"Gossip Girl" hints on its 2010 preview that all will be a little less complicated in the Upper East Side from here, stating "good things happen to those who wait". The drama is taking Winter break to be back on March 8 with the episode "Jenny, Full of Grace". During January and February, the show will be at rest because "Life Unexpected" is taking its 9/8c slot.
On another news, actor Andrew McCarthy is on board the show to direct an episode airing in Spring. On why he landed the choice of going back to his roots on "Gossip", McCarthy told People, "They [the cast] are much more savvy than we [Brat Pack] were. We were just a bunch of dumb kids running around."
Saying he can't give much on the plot he's directing, McCarthy gave a little hint "Except, there is a '9 1/2 Weeks' kind of thing going on in one story line." The mentioned film is the 1986 drama starring Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger who play wealthy business man and his erotic secret affair respectively.
