Spoiler: Ask Ausiello

11 03 2010

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Question: Is Gossip Girl ever going to revisit Blair’s eating disorder? —Lauren
Ausiello:
Yes, but if you blink you’ll likely miss it. Exec producer Stephanie Savage tells me that there’s a “moment” coming up that touches on B’s struggle with bulimia. “It’s very subtle,” she quickly adds. “But for people who are looking for it, they will find it.”

Question: What can you tell me about the Carter’s return on Gossip Girl? —Lucia
Ausiello:
It’s tied to the arrival of Serena’s father (Billy Baldwin).

Question: Anything on Entourage? —Jimmy
Ausiello:
Autumn Reeser’s returning! The O.C. triple threat (gorgeous, talented, loves me) just signed on to reprise her role as junior agent Lizzie Grant for a handful of episodes in season 7. And next week she starts work on the Greg Berlanti-produced ABC pilot No Ordinary Family. Someone’s in demand!

Question: I know you hate One Tree Hill, but do you have any scoop on what’s coming up. —Jessica
Ausiello:
The season finale is currently being shot on location in Utah. And if you have to ask why, you obviously haven’t been watching this season. In related news, can someone please tell me why they’re shooting on location in Utah?
