Chicago Med’s Torrey DeVitto Shares She Had an Abortion at 21: ‘I Was Able to Make That Choice’
The actress shares her experience publicly for the first time in light of the leaked Roe opinion, “to help be a part of normalizing this”
In 2005, Torrey DeVitto was 21 and had just booked her first big acting job. She was finally making acting her career and starting to earn some money, when she found out she was pregnant.
“I remember I was sitting in my bedroom and I was with my boyfriend at the time and we were both pretty dumbfounded. We were shocked,” DeVitto, 37, tells PEOPLE. “I think the two of us just didn’t know what to do and I remember feeling like really dizzy. I was in this surreal moment and I was like how did this happen? What do I do?”
The Chicago Med alum knew that she, nor her then-boyfriend, were in a place where they could raise and support a child.
“I just started making money but with taxes and agent fees and manager fees, you don’t really take home that much, and I didn’t have the funds to do this,” she says. “I was living in a house in Los Angeles with three other roommates and very scared, very confused, and so I made the decision that was best for me. And he made that decision as well.”
“It was the healthiest, smartest choice for us at the time and I’m so grateful that I was able to make that choice about me, about my own body,” she continues. “I can’t imagine if the right to choose over my own body was illegal. It’s just something that’s so unfathomable.”
DeVitto says she was “lucky” to have the support of her family, and decided to fly to where her mom was living in Michigan for an abortion. After recuperating, she went back to Los Angeles and “jumped right back into work.”

While she told close friends and family about her abortion, DeVitto otherwise kept it under wraps, due to the stigma. That fear, she says, made it harder to reconcile.
“I wanted to be open, but I was scared that I would be alienated or judged,” she says. “I just went right back to filming and never really processed it because I think it felt so taboo. I didn’t give myself the grace or the self-love to really process it.”
In the 15 years since, DeVitto has fully processed her decision and “reclaimed” it.
“Now that I’m older and more aware of the world and don’t really give a s— what people think anymore, especially the opposite sex trying to control my rights, I’ve really taken ownership and feel like this is my story,” she says. “And if you don’t like it, you can see yourself out the door, because it just doesn’t matter to me anymore. I know in my heart of hearts, I made the best decision.”
DeVitto now talks about her abortion “very freely” with people, but hadn’t shared it publicly until now. She decided it was time after a draft opinion leaked last week indicated that the Supreme Court will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and the right to abortion.
“I was incensed when I saw the leak come out and I actually was really, really emotional about it,” she says. “I kind of always brushed [my experience] to the back of my head, but I started reliving my story and how different my life would be now. How angry and emotional I would’ve felt had I not been able to have the right to choose over my own body.”

By sharing her story, DeVitto hopes to “help be a part of normalizing” abortions and “normalizing doing what’s best for you.”
“I hope it makes another girl or woman who’s gone through this feel like they don’t have to be ashamed of the choices they’ve made,” she says, starting to tear up. “It makes me emotional saying that because for so long, I felt so ashamed because of the stigma that people put on abortions. I just hope that any other woman reading this knows that she does not need to be ashamed for making what choice she felt was best for her body.”

Partnering with GLAAD, Kat Graham announces new album, LONG HOT SUMMER, out June 3rd, with a global PRIDE Tour to follow.

With sweeping pop synths over aggressive 80’s beats and co-produced with Jean-Yves “Jeeve” Ducornet, Kat is ready to give the community that first embraced her a dance-pop album focusing on liberation, self-exploration, and acceptance.
“Going back to dance pop has always been an era that I started but never finished,” says Kat. “Especially in partnership with GLAAD, I am beyond excited to celebrate the LGBTQ Community and bring awareness to this incredible organization. We are going to bring the house down!”

Paul zal te zien zijn in de nieuwe Netfix serie ‘Confessions’, naast dat hij erin te zien zal zijn zal hij ook een executive producer zijn. Daarnaast is ook Julie Plec betrokken bij het proejct met haar productiebedrijf My So-Called Company. Het is nog niet bekend wanneer de serie te zien zal zijn aangezien ze pas in de beginfase zitten van ontwikkeling. De drama serie is gebasserd op het gepubliceerd artikel The Confessions of a Drug-Addicted High School Teacher uit 2015.
Netflix has taken in for development Confessions (working title), a drama series starring and executive produced by The Vampire Diaries alum Paul Wesley, I have learned. Written and executive produced by TVD co-developer, executive and showrunner Julie Plec and Bradley Paul (Better Call Saul), the project, which is in early stages, is based on Jason Smith’s non-fiction 2015 article My So-Called Compan
Confessions, produced by Universal Television, stems from the production partnership Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment forged with Wesley and his company Citizen Media in 2019, following Wesley’s starring turn on Kapital’s CBS All Access series Tell Me a Story (created by the other TVD co-developer/EP, Kevin Williamson.).
This has been a passion project for Wesley for years. The Confessions adaptation was one of the first pieces of development he took on when he launched Citizen Media in 2016 with a deal at Warner Bros TV. Smith’s article chronicles his two-year stint teaching public high school in northern California. Despite teaching while anesthetized by a heavy dose of prescription narcotics, Jason finds that his brokenness from addiction begins attracting broken students, and in a town obsessed with high school football, he’s not alone in his obsession to escape from himself.
During the project’s development with Kapital, Wesley reached out to his former TVD showrunner Plec, who came on board, along with Universal Television, where Plec’s My So-Called Company is based.
Wesley is executive producing with his former producing partner Bob Levy, Kapital’s Kaplan and Brian Morewitz as well as My So-Called Company’s Plec and Emily Cummins. Jessie Abbott is the creative executive at Kapital.
Wesley recently joined the cast of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, taking on the iconic role of James T. Kirk in the second season of the Paramount+ series. He can also be seen in Shudder feature History of Evil alongside Stephanie Beatriz. Wesley starred on The Vampire Diaries for eight seasons, directed multiple episodes throughout the series’ run, and served as a producer for the eighth and final season. He has also directed episodes of Roswell, New Mexico, Shadowhunters and Legacies. Wesley is repped by ICM Partners, Anonymous Content and attorney Marcy Morris.
Under her Uni TV deal, Plec has new series Vampire Academy for Peacock and has been executive producing freshman NBC series The Endgame. Additionally, she has series The Girls on the Bus at HBO Max and Legacies and Roswell, New Mexico on the CW. She is with Management 360 and Felker Toczek Suddleson.
Paul’s writing-producing credits include Heels, Animal Kingdom and Lodge 49. He is repped by UTA and Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka.
Volgens de laatste geruchten zouden Candice en haar man Joe uit elkaar zijn. Beiden hebben hierover zelf niets niet laten weten, maar fans lijken overtuigd te zijn van het feit. Voornamelijk omdat Candice haar gehele instagram inhoud heeft verwijderd en sindsdien niet meer met haar trouwring op een foto is verschenen.
Volgens de laatste berichten zou Kat tijdens haar afgelopen vakantie in Mexico ten huwelijk zijn gevraagd, zelf heeft ze er op social media nog niets over los gelaten.
Kat Graham (32), vooral bekend van haar rol als Bonnie Bennett in The Vampire Diaries, is verloofd. De actrice gaat trouwen met regisseur Darren Genet (35).
Darren Genet deed het aanzoek volgens People tijdens hun vakantie in Mexico. Daar waren ze vanwege zijn verjaardag. Graham is ‘vreselijk verliefd en kan haar geluk niet op’, zou een bron aan het Amerikaanse tijdschrift hebben verteld.
Het stel begon in 2017 met daten. Hoewel Darren Genet ook als regisseur betrokken is geweest bij een aantal afleveringen van The Vampire Diaries, is dit niet de plek waar het stel elkaar heeft ontmoet, schrijft People. Wel zou dit op ‘een set’ gebeurd zijn.
The CW heeft bekend gemaakt welke series een nieuwe seizoen krijgen of gecanceld worden. Dit keer moesten we lang wachten voordat bekend werd of ‘Legacies’ een nieuw seizoen zal krijgen, maar helaas heeft The CW besloten dat seizoen 4 de laatste seizoen. Hiermee komt een einde aan een era, na 13 jaar zal er geen ‘Vampire Diaries’ serie of spin-off meer op TV zijn na ruim 13 jaar!
Ook komt er na 4 seizoen een einde aan Roswell, New Mexico, het vierde seizoen dat op 6 juni begint zal de laatste zijn van de serie. In deze serie waren veel acteurs uit ‘The Vampire Diaries’ en ‘The Originals’ te zien waaronder Michael Trevina, Kayla Ewell, NathanP arsons en Riley Voelkel.
De precieze reden voor de beeindigenvan de serie zijn er niet, echter zijn er veel berichten te lezen dat dit komt doordat de samenvoeging van WB en Discovery en het feit dat de zender CW het niet zo goed doet. Kijkcijfers van ‘Legacies’ waren dit seizoen wel minder maar ook vele andere series zijn gecanceld door The CW, waaronder “Naomi,” “Batwoman,”. “Legends of Tomorrow”, “4400,” “Charmed,” “Dynasty,” en “In the Dark.” Waardoor de serie dit TV seizoen ruimt 9 van hun series niet doorlaat gaan, een hoog aantal.
