How Ashley Benson & Shay Mitchell Got Nickname ButtahBenzo

Wonder how PLL besties Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell got the name ButtahBenzo?  Here is Shay Mitchell’s explanation for how the nickname came about.

Shortly after Shay Mitchell first came to Los Angeles and landed the role of Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars, Shay also shot a music video for Sean Paul.  Sean Paul was always joking around with Shay’s name and he came up with the name ShayButtah.

Ashley Benson’s nickname has always been AshBenzo.

So they put ShayButtah and AshBenzo together to become ButtahBenzo.

PLL 6B Spoilers: Liars Still Making Mistakes and Committing Break-Ins

The Liars may have changed during the five year time jump, but expect them to still fall back into old habits and make bad choices.  Troian Bellisario (Spencer) and PLL showrunner Marlene King talk about Spencer’s future and gave some PLL spoilers in this interview.

The Liars will have new jobs, clothes, and hairstyles (check out Spencer's new bangs), but their roles remain the same.  “Spencer is definitely leading the charge”, Troian said.  “Even though these girls are five years older, they still fall into the same roles and relationships with each other.”  There’s a wonderful moment in season 6B when the girls turn to Spencer and ask her what to do.

The Liars try to fight against these old habits.  They keep saying “I don’t do this anymore”, but they end up using bad judgment anyway.  Marlene spilled that the Liars will break into Veronica Hastings’s office.

We know Spencer will be in the world of politics when PLL returns in January.  When asked what Spencer’s alternate career would be, Troian Bellisario almost gives another spoiler.  Marlene quickly stops Troian before she can tell us what might be next in Spencer’s career path.

New PLL Season 6 Poster: Another Funeral

Get ready for another PLL death.  All the Liars are wearing sunglasses and looking grown-up in this sexy new PLL season 6 poster.  In the photo, the Liars are carrying a coffin.  (Take a look at the other promotional PLL season 6 poster released earlier).



The poster’s tagline is “Are you strong enough to carry your secrets?”, which hints at the new secrets we expect to see when PLL returns.  From the PLL November special “5 Years Forward”, we know Emily returns to Rosewood with a secret that she doesn’t even share with her friends.  And in the promo video for season 6B, we learn that Aria did something on September 12 that she wants to keep hidden.

Now we finally know that the PLL photo shoot back in October was for this poster.  Check out the behind-the-scenes photos of the girls at the photo shoot for the promotional PLL season 6B poster.

Liking this new poster better than the previously released poster.  What do you think of the photo?  Who do you think is in the casket?  We know that the new Big Bad is motivated by a death.

Lucy Hale (Aria) mentioned Aria’s new boyfriend Liam in the Pretty Little Liars November special “5 Years Forward”.  Lucy Hale has also hinted at the love triangle her character will be in when Aria gets torn between Liam and Ezra.

Pretty Little Liars isn’t Robert’s first time on a television show.  He played Orion in two episodes of NCIS: New Orleans.

Robert Aguire’s film credits include Boulevard, which was one of Robin Williams’s last films. Robert was also in Redemption and The Morning After.

Robert Aguire is currently dating Harry Potter star Emma Watson (Hermione Granger).

Season 6B of Pretty Little Liars will bring a lot of new faces.  Actor Huw Collins is joining the PLL cast as Dr. Rollins and Ashley Benson was happy to work with her friend and fellow Days of Our Lives actor Blake Berris.

Are you excited to see all these new faces on PLL?

New PLL Season 6B Poster

The new PLL season 6B poster is here and it’s dirty.  Check out the poster that features Ashley Benson (Hanna), Shay Mitchell (Emily), Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Lucy Hale (Aria), Sasha Pieterse (Alison) and a bunch of dirt spilling out of a car.



The Pretty Little Liars posters tend to be controversial.  PLL stars Ashley Benson (Hanna) and Troian Bellisario (Spencer) have both criticized how much previous PLL posters were photoshopped.

What does the PLL cast think of the new season 6B poster?  Lucy posted a photo of it with the caption “Grown up and still dirty.”  PLL showrunner Marlene King captioned the poster “Still playing in the dirt.”

The dirt in the poster may be hinting at the mysterious death we will see in season 6B.  Marlene King has talked about a death that will cause the new Big Bad to seek revenge.

What do you think of the new PLL season 6B poster?  Love it or hate it?

PLL Cast Talk Favorite Coffee

The PLL cast loves coffee.  They often post behind-the-scenes photos of themselves on set with their favorite coffee drinks.  Ever wonder what kind of coffee they love?  Ashley Benson (Hanna on PLL), Shay Mitchell (Emily on PLL) and Troian Bellisario (Spencer on PLL) share their favorite coffee orders in this ABC Family OTF/“On The Fly” video.  Unfortunately Lucy Hale (Aria), who loves coffee, isn’t featured in this video.

Ashley Benson’s go-to coffee order is a large ice coffee with a third of hazelnut powder and extra ice.

Shay Mitchell loves ordering ice coffee with one packet of brown sugar and a tiny drop of almond milk.

Troian Bellisario orders iced coffee with some almond milk.



What’s your go-to coffee drink?

Troian Bellisario Shares Funny Fan Mail Photos

Troian Bellisario, Spencer on PLL, gets a lot of fan mail.  (Here’s Troian Bellisario’s fan mail address).  Troian shared lots of fan mail photos that she wrote funny captions on.

Troian seems to get a lot of photos with requests for her to sign them.  Unfortunately, fans often send photos of someone else entirely.  (Lucy Hale, Aria on PLL, will be able to relate to that.  Lucy’s fans have mistaken her for actress Selena Gomez).

"Hey Tod I don't know who this is but it's not me!" Troian wrote after a fan requesting an autograph sent her photo of someone else to sign.

A photo posted by Troian Bellisario (@sleepinthegardn) on

Another fan made the same mistake, leaving Troian to wonder "Why do people think that this is me?"  "Et tu, Brian?" Troian captioned this photo.

Lucy Hale Talks Ezra & New Love Liam on PLL (6B Spoilers)

The second half of Pretty Little Liars season six will be rough for Ezria fans.  In the November special of PLL “Five Years Forward”, Lucy Hale revealed that her character Aria is in love with Liam.  Lucy has now given even more details about Aria’s love life in season 6B.  Seems like Aria will be torn between her new love Liam and her former love Ezra.


When we start PLL season 6B, it will seem like Aria has moved on.  Aria is “very happy and in love” with her new boyfriend Liam, Lucy Hale told People.

However, that doesn’t mean Aria’s feelings for Ezra are completely gone.  “That's what happens, you break up with the person you love, you go in different directions, and so I don't really know what their contact was in those five years. I want to say they probably didn't talk at all, because there is a scene in an episode back where she realizes he's back in town and you can tell there's still that butterflies-in-her-stomach feeling,” Lucy said.

And even if Aria and Ezra aren’t dating, they will still have a lot of interaction with each other.  However, their relationship has evolved.  “It's sort of a different kind of a relationship.  You've never seen them have a mature friendship like this, and they start working with each other.”

Are you excited to see Aria with someone new or are you waiting for Aria to get back together with Ezra?

Recap of PLL "5 Years Forward" Special (6B Spoilers)

The Pretty Little Liars "5 Years Forward" November special wasn't a regular PLL episode. Instead, it was one hour of interviews, sneak peeks, relationship details and spoilers for season 6B. Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse, Ian Harding, Tyler Blackburn and Tyler Blackburn all took part in the special. Here are the highlights of the PLL "5 Years Forward" special.

Liars and Their Significant Others During the 5 Year Time Jump:


Aria:
Aria went to Georgia and majored in photography, but she rediscovered her love for writing. She transferred to Boston and changed majors to writing. Aria eventually started working for a publisher. Despite appearing to move on from the torture inflicted by "A", Aria is still in denial and isn't fully over what happened to her in the past. Aria hides behind her work and her relationships.

Hanna:
Hanna studied fashion at FIT in New York and interned for Zac Posen. In Europe, she met her current boss Claudia Greco, who she now works for as an assistant.

Spencer:
Spencer went to Georgetown. With "A" gone, she finally got to focus on academics and she got involved in politics. After graduating from Georgetown, she started working on Capitol Hill for a lobbyist. However, she's essentially a glorified coffee gopher. When PLL returns, Spencer will be living in the Hastings barn. Spencer will also be helping her mom run for a seat in the Senate.

PLL 5 Years Forward Sneak Peek: Ashley Benson Picked Theme Song “Secret”

“Secret” by The Pierces is the perfect theme song for Pretty Little Liars.  In fact, it’s so perfect that people often assume the song was written for the show.  In this sneak peek for the PLL "5 Years Forward" special, we find out how "Secret" was chosen as the show's theme song.

Actress Ashley Benson (Hanna) was the one who suggested using “Secret” as the theme song for PLL.  Troian Bellisario (Spencer) remembers Ashley Benson playing the song on her cell phone and asking PLL showrunner Marlene King to use it as the theme song.


Thanks to Ashley Benson, Pretty Little Liars has the perfect theme song.  When PLL returns for the second half of season 6, it will have a new opening title sequence to go with the theme song.  Sasha Pieterse (Alison) joins the other actresses in the intro.  Also, all the girls will do the “shhh” that Lucy Hale (Aria) did in previous seasons.  Check out the new opening sequence and get a behind-the-scenes look at the girls filming the new PLL intro.

PLL 5 Years Forward Special Sneak Peek: How PLL Moms Escaped the Basement

The summer finale of PLL “Game Over, Charles” left fans with a lot of unanswered questions.  One question fans had was what happened to the PLL moms.  We saw “A” trap them in the DiLaurentis basement, but we never saw them rescued.  Fans joked that the moms were forgotten and still trapped in the basement.

In this sneak peek of the Pretty Little Liars special “5 Years Forward” the actresses who play the PLL moms give their theories on how the moms escaped the basement after “A” trapped them.

Actress Lesley Fera, Veronica Hastings on PLL, joked that they lived off Mr. DiLaurentis’s scotch for a while.  Her theory is that Mr. DiLaurentis eventually came down to do the laundry and rescued them.


Pretty Little Liars “5 Years Forward” airs tonight, November 24th at 8pm/7c on ABC Family.

PLL 5 Years Forward Sneak Peek: New Big Bad

PLL actresses Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell talk about the new Big Bad in this sneak peek of the Pretty Little Liars “Five Years Forward” special episode.

The Liars come back to Rosewood when Alison asks them to help Charlotte, but an event occurs that forces the girls to stay in Rosewood.

The Liars start getting messages again.  They know the new messages aren’t from Charlotte.  Actress Troian Bellisario (Spencer) explains that this time the messages feel different.  It’s not about exposing secrets this time.  It is paranoia, blackmail and life-threatening situations.

Actor Keegan Allen (Toby) agrees.  It’s no longer a manipulation game.  It’s now more dark and twisted.

Moving forward, the Liars aren’t victims.  They are ready to fight back against the new Big Bad in this life-or-death situation.


Watch the PLL special “5 Years Forward” tonight, November 24th at 8pm/7c.

Shay Mitchell & Lucy Hale Talk About Their First Cars

PLL actresses Shay Mitchell (Emily) and Lucy Hale (Aria) talk about their first cars in this OTF/“On The Fly” ABC Family video.

Shay Mitchell’s first car was a blue/purple Volkswagen Golf.  Her parents gave it to her when she turned 16.  They even put a huge bow on the car.  Shay used to call the car her “little blueberry”.

Lucy Hale’s first car was a Prius.  She got her license at 18 instead of 16 because she was scared of all the crazy drivers in Los Angeles.  That car was her first major purchase.

PLL 6B Spoilers: New Villain More Deadly Than Last “A”

The new Big Bad will be more dangerous than the previous “A”s when PLL returns for the second half of season 6.  The new “A” raises the stakes and isn’t playing games with the Liars.  For this new “A”, it’s all about revenge and getting answers.


Credit: Marlene King's Instagram
PLL stars Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale and Sasha Pieterse explained to MTV how this new villain is different than Mona and Charlotte (CeCe).  “The situations are more life or death, so it’s not just all dolls and games.  There’s none of that stuff. It’s definitely not fun and games — he’s not trying to play with them. He threatens them,” Ashley Benson said.

Lucy Hale agreed.  “It’s definitely life or death, and it’s smarter and edgier and deadlier.  The stakes are definitely a lot higher. It’s not ’I’m going to expose your secrets.’ It’s 'I’m going to kill you if you don’t give me what I want,'” Lucy said.

PLL 6B Spoilers: Hanna is Engaged, But No Children Yet

Ashley Benson, Hanna on PLL, is excited about Hanna’s new life and new relationship.  When we return for season 6B of Pretty Little Liars, Hanna will be engaged.  Unfortunately for Haleb fans, she isn’t engaged to Caleb.  However, Ashley is ready to explore Hanna's new storyline.

Ashley Benson told TVLine “I’m excited for her to have this new chapter in her life”.  Ashley is ready for the change of pace that these new developments will bring to the show.

Ashley was a little disappointed that Hanna isn’t a mother after the five year time jump.  In the video of the first four minutes of episode 6x11 “Of Late I Think of Rosewood”, it looked like Hanna had a kid.  It turned out Hanna was only watching the toddler until the kid’s mother returned.  “I was so excited when I first read that scene.  When I read on and realized it wasn’t hers, I was like, ‘No!'” Ashley said.

Lucy Hale, Aria on PLL, shows off her fishing skills in this OTF/“On The Fly” video.  Lucy played the Let’s Go Fishin’ game and tried to catch as many toy fish as she could with a tiny fishing pole.

Aisha Dee (Chasing Life), Noah Reid (Kevin From Work), Matt Murray (Kevin From Work) and Sherri Saum (The Fosters) also appear in the video to test their fishing skills.

PLL Season 6B Spoilers: 5 Years Forward Promo Video

ABC Family has released a new promo video of PLL season 6B showing what we can expect to see when Pretty Little Liars returns for episode 6x11 in January.  The video contains tons of spoilers about the Liars and what they are going through after the five year time jump.

In the video, we see Charlotte DiLaurentis (CeCe Drake) ask Alison if she thinks the Liars are still upset with her.

Alison wants the Liars to tell the court that they aren’t afraid of Charlotte (CeCe), but the Lairs aren’t too happy with Alison asking them to lie about their feelings.  Spencer says she thought lying for Alison again wouldn’t matter, but it did. 

It looks like Hanna has an engagement ring on.  And Haleb is over, at least for now.  We see Hanna kissing a new guy.
