Looks like mid ’00 TV fan dreams do come true! Adam Brody and Leighton Meester – better known in our hearts as Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf – are rumored to be engaged after dating for a little over a year. Emphasis at the moment on the word rumored since we’re still working with sources close to the couple. No, wait, scratch that. According to Wonderwall, we’re dealing with a spy close to the couple. Which is like a source, but much better at skulking around corners and pretending to be reading newspapers when people walk by.
Right now the only details we have come from our spy who says the couple celebrated their engagement at a party on November 10th. But that seems suspicious since I was free November 10th and didn’t get an invite. I didn’t devote years of my life to watching The OC while wearing headbands for nothing. Nor did I write this post about Adam Brody doing the drive of shame from Leighton Meester’s place for fun. No I did all this because I expected to be a part of the festivities. But like Ryan, I’m stuck in the (metaphorical) pool house. Unlike Ryan, Sandy Cohen hasn’t offered me any fatherly advice recently.
And yeah, if I’m coming off as a little crazy and bitter here, it’s because I am. Years after I gave up on The OC, there’s a part of me that still thinks Seth Cohen’s the guy for me. Sure I know he’s fictional and sure I know that the presence of Captain Oats in his life as a teenager is a red flag (or two), but still, this is an emotional day for me.Then again, our spy could be totally off his game and just be confusing reality with some quality Gossip Girl/The OC fan fic.
