Jack of all trades James Franco is dating Ashley Benson of ABC Family’s hit show “Pretty Little Liars”.

The New York Post has spotted the pair together on the East Coast near NYU (is he teaching there too?) as well as in Los Angeles holding hands on a haunted hay ride.

So the next time Ashley stumbles out of The Chateau Marmont, she might have Oscar-nominated company.

The New Kids Are Taking Over The Chateau Marmont – Lucy Hale and Ashley Benson, ‘Pretty Little Liars’

The Chateau Marmont

Pretty Little Liars is a show that I probably would not watch by myself. Okay, maybe I might watch it, but it would not be nearly as much fun.Thankfully I have a tween daughter to chat with about all the ridiculous goings on in Rosewood.

Oh Ashley Benson…that’s gonna leave a bruise.

Having faithfully followed the off screen exploits of the original 90210 cast, (here is where I vigorously rock my Granny chair and sigh about time flying) I was amused by the paparazzi photos of pretty little liars, Lucy Hale and Amber Benson leaving The Chateau Marmont.

If you are unaware of the infamy surrounding this hotel to the stars, be prepared to fall down a Google rabbit hole, it is a rich and sometimes sordid history indeed. Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere is an interesting take on fame that takes place at The Chateau where Jim Belushi died and Lindsay Lohan was recently evicted. Johnny Depp also has quite the history of camping out at The Chateau over the years, whether it was with Kate Moss, Winona Ryder…whomever.

If the pictures weren’t enough to make my gossip senses tingle, Lucy Hale’s recently exed boyfriend actor Chris Zylka was busy sub-tweeting about their break up. “Don’t have a girlfriend. She decided she was too good.”

For now, we are along way from the coke-fueled, complete and utter insanity of the original 90210 crew. Can you imagine if Ashley Hamilton had twitter during his marriage to Shannen Doherty?

Lucy Hale

I’ve rooted for Lucy Hale from American Junior (short-lived Idol for the young teen set) to Privileged. So let’s hope she doesn’t wind up on late night infomercials shilling for an online university.
