Is Ashley Benson Pregnant?

'PLL' Star Ashley Benson Teases That She's Pregnant With Baby Bu
"Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson did a little lying on Instagram yesterday by posting photos of herself with a baby bump. Some fans were fooled, while others were quick to notice the deception.

On Thursday, the actress uploaded an image of herself lying on a coach with co-star Tyler Blackburn's hand on her belly. "First trimester," she captioned the pic.

One hour later, she posted a photo of PLL director Norman Buckley's hand on her stomach and the caption: "Third trimester."

The rapid acceleration of pregnancy points to a trick.

"Your belly doesn't just get that big in 14 hou...

Once again, all four of the Liars end up together until “A” interferes in the "Pretty Little Liars" season five finale.

“A” abducts them from the van transporting them to the jail. Spencer is the first to wake up, where she finds herself in a replica of her room. The same goes for the rest of them, being locked up and watched by “A.” “A” then releases them into the house -- a human dollhouse.

Then they find someone whom we all don’t expect to see. MONA! Mona, in a blonde wig, surprises them. And this time, Mona feels different because Mona thinks she is Alison. Mona acts as if she is brai...

As for Hanna, well she's still in her orange suit. She shouldn't feel alone, because Ali has become her jail buddy. Ali gets Hanna up to date with what she was up to in the past.

Right where the last episode left off, Spencer is still stuck in London. She finds peace of mind hanging with her sister's roommate, Colin, and doing normal 18-year-old Londoner things, like drinking a "pint" in a pub. Drawn to him, Spencer kisses Colin and who knows what else as the screen fades away. The feels fade away quick when she has to return home to be with the Liars.

Hanna finds out that the cops are targeting her for Mona's murder. Alison is offered a plea bargain to name Hanna as an accomplice, and Hanna starts to lose her mind. She confides in her mom and while she tries to fi...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5, Episode 21 Recap: [SPOILER] Visi
The episode kicks of with the Liars minus Hanna visiting Ali in jail, where they apologize for putting her in jail without actually apologizing. (Did anyone notice them go to school after prison visitation? Do they have visitation hours before 7am?) Ali, quite the popular jail-ee, gets a visit from Mrs. Hastings as well. Ali assures her that she wants to go to trial because it's her time to tell the truth. She then asks Mrs. Hastings to coach her in the right direction. With some constantly messing with her in jail, Ali is desperate to get out. Hanna then visits her after realizing forgiven...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5, Episode 20 Recap: [SPOILER] Danc
The episode begins with the Liars going through Mike's stuff while he is out. They probably should have second guessed this idea because Mike currently has some anger issues and might strike back. They don't find the good stuff, but they do find a newly bought necklace.

Mike continues to leave goodies around town. This time, instead of the Liars following him, Aria sends Andrew. He agrees, because, well, he might like Aria enough to do anything for her. Andrew reports back to Aria about Mike hiding a bag in a tree and Aria goes to retrieve it. Turns out, Mike had hidden a tube of Mona's b...

Goody girl Aria has been up to no good recently. This time she's been caught cheating on a math test by Andrew, who then decides to tutor her. Can Andrew do no wrong? With the stress of "A," her friends and Mike, who could blame her. Mike threw her whole morning off by sneaking into the blood drive room her and the Liars were donating blood to. Blood and who's blood is where is the biggest question going around Rosewood. You'd think the Liars would protect their own. But Mike managed to flee the scene with their blood tubes.

Aria, in attempts to "protect her own," follows Mike's tracks in ...

Meet Lesley, Mona's friend that no one has heard of. Claiming to know Mona, Hanna can't find a relation between the Mona she knew. Though she says she's here to support Mona's mom, could Lesley be here for the wrong reasons?

Aria finds out that Mike, of all people, has been visiting Ali in jail. She follows him to the lake to find that he's leaving treat bags there. Is that for someone or a special way to remember Mona, his girlfriend killed by Ali whom he's now visiting in jail. Hmmmm. Spencer and Hanna don't trust Mile and see him as the con...

We can clear the air by the fact that Aria can breathe now. She finally works up the courage to tell Ezra about the Ezra-bashing letter she wrote to Jackie. Mr. Prince Charming... He doesn't care of course. He is as calm as a turtle. But remember, turtles have feelings they can't express and so does Ezra.

Speaking of feelings, Spencer has many. Surprisingly she wasn't making as many appearances as usual. Spencer staying low? No biggie though because Caleb recruits someone else to take her spot. Actually he is pushed to do it. Hanna makes Caleb take her to the storage unit to clear signs of...

Are you kidding, another mysterious letter man/woman? As all the Liars deal with their on-going, personal issues, Aria receives a mysterious text from "H." Just when we thought we are very close to the "A" reveal, another letter pops up. And then Mona suddenly pops up too. Spencer is in her element, meeting the new tenant to the guesthouse, when she receives a text of Mona's laptop location. Mona Is very much dead, yet still working overtime.

Caleb gets on tracking the laptop down with his hacking skills and he and Spencer venture out to retrieve the it from a mysterious stora...

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: [SPOILER] 'A' Turns Up The Heat

Episode 15
As we learned with the last episode, Aria was freaking out and this episode started off with just that. The girls were back to school and doing what they should be doing, talking about college. Okay, mostly talking about "A," but also being normal and talking about their future. I mean, how long have they been applying to their prospective schools? I'd say it feels like years. And finally, each one is receiving their acceptance letters. Everyone except Aria.

In episode 14, Aria started receiving her rejection letters. By now, she has been rejected to all of her potential schools. Freaking ...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5 Winter Premiere Recap [SPOILER]: Ali Goes To Jail

1/7/2015 9:39am EST
Pretty little liars
The Liars are back, and they are most certainly as naive as they were before. You'd think things would be different this time around. With all the hints show producer Marlene King has been dropping, can we at least get the Liars to a point where they aren't so oblivious to "A" and his/her tactics?

The episode started off slower than expected. Actually, the entire episode was slow. I guess with all the hype surrounding Mona's death and funeral, we were mislead to expect more. But I give props because there were a few laughs to keep me awake.

The timeline continues at a few months post-Mona...

'Pretty Little Liars' Actress Troian Bellisario Engaged To 'Suits' Star

2/25/2014 1:17am EST
Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams
Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario and her longtime boyfriend, Suits Star Patrick J. Adams, have gotten engaged.

The acting couple, who began dating in 2011, first met in 2009 while rehearsing for a play. The two stars have been able to successfully make things work despite having to keep up a long-distance relationship. The two spend a lot of time apart, with Troian, 28, based in Los Angeles for her ABC Family channel show and Patrick, 32, in Toronto most of the time, where "Suits" is filmed.

"It's constant coordinating. It's really hard to be away from the person you love," Troi...

Ashley Benson Says She Won't Be Tempted To Take Drugs Or Go Topl
Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson says there are two things that she draws the line for in her life: drugs and nudity.

The 24-year-old actress landed the cover spot on the March isue of Cosmopolitan magazine, and in her accompanying interview the actres says that there's a slim chance that she may strip off for a role sometime in the future, but only if its tasteful.

"I never want to do nudity that's gratuitous," she says. "Girls look so much better in lingerie or a t-shirt and leave the rest up to the imagination. I make it clear that I have a line."

‘Pretty Little Liars’ S4E12 Recap: The Stalker King

8/28/2013 10:00pm EDT
Pretty Little Liars
Despite several desperate (and mostly ludicrous) moves on A’s part, “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” felt pretty lackluster for a summer finale. For the episode’s first half, the liars did what they do best: repeatedly receive increasingly violent threats from A whilst standing around panicking together. Because involving the police is out of the question (why is that, again?), the girls enlisted themselves, as well as Toby and Caleb, to put a stop to A’s newest murder plan. Oh, and don’t even get me started on that “cliffhanger.” A’s not the only one getting desperate, it would seem.

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 4 Finale: 'A' Shows Face

You’re either reading this and already know what happened in the “Pretty Little Liars” summer finale or you are reading this with no intentions of watching. So here it is, the episode’s biggest shocker.

EZRA IS "A!" Check your twitter feed, #EzrA is trending big time. Hello Ian Harding fans.

Take a moment to breathe.

Yes, the show ended with the biggest cliffhanger I have experienced for the entire series. Ezra is shown entering “A’s” lair, a scene that makes it seem as though he is “A” himself. Is this a joke? It couldn’t be. Is this the usual moment of giving the viewers a surprise tha...

'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E11 Recap: [SPOILER] Down Under

8/22/2013 8:30am EDT
There are a few reasons why I have decided to name this recap “down under.” In all honesty, this episode was all over the place. There was entirely too much going on for a 45 min span. So, by concluding the entire episode into my “down under” topic, I will only mention the important details.

First, the girls investigate the blonde in the red coat’s living quarters “down under” the DiLaurentis house. They don’t find much except a clothing button and fall into a trap of almost getting shot in the eye with a needle.

Second, red coat managed to escape from Spencer and Emily after hiding out “...

Remember when A was being a weirdo and drilling holes in someone’s floor? And removing porch panels so she/he/it could climb underneath a house? Well, like all of A’s secret plans, this one had a purpose–to spy on the DiLaurentis’ home from the safety of their dank, dark basement. That’s right–A, possibly homeless and definitely crazy, set up a cozy little hideaway complete with a sleeping bag and various pieces of trash (A’s a surprisingly huge slob, FYI) BENEATH A DEAD GIRL’S HOUSE. You’re such a psycho, A. But you’re also smarter than everyone on the show, including the police? At this r...

As if Emily’s life wasn’t complicated and kind of depressing already, she moves into the DiLaurentis house after an offer from Ali’s mom. After what we saw last week (red coat sneaking into the house), there are bound to be some answers that Emily now has the chance to find.  This come quicker than expected as they find what seems to be a squatter pad in the basement of the DiLaurentis house.  Emily notices that the squatter poked holes in the kitchen floor for someone to hear and see what’s going on above.

Pretty Little Liars
Hasn’t this season of Pretty Little Liars felt a little slow in comparison to previous seasons? Nine episodes in and the police are still tracking down Wilden’s murderer while the Alison case (minor developments and Mona’s premiere confessional aside) has been mostly static–shouldn’t we be learning a bit more at this point, rather than treading previously-explored ground? Instead of being pushed along, story lines–like Emily’s injured arm, Ashley’s legal trouble, Spencer’s proclivity for enthusiastically suspecting everyone at some point or another, and Aria’s new relationship–are being exp...

It’s Emily’s birthday and nothing says a Rosewood party like someone floating face down in the creek.  There’s something Jenna didn’t see coming, but really, she didn’t see it coming, she’s losing her sight again.  After Emily saved her, she realized that she had been hit on the back of the head and pushed in because of the blood on her shirt.

Jake comes to the party with another girl, which has Aria jealous. Their night ends in a little lip locking and the talk about starting a relationship. Meanwhile, Ezria is about to start the fight of his life as he tries to get custody of Malcolm.

The episode of 'Pretty Little Liars' had a mellow beginning with the focus being on Ashley Marin and her trial details. The trial is still set to happen, seeing as there is no evidence in Mona’s statement, but Marin is released on bail. The bad news is that no one knows what may be the result of Marin’s case. She could still be found guilty if evidence points towards her. Till then, she is on house arrest. Hanna pleased and less emotional finds comfort in her mom’s return home and doesn’t leave her side. Pastor Ted shows up as well to comfort the Marin girls.

Pretty Little Liars
On last night’s Pretty Little Liars, Aria sought help protecting her brother, Spencer continued Toby’s quest for the truth about his mother, Emily planned for her future, and Hanna enlisted Mona to be her lying coach. Isn’t Pretty Little Liars so much more fun when Mona’s around? Especially since she’s joined Team Liars. Despite being a devious liar and A+ criminal, Mona often seems like the sanest member of the group–very level-headed and intelligent, though she did learn from the best. And it doesn’t hurt that Ezra and Jake also made appearances in “The Guilty Girl’s Handbook,” making the...

In last weeks Pretty Little Liars ending, Hanna was ready to admit that her mother may have been Wilden’s killer. Looks like that was a tip to this week’s topic of interest—Hanna.

If things weren’t already messy for the Marin family, the situation just got messier. Ashley seeks counsel from Spencer’s mom, Veronica . Not admitting she is guilty of Wilden’s murder, Ashley asks Veronica for help with her side of the story. The more Ashley is open about her involvement in Wilden’s case, the more Hanna is going beyond her means to keep her mother’s story under wrapped. While snooping around the...

Quite a few dots were connected in last week’s episode.

We begin with Spencer. Family secrets begin to spill the more the Hastings’ family members dig. Spencer reveals to Melissa and her mother of her rejection to UPenn. Melissa didn’t seem too shock of it. Was the rejection a part of “A’s” games, and did Melissa have anything to do with? Later, using Melissa while she’s home for a few days, Spencer plants the mask of Melissa’s face in Melissa’s suitcase, who then finds it and goes to hunt down the curator. She finds all of her face masks and destroys them before throwing them into the lak...
