'Gossip Girl' finale recap: Big developments (and letdowns)

Gossip-Girl-Blair_320.jpg Image Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CW Much like grief, I dealt with last night’s Gossip Girl season finale in stages. First, I was flummoxed. Oh, the twists and scandals! Then, I was angry and annoyed… I’ll let you know what comes next when I get there. It’s safe to say I’m on the fence, but let’s take a closer look. [Seriously, stop reading now if you haven't watched the show yet.] READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: You can't 'Affair to Remember' me!

Gossip-Girl-finaleImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWFor a second — hell, for much this season — I thought the group of Upper East Siders I’d come to love for their collaborative scheming was gone forever, lost in a world of individual plots that kept me entertained but failed to thrill as they once did. But after “Ex-Husbands and Wives,” I can gladly say, welcome back, “*itches.” READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' is headed to Paris. Oh là là!

gossip-girl-parisImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CW; Manuel Cohen/Getty ImagesGossip Girl has always been a show primarily set on the East Coast — the furthest it has traveled so far has been to the Hamptons. But now Serena and Blair are headed to the City of Lights! Yes, the gals are jetting off to Paris for two episodes in season 4, according to New York Magazine. I don’t know what you think, PopWatchers, but the mere thought of seeing these two ladies on the streets of Paris sounds like a dream to me. Just think of the fashion (not to mention the cute French boys)! Could this even rival Sex and the City‘s Parisian episodes in terms of couture? Note to GG stylist Eric Daman: I want to see Blair in a dress equivalent to Carrie Bradshaw’s multi-layered Versace gown — and will settle for no less!

What do you think about Gossip Girl traveling to Paris, PopWatchers? Is it a good idea? Or do you prefer GG to stay in the Big Apple?

'Gossip Girl' recap: Chuck and Blair save each other... and the episode

Gossip-Girl-Dad-WorldImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWHope is on the horizon, Gossip gang! We learned one half of our least favorite pair is headed for Haiti, Chuck and Blair were possibly on the mend, and little Jenny Humphrey got a taste of her own bitter medicine (not literally, because her stuff gives you yeast infections apparently). Allow me to explain by dipping into my (faux) mailbox. Spoilers for last night’s Gossip Girl, right ahead! READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: Father knows (how to lie) best

Gossip-Girl-Dr-BaldwinImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWGossip gang, there is finally proof to all the things we’ve been saying for weeks: Chuck and Blair proved they’re  the most watchable couple on the CW — even when technically “broken up.” Lily proved she might be the only person on TV who lies more than Chuck and Blair combined. Dan got proof from an outside source (thanks, Willa) that his sister dresses like a slut. And Jenny proved why she does. There’s the quick of it. I will now open the floor to (totally fabricated) questions and provide to you honest, albeit not completely serious, answers. Let the fun begin. READ FULL STORY

Chace Crawford out of 'Footloose': Who should replace him?

footlooseImage Credit: Jamie McCarthy/WireImage.com; Anna Webber/WireImage.comTurns out Chace Crawford, like Zac Efron before him, will not be cutting Footloose after all. As EW reported yesterday, the Gossip Girl cutie has a scheduling conflict with the increasingly troubled remake, which is set to start shooting this summer — the same time he is set to be in production on his CW show. Julianne Hough is still set as the female lead, but the script has been rewritten by Hustle & Flow‘s Craig Brewer and is director-less after This Is It‘s Kenny Ortega dropped out. All of that said, the show must go on, and those wildly unrealistic gymnastic-dance sequences in warehouses aren’t going to do themselves. This thing needs a Kevin Bacon.

The studio behind the movie, Paramount, is looking to fill the role with an unknown, even considering a nationwide cast call. But we’ll ignore that for the moment and think up some at-least-a-little-knowns we’d like to see in Ren McCormick’s shoes. Maybe Glee‘s Cory Monteith could save this poor town from lack of dancing? A lesser-known Gossip Girl player like soon-to-be Captain America co-star Sebastian Stan, who started his career singing, dancing, and acting at summer camp? Or maybe Zac Efron will reconsider now that he’s put some distance between this and High School Musical?

What do you think, PopWatchers?

'Gossip Girl' recap: How much Dorota is too much Dorota?

Gossip-Girl-weddingImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWLadies and gentlemen, with last night’s episode, we’ve officially hit Def Con 5 on Dorota Saturation Alert. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Polish maid — I mean, I’ve found her so charming right from the very start. But that was when she had, like, one great line and would skamper away, never to be heard from until next week… or even the week after. She was a nice, little apron-wearing surprise. That time is over. Dorota has basically become one of the female leads on the show (she might as well be carrying around a Louis Vuitton dustpan and LG phone), and it just doesn’t work. Last night’s Dorota/Vanya wedding fandango only proves that point, sadly. READ FULL STORY

'Glee' star Cory Monteith, 'Melrose' actress Katie Cassidy join the 'Monte Carlo' teen dream team

monteith-cassidyImage Credit: Chris Hatcher/PR Photos; PRN/PR PhotosWhen I saw this bit of casting news this morning, I sent an email to a few pals with a clip and the subject line of: “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Glee‘s Cory Monteith and Melrose Place‘s Katie Cassidy are set to join the cast of Monte Carlo, which already has both Wizards of Waverly Place‘s Selena Gomez and Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester on board, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (On a non-teen-happy side note, Andie MacDowell also stars.) Is there any other more teeny teensplosion out there right now?

Monte Carlo is an adaptation of Headhunters by Jules Bass and centers on a young gal (Gomez) who’s mistaken for a socialite. It’s being called a “teen adventure movie,” mostly because a million-dollar necklace goes missing. The girls must put their heads together to find it! Cassidy joins Meester as a friend to Gomez’s character. Monteith, meanwhile, plays Gomez’s football-playing boyfriend. MacDowell, who as you might realize is not a teen dream, is the mother in the situation.

Despite the somewhat wacky and simple-sounding logline, the cast sounds phenomenal. It’s sort of like how I feel about the upcoming Burlesque with Cher, Kristen Bell, and Christina Aguilera — I don’t really care what it’s about, just give me all my favorite people together! You agree, PopWatchers?

'Gossip Girl' recap: Chuck and Blair's indecent proposal proves disastrous

Ed-Westwick-Gossip-Girl_240.jpg  Image Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWIt’s been a rough couple of weeks for us Gossip Girl fans, but last night’s episode definitely had moments that felt like classic GG… except for the ridiculous Assassins subplot which I’ll get to later.

So I guess it’s safe to say Chuck and Blair never saw Indecent Proposal because otherwise they’d realize what a mistake it is to have significant other sleep with a creep. I remember it being quite difficult on Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson (although my main memory of that movie was Demi and Woody have sex in a bed full of money and just being concerned for both paper cuts and the cleanliness of those bills).  READ FULL STORY

'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl,' and 'Twilight' stars glam-up Walmart Op ads

Dianna-Agron-Cory-MonteithWalmart revealed its new ads for the spring collection of its California-cool line, Op, and their campaigns are best described as Abercrombie and Fitch + celebrities – $$$ – the nudity. Judging by this year’s campaign stars, I’d say it’s quite the step up in star wattage from last year’s ad. Brody Jenner — enough said.

But this year’s lineup includes Glee‘s Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron along with Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr and Twilight‘s Alex Meraz. To fulfill the 90210 quota held last year by AnnaLynne McCord is Trevor Donovan. Now that’s an ad campaign I can get behind!

But, is it just me, or are some of these shots a bit racy for the mass market chain? Hello, Maxim! Either way, thank you, photographer, for awkward gems like this.

What do you think of the star-studded ads? And who else wishes Donovan was holding them up on that surfboard?
