I guess it’s “really, really, good” isn’t much of a spoiler. But it’s accurate.
The May 17 Gossip Girl sendoff features big payoffs, several OMG! twists, and a Georgina comeback. Enough, if you ask me, to more than make up for an uneven season. Most importantly, Chuck/Blair fans freaking out over a certain spoiler-laced European trailer that shows the couple nearing third base should simmer down and judge things after watching the entire hour — a sentiment echoed by exec producer Stephanie Savage.
“I really encourage people who have seen that promo to tune in and watch the whole episode in context,” she pleads. “Those were a few moments that were taken out of context to create the most salacious experience possible. And some people who are having a negative reaction to what they’re seeing I think will have a different reaction when they see it in context. Everyone’s making decisions that are reasonable based on the information that they have.”
In other words, Savage and Co. wouldn’t do you, or your faves, wrong. “This is a story that has been three years in the telling — going back to the pilot,” she reminds us. “And that’s a story that we’ll keep telling in season 4. So I don’t think it’s coming out of nowhere. And it lands on everybody. It lands on Dan, Blair, Serena, Rufus, Lily, Nate — every single person has a POV about this, and we’re going to see these ripple effects over time. “
Next Monday’s capper will include a departure, mini time-jump, engagement ring, shooting, birth, and
a pair of spectacular Jenny smackdowns at the hands of Blair.

Two real-life Gossip Girl couples have officially bitten the dust.
Leighton Meester, aka Blair Waldorf, and her two year boyfriend, Sebastian Stan reportedly called it quits. OK! is saying Leighton pulled the plug because she “doesn’t really like” relationships.
Ed Westwick, aka Chuck Bass, and Jessica Szohr also reportedly broke up recently. NY Post is saying he ended the relationship with her over the phone after finding out she cheated on him for over half of the relationship with other men, including with his close friends.
With breakups flaming on the Gossip Girl set, things sure will be awkward on set next season!
According to Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the executive producers who yesterday sought to assuage fears about Chair, there may be feelings that are more than platonic:
“I think one of them may feel that way,” Josh said.
Well, yeah. Gotta be Jenny, right? Stephanie then chimed in with this little tidbit: “We do have a really fun story coming up in this last run of episodes moving toward the season finale.”
Fun for who, though? Doesn’t sound like Serena!
Both these girls have eyes for Nate … but who will win out?
As for another couple some fans have predicted will get together at some point - Vanessa and Rufus – don’t expect that to happen. Even Gossip Girl won’t go there, apparently.
“We understand there are all kinds of couple fans, Nate-Serena fans, Dan-Serena fans, and even Vanessa-Rufus fans,” Schwartz said. but we want everybody to know that they are talked about in the writer’s room all the time, except for the Vanessa-Rufus fans.”
“They’re the only ones who we can tell you are barking up the wrong tree.”
The all new season of the CW hit, Gossip Girl returns to cable TV this Monday, March 8th. After a three month hiatus, the show is back and bigger than ever. If you can’t wait until Monday, you can feast your eyes on the preview clip below!
Fans of “Gossip Girl” will be well annoyed with the network CW due to their decision to shut down for six consecutive weeks, the 3rd season of “Gossip Girl” from January.
After a short stop for the holiday season, will show an episode of “Gossip Girl” on January 11 and then the series will be unavailable until March 8. After his return there will be no more stops and the series must have its season finale aired on 17 or May 24.
According to the BBC, this change is only a strategy to show “Gossip Girl,” without repetition.
* Contains Spoilers
If you’re a fan of the show, and haven’t quite figured out who Gossip Girl is yet, we have a special treat for you. According to a source of ours, Gossip Girl is no other than Georgina Sparks. While we have assumed this for awhile, we were expecting the show’s writters to somehow throw a curve ball and make it someone unexpected, but apparently Georgina is the unexpected. If having sources tied close with show production doesn’t convince you, these reminders may. When the character Eric was about to come out of the closet, Gossip Girl was the only one sent a text message with the evidence, and at dinner Georgina mentioned Eric being gay assuming others had already found out. Georgina also was close to all of the other students to which she wrote about, and had time to write about everyone since she was ‘away at boarding school’. Furthermore, they are able to keep her character alive and ‘in the know’ as Georgina will try to be roomates with Blair in the Fall, allowing her to keep in the gossip. Have you figured out any other dead give aways that GG is none other than Georgina?
Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively is one of the most beautiful television actresses, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have insecurities like the rest of us. Blake confesses to Allure Magazine, on newsstands April 21st that her height and hair often makes her feel less lady like.
“I feel like a tranny a lot of the time,” she said. “I don’t know, I’m … large? They put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”
Outside of being insecure in her work clothes, she often feels the need to censor her actions to not be classified as just another ‘Hollywood Starlet’
“I’m blonde, and I have a small dog, so I try to avoid looking like a piece of bubble gum,” she told Allure.
…then enjoy : )
Gossip Girl’s actress, Leighton Meester was surprised by audience members on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show as they wore party hats and shot silly string on set as a Birthday gift. That takes planning and skills!

Seventeen Magazine was lucky enough to interview the beautiful Ed Westwick recently, where they discussed kissing, guilty pleasures and landscaping.
When was your first kiss?
Um … 6? Well, what are we talking, we’re not talking proper kiss, right? Okay, 6 and … 10. No, is that bad? Should I say 11? I’m pure and innocent.
Scarlett Johansson — she has been for a while, and always will be. I love her style.
What’s a girl fashion trend that confuses you?
None. As long as it’s done the right way, I think it’ll be attractive. It’s not about what it is, it’s about who’s wearing it. From my limited knowledge of women’s fashion, everything is pretty good.
What’s your TV guilty pleasure?
Watching Gossip Girl [laughs]. I can’t stand watching myself on TV. I think I share the opinion of my character that a lot of the audience shares: It’s a “love to hate” kind of thing. As the season’s progressed, I think everyone’s had sympathy for him. I think he’s an alluring character; he’s very interesting. He has these slices of his personality. He can be the devil, but at times he can be very charming. It can be a very dangerous concoction. I think he has a good heart, but his heart is often tempted by corrupt desires.
Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Chace Crawford! No, no. I don’t know. Chace Crawford can play the villain. I’d like to see Daniel Day-Lewis spend three months getting into my character.
What’s your dream job?
Probably landscape gardening. I think gardens are fantastic, and I’d love to draw and design and stuff like that. I love just planting flowers during the summer. There’s something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful. When I need to think of like a peaceful scene or something, I think of my back garden in summertime. And whenever I hear the lawnmower next door, I always think it’s really peaceful.
Who in your family are you closest to?
Oh, I’m close to them all. We’re a really tight-knit group. I have two older brothers. I am the baby. We’re all very, very close. We’re great communicators, so we get along really well.
What’s the fast food you can’t live without?
I can pretty much live without fast food. I haven’t eaten McDonald’s in so long, but it’s okay. I think the McDonald’s in England is a little bit better than it is over here. My favorite thing on the menu is the Happy Meal. It’s just enough.
What’s the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought was probably a phone charger because I left my phone charger somewhere. Actually, I don’t think it was. It was probably chips and dip.
What did you dream about last night?
I can’t remember. I went to the IMAX, though, the other week, and watched The Rolling Stones’ Shine a Light. It like brainwashed me, so I spent the whole night dreaming I was the drummer, but that I didn’t know any of the songs!
How much money is in your wallet right now?
I don’t have a wallet.
