Should Schools Ban Kids From Going On Reality TV Shows?

Oh, Lauren Conrad, your demented life could have turned out differently if only your high school back in Laguna Beach, CA, had had the presence of mind to ban kids from starring on reality TV. The New York Times didn't actually get to the bottom of whether any of the New…

YA Novels And Teen Series You’ll Heart

There's lots of literary esteem to be held for classic coming-of-age stories like Little Women or Jane Eyre. And while The Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High may not qualify for a place in the cannon of American literature, there's no denying the iconic impact of the YA series you grew up with. If you…

“Gossip Girl” Author To Pen Adult Novels

Gossip Girl author Cecily von Ziegesar reminded us of how petty and jealous high schoolers can be. Now, she's tackling college campus life in a series of adult novels, but she's not taking Blair Waldorf or any other familiar character back to school, despite what some have written. Von Ziegesar has created a…

Costume Designers Dish About Chuck Bass and Don Draper

“To me, to pick the right blouse with the right sensibility feels in some ways like art. I’m an artist, but I’m painting with clothes.”That's totally the sort of obtuse thing Karl Lagerfeld would say, but it's actually a quote from Eric Daman, the costume designer for "Gossip Girl." Good, because we'd expect nothing le…

“NYC Prep” Kids Live Fabulously And Don’t Apologize For Being Privileged

Last night, I got a sneak peek of Bravo's upcoming show "NYC Prep," and heard a little about the lives of the rich and young in a Q&A with the cast. Man, is this show going to be juicy.

Attack Of The Crazy Headbands!

Headbands, headbands, headbands. From thin and satiny to chunky and plastic, this popular accessory seems to be taking over the world. While a pretty headband can add a nice touch to a cute outfit, some of the styles out there are a little too much. Meet the Extreme Headband. It includes head wear that's bursting…

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 rumor…

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…

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…

“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…

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.

Recapping “Gossip Girl”: The Wrath Of Con

OMFG this episode was actually F-U-N in spots! Can you believe it? Neither can I! Well, don’t worry. I’m sure next week’s episode will be supreme crossover lameness to pimp the new Lily-is-young-in-the-‘80s series. But today it’s still 2009, and I’m still basking in the afterglow of a sorta-good episode. To review: Serena’s ugstown boyfriend…

The “Gossip Girl” Tour Of NYC, Plus Other TV Tours We’d Like To Take

OMG! As we told you last week, for $40 dollars you can take a “Gossip Girl” tour of New York’s Upper East Side, the glitzy concrete playground of Blair, Serena, et al. Offered by On Location tours, purveyors of the mega-popular “Sex and the City” tour, this one will take you past the Palace…

Recapping “Gossip Girl”: Southern Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Last night paired up Blair and Chuck once again as a duo willing to stoop low to achieve a high goal: save their girl Serena from heartbreak at the hands of a sociopath. Only this time, their route actually finds them seeking help from last season’s worst character, Georgina. In fact, I was so enraged…

See Where The Gossip Girls Live And Shop

It was only a matter of time before people started trying to make money off of "Gossip Girl." A New York City company that hosts "Sex and the City" bus tours has added a "Gossip Girl" outing to its offerings. For $40, you can visit the Palace Hotel, see the mansion where Lily…

Recapping “Gossip Girl”: Seder Anything

After an excruciating hiatus, “Gossip Girl” is back! On last night's episode, Passover was in the air, and Blair's Jewish stepdad was back onscreen for Seder in the latest installment of your favorite meaningless teen dramedy. Also, other things happened.

“Gossip Girl” Spinoff Looks A Lot Like “That ’80s Show”

A poster for the "Gossip Girl"-spinoff "Valley Girls" has been released, and it doesn't make us at all excited for the show. Instead, it reinforces the poor casting of Brittany Snow as the young Lily van der Woodsen. [Videogum]…

Recapping “Gossip Girl”: Remains Of The J

OMG! Spoiler alert, for those of you who have yet to review your DVR’d "Gossip Girl" from last night: this episode didn’t completely suck! I know, right? Amazing! Let’s dive right into it. First up: did they or didn’t they? Meaning Blair and Nate, of course. Turns out they didn’t, although Blair has been bringing…
