RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!
This just in: Leighton Meester is the worst gossip giver ever!
We ran into the Gossip Girl goddess at the opening of Klutch nightclub in Miami and she seemed to spill some very big beans on what’s ahead on her CW show:
“Someone is pregnant!”
After searching high and low, near and far, and in every imaginary OB/GYN office on the Upper East Side we have concluded: That mischievous little minx was talking about freaking Dorota. Yes, Dorota! You know, Blair’s hired hand? And this wouldn’t be such a letdown if we didn’t already know this info ages ago when it was revealed on the show.
Nicely played, Leighton. We’ll leave the real gossip-giving to Kristen Bell.
Ashley P. in Illinois: I am so sorry to bother you, but I keep hearing that the CW will cancel Gossip Girl. Do you know what the real deal is? I hope that the show is not getting canceled. This is my favorite show. Please let me know what the truth is.
The CW ordering another year of Gossip Girl is one of the few sure things in this world. Even with that network’s overall ratings troubles, Gossip Girl is a winner for them, both creatively and economically. Don’t worry your pretty little head about it for another minute!
Leigh in New York: I was catching up on Eastwick yesterday morning (I have a thing for Lindsay Price—I can’t describe it) and was startled when it seemed the most recent episode had skipped resolving some major cliffhangers from the previous episode. At the end of the earlier episode, all three girls were about to die, and then at the beginning of the most recent, they had no powers, were all alive and healthy, and were avoiding each other. Do you know what’s up?
OK, we checked with ABC and here’s the deal, but brace yourself, because it’s confusing: The Eastwick episode “Red, Bath & Beyond” was originally scheduled to air Dec. 23, but it was pre-empted for two episodes of Cougar Town. Then the next chapter in the story, “Magic Snow and Creepy Gene,” aired on Dec. 30, without the previous chapter “Red, Bath & Beyond” ever getting airtime on ABC. And the last episode, “Pampered and Tampered,” was originally set to air Jan. 13, but it has been replaced by Ugly Betty, which is now airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Sadly for you Lindsay Price fans, ABC currently does not currently have new air dates planned for the airing of either “Red, Bath & Beyond” or “Pampered and Tampered.” (Don’t they know that Eastwick won our Fall Save One Show poll?!) The two remaining eps of Eastwick may be scheduled at some point in the future, but nothing is nailed down. Sad face. Sorry, guys.
Jackie in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.: When do all the shows come back?! Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy? I can’t make it much longer without them!

amson in New York: Do you know anything about Chuck Bass’ “mom” on Gossip Girl?
I heard it’s a trick by Jack Bass, but then, um, it might not be—or something like that. It sounds confusing and there are definitely a lot of twists and turns, so buckle up! (Especially if you’re in a car with Tripp—anyone else completely over that character? I find myself focusing on his hair gel in scenes, which can’t be a good sign.)
Victor: Who is coming back with Taylor to One Tree Hill? I saw the promo for it and it looks really good.
I’m told by a reliable source that the mystery guy she brings with her is someone’s ex-husband. Thoughts? Bets? Guesses?

I posted last week about the faux spoiler Meester gave.
While I understand where Kristin’s confidence is coming from, I wouldn’t be surprised if The CW throws a curve ball somehow. GG is far from a ratings winner for them. What they have is buzz, both positive and negative but constant. The day that stops is the day they’ll have serious problems with the show. But there’s also only so many slots in their schedule so if Life Unexpected is a success AND they want to add a few pilots in the fall, they’re going to have issues a lot sooner. Something will have to give somewhere, just as I hinted in my Random Thought from yesterday.
Price played Janet on Beverly Hills 90210.
We already know David is the one coming back with Taylor on One Tree Hill, but he’s not Quinn’s ex-husband. They’re still married.
