With Halloween just around the corner, BOP and Tiger Beat caught up with all our favorite celebs at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times 20th Annual Halloween Carnival at the Universal Studios Backlot. The event helped raise Camp money for kids who have been affected by cancer and their families. At the Carnival, Bella Thorne showed off her awesome poison ivy costume, and we got to play with her adorable puppy! We had a blast volunteering for such a great cause, and it was totally cool hanging out with James Maslow, Caroline Sunshine, Kenton Duty, Billy Unger, Peyton List, Stefanie Scott and so many more awesome celebs!
After hitting up the festive orange carpet, the stars headed to the Celebrity Autograph Table where they chatted with all their fans and signed hundreds of autographs. Troian Bellisario took a ton of pictures with everyone, and Raini Rodriguez headed over to the pumpkin patch to read a story for her fans. After the autograph table, Amandla Stenberg headed straight for the ice cream station in her vampire costume for a snack, and we caught Booboo Stewart in line for the Carnival games!

Kat McNamara and Kenton Duty‘s new movie, Contest tackles a serious issue- bullying. The film follows the unlikely friendship forged between a bully and one of his victims (Dan Flaherty).

In fact, the movie has partnered up with the Blue Shirt Day, an initiative by bullying prevention campaign STOMP Out Bullying. Check out what Kat and Kenton had to say about their new project and another behind-the-scenes pic below! Read the rest of this entry »
Breaking news! This very minute we got word that Shake It Up season 3 is a go! Yay! So much excitement to look forward to with Bella Thorne, Zendaya, Roshon and Caroline Sunshine. The super bad news is one of our favorite characters, Gunther — played by Kenton Duty — will not be returning as a series regular. Oh, no! But don’t worry, he WILL be back as a guest star throughout the season. We just spoke with Kenton, and here’s what he exclusively told BOP and Tiger Beat:
“I have had a wonderful time the past two years playing such a wonderful character that I was able to bring to life in such a memorable way. I have learned so much on the set of Shake It Up, and I have made wonderful friends, who have turned into my second family. Lately, I have been given so many diverse opportunities that I decided it was time to explore these great new offers. To my fans of the show, I will see you again next year when Gunther pops in to say ‘Hello Bay-Beees’!”
