Someone Tell Chuck Bass To Remove This Sinister Creature From Ed Westwick's Face Before It's Too Late

Some recently snapped paparazzi photos of Ed Westwick have made me somewhat worried about his post-Gossip Girl future. You see, while I initially thought he was going to be more okay than most cast members, what with his fallback career in Brit rock and large, powerful jaw muscles, it seems he has already weakened to the point where an opportunistic parasite has taken up residence on his face.

Even Though Gossip Girl Should Have Been Called ‘Desperately Seeking Serena,’ I Have High Hopes For This Season

Even Though Gossip Girl Should Have Been Called 'Desperately Seeking Serena,' I Have High Hopes For This Season

Gossip Girl quipped in a voiceover during last night’s season premiere, “age breeds wisdom.” Good thing that expression has no bearing on the Gossip Girl crew when it comes to epic adventuring. Last night marked the beginning of the end for my favorite gang of Upper East Siders (plus one displaced Brooklynite), and they’re just as clueless as ever in many respects. Thank god the gang hasn’t grown up and out of their hijinks! More »

Evaluating The Relative Career Prospects Of The Gossip Girl Kids

The final season of Gossip Girl begins tonight, and you know what that means: time for the cast to get their ducks in a row so they do not look back on this millennial melodrama about wealthy teenagers as the high point of their careers. But like the spawn of the majestic sea turtle, not all of these bushy-tailed babes can survive into adulthood to become Serious Actors. Who will reach the warm narrows of the silver screen, and who will founder on the rocky shoals of made-for-TV movies? Let’s discuss. (I’ve arranged them from “most likely to succeed” to “outlook not good.”) More »

The 30-Year-Old Man's Guide To Gossip Girl: The Jewel of Denial

CHUCK KEPT THE DOG!! Sorry, I probably shouldn’t lead with the emotional climax of this week’s episode, but it’s possible this moment changes Gossip Girl forever. More on that later.

The pot keeps bubbling in episode five. Dan decides to take credit for the embarrassing novel he’s been trying to kill, Blair reveals Louis to be her child’s father, Charlie finds a way to stay in the city, and Elizabeth Hurley may be the greatest threat to Gossip Girl since net neutrality. Now for the details: More »

The 30-Year-Old Manâs Guide To Gossip Girl: Yes, Then Zero

Joshua Friesen is a man in his 30s who’s obsessed with pop culture. This is how his brain processes Gossip Girl.

DAVID O. RUSSELL
? Are you kidding me, Gossip Girl? Not six months ago, he was in a tux at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel hoping to collect an Oscar for directing “The Fighter.” Now he has a cameo on a CW soap opera? The only possible explanation here is blackmail. Remember, George Clooney once punched this guy in the jaw. O. Russell’s all over You Tube screaming at poor Lily Tomlin. By all accounts he’s a miserable human being. The producers must have something so terrible on him, something so heinous that he’s at their beck and call. Or he’s stopped taking himself so seriously and he’s just having a good time. It could go either way. More »
