Model/actress/author Cara Delevingne continues making major strides towards overtaking Papi and Shane as The Chart’s most active and notorious hub. The Daily Mail, a bastion of journalistic integrity, made a bold move this morning when they declared that Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson “confirmed” their romance by “passionately kissing” in London’s Heathrow Airport.

“The pair first set tongues wagging in April,” reported The Daily Mail, “When they stepped out hand-in-hand during what looked like a double date in NYC.” Honestly, “tongues wagging” is a default facial mode for lesbians, but it’s true that we’ve had a little something extra to talk about for several months now. I MEAN:

“Cara is so entertaining in relationships,” said noted Vapid Fluff Editor Stef Schwartz, who unfortunately was unavailable to report directly on this event today due to a prior engagement at her soon-to-be-vacated childhood home in New Jersey. “Like, wasted with Michelle Rodriguez, being really pretty with Annie Clark, makin out w Paris Jackson while Macaulay Culkin watches.”

“People have been speculating for MONTHS,” added body language expert Stef Schwartz. “So I am pleased to have some confirmation. I hope Macaulay Culkin was around to bemusedly witness this blessed event.”

Actress and Sweet Tarts Gummies fan Ashley Benson has been notoriously homoerotic for the entirety of her career, including a multi-year bout of sexual tension with her Pretty Little Liars co-star Shay Mitchell, who is not necessarily heterosexual. Ashley’s Pretty Little Liars character, Hannah, was involved in an extensive romance with male lesbian heartthrob Caleb. She wished us all a Happy Pride in June. “She’s been vibing gay forever,” said noted Pretty Little Liars expert Heather Hogan.

Speaking of Caleb, Ashley was wearing a “C” necklace, which one can only logically determine stands for “Cara.” After so many months of canoodling and supporting each other, it is our supreme honor and privilege to celebrate not only this relationship, but the fact that Ashley Benson likes girls, which is solid evidence for our ongoing hypothesis, “everyone is gay.”

  1. Well this was entertaining.

    I appreciated the update on noted Vapid Fluff Editor and body language expert (not to mention notorious Scorpio) Stef.

  2. “Honestly, “tongues wagging” is a default facial mode for lesbians”

    This is so true ! I myself am a cunning linguist.

  3. This news makes me happy! Hanna was my favourite PLL and I miss Booradleyvancullen and pink drinks.

  4. Important question for Heather: do you think Ashley was just trying to throw everyone off the scent when she made those sus comments about how Emily should hook up with a guy on PLL?

  5. Ha! I knew there was a reason Hanna was always my favorite PLL.

    Also bless this website for always bringing us the most important breaking news.

  6. Lovely!

    Also Cara is killing the dating game, she’d be major if an Alice “The Chart” look alike was made for famous women.

      • she has made some… questionable decisions to be sure, i recall the braids you’re talking about. i would not necessarily conflate reporting fluff news with endorsing a human being.

          • she also did that shit at burning man last year because of course she did. i wonder if anyone in her circle ever tells her if her ideas are bad.

  7. Also, as someone who spent an entire relationship wearing a necklace of my girlfriend’s initial, BARF you guys.

  8. Seems i’m the only one not taking this seriously. Doesn’t Ashley Benson have a boyfriend? I mean if you check her Instagram account, they are still dating. So i don’t know what to make with this news. But yaaay! Still love two women kissing. Lol

      • Well, that could make sense. But I mean i don’t know of anyone who is in or has been in an open polyamorus relationship. So it’s not the first thing to come to mind for me.

        • i actually do know of queer celebrities we cover regularly on this very site who are polyamorous but not public about it so we respectfully do not make it our business to blow up their spot! it’s a thing. sounds like it’s probably not a thing in this case though?

      • @gem-2 holy crap. I just checked. The pictures are gone. She has deleted the pictures. I’m serious, as of weeks ago, she still had lots of pictures of that guy and declaring her love for him.
        Ashley and Cara, Ashley and Cara, Ashley and Cara, Ashley and Cara

        • I just wanted to say that I really appreciate both of you guys’ in depth research on the matter.

  9. Just came here a year later to applaud the title. “Kisses! – A” still gets me! Hahaha
