night's
"One Tree Hill" panel in Los Angeles. Cast members
Paul Johansson, Tyler Hilton, Bethany Joy Galeotti,
Sophia Bush, Shantel VanSanten, Robert Buckley,
Jackson Brundage, Stephen Colletti, and Lee Norris
joined exec producer Mark Schwahn (and moderator Meg
Masters) for a fantastic Q&A that revealed plenty
about the next season.
First of all, if Season 8 was about major milestones
for many of the couples and about everyone finding a
relatively happy ending in Tree Hill, Season 9 puts
the happy couple thing aside.
Don't get us wrong -- the couples are still together
and going strong. Early on, though, their happiness
is tested, big time, by a series of scary events.
TREE HILL" CAST AND CREW GO HOLLYWOOD FOR Q&A,
SCREENING via StarNews Online -- Cast and crew members
of the locally filmed drama series “One Tree Hill”
gathered with about 200 fans of the series to watch
a special screening of the ninth (and final) season
premiere Thursday, Jan. 5, at the ArcLight movie
theater in Hollywood.
After the screening, the stars stuck around for a
Q&A moderated by TVLine.com’s Meg Masters and to
take questions from the audience. It was similar to
an event held in October at the University of North
Carolina Wilmington just before the show wrapped
In attendance at the ArcLight were series creator
Mark Schwahn and actors Sophia Bush, Bethany Joy
Galeotti, Paul Johansson, Shantel VanSanten, Rob
Buckley, Jackson Brundage, Tyler Hilton, Lee Norris
and Stephen Colletti.
The cast teased a bit of what will happen in the
ninth season, which Schwahn called his favorite yet.
Returning to the show full time this season is
Hilton, who plays bad boy musician Chris Keller, who
has not appeared regularly since season two.
“It was like going back to high school five years
later,” Hilton said of rejoining the show. |
ONE TREE HILL FINAL SEASON
SCOOP: WHAT DOES THE BEGINNING OF THE END LOOK LIKE? via E! Online -- By the end of the first few
minutes of One Tree Hill's season-nine premiere, our
eyes were wide open in shock. By the end of the cast
Q&A that followed, our eyes were filled with tears.
And that is pretty much One Tree Hill's final season
in a nutshell: shock and tears. Based on the first
episode and what creator Mark Schwahn had to say
about the end of OTH, fans will be in for quite a
Since this show is mostly about the couples and the
drama that comes to their lives, we thought we'd
break down what to expect when OTH returns to our TV
lives (next Wednesday!) for one last time |

Nearly the entire current cast of the ninth and

dress with an asymmetric hem from the Spring/Summer
2012 collection by Kimberly Ovitz that she layered

little definition. |
SOPHIA BUSH BRINGS BROOKE DAVIS TO LIFE ONE LAST
TIME via Zap2it -- Confession: When Sophia Bush
tweeted her final photo from the "One Tree Hill" set
on the night that the series wrapped for good, we
started crying. In public. It wasn't exactly our
While the series may have ended for Sophia, though,
we can look forward to 13 final episodes with Brooke
Davis (and the rest of the gang, of course) before
we officially say goodbye. We were lucky enough to
visit Sophia and her co-stars in Wilmington back in
September, when we sat down with Sophia and got the
scoop on her last weeks with B. Davis.
When Season 9 begins, we meet Brooke in a very happy
place as she and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) bring
back a bit of nostaglia for themselves -- and the
fans -- at Karen's Café. "It's great that she and
Haley have come together to start this café. Joy and
I were having so much fun that first episode,"
Sophia says, sitting with us in the "Naley" house
living room set as thunder raged outside the studio.
"We had this whole rhythm down -- how we would move,
and where we could keep our aprons, and what we'd do
to make it look like we'd done it a million times
already. That's really great for [Brooke], and it's
such a tie to the community and where she grew up.
Brooke, more than anyone, has wanted nothing more
than to be in her home. So I love her having that,
and I love Brooke and Haley having that partnership,
because they're such good friends." |
STAR SHANTEL VANSANTEN WILL EMPOWER YOU! via The Insider -- For the last three years,
Shantel VanSanten has been breathing life into the
fascinatingly complex Quinn on One Tree Hill. But
with the series' final 13 episodes set to air
starting January 11, Shantel began to look to the
future and what she wanted to do next.
Launched in January of 2011, the organization was
started to further raise awareness on the dangers of
eating disorders and promote the importance of inner
beauty, positive self-esteem and positive ways to
deal with body image insecurities. The issue is so
close to Shantel's heart, she was recently made the
campaign's Celebrity True Beauty Ambassador with her
own column in the monthly newsletter. Shantel will
be giving a speech at a Team True Beauty event on
January 7 in Los Angeles (details here [Link])
and recently took a few minutes out of her day to
speak with TheInsider.com.
We not only chatted about the importance of
organizations like Team True Beauty, but also about
what her fans can expect from the upcoming final
season of One Tree Hill -- which Shantel calls
"amazing crazy." |

BETHANY JOY GALEOTTI ASSURES US THAT 'NALEY' IS
STILL GOING STRONG via Zap2it -- After so many years on the air,
the "One Tree Hill" set functions like a well-oiled
machine, and rarely do members of the press factor
into that. To say that we were thrilled when Zap2it
was invited to Wilmington, NC to watch a bit of
filming for the final season of the show is an
We visited while cast member Austin Nichols was
directing the 7th episode of the season, and our
first day on set afforded us the chance to watch
Bethany Joy Galeotti film emotional scenes with her
returning pal Chad Michael Murray. Yes, Lucas and
Haley's BFFdom has endured despite his absence (and
the fact that he never returned any of her letters
-- a fact that plagued Murray a bit when he read the
In the scenes we watched, Haley wasn't in the most
stable frame of mind, but Joy assures us that it's
not all doom and gloom for Haley this season. When
we catch up with her in the premiere, she's enjoying
her growing family and the new/old business she
shares with Brooke (Sophia Bush). "This season Haley
has decided to, as we saw at the end of Season 8,
reopen Karen's Café. She renovated Clothes Over Bros
after Brooke had her financial catastrophe, and so
she and Brooke went into business together. Haley is
diving into that.She's got a daughter, she's got a
son, her husband is traveling, it's sort of a very
glam, small-town entrepreneurial mom life for
However, unlike Season 8, this final season of "OTH"
isn't all about the laughs. "Things very quickly
start to unravel," Joy admits. At first, it's
manageable -- another local café owner, played by
"Dancing With The Stars" alum Chelsea Kane, gives
Brooke and Haley some not-so-friendly competition,
and hijinks ensue. |

THE CW TEAMS WITH UJ.J.
ABRAMS & 'OTH' CREATOR MARK SCHWAHN FOR HOTEL DRAMA via Deadline -- EXCLUSIVE: J.J. Abrams is
headed to the CW. In his first stint at the
5-year-old network, the top writer-producer-director
has teamed up with Mark Schwahn, creator/executive
producer/showrunner of the CW s long-running drama
One Tree Hill. The power pair has sold a hotel drama
to the CW, which will instantly become one of the
the network s highest-profile projects this
development season. Schwahn will write the show,
tentatively titled Maine, which is set at an inn in
Maine and revolves around the staff and the inn s
guests. Abrams and Schwahn will executive produce
with Bryan Burk for Warner Bros TV, Abrams
studio-based Bad Robot and Schwahn s Mastermind
Laboratories. In scope, the character-based drama,
which has received a script commitment, harkens to
Schwahn s OTH, which will end its nine-year run
early next year, and Abrams Felicity. This also
marks a homecoming of sorts for Abrams, who started
his TV career on the CW predecessor the WB with
Felicity. For Schwahn, the project stems from a
script deal with WBTV. |
BETHANY JOY GALEOTTI FINDING POST-SERIES LIFE 'SUCH
A CHANGE' via Zap2it -- Bethany Joy Galeotti confirms
it's not easy to say goodbye to Wilmington, N.C.,
but the recent end of filming "One Tree Hill" there
made it necessary.
The cast has scattered as the Wednesday, Jan. 11,
premiere of the CW drama series' ninth and final
season nears. It promises new dilemmas for Haley
James Scott (Galeotti) and her husband Nathan (James
Lafferty), thanks in no small part to his
ever-scheming father Dan (Paul Johansson).
"I was less emotional than I thought I'd be on the
last day," Galeotti tells Zap2it, "but I think it
came out in other ways. I'd be at home doing my
laundry and not be able to find something, and I'd
burst into tears. It's hard to see photos from the
set and think, 'I'm never going to be in a room with
all the same people again.' |
FROM TELEVISION TO TELLING
STORIES: CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY TACKLES HIS FIRST
GRAPHIC NOVEL via Ology -- Chad Michael Murray is someone
who has tackled the acting world pretty fiercely
over the last 10 years. From starring on CW favorite
One Tree Hill to landing leads in major films
alongside actresses like Lindsay Lohan, Hilary
Duff and Jamie Lee Curtis, Chad more or less has
Hollywood firmly in his back pocket. So, like anyone
would be, I was skeptical upon hearing that he had
written a graphic novel -- not a novel or memoir,
mind you. It wouldn't be much of a challenge for the
30-year-old seasoned actor to ghost-write a book
like so many of his peers, trying to capitalize on
their fame while they can. Chad chose a genre that
is very much critical and protective of its own
kind. A ballsy move. And he did it because he likes
to write, which I can't help but admire.
One of the many perks of my job is getting to meet
and interview talented people and celebrities with
whom in normal circumstances I'd never even breathe
the same air. So when I heard that Chad was stopping
in New York City for a signing, of course I had to
be there. And walking into Barnes and Noble on the
Upper East Side was like walking into a cooler,
tamer version of a rock concert. The fans were just
like any -- passionate, kinda nuts and just wanted a
glimpse at him -- but more importantly, they were
devoted and genuinely excited to crack open Everlast,
his very first novel. |
RIP RIVER COURT: "ONE TREE
HILL" LANDMARK BEING REMOVED via StarNews Online -- It was more than just
a patch of concrete.
For the past nine years, fans of the locally filmed
drama series One Tree Hill have made pilgrimages
to the maksehift basketball court in Battleship Park
across the river from downtown Wilmington.
Now, the river court, as it was known on the show,
is being torn up.
Crews worked on the court Monday, cutting through
The show finished filming its ninth and final season
a couple weeks ago, so there was no more use for the
court. Fans, however, hoped it would stick around as
a memorial to the show they loved. A petition was
started but time was not on fans side.
It s unclear how quickly it will take crews to
remove all traces of the court from the park, and
rainy weather could interrupt their work. So if
you ve been hoping for one last pilgrimage to the
court, you better hurry. |
#GOODBYE RIVERCOURT So sad. Even before Season 9 officially even
begins it feels like goodbye. The Rivercourt is
being removed, so heartbreaking to see the photo
Sophia tweeted just a few days ago.
"#GoodbyeRivercourt I know that nothing lasts
forever, but this hurts my heart. At least we loved
it for so long ... To whomever owns the property,
thank you so much for letting us have it for nine
wonderful years. It was a magical place." -
END OF 'ONE TREE HILL'
LEAVES DOWNTOWN WITH EMPTY FEELING via Greater Wilmington Business Journal --
The hit television series One Tree Hill may have
left a lasting impression in the hearts of
Wilmingtonians and worldwide viewers alike, but one
thing it will certainly leave the Port City in the
coming days is a bigger glut in downtown office
More than 16,000-square feet of potential office and
retail space will be for the taking as One Tree
Hill actors, crew members, directors and their cash
say farewell to the Port City.
The new vacancies come at a time when greater
Wilmington s commercial real estate sector, while
improving, remains sluggish. And moving new tenants
into new office space remains challenging as the
region tries to pick up the pieces after the Great
Recession and real estate crash. |
It's kind of strange knowing that this will be the
last time we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving while there's still a new season of One Tree Hill on the horizon.
We're thankful for our family, our friends, and all
of our blessings.
We're also thankful for Mark Schwahn and Joe Davola's story, vision, and talent
that brought us this 'little show that could'. We're
thankful for this cast (past and present), this crew, all of our
visitors, and the friends we have made over the last
eight + years.
We wish those who celebrate Turkey Day,
that you have a wonderful and fulfilling one.

HILARIE BURTON EXCITED TO
TAKE A 'RADICALLY DIFFERENT' KIND OF ROLE via
TVLine.com -- Hilarie Burton is set to
guest-star on Castle at midseason, and the actress
tells me the gig has her excited for multiple
reasons -- one being that she is "definitely a fan"
of ABC's Monday-night cop drama.
Burton also points out that her Castle episode will
play host to a One Tree Hill reunion of sorts,
seeing as Tom Wright -- who directed several episodes
of the CW sudser -- will be calling the shots as she
plays Kay Cappuccio, a Kardashian-like reality star
who is famous forâ€¦ well, no discernible reason.
"He is one of my favorite One Tree Hill directors,
so I'm really looking forward to working with him
again," Burton effuses. "And this time playing
someone so radically different!"

Now that "One Tree Hill" has officially wrapped

Obviously fans of OTH are outraged and don't believe

Earlier this morning, Bethany Joy Galeotti
posted an entry on her official blog where she
explained that she was in rehearsal for her final
scenes as Haley James Scott, and that it would be
taking place on the Karen's Cafe rooftop.
It appears as though her final scene was also the
final one for Jackson Brundage as her on-screen son,
Jamie Scott. Joy
posted this photo of the two of them together.
It has been such a joy to watch Bethany play
out this role for so many years. She got married
while on this show, and also became a mother. As
fans and loyal viewers, we felt like we've lived out
so many huge moments with her on and off-screen --
it's going to be difficult not to have her part of
our lives on-screen, but thankfully Twitter and
blogs will allow us not to officially part ways.
If OTH had ended in season four as it almost did, we
would have never been introduced to Jackson as James
Lucas Scott. Boy, are we glad that didn't happen!
We say "goodnight" to these characters -- and on
January 11, 2012 we'll look forward to watching each
of the final thirteen episodes -- we won't say

ONE TREE HILL: THE
COUNTDOWN TO THE END As you all should know by now -- it's the final
week of filming for One Tree Hill. During the
final week, the cast has been posting photos from
set as they officially wrap in special locations
we've grown to love over nearly a decade. We've been
keeping our tears at bay as best as we could, but
there has definitely been some spillage.
It's bittersweet to see the show coming to a close
-- but as they say "all good things must come to an
end". Of course, that doesn't make this any easier.
There have been many spoilers from the cast, and

INTERVIEW: LEE NORRIS TALKS SEASON 9 OF "ONE TREE

("Mouth") about the final season of One Tree Hill,
the fate of his character, and his childhood role on
Boy Meets World! We've posted a brief bit of
the interview below, but you can read it in its
entirety by clicking here!
Oh my god! This is so sad! At least we know
it's the end this time though. Has it hit you yet?
I don't think it's going to hit until it's like
time to come back after Christmas break like normal,
and we don't actually come back. I think that's when
it's really going to sink in. We're going to finish
just in time for the holidays; normally we would
have like a holiday break and come back after to
finish the rest of the season, but we're only doing
13 episodes this season, so...
Yeah, and I think we're all happy just to get the
13, though. Absolutely! It's like you said,
we're thrilled that we actually know [it's ending].
Especially for those of us who have been around
since the beginning, it's been a lot of waiting, and
never knowing whether we were saying goodbye
forever. So it's really nice. And we're all happy,
because we feel we've told some good stories, and
taken it just about as far as you can take anything.
And we're all sad to say goodbye to each other, but

JOY GALEOTTI PLAYS '20 QUESTIONS' WITH SOPHIA BUSH!
Bethany Joy Galeotti has been conducting mini
interviews with her friends and co-stars on her
personal blog. She's talked with a few of her
co-stars, and most recently she played "20
Questions" with Sophia Bush!
Check out some Sophia's answers below...
Were You Named After Anyone? I was named after
Sophia Loren. My father is a photographer, and when
I was born he was frequently doing photoshoots with
her. Both of my parents adore her, and loved her
spunk, elegance, and unique femininity. Plus it's a
very traditional Italian name. They wanted to honor
my heritage, and inspire those qualities in me. I
loved hearing as a child that I was named after such
a special lady.
2 Do You Like Your Own Handwriting? Actually,
I'm not really a fan of my handwriting. My mother
has the most gorgeous penmanship I've ever seen, and
my writing is more of a chicken scratch. I generally
write in all capital letters so that people stand a
3 What Would Your Superpower be if you could
choose one? It's a tie for me. I'd love to be able
to fly, so that I could get anywhere in an instant,
and have a zero carbon footprint when I travel. But
I'd also love it if I never had to sleep. Can you
imagine what could be done if you could use all 24
hours in every day!?
4 Are you an Optimist or Pessimist? I am an
eternal optimist. So much so that I get incredibly
worked up over injustice and inequality. I believe
in the good in people and the world. And I really
believe that if our youth mobilize to be a force of
equality, and a contingency of caring souls, we can
truly change the world. I know that is incredibly
optimistic, but I believe it down to the core of my
5 What do you collect? I collect vintage
cameras. I have a few that are incredibly old, and
so beautiful. They're both a nod to my family and to
the beauty & panache of Old Hollywood. Movie magic,
the inspiration I find in photographs, it all begins
with a camera.

The shoot marks the return of the Burning Boat

ET ONLINE: CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY TURNS AUTHOR
via ET Online -- When it comes to
multi-hyphenates, Chad Michael Murray is right up
there with the big boys. Best known as an actor, he
has also directed and written episodic television as
well as performed on feature film soundtracks. Now,
the One Tree Hill star -- who is returning to The CW
show for a one-off appearance in early 2012 -- has
just released a short story, Flight of the
Cormorant: An Everlast Story.
"For the last eight years I ve loved and grown with
this story," Murray says of Everlast, his graphic
novel which spawned the short. "It came to me after
meeting a man who showed up on my doorstep in
Wilmington, NC. I really hope everyone enjoys it."
Growing up as an only child Lisa Goldstein said
she was sometimes bullied for being unique and what
elementary-aged kids considered 'different'. But as
the One Tree Hill actress recently shared with Team
True Beauty, she wouldn't ever change being herself
because it's all about being 'Loud and Proud' of who
you are and not keeping yourself in a box to please
others. During our interview Goldstein strongly
emphasized on the importance of everyone embracing
their differences and taking what makes them unique
and doing something great with it!
Goldstein also shares an important lesson on how we
can all pull out positives from our insecurities and
discusses what she believes true beauty really
The 25-year-old actor was joined at the showing by
Juno Temple, Tim McGraw, and Jeremy Dozier.
After the screening, the stars headed over to Jimmy
at the James Hotel for the party.
Cast members of Dirty Girl recently joined the “It
Gets Better” movement by making a video supporting
those who are bullied because of their sexual
identity, and letting the world know that it does
get better! |

WHAT NOT: TYLER HILTON INTERVIEW (PART 2)
via Music and What Not -- I had the chance to sit
down with singer-songwriter Tyler Hilton, before his
show at Eddie's Attic in Atlanta this past week, to
discuss his latest album in the works and his role
in this season's One Tree Hill. The concert was
absolutely incredible and even featured a
performance with One Tree Hill's, Michael May
How have your shows been lately? You have mostly
been doing "one-offs," correct?
Hilton: Yeah, I have been doing just "one-offs"
really. This show (Atlanta) is the only one this
weekend, but I have been doing shows every weekend
in September. I am trying to do most every weekend
this fall, because I'm recording the last season of
One Tree Hill in North Carolina. So I am just doing
things that I can fly/drive to really quick. | Continue reading...
Ostensibly, the show is about a couple (Connie
Britton and Dylan McDermott) who relocate to Los
Angeles with their teenage daughter to rebuild their
life after he cheats and she miscarries. But the
house they move into has mysterious ties to past
murders, something supernatural is going on in the
basement, a kleptomaniac neighbor (Jessica Lange,
gloriously chewing all the scenery she can find)
keeps walking in unannounced and the housekeeper
looks like a conservative matron in her 50s (Frances
Conroy) or a sexy strumpet in her 20s (Alexandra
Breckenridge) depending on who’s looking at her.
Throw in a mysterious burn victim (Denis O’Hare), an
emotionally disturbed therapy patient (Evan Peters)
and somebody walking around in head-to-toe latex,
and it’s easy to see how “Horror Story” defies
There are a few more familiar faces returning for
One Tree Hill‘s ninth, and final, season — plus a
few new ones! Warner Bros. has confirmed that, not
only will Barbara Alyn Woods reprise her role as
Nathan’s (James Lafferty) pill-popping cougar mom
Deb for one episode, but Richard Burgi will also
recur as Brooke’s (Sophia Bush)
Of course, these might not be the happiest family
reunions — and they certainly won’t come without
some drama. As Sophia teased during
HollywoodLife.com‘s recent trip to One Tree Hill’s
Wilmington, N.C., set:
“You’re going to meet someone who’s very relevant to
Brooke’s life who you’ve wanted to see for eight
This is obviously huge news for longtime fans of the
series, especially those with a soft spot for
Brooke… and her daddy issues. |
Allison Munn will turn up again as Lauren, Jamie’s
onetime teacher who has appeared on and off since
2009, and she’s bringing along an unlikely beau:
Quinn’s ex-hubby, David (played by Scott Holroyd).
But that’s not the strangest part: We’re hearing
that when they head back to town, Lauren will
actually be carrying his child! Guess Skills (Antwon
Tanner) is officially out of the picture…? |
