Is Gossip Girl A Total Copy Cat?

Friday 8:13 PM, 21/10/2011
Penn Badgley's character, Dan Humphrey, started out as a quiet loner... Just like Benjamin McKenzie's character, Ryan, did! Blake Lively's role as Serena van der Woodsen made her famous. And so did Mischa Barton's role as Marissa Cooper! Both girl's characters are young, rich, and troubled but they get saved by the "lonely boy." Blair was against Serena and Dan's relationship at first, but Leighton Meester's character later on changed her mind and even hooked up with him herself! Rachel Bilson was perfect as Summer Roberts. She too was against her friends relationship at first. Chace Crawford is the American dream in Gossip Girl. He hated Dan but now they're best friends! And Luke, played by Chris Carmack, is the O.C's "Nate." Remember how Luke couldn't stand Ryan at first? Not to forget, lonely boy's childhood friend, a dark beauty who wants to be more than friends. Jessica Szohr was Gossip Girl's version! And Navi Rawat's, Theresa, was the friend in The O.C.!
We love Gossip Girl, all the characters, the clothes and the drama! But we’ve noticed that it has a pretty similar story line to another one of our favorite series: The O.C! We've noticed some pretty big similarities and wonder if you guys have too. For example: the lonely guy from a less fortunate family falls in love with the rich girl and hangs out with all of her crazy, rich friends and at first the friends hate him, but eventually the let him in. Both Gossip Girl and The O.C have the same creators and it's a winning plot, but still it's not very creative! And even if Gossip Girl is a total copy cat, we think it's a lot better than The O.C!

Demi Moore Walks the Red Carpet Without Ashton!

Tuesday 3:12 PM, 18/10/2011
Zachary Quinto, who just came out, is so handsome! Ok Penn, what's up with your hair?! Srsly, it's awful! Siiiigh, Zachary!
A new financial thriller titled "Margin Call," starring Demi Moore, Zachary Quinto, and Kevin Spacey just premiered. It looks a bit like that movie, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" and isn't really our thing, but whatevs, we like all of the actors in it. More interesting than the movie was the premiere, where Demi showed up with out Ashton Kutcher! We still have no idea what's going on with those two, but we have a feeling they're going to announce it soon enough! Penn Badgley also stars in the movie, we spotted him at the premiere and what's up with his hair? Seriously, the guy looks like Albert Einstein's distant relative. He needs to cut that mess off now! Click on the pics to see more and watch the trailer if money movies are your thing!

No One Does Couples Like Gossip Girl!

Saturday 3:11 PM, 01/10/2011
Blair and Dan, we must admit, we didn't see that coming! The romance between Serena and Dan became even more romantic, knowing Blake Lively and Penn Badgley were a couple in real life too! We had almost forgotten that Blair and Nate were a couple! But Leighton Meester and Chace Crawford look great together! We will miss Jessica Szohr on the show! Vanessa and Nate were so cute! Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle, aka Lily and Rufus, have been seen together a lot outside the set! Maybe their character's romance has rubbed off? Nate and Serena were almost too perfect together....
There are so many twists and turns on Gossip Girl right now and it's so exciting! But we are feeling a bit nostalgic about the first few seasons of Gossip Girl, like remember when Chuck and Blair first hooked up in the backseat of a limo? Or when Dan and Serena went on their first date but ended up at the Kiss On The Lips party? Who would've guessed that later Dan and Blair would have a fling?

Now with a new season GG we can expect some new relationships, but right now we're in the nostalgic mood, so we've chosen our favorite GG couples throughout the years. Click on the photos and tell us which couple is your fave!

Welcome Back Boys! This Is Why We Love The Fall!

Thursday 5:37 PM, 22/09/2011
With Stefan going bad on this season of the Vampire Diaries, we finally get to see the dark side of Paul Wesley! Jesse Spencer is the obvious hunk on House! Finally Ashton Kutcher is back in our tv-screens! We've been waiting for this since the final episode of That 70's Show! We wouldn't mind having Josh Hopkins from Cougar Town as our neighbor! We can't wait to see Penn Badgley as Lonley Boy again! Tristan Wilds from 90210 seems so charming! There's a reason Eric Danes character on Grey's Anatomy is called Dr.Steamy... Sexiest vampire ever? Well, at least Ian Somerhalder is one heck of a candidate! We whised we had Dr. Avery as our doctor! Jesse Williams is just so hot! Is there any cooler guy on TV than Chuck Bass? We don't think so, probably because Ed Westwick is so amazing!
So we've sort of been looking forward to the fall and the reason is spelled: SEXY GUYS! After an entire summer without our favourite series we can't wait to get in front of the tv-screen and get our weekly dose of steamy doctors, sexy vampires and spoiled Upper East Side boys!

You guys must be as excited as we are, thinking about all the eye candy this fall has to offer! Do you perhaps have someone you're looking forward to seeing a little extra? A soft spot for Chace Crawford perhaps, or is Ian Somerhalder's gazing eyes all you ever dream of? Either way, FINALLY, fall is here!

We Didn't Hook Up On Set!

Thursday 7:03 PM, 08/09/2011
Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal were fantastic in "Love And Other Drugs" and we believe they would be a fantastic real life couple too! Is it just us who thought that after her divorce from Brad, Jennifer Aniston should have gone for her Friends colleague, David Schwimmer? Our favorite couple on GG is Chuck and Blair. Can you imagine what an amazing couple Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick would be? Vanessa Hudgens fell in love with Zac Efron during HSM and Alex Pettyfer with Dianna Agron on "I Am Number Four". With those relationships behind them, maybe V and A should date each other! Something was obviously going on between Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf but it never really bloomed out, we wished it did!
Celebrities fall in love with each other on set all the time. And we can't blame them! Wouldn't you also fall head over heels if you had to spend all your days with someone like, Jake Gyllenhaal as your on set boyfriend? We definitely would!

But Anne Hathaway didn't! And she's not alone! Not everyone falls in love with their co-stars but that doesn't stop us from fantasizing about some on screen romances that we wish would've happened off screen! Check out who we think could have been Hollywood's next it-twosome and tell us what you think!

Well it looks like Lonely Boy is getting a girlfriend who we're gonna call Mystery Girl. Mainly because we can't find anything about the girl that Penn Badgley was seen filming with.
