Raven-Symoné Says Fired Univision Host Wasn't Racist: 'Some People Look Like Animals' (VIDEO)

Originally posted 03/18/2015 12:05PM

Raven-Symoné did not have a friend in Rosie Perez when she appeared as a guest cohost on The View on Monday.

While discussing Univision host Rodner Figueroa, who was fired last week for saying Michelle Obama "looks like she's from the cast of Planet of the Apes," the recurring Empire star, 29, jumped to his defense. "Was he saying it racist-like?" she asked. "Because he said that he voted for her later, and I don't think he was saying it racist."

An incredulous Perez, 50, likened Figueroa's claim that he voted for President Barack Obama to those who say they can't be racist because they "have black friends."

Originally posted 03/18/2015 11:10AM

If you thought Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special had everyone laughing, Will Ferrell says think again.

"I wanted to watch the monologue … with Steve Martin," Ferrell said Tuesday night on the Late Show with David Letterman, where he showed up dressed like a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day. "I look up, and there's [Fox News host] Bill O'Reilly."

"Everyone's just clapping, and Bill O'Reilly's like this," Ferrell said, mimicking O'Reilly with a hand under his chin looking stone-faced and unamused. "I don't know if he got a wrong seating assignment or something … but just a real sourpuss."

Pretty Little Liars Author Sara Shepard Spills Her 'A' Theories, Shares Backstage Photos

Originally posted 03/18/2015 09:25AM

Did you spot the special guest star in Tuesday's episode of Pretty Little Liars?

Sara Shepard, whose hit book series inspired the show, made a cameo as a court reporter who revealed devastating news: A surprise witness from Mona's (Janel Parrish) past had evidence that helped seal Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) fate. (Spoiler alert: She's still rocking an orange jumpsuit after the trial.)

"To come back and have a role was really fun," Shepard tells PEOPLE. "It's the same crew and the same writers and kind of the same team that was working on the show from the very beginning, and they're all still just as nice as when it started, when it was just this little show that nobody knew what was going to happen with it."

So who does make the author star-struck? Jay Jackson – better known as the lovably dense journalist Perd Hapley on Parks and Recreation – who also played a news anchor in Tuesday night's scene.

"When he came out of the trailer, I was like, 'I love you!' He was so sweet and really cool and made me feel very at ease, and we practiced our lines together," says Shepard, who also appeared as a substitute teacher in the first season. "He has daughters, and they read Pretty Little Liars, so that was a lot of fun."

Shepard, 37, shared behind-the-scenes photos from the PLL set exclusively with PEOPLE, and we picked her brain about the explosive upcoming finale, who she thinks "A" could be and how the TV series is different from her novels.

Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) is a pretty little prisoner.

The character whose disappearance, "death" and resurrection grounded the show for five seasons was wrongfully convicted of murdering Mona (Janel Parrish) on Tuesday night's episode of Pretty Little Liars.

And, at the end, her gal pals joined her in orange jumpsuits, arrested as accessories to the crime she didn't really commit.

With just one week left until the spring finale – and the big "A" reveal – here's what went down in Rosewood:
