Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Backup Dan"
2/7/2012 3:31 PM
The only thing that bothered me about "Lola" was her choice in shoes. As someone who's worked as a server and for catering events, there's NO way in hell you'd wear a pair of heels like hers to any job. Seriously, what was wardrobe thinking?
The dowry excuse wasn't a big deal to me - I like how it came between C and B. The theme of Chuck treating Blair like property has been a consistent one over the years, so it was appropriate for B to not want C to "buy" her out the mess with Louis. I had a harder time with the pact from God from the week before - though I would have liked that plot device better if it had stemmed from the loss of her child combined with the almost-demise of Chuck. More of a multiple trauma induced anxiety kinda thing, y'know? Anyway, the dowry clause is obviously an outdated yet traditional practice, and I could easily see Louis and his Mama gleefully dusting it off to get what they want from Blair.
Can't wait for more lovely Dair BFFing next week! ^_^
Gossip Girl Dair Tribute Video Contest Finalists: Watch, Vote Now!
11/25/2011 11:49 AM
Loved all of them, but #3 got my vote (though I would also have liked to vote for #5 - great song, and it had that fantastic "Inside" kiss! *swoon*).
Great job, vidders! :)
Gossip Girl Spoilers: Save the Royal Wedding Date!
11/2/2011 10:39 AM
I am *so* excited for this EPIC episode! Definitely going to have an elegant GG viewer party that night to mirror the wedding - complete with prosecco and sparkly, wedding-appropriate headbands, lol! ^_^
As for B's kissing buddy - I'm hoping it's Chuck, just so she can slap closed their fairytale door for good. After re-watching all of last season this past week, and seeing how damaged and unhealthy their relationship truly is, I'm firmly on Team Dair.
Michelle Trachtenberg: Returning to Gossip Girl For Major Story Arc!
11/2/2011 10:31 AM
Well, Georgina doesn't exactly know the *extent* of Ivy's secrets - she just knows that she wasn't on anti-depressants and that the suicide attempt was bogus. She does not make any mention of knowing that Charlie isn't Serena's cousin or that she's an actress, etc.
Regardless, I'm excited to see G return! She looked *stunning* in last season's finale, and she never fails to add a bit of spice to the show.
Gossip Girl Video Contest: Create the Best Tribute to Dair!
10/27/2011 6:14 PM
Don't know why various shippers are getting their panties in a twist - this vid contest is for fun! And there will be more contests so every ship gets its time in the spotlight.
Honestly - I like Chair AND Dair. May the best man win! ;)
Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Fasting and the Furious"
10/27/2011 3:16 PM
The Therapist Coincidence - I think the only reason why Louis contacted Eliza is because he read about her and Chuck on Gossip Girl. When Blair enters her bedroom at the end of the episode, Louis has the blast about Chuck and Eliza open right in front of him.
Diana - I wouldn't be surprised if she's Chuck's mom. True, Elizabeth was hanging on to the necklace, but who knows why? Maybe wishing for things that never came to pass, maybe feeling regretful over other aspects of her life, maybe as a memento of her brief love affair with Jack - we don't know yet, and because of that, we can't be 100% that she's Chuck's mom. Diana could be a lot of other things, too, and I'm eager to find out which role is hers!
Bart's File - I don't think Bart kept a file on himself. Perhaps Lily arranged it for personal reasons, but my bet is that Chuck compiled it last season when he was searching for clues about his father's business dealings and past. We know he still works with the PI, Andrew Tyler, so it's not that big a stretch to assume Chuck asked him for information. Keeping it in the family safe would make sense to him, I imagine.
As for the rest of the episode - loved it. I've been loving this whole season so far! Just when things start to feel disjointed or over-the-top or whatever, we're slapped with another juicy plot twist. I'm a fan of both Chair and Dair (though definitely crushing harder on the Dair side - they feel so fated!!), and I even like Louis. He's cute and obviously cares so much for B - if only he'd come along sooner. I'm intrigued at the thought of him getting his scheme on, and I really can't wait to see how therapy works for Chuck!
Definitely excited for the coming weeks. :D
Gossip Girl Spoilers: Serena's Season Finale Suitor is ...
5/13/2009 10:07 AM
I have this terrible feeling that Chuck's going to say ILY, but then tells B he can't be with her - or maybe vice versa! - because of whatever the GG blast reveals.
That way, Chair fans will still "be rewarded for their patience" as various spoilerish news promised, but it will come with a twisty, dark price.
Cue next season's angsty heartache!
Extended Promo: "The Goodbye Gossip Girl"
5/12/2009 11:05 PM
I definitely agree - re: the GG blast having something to do with B and C (though it's likely about all of them to some degree or another, judging by the chaos that's supposed to ensue). When J tells B about her "gossip being too juicy to wait", the edit flashes to Chuck. When Blair is yelling at Serena, Chuck isn't just walking away, he's *stalking* away, as in pissed or upset. Something obviously goes down badly between them, which leads Blair to her final "tell me you love me" plea.
Perhaps J spills the beans about Chuck and Vanessa?
Perhaps someone finally has details about what went down between Blair and Uncle Jack on NYE?!
Could the Carter/Serena secret also be exposed?
Either way, I'm all about this upcoming Sunday!
CANNOT. FREAKIN. WAIT!!! XD
Gossip Girl Clips From "Valley Girls"
5/11/2009 3:01 PM
THANK you, Maya - that's pretty much exactly what I was going to say. This has nothing to do with "stupid writers" or "making the fans happy with a rushed break-up" - this was PLANNED and EXECUTED perfectly. Blair needed something comforting and familiar after her future was thrown into WTF-land, and Nate fit the bill perfectly. She probably would have preferred Chuck, but he was obviously too busy trying to woo Elle (in an effort to forget Blair, stay out of her life, and thereby spare her any further pain, imo).
She still LOVES Chuck, obviously, so to continue with Nate would have been wrong - good for you for realizing that, B! As she so eloquently puts it: Nate was her highshool love, and highschool is over. For me, this was exactly the kind of gentle, bittersweet B/N closure I was looking for.
The only part of the VG storyline I liked was RYAN HANSEN! He was hilarious, as usual. Too bad Josh n' Steph couldn't have added him to the current cast - I think he's totally wasted in the (possible) spin-off.

MissGossip - iirc, the "Valley Girls" episode is the one detailing Lily's backstory.
Kristen Bell to Guest Star on Gossip Girl?
4/29/2009 11:52 AM
I love Kristen - seeing her on GG at some point in the future would be absolutely awesome. ^_^
Gossip Girl Spinoff Casting Notes
3/9/2009 11:58 AM
I LOVED Hansen as Dick Casablancas - he was one of the best characters on Veronica Mars!!
I was already intrigued by the previous spin-off casting info, now I'm *definitely* going to be watching! :D
New Gossip Girl Previews For Upcoming Episodes
2/14/2009 9:05 PM
First: don't worry, michelle a. - that scene with Chuck and Serena is from an earlier episode.
Second: I agree with the Nelly Yuki haters - what a massive biznatch! I hope Blair gets some sweet, SWEET revenge on that traitor.
Third: Was I the only one who saw Carter (unless my eyes are starting to fade in my old age) getting all cozy with Blair in that restaurant scene?! Hand on her arm, then going for her thigh? WTF?! EWWWW! (Not Sebastien, of course, just his character, heh.)
Fourth: I heart Dorota! ^_^
Krysten Ritter Cast as Lily's Sister in Gossip Girl Spinoff
2/7/2009 1:34 AM
Kristen Bell would be MY first choice! Amanda Seyfried would be acceptable, too - love 'em both! Krysten was cute as Gia on VM, so I think she'll do a wonderful job with this role.
I can't believe that I'm starting to actually get *interested* in this possible spin-off...amazing!
A Winter Kiss
2/3/2009 3:26 PM
Even the massive Chair-shipper in me can't deny how romantic this looks - can't *wait* to see how this scene unfolds!!
Gossip Girl Spoilers: Joining Forces with the Enemy
1/21/2009 10:48 AM
The Rufly baby would be approx. 20, not 16.
My first thought was Georgina was going to help with the teacher, too, but Rachel will be gone in a few episodes - and honestly, Blair should be able to get rid of the beeotch on her own. So that leaves the nanny plot, Serena's similarities to Anne Hathaway, and perhaps something to do with the fallout from Jack. Maybe the Rufly baby is an evil gold digger, and Georgie will help with that? So many possibilities, not enough juicy promos...

EWWW! Ditch the fur, Penn!! Wearing the skins of tortured animals is NOT fashionable!
Gossip Girl Round Table: "You've Got Yale!"
1/20/2009 5:05 PM
1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
Once again, we have another episode with great dialogue, making it difficult to choose just one quote. Ultimately, I'd have to go with the entire back and forth between Chuck and Lily as they discuss the ways to get rid of Jack, tied with everything Eric said. He was really funny this week - and should have a larger role in future eps.
2. Did you like the mostly lighter feel of this episode?
Yes. It's nice to finally focus on something *other* than the darker subjects from previous episodes. Definitely felt like I could breathe during this one - like spring is on the horizon for everyone.
3. Most hard to believe Yale plot development: Blair's chances threatened by one B; Students learning of their fate via text message; Serena getting in period?
Serena getting in, period.
4. Nate letting Vanessa buy the opera tickets when he owns a box: Sweet or stupid?
Sweet - although in all fairness, he didn't "let" her buy the tickets, V bought them before he could invite her to his family's box. He "let" her take him to the opera, which was cute. I'm not a big fan of the pair, but it was nice to see at least *one* couple enjoying relationship bliss for a change...
5. Is Chuck Bass the best character on television?
Absolutely, with Blair a near second. The entire GG cast is really quite remarkable - they managed to both attract and keep *my* attention, which is a feat in and of itself. I don't really watch much television...
BONUS QUESTION: What's in store for Rachel and Blair - and Rachel and Dan?
I hope Blair goes for Rachel's throat - especially when she discovers that Dan's hot for teacher. I would LOVE to see Blair and Serena team up for a big take down of both Humphrey and Carr!! :D

The teacher is cute, but B and S are *gorgeous* - no contest, imo. ;)

I agree, Kellerz - not knowing what happened on NYE has been making me crazy for weeks! I'm really hoping we get *some* kind of clarification on that.
I'm also hoping for something Chair related, but will totally understand if the C/B interaction is minimal. I would also like to see at least one Jack/Blair scene - perhaps a flashback to NYE, or a final confrontation between the two before he leaves?
Is tonight where we get to see Nate and Vanessa at the opera? I can't wait to see how their date goes. (Guess it's true about absence making the heart grow fonder - we haven't seen much of them in recent weeks, and I've actually started to miss them - go figure!)
Gossip Girl TV Scheduling Note
1/19/2009 10:52 AM
I don't mind repeats every now and then - especially when my DVR eats an episode instead of recording it properly. Like it did with 2x13. So BOO for no new ep, YAY for having the opportunity to add it back into repeat-viewing rotation! ;)
Josh Schwartz Speaks on Gossip Girl Spinoff, Chair
1/17/2009 11:05 AM
First off, it's not all the back n' forth Chair drama that's getting tired, it's all the complaining about needing them to get together ASAP that is. Get a clue, people - if C and B hooked up and became the fairytale couple everyone's grousing about, THAT'S what would cause fans to lose interest. It's the drama that keeps Chair ALIVE and EXCITING! As far as I'm concerned, Josh and Stephanie can keep Chuck and Blair fighting and making up for as many epsiodes as they'd like - I'll be sure to watch EVERY SINGLE DELICIOUS MOMENT.
As for the spin-off, does it have its own team of writers? I don't want GG to suffer in ANY WAY, but especially creativity-wise. If energy/ideas are siphoned off GG and fed into this new Lily prequel, I will not be a happy camper. If there's NO interference with GG, I *might* give it a chance...

Wow - love her coat and bag. Such a different look for S's character!

I feel cold just looking at them! *shivers*
Silly, adorable girls - put on some gloves and warmer coats!
