What do you think?
This isnt me although i seriously wish it was...its just an interesting blog i came across...here's the link to the actual blog along with a picture of the actual girl...enjoy=D In early December, I stumbled upon the Craigslist posting of my dreams. Gossip Girl was looking for extras for Season 3! As an unrepentant fan of the show (especially that oh-so delectable Chuck), I immediately sent in photographs of myself and affirmed that I possessed the "high-end formal wear" the ad listed as a prerequisite. Sure enough, I soon received a call informing me that I was one of the chosen ones. A few days later, I packed up a purple strapless Oscar de la Renta dress, an empire-waisted Gucci gown, four pairs of heels and an armload of accessories and jumped on the ferry to Staten Island where the show was filming at the St. George Theatre, a grand old vaudeville venue which dates back to 1929. I arrived at the Gossip Girl set anticipating a flurry of fashionable glamazons. Twas not so. Many of the extras were dressed in what appeared to be five-year-old ABS and Bebe frocks and were there to further their thespian careers, not to catch a glimpse of my ever-beloved "Gossip Boys." My first scene was on the theater's balcony, where I feigned watching an opera (the cover of my Playbill read Tristan and Isolde; inside, however, it was Wicked). We rehearsed a few times and then the fateful words were spoken: "Bring Chace and Jessica in." I went momentarily deaf after hearing "Chace." As we watched the actors take a rickety lift up to their private box, my heart began to flutter. In true Southern gentleman form, Chace (heretofore referred to as Nate) always followed the "ladies first" rule, taking Vanessa's hand to assist her on and off the lift. The pair joked around comfortably between takes but then shared a somewhat awkward kiss after "Action!" was called. The scene lacked the usual sparkle of GG glamour, perhaps because we could not hear a word of their dialogue, just the slurping kissing noises echoing throughout the theater. Delightful. Vanessa was wearing a deep red velvet brocade dress, which I found a tad frumpy. Why must the stylists punish her wardrobe to further punctuate the point that she is from Brooklyn? [See photos from Day 2 of our Gossip Girl diary HERE] At lunchtime, I found myself lost and hungry inside the theater, unable to spot any fellow extras. Then I heard someone ask, "Where's the food?" It was Vanessa, dressed in an ankle-length black puffer coat (the usual attire for the female stars between takes). A crew member directed her downstairs so I followed suit. Holding my gown up in one hand, my iPod in the other and sporting my favorite gaudy gold headphones, I was inspecting the buffet options when I noticed someone wave at me. I quickly realized the guy summoning me was sitting next to none other than Nate and Chuck! Immediately all the blood in my body rushed to my face and my hands started trembling uncontrollably. The man introduced himself and said they had just been discussing how "rad" my headphones were. To be honest, Nate and Chuck didn't seem particularly impressed, not even making eye contact with me. Nonetheless, it took me an hour to recover from just standing that close to them. Later that day, I was chosen to be in a scene with Dan, Serena, Lily, Rufus and Chuck. This gave me the happy opportunity to do an overwhelming amount of ogling. For this scene, the extras handler paired me with a man older than my grandfather to act as his date. (I guess I was typecast as a gold-digger because this was one of many times I was matched with a man thrice my age.) My favorite bad boy, Chuck, was dressed in a red plaid peacoat and a pair of terrifyingly pointy shoes. I noticed that though he spoke in his native British accent between takes, he always retained his character's signature manly purr. The effervescent
Does anyone know about open casting calls for Gossip Girl? Please tell. thanks
Hi! I like the television show Gossip Girl very much and I was wondering if anyone maybe read the books of Gossip Girl?? I would like to know if the books are interesting and if they're as much fun as the programme on the television?? And does anybody know how many books there exactly are and where I can possibly buy them? Thanks!!
I feel like I have heard this song a million times but I just can't place it. Can some one tell me who the artist is and the name of the song.
In last night's entertaining episode of Gossip Girl , "You've Got Yale" - and this season in general - I've been noticing how in each episode, at least one major character all but disappears with no explanation. This week, Jenny was 100% absent. 2 weeks ago, both Nate and Vanessa were entirely gone. Also this week, Nate and Vanessa had quite minimal screen time - and their storyline was pretty inconsequential to the episode at large. If you think about it, Dan didn't have all too much going on either, besides whining on about Serena not wanting to go to the same college as him and the genesis of some sort of inappropriate student/teacher relationship. Too bad they don't live in Washington state ... And...while there has been way less Nate, Jenny and Vanessa, there has been twice as much Rufus and Lily. So...do you like this style of individual episodes leaving out certain characters to give a greater focus on other ones? Would you rather see every character in every episode...but for slightly less time? Would you rather they toned down the Rufus/Lily grossness? Do you even feel all that much chemistry between them (sorry, but for me they are no Sandy and Kirsten Cohen...)?
SEE PREVIEW I think this is going to be an amazing episode. Why? because they are all amazing. Honestly, I can't think of another show that has been so consistent. Most tv shows take a full season to work out the kinks but GG has been great from episode 1. Discuss! SEE PREVIEW
READ MORE Heyy Gossip Girl Fans! I just want to quickly introduce myself before i start posting; I am a teenager from the North East of England and i love Gossip Girl! I hope to be focusing on the fashion in Gossip Girl and one of my posts planned for you is one that goes through all the episodes and picks out a charactors amazingly fantastic (and credit card aching) outfits...

I hope im not the only one, but while watching this episode i found myself skipping all the rufus-lily bits and alot of the Serena, jenny and eric bits....im a chair fan and was dying to know what jack and blairs secret was, and plus i had read the spoilers about rufus/lily & the serena/dan story was predictable so ther was no point watching those bits! It's not usually like Gossip Girl to leave things secret for more than one episode so they should have really given us the dirty on blair/jack already! And good on Blair for standing up for herself against Chuck...however i hope this isnt the end of chair becasue that would be a shame. Shocked that Chuck didnt realise Jacks intentions earlier...he's clearly not on the ball anymore...i liked the chuck that was always one step ahead of everyone else! Chuck and Blair should team up to exterminate Jack once and for all....it's been ages since chair have worked together to oust someone!
