Gossip Girl Season Five

Leave a comment

It’s that lovely time of year, television fans.  In the US, their Summer is over, Autumn has come around again and therefore all those rich actors who earn butt loads per episode are back from their exotic holidays (which their butt loads of money paid for) and forced to go back to work for our petty entertainment.

Sucks for them, but fantastic for us.  Particularly for us Aussies who have excellent viewing coming up, without the impending doom that is winter (sorry US!)

As readers will know, Vampire Diaries started up last weekend, Dexter is scheduled for only ten days away (but who’s counting?) and even Archer (sorry, I don’t have anything on Archer on this website, but if you’re interested send me a line) started last week.

And now Gossip Girl has arrived.  Hurray!  Well…almost.  The premiere for Season Five is scheduled for September 26th in the US, so if you’re a savvy internet goer (read: illegal downloader) you can access it the next day.  Yes!!

So far, Season Five will be set in both New York AND Los Angeles (read above information about sunny holidays rich people go on) and there has been a whisper that Dan and Blair may get back together…which Chuck suitably does NOT like at all.

Check out the trailer and let me know what you think.  I’m particularly interested in what you think about Liz Hurley going all cougar on the beautiful Nate (seriously, how can she “hook up” with Chace Crawford and then go home to Shane Warne?  It is beyond me).

Thoughts?

If you’ve ever had a fight with your mum, and let’s be honest, it was over something really trivial (“No! Mother!  This skirt is NOT too short, it’s just the fashion these days!”  Anyway…) and then you felt bad, well…feel bad again.  Because let’s be honest, our mums could be worse.

Your mum could be like Leighton Meester’s mum, Constance…who is a craaazzzzy, selfish bitch.

Now, before you get all “you’re being so Gossip Girl” on my arse (tehehe), hear me out.

First off, Leighton Meester was actually born in a prison.  Why?  Because her ma was incarcerated over partaking in an illegal drug ring.  Whoops!  Bet you don’t feel so bad now when you think back to that that time your mum reminded you of her heyday huh?

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Constance has now taken Leighton to court.

Say what?

Yep.  And why you ask? (I hope you ask at least, otherwise…why are you even reading this?)  Because Leighton Meester isn’t paying her enough.  And she wants her some more moolah.

Currently, Leighton WILLING started giving Constance $7,500 to pay for her younger brother’s medical fees (best. sister. ever. by the way).  But Constance says that Leighton agreed to pay $10,000 a month and she isn’t coughing up the dough.

Right.

WELL if that isn’t bad enough (but it is, it really is) Leighton had to go to court to prove the claims were untrue, and so her mum decided to take HER to court to prove that she was right.

This saga is still going on.  Although as Leighton Meester’s legal team have pointed out…ummm, she doesn’t have to give you ANYTHING yo crazy lady, she’s just doing it so out of the goodness of her kind, sisterly heart…and she doesn’t have to give you a cent if she doesn’t feel like it.

They make an excellent point.

What do you think?  Personally, I feel for the little brother who may end up with no more medical expenses because his mum was too greedy for her own good.  Here’s hoping not!

Coming up Roses

Now, I don’t know about you, but I feel like these days whenever I feel like a little Gossip Girl and turn it on, Nate Archibald, aka the yummy Chace Crawford, is nowhere to be found.  I mean, don’t be shocked, the guy is still on the show, but I feel like his character has gone a bit…meh.  He just kinda swans in, says something ubiquitous and then swans out.  Which would be fair enough if he were topless, but in these scenes he’s always…clothed.

I know, what the hell are The CW thinking?

So, feeling a little Chace Crawford deprived I looked up to see what he was up to and I soon learned that while Nate Archibald is as boring as watching grass grow (quite seriously, that boy needs to do something drastic already), Chace’s life is going swimmingly.

First off, didn’t have to go to jail for being a big ol’ pothead.  Might I just add though, that doesn’t everyone do pot?  Why on earth WOULD they have jailed such an attractive guy for basically nothing?  Anyway.  Moving on.

Secondly, he doesn’t have to deal with Taylor Momsen anymore since she’s given up on acting.  Not sure if he considers this a good thing, but the rest of the world does so let’s just go with it, shall we?

Thirdly, while his television career is suitable “eh” at the moment, he has a big bunch of hilarious sounding movies coming up.

The first, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, is currently filming and has a giant cast of famous people (Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock and Jennifer Lopez to name a few) all getting together and having babies.  Awwww.  While news about Chace’s character hasn’t been released yet, I assume he’ll be someone’s baby daddy.  And hey, why not?

The other movie that has just been announced is called Responsible Adults and sounds absolutely hilarious (you hear that Chace?  Don’t disappoint me ok?).  Chace stars opposite Katie Holmes (bless her soul for doing something that doesn’t revolve around Tom Cruise), the older woman who starts dating him…before she realised that back in the day she was his nanny.  Oohh!  The possible consequences!

So what do you think?  Everything coming up roses for Chace or is he just a really busy bee?  Let me know!

She’s Outta Here

We’ve been wanting it to happen for a long time.  Praying.  Wishing.  Possibly doing a crazy voodoo style rain-type dance.

And it has.  Taylor Momsen, aka Racoon Eyes, has decided that she is totally over that whole acting thing and has quit Gossip Girl.  Yep.  Little J is no more.  Although, honestly Little J stopped existing long ago and in her place was a dirty skanky ho bag.  Or something like that.

Anyway, Taylor Momsen has decided that acting is not for her (she has been doing it for years…remember, she was the little cutie alongside Jim Carey in The Grinch) and that she solely wants to focus on music, touring and her band, The Pretty Reckless.

In an interview with Elle Magazine she was quoted as saying:

I quit acting, actually.  I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and that’s pretty much all I want to do.  Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.

So what do you think?  Can Taylor be a successful muso or is just the look that she’s got down pat?  Thoughts please!

Gossipy Gossip About A Gossip Girl

Huh?  You ask.  Bear with me please.  And just wait for the irony.  Or perhaps just life imitating art?

Now as we all know (because being good fan people we keep up with useless celebrity gossip that we don’t really need to know…right?) Leighton Meester plays the devilishly bitchy Blair.  She schemes, yells at people, orders her maid around, kisses many different boys…whoa.  Wait. What was that last one?  Kisses lots of different boys?  Hmm…interesting.

More importantly though, is the show that Leighton/Blair stars in.  Gossip Girl.  Yes, a show that not only is based around people with too much money, but is actually named after the faceless character who dishes all the dirt on them.  Well.  Looks like Leighton is starting to understand how Blair feels.  Why?  Because rumour has it Leighton’s been keeping two boys company…

“Sources say” that just on Sunday Blair was making out with her Country Strong co-star Garrett Hedlund (don’t worry, I’ve never heard of him either so I’ll include a photo for everyone’s sake).  Fair enough.  Who doesn’t love a little lip action (OK, it was probably more, but still…this isn’t a bad thing…considering that they are both attractive after all).

Now here are when things get sticky.  The very NEXT night Leighton is at a dinner party and is “overheard” to be raving about her recent romantic dates with actor Justin Long.

Awkward.

So chances are that it isn’t true, but haha either way!  Like I said, life imitating art?

What do you think?  Do you think Leighton is two timing?  And would it really be cheating anyway?

OUTRAGE!

A couple of weeks (months?) ago, I ran a post about who was going to play Jeff Buckley in his highly anticipated biopic.  Many thought Rob Pattinson was going to get the role.  I (and many others) wanted James Franco to play the role, considering how amazing an actor he is…oh, and the uncanny resemblance the two share.

Well.  Neither party are going to get their finger in that pie (don’t ask).  Why?  Because the role of Jeff Buckley, one of the most iconic singers of our time (ish), has gone to Penn Badgley…

Yes, as in bumbling, fussy Dan from Gossip Girl.

Now, don’t get me wrong I like Penn.  He has a bit of a quirky charm.  Kinda like the American version of Hugh Grant perhaps (but without the hooker problem on the side…I hope).  But is he Jeff Buckley?  I don’t think so.

What do you think?  Happy?  Disappointed?  Willing to join me in a trip to Hollywood with your favourite throwing chair?  Let me know!

It’s ALL About Blake Lively!

We all know Blake Lively, yes?  That blonde chick from The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants films, the occasional film and of course, the always scandalous Serena van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl.  So she’s used to the spotlight.  Well.  The spotlight is on her right now.  Big Time.

On the positive note she’s got a new movie coming out, The Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds.  Basically she plays the eye candy (I assume) while Ryan Reynolds runs around being a badass superhero who really likes the colour green (or something like that).  So not only does she get to star in a big block-buster, but she gets to do it alongside Ryan Reynolds.  Sounds like a win-win deal for her.

On a less, but still positive (depends who you are really) note, Blake has been linked to Leonardo DeCaprio, Mr Serious Actor himself.  Since the Cannes film festival they have been constantly spending time together, frolicking on yachts in Italy and so forth.  Sounds like the high life to me.  And this is coming from someone who doesn’t even like Leonardo DeCaprio.

But aside from that…there has been some, well, bad news for Blake.  She’s had some nude photos leaked…onto the Internet.  Whoops!  While some people are saying that she leaked them herself (ouch!  That’s the type of thing only a D list celebrity would do…YES I’m talking about you Heidi Montag)  Blake is trying to fix the situation (somehow) and is vowing that the photos are fake.

Now…this may be just me, or it may be because I’m not a famous celebrity, but WHY would Blake take naked photos of herself…on her phone…and there somehow leave them around to have them uploaded onto the Internet?  Surely the myriad of other stars (Vanessa Hudgens, shame on you TWICE) who’ve had this unfortunate mishap happen to them would deter her from making nude photos…

but HEY!  I could be wrong.  In the modern age of technology, for all we know this could just be a way to generate interest for The Green Lantern.  And I thought she wasn’t a true professional!

What do YOU think?  Have you seen the naked photos?  Do you think they’re legitimate?  Let me know!

Ed Came To Town!

To be honest the news that I found out today (and am about to pass on to you my fellow internet-users) annoyed me a bit.  Not because it is bad news.  No, far from it.  It’s quite good news actually.  No what I found annoying was that by the time I found out about it…it was too late.

For those who aren’t from Melbourne (shame on you on that fact alone) every March we hold the Grand Prix (aka fast cars and grid-girls being sluts.  I’m sure you get the picture).  If you ARE from Melbourne you’ll know that with each passing year, less and less people are interested…so they try to bring in some hot celebrities to get our attention.

Far enough.   Depending on the celebrity I would go.  Maybe.  Depending what I had on that weekend.  But here is the thing.  I would actually have to know who it was…before the actual event!

Well, sadly this was not the case, and a celebrity I was actually interested in came to town.  That celebrity?  The wonderful Ed Westwick who plays the oh-so-delightful Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl.  Yes.  That’s right.  I missed him and his gorgeous, man-slutty ways.  Disappointment.

However, what is worse is that this was not the first time something like this has happened.  No.  Something far worse happened last year.  Last year the beautiful Vampire Diaries trio (Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev) graced our lovely shores, had a convention, met the fans…and I did not go.  Why you ask?  Well…I wasn’t actually a Vampire Diaries fan back then…

Has this ever happened to you?  Seen the paper and gone, NOOO!!! They’re my favourite celebrity and now they’ve gone back home! Or something similar…

Gossip Girl fans out there, do you remember a lovely character who goes by the name of Georgina Sparks?  Lovely hair, pale skin, rich (of course) and, oh yeah, batshit crazy.  You do?!?! Were you glad when she finally left (again)?  You weren’t?!?!  Well how convenient.  Because she’s making a return (again).

If the name doesn’t ring a bell for you (obviously not a true fan, are you?), Georgina Sparks basically made Serena AND Blair look tame.  She partied hard, schemed hard and all-round was a manipulative bitch.  Basically, just combine Serena and Blair together, through in a little more craziness and drugs and voila! there you have Georgina Sparks.

However, don’t let this put you off her character.  She’s always interesting and there is always trouble when she’s around.  Even the lovely Michelle Trachtenberg thinks so!

“Yes, I will be back. Georgina is trouble, that word has become synonymous… there will definitely more ‘Gossip Girl’ in my future!”

Thoughts?  What do you think about Georgina making a re-appearance?  A chance for more craziness and fun?  Or over-done?

Sadly (or not sadly for some of us) Blake Lively will NOT be playing Carrie Bradshaw in the prequel to Sex and The City.

However, before you Blake fans (out of interest, who IS a fan?  Anyone? Anyone at all?) begin to cry you’ll still see your blonde-haired darling on the big screen.

Blake Lively has announced (and this one IS for certain…promise) that she will be starring in a serious drama, Hick.  Her character will be the drugged addicted mum to a thirteen year old.

While it IS nice to see Gossip Girl stars pick roles which actually expect them to act (and I don’t mean this as an insult…they’re just expected to look good) I really can’t see Blake as a mum.  Drug fucked? Most definitely.  But old enough to have given birth thirteen years ago? Um…not so much.

Thoughts?  Let me know!
