Shay Mitchell Reveals What She Misses Most About 'Pretty Little Liars' (Exclusive)

It's officially been one year since Pretty Little Liars has come to an end — and just like us, Shay Mitchell still misses a few things from her time on the Freeform series. As Emily Fields, Shay was one of the show's titular four friends who join forces against an anonymous enemy known as just "A" following the disappearance of their friend Allison. Today, she yearns for Rosewood and her on-screen BFFs. "The cast and the crew and the craft service — let's be honest that was a huge part of it," she joked to Life & Style exclusively before getting serious. "Being in New York with those girls, yeah I miss the family that we created. When you're with people for seven years, I saw them way more than I saw my own family, so just getting to hear how their kids are doing and seeing people's kids from zero to seven,

What Happened to Abigail on Days Of Our Lives?

Abigail has had quite a life on Days Of Our Lives, developing dissociative identity disorder and even escaping death. But now that she seems to be back in her right mind, what does the future hold for her? Will she go to jail or a mental hospital? Or is there still some way to keep Abigail in Salem? The daughter of Jack Deveraux and Jennifer Horton, Abigail was born in 1992 and played by a series of child actors including Jillian Claire, who portrayed the girl from 2003-04. In October of 2004, the character was aged into a teenager and Ashley Benson stepped into the role. She stayed for three years, departing in 2007. In March of 2011, Kate Mansi joined Days as the newest Abigail, and she made her last appearance in June of 2016.

Days of Our Lives” heroine Abigail Deveraux is having an identity crisis in more ways than one. The character is currently involved in a storyline in which she suffers from dissociative identity disorder, the same affliction that helped Erika Slezak win six Emmys for her multiple personalities on “One Life to Live.” But there’s another Abby swap happening behind the scenes: as reported by Daytime Confidential, Marci Miller is exiting the role, and the character’s former portrayer Kate Mansi is coming back in.

The role of Abby has been played by multiple actors since she was born on the show in 1992. In 2004 the character was rapidly aged into adolescence and played by Ashley Benson until 2007. But Mansi’s portrayal of Abby left arguably the biggest impression on audiences. She joined the show in 2011 and stayed until 2016, and for her farewell season on the soap she was awarded a

Star Sightings: Stephen Colbert Talks Louis C.K. With Samantha Bee, Gwen Stefani Performs in Dubai & More!

Though Louis C.K.'s transgressions were widely considered the worst kept secret in the comedy world, to some, it really was a secret.

Stephen Colbert welcomed Samantha Bee to the stage at Njpac in Newark, New Jersey, on Dec. 6, where she was the special guest on Sad! A Happy Evening with Stephen Colbert & Samantha Bee, a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival.

During their hour-and-a-half-long chat, the longtime friends talked everything from dealing with politics (specifically President Donald Trump's tumultuous first-year in office) during their late night monologues -- Colbert hosts The Late Show on CBS while Bee is the face of Full Frontal on TBS -- as well as the seismic shift in culture surrounding sexual harassment since the Harvey Weinstein allegations came to light.

Colbert was supposed to have C.K. on his show the week the New York Times published its report on his sexual misconduct, and the 53-year-old comedian was planning on using an
