It’s time for a wedding on Chasing Life!
August 10th, 2015 under Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell. [ Comments: none ]

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Leo Hendrie and April Carver tonight at 9p at ABC Family. After a brief engagement, their wedding day is finally here on Chasing Life.
Cancer patients, April and Leo know they have to grab life balls. When you know the person is right for you, why waste time, just get married. That is what tonight’s episode is all about. The couple who have been told at different times that their life has an expiration date, want to make their love eternal. They are looking forward to walking down the aisle and becoming Mr & Mrs. They are putting all of their set backs behind them, and they are moving forward by making their special day even more special.
As April is walking down the aisle to her husband to be, she collapses. Will she make it down to Leo? Is the wedding over just as it was beginning? They know for them the expression, til death they do part, can come a lot sooner for them than most couples. Is it coming tonight?
You will just have to watch to find out. All I will tell you, is get the tissue boxes ready because there will be tears. I am not telling you if they are happy ones or sad ones, but I will say be prepared for the waterworks.
If I could marry Chasing Life, I would. Tonight’s episode is just another reason why on a long list of reasons why I love this show until cancellation we do part. Which better not be for a long time ABC Family!

Before Scott Michael Foster had cancer on Chasing Life, he had a problem with pot on The Game. How cute was the 22 year old in that 2007 episode?


Scott Michael Foster is Chasing Poop!

Scott Michael Foster posted a photo of himself squatting with his shorts down next to a sign and said, “Well, I wasn’t grading or stockpiling…” Hopefully the Chasing Life wasn’t full of oil or he will be pooping a lot of blood. OK, that was a bad reference to his new show on ABC.
Hopefully, we all be able to get rid of this image before we watch him on the ABC Family drama tonight at 9p.

Before Haley Ramm was dealing with having a sister who has cancer on Chasing Life, her parents were murdered on CSI: Miami. How cute was the 13 year old in that 2005 episode?


How does Haley Ramm feel about playing bisexual on Chasing Life?

Tonight at 9p on ABC Family’s Chasing Life, Brenna finally gets her own episode and Haley Ramm talked to me about it and her character.
Brenna is a teenager in high school and life is hard enough for her. She has the perfect older sister, who has been diagnosed with cancer, and now she has to compete for attention against that and her sister. Everything has always been April, April, April, but tonight it is all about Brenna.
Since April has been diagnosed with cancer, Brenna has realized that she is bisexual. Her first relationship with another girl didn’t work out because of the other girl’s parents. Now she is single in her private school and things are finally working out for her. That is until last week when her mom told her that April’s medicals bills are piling up and Brenna is going to have to go to public school. Brenna has had enough and tonight she is going to have her say. Ramm describes tonight’s episode as, “It is all about how Brenna has been feeling. How this has affected her. What she is upset about.” Then she added, “She says that she is kind of always living in April’s shadow. She touches on what it has been like to grow up with a sister who is so perfect, most of the time, and Brenna tends to fall behind. She is more of a struggler. She is coming into her own. She just takes a little more time.”
Coming into her own means that Brenna will be dating. Will she be dating a boy or a girl? She said, “Both. I mean, she likes both.”
When she signed on for the role, she didn’t know about Brenna’s sexuality. When did she find out that her character would be bisexual? Right around when they were filming the third episode, she had a meeting with the producers and the writers and they told her the news then. How did she react? She smiled as she shared with me, “I was so thrilled. I think that it makes so much sense for Brenna. She is different. She is kind of the black sheep in the family.” Plus, she says, “I am so excited, to kind of, be that voice on the show for people who watch. It just makes my heart so happy.”
It is also makes her happy when she logs on to Twitter and people are responding to her character. She has followers tell her that they would not have asked out someone of the same sex had it not been for Brenna. In one episode last season, Brenna was bullied and she told people about it. A young boy watched that episode with his mom and then he admitted to her he was bullied. The mom contacted Ramm and thanked for her for giving her son the strength to speak up. When I asked her about being a role model, she humbly responded with, “We are all just playing people who are trying to do their best.”
Something that comes easy to her, because as she explained, “Playing a character where it is so accepted and normal. It was never explained, I think she just said it. She said it again and again and again. It is making it normal, which is should be.”
How does she want things to turn out for Brenna? She says, “I want Brenna to find happiness and peace.” Expanding on that thought, “Just to continue being comfortable in her own skin. I think she will find herself in a very happy relationship.”
Before she gets to that point, she has to deal with leaving her private school and starting a new public school. All of this while dealing with being bisexual in high school, her older sister having cancer and getting to her know her older half-sister she didn’t know about until recently. You thought your teen years were hard? See how much harder they are for Brenna tonight and every Monday at 9p on ABC Family on Chasing Life.
