Speaking of Vanessa Marano, I just read that she will be taking over the part of Eden Baldwin on The Young and the Restless starting December 3rd. Erin Sanders, who is playing the part right now will continue playing the part until November 19th. You can read more here http://www.gilmoregirlsnews.com/
I do remember reading a while back that Vanessa was in the movie The Clique but totally forgot about her being in it even though I have been seeing the ads for it during Gilmore Girls. Don't know if I will be checking it out or not.
I agree with you, it wasn't April's fault at all and I don't really blame Anna either, although keeping it from Luke was totally wrong. I put the whole blame on Luke. He never should have kept it a secret from Lorelai. As soon as he found out, he should have talked to her about it. If any one would have understood, it would have been Lorelai and he should have known it. Then he made it worse by not including Lorelai into this new world of his with April and then he started shutting Lorelai out of his life as well. It was totally Luke's fault that they ended up breaking up.
