Kristin Dos Santos' weekly Q&A on E! Online has some interesting Gossip Girl spoilers and news items. Tell us what you make of the following ...
Q: Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl! Please dish now!
A: As you know, young Lily van der Woodsen and Rufus Humphrey were adorable and in love, but they didn't end up together. Why? The CW declined to comment, and Warner Brothers insists "There is nothing to confirm," but I'm told ... I’m told there is a Gossip Girl webisode series in the works that will explain what really happened to Lily and Rufus when they were 19, and we'll see the ramifications in the present day. From what I can tell it has to do with Lily's time in the sanitorium, but her confinement bears no resemblance to the reason for Eric van der Woodsen's institutionalization. If Lily was crazy back then, it was only because of hormones and hunger. Thoughts?
Q: What can you tell us about the Gossip Girl death. Is it Bart?
A: That's not a bad guess! Examine these two interesting facts:- Something clears the way for a Lily and Rufus reunion.
- Jack Bass (30-year-old brother of Bart) comes into the picture and tries to take over the company.
By the way, I'm told that the funeral episode, "O Brother, Where Bart Thou," which airs December 8, is one of the best episodes of the series and will leave you sobbing.
Q: On Gossip Girl, who is the new hot teacher? And who will she hook up with?
A: They still haven't cast her. (Lauren Graham, Rebecca Romijn, send your resumes!) But I'm told she will be a significant part and will be young, so she likely will be sinking her cougar claws into some hot young boy toy on the Upper East Side.
Q: Do you know where I can get Serena's outfit from the Thanksgiving episode of Gossip Girl?
A: I don't, and if I did I wouldn't tell you, mostly because no one outside of Blake Lively can pull off a skirt that short!
