Shailene Woodley Spills on ‘Secret Life’ and George Clooney

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

hollywoodnews.com: First it was 15-year-old Amy Jeurgens (Shailene Woodley) getting pregnant by cool but troubled guy Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) in a rash moment at band camp two seasons ago. Now it appears that when ABC Family’s “The Secret Life of The American Teenager” returns for its third season Monday (6/7), it’ll be bad girl Adrian (Francia Raisa) facing a very unplanned baby-on-the-way.

Will this season be a case of déjà vu all over again? We asked show star Shailene. “There are a lot of differences, but there’s always going to be the similarity between the shock of being a teenager who is pregnant and having to choose what to do, to give up the baby or keep it,” she notes. “Amy was obviously more naïve than Adrian. Adrian is accepting it quicker, but it’s still a struggle. Adrian and Amy will kind of create a bond…. Amy is always going to be there for Adrian.”

Shailene points out, however, that there remains a huge issue standing in the way of their becoming BFFs. The sticky point, as “Secret Life” viewers know all too well, is that sadly, the father of Adrian’s baby is none other than Amy’s true love, Ben (Kenny Baumann), while Adrian is in love with Ricky, a.k.a. Amy’s baby daddy.

It shouldn’t be a big surprise that there is another pregnancy on “Secret Life” considering the show’s obsession with sex – the act itself, and the constant talk of sex, including one installment where the S word was reported as being dropped a whopping 70 times. A drinking game in which viewers tipple at every mention of sex grew in popularity across the land last season.

“As long as they’re doing it in a way that’s safe, I think it’s funny,” says Shailene.

America’s most famous unwed teenage mother, Bristol Palin, guests on the show this season. “We worked together a few months ago. It was a one-time thing. She was nice. She seemed like a normal teenager,” Shailene reports.
