Sally Pressman Gets Married!

Posted By LifetimeLisaR 5:16pm GMT

When filming begins on "Army Wives" Season 6, Sally Pressman might just be returning with a new last name! The actress, who plays Mrs. Trevor LeBlanc on the show, got hitched to fellow actor David Rogers this Saturday in a sweet ceremony at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, CA.

Sally and David met in acting class five years ago and got engaged in October. David popped the question — with the sparkler Sally's showing off above — at one of his sweetie's go-to spots, the Tracy Anderson studio where Sally works out! If David looks familiar, it's probably because you've seen him on various shows like "CSI," "Brothers & Sisters" and "Cougar Town." He also starred on the Lifetime movie "The Pregnancy Pact."

Although we all want "Army Wives" to hurry up and get back on our TV screens already, the time off in between Seasons 5 and 6 were perfect for Sally, who was able to plan her wedding and keep fans up-to-date on the festivities via Twitter. After the big day, "Army Wives" actor Brian McNamara Tweeted: "Watched Sally Pressman and David Rogers get married yesterday!!! Two wonderful people with so much love for each other!! I cried!! I know..." Who knew General Holden could be such a softy?

Leave your well (wedding!) wishes for Sally and David below!

Sally Pressman Prepares For Her Wedding!

Posted By LifetimeLisaR 10:38am GMT

As much as I'd love to share some Season 6 gossip with you all... I don't have any! Yet! But while we may have to wait just a little bit longer for scoop on Fort Marshall's fate, I can keep you updated on the going-on's of the "Army Wives" cast!

Although Season 5's wedding bells rang for this "Army Wives" actress's on-screen BFF, off-screen it's Sally Pressman's time to walk down the aisle. The star chatted with us about her wedding planning from the set of Season 5, and now her nuptials are just around the corner. From showers to dress fittings, we've been following Sally's wedding prep on Twitter, and now you can go behind the scenes of her exciting journey. Check out a video of Sally and celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson as the star talks about (and shows!) how she's getting in shape for the big day.

So this is how Roxy stays so fab and fit? Huge congratulations to Sally Pressman and her lucky soon-to-be-hubby!

Posted By LifetimeLisaR 1:01pm GMT

Here at "Army Wives," we love finding new and unique ways to give back to our troops. We’ve worked with AutoTrader.com to help a military hero get a new car and even Dr. Jill Biden has stopped by during Season 4 to speak to the cast (and real-life Army wives!) about her continued mission to bring support to people in the military and their families.

Now, you can do something sweet for our troops and make a new BFF (or BAFF, Best Armed Forces Friend!). When you buy a bracelet on BFF.tv, the company sends a matching bracelet to a member of the armed forces or someone in their family. After you both receive your matching bracelets, you can hop online and connect through BFF.tv’s online community. Plus, your purchase helps fund charities that support military families through the American Freedom Foundation!

This "ultimate friendship bracelet" has already made its way to the wrists of celebs like America Ferrera, Christie Brinkley, Demi Lovato, Giuliana Rancic and Jordin Sparks. Get yours at BFF.tv today and then come back to the "Army Wives" Blog to tell us about you and your new BFF!

Where to Buy: Molly's Lace Beanie

Posted By LifetimeLisaR 12:43pm GMT

Sometimes we can stump you with “Guess The Dress,” but when it comes to the chicest in infant head wear, there’s only one baby that beanie can belong to: the newest little lady on the “Army Wives” block, Miss Molly Sherwood.

Today on the “Army Wives” Twitter, we spotted a sweet Tweet from the company that designed one of Molly’s beanies and wanted to share the shopping info for all of the Army Mamas out there! In Season 5, Episode 10, Molly wore one of Beanie Designs’ Organic Cream Lacy Beanies (pictured at left) and we must say, she looks quite cute!

Jeremy Davidson on the Freidrich's Ataxia Research Alliance

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:23pm GMT

"Army Wives" actor Jeremy Davidson (Chase Moran) and his fellow cast members share their passion for educating others on Freidrich's Ataxia (a rare neuromuscular disease) and the ongoing work of the Freidrich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).

Read a personal note from Jeremy to the "Army Wives" fans below:

Dear "Army Wives" supporters,

I met sisters Sam and Alex Bode when my wife Mary Stuart Masterson was directing a film called "The Cake Eaters." That film is centered on a girl, beautifully played by Kristen Stewart, who is battling Friedreich's Ataxia. Sam, Alex and their amazing mother Mary Caruso helped Mary Stuart and Kristen in their research by sharing the very intimate struggles they have faced since they were diagnosed as children. We have remained close ever since.

As a new father, I can only hope that I would have half the strength Mary and thousands of other FARA parents have had to find in order to raise their children to be positive, outspoken, and productive members of society. The people at FARA have been a huge inspiration to our family. And I'm extremely proud that everyone in the "Army Wives" family was so giving of their time and energy to make this video a reality. (A particular shout out goes to Drew Fuller.)

-Jeremy

Catherine Bell Talks "Army Wives" Season 5 Finale & "Last Man Standing"

Posted By LifetimeLisaR 5:10pm GMT

We all love her as sweet Denise Sherwood in “Army Wives,” but in her upcoming movie, “Last Man Standing,” premiering June 6 at 9/8c on Lifetime, Catherine Bell plays a woman concealing a dark past as a military-trained special-ops agent. We chatted with Catherine about going from “Army Wives” to action, doing serious stunts in her new flick and saying goodbye to her son Jeremy during Season 5 in the interview below!

What is it like going from playing an Army wife to playing an actual, former Marine — in "Last Man Standing"?
I love it! To me, in acting the most fun thing is mixing it up — going from playing a wife who started off being abused by her son and going through all of this emotional stuff, and then just going into full-on action mode and Special Ops, secret-agent stuff. Maybe next time I’ll get to do some sort of period piece or something completely different from all those things, you know?

What do you think Denise Sherwood and Abby, your character in “Last Man Standing,” would have to talk about if Abby were to hang out with the “Army Wives” crew?
(laughs) I think she’d probably have a lot to say! She obviously knows a lot about the military. More than anything, she’s a mom, she’s a wife, she’s a strong woman, and those are all things that seem to be very central to an Army or military spouse as well, so she might fit right in.

You do stunts in the movie “Last Man Standing,” and we know that Terry Serpico, who plays your husband Frank Sherwood on “Army Wives,” has a stunt background — did he give you any pointers?
That’s right, he does! No, he didn’t give me any pointers, but we did talk about it a little bit. He’s a real stuntman; I obviously had a stunt girl for some of the more dangerous things. I got to do a lot of it, but anytime there’s any risk involved, they let a professional do that sort of thing. My stunt girl was amazing. I don’t want to give anything away, but there was a cable rig that was attached to her chest that pulls her back and she gets knocked back. She actually flew back and hit her head on the concrete. If it was me, I would have been definitely down for the count, but she was amazing! She took a couple of minutes, shook it off, got up and was like, “Let’s do it again!”

What can we expect from the “Army Wives” finale? Is there a cliffhanger? What can you tell us without giving too much away?
That’s always a challenge! Well, every character is obviously going through so many things, you know … Roxy is running into her challenges with opening up her truck stop, and Denise and Tanya, Jeremy’s fiance, are getting closer and helping each other through the loss of Jeremy. But I think the big thing is that there’s huge, unexpected news that we all get as a group that — of course I can’t give away — but it really forces us all to take a look at where we’re going next in our lives and what’s the next step for each of us. Really, it’s a big shocker, and I guess it is a bit of a cliffhanger in that sense.

Have you seen scripts for next season yet?
Not yet! I think all of the writers — as they should be — are on vacation at the moment!

This past season of “Army Wives” was huge for Denise because she lost her son, Jeremy. How has it been filming without Bubba on set?
Oh man! I think one of the hardest things about filming those episodes was knowing that Bubba — Richard, we call him Bubba — was going away. I adore that man — I call him a man because he’s actually, like, 25, even though he plays 19. But yeah, such a sweetheart! He’s almost like a kid to me, like a real kid, he’s just a good, good person. He’s a Charleston boy, born and raised in Charleston! So we still see him and hang out. He takes my daughter Gemma fishing.

But man, we miss him! That final scene, the one with him in the coffin (watch the video above) — brutal! So hard to shoot, and we were all sobbing because we were saying goodbye to him and the character.

Read the rest of the interview with Catherine Bell here and tune in to "Last Man Standing" Monday, June 6 at 8/7c on Lifetime! Catherine Bell will be on Twitter (@reallycb) talking with fans for the first hour of the movie, starting at 8 pm et. And don't forget — there are still two more episodes left in "Army Wives" Season 5. Catch Episode 12 this Sunday night at 9/8c and flip through photos here.
