Wendell in New Orleans: Ive heard conflicting reports about Michelle Trachtenberg being on the new season of Gossip Girl. Do you know if she will be back?
Im told there has been a little back-and-forth but that so far, M.T. has not been asked back for season two. Michelle herself said: [Josh Schwartz] has told everyone that everyone is coming back and that its going to be like a crazy, wild cast of a million people, so Id love to, I think it will be great fun. Its a character Ive just thoroughly enjoyed...and pretty sexy. Schwartz-love, bring her back so I can practice my Tae-Bo kicks at the screen! Would not be as much fun without someone to boil our blood.
Silas in Tacoma, Wash.: Have you heard this rumor about CW president Dawn Ostroff leaving her job? What does this mean for my fave shows like Gossip Girl?
According to my inside source at the network, there is some truth to the rumor. There have apparently been some talks with potential replacements, and the scuttlebutt is that Ostroff is looking for a new gig. Apparently, one way or another, regime change at the CW is likely to happen sooner rather than later. As for Gossip Girl, fear not. There isn't a chance in Hades any new prez would kill that show.
Marcus in Miami: Any word on Gossip Girl next season?
Hope you are sitting down for this and have a paper bag to breathe into because IÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢m hearing the future is not looking good for Dan and Serena. Gaaahhh! I know, I know, come here and I will hold you. Sources tell me that in season two, Dan and Serena will be up and down and all around and everywhere except happy coupledom. The crazy-good news, though? Bluck or Chair or whatever you want to call them are so on. Apparently, the producers have noticed the crazy-good chemistry that lies within that naughty-by-nature duo, and there'll be much more of them ahead. I'm actually told they will be "the couple" moving forward. (Holler if youre happy in the comments! I will meet you there.)
Sarah in Anacortes, Wash.: OMG! Will Serena hook up with Nate?!
In the season premiere, we'll see that there is a lady in Nate's life, and she's all kinds of trouble, and she's...not Serena. (Or Blair!) More on that in the next Watch With Kristin Show. I'm also hearing there'll be some new characters next season. They're casting for the season premiere as we speak, and Dan has a summer job working for a Norman Mailer type.
