Gossip Girl- Despicable B

Published

on

“Maybe you’re so focused on how everyone perceives you that you no longer know who you are. Too bad cause if you could only see what I see.”

Despicable B, last nights episode of Gossip Girl, was just that: despicable. Not just for B, but for every character raised in the glory of the Upper East Side. The episode had some more shocking paternal revelations but it also showed us how nasty people from the Upper East Side can get, even to their own family. Slow and steady wins the race and it seems the humble characters like Rufus, Lola and Dan are the ones coming up on top lately.


The destruction and failure of Lily and Rufus’s marriage can only be blamed on the Lily’s self centered actions. It is utterly disgusting to watch her assume she wears the pants in the relationship because she has more money than he does. That comment about him not being able to find another rich Upper East Side woman to take care of him the way that she does literally crossed the line. If I was Rufus I would have spit in her face and served her the divorce papers right than and there. Lesson learned, rather be poor than with an Upper East Side brat. Its not a surprise that she has been divorced a total of 10 times. Under that sweet Lily cover up is a monster. And that monster had no problem working with Charlie to bring “justice” to her family. But recently Charlie, or should I say Ivy, has been getting a little too close to wanting them to be a family. What poor girl would rip up a check for that much money if she didn’t have any other (possibly psycho) ulterior motives?


But it must be in their genes because Lily’s sister is not any better. Nevertheless seeing Carol get arrested by her own sister was hard to watch. It was even harder to fathom that in the crucial state she was in, William still left her penniless after convincing her to sign her share over to him. She truly believed that William was a good person and would help her and Ivy and although he might still help Ivy, I doubt she will ever see that money again. Thats the thing with William. He pretends to be altruistic but he is on sneaky snake. I assume thats where his two daughters get the fakeness from. Its common sense that he wouldn’t trust Lily with the money or with ensuring Lola a future, but to make a run for it? Is he going to skip out on Lola and prove to her that she was really better off not knowing any of them?? Its interesting to see their father-daughter relationship play out, especially since he kept himself so hidden from Serena. Even when she tried to find him, he dodged each and every one of her attempts at finding him. 

In an exchange of roles, Lola actually wants to unite with Serena and become “sisters.” It was just not long ago that Lola shunned every attempt that Serena made at making them cousins. Now its Serena’s turn at shunning Lola out of her life. It must be hard finally getting a father after so many years only to have him stolen by a girl much more talented and prettier than you. But Lola has earned her spot in the family proving that she will do anything to get her revenge, even going as far as stealing the Gossip Girl login from Serena. Maybe she belongs on the Upper East Side after all. She is a Van der woodsen after all…

Speaking of role reversal… Who would have guessed that Dan would be on top of the social ladder (or that he would become high brow) while Blair is being viewed as more pathetic than Kim Kardashian?? Yet to me it isn’t that much of a surprise since recently Blair has gone to such pathetic lengths to get noticed and get her spotlight back. Stealing Dan’s spotlight was by far the lowest blow ever. Its understandable that in the midst of everything she feels like she is a shadow behind her boyfriends, but maybe its just because she can’t seem to decide who she loves making it hard for her to understand her place in society. Maybe by finding Blair an activity again she can find herself. Without scheming Blair becomes the worst version of herself and its surprising that Dan is still putting up with her bipolar swings. Its unfortunate that the writers took such a strong, smart, mischievous and powerful character and made her weak and annoying. We all loose ourselves occasionally, its understandable, but come on!

Chucks “who are my parents” storyline is getting a little played out. The Bass family is pro at committing sins. The writers threw us a great curve ball when they took the focus off of Diana and changed the game up. It makes perfect sense that Jack Bass is Chuck’s father but who is the mother????? Why would Bart Bass adopt and take care of Chuck until he died? Sure, Jack isn’t the man you think of when you hear father of the year, but why keep it such a secret? And why is the identity of his mother so secretive? My theory is that they pulled a Van der Woodsen move and Jack accidentally knocked up Elizabeth (Bart’s wife) and than left Bart to raise the kid while he was “crazy uncle Jack.” But that brings us back to Diana. Where does she fit in all of this and why is everyone willing to sponsor her? First it was grandfather and now she’s getting money from the Jack. Are they trying to keep her quiet? I mean Gossip Girl did say there was another secret… Poor Chuck, everyone is just playing with his emotions. Can the man get some truth around here!

‘Gossip Girls’ Lily and Rufus Actually Dating?

Published

on

Before I get into this new dating scoop, I’m going to tell all of my Gossip Girl fanatics and Upper East Sider’s to take a deep breathe. You ready? Okay.

Lily and Rufus may be dating in real life!!!

They might not have ended up together in the show, but they seem to be getting another chance.

It’s rumored the actors that portrayed Serena and Dan’s parents–Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle– are an item.


The hashtag “Lily and Rufus” became a trending topic on Twitter last night.

So, what sparked these rumors? Instagram. Turns out, these two are pretty fond of each other… and their both single.

And if that isn’t enough…. Settle posted a pic of him and Rutherford with the caption, “Happy Valentines,” with the hashtag ‘Settleford.’

And most recently, Feb 20th to be exact, he added a picture of a chess board, tagging Rutherford and adding the caption, “Things are never black and white.”

So, are they or aren’t they?

I say yes. And that may be the best news I’ve heard all day!

The picture is a gorgeous reveal, taken by her brother Eric Lively. She’s beaming down and cradling her tummy, surrounded by the sunset.

Lively has been very vocal about  wanting a big family, ever since marrying Reynolds in 2012. “I gotta get started,” she told Marie Claire in its September 2014 issue. “If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.”

She’s also gushed about what a great father Reynolds would be, adding, “The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there.”

Lively and Reynolds met in 2010 on the set of The Green Lantern and married in 2011. Reynolds was previously married to actress Scarlett Johannson, who welcomed her first child, Rose, with her fiance earlier this year.

Check out more pictures of the baby bump

Lively seems genuinely happy and committed to this relationship, so no doubt, she will be the cutest pregnant woman. And her child, will be gorgeous!  Gossip Girl will really have something to write about now– Serena’s little baby bump. Xo Xo.

What do you think? Boy or Girl? It’s never too early to start placing bets!

Blake Lively Takes Over Vogue’s Twitter- Reflects on GG

Published

on

Gossip Girl here!

Blake Lively took over Vogue’s twitter on Monday Aug 4 and gave fans the answers to all their questions! It seems that ever since GG, Lively hasn’t been able to stay away from blogging and tweeting. 
One thing Lively admitted was that she would love the share the screen with hubby Ryan Reynolds again. The duo famously fell in love after co-starring in 2011’s The Green Lantern. 

When a fan asked if she would do another movie with her husband of nearly two years, Lively responded, “”In the olden days, a couple could be in every movie together, but it’s just not like that anymore. We both wish we could go back to then, because that would be a lot of fun.”

There were also questions about Gossip Girl… obviously. One fan asked if she missed her role as NY socialite Serena van der Woodsen. Lively tweeted back saying, “”I miss the people that I worked with, our cast and our crew. But I don’t miss the 16-hour days.”

One of Lively’s favorite seasons to shoot was the first one. Think 2007. “It was the 1st year I lived in New York City and what a way to live in NY,” she explained. “It was very special and surreal.”

Lively also took the time to explain her participation in the Beyonce and Jay-Z “On the Run” tour promotion video. “It was the first moment in my life where I truly felt cool,” she tweeted. “It gave me a high sense of self-esteem for a good 10 min.”

Lively is currently working on her lifestyle website Preserve. But we’re secretly hoping she gets back to the big– or small– screen very soon. And we wouldn’t mind if it was with her dashing husband.
