blake lively, Carrie Bradshaw, Gossip Girl, Hick, Sex And The City
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!

Rumours are circulating that producer Michael Patrick King wants to keep the Sex and The City empire alive.
Now, before you all start jumping up and down to remind me how crap the second movie was (which is was. I’m sorry for anyone who disagrees, but it was terrible.) King is keen to go the other way.
What does that mean? you ask. We’re talking prequels. I know. I know. When have prequels ever worked? Pretty much never (I would like an example if anyone can think of one). But Sex and The City was based on the book by Candace Bushnell, and she did recently bring out The Carrie Diaries which follows Carrie before she becomes all Mr Big-ed and what not.
So who’s the gal to fill this HUGE role (assuming that it goes ahead)? Well, Michael Patrick King wants Blake Lively. For those who need a little jump start on their brain, Blake plays Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl.
So…here’s the thing. Blake can’t really act. Agree? Disagree? I don’t like her. She’s not as babelicious as she’d made out to be in the books (which was always going to be tough) and she mumbles her ways through her lines. Is this just me or does anyone else go “huh?” whenever she talks?
However, I might be wrong (I hope!) I haven’t seen her in a fun role like Carrie so for all we know she could shock us all!
Thoughts? Are you a fan of Blake Lively? What about the idea of ANOTHER Sex and The City instalment?

Well my fellow fans that time of year has come around and for once OUR opinions count when it comes to awards, yep, its the People’s Choice Awards and a couple of our faves are up. Both the beautiful Chace Crawford from Gossip Girl and the delicious Ian Somerhalder from The Vampire Diaries are both up for best Dramatic actor (which, lets be honest with these two, actual means most attractive character). Also, Blake Lively, aka Serena from Gossip Girl, is representing the girls in the favourite tv drama actor. Finally, Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries will clash heads as they are both up for Favourite TV Drama.
If you’ve paid attention to recent posts you’ll know how I am partial to my vampires…guess where my vote is going!

Leighton Meester, the devilishly evil Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, has been announced as the new face of Vera Wang’s fragrance that is to be released in the middle of next year.
So why does Leighton get this awesome gig? Well according to Vera it’s because her
“beauty, talent and spirit will inspire all the young women that I hope will enjoy this passionate, new young fragrance.”
At the same time co-star Blake Lively is rubbing shoulders with the A-listers after she was spotted having dinner with none other than Leo DiCaprio (ouch on Penn Badgley’s behalf) and “bad girl” Taylor Momsen continues with her rock star concerts.
Has anyone else noticed that while the girls are doing something with their careers the boys from Gossip Girl are well…not?

blake lively, Gossip Girl, Penn Badgley
Penn Badgley and Blake Lively, aka Dan and Serena from Gossip Girl, have appeared to have called it quits on their three year relationship. The two, who have been dating for almost the entire span of Gossip Girl, have said that they want to remain “friends” and will keep it professional on the set.
While this is sad to hear, it would be hard dealing with your ex on a daily basis…particularly if their character counterparts decide to reignite their relationship.
Does anyone else kinda hope for a hissy fit on set? I know I do!
