Janel Parrish to Star in Mysteries of Laura


Pretty Little Liars has been great this half-season, but it has felt a bit lonely without Mona Vanderwaal’s constant quippage. Well, she may not be playing Mona, but Janel Parrish will be starring in an upcoming episode of The Mysteries of Laura. Could this be the Janel fix we’ve been waiting for?

According to E! Online, Janel will play Jillian Havenmeyer in the May 6th of the NBC show, entitled "The Mystery of the Crooked Clubber." Jillian is described as “gorgeous” and “poised,” hailing from the “cream of the Manhattan trust fund crop.” That designation comes with a stunning wardrobe and home, if you were wondering.

That all sounds great, right? Well, it all takes a turn when Janel’s high class character falls for a working class boy from Queens. (The horror!) It doesn’t end well. So how does this all work back to Laura, aka the protagonist of this show? Well, when murder and jewel thieves turn Jillian’s life upside down, Jillian gets stuck in Laura’s crosshairs. Yikes!

Um, we are so there. Janel could play a rock and she would charm the socks off of us. Plus, have we mentioned that we really miss Mona? We’re still pulling for a fake death scenario to be revealed in the Season 5 finale, but this show could really go in any direction. If Mona really isn’t coming back to PLL on a more recurring basis, then can someone please get Janel another show? Her Dancing With the Stars stint eased the pain for a while, but that's long over. Thanks in advance, TV gods!
