With the Gossip Girl series finale airing on December 10th, it’s no surprise that the cast had their wrap party this weekend. But it’s bittersweet to see Blake Lively post photos of Chace Crawford covered in cake and realize that we have to actually say goodbye in just a few weeks. More

Part of what made Serena van der Woodsen so charming (and frustrating) in the Gossip Girl books was how she didn’t have to exert any effort to achieve her charmed life. But by making her try and be Gossip Girl, the show has turned her into a petty, backstabbing shrew that’s just not fun to watch. More
We applaud Georgina and Chuck’s manipulations and are tired of Blair’s various love affairs on Valentine’s Day. Kissing Dan while married to Louis and secretly in love with Chuck, really? More
We would have been OK if Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) were Gossip Girl, but then the writers blew it this week and basically retracted their big “reveal.” Now Georgina’s back to being annoying, not to mention utterly powerless. More
This episode should have been retitled “Dan and Blair Sit Around in an Airport and then a Hotel While Other People Wonder Where They Are,” but at least Blair stood up for herself and we now know the truth about Gossip Girl and the real Charlie Rhodes. More
Here’s what I’m thinking: Gossip Girl is a code name given to any number of in-the-know New Yorkers with an exhaustive list of tipsters and a grudge against the Upper East Side kids. Which means that Georgina Sparks is only GG’s latest disciple, not the original snarky blogger herself. More
Blair loses out this week after abandoning her wedding reception… but Dan, who steals a limo for her a la The Graduate, nearly makes it to the top of our power ranking. The only person in his way? Georgina, who might also be Gossip Girl herself! More
Michelle Trachtenberg recently told US Weekly that she was considered for the role of Bella in the insanely successful Twilight franchise due to her uniquely pale complexion. “There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,” she explained. I had no idea white people were so underrepresented in popular culture! Oh wait, they’re not. Here are 13 working Hollywood actresses just as pale as Michelle Trachtenberg. More
It’s official, the film adaptation of Jonathan Franzen‘s novel The Corrections will air as a series on HBO. Hooray – I love that book so much! Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper are already cast as the matriarch and patriarch of a dysfunctional family, but who will play the other characters? Like annoyingly rebellious academic Chip? Or chef Denise, who’s exploring her sexuality? Here’s my dream cast — take notes, HBO. More

Seth Green just tweeted this photo of Katee Sackhoff, Michelle Trachtenberg, Billy Baldwin, and Harold Perrineau, Jr. at the table read for Sexy Evil Genius, a new indie film. Of course, in this photo we’ve got a bevy of geeky shows represented: Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica. The sexy evil genius of the title is Sackhoff, who lures her exes to meet her at an L.A. bar, though they have no idea what her devious intentions are. More
Many hearts were broken – including ours – when ABC announced the cancellation of two of their long-running soaps, All My Children and One Life to Live. Though soaps get a reputation for being full of evil twins and demonic possessions (which, sometimes, they kinda are), soaps are also a breeding ground for young talent. More
Is it life imitating art? Leighton Meester attended a party in her honor at New York’s W Hotel — and all the cool kids showed up! The party was thrown by Nylon Mag, whose cover Leighton graces this month. Gossip Girl stars Jessica Szohr and Michelle Trachtenberg were there along with Leighton’s The Roommate co-star, Minka Kelly. Bonus: Kanye West and Jared Leto showed up just in time to flip off the camera. Thanks, guys! More
We know Fashion Week, for all it’s glamor and gift bags, can be exhausting. But most of the time, we’re grateful to even get a seat or be snapping pics on the red carpet, even if it means walking 20 blocks on the West Side Highway (in heels) just to make it to a show someone’s decided to hold in a Pier that resembles a giant, abandoned warehouse that someone threw a runway in the middle of.
But what we don’t get is why celebrities – those who are given the star treatment, the best seats, and all the swag they could ask for — always look so miserable while models parade by them like they were the royal court back in medieval times. Cheer up, people! Or at least, try to look a little less put-out. More
