Troian Bellisario steps out for The Creative Coalition’s The Perception Reception held at Hotel Monaco on Monday (July 25) in Philadelphia, Penn.
The Pretty Little Liars star was joined by Glee alum Kevin McHale before they headed to the 2016 Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center.
“I so often feel ashamed of my country’s past, the injustices (and prejudices) woven into the fabric of our country, the pain we inflict on our citizens everyday, the hunger we ignore, the separation we base our class system upon, the constant drive to ‘get what’s mine’ instead of ‘share what is ours’ the fear of our future, the environment ruin we are hurtling towards and then I hear someone like senator Cory Booker speak,” Troian wrote on Instagram. “And I suddenly for the first time in a long time feel hope. And feel proud to be an American. #wewillrise #dnc #creativecoalition”
“#tbt 7 years ago.. It’s unbelievable how quickly time can go by.. To think we aired 7 years ago today..” Lea captioned the picture on Instagram. “Found this photo from our Upfronts trip to NYC just days before the premiere. We were all so excited. We went around the table and each said something we loved about each other.. No matter where we all are now.. I will always think back to this night. #glee ??.”
Kevin McHale is opening up in a candid new interview on why he thinks Glee lost its viewers and why there shouldn’t be a spinoff series.
“I will say, not to bring it down or anything, when Cory Monteith died. I don’t think the show ever came back from that,” the 26-year-old actor told The Huffington Post. “It wasn’t for a lack of trying, but the story was going in one direction with his character [Finn Hudson] and he was one of two main characters of the show.”
“I think after that the vibe on set was different,” he added. “It was just weird for us being there never mind actually having to be filming. Being one of the writers in that sort of situation — I wouldn’t have known what I would have done because I was like, ‘I don’t really even want to be here.’”
When asked if he thinks Artie should get a spinoff, Kevin said, “Towards the end, there weren’t that many people watching Glee. So I don’t know how many people would then watch a spinoff. We’re off the air for a reason.”

The 25-year-old former NLT member wrote the track with his former bandmates Kevin McHale (yes, from Glee fame) and Chris Moy, both of whom joined him for the worldwide radio premiere earlier this week. Check out the pic below!
“Writing ‘Heartless’ was a great experience because I got to write with two of my best friends about a moment that I not only had to live through but was lucky enough to have them by my side the entire time,” Justin said.
The song appears on his new EP Faces, which you can get now on iTunes!
