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).



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…
