Yesss! ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey is back tonight, which also means the return of Taylor Spreitler as the free-spirited, awesomely spunky-sassy Lennox. This southern belle from Mississippi got her start in the biz at age six as a contestant in a statewide beauty and talent competition before going on to model and appear in commercials for everything from Chuck E. Cheese to Hess Oil. She got her big break on the soap Days of Our Lives, where she played Mia, a struggling pregnant teen. We’re super-pysched that as she gears up for the new season of Melissa and Joey, Taylor took time out to share some of her favorite reads with us. And we’re forever in her debt for introducing us to our new favorite phrase–“Butter my butt and call me a biscuit!” (Yeah, keep reading to figure out that one…)
