The Gossip Girl folks are certainly working hard to get us all hot and bothered about the show’s upcoming episodes, but they’re also doing a really good job of annoying us. Not only did The CW move the show’s air day and time from Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST to Mondays at 8 p.m. EST, but none of the new episodes will be available on CWTV.com. It looks like so many of us watch streaming episodes on The CW’s website that they’ve decided it would be better (read: generate more money) if they only allowed the purchase of episodes on iTunes. It looks like I’ll have to clear my calendar every Monday so I get home in time to hear those glorious words, “xoxo, Gossip Girl.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
Last night when we were walking home, we came across a wall of posters advertising the return of Gossip Girl. Guess that Keep reading »
Check out the new print ad for Gossip Girl. I’m not entirely convinced this particular one is real, because I saw a similar version in my Us Weekly yesterday that only said “OMG” not “OMFG”, but whatever, I can’t find that one online. And this one has CHUCK, who’s hot. [Jossip] Keep reading »
Ever since Gossip Girl Serena van der Woodsen sexily draped herself over a pool table in a black studded Catherine Malandrino shift dress while on her first date with the loveable Dan Humphrey, I had to stop and reassess my opinion of the mini dress as date wear. Off to Bloomingdales I went where I purchased my first ever mini dress, which had me asking: â€˜where have you been all my lifeâ€™ the second I slipped it on.
The magic of a mini dress, like the one worn by Serena, is that it strikes the perfect balance between revealing and reserved. The daring length is countered by the absence of cleavage and an ultra formfitting silhouette for a look that still leaves much to be desired. I wouldnâ€™t recommend this look if youâ€™re, say, going bowling, but for a dinner date or drinks, whip it out and work it. Keep reading »
The young guys of Gossip Girl, the hit CW show about Manhattanâ€™s elite teens, are so sexy they make us feel like cougars. The barely legal boys, Penn Badgley (nice guy Dan), Chace Crawford (tortured prepster Nate), and Ed Westwick (bad-boy Chuck), are getting even closer than the steamy scripts permit in this monthâ€™s Out magazine. Itâ€™s a three for the price of one issue, since the gay menâ€™s mag has found a way to fit them all into one frame and made the Gossip Guys cover boys with a full spread inside. The three were photographed wrestling, playing with Nerf guns, and crossing swords — not like that, you pervs! We’re talking fencing here! Whether or not theyâ€™re gay, straight, or taken (Crawford has been linked to country star Carrie Underwood), we can all get some hot prep school boy action without having to wait until Wednesday’s episode. Now thatâ€™s something we can all get behind. [Out Magazine] Keep reading »
Saying that last night’s episode of Gossip Girl was drama-filled is like declaring that shoes will get wet when it rains. Duh. Along with the Serena/Blair pregnancy scare and Nate and Chuck duking it out, there was the somewhat less climactic storyline in which Dan says, “I love you” to Serena. The first time he says it is when he wants to show support in case she’s carrying a little Dan. But he really means it and wants her to know that it isn’t solely because of this. He spends the rest of the episode trying to tell her again.
The interesting part of this story is not that they exchange those three words, but that they do it after they have sex! Maybe things have changed since we were in high school, but back then, couples “went out” for months and months, said “I love you,” and then did the deed. Of course the order may have changed once college and the real world arrived, but high school sex is supposed to be a little more innocent. Maybe wearing Chanel and being driven around in a Town Car really do make you grow up faster. [The CW] Keep reading »
