Karmy fans, brace yourselves — Amy WILL fall in love with someone new on the second season of ‘Faking It.’ Oh, and don’t forget, Fifth Harmony makes an epic cameo performance!
On the Oct. 28 episode of Faking It, fans are treated to a super fun performance from all-girl group Fifth Harmony. When HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to Rita Volk and Michael J. Willett, they told us that both Amy and Shane have new love interests on the way. Will they meet at the Fifth Harmony concert? Double date alert!
‘Faking It’ — Amy Getting A New Girlfriend, Moving On From Karma
If you ship Karmy, you might want to stop reading this interview right now. (Just kidding, keep reading anyway!)
Rita and Michael, who play Amy and Shane, stopped by the HollywoodLife.com studio in New York City to discuss some of the exciting things coming up on season 2 of Faking It. The one thing that I found the most interesting? Amy has a brand-new girlfriend on the way.
I asked Rita straight-out whether or not we’ll ever her see her do more than briefly flirt with a girl other than Karma on the show, and she told us that Amy will have a “stable” new love interest by the end of the season.
Unfortunately, she wouldn’t elaborate on who, or if it’s someone Amy has already encountered (ahem, the girl in the fridge at Liam’s house), but this is still some very exciting news!
Even better? Amy is not the only one who has a new beau on the way. In fact, Michael told me that Shane would be meeting his new love interest during the Oct. 21 episode. As you loyal fans know, Shane had a sexy encounter with an even sexier, but closeted, MMA instructor at the end of that episode.
Hmm, does this mean Shane is going to get the MMA instructor to fall head-over-heels in love with him and finally come out? We’ll just have to wait and see!
Karma Will Find Out About Amy & Liam, But Not From Shane
Another juicy topic I was able to discuss with Rita and Michael is whether or not Amy and Liam’s dirty little secret will be forced into the light.
On the Oct. 14 episode Shane openly tells Amy he is not good at keeping secrets, and it seemed like foreshadowing. However, both Michael and Amy explained to me that Shane will not be the blabber mouth in this situation.
“He realizes the stakes, he realizes how big the secret is. Usually, he’s the one to open his mouth and blab but he realizes the gravity and that it would be really bad for everybody,” Rita explained.
Rita also shared that it’s “inevitable” for Karma to find out about Amy and Liam, and that when it happens “it’s NOT going to be pretty.” Yikes!
Don’t forget to tune in for an all-new episode of Faking It on Tuesday, Oct. 28, in which Fifth Harmony performs and Karma and Liam’s real “first date” doesn’t go quite as they hoped it would.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — What do YOU think about Amy getting a new girlfriend? Do you think Shane’s MMA hook up is going to turn into something more serious? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
