'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?'

November 10th, 2009 8:28am EST
Gossip Girl
It was time for Gossip Girl's very own Little J (Taylor Momsen) to prove herself to society's finest. Cotillion was upon the Upper East Side, and Jenny was struggling to find an escort to match her queen standards.

The minions were set out to acquire Graham Collins, only the most attractive boy at school. However, Eric (Connor Paolo) could have just as easily asked Graham to be Jenny's escort, but that would require Eric and Jenny to actually be getting along. Eric, still raw about the Met steps incident, decided he would take the limelight away from Jenny…in order to save her and make ...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Grandfather: Part II'

November 3rd, 2009 8:47am EST
Gossip Girl
Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) must have been missing from the Gossip Girl universe because he was super busy working on his cousin, Tripp's (Aaron Tveit), congressional election. But, Nate made up for his lack of screen time by inviting all of his Upper East Side friends to Chuck's (Ed Westwick) hotel for his cousin's political watch party.

The moments leading up to the party weren't quite as good as the end result of Tripp's obvious victory. Serena (Blake Lively) needed an invite to the Vanderbilt election party so her new boyfriend Patrick (Olivia's (Hilary Duff) ex from the knock-o...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'How To Succeed In Bassness'

October 27th, 2009 8:30am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl was ready to put everyone in the Halloween spirit with a full basket of tricks and treats to go around. Chuck (Ed Westwick) needed to seduce new clients to his hotel, and he thought a club opening on Halloween would be just the trick to get everyone interested to visit during the holiday season.

He hired Serena (Blake Lively) in her new role as a publicity assistant to help with the club's grand opening. But, sparks flew when Chuck did not want Blair (Leighton Meester) to be involved because of the conniving gay kiss incident from the past week.

Chuck was determined to go ...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: Where Is This Show Going?

October 20th, 2009 9:57am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl needs to learn that the old way of doing things just isn't cutting it anymore. Storylines keep repeating themselves week to week and they aren't improving. With that being said, in this episode titled 'Enough About Eve,' Blair (Leighton Meester) started off this week upset about the fact that she's still not running NYU. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) having a major article about herself in the paper didn't help matters either.

NYU was hosting a parents' weekend and Blair thought it would be a fabulous way to fall into the hierarchy by giving a coveted toast. However, Vanessa was th...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: It's A Boy, A Wedding & Sonic Youth

October 13th, 2009 8:10am EDT
Gossip Girl
While wedding season may be behind us, Gossip Girl tried to bring some ceremonial bliss to the Upper East Side. But, first things first, there was some relationship drama that needed to be sorted out before anyone could have a 'happily ever after.'

Dan (Penn Badgley) was left all by his lonesome while new movie-star girlfriend Olivia (Hilary Duff) was off on an Asian press/movie tour. While Olivia had left, Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) had come back to play, or pounce as the situation might more appropriately be described.

Georgina had gone to Boston to have Scott (Chris Riggi) c...

Recap: Star-Studded 'Gossip Girl' Features Hilary Duff, Tyra Banks

October 6th, 2009 8:02am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl went to the movies this week. And while I'll give our favorite Upper East Siders two thumbs up for their "star-studded" attempt and their amusing self-referential nature, the rest of the episode made me question whether Gossip Girl really can survive in these post-college years.

The episode began by reminding the viewers that not everyone has left the private, prep-school life. Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and Eric (Connor Paolo) headed back to high school. Jenny had a surprise waiting for her, though. She found her very own little minions dressed in semi-spin-off punk-rock chic and...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Lost Boy'

September 29th, 2009 9:15am EDT
Gossip Girl
This week Gossip Girl proved the sad fact that even when you think people have changed, they probably haven't. Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) was still out to destroy Blair (Leighton Meester). Her first step was destroying Blair's gag reflexes by sucking face with Dan (Penn Badgley) in their dorm room. Even though Blair left the room, Serena (Blake Lively) happened to catch Dan's walk of shame. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and Serena both expressed concern about Dan's "dating" Georgina.

Vanessa had bigger problems, though. Scott (Chris Riggi) was acting weirder than his usual creepy self. H...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Freshman'

September 22nd, 2009 8:48am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl went back to school this week, but they're not at Constance anymore…despite what Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) may think. Blair's main goal was to take over NYU the same way she did Constance. But, taking over NYU students' brains isn't as easy as dictating where they sit on the steps of the Met. First off, Blair began fighting an uphill battle as soon as Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) revealed herself as her roommate. At the end of last season, Georgina connived her way with the admission lady to become Blair's roommate, but played the innocent victim in front of fe...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: Serena Flees On A Horse, Nate Has A New Girl

September 15th, 2009 8:01am EDT
Gossip Girl
Last season Gossip Girl promised a pre-college clean slate to the Upper East Siders, but of course, that didn't keep them quiet over the summer. Nate (Chace Crawford), after apparently ditching Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) in Europe, came home with a new girl named Bree Buckley (Joanna Garcia). This new girl just happened to also be part of NYC royalty, and from a family that rivals the Vanderbilts'…Nate's mother's side of the family, for any who might have forgotten.

But it wasn't just Nate living the high life, Dan (Penn Badgley) and Jenny (Taylor Momsen) took a liking to their new summer h...

'Gossip Girl' Fans Spark More Security Fears

September 7th, 2009 4:06pm EDT
New York City police have stepped in to protect the cast of hit drama Gossip Girl - after fans sparked security fears by storming the set over the weekend.

Co-stars and real-life couple Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, and actors Ed Westwick and Taylor Momsen, were filming a party scene at Manhattan's Empire Hotel when hordes of screaming teen fans prompted complaints from guests.

Police barricades and security guards were needed to keep the over-excited devotees at a distance.

And according to the New York Post, Lively and Badgley's off-screen romance added to the furor.

On an upcoming episode of the third season of Gossip Girl, Ed Westwick's legendary lothario kisses another man, insiders confirm to EW.com.

No, the lucky recipient of Chuck Bass' liplock won't be Nate Archibald. Westwick's "romantic" interest is up-and-comer Neal Bledsoe (CSI: NY, Guiding Light), who's guest-starring in episode six as Josh Ellis, NYU's head of freshman affairs.

Chace Crawford
Chace Crawford broke through with his role on Gossip Girl, but the soon-to-be Footloose remake star will be a household name after his selection as People's Hottest Bachelor.

Ed Westwick Converts Vegetarian Girlfriend

May 31st, 2009 1:00pm EDT
Ed Westwick
Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick is such a good cook, he's convinced his vegetarian girlfriend Jessica Szohr to eat meat again.

Szohr, who met Westwick on the set of the hit show, quit eating meat as a teenager, but was tempted back to flesh during a recent cooking session with her beau. And it was so good, she'll never quit again.

She tells Men's Health magazine, "After 10 years of eating vegetarian, I tried my boyfriend's (food). I was overwhelmed. It was orgasmic."

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Goodbye Gossip Girl'

May 19th, 2009 10:21am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl may bring the drama, but it lacks in the follow-through. This year's season finale brought many almosts. We saw the beginning of a graduation ceremony, with the boys and girls of Constance and St. Jude's dressed in appropriately tacky (and clashing) green and blue polyester robes. It was interrupted with a blast from Gossip Girl blaring everyone's insecurities. I'm sure the gang graduated, but we didn't see it. We also didn't see Serena's (Blake Lively) hat; her tassel was tied to her hair. Classy.

Gossip Girl was almost going to leave everyone alone after they went off to ...

Ed Westwick And Gemma Arterton Cast For 'Wuthering Heights'

Gemma Arterton
Ed Westwick and Gemma Arterton are set to embark on a dark love affair - the pair has been cast in the remake of tragic romance Wuthering Heights.

After a series of setbacks, including leading lady Natalie Portman dropping out of the project, studio bosses have finally decided on Bond girl Arterton to play Cathy in the new adaptation of Emily Bronte's classic novel.

And Gossip Girl hunk Westwick will take on the menacing anti-hero Heathcliff, a role that was first linked to Hunger actor Michael Fassbender.

And the movie's producer Robert Bernstein is ecstatic with the casting...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'Valley Girls'

May 12th, 2009 10:54am EDT
Gossip Girl
Before there was Gossip Girl, there apparently was Lily Rhodes (Brittany Snow) living it up in Los Angeles. Everyone understands characters have back stories, but this one was forced on to Gossip Girl watchers as producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage attempt to get their spin-off on the CW fall schedule with this backdoor pilot.

This episode lacked the opening narration from our beloved Gossip Girl (Kristen Bell); instead we were greeted with an 80s flashback to Lily's past life. Her parents, 80s icon Andrew McCarthy and Cynthia Watros (Rick and CeCe) had to decide what to...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Wrath of Con'

May 5th, 2009 10:06am EDT
Gossip Girl
This week, the Gossip Girl gang united their powers for good, instead of evil…sort of. After Gabriel (Armie Hammer) supposedly took everyone's money, Serena (Blake Lively) enlisted the help of her friends to get it back. Blair (Leighton Meester) used Serena's crisis to avoid talking to Nate (Chace Crawford) about living together next year. And Chuck used this to his advantage to bring Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) back to the Upper East Side.

Serena originally was going to tell her mother (Kelly Rutherford) about the stolen money, but Lily prevented her from doing so by...

Chace Crawford Calls It Quits With Roommate Westwick

April 29th, 2009 11:51am EDT
Chace Crawford
Actor Chace Crawford is moving out of the New York apartment he shares with his Gossip Girl co-star Ed Westwick and he's on the hunt for his own bachelor pad.

The handsome pair have been real-life roommates since moving to the Big Apple for the TV drama, and have shared an apartment in Manhattan's Chelsea district since the series began airing in 2007.

However Crawford, 23, is looking for some privacy from Westwick, 21, and is eyeing a move "downtown, in a secure building with a doorman," a source tells the New York Post.

The source adds, "Chace wants to move out to ...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'Southern Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'

Blair (Leighton Meester) may be back with Nate (Chace Crawford), but you can't take the conniving Gossip Girl out of her. After learning of Serena's (Blake Lively) new boyfriend's disappearing acts and lack of commitment, Blair sets out to spy on him. Gabriel (Armie Hammer) is caught in cohorts with supposed ex-girlfriend Poppy Lifton (Tamara Feldman).

Blair relays the news to Serena, but she refuses to believe it. Gabriel tells her a story about the new company he's creating and how Poppy holds the key to all his contacts. Since she's running the show, he can't tell her that he's seei...

Male Stars We Like To See Shirtless

April 24th, 2009 11:21am EDT
Friday Night Lights
Even if you don't buy into the whole spring in the air deal, there is definitely something to be said about male stars in the buff.

Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick

In a given episode of Gossip Girl, Ed Westwick's Chuck Bass is usually front and center. Westwick even has the English accent in real life going for him. The recent pictures of him shirtless in Miami were a little on the unappealing side. So if it's a basic physical competition between Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick it's all about what you're into-the pretty boys or the bad ones.

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'Seder Anything'

April 21st, 2009 9:51am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl celebrated Passover Seder, which meant it was a good time for the writers to find all words that rhymed with Seder…like cater and waiter. Eleanor Waldorf (Margaret Colin) and new husband Cyrus (Wallace Shawn) hosted the Seder dinner at their home, but it ended up being a mess - as most things turn out on the Upper East Side.

It all began when Blair (Leighton Meester) decided to skip Seder for Nate's (Chace Crawford) cousin's wedding. She thought that Nate had a surprise up his sleeve for her, namely his future cousin-in-law putting in a recommendation for her to be on a p...

Producers Worry About Ed Westwick's Weight Gain

April 10th, 2009 11:33am EDT
Ed Westwick
Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick has reportedly come under fire from TV bosses for gaining weight - because they've had to buy an entire new wardrobe to accommodate his expanding waistline.

The 21-year-old British actor, who plays womanizing Chuck Bass on the hit show, has been living large since moving to New York to film the series. And the show's stylists are urging producers to intervene, reports the New York Daily News.

An on-set source says, "Ed has been gaining a lot of weight - not just around the waist, but through the whole body. First, the costume department had to buy hi...

Gossip Girl
It may have been Jenny Humphrey's (Taylor Momsen) Sweet Sixteen, but she wasn't the only one being surprised on this week's episode of Gossip Girl. Chuck (Ed Westwick) was surprised to find Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford) canoodling in the early morning hours. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) was surprised to find this news out from Chuck. And Serena (Blake Lively) was surprised to realize she was living in a rut.

Serena, to alleviate her rut, decided to take it into her own hands to throw Jenny a smashing birthday party. Her plans, however, were slightly disrupted when Jenny...

Gossip Girl
It's not too often that we see the parents of our favorite Gossip Girl characters, let alone their grandparents, but this week the Vanderbilt clan was in full swing trying to woo Nate (Chace Crawford) back into their legacy of greatness.

After a surprise visit from his cousin Tripp, Nate decides to take Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and Dan's (Penn Badgley) advice and spend some time at his family reunion. Vanessa and Dan don't realize what they've started by forcing this little impromptu encounter. Dan's pain was minimal from the rough game of touch football; Vanessa, on the other hand, did...

'Gossip Girl' Star Ed Westwick Loves His Co-Star, Insists He's Not Gay

March 20th, 2009 1:15pm EDT
Ed Westwick
Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick is fed up with the constant speculation over his sexuality, insisting rumors he's gay are "ridiculous."

The actor has repeatedly been forced to deny allegations he's homosexual amid claims he's secretly dating his TV co-star, Chace Crawford. But the 21-year-old is adamant his affection for Crawford is only brotherly - and they have bonded over their shared love of women.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "It's funny because I love this f---ing dude dearly. I would die for this f---ing dude. He's my brother. But, by God, we are so into our f---ing women ...

All Is Not Innocent On 'Gossip Girl'

March 17th, 2009 9:52am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl is back, finally! It's been a long time since we've checked in with the Upper East Side, but not too much has changed except now instead of sporting designer labels, the kids of Constance are dressing in their best Old English attire to perform in the play "Age of Innocence."

The new up and coming Broadway director Julian had been hired on to help the school look great in the paper. But Serena (Blake Lively) thought that Julian looked great…in person. However, the two of them didn't really have anything in common. Vanessa (Jessica Szhor) was hanging around the play making a...

Best TV Couples That Aren't Together - But Should Be

February 13th, 2009 9:00am EST
There are a few unifying themes that you can find in almost any television show: drama, comedy, and yes, even a touch of romance. Comedies have plenty of drama (Hello Pam/Jim drama in The Office) and drama can have moments of comedy (everything Hurley says on Lost), but they all tend to have a focus on relationships. Even Law & Order, a cut and dry procedural, has a pairing here and there.

Yet there's a rule for shows that if a couple has great chemistry and sexual tension, don't let them get them together! It'll ruin the show! This has been the case a few times, but here are a few no...
