'Gossip Girl' season premiere: [Spoiler!] is expecting. Who do you want the father to be?

Okay, Gossip Girl affectionados. If you missed tonight’s season premiere then read ahead at your own risk because there’s a BIG SPOILER ahead.


PopWatch Confessional: What combination of TV and movie characters best represents you?


Even though I don’t use my Facebook much anymore, I do have one. Thus, it’s no secret that I spend a fair amount of time thinking about how others perceive me. (I’m not ashamed.) But this weekend, while reading the latest EW Summer Movie Math post, I starting thinking about how I perceive myself — in movie math terms.

We all relate to different aspects of our favorite characters on TV and in movies, but it’s a whole other (very time-consuming) game when you try to calculate your personal movie math — which, for these purposes, we’ll call Character Math. It took me two days of sporadic thought to come up with something satisfactory. Here’s what I concluded (share yours, too, so I’m not the only painfully self-absorbed person here!):  READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' poll: Which man is Blair's best match?

I’ve always wanted to have Blair Waldorf’s problems. (Which fabulous dress should I wear today? Which of my fabulous futures should I pursue? There are too many macaroons!) But this has never been more true than right now. Presently, Queen B finds her heart torn into three pieces: One belongs to a Bass-hat, another to a prince, and another to Dan Hump-free.

Now, this has been a position of great debate in the Gossip world, so I figured it’s best if we put this to a vote. Let’s break down her choices:

This week's cover: How 'Glee' is leading TV's gay-teen revolution

ew-cover-1139Gay teens are suddenly popping up in major roles all over television, with Glee’s popular pairing of Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) leading the way. How did gay teens go from marginalized outcasts and goofy sidekicks to some of the highest profile — and most beloved — characters on the likes of 90210, Pretty Little Liars, and Skins? And more importantly, how is this affecting real-life teens still facing the daily high-school realities of bullying, discrimination, and ignorance? The new issue of Entertainment Weekly investigates the history of gay teens on TV — from the angsty Rickie on My So-Called Life to sensitive-soul Jack on Dawson’s Creek to the slew of groundbreaking characters on Degrassi. We talk to the producers who fought for such progress, the actors who held the career-defining roles, and the activists who cheer recent advances — but are still pushing for more. Among them: READ FULL STORY

Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic: Most handsome male cast ever?

Hoover-biopic-castNow that Josh Lucas is in talks to star in J. Edgar, the Clint Eastwood-directed Hoover biopic, the film is shaping up to be the most handsome movie of all time. In the film, Lucas would play aviator Charles Lindbergh alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character, Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick as the clean-cut Agent Smith, and The Social Network‘s Winklevoss wonder Armie Hammer as Hoover’s supposed secret lover Clyde Tolson. Mr. Eastwood, this is how you get movie attendance up!

If you break it down, I’d like to think each offers varying degrees of attractiveness: READ FULL STORY

Today's lacrosse star, tomorrow's CW character

gossip-girlImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWIt may not be as big as the Oscar nominations (or even the Razzies), but today’s unveiling of Inside Lacrosse Magazine‘s 2011 All-Name Team (which playfully compiles the most blue-blooded names of real-life college lacrosse players) will be closely analyzed by any TV writer who wants to get his pet project on The CW. After all, you can’t just stuff your hip new teen pilot with the same ol’ Liams, Clays, and Stefans. For mentally blocked writers, then, this list of the preppiest lacrosse-ey sounding names is a welcome cheat-sheet: You could fill up the network’s entire fall slate with the likes of Caldwell, Baxter, and oooooo … Brogan! That is the name of a Vampire Diaries recurring character if there ever was one. Check out the entire first-team after the jump: READ FULL STORY

It's Shake 'N Bake, and 3-year-old Taylor Momsen helped... without raccoon eyes

I’m so accustomed to seeing Taylor Momsen as a teen angst-ridden, raccoon-eyed actress, that I admittedly have forgotten that she was an incredibly cute little kid. In the days before Little J started scheming against Blair & Co., on Gossip Girl, little Momsen starred in commercials, including this highly adorable Shake ‘N Bake ad. So before tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl, enjoy this video of Momsen, in which the scariest thing in the video isn’t seeing a 17-year-old girl in lingerie, but rather the freakishly unnatural sound of chicken crunching as it’s first bitten into.

Before you can ask yourself how this little moppet hocking Shake ‘N Bake transformed into this generation’s bleach blond Elvira, Momsen recently spoke out against her parents, saying that they robbed her of her childhood. (Her parents signed her up with Ford modeling agency at age two — she’s three in this commercial — and since then, “I didn’t have friends. I was working constantly, and I didn’t have a life,” Momsen said.)

What do you think about little Taylor Momsen, PopWatchers? Does anyone else remember this commercial? READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl': Blake Lively and Penn Badgley break up: OMG will the show be the same?

Gossip-Girl-Break-UpSpotted: Dark clouds hovering over Manhattan as Lonely Boy and S go their separate ways. Cue the sounds of dexterous teens and twentysomethings texting away: OMG Blake and Penn broke up! Le sigh, PopWatchers. If these two can’t make it, is there any hope for us mortals?

Reps for both Blake Lively and Penn Badgley confirmed to People that the couple has ended their nearly three-year relationship in September (See: Happier times). Will Blake Lively cover up her signature cleavage in mourning? They’re both young, attractive, and rich, so sure, they’ll bounce back, but doesn’t an extra little piece of you die inside at the thought that Gossip Girl may never be the same? READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' exclusive clip: Blair gets attacked by [spoiler]!

Any Gossip Girl fan knows of Blair Waldorf’s fondness for Audrey Hepburn and her repeated Hepburn dreams. “It was in the books that she was obsessed with Audrey Hepburn and there was also a part of the books that described how she was trying to live in the movie version of her life but things never quite lined up,” explains executive producer Stephanie Savage. “So we sort of combined those two elements to give her these signature dreams where she was trying to have these perfect Audrey Hepburn moments, but her subconscious always intruded.” Tonight’s dream includes a literal intruder in the form of a masked attacker, an homage to 1967’s Wait Until Dark. Savage says it’s an omen of bad things to come. “It’s kind of Blair’s sixth sense kicking in to warn her that something is afoot,” says Savage. “The last thing we saw Chuck do was make a call potentially summoning Jenny Humphrey to town. We always joked in the writer’s room of Blair’s sixth sense that she could literally, like, smell when Jenny Humphrey was back in Manhattan. We kind of used that heightened notion as a way of kicking off the episode.”Does this mean Little J is back for good? Says Savage, “I’d rather leave it open ended, but this is her re-introduction to Gossip Girl this season.”

And what else is in store for tonight’s GG? For one, a plethora of NYC-friendly cameos and locations. Says Savage, “In our episode, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are hosting a New York Observer event that Tim Gunn and Isaac Mizrahi, among others, are being honored at and they’re all there. We actually shot on the top of The Standard Hotel in The Boom Boom Room. We’re the first people who ever shot up there.”

Watch below for an exclusive look at tonight’s GG opening and for the show’s first-ever Hepburn-inspired dream sequence. READ FULL STORY
