News Roundup: Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek

13 04 2010
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.9 million viewers rounded up) climbed a bit in the ratings compared to last week.
  • Korbi is asking via poll if Blair should have forgiven Chuck.
  • Gossip Cop busted a Perez Hilton/In Touch story about Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) hooking up with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson.
  • The Daily News claims they have more details about the breakup between Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl).
  • You can enter a sweepstakes to win the dress Silver (Jessica Stroup, 90210) wore to the Winter Wonderland dance.
  • Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) will make his return to Smallville on Friday’s episode. Ausiello has an exclusive sneak peek of one of his scenes.
  • Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) has been cast in Southern Discomfort, an ABC pilot. This DOES NOT mean One Tree Hill is canceled or that Bush is abandoning ship. 1) OTH has not been canceled–or renewed. 2) If OTH is renewed, Bush is contractually obligated to do OTH. 3) She is simply preparing herself for what may be a reality. It’s a smart move.
  • Also noteworthy in the short article about the casting is Deadline’s take that OTH has a 50-50 chance at renewal. They also “presume” that it’s OTH versus Life Unexpected, which stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek). The Hollywood Reporter says the shows “are considered to be” in competition.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) won a Genie Award for his acting work in the movie One Week. He reportedly mentioned DC in his acceptance speech. He looks adorable in the photo.

Thanks for clearing the Sophia Bush stuff up, TDW! Also, I’m enjoying Gossip Cop, I may not have found that site without this one, good work with that. I like the stories without the BS.

That’s one of the reasons why I love Sophia. She’s on the top of her game 🙂 Prepared for anything. I’m praying that OTH gets a 10-13 episode pick up that includes a Lucas and Peyton return.

You’re welcome, Cheesy. I’m glad you’re enjoying Gossip Cop!

Wes, this is not to say the other cast members *aren’t* on top of their game. It’s possible they are also auditioning for things and haven’t been cast in anything yet. It’s possible they want to take time off or do movies. It’s possible they don’t know what they want to do next. So while, yes, it’s smart of Sophia to be seeking work in case OTH isn’t renewed and it’s great that she potentially found work (I say potentially because it’s just a pilot right now; it might not get a series order), it doesn’t mean the other cast members aren’t prepared or on top of their game. While I think it’s sweet that you’re praying about Leyton, I hope you aren’t expecting it. There are still no known plans for them to return. Never say never, of course, but I don’t want you to get your hopes up. :-/

Hahaha while reading your reply my hopes just shot way down lol. You were very detailed. I know that there is a chance that things might or might not work out with One Tree Hill with the whole season 8 thing or the Leyton thing but I can’t help but get those hopes up because I’m a hardcore fan of the show but I have to admit that the storylines have been getting a little dull lately eventhough they brought on new characters. I hope that the other cast members are also going to get casted in other projects too because they all are really talented. Especially Joy and Soph. But if the show doesn’t get picked up then I think they should wait until they cancel one of the other shows then replace that time slot with new episodes of OTH (maybe 10 episodes or so) so they can have a proper send off. I don’t know what’s going to happen but I just can’t help but be excited for the next step of the show 😛

I’m a hardcore fan as well. I’m hope it doesn’t seem like I’m not! I definitely understand being excited for the future and having hope that it’ll be a good future. Time will certainly tell.

I don’t know if it’s true what they said about Jessica, but I also don’t know if I believe it.

Flirting, yes, maybe. Anyone might do that. But a “gaggle” of other guys? It just doesn’t make sense if she really cared about Ed.

Rinth, I can confirm that she cheated. Whether it was with a “gaggle” of other guys–i.e., she cheated with more than one person–I don’t know. But she did cheat. Please see my past posts on the subject.
