“Nine Lives of Chloe King” premieres Tuesday night on ABC Family, and one of its stars, Amy Pietz, has done plenty of press about how much she loves her new gig. In fact, she says that playing mom to 16-year-old Chloe eased her transition when she recently became stepmother to a 16-year-old.
There’s another reason why she loves working on “Chloe King” so much… her co-stars are plenty of fun to work with. “I spot stars a mile away and stay away from projects that have horrible people involved. I just can’t physically do it,” she tells NY Post’s PopWrap. “I have no censor button and I’m rebellious by nature.”

some of that is helped by us having a little bit of a life outside. But
I’m here an average of 50 hours a week, so there isn’t a lot of
socializing for any of us.”
Patterson was most recently seen in “The Event” and as Liam’s shady dad on “90210.”
We’ll just be over here, pretending that Stars Hollow is real and that Luke and Lorelai have 1.5 kids and a bunch of little puppy Paul Ankas by now. And he makes her Santa burgers every year. And Rory visits all the time. And April Nardini was eaten by a shark and nobody missed her.
