'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 ...

'The Vampire Diaries'The Parents Television Council is stirring up controversy again -- this time it's targeting the sexualization of teen girls on TV.

According to a Los Angeles Times report, "The results from this report show Tinseltown's eagerness to not only objectify and fetishize young girls, but to sexualize them in such a way that real teens are led to believe their sole value comes from their sexuality," PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement.

Among the shows the PTC examined are 'Two and a Half Men,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Glee' and 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Leighton MeesterCan 'Gossip Girl' go on without Blair? It may have to.

Leighton Meester is ready to leave The CW drama -- in two years. Meester told E! Online she's sticking around, well, "because we're under contract." But, does that mean the series will end when the contracts are up? "I don't know," Meester said, "but I think there's that old saying about wanting to go out on top."

Meester, who can be seen in the upcoming 'Country Strong,' said the show has been flexible with the stars and their movie projects.

The CW series peaked in ratings during its second season, sometimes bringing in more than 3.5 million viewers. Now in its fourth season, the series barely cracks 2.0 million viewers.

'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 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.

'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, Blair tells Chuck it's overCould it really be the end for Chuck and Blair? We don't believe it, not for a second. Those two are made for each other, and we're optimistic that's how it'll play out on 'Gossip Girl' (Mon., 9PM ET on The CW).

And let's face it, Blair wants something that's just not possible, no matter who she's with – "real love, pure and simple love." No love is pure and simple! That's not how it works! Especially not for Blair!

The End of Chuck and Blair on 'Gossip Girl'? (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 6th 2010 4:00AM
Gossip GirlOy vey! In a nod to 'Indecent Proposal,' Blair was all set to sleep with Jack in order to get Chuck's hotel back on 'Gossip Girl' (Mon., 9PM ET on The CW). And she totally would have done it because she loves Chuck.

But is that love misplaced? Blair didn't count on Chuck going behind her back and making a deal with Jack. It's a low blow, but we're pretty sure this isn't the end of Chuck and Blair. They're the dysfunctional heart of this show, after all.

Watch the video after the jump.

'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."
