Did you know anyone in the show before it started?
I knew a couple of people that I had met on the island beforehand. I had spent some summers there so I knew Jackie, Gabby, and Lou beforehand.
Are you guys all still close now that you guys are done taping?
Oh yeah! We have a group text that we're all always texting, sending pictures, and saying things like, "Oh my god, did you see this article?" So yes, we stay in touch and everyone is great.
About THE VINEYARD
ABC Family's newest original docu-series, "The Vineyard," premieres Tuesday, July 23rd, at 10:00 - 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. Set against the idyllic backdrop of Martha's Vineyard, MA, and featuring the island's iconic Black Dog Tavern, the series follows a mix of locals and "wash-a-shores" working and playing together for the summer. Rounding out the cast is a Latin pop princess, a hopeless romantic, an aspiring writer and a pre-med player, just to name a few. As summer on the island gets underway, several people are at significant crossroads in their personal lives as they juggle new and old romances, friendships, rivalries and career choices. "The Vineyard" is created and executive-produced by Dave Broome ("Biggest Loser") and Brian Smith ("Masterchef").
