GG Logo2

OK, I’ve been promising these, and I wanted to get them online before the season finale airs tonight.  And it looks like I’ll be watching the season finale later at night b/c of my gym schedule.  😦  SO, most of you will probably know which of these spoilers, teases, and hints are real and/or fake and also what they mean.  And I must give props to the source of this material, which is www.gossipgirlinsider.com.

  • A couple gets engaged … and stoned.
  • Carter Baizen makes a surprise appearance.
  • Vanessa will definitely be around next season.
  • Reluctantly, J decides she wants to rule the school.
  • When Serena tries to unmask Gossip Girl, it backfires. Hard.
  • We find out Blair’s roommate at NYU, and it’s someone we know.
  • While Jack Bass does not appear in the episode, he still plays a role.
  • Someone we know – a dude – is falsely accused of being Gossip Girl.
  • We now know what brought Serena to Santorini … or more accurately, who.
  • Chuck Bass is branded a coward by Gossip Girl in the blogger’s shocking graduation blast, and for a while, he certainly lives up to the billing.
  • Lily and Rufus’ long-lost love child, Scott, is alive, well, and in New York. No one knows his identity yet, but he has something up his sleeve.
  • Some other notes…

    Valley Girls still has a good chance of coming to fruition…but as a midseason replacement in 2010.  So, maybe we’ll see it in the January/February time frame.

    Also, though not GG related, the TV Show “Privileged” may be coming back.  And it also looks like “Melrose Place” and “The Vampire Diaries” are sure bets.  I’ll let you know more as I learn more.

    OK, gang.  Hope you enjoyed these spoilers and I really hope you enjoy tonight’s season finale of Gossip Girl.  I’ll be bak late tonight or tomorrow with a recap from the episode!

    Mwuah!

    Vampire Diaries LogoWell, here’s a little info on the new CW show that I’m really excited about.  I posted info on the cast about 2 weeks ago, and at that time it was iffy if the CW would pick up The Vampire Diaries pilot.  However, since then it appears that VD may be a definite and now the Gossip Girl spinoff “Valley Girls” may not happen.  Personally, I would LOVE for both shows to make it, along with Melrose Place.  Anyway, here’s a quote from Variety.com about The Vampire Diaries (note that “Lily” was the original name given to the GG spinoff now referred to as “Valley Girls”):

    CW is also expected to bite into the vampire genre by greenlighting drama “Vampire Diaries.” The net is expected to order at least one more new drama, and “Lily” is facing strong competish from the male-models-in-NYC vehicle “A Beautiful Life.”

    Also, at a recent Young Hollywood party, some of The Vampire Diaries divas walked the red carpet and posed together for a group shot:

    Gossip Girl LogoWell, I come back from Vegas, and find a slew of Gossip Girl news!  Here’s what I’ve learned:

    First the spoiler:  Apparently one relationship will not survive prom night (which happens tonight).  Wonder which relationship it is?  I’m guessing Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford).

    Second, it appears that the GG spinoff, Valley Girls, may not actually happen.  It has been reported that it’s too early for the show to be dead in the water, however, news is pouring in that the CW is really putting it’s money in the new Melrose Place and Vampire Diaries, and Valley Girls has kind of been pushed to the back burner.  Keep those fingers crossed gang!

    Next up, looks like Gossip Girl fashions will be coming to a store near you very soon.  Target has picked up a license to sell a clothing line based on the Gossip Girl show. 

    Finally, here are some pictures from tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl.  The episode is called Valley Girls and would be the springboard for the spinoff if it actually happens.  (The pics above of the Rhodes Sisters and Blair and Nate at the prom are also from the episode).

    So, unless you don’t listen to entertainment news, you already know that Lisa Rinna desperately wants to star on the new Melrose Place.  She was even outside with a sandwich board over her saying encouraging people to honk their horns if they love Lisa Rinna and want her back on Melrose.  Lisa Rinna played Taylor McBride on the original Melrose Place.  She moved into the complex with husband, Kyle McBride (played by Rob Estes who now stars on the new 90210 as Harry Wilson).  I don’t know how they’d bring Taylor back or why.  I like Lisa Rinna, but as Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives.  I didn’t like Taylor on Melrose at all.

    The Other Vanessa Williams, who played Rhonda Blair in season 1 of Melrose Place, also wants to come back.  She said she could envision Rhonda has opened a few aerobics/pilates studios and now has a family.  Rhonda could have been a cool character on Melrose, but they never gave her good story.  She usually was pushed back to a supporting character.  In the end, she met and fell in love with a guy and moved out of the complex.  I don’t really know how Rhonda would fit into this new world they’re building, but it could be interesting to see her return after all these years.

    Will Vanessa Williams return to Melrose as Rhonda Blair?

    What do you all think?  Would you like to see Lisa Rinna or Vanessa Williams return to Melrose?  Would they fit in with the new cast?

    I'm so happy that Alyssa grew her hair back out.  I hated the short style on her.

    Who doesn’t love Alyssa Milano?  I’ve loved the gal since here days on Who’s the Boss.  Then she joined Melrose, and I was ecstatic.  But her time on Melrose was short, b/c then she started a little show with Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs called Charmed.  Now, I’m Shannen Doherty’s #1 fan.  I have been for years.  So, I was beyond thrilled when I found out Shannen AND Alyssa would be on the same show.  It was a dream come true for me.  But then the two ladies had to have their diva tantrums (I blame both of them b/c there’s always 2 sides to a story, it couldn’t have been Shannen all alone), and Shannen left Charmed.  I stuck with the show b/c while I was a bit sore with Alyssa, I still loved her, lol.  Anywho, Alyssa has been off the radar for quite some time.  In fact, she’s even doing zit remedy commercials.  That’s sad.  😦  But the times, they are a changing!  Alyssa has landed a pilot for a not yet titled ABC comedy.  So far the only stars on the show are Alyssa and Eric Christian Olsen.  They will be bf/gf and the premise is that he is torn between his old friend and his potential new life with Alyssa.  Doesn’t sound all that promising, but I’ll watch it just to check in on Alyssa.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be Alyssa’s big comeback.  What do you think?
