Nothing lifts my spirits better than a good Coca-Cola slurpee from 7-Eleven, so when I was invited to interview Ashley Benson as she kicked off Summer Slurpee Days with the inaugural sip of the season, I was so there. Pretty Little Liars gossip and my favorite frozen beverage? You don't have to ask me twice.

Ashley sipped the chain's new Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Sprite flavor while I enjoyed my Coke variety (what can I say, I'm loyal). Take a peek at our convo below!
OK!: What’s your earliest slurpee memory?
Ashley Benson: My dad goes to 7-Eleven for all of his coffee so I grew up going there and I would always get a slurpee. And then me and my friends get slurpees all the time during the summer because I get hot and sweaty really easily. Their new light flavor is half the calories, there’s no sugar—it’s great for summer.
OK!: Are you a purist or do you mix them up?
AB: I like to mix them up, but I do like the coke flavor and I like this new Lite Sprite flavor. It’s very hard to say. But that’s it—the soda flavors I love.

OK!: What can you tease about the upcoming season of PLL? I need to know who is in that trunk.
AB: It’s going to be pretty crazy. I’m excited for people to find out who’s in the trunk. I’m excited to see how fans like my storyline with my mom and I. We get into a lot of trouble this season. Caleb, my poor Tyler’s leaving me (for new ABC Family series Ravenswood), I’m really upset. There’s a lot that goes on. I think the biggest thing for me…I don’t care about any storyline, it’s just that my baby Tyler is leaving me. We have a crazy Halloween episode this year. It’s going to be amazing.
OK!: Would you like to do a crossover with Ravenswood?
AB: There have been a few conversations that have been brought up. I don’t know for sure if we’re going to but if they do I’d love to because I want to see my Tyler. OK! News: Jennifer Hudson Signs On To Judge 'American Idol' OK!: What advice would you give to the cast of Ravenswood? I'm expecting it to blow up like PLL. AB: I know it’s going to be big. They have such a great creative team behind that show. They’ve made our show what it is so I think it’s going to do really well. But just enjoy it! OK!: How do you feel about Mona joining forces with the girls this season?
AB: I find it so weird. It’s such a good storyline but it’s hard for Hanna. She’s done so much to Hanna and she has to befriend her and use her in a way to find out what’s going on but I’m just like, “Ugh! This sucks!” But it’s good, it’s good for the storyline. Watch: Tour Lulu Johnson's Fabulous Closet OK!: What do you have going on for the summer? AB: I get a week off for Fourth of July. I’m going to Europe. And then just working, hanging out with my friends on the weekends. I don’t really like to vacation. I’m surprised I’m actually going on vacation. I love to work. But I’m just going to go to Europe for a week. OK!: But Europe can keep you busy—so much to see. AB: And that’s the thing, I’m going with one of my friends who has lived all around the world—she’s lived in Rome, Paris, Switzerland, Germany—everywhere. So I’ll have something to do all the time, not just be like, “What to do? What to do?” Photos: 'Housewives' Fashion Looks You Need To See OK!: Is there any place you’re really psyched to see? AB: I’ve been to Paris. I’ve been to Rome. I’ve never been to Switzerland so I’m excited to go there. I’d love to travel everywhere but I just don’t have time. I went to Paris for four days in February and then I was I in Rome for 12 hours. So I’m going to Rome again because it’s beautiful there and Paris is amazing. OK!: As far as work this summer, is it just PLL keeping you busy or are there other projects in the works?
AB: Not that I can talk about at the moment but, yes, I have other things that are awesome but I’ll be able to say it when I can say it. But, yes, PLL is going to keep me busy.

Anyone who thought that Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story" franchise would really be kaput following "Toy Story 3" (a movie that practically crow-barred tears out of even the most hardened misanthrope) were, of course, out of their collective minds. Since the third film was released, we've had three dazzling theatrical short films ("Hawaiian Vacation," "Small Fry," and "Partysaurus Rex") and idle chatter of a fourth film. And come Halloween, we'll get something even more special – a 22-minute TV special called "Toy Story of Terror," the first image of which debuted today. Also, former Pixar director Brenda Chapman weighs in on the controversy surrounding her "Brave" character Merida becoming an official Disney Princess. The first image from the special – featuring Woody (Tom Hanks) and Jessie (Joan Cusack) huddled around a ominously glow-in-the-dark Buzz (Tim Allen) – is appropriately atmospheric, and along with the image, some details have emerged about the special's tone and plot.

When you think of Heidi Klum, you instantly think of her insanely shiny, gorgeous, blonde hair—or at least I do. Sure, she's got a killer bod, a contagious charm, and a wardrobe that any woman would envy, but really she's also got some of the best locks in Hollywood, which is why I had to grill her on all things beauty in our recent interview, read on for her secrets! OK!: Clear Hair Care held a “Right End” Hair Revolution event in LA recently, encouraging women to pay more attention to their scalp—why did you decide to partner with this brand? Heidi Klum: I tried the products before I joined and I think they're great because they do what they promise— make your hair stronger and more beautiful. They nourish the scalp and I think that’s what is so important because all the other brands forget about that. Everyone always thinks about brittle split ends and once they are split, the only thing you can do is cut them, no matter what product you use. I think you can help that by feeding your hair through the scalp and Clear does that. News: First Look at Heidi Klum and Mel B as Judges on 'America's Got Talent' OK!: What's your favorite product in the line? HK: The 7 Day Intensive Treatment. I use it twice a month and it makes my hair softer and silkier. OK!: Clear did a recent study that says 99% of the hair’s natural strength and beauty comes from the scalp, where else do you think your strength and beauty comes from? HK: From eating right. You are what you eat and that's so important; you have to eat right. OK!: You've worn a lot of different hairstyles in your career, which trends do you consider the most timeless? HK: I've cut my bangs and grown them out so many times—I do love them—but for me, I like my hair long. I feel more feminine with longer hair. Maybe it’s the girly girl in me, but I like to play with my hair and I can also do more things with it when it's long. Last week I made it really curly, and I love it dead straight or slicked back tight in a bun. It also depends on what I’m wearing. OK!: Has there ever been one trend that you loved on others, but didn't like on yourself? HK: I do love those cute little braids that people have, but they just don't look good on me. I think, yes, my name is Heidi and I should be on a dirt road in braids, in the mountains, but it looks wrong. OK!: What's your get-ready routine? HK: Most of the time, I wash my hair and condition it, grab a big pair of sunglasses and run out of the house. If I have a meeting, then I would put on a little bit of base, blush, mascara, and a lip gloss. OK!: I want to talk to you about America’s Got Talent. How has it been working with Mel B? HK: I love Mel, Howie, and Howard. They are a lot of fun and we make each other laugh all day. Everyone is always on time, which I also love. It’s not really about us though. It’s about whoever is the act that is on the stage, but we are having a really good time. News: What's New in Celebrity Fragrances OK!: What was the transition like for you? To go from hosting to judging? HK: It's definitely different than anything I’ve ever done before, but I do enjoy it. I love looking at amazing, goofy acts all day and judging them. I feel like I have good taste. I've seen a lot of things in the 20 years I've been traveling around the world, from any music act to every cirque de le show, to everything that you can watch in Vegas. You name it, I’ve seen it. I get bored quite fast, so if there's an act on stage and it’s boring, it’s getting an X quick. OK!: Do you watch any other reality shows? HK: I don’t watch a lot of television, but I do like Wipeout. I watch that with my kids, they love it. OK!: Speaking of your kids, Mother’s Day is coming up—what’s the best present you’ve ever received? HK: My kids made these painted clay pots for me that had a flower planted inside. I thought they were really cute because they lasted. OK!: How will you be spending the holiday this year? HK: We will probably be home barbecuing or something like that. We have a beautiful garden, so we will probably just do that. Eat a lot and hang out. OK!: And we have to talk about your famous Halloween party. Are you doing it again this year? HK: Of course! I already know what I’m going to wear; I’m all prepared. What do you love most about Heidi Klum? Are you excited to see her on America's Got Talent?

One day after tiny pageant sensation Alana Thompson’s parents actually tied the knot, TLC has announced that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will be back for a second season this summer. The hit redneck reality series returns July 17 at 9 PM for another cycle. “This summer, get ready to watch the family take part in hijinks like butter rolling, tap dancing lessons and wrestling events,” said TLC in a statement this morning. On Sunday, June “Mama Bear” Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson got married in a ceremony where guests were encouraged to attend in full redneck attire but not allowed to bring cameras, according to the invite. The couple’s three daughters, including 7-year old Alana, were in attendance. The wedding will be part of the new season. The initial 10 episodes of Season 1 of the Authentic Entertainment-produced unscripted series proved a big hit for TLC, averaging 2.4 million viewers. Halloween and Thanksgiving specials in January plus a clip show and Christmas special in February also delivered strong numbers.
EXCLUSIVE: Voltage has set Uli Edel to helm Pay The Ghost, an elevated supernatural thriller that is based on a short story by cult horror and dark fantasy novelist Tim Lebbon. Voltage will sell the picture at Cannes and should have cast in place by the time the fest gets underway. In the Dan Kay-scripted thriller, a young boy disappears from his father’s side during a Halloween parade. His parents are haunted by terrifying images, and they learn that on Halloween, a vengeful ghost surfaces, abducting children. They also learn there is a short window to recover the child before he’s lost forever to the spirit world. Kay, who wrote Timber Falls, developed the script with producer Ian Levy and then Voltage got behind it, with Craig Flores and Nicolas Chartier also producing. They enlisted Edel, who helmed The Baader Meinhof Complex and just directed the six-hour miniseries Hotel Adlon, which was the highest rated TV show ever in Germany. Production on Pay The Ghost begins this summer.
The event will include celebrity appearances and musical performances, along with a nationwide costume competition.read more
