Pretty Little Liars Poll: Should Aria Accept Ezra's Proposal?

1 hour ago

Warning: The following post attempts to apply real-world logic to Pretty Little Liars.

As promised, last week’s episode delivered an “unexpected proposal,” with Ezra Fitz getting down on one knee and asking Aria Montgomery to spend the rest of her life with him. But because Pll is pulling its darkest move yet — making us wait until Aug. 2 for Aria’s answer — we figured we’d spend the off-week weighing the pros and cons of any potential decision.

The Late Late Show kicked off the week with an encore of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,” in which James Corden and Bad Mom guests Christina Applegate and Mila Kunis took turns answering very personal questions… or consuming unsavory food/drink.

And the stakes were only up-chucked upped by the fact that Applegate is a vegetarian, and some of the items were very much not. So just the idea of some of what’s placed before her has her looking green.

Sarah Silverman Mocks Republican Presidential Candidates, 'Bernie or Bust' Dems in DNC Speech

19 hours ago

Comedian Sarah Silverman admitted to “feeling the Bern” at the start of her 2016 Democratic National Convention speech, but dang, she doled out some burns to members of both parties by the time she’d finished.

The Masters of Sex star started with a zinger that very likely crossed party lines: “Citizens United — isn’t that such a beautiful name for something that means ‘Billionaires Buying Politicians’? ”

Eventually, though, Silverman eviscerated the jabs about penis size, sweat glands and other superficial concerns that plagued the Republican primary race eventually won by Donald Trump: “That stuff is for third graders. Come on! »

“An 8-year-old kid can teach a 4-year-old kid how to use a microwave oven,” the former Saturday Night Live star declared as “scientific” fact, while kiddingly telling attendees they should “ignore” their families and their jobs to hit the campaign trail on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
