In case you haven’t been glued to social media lately, we wanted to point out something that we’ve been noticing — for some reason Lucy Hale is getting the cold shoulder from her Pretty Little Liars cast mates.
Well, three of them in particular – Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, and Troian Bellisario, who with Lucy, make up the ‘core four’ female cast. Up until now, if something good happened to one of them, the rest of them would be all over it on Twitter and Instagram, offering congratulations and promoting the side projects of their costars. But when Lucy’s album Road Between dropped, there was nary a peep out of anyone but Lucy. The album was released on June 3rd, but she’s been promoting it for months, with close to thirty posts on her own page.
Meanwhile, Shay, Ashley, and Troian aren’t even including Lucy in their group pictures anymore, so what gives? They’ve been posing together at Pretty Little Liar events, with Lucy so notably absent that fans have been asking about it in the comment sections. Here’s a shot from Shay’s Instagram feed, taken two weeks ago at the PLL 100th episode party, which Lucy almost certainly attended:
Here’s another, from a week ago, posted by Ashley with the caption: ’3 girls. One mystery machine’, with Shay and Troian tagged.
The only one of the three who still occasionally references Lucy in her posts is Troian, but even she has a photo of the threesome from two months ago, prompting commenters to ask ‘where is Aria’, and even one to start the hashtag #pllhateslucyhale.
For her part, Lucy’s been posting about PLL hardly at all, preferring to put up photos of herself with people not related to the show, or continuing to plug her album. Very strange, no?
And it looks like our friends over at Blind Gossip might have noticed the same thing, because they put up a post about members of an ensemble TV show who haven’t been supportive of a fellow cast member who’s recently had success in a non-acting venture. They say it has to do with jealousy, and I’ll be sitting patiently right here until we get more information.
