I loved life unexpected but I didn't like her role that much..I didn't like her on the secret circle either, let's hope it's the parts that were wrong for her, not her acting, nd that this show is actually good. Kind of a weird premise though. That being said, your grammar is all weird.. "a town that called" and "an waitress"? Don't you mean THAT'S called and A waitress??

Good thing for Britt! Can't wait to see her on TV again.

Wish the CW pulled their head out of their ass and renewed Life Unexpected for a 3rd season...

I think in the end, she was the ONLY really good part of the Secret Circle. While the rest of the show was going downhill fast, she was the rock that kept us interested.
