The Hollywood Reporter decided to investigate how many times the word “sex” is used on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. And it’s hilarious!

Last night’s Pretty Little Liars was filled with so many secrets that it came as a total surprise when Ezra decided to stand before Aria’s parents and confess that he was in love with their daughter. Their teenage daughter.

Immediately, I was uncomfortable. Aria walked up to her 20-something beau and held his hand before launching into a speech about how this is “so real” and she’s still “wrapping [her] head around it.” Ezra explained that this happened long before she was “[his] student.” And Ezra and Aria are shocked and appalled when her parents become outraged and ask Ezra to leave their home.

If that’s not disturbing enough, apparently 8 out of 10 girls believe that shows like The Hills and Jersey Shore are “true to life.”

[Spoiler Alert] Not only did Kaylie fight treatment at every stage — refusing to partake in group therapy and admitting something’s wrong — but she also found a friend in her roommate at the treatment center: an anorexic teen model ready to fake recovery for the fourth time rather than getting better! Oh and she’s showing Kaylie how to do the same! Continue reading
