Did I mention that this show precedes The 700 Club?  If you haven’t watched that, go ahead. You really should so some research on the show before you try and tell the world what it is about. Amy soon meets Jimmy, her mother's high school boyfriend's son, on a trip to visit Mimsy, her grandmother, and really likes him. Amy and Ricky run off to get married but don't go through with the wedding because the director of the chapel they go to is crazy.
Reason: Jimmy finds a condom in Amy's purse, and he's not really ready to be with her and John.
Reason: Amy realized that Ben was not the one for her and that Ricky was while she was in Hudson University (Revealed by Brenda Hampton).
Amy originally joined band because she had a crush on an unnamed boy, according to The Secret Diary of the American Teenager. She had her first kiss, lost her virginity, and became pregnant to Ricky Underwood, all of this the same night.
Amy does not know Ricky cheated on her twice after they agreed to start a relationship in New York. Proposed to Ricky Underwood in an attempt to compete with Adrian Lee and Ben Boykewich when she learns of their engagement. Continued the competition with Adrian, until an incident in the hallway in the episode "Loose Lips". Angered Ben Boykewich in an attempt to insult his relationship with Adrian.  He turned the tables and also insulted her relationship with Ricky Underwood. She keeps an e-diary where she admits to still wanting to be with Ben, being jealous of Adrian, and believing that Ricky and Adrian could have been happy if they'd stayed together.
Chris Pine is one of the fastest rising stars in Hollywood and it seems folks want to know everything about him. This undeniably handsome male actor has moved at warp speed to mega-watt celebrity status in what seems like a nanosecond. I’m not really interested in how much wealth they have accumulated or who they may be sleeping with.
And so I’ve followed Chris Pine’s career and glimpsed into his past, which has afforded me a bit of insight which I would like to share with you here. What follows are 5 Life Lessons we can all learn from Chris Pine to help us reach important life goals .
One of the first things that leaps out about Chris Pine is his ability to embrace diversity.
While many actors are fearful of any roles which might typecast them, Pine took the opposite approach. Another characteristic that becomes obvious about Pine when you study his past is simply this – he is down to earth and real.
Many people do not know this but in March of 2014, Pine was found guilty of a DUI (Driving While Intoxicated) in a New Zealand court.
I suspect the strength of Pine’s character, his honesty, caused him to own his mistake and not make a public spectacle of the event like so many celebs do in a pathetic play for press. One of the things that sticks out about Pine is that self-care has become ritualized in his life.
Pine has appeared in a new film or television show since 2003 and in some years, multiple films. When you look at his workouts, as featured in Men’s Health he engages in more than mere strength training. It is easy for outsiders to see a celebrity of Pine’s fame and perhaps think to themselves, “Oh must have it so easy!” In truth, it’s completely opposite for many stars.
With the celebrities and film writers I have consulted with as a behavioral scientist, I can share with you that many are under a great deal of stress almost all of the time.
Look at the record – ever since graduating with a bachelors degree in 2002 from University of California Berkeley, he has continuously worked ever since.
As I shared at the beginning of this article, Chris Pine has a secret …and it’s a secret to success. Last updated: 22 Jul 2014Views expressed are those solely of the writer and have not been reviewed.
When Secret Life came out in 2008, I thought the whole show was developed to prevent teenage pregnancy. There is a Christian girl, who now promises to only have sex with those who promise marriage. It takes a message, makes the characters the most extreme versions of themselves and make the main issues almost laughable, because the worst thing in these kids’ lives seems to be homework.
She is the older sister of Ashley Juergens and Robie Johnson. During season 1, Amy gives birth to her son, John Juergens, making her a teen mother at the age of 15. However, when he doesn't return her call, Amy turns to Ricky for "kissing lessons," which her sister sees the beginning of. Ricky later visits Ben at his home and takes him to see Amy in an attempt to get them back together. With Ricky's urging, Ben and Amy talk and decide that they would give their hopes and dreams to another after Adrian tries to tell Ben that she had a false alarm. She and Madison are no longer friends because she took Lauren's side after Madison slept with Jesse.
While in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Amy says it was to over come her fear of "the wolf" in the song "Peter and the Wolf" and to please her mother.
Fans are curious about who Pine is dating, what he looks like shirtless and if those aqua blue eyes are real! You see by exploring their life challenges and their struggles, we can gain a better understanding of how they arrived at a place of success in the here and now.


He played the part of a gay man (Shawn Christian) in the Television movie, Surrender Dorothy (2006) starring Diane Keaton. In numerous interviews, the reporters describe the star as “laid back” and non-pretentious.
Many are unaware that Chris Pine’s father, Robert, is a celebrity in his own right – with a number of roles and credits under his belt with parts on popular 70’s shows like CHiPS, Magnum PI , Star Trek and Beverly Hills 90210. The first is that Pine acknowledged through his lawyer that he made the wrong decision the evening the DUI took place. While I am not OK with anyone involved with driving while intoxicated and think what he did was dangerous to others and himself, I do think there is something to be said for owning a mistake. Perhaps this is because he needs to stay in shape for the entertainment industry however, I suspect something else is at play.
My sense is that Pine, like most actors who want to remain relevant and employed, need to find healthy ways of working through stress. Specifically, we see he engages in Yoga and boxing – two activities that are known to be effective for stress reduction and channeling pent up energy. There is an old saying in the entertainment industry that goes something like this – you are only as good as your last show. These stresses include: the need to find new “gigs”, rejection for various roles, a lack of privacy, constant media attention and image management.
Being able to properly channel that stress in healthy ways is key to survival and long term success. He has propelled himself to mega-watt celebrity status in record time and did so with more than just “good looks”. John Moore infuses current events, pop-culture and a bit of Hollywood into his posts as a way of communicating wider points on issues related to wellness and goal attainment. I thought it was funny because it was an American teenager, which makes America look awesome, and also because it was on a family channel owned by Disney. The biggest thing, though, is that every kid there apparently doesn’t know what a condom feels like. If I am completely out of line, let me know, but if you ask me, an 18-year-old girl in this situation might have bigger issues. They follow a show that’s filled with this glorified version of teen pregnancy and premarital sex, with a show against choice and birth control. She is also Ricky Underwood's wife (she married Ricky after a couple of years, confirmed by Brenda Hampton)[1]. She has to attend summer school because she failed to complete some assignments due to her pregnancy. Amy soon confronts Jimmy about him not calling her back and the two make up, but it is too late for everyone else.
Later on though, she gets betrayed by the two who become friends again and bond over their annoyance toward Amy. Amy mentors Kathy, a pregnant freshman from Texas who gives birth to her daughter in the episode "Hedy's Happy Holiday House." She gives up her daughter to the adoptive parents.
While in Italy Ben cheated on Amy with Maria, an Italian girl he met while on his trip to Bologna.
And since this blog is about reaching life goals, it seems to be the perfect conduit for sharing. While he identifies as heterosexual, he has cultivated a large gay following.  Because growing a fan base for celebrities is a game of addition, Pine knew early on that it was important to connect with all segments of society.
This role did not seem to harm him as it would only be 3 short years later that he would play the role of Captain James T.
By his own account, he is not nearly as macho as the character he portrays in Star Trek as Captain Kirk. The particulars of the incident can be found in a People Magazine article available online.
While these may seem like minor issues, I encourage you to imagine walking in their shoes and do away with the glitz-and-glam. The nerdy band guy who was supposed to be a nice guy has married both the show’s protagonist and the previously mentioned “loose girl,” giving him a grand total of two divorces for those keeping score. Having heard this news, Ben becomes guilty over the job in Italy he has been offered by his uncle who lives in Bologna, a city. The incident with Ricky has already spread and causes Ben and Adrian to have sex for both revenge and comfort.
During all of this, she has a hard time during summer school balancing her large amount of work with her friends (from Chicago that she met in New York) and having fun. Amy breaks off her engagement to Ricky Underwood and cancels their wedding, saying that while she loves him, she is not in love with him, nor is he in love with her, and he is only marrying her because of John. His humanness, a genuine characteristic that cannot be manufactured or faked, is likely a result of his upbringing.
I taught education and health workshops in inner-city schools with lower pregnancy rates than this fictional school. Let’s follow the most improbable show on TV with a show that would call every character on it heathens. Amy got pregnant and in the first episode she takes a pregnancy test, which is assumed positive, since the writers didn't give us much info at that point. Amy becomes jealous and asks to go with him. However, her parents forbid her to go because of her responsibilities at home with John.
As far as her love life at the beginning, she just goes through minor obstacles such as trying to get Ricky into college and to take her to the school dance.
Amy then feels pressured by Ricky, her friends and her family to set a date for this wedding.


He considers his father to be his hero, according to the same information appearing in US Magazine. The real issue I have with shows about teen pregnancy is that they are pretty much detrimental to the cause. Any teenager knows that the setup was fake, and therein lies the problem: you make a fake show about a serious issue. Amy and Ben eventually break up due to the fact that he wants more out of their relationship. Amy is accepted into a music program in New York, but insists she can't go because of John and her remaining schoolwork. Yet, soon enough they get into a huge fight over Amy snooping on Ricky's phone to listen to the messages he saved from Adrian (who was trying to seduce him).
She also chooses to go to Hudson University in New York, where Leo offered her the basement floor and Ben the top floor of a three floor apartment while she's in school. His mother’s work has a helping professional no doubt has also had a profound impact on his worldview.
The bigger problem is that they make pregnancy almost seem like there are no consequences, because they are all living mostly well.
Her best friends are Lauren Treacy and Madison Cooperstein who are the first to know about Amy. Amy begins to develop a relationship with Ricky that makes Ben uncomfortable, because he believes Ricky is using the baby to get closer to Amy. Though she gets support from her friends and family including Ricky who decides to stay at her house while shes in New York to watch John. Further on in the season, Amy goes through a rough patch when a rumor goes around school that her mother, Anne, may be gay. She comes back to the butcher shop with her parents several times as she debates whether or not to leave, even though she knows she will be back. Of the 45% and higher sexually active students while I was there, only 3% had gotten pregnant.
Amy and Ben later break up in the halls of Grant High even though Ben asks her to talk. She later visits Ben when he is with his Italian friend Maria, where Amy becomes jealous of her.
This leads the students to start a rumor that Amy herself may be gay as well, because they thought it was genetic. She works and is a mom, but she can afford to live in a nice apartment, has someone living with her and has been married once and is engaged again. I’m telling you, if you want to glorify tough issues, you get a public that thinks they are fictional. Later afterwords with his father, Ben goes to see Amy in New York to tell her about Adrian's pregnancy.
In addition to this, people were starting to say that she picked the 4th of July because it was a gay holiday, although this was completely untrue. Thankfully for her, the whole situation blew over due to a situation between Adrian and Grace. I want to know what happened to the whole message that pregnancy is a negative thing when it happens in your teens. In episode 5, What Have You Done To Me? Ben asks Amy to marry him.He asked her due to her pregnancy, and she was emotional because of that. She is furious that Ben waited so long to tell her, and that she was the last person to know.
Just like in my last article, when I mentioned that child actors have an issue telling if things are imaginary or real, the same is true for the audience that watches these shows about teen pregnancy like 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
I never watched full seasons of this crap because these shows are sending the opposite message. Amy, Ben, and all of their friends get fake IDs and in episode 12, The Secret Wedding of the American Teenager, they get fake married and have a wedding reception.
While this article deals with what I have seen in Secret Life, let it be known I am no supporter of other shows that capitalize on children in such a manner. They realize that they never tried to be together since Amy was always with Ben so they talked about trying to be together. After Amy comes home she explains to Ben that she and Ricky should try to be a family for their son. Amy decides to go back to Grant High School and Grace and the rest of her girls walk her down the hall in Back to School Special. Amy then persuades Ricky to ask her and John out on a date to try and make their relationship work. The last moment of the season shows Amy, Ricky and John eating dinner at Ricky's apartment sharing yet another day together. Ricky sabotages the adoption interviews with Donovan and his partner because Ricky wants to keep the baby. Amy finally decides to keep her son with the help of Ricky, Ben, and all her friends and family.
In One Night At Band Camp it shows the back story of band camp and what happened between Ricky and Amy. In And Unto Us, A Child Is Born Amy gives birth to her son and everyone meets the baby for the first time.
