Frisky Rant: You’ve Jumped The Shark, “Gossip Girl”!

Snooze, the last few episodes of “Gossip Girl” have been boring me. Maybe I just hate Jenny’s mullet so much that it’s hard for me to want to watch this, but lately I just feel as if the show is selling itself short.

First of all, where is Nate? When in doubt or short of material, throw in eye candy. And “man bangs” makes for some good eye candy. Do not throw in, however, a creepy artist type.

In addition, Aaron has that gross, sparse pubic hair goatee. If he’s not hot and he’s clearly still banging models, why is Serena still lusting after him? She may be annoying, but she can do way better than Aaron Rose. And nobody would go to Central Park in their nightie! Franly, no high schooler I know would even wear that to sleep.
