Recapping “Gossip Girl”: The Goodbye Gossip Girl

Our usual “Gossip Girl” recapper, Sara B., is off this week, so Simcha stepped in to analyze the season finale’s style.

Finale, it has happened to me! Last night was the last episode of “Gossip Girl.” As if the writing hasn’t already gotten patchy (honestly, if “GG” was hackable, why wouldn’t you delete the rumors you didn’t want published?), now they’re heading into the dreaded college years. Sigh. On the upside, the death knell was the hot jam “Zero” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But while the teens may have graduated high school, there were some major fashion fails on the show. Like Serena lazily tacking her tassel into her hair. WTF? So, let’s rich bitch it up together, shall we?

Bravo’s “NYC Prep” A Lot More Boring Than “Gossip Girl”

Bravo decided to combine “Gossip Girl” and “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and the result is “NYC Prep.” On this reality show, which premieres June 23, cameras will follow five wealthy teens as they navigate Manhattan’s social scene, shop, apply for college, and work on charity events. They lead lives unfamiliar to most New York kids — or adults, for that matter — despite Bravo’s claims to the contrary. What will be familiar to you are the I’m-not-in-the-cool-crowd feeling you had in high school because your parents didn’t consider how their features would mesh into one face and didn’t see fit to replace your silver spoon with a Black AmEx. “Gossip Girl” is fun because it’s fiction, and the characters, although teens, deal with adult issues. I don’t think “Gossip Girl” would have been a success if we had to watch Jenny Humphrey sketching and sewing her designs or Blair Waldorf filling out her Yale application. “The Real Housewives” is entertaining because it provides all the fun of gossiping without the guilt. “NYC Prep” will have to bridge the gap between making teen life entertaining to adults and ensuring the kids don’t become too adult-like in order for this show to be successful. And Bravo has to get these kids to stop ending every statement with an inflec-tion? Keep reading »

Recapping “Gossip Girl”: Valley Girls (The Spin-Off That’ll Never Happen)

Last night, “Gossip Girl” was awesome fun! It was weirdly sentimental, and sweet, and No Doubt was there covering Adam and the Ants, and Brittany Snow actually charmed my dang pants off with her turn as Young Lily, and the ‘80s fashion was ADORBZ, and they played Men Without Hats, and there were actual nice parallels between the dual storylines! I feel like someone sat the writers down and gave them a talking-to. Keep reading »

“Gossip Girl” Spinoff Is Canceled, Kaput, Finito

“Gossip Girl” will give you a tempting taste of Lily van der Woodsen’s life in L.A.’s fast lane when it flashes back to the ’80s next Monday, but you’ll never be able to satisfy that craving because the show has been canceled. “Valley Girls” starred Brittany Snow as a young Lily, whose past will now remain a secret. I’m kind of bummed because I’ve liked Brittany Snow since she starred as Meg Pryor on NBC’s “American Dreams.” I guess I’ll have to catch her in “Black Water Transit,” a crime drama set to be released this year.

The Singing Gossip Girls

We kind of hate it when starlets decide they don’t want to limit themselves to acting. Being famous for one thing isn’t enough. Tthey have to be actresses-singers-songwriters-models-writers-producers. In addition to Ed Westwick, who has a band called The Filthy Youth, two more “Gossip Girl” cast members are adding “singer” to their resume. Leighton Meester and Taylor Momsen have signed record deals. A couple tracks Leighton has been working on have leaked, and a video of Taylor performing earlier this week hit YouTube. But are they any good? Keep reading »
