The moms of Pretty Little Liars are aloof about their daughter’s drama in their perfect little town of Rosewood.
Pretty Little Liars holds many secrets and the pretty girls, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily are the main four friends. The girl’s secrets have been surfacing since Alison who is the group’s Queen Bee disappeared. Pretty Little Liars has the girls deciding to take matters into their own hands against the mysterious stranger who is tormenting them. The moms who didn’t have their first scene together until season six include; Laura Leighton (Ashley Marin), Lesley Fera (Veronica Hastings), Nia Peeples (Pam Fields), and Holly Marie Combs (Ella Montgomery). None of them seem to realize that their daughters are being tormented by this anonymous psycho. Nia Peeples who is Emily’s mom shared, “Oh yeah. Pam is the stay-at-home, I’m-there-for-my-daughter-24/7, this-is-my-primary-reason-for-existence, and yet she knows nothing!”
The moms of Pretty Little Liars had in a prior interview with Cosmopolitan and shared some of their parenting thoughts. The ladies who portray the mothers of the girls of Pretty Little Liars are of course, completely different women in real life. When asked if they felt parental towards their on-screen daughter in real life Laura Leighton who plays Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) mom said, “I do have moments of feeling parental toward Ashley because she reminds me of one of my own daughters very much, but I also know that nobody wants another person telling them what they think or what to do. And so the relationship I need to have is, we’re work friends.”
Lesly Fera plays Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) mom said, “I don’t feel parental, per se. We are much more equal peers. We’re mostly friends. She’s got her act together, so I really never feel the need to step in or try to advise her because she’s got a great head on her shoulders. She’s very much an old soul.”
Nia Peeples who is Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) mom said, “Shay is so savvy and she owns what she wants. Period. And me, at 53, I’m still trying to get there. All the girls are a lot more savvy than I was when I was on a show at 22, you know? And Shay is one of those girls who is like, I am a brand and I’m going to own that.”
Holly Marie Combs who plays Aria’s (Lucy Hale) mom said, “Gosh, it’s so much tougher for this generation. Growing up in any sort of spotlight is difficult. Everything is magnified. But now with incredibly invasive paparazzi tactics, it is tenfold for them — in addition to the requirement of promoting themselves and their projects on social media. The demand is extreme. It’s almost like a second job really.” Are you a fan of the moms of Pretty Little Liars?
