'Gossip Girl': 10 Things to Know About the 100th Episode & More

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 21st 2011 6:00PM
gossip girl 100th episode Spotted: Manhattan's favorite Upper East Siders (and Brooklynites) celebrating the 100th episode of 'Gossip Girl' at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York. As always, it was a fashionable affair for the cast -- Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chase Crawford and Ed Westwick were all on hand -- but the real guest of honor, according to executive producer Josh Schwartz? The celebratory cake!

"We've talked about the cake for a long, long time," Schwartz told AOL TV. "'The OC' went to 93 or 92 episodes, so we were close but no cake. It's really a testament to Stephanie [Savage] and her leadership, guiding the show to 100 episodes. We birthed it, but Stephanie's really raised this child. I just send an alimony check."

But it wasn't all cake talk. The cast also teased the highly anticipated 100th episode, and all we can say is OMG! Orgies, dance sequences, a royal wedding and a potential runaway bride? This is one episode you can't miss. And from what we hear, the first 10 minutes see the entire cast doing something they've never done before.

What can it be? Let the gossip commence ...

Blake Lively Tells Jay Leno About Swimming With Great White Sharks (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 16th 2011 6:25AM
Blake Lively and Jay LenoBlake Lively stopped by 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) to promote her new movie, 'The Green Lantern,' and she revealed an unexpectedly adventurous side to her personality.

On vacation, someone suggested she give swimming with sharks a go. Lively's initial reaction? "I'm terrified of sharks. Sounds like a horrible idea. Let's do it! ... So, I went cage-diving with Great White Sharks!"

From what Lively said, it's a pretty gruesome experience. The guides attract sharks to the cage by throwing blood and fish guts into the water. The divers jump in and start to swim in the cage amidst all that gore. And then lots of sharks turn up and start biting at the cage.

"It's like everything you never wanted to happen, is happening." Happily for Lively, though, she can see the positive side, and thinks that although the experience was terrifying at first, it's also kind of beautiful.

'Saturday Night Live' Delivers a Tribute to ... Having Sex, With Jessica Alba and Blake Lively (VIDEO)

'Saturday Night Live' Delivers a Tribute to ... Having Sex, With Jessica Alba and Blake LivelyHaving sex! Most people seem to enjoy it. But can you express your love of having sex in lyrical form? 'Saturday Night Live' can.

On the new episode (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC), Andy Samberg (and 'Lonely Island' co-star Jorma Taccone) delivered a serenade to something that didn't need serenading in the first place. After all, most people don't have to be won over to the idea of having sex. Still, Andy and Jorma tried it anyway.

They brought in a star-studded cast to help, including rapper Akon, as well as Jessica Alba and Blake Lively -- who played Andy and Jorma's completely-non-satisfied sexual partners. The song began well, as Andy bragged of his recent performance in the bedroom: "Have you ever had sex?" he sang. "I have/ It felt great. It felt so good/ When I did it with my penis." But things quickly went downhill from there ...

'Gossip Girl' -- Rumors, Lies, and Swapping Sex for a Better GradeThe privileged sexy teens on 'Gossip Girl' (Mon., 9PM ET on CW) expect nothing less than the very best. And Columbia University is the best -- and only -- Ivy League school in New York City. So if Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) gets kicked out of the college ... well, that just wouldn't be okay, now would it?

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

But when a fake email is sent out, Serena finds herself in danger of losing her place at Columbia. The email is sent from Serena's private account, and is written in her name. In the message, the fake "Serena" propositions one of her professors, offering a swap of sex for better grades.

Blake Lively's role as a 37-year-old drug-dealing mother in the crime thriller 'The Town' couldn't be further removed from her stint on 'Gossip Girl.' And, she said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated), that was precisely the idea.

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester['Gossip Girl' - 'Belles De Jour']

Welcome back to a scandalous new season on the Upper East Side, mes amies -- I hope you're not of a nervous disposition, because 'Gossip Girl' has no shortage of "Oh mon dieu!" moments in its premiere episode.

For those tired of that iconic Manhattan skyline, Serena and Blair have offered us an enviable change of scenery; but while the geography has changed, the song remains the same.

Poor B is still pining for a certain Basstard, unable to enjoy the many Parisian delights that the City of Love has to offer, while S is sampling all of the local dishes -- from dreamy barmen to any hunk on a Vespa -- in an attempt to forget about her Nate/Dan dilemma back in NYC.

Blake Lively Wants to Leave 'Gossip Girl'?

by Chris Jordan, posted Aug 12th 2010 4:30PM
There's some juicy gossip coming from the set of the CW hit 'Gossip Girl,' and it might portend a major casting change. Star Blake Lively wants out, according to a report from Britain's Heat magazine.

The report, via Showbiz Spy, cites various reasons for her intended departure, her working relationship with boyfriend and fellow cast member Penn Badgley notwithstanding.

"She's tired of working on the show,'' said a source. "It was great at the beginning, but she's started to get bored of her storylines and all the petty fights on set. Nearly all the cast members have had some kind of bust-up. Besides the fact that she gets to work with her boyfriend, Blake wants to leave."

'Gossip Girl' - 'The Unblairable Lightness of Being' Recap

(S03E18) "You can have the prize - I'm sure you'll know what to do with five women with removable heads." Blair to Chuck.

Oh, what tangled webs those Upper East Siders weave; we can always count on 'Gossip Girl' to squeeze a scandal out of any special occasion, which, this week, happened to be Dorota's shotgun wedding.

Turns out that Mommy and Daddy Dorota are the traditional types, and their plans for an impromptu visit to the Big Apple to see their daughter seem to necessitate some immediate (and lavish) nuptials -- what better way to distract ma and pa from the fact that their little angel has been sneakily hiding her pregnancy from them, like any self-respecting career girl?

'Gossip Girl' - 'Inglorious Bassterds' Recap

Gossip Girl(S03E17) "He is sitting down with Satan this morning." - Blair about Chuck

Mark your calendars, everyone, because all the teen/tweens of the show were in the same building at the same time! That even includes Eric, who finally returned to the show.

But that wasn't the important event of the episode. Actually, Nate's birthday party and Vanessa and Dan's relationship problems were only filler when compared to what happened between Satan Jack, Chuck and Blair. "Oh. My God." is all I can say about the twists and turns of this storyline!

Gossip Girl(S03E16) "I'm a firm believer in second chances." - Eleanor

I'm a believer in second chances, as well, but some people don't deserve second chances. Where 'Gossip Girl' is concerned, two of these people are Jack and Agnes. Both are bad news and only bring pain to our favorite characters.

Thankfully, the show brought back two beloved recurring characters that bring some balance to the dark side brought by Agnes and Jack: Eleanor and Dorota. How long has it been since we last saw those two? Long enough for Eleanor to have a complete new line of clothes ready to show the world and for Dorota to be ready to pop!

(S03E15) "Rufus is driving Jenny right into Damien's creepy arms." - Serena to Nate

This week's Jenny-centric episode made me notice how I missed seeing the entire gang working together towards a common goal. However, Chuck and Blair were left on the sidelines since he was occupied by Jack, Elizabeth, a lawsuit and a boycott.

No matter, it was refreshing to see Serena, Nate, Dan, Vanessa, Lily and Rufus all work hand in hand in order to locate Jenny and bring her back to safety -- location also known as "the loft where Jenny will be grounded for life."

Gossip Girl(S03E13) "Time changes everything." - Gossip Girl

It seems like a season ago when we last saw our favorite Upper Eastsiders, no? The last new episode aired on December 7, which was three months ago! That's as long as we have to wait between a season finale and a season premiere!!! Our patience will be rewarded with ten consecutive weeks of fresh episodes!

'The Debarted' may have aired a lifetime ago, and if you missed the recap at the beginning of the episode, you may not remember much of what happened. Well, maybe except that jaw-dropping moment near the end where Chuck finds an unidentified woman at Bart's grave. Is she his mother?

Review: Gossip Girl - The Debarted

Gossip Girl(S03E12) "I know today is the anniversary of his death." - Blair to Chuck

As Ryan said in comments to last week's post, "The Treasure of Serena Madre" would've been a great last episode of 2009 with all of the drama and excitement it contained, as well as the few cliffhangers. However, The CW decided otherwise and aired one more episode before the show goes on hiatus.

Now that I've seen "The Debarted," I agree with Ryan. The network should have ended 2009 with "The Treasure of Serena Madre" and air this week's installment in January as the sole new episode before the Olympics since it also ended with a few cliffhangers. Don't you agree?
