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

Question: Please give me some scoop about Jenny’s return to Gossip Girl! —Giovanni
Ausiello:
I was right. Jenny reappearance is directly connected to Tim Gunn’s upcoming cameo. Turns out Blair permits her nemesis to return to the scene of her last crime (i.e. Manhattan) just long enough for her to interview for a job with Gunn at Parsons. Without giving too much away, Raccoon Eyes inadvertently gets caught up in Chuck and Blair’s latest drama, and the whole mess comes to a head at (natch) a big fancy party.

Question: I will literally take anything you’ve got on One Tree Hill. —Jasmine
Ausiello:
A major-ish character is going to do some time in the slammer this season. That’s literally all I’ve got.

It seems like Chuck has amnesia in the promos for the Gossip Girl episodes in Paris. Please tell me that isn’t true. — Jill
MICKEY:
It’s more accurate to say that Chuck wants to forget certain things. Mostly though, Gossip Girl‘s petit voyage is inspired by the immortal Spin Doctors, in that there are two princes, both of whom are royally screwed when it comes to their feelings about Blair.

With Annie and Naomi both having other storylines, is Liam going to get lost in the 90210 mix? —Becca
MICKEY:
Liam will have his own troubles, most significantly the lack of a postal address. He gets a job, but quits when he isn’t comfortable with the dress code (or lack thereof). A good Samaritan will then invite him to move into her poolhouse — something that happens with some frequency in Beverly Hills, according to television. So yes, after leaving a job in which he has to take his clothes off, he’ll become a pool boy. Well done, Liam!

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

What you already know: Leighton Meester is going to look stunning in some fabulous new threads in the upcoming season of the CW’s still-addictive Gossip Girl. (How dreamy is that dress above?!)

What you don’t know: What she’ll be doing without those clothes in an upcoming steamy encounter. And I have the exclusive scoop!

Frederick: Gossip Girl. Give it up! Is there any hope for Chuck and Blair? I’m getting really depressed with what I’ve seen for the new season.
I know you Chair fans have been in a funk since May, when Chuck the Basshole did you know what with you know who (for shame!), but I finally have a ray of hope to offer…I can tell you exclusively that Chuck and Blair will have, um, relations, of the bom-chicka-bow-wow kind during the upcoming season. At least, that’s what my sources are saying. Whether they will actually get back together, well…that I cannot say, sorry. But still, that’s a pretty major reason to keep tuning in, right?

Leslie in Carmel, Ind.: Gossip Girl…What can you tell us?
Penn Badgley can sum up the return of your favorite Upper East-Siders: “There’s a baby on the way, which I think everybody already knows anyway. We’re in Paris for a bit. There’s a gunshot wound and there’s another marriage.” Then he laughs. “I think. It’s hard to keep track of the weddings, because they’re all broken up anyway!” So, business as usual then? Indeed. “It’s the same kind of sensational stuff you’ve come to expect, and the change of locale makes it even more gorgeous. More of the same but in an even more heightened capacity,” Penn promises. Hang in there, GG fans. It’s almost time for the season premiere.

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

Question: Some Gossip Girl scoop regarding Rufus and Lily, please. They’re my favorite couple, and we’ve heard nothing about them. —Sly
Ausiello:
A certain rat Bass-tard is going to come between them early in the season—relax, I’m not talking romantically. While Lily is more than willing to forgive Chuck for what happened with Jenny, Rufus is having a harder time moving past it. And just when he finally starts to come around, Eric lets him in on a little secret (hint: It pertains to an ugly incident from the pilot). Cue World War III.

Question: I fell in love with Dan and Vanessa last season on Gossip Girl. Needless to say, Dan’s out-of-nowhere “signs” about Serena in the finale threw me for a loop. Please say Dan and Vanessa aren’t over for good as a couple. —Sarah
Ausiello:
I’m guessing it’s not over, since they move in together in episode 3!

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

Scott in Detroit, Mich.: I totally remember Joe Manganiello, True Blood‘s Alcide, as Brad on How I Met Your Mother! Any chance he’ll make another appearance on the show?
Ew. That flabby schlub? “I would bet money that Brad will be back.” That’s what the ridonkulously hot man himself told us. So what exactly has Brad been up to since we last saw him in the season five premiere? “He revealed he may be a hermaphrodite ’cause he tells Robin, ‘I’m a little different down there,’ So maybe deeper into the mystery of what Brad is,” Joe suggested. “We need to figure out what Brad is. We’re figuring out who the mother is and what exactly Brad is. It’s kind of the b-plot of the show, ‘What is Brad?'” B-plot?! Psh, we’re promoting the Brad mystery to the A-plot. Sorry Ted’s baby mama, we’ve had enough of your drama.

Steph in Austin, TX: Kristin, there’s a rumor that Chuck tries to rape and beat Blair. Can you clear that up for me because if this happens, [Gossip Girl] can shove this show where the sun doesn’t shine. Thanks!
Per my rock-solid source: “LOL. Not true in the least.” So no one needs to shove anything anywhere uncomfortable. Phew!

Sarah in Massapequa, N.Y.: Am I the only person sensing some romantic tension between Aria’s dad Byron (Chad Lowe) and Hanna’s mom Ashley (Laura Leighton) on Pretty Little Liars?
Trust us, you are definitely not the only one catching the pair’s meaningful stares and ever-growing connection, but there might be someone standing in their way when this guiltiest of guilty pleasures returns, and that someone ain’t his estranged wife, Ella (Holly Marie Combs). We caught up with Amanda Schull, aka Byron’s former mistress Meredith, who tells us fans will be seeing more of her in the second half of the season: “As far as I know I will be [back]. I don’t know the details of that but I know that the story line, especially the story lines in the book say I will be.” Well, according to the books she’s around for a (pregnant pause)… long time. Oops, was that too obvious?

Monica: Hi! Any scoop on 90210?
Michael Steger tells us: “I show up in a Ferrari, I got rid of the Lamborghini, so I am driving a new car to school on the first day.” Jessica Lowndes: “My new character is no longer in high school, she’s touring and singing, so there’s a lot more music, which has been a lot of fun.” And Matt Lanter: “There’s always drama, love triangles, I’ve got a half-brother coming in. There’s a big earthquake that happens in episode one, so it kind of affects everybody, it’s kind of fun.” By the way, Matt stars as the Robert Pattison in the new spoof movie Vampires Suck and jokes about his anticipated reaction from Twilight fans: “I got a couple extra deadbolts on my door just as a precaution, but so far, I haven’t needed ’em.”

Notes:

Manganiello played Owen on One Tree Hill.

Leighton played Sophie on Beverly Hills 90210. Schull plays Sara/Katie on One Tree Hill. And Lowe used to be married to Hilary Swank (Carly, Beverly Hills 90210), while Holly Marie Combs starred with Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) on Charmed.

(There are many more connections at play here when you consider the casts of HIMYM, True Blood and PLL, but let’s save it for Six Degrees of Teen Dramas.)

12 08 2010
  • Kristin tweeted that Gossip Girl’s Chuck and Blair are not the subject of her wedding spoiler.
  • Josh Schwartz (executive producer, The O.C.) had tweeted this morning that there is “no truth” to the rumor that Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) has asked to have her character killed so she could leave the show BUT several hours later I saw that the tweet was deleted. When I checked with The CW earlier this week about this rumor, they issued a “no comment.” Interpret as you wish.
  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) will present at the MTV Video Music Awards next month.
  • Badgley did a feature for the launch issue of Bullet magazine, but I don’t believe it’s out yet. There’s a behind-the-scenes video where he talks about the photo shoot and shows off some of his pian0-playing and singing skills.
  • Luke Kleintank (Elliott, Gossip Girl) has been cast on The Young And The Restless.
  • Star News came up with an interesting list of 5 crossover ideas for One Tree Hill.
  • JustJared claims Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) will present the Breakthrough in Green Innovation award to Global Green at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards this weekend. He apparently previously reported that Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) will get the Breakthrough Actress in Film award while AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) will get the Breakthrough Standout Performance award.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted that he will be part of the city of Beverly Hills’ 9.02.10 Day celebrations, and he’s hosting a contest related to it.
  • SoapNet will have a Beverly Hills 90210 “Labor Of Love” marathon on Labor Day with Kelly-Dylan season 3 episodes. I could not be any happier. (Well, I’d be happier it if it was a super-long marathon about their whole relationship over the 10 seasons but…this…is…awesome!)
  • EW.com has a “first look” at Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) on Desperate Housewives.
  • The Associated Press has an article about Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) returning to General Hospital.

  • The One Tree Hill Connection podcast has a brief interview with Steve Goldfried (co-producer, One Tree Hill) about the sticker contest.

  • PopStar has an interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210).
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) directed a music video for a song she wrote and sings called “Myself And I.” Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210) stars in the video, which oddly isn’t mentioned in the article, and also worked on the song.

  • We Love Soaps has an interview with Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Blair (Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl) and Chuck (Ed Westwick, Gossip Girl) may be the subject of this Kristin marriage spoiler. (Yes, One Tree Hill’s Brulian is also pictured, but they don’t fit the criteria since they are already engaged.)
  • Parade.com has a great interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl), where she confirms what I’ve said all along: she is not on Twitter!
  • Szohr is unfairly getting heat for supposedly blowing off a Lollapalooza event while on an all-expenses paid trip. Gossip Cop and I obtained the trip invitation that proves her innocence.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) may star in the film Gravity.
