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

Hi, Matt! I would love all the scoop on my guilty pleasure, ‘Gossip Girl.’ – Amy
All the scoop? Here’s what I heard from lovely EP Stephanie Savage: “Georgina’s baby is Georgina’s baby; it’s not Dorota’s” (as some have speculated); Katie Cassidy’s pop star will “cause a lot of problems for Serena and Blair”; and Chuck may be alive but “we’ll discover that he maybe did not get the best medical care possible when he was found in the alley.” Speaking of Mr. Bass, his new flame Eva (played by French actress Clemence Poesy) is described as “extremely likeable… a little bit of an innocent who gets schooled hard” when she hits NYC – likely at the hands of Blair.

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

Shield your eyes from the devastation at left!

Yes, Gossip Girl has done it again, tearing apart our beloved Chair…all right, that kinda sounded like we were talking about an actual chair, but obviously we’re referring to the CW’s tortured twosome, Chuck and Blair.

And now the inclusion of Bass’ new babe, Clemence Poésy, to whom he is indulging in some serious lip-lockage in gay Paree, has us concerned: Is this a sign of things to come when G.G. returns this fall? Is Bluck a goner?!

We have scoop on all of Gossip Girl‘s Parisian adventures…

Joanie in Utah: So what’s the deal? Chuck and his new girl have been kissing all over Paris, but where are Blair and Serena, and why aren’t she and Chuck still apart?
Ahhh, Gossip Girl and the games they play. First, let us remind you that we should all be rejoicing! Chuck Bass is alive and well after that near-fatal finale. He is seriously rockin’ that cane too, might we add. Now here’s what we can tell you: The bulk of what’s getting out on the interwebs from Gossip Girl‘s shoot in Paris is mainly Chuck and his new gal-pal, and Blair and Serena pushing each other into fountains. But we have it on good authority that B  and C will in fact reunite in the City of Light; there are some discussions to be had. Don’t expect the two to head back to NYC all lovey-dovey, but maybe, just maybe Blair will begin to forgive Chuck for his Jenny-wandering ways.

Megan in South Carolina: Any Gossip Girl fun to pass along?
Looksie at what we found! Daddy-to-be Dan (Penn Badgley) and his apparently back from Haiti girlfriend Vanessa (Jessica Szhor) aren’t taking this potential parenthood thing lightly. After learning he’s going to have a little bundle of joy with that big bundle of joy Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) in the finale, D and V were spotted pushing around a stroller (containing a fake baby—practice makes perfect, right?!) in New York this week. But it’s nice to see these two looking happy, no?

Brynn in Anaheim, Calif.: What’s the situation when 90210 returns?
Adrianna and Navid are still happy as clams?well, kinda. After the budding superstar took off on her summer tour, Navid is having a tough time dealing with a long-distance relationship. Expect things to escalate a bit when school’s back in session and Ade’s not there.

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

Wallace: Any word on whether One Tree Hill or Life Unexpected will get another season?
My sources are telling me it’s most likely that only one will survive, but that it looks like nothing will be announced until the upfronts in New York in May (when the networks announce all their fall schedules). I saw Dawn Ostroff at The Vampire Diaries event Saturday night and wanted to ask, but she slipped into the night all Damon-like. Boo! Oh, and a reminder on Life Unexpected: It moves to 8 p.m. tonight (Monday) on the CW. Check it out if you haven’t yet!

Deirdre: Any scoop on Gossip Girl?
Georgina has found something even bigger than Bible camp: Bleach! When we ran into her in NYC recently, she said this of her upcoming role on GG: “There’s definitely going to be some stalking. There’s gonna be a few changes to Georgina’s appearance, so you’ll have to tune in and see if you can recognize me.” When we guessed she was going blond, M.T. just said, “I don’t know,” but from the looks of this new photo we just nabbed of her, I fear she may be going Single White Female on Serena’s ass. Run for you life, “S”!

Maureen in Boston: You need to give more scoop on One Tree Hill! What’s happening coming up?
I’m hearing Haley is going to go into severe depression following her mom’s death. Sadness.

Rebecca: How about some 90210 scoop please!
Soitenly! I’m hearing that Dixon and Ivy are going to fake-date to make Liam jealous, but Dixon is going to start having some feelings for Ivy. Oh, the tangled web young love can weave!

Exclusive: Amanda Setton Gossips On Penelope and Her One Life To Live Role

18 10 2009

She used to be a gossiping girl but now she only has one life to live.  Punny?  Yes.  But it’s the truth.  Gossip Girl’s Amanda Setton has bid adieu to Penelope and entered the world of daytime soap operas, with a role on One Life to Live.

Check out our interview below to find out what she really thought of Penelope’s gossiping ways, why she can’t stop laughing and her take on those headbands.

TeenDramaWhore: What attracted you to the role of Penelope on Gossip Girl?

Amanda Setton: Penelope seemed like a fun and interesting girl.  A girl who is as far from myself as I could get but yet am so intrigued by.  I figured it would be such a fun experience to not only take on this character herself, but live in this fantastical world of popularity, wealth, and decadence that seemed too delicious to pass up.

TDW: We both grew up on Long Island, where some of the girls–let’s say–have similarities to the Gossip Girl characters.  Was your high school experience like what we see on Gossip Girl?

Setton: Not at all.  I was the vice president of my high school theatre club.  Not exactly  the “coolest” club in school but it was truly my home.  We had the time of our life and didn’t even think about what other people thought of us.  My friend’s and my idea of a fun Saturday night in high school was watching a movie, making some sort of piece of clothing, bag, or jewelry, and watching a movie.  Though they weren’t my friends, there were definitely those around us who possessed similar traits to the Gossip Girl characters.

TDW: If you could change one thing about Penelope, what would it be?

Setton: I actually love her. Personally, I think she’s hilarious in an extremely over the top way.  Her overall sense of entitlement and snarky attitude is just hysterical.  But, if I had to choose one thing, it would definitely be her blatant affection for headbands. 🙂

TDW: We haven’t seen much of Penelope’s family or love life.  What parts of the character would you have liked to see developed more?

Setton: I would have loved to get to know her parents.  How old were they? Where did they come from?  Did they always have money? Does she have any siblings? An older sister, perhaps. Even though I’ve answered all of these questions in my head, I think it would have been interesting for the audience to get more of a window into where she comes from.

TDW: Nothing was mentioned about Penelope going to college.  Will we see her at all this season?

Setton: Since we did graduate from high school and the producers are taking the show into new territory with college, I’m not exactly sure where the mean girls would fit in.  As of right now, we haven’t shot anything yet but who knows what the scripts may bring?  You never know.  All I know is we’ll always have a home there.

TDW: Being from a NYC suburb, did you have the opportunity to experience any of the sights and sounds we see on the show?

Setton: I spent a lot of time in Manhattan during my high school years but in a completely different scene than the one presented on the show.  The NYC parties I attended definitely were not catered with a DJ.  Unless it was a bar or bat mitzvah!

TDW: You just debuted on One Life to Live.  Tell me about your role.

Setton: I play the role of Kimberly Andrews, a stripper from Vegas who comes to help her best friend through some troubled times. Although Kim is a bit manipulative and sneaky, she also has a really compassionate side for those she cares about.  The friendship she has with Stacy Morasco is so real, so authentic, that its nice to see these moments of humanity and vulnerability through an extremely tough skin. Over all, Kim has been such a blast to play.  She cracks me up.  Everyday on set I’m actually laughing out loud.

TDW: What differences do you see between working on a daytime soap and a primetime one?

Setton: Well, Gossip Girl is shot as a single camera show.  Meaning it’s shot like a movie, each week.  Therefore there are a lot more takes and every scene takes a lot more time.  One Life To Live is shot like a sitcom, with up to 4 or 5 cameras shooting at once allowing them to catch every moment from every angle.  They are challenging in their own ways; very different but both very informative.  I learned so much from Gossip Girl and am so happy to have the opportunity to learn more and gain new experience at One Life To Live.

TDW: Do you have any other upcoming projects?

Setton: Not right now.  I’m really focusing on Kim.  She and I have become really close :).

TDW: There are a lot of fake accounts on Twitter for celebrities, particularly the Gossip Girl cast.  Can you confirm whether or not you’re on there?

Setton: I am not on Twitter.

Come back next Sunday for another exclusive interview!
