man, sorry, didn't mean to sound so bitchy up there. Someone just jumped the gun on a resemblance btw Ms. Carr and Lux's mom, and I'm just fed up with the LU bashing I've been seeing by GG fans. I am sorry I was snappy. peace.

WRONG - Miss Carr's actress is NNNOOOTTT on Life UneXpected. Instead, it's a much better actress named Shiri Appleby, playing Cate Cassidy, Lux's birthmom on LU. Shiri played main character Liz on Roswell, a fabulous show that ran 7-10 years ago. She's since done stints on ER and a bunch of other quality television. Laura Breckenridge played Ms. Rachel Carr last season on GG.
Please, don't make up reasons to hate Life UneXpected. LU has nothing to do with GG's long hiatus. The CW say they didn't want the multiple long breaks they had last year, as that killed the ratings, and pissed off a lot of fans. Instead, one single agonizing break, and then episodes every week until season's end. LU is just filling part of the gap, not the cause of it. In fact, LU is only going to do half of its run in GG's vacant slot, and the other half in another vacant timeslot. If anything, those of us who are excited about LU should be pissed about that time switch.
Since there is no way that we can have GG for three months, isn't is nice that we can have something that looks to be good, even maybe great, to help while away the hours???
More on topic, love Willa Holland's character. Honestly, she was both more sane and more acting her age than Jenny has since the first season. Plus, Willa is gorgeous, and doesn't try to look like a horror actress...
What Did You Think of "The Debarted"?
12/8/2009 3:03 PM
Anyone else get the impression that Chuck was wondering if his "mother" was another ghost haunting him? When he looked back at the car, almost as though he wanted to ask Blair if she saw the already-placed yellow roses on Bart's grave (I assume he asked B to wait in the car, I can't imagine her leaving him more alone).
Also, it seems clear to me that it was Chuck's guilt haunting him, and not Bart himself. Bart had seemed to be trying his best (if too little too late) to be a better man in the year leading up to his death, and had applauded the maturity he saw in Chuck when he & B got together the first time. Lily may have been killing that spark of goodness in him right before his death though.
Speaking of Lily, I'm not convinced she was actually cheating on Rufus with S&E's dad. However, secrets and lies are so deeply ingrained in her makeup, that even something innocent like trying to convince Mr. VdW to reconnect with S would be something Lily would think she needs to hide. And how cold was Lily to forget that it was the anniversary of Bart's death! She's had no problem enjoying the fruits of widowhood (that gorgeous apartment, billions of dollars, control of a major corporation, and all the prestige attendant on those things), yet had the accident happened even a day later she would have been entitled to little if nothing. She is a selfish, cold, calculating bitch most of the time, and I have grave doubts that even Rufus' love will save her from herself.
Promo For First 2010 Gossip Girl Episode(s)
12/8/2009 2:16 PM
I am as disappointed and upset about the 3 month wait as all of you, but I really hope you don't boycott Life Unexpected because of it. I've been looking forward to that new show since I saw the first promos/sneak peeks back in the summer. It had nothing to do with GG's long hiatus. From what I've been reading (at this and other spoiler/news sites), the showrunners and the networks didn't want a repeat of last year's problems - long break over Christmas, couple of episodes, another six week break, and then push to the end. Each time there is a break, there is a drop in the ratings, and it takes time to build it back up again, sometimes only to be crushed with another break too soon after. Lots of shows are starting to do this longer, single break. LU is just filling in part of the gap, not the cause of it. LU is also going to be spending the second half of its run in another, non-GG timeslot as similar filler (although high-quality filler, IMHO).
Let's try to be patient, and spend the next three months watching & rewatching the last 3 seasons, reading the books (for those of you who care to), and living life. And enjoy the fact that with the last couple of episodes, season 3 of GG is worth watching and waiting for again!
What Did You Think of "The Treasure of Serena Madre"?
12/1/2009 12:32 AM
The first episode this season that I want to rewatch - in fact, I wanted to rewatch by the time I was only half-way through!
SO many dramas, so little time, crammed into so little space. Those who see V as useless, well i think her & her mom were perfect additions to that Thanksgiving table, teasing out tantalizing tidbits that might otherwise have fallen under the table. My view of Serena, as clueless yet beautiful blonde, sadly didn't improve by the end of the episode, though it looked like it might when she apologized to Maureen. Maureen looks like she'll be adding a bit of spice to the mix over the upcoming episodes, and I like her spunk.
The Waldorf Girls storyline had a wonderful & unexpected twist that I think no one saw coming.
Nate was terrific in this episode, at turns witty, funny, poignant... both actor & character have really grown, even since last season. NS is such a better pairing than NB (not only because CB even at its most chaste/boring is the best), but right now N is really showing himself superior to S. He is trying to be a knight in shining armour, which becomes him.
Lily just shows herself to be more and more the deceitful shrew. I keep trying to like her again, and failing. Cece's almost more upfront these days than Lily...
Round Table: "They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?"
11/12/2009 2:08 AM
Kinsey, it was a lost weekend Chuck was throwing for Nate, he wasn't cheating on Blair. At most he was seeing half-naked women parading around his apartment, but Blair seemed to sign off on it beforehand (she'd have liked more warning, and did warn him not to get too lost). Nate, as we know from season one, was just as close to the action when he was Blair's boyfriend, so it's not like it's an extra sleazy move by Chuck here.
If you recall, he didn't want to actually kiss anyone in their games, and was only upset (at first) with kissing Blair's male target because he only wanted to be kissing Blair. So, I don't think we have to worry about C or B cheating on each other anytime soon. However, Blair has every right to be pissed to have her lingerie "borrowed" by the "entertainment staff". I'm sure she'll come up with a suitable punishment for that slip...
Gossip Girl to Take Six-Week Winter Hiatus
11/12/2009 12:08 AM
I HATED last year's breaks - 5 weeks or so and then a crappy episode or two and then another long break. They f*ed up Chuck and Blair in btw the breaks, which made it all the harder. During the first long hiatus I rewatched all the previous episodes. I think it was long enough that I only had to watch one a night (but of course could never restrict myself to that...)
I was looking forward to Life UneXpected, but this scheduling does not make me happy at all. Why not stick it where The Beautiful Life was or something???
Ed and Robert
11/12/2009 12:02 AM
Interesting, this is the first time I've seen some sort of resemblance between the two... Had always assumed Chuck took after his mother. Will be really interested to see how the plot goes!
Tuesday A.M. Gossip Girl Reality Index Time!
11/4/2009 10:02 PM
"Serena asks a man: "Let me guess, you want to go upstairs and see if two blondes make a right?" Great line, but S would never think of that. Minus 2. "
Think of it herself? No. Recall it as a pick up line that worked on her in the past? Sadly, yes.

SugarBeth, I agree - so glad to finally see Chuck at the end of the promo instead of overwrought lil' J.

Jenny is scarier because she's real... well, at least Taylor is ;)
Gossip Girl Spoilers: Can Bree and Damien Be Trusted?
10/7/2009 11:48 PM
Damien gives me a creepy vibe, and I agree he looks too old. Not for anything I noticed about his hair, more the "character lines" around his mouth.
As for Jenny, definitely better than the racoon look, but still uncertain about it. The grey eyeshadow is really aging, but I'm not sure than it counteracts her baby face...
She looks very nice in some photos, but ridiculous in others. She's torn between 15 and 40 herself...
Coming Soon to Gossip Girl: Lady Gaga!
10/7/2009 11:37 PM
Can you guess from my screenname that I'm going to be excited for this? Her songs have been perfect accompaniments to GG in the past. Her style is about as far out as Jenny's has been at times. And, this chick actually grew up in NYC, and attended private school there (I once heard it was alongside Paris Hilton, but I'd not consider that really a plus), and began her career on the LES... certainly within the current territory of the show.
Just because she's not as traditionally beautiful as Blake or Leighton, doesn't mean she can make a positive impact.
I'm really looking forward to what's coming!
A Dorota Pic!

How can you not give this a 10/10? Dorota looks so beautiful... I wonder how much help she got from Blair with the outfit?
Gossip Girl Cast Interviews: Part I
9/10/2009 9:45 PM
I LOVED how cute Jess and Ed were together - they left me with a big happy grin on my face. I understand people hating Vanessa as a character (though I'm hoping for her redemption at NYU, esp. now that she's hands off Chuck), but I can see no reason to hate Jessica. Fantasizing about dating Ed yourself should stay in your own head, rather than bitching about his real life girlfriend, who just seems sweet and genuine...
BTW, for those Meestwick shippers, that was definitely Jess' laugh at the end, with Leighton saying something like "what? come on..." as if she was trying to figure out what Jess & Ed were saying about her. I'm a Chair fan, but am happy to have actors live totally separate lives from their characters. Please don't try to read too much into things, we see only so little of their lives, and have no right to decide for them who they should be with. Fictional characters, on the other hand, are naturally fair game ;D

I think it's fabulous, but I do feel a little sorry for Nate. However, I also know how tricky it can be to manipulate things around like that (unless you've got Photoshop training or mad skills or lots of time to kill), so I can deal with it.
Actually... I think S's boobs get more room on this banner... certainly more attention! :P
9/3/2009 12:38 PM
I'm digging the hat - Dan/Penn really can rock that look. It'd be nice if Dan took a couple of style cues from Chuck this season!
A Dapper Edward
9/3/2009 12:36 PM
This is got to be the worst shot I've ever seen of him! His face is blotchy, his hair looks lank and greasy, and I never realized how small his ears are...
And I usually think he's gorgeous ;)
Gossip Girl Photos: "The Freshmen"
9/3/2009 12:34 PM
PS. I agree that V's character has had inconsistencies and hypocrisy in the past. But most characters have done stuff out-of-character. I blame the writers mostly.
I also hate her fashion style, most of the time... cheap and trampy and very clashy. And that fashion sense also spills over into Jessica's real life, unfortunately. She is, however, quite beautiful.

9/3/2009 12:30 PM
I am one of those rooting for V's redemption with the coming season. Now that she is in her own environment, her own element, she can stop being irrelevant. I sooo hated the randomness of her character in the past (and her dastardly hookup with Chuck - hookupchuck). But the actress seems nice, and at least somewhat talented, so I hope she is redeemed.
But really looking forward to Georgina :D
Canadian Promo For "Reversals of Fortune"
9/3/2009 12:27 PM
I agree with Brazilian Girl - they want an unconventional relationship, and enjoyed The Game - jealousy and secrecy and so on. They don't do movie nights, so have their fun other ways. The blond is no real threat... although S. may have been right when she warned B. that it one day might go too far...
9/3/2009 12:24 PM
I presume the coloured clips are just for extra hold for S. hair? They threw me off for a second... otherwise, completely gorgeous.
9/3/2009 12:22 PM
Love the dress, and she looks fabulous... but are those just badly placed sequins, or is the dress a little too see through on those infamous breasts?
