'Gossip Girl' recap: Beginning of the end

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl you missed out on a wild soapy ride — complete with a death! So if you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read on.

'Gossip Girl' recap: Dumping ground

Some TV shows get a kick out of having annual Halloween episodes, but on Gossip Girl, it’s common practice to dress up and pretend to be something you’re not. Luckily, the Upper East Side has its own version of a Pagan holiday — Cotillion! Except this annual tradition has less virgin sacrifices — because let’s face it, where are we going to find a virgin among this crowd?

Alas, this parade of “innocence,” in which Sage was set to participate (HAHA!), was the focal point of all the action this week.


'Gossip Girl' recap: Keeping it in the family

After six seasons of Gossip Girl, it’s hardly a surprise when we learn that the new boyfriend on the block has been around the block. But I had to feel a little pain for poor Serena van der Floozy in tonight’s episode because I can’t imagine it’s fun to learn that one of the stops on your boyfriend’s tour de man-slut was your own mother.

But that’s exactly what happened when the Spectator blasted a story confirming that Steven (Barry Watson) had a once hooked up with Lily. That face you’re making after reading that sentence — that was pretty much Serena and Sage’s reactions, too. READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: A B in B's clothing

What an incredibly frustrating episode of Gossip Girl.

If I may recap from the top of Mount Holier Than Thou — I think every character on this show was secretly infected with some sort of crazy virus à la The Walking Dead, died (inside), activated the virus, and now roams the streets of New York calling themselves “mentors.” Yup, there’s no other option because these people can’t be real. (Also, Sandra, newsflash: They’re not.)

Alas, in whatever warped reality in which Gossip Girl takes place, this week’s episode found Serena and Blair at each other’s throats in a pretty massive (and juvenile) way, Dan backstabbing his best bro, Serena playing big sis/mini-mom to Sage, and Sage just asking to be slapped. I get that this season was meant to test the relationships, but this isn’t a test. This is character implosion! READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: WWD-Day

It appears something got into the champagne on the Upper East Side because everybody was getting a little action at the beginning of this week’s episode of Gossip Girl.

Nate was sleeping with a girl I’m convinced is the younger sister of Shannyn Sossamon. Serena had traded train crack for the time in the sack. And Georgina was getting a little sexual satisfaction by watching Dan sleep. Creepy. And sad.

Also sad: Serena salivating over the idea of an “adult Manhattan.” First off, S, the city has the word “man” in it; there’s never going to be anything adult about it. (I’mnotbitter!) Also, the words “adult” and “Manhattan” next to each other sound boring. Almost as boring as Central Park Conservancy Gala.

Meanwhile, Blair was worried about WWD Day. READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' season 6 premiere recap: A fresh start

With age comes wisdom? Whoever said that should have passed the memo to the Gossip Girl gang, because after six seasons, they’re still as clueless as ever. Of course, with only ten episodes of joy this season, I would ask for nothing else. If this season began with anything other than their normal ridiculousness, I would have cried foul.

Instead, this final season of kicked off in fine form, with a hot Chuck and Blair hotel room romp, one very confusing pairing, Serena overdosing on a train (stay classy), and enough one-liners to fill every last crystal bowl in Lily’s Upper East Side mausoleum.

Most of the episode centered on the gang reconvening from their summer adventures to find their loose cannon friend Serena. Minus the cannon. Her mom came home from traveling with Bart only to realize that Serena had not been seen in months. (“How could I have thought it was okay to go all summer without actually talking to my own daughter?” Lily later asked. To which we say, because you’re a horrible mother.)

So of course the gang dropped what they were doing to look for the group flake. Nate had been very busy flirting with a fetus and a carrying around sheets of paper, Blair was flirting with Frenchmen who know her flight preferences, Dan was getting bossed around by a giant GeorGINA, and Chuck was channeling his daddy issues into business.

'Gallery Girls' on Bravo: What is your damage?!

I’ve found my new favorite show to hate-watch (well, I love it but you will definitely maybe hate it): Gallery Girls on Bravo. This grotesque reality TV canvas is like a post-surrealist hybrid of The Hills and Girls — priced at $0 for all you art collectors! — that should probably just be called Bitches. It stars six young snots and one hardworking woman from Long Island who live and “work” in NYC and Brooklyn, which the show treats like a separate country.

Have I lost you yet, or do the two melting clocks in the desert (pictured) have you intrigued? READ FULL STORY

Style Hunter: 'Gossip Girl' Ed Westwick's Adult Onesie

AUGUST 1, UPDATE: Westwick might be in character after all! Chuck Bass wore the One Piece Slim Fit jumpsuit during an episode in season 5 of Gossip Girl.

Spotted: Ed Westwick wearing what can only be described as an adult onesie on the set of Gossip Girl.

Does season 6 kick off with a Chuck Bass extreme makeunder? Considering that the actor was later seen sporting a gray chalk-stripe suit, wingtips, and Bass’ signature bow tie, I’m assuming this was a personal style choice.

Westwick, who made his runway debut at Milan Men’s Fashion Week and posed for designer Philipp Plein’s Spring 2013 ad campaign while on hiatus from the CW series this summer, returned to work in a jersey jumpsuit — (strategically?) unzipped to reveal a patchy thicket of chest hair — from leisurewear company One Piece.

According to the company website; “In 2007 three hung-over Norwegians had the idea to sew together a hooded sweatshirt and a pair of sweatpants, connecting the two with a giant zipper to create the ORIGINAL One Piece.”

Could you pull off the “lifestyle leisurewear?” If you answered yes I strongly encourage you to think again before you click here to buy one.

'Gossip Girl' season finale: OMFGG, we're back where we started

Warning Gossip Girl fans. If you haven’t seen last night’s season finale, then don’t read any more because there will be SPOILERS aplenty. If you’ve seen “The Return of the Ring,” click through. Otherwise, we’ll see you once you’ve gotten crossed all the Xs and Os off your list.


'Gossip Girl' season finale: Will the real Gossip Girl reveal herself?

Now that we know Gossip Girl has been renewed for one final, 11-episode season, it looks like the showrunners will finally have to make up their minds on just about every storyline. If you’ve seen EW’s exclusive clip from tonight’s finale, there are a few things you already know: Blair is doing damage control, she’s hell-bent on destroying Serena, and there’s something she doesn’t want Dan or Chuck to see. Just an average day in the Waldorf domain, right? Here’s what I would like to see happen before the long, steamy summer:

Gossip Girl wreaks havoc: One of the biggest moments of the season was the revelation that the devilish Georgina Sparks was the mastermind behind the salacious titular gossiper…or so we thought. In reality, Georgina was just keeping shop for the real blogger, before passing the reins onto Serena, who, in turn, used her newfound power for her own gain. But now that the original GG is back in the driver’s seat, having stolen back her computer from Serena last week, I’m itching to know how she will exact her revenge. We know that whatever she does is sending Blair into a tailspin, but I can only hope she brings her virtual iron fist down on Serena, revealing herself in the process. READ FULL STORY
