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

Penny in Ojai, Calif.: Give me the goods on 90210, please.
Annie and Liam will make an attempt at coupledom after they seek Naomi’s permission. Which we hear she gives them both—although, she’s in a terrible state of mind to be making such rash decisions.

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!!!

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.)

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

Jorja in Boise, Idaho: Loved the ScrubsCougar Town casting scoop! Any other stars interested in coming on the show?
Well, Bill Lawrence has asked his cast if they have any friends who want to guest star, and Busy Philipps tells her famous bestie may be on board! “Michelle Williams and I were talking about how hilarious it would be if she came on and played my sister,” she laughs. “I don’t think her agents are going to go for it though.” Um, we are! A Dawson’s Creek reunion is long overdue, don’tcha think? I wonder what that Joey girl is up to?

Benny in Rhode Island: On Gossip Girl, what’s the deal with Serena’s new love interest? Does this mean Serena-Dan and Serena-Nate are over?
I’m told that the Dan-Serena-Nate triangle is definitely not over. The new squeeze is played by Sam Page and he isn’t the kind of guy she usually dates. Thoughts? Which guy are you rooting for?

On 90210, can you say who the guy who is going to come out of the closet is? Will he have a love interest? Also, what’s up with the rapist teacher guy? Is he out?
No, I can’t name the gay character (sorry—I’m glad you asked, but I can’t tell!) but I can tell you he definitely will have a love interest, and actor Kyle Riabko has been cast to fill the tole. As for Mr. Cannon, I’m told he’ll be Silver’s senior advisor. Dun dun dun.

Brandon: Anything else on 90210?
How about an Entourage-ish crossover? Naomi is going throw a crazy-lavish 18th birthday party early in the season and Adrian Grenier‘s band Honey Brothers has officially been named the house band. Pretty cool, huh?

Heather: Anything on True Blood? Will Joe Manganiello be back on One Tree Hill at all?
He told us he’d love to, and he has the space in his schedule, but I’m told there’s no talk right now of him returning, sorry! But at least you get to seen him scantily clad in an upcoming ep of True Blood…Which some of you probably won’t hate.

Zach in Santa Clara, Calif.: What is the deal with the two universes on Fringe and what does it mean for Joshua Jackson that Peter doesn’t have an alternate?
You can file this under no good, very bad news: Josh is only in every other episode. The artist formerly known as Pacey Witter himself told us he isn’t in the season premiere and he’s not in any of the odd-numbered episodes. Blasphemy! Why are the powers that be doing this to us, you ask? We spoke with his co-star Lance Reddick who spilled that, “Every other episode is going to be either one universe or the other. So, they’re going to be alternating universes at least for the first half of the season.” On the bright side, at least Josh now has more time to plan next year’s Pacey-Con, and that upcoming guest stint on The Vampire Diaries.

Notes:

Busy Philipps, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson all starred on Dawson’s Creek as Audrey, Jen and Pacey, respectively. And Joey was played by Katie Holmes.
