Belles de Jour

Gossip Girl: Nothing beats a summer abroad. But when travelling far from home it’s always nice to bring along an old friend from the neighborhood. Cobblestones and Cafe de Flore. Serena’s locked down the Left Bank and become a muse to us all. Meanwhile, Blair rules the Right Bank. Storming the shops and consuming the classics. And sampling sugary snacks like a modern Marie Antoinette. But we hear Serena’s stories sizzle while Blair’s are more fizzle. She shopped at Saint Laurent, and dined at Drouant, but the only beau B had this summer is on her headband.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: B and S. Chic and cheerful up on Boulevard Hausmann. They dallied at department stores and stayed awhile at Tally Weijl. Down on Rue Saint-Honoré they courted couture at Palais Royale. And found the perfect outfits to bas&sh the competition. Then they headed to the Golden Triangle. Where Montaigne meets Georges V. And luxury goods are the opiate of choice.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: B riding shotgun. Let’s see if our royal wannabe has the Grace to make it through the night.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: Georgina Sparks, a stroller, and Dan’s dad with a scowl.
Georgina about Dan: I think he’s on his way.
Gossip Girl: Looks like Lonely Boy has a baby boy.

Gossip Girl: We hear Baccarat just updated its menu.
Louis: I thought it was fate. But I guess not.
Blair: No no no! It is fate. It’s just…
Louis: Good evening, Blair.
Gossip Girl: The gateau du jour? Is now humble pie.
Bon appetit, Blair.

Gossip Girl: This just in from Miss B herself: Serena van der Woodsen is heading to Columbia. S & B together again? We think we’ve died and gone to heaven. Or at least the Upper West Side.

Gossip Girl: Napoleon once said that secrets travel fast in Paris. But Gossip Girl travels faster. Bisou bisou.

Double Identity

Gossip Girl: Summer is coming to a close. And as everyone knows, Paris—like the Upper East Side—empties out in August. Leaving behind only the tourists and the dreamers, lamenting the imminent return to real life.

Gossip Girl: They say it’s easy to forget your troubles when the weather’s warm. But all it takes is one fall breeze to blow reality right back in your face.
Blair: What are you doing? Suddenly we’re stopping for pedestrians? Vite!
GG: Watch out Blair. He who sows the wind reaps the storm.

Gossip Girl: Holy Bruce Wayne, Batman. It’s one thing to hide who you really are. It’s another to pretend you don’t exist.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: One American, leaving Paris. Au revoir, l’enfant terrible.

Gossip Girl: With Dan spotted kissing Vanessa and Nate’s early morning coffees with a new blonde, it looks like the oddsmakers have taken a beating. Serena van der Woodsen will be walking onto Columbia’s campus single. This poll is now closed. And nobody won.

Gossip Girl: Just as every summer ends, all tourists come home. All dreamers wake up. And new problems are born.

Gossip Girl: And just like that, a pretty girl’s ugly secret is revealed.

Gossip Girl: But no matter what the new season brings, we’ll always have Paris. Bisou bisou —Gossip Girl.

The Undergraduates

Gossip Girl: Under Construction

Gossip Girl: Sorry for the silent treatment, Gossips. But everyone needs the occasional R & R, even yours truly. Lucky for you I observed a sacred Upper East Side tradition and had a little work done while I was gone. [I hope you like my new look]. Now, enough with the pleasantries. Time for the dirt. I spy with my many eyes Chuck Bass returning from Paris yesterday with a pretty new fall accessory. But if she’s the kind of girl you take home to meet your step-mother, why is Chuck visiting Lily solo?

Gossip Girl: Also spotted: Lonely Boy’s baby mama, looking like one hot mama on the beach in St. Bart’s. If she’s flown the coop, who’s cleaning up her baby’s poop?

Gossip Girl: And what about Serena and Blair? It seems our girls have started their college careers with a social call to Hamilton House. But if B is the one holding the key to the kingdom, guess Serena is out in the cold.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: B holding court at Hamilton House. Don’t worry, S. It’s not your party but you can cry if you want to.

Gossip Girl: They say old habits die hard, but when it comes to Serena and Blair, old jealousies die harder.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: S & B discovering the joys of filmmaking. Smile for your close-up, Juliet.

Gossip Girl: Sometimes you just have to come clean. No matter how many dirty secrets come out.

Gossip Girl: Rumor has it S & B changed their relationship status from besties to roomies.

Gossip Girl: Friends or lovers, moving in is risky business. Any time the rules change, you don’t know how they’ll change you. We take the risk because the payoff can be so great. But the truth is, we never truly know who we’re living with. Or the company they keep. Better watch out, kids. Trouble’s moving in and it’s looking to make the Upper East Side its bitch. XOXO.

Touch of Eva

Gossip Girl: Overnight our brooding billionaire has become a generous gentleman. But what’s responsible for this metamorphosis? Or should I say, “who”. Has a French fairy touched Chuck with her magic wand? Or does simply being with an angel make you want to grow wings too?

Gossip Girl: Spotted: one angel selling her halo. Careful Eva, returning that watch may cost you the time of your life.

Gossip Girl: Looks like Eva’s past may be Blair’s perfect present. But what’s more dangerous for Chuck? Eva’s secret? Or what B may do with it?

Gossip Girl: Uh oh, Chuck. Looks like B stands for betrayal. Can you catch your angel before she flies away?

Gossip Girl: In the prestigious buildings of Manhattan’s elite, sometimes the door we open belongs to someone else.

Gossip Girl: And sometimes we let someone in, only to be left out in the cold. Yet sometimes, despite what we may want, the door just has too many locks. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Goodbye, Columbia

Gossip Girl: Morning on the Upper East Side. Where even our own blonde birdie has been spotted flying the coop early to make it to her morning classes. Leave it to Serena van der Woodsen to make geek, chic. Who knew ivy would look so good on her.

Gossip Girl: This just in. Looks like you can take the girl out of the party but not the party out of the girl. Rumor has it our favorite blonde could be spreading more than just good cheer. And if it’s true, then there’s a test out there a few of you might not be able to pass. Does SVW have an STD… !?

Gossip Girl: Looks like Dan and Serena’s sleepover last May was more than just a kiss before bed.

Gossip Girl: Better batten down the hatches, B. Looks like your island in the storm was just hit by a Bass 5 hurricane.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: Serena van der Woodsen looking like she’s hot for teacher. That’s the thing about a good gaslight. With enough smoke, who cares if there’s really a fire.

GG: Poor V. Didn’t she know that in love and war, a friend in need is willing to do most any deed.

Gossip Girl: The law of affinity refers to unlikely compositions forming a bond through a purely chemical reaction. … But even the strongest bonds have their limits. And when broken… That if left unchecked, explode like a nuclear bomb.
Chuck: Veronica. Do you still work with Tim Gunn? I need to get an interview for someone who will be applying to Parsons. Perfect. Yeah, her name’s Jenny Humphrey.
Gossip Girl: Waiting for the fallout. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Easy J

Gossip Girl: They say waking up is hard to do. Especially when you’re not alone.

Gossip Girl: They say life is full of surprises. That our dreams really can come true. Then again, so can our nightmares. Welcome home, Jenny Humphrey. We’ve missed you.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: B’s disciples hot on Little J’s tail.

Gossip Girl: Watch out J. Break a deal with the devil… and there’ll be hell to pay.

GG: Spotted: Little J having a fashion emergency. Looks like B drew blood.

Gossip Girl: Careful Little J. Queen B doesn’t grant second chances. She attacks at first sight.

Gossip Girl: Looks like New York’s best kept secret is finally out. Turns out Little J didn’t lose her V-card to Damien []. She waited. And Chucked it away with her step-brother. Guess that explains the Humphrey in Hudson. Hell hath no fury like a Waldorf scorned.

Gossip Girl: Looks like the joke’s on Chuck and Blair. And Little J’s got the last laugh.

Gossip Girl: We hear Little J gave Chuck and Blair a goodbye kiss. Of death.

Gossip Girl: They say war is not the answer. But sometimes it’s a battle just to keep the peace.

Gossip Girl: On the Upper East Side, you may stand down but you can never give up. And the bitterest feuds are always labors of love. … But our most dangerous enemies are the ones we never knew we had. … So if you want peace, always be prepared for war. XOXO —Gossip Girl

War at the Roses

Gossip Girl: Rise and shine, Upper East Siders. It’s officially fall. And when the leaves start to turn, we know it’s time for B’s birthday. We hope Serena will be there to celebrate, but we hear she’s having her own private party with a professor.

GG: Seems like leaves aren’t the only things changing colors this fall.

Gossip Girl: Uh oh, Juliet’s plans are falling into place. And S is primed for a fall.

Gossip Girl: Nate thought he and Humphrey were thick as thieves. Turns out Humphrey’s a thief and Nate’s just thick.

Gossip Girl: Looks like Brooklyn’s in it to win it. Just what is “it” exactly? Guess we’ll find out tonight.

Gossip Girl: At the end of every war, the warriors come home. Hoping what they’ve seen and done won’t stay with them forever.

Gossip Girl: Buddha once said “It’s better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles.” But other soldiers just can’t give up the fight. And go underground to plan the next war. But it’s the true warrior who knows that wars don’t end. They simply change. And there can never be peace as long as guns are still loaded and there’s plenty of ammunition.

Gossip Girl: These weapons may be deadly. XOXO —Gossip Girl

Juliet Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Gossip Girl: Morning, Upper East Siders. Hope you had a good night’s sleep. Or at least a good night’s play.

Gossip Girl: In a city that never sleeps, it’s important to always be alert. Because if you blink you might miss something. Or someone.
Juliet: Yes, hi. I need to make an appointment with Dean Luther right away. I have something that she wants to see.
Gossip Girl: But be careful, since the truth can be eye-opening.
Nate: Hey, excuse me. I’m dropping some stuff off for Juliet Sharpe.
Doorman: Who?
Nate: Juliet Sharpe. Uh, 4a, I think it is.
Doorman: I’m sorry, there’s no one named Sharpe in this building. Or Juliet for that matter. At least not in the eight years I’ve worked here.
Gossip Girl: Good morning, Upper East Siders. This is your wake up call.

Gossip Girl: They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but in this case it seems like there’s only three letters to adequately describe these pictures: OMG.

Gossip Girl: Looks like the chip on Vanessa’s shoulder just went digital.

Juliet: Excuse me, Dean Reuther? I have something that you need to see.
GG: Put on your toe shoes, Serena. It’s going to be hard to dance your way out of this one.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: One ugly duckling exiled. Let’s hope she doesn’t turn into a black swan.

Gossip Girl: Sometimes in life we hit a crossroads and are forced to choose which path we want to take.

Gossip Girl: And there’s no way of knowing if our journey will lead us to pleasure or pain.

Gossip Girl: Once we’ve made our choice, there’s no turning back. Watch out, Upper East Side, I think this could be the beginning of an ugly friendship. XOXO. —Gossip Girl

The Witches of Bushwick

Gossip Girl: On the Upper East Side, the possibilities are endless. Dom or Krug. Winston or Cartier. Tory or Stella. Eventually even the people with everything have to choose.

Gossip Girl: Watch out, S. Looks like Brooklyn finally has a team again. And this time they brought in a ringer.

Gossip Girl: Attention Party People. Bass’ black and white has added some fire and ice. Whether you’re a saint or a sinner, the afterlife never looked so good.

Gossip Girl: Looks like the battle between Brooklyn and the Upper East Side has finally come to a head. Word has it Lonely Boy and Golden Boy both declared their love. They gave Cinderena until midnight to decide. That Carolina Herrera dress makes her look like an angel, but this decision is demonic. And the forces of evil are just getting started.

Gossip Girl: Looks like saints and sinners aren’t the only ones battling for souls tonight.
Chuck: What say we go up in flames together.
Gossip Girl: It’s no surprise C and B succumbed to the dark side. But how about the boys from opposite sides of the bridge? It’s hard to get word when they’re both lip locked with Serena van der Woodsen. Lucky I have the pictures to prove it.

Gossip Girl: In the battle between good and evil, score one for the sinners. Looks like S could end up the next saintly sacrifice. Pleasant dreams, sweet angel.

Gossip Girl: That’s the thing about destiny. Instead of too many choices, you suddenly have none. The Prince of Darkness finally sees the light, only to realize it’s no longer an option. And the time for love has come and gone. The rest of us just have to keep moving forward. Accept the choice is out of your hands. It’s up to the fates to decide. XOXO —Gossip Girl

Gaslit

Gossip Girl: Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. As always I’ll be spending it giving thanks for the bounty of secrets I’ve harvested from you this year. But leave a place for me at your table. I’ll be back for just desserts.

Gossip Girl: Afternoon, Upper East Siders. Were your dinners as filling as mine was? Hope not. Because have I got some dessert for you. With sugar on top. It seems everyone’s favorite party girl fell off the wagon and landed right in rehab. Good luck getting a Lohan-dle on things, S. From the looks of it, you’ve got a lot to recover from.

Gossip Girl: During the holidays we call customary patterns of behavior “tradition”. And like any pattern, once established they are not easily broken. Sometimes we convince ourselves we can start new traditions. Only to realize it wouldn’t be a tradition if it changed.

Gossip Girl: Other times even things we never realized were traditions can become one. But the best kinds of traditions are the ones that bring people together. Even under the most unlikely of circumstances.

Gossip Girl: Come together. Right now. XOXO —Gossip Girl

The Townie

Gossip Girl: Spotted: Dan and Blair exiting Sant Ambroeus with espresso doppio for two. But we hear it’s not the caffeine that’s got them talking a mile a minute. It’s a mission.

Gossip Girl: 252 Cornice Avenue. Find the bitch.

Gossip Girl: Buckle up, kids. Looks like this unholy alliance is hitting the road.

Gossip Girl: Better step on it, Juliet. Because your clean getaway just got very messy.

Gossip Girl: Uh oh, S. You’ve got a surprise visitor and she’s about to give you shock therapy.

Gossip Girl: Time to turn on the charm, Lily. Because your perfect party just turned into the perfect storm.

Gossip Girl: They say you reap what you sow. Better get out your gardening gloves, Lily. Looks like you’re going to have a bumper crop this year.

Gossip Girl: Whenever we give up something we really care about, we hope that the Universe will reward our selfless choice. However it’s not always fate that gives us a gift. Sometimes it’s someone closer to home.

Gossip Girl: If you love someone, set them free. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

The Kids Are Not All Right

Gossip Girl: It’s a cold New Year, Upper East Siders. Time to donate that fall wardrobe to the help and to present the world with a better version of you. Which could mean facing your future… and forgetting past mistakes. Or finally settling on a brand new path. But a new year doesn’t wipe away old problems.

Gossip Girl: Watch your back, Lily. These kids are definitely not alright.

Gossip Girl: Will Lonely Boy ever learn that S can’t tell time? Especially when she’s wasting someone else’s?

Gossip Girl: Looks like Serena may have found Ben’s get-out-of-jail-free card.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: B using old tricks to get to one Nooyi. But it seems that someone got an SOS to the CEO. Sorry, B. That internship has sailed.

Gossip Girl: Looks like Serena’s ablaze on a path to punishment. Suit up, Lily. Your baby’s out for blood.

Gossip Girl: It seems like love can’t compete with the allure of war. Find your seats, honored guests. Justice is served.

Thorpe: I was planning to get settled before I dove into business, but I’m a restless ma. So, I’ve decided to set my sights high. On a company that has just this minute come back up on the block. My dear departed friend’s Bass Industries.
Gossip Girl: Looks like Page Six of this party will read: The World According to Thorpe.
Thorpe: So, cheers! To new friends. And inevitable enemies.
Gossip Girl: Forget your usual suspects, Upper East Siders.
Thorpe: I look forward to facing you all.
Gossip Girl: There’s a new family in town.

Gossip Girl: In the New Year, we resolve to do things we’ve only dreamed of doing. And not to do other things ever again.

Gossip Girl: We may surprise ourselves as we face our future. Or be surprised when we’re cleaning up the past.

Gossip Girl: Dishonesty may help some make a few good amends. While others are left to wonder if they can handle the truth.

Gossip Girl: And whether you kick things off by sleeping with the enemy, or trying your best to remake a former friend—
Ben Donovan: Serena.
Serena: You’re still here.
Ben: Just waiting for the bus. What are you even doing here?
Serena: Are you free for coffee?
Ben: I’ll be free for anything.
Gossip Girl: One thing’s for sure, anything is possible. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Damien Darko

Gossip Girl: Brr, Upper East Siders. It’s cold outside. And as February approaches, we need to find ways to fight frostbite. Some keep warm the old fashioned way.

Some seek the comfort of loved ones. And some try to keep away the gloom by painting things bright.

Gossip Girl: Nothing says January like a brand new cold war.

Gossip Girl: Seems Serena’s getting frosty with her mother over an envelope of cold, hard cash. Looks like not everything or everyone’s on sale this January.

Gossip Girl: Careful D, it’s flu season. But nothing’s more contagious than mistrust.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: Dubious friends in definite hot water.
Epperley: Obviously you’re both fired. Go back the office and pack your things.
Looks like W just left Dan and Blair both out in the cold.

Gossip Girl: Sorry, S. Looks like the only thing you’ll be snuggling up with this winter are warm memories.

Gossip Girl: This winter, even though we bundle up, a cold shoulder can freeze us out.

Gossip Girl: Sometimes a ray of sun shines in and gives us hope.

Gossip Girl: But on the Upper East Side, the slipperiest ice, is usually right in front of us. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Panic Roommate

Gossip Girl: A wise woman once said that every morning when you wake up you say a little prayer. After all, you never know what your day may hold.
Reina Thorpe: Sorry, I only have an hour before my next meeting.
Chuck: Hm. We’ve got no time to waste.
From a warm goodbye.
Epperley Lawrence: Ten things I need done in an hour. Sorry, fashion week is starting.
To a chilly hello.
Voice Mail Lady: You have no new messages.
From quiet solitude…. To surprise company.
PO: Hi. I’m here for the home inspection.
Dan: Home inspection for what?
Rufus: Ah. Sorry we’re late. You must be Ben’s parole officer.
The day waits for no one.

Gossip Girl: Looks like our favorite Upper East Sinners just found the answer to their prayers.
Chuck and Blair: I need your help.
Lucky for us, their road to Heaven leads straight through hell.

Gossip Girl: Watch out, Lonely Boy. Your new roommate’s moving in fast, but you’re the one that’s going to have to unpack his lies.

Gossip Girl: Careful, B. Your boss’ phone is ringing off the hook. And it’s your job on the line.

Gossip Girl: Sorry, S. Your new beau may have the right to remain silent. But you just became the talk of the town.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: a Lonely Boy trying to save an innocent man. Looks like Brooklyn’s the one who’s guilty by association.

Gossip Girl: They say the universe has a great sense of humor. That sometimes having your dreams come true can feel like a nightmare. Because getting what you want always come with strings attached…. And even when you think you’re finally in the clear, you’re never home free.

Gossip Girl: Every happy ending is just a new beginning. Because on the Upper East Side, the good times never lasts forever. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

It-Girl Happened One Night

Gossip Girl: It’s cold out there, but on the Upper East Side things are heating up. Because Valentine’s Day is around the corner.

Gossip Girl: Uh oh. B’s in for a shock when she finds out what she thought was as fake as a CZ is actually as real as Harry Winston.

Gossip Girl: Looks like this was one love letter Lily didn’t want anyone else to read.

Gossip Girl: One lonely Bass adrift at sea. Looks like Venice isn’t the only thing that’s sinking.

Gossip Girl: Rubies are red, hydrangeas are blue. Chuck’s given his heart away—
Dan: Wow, he’s good.
Gossip Girl: But guess what, Blair? Not to you.
Blair: Shut up Humphrey.

Gossip Girl: A Valentine can be a red hot weapon of revenge. Or a heartfelt apology.

Gossip Girl: Or sometimes, there’s a way to candy coat the fact you’re all alone.

Gossip Girl: But whatever your Valentine’s Day brings, never forget that some years, it’s a massacre. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

While You Weren’t Sleeping

Gossip Girl: Mick, Keith and their questionably-costumed cohorts said, “You can’t always get what you want.” But that doesn’t mean it’s okay for anyone else to have it either.

Gossip Girl: Girls, Inc. has found its new face in Reina Thorpe. If only Chuck Bass could get her to look at his again. But New York’s favorite bad boy always get what he wants. And in this case, we think that’s the girl who has everything.

Gossip Girl: “Can’t get no satisfaction.” Looks like that’s up for debate.

Gossip Girl: Painting It Black has nothing on the trouble one piece of purple paper can cause.

Gossip Girl: Poor E. Only eighteen and already welcoming all the makings of anyone’s nineteenth nervous breakdown.

Gossip Girl: I hear a storm is threatening someone’s very life today. Let’s hope they find some Shelter. And it’s not behind bars.

Gossip Girl: Turns out what Ben did while doing time, wasn’t on his side. Now Vanessa has him under her thumb.

Gossip Girl: When you do finally get what you want, the problem is there’s always someone that’s trying to take it away. And all that wanting makes us blind to the fact that things aren’t exactly what we think they are. Maybe it’s better sometimes to just get what you need. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Empire of the Son

Gossip Girl: They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. And yet what a difference a day makes.

Gossip Girl: Sorry, S. Looks like your sweetheart’s mom is still a little sour.

Gossip Girl: But when it comes to life’s bitter pills, the hardest to swallow is a taste of your own medicine.

Gossip Girl: Why would a friendship based on fight suddenly end in flight? They say we only run from the things that truly scare us.

Gossip Girl: Looks like the jury on Ben might be out after all.

Gossip Girl: Careful, Chuck. When it comes to Bart Bass, seek, and who knows what you may find.

Gossip Girl: The question of whether we can fight fate will always remain a mystery.
Blair: What are you doing here?
Gossip Girl: But the bigger question is what happens when we stop fighting it.
Dan: I don’t know.

Blair:One kiss. That’s that.
Dan: One kiss and that’s that. So?
Blair: So. {he slowly leans in} Oh for crying out loud, Humphrey!
Gossip Girl sotto voce: XOXO —Gossip Girl

The Kids Stay in the Picture

Gossip Girl: Uh oh, Lily. It looks like instead of being on the pages, you’re about to have the book thrown at you.

Gossip Girl: They say that fortune favors the bold.
Charlotte: Serena. Look I’m sorry I left without saying goodbye, but as much fun as I had my mom is right. She sacrificed a lot to raise me the way she thought was best. I have to respect that.
Serena: Well she may not have sacrificed as much as you think.
Gossip Girl: But watch out for the bold-faced lies that come with fortune’s favors.

Gossip Girl: Cinderella finally showed up at the ball. Too bad it was cancelled.

Gossip Girl: Poor lost prince. What’s the point of having a kingdom if you have to reign alone?

Gossip Girl: Walking down the primrose path, you risk finding hell instead of happily ever after.

Gossip Girl: As with any journey, who you travel with can be more important than your destination.

Gossip Girl: You never know who you’ll encounter along the way. Who knows, maybe fairy tales come true after all. XOXO. —Gossip Girl.

Petty in Pink

Gossip Girl: Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But ask any Upper East Side girl to show you her most prized possession and we bet the box is Vivier. Not Cartier. But the truth is, just because the shoe fits, doesn’t mean you want to wear it.

Gossip Girl: Hey Upper East Siders. Word is that B is headed for a secret rendezvous. Questions is with who?

Gossip Girl: Poor S. Apparently Blair and Dan’s boots are made for walking. Right all over you.

Gossip Girl: Charlie may be new to the city, but apparently she already knows how to get around. Who needs a map when you can just follow the cheater.

Gossip Girl: Sorry, Lonely Boy. But it looks like this is going to be a Surrender the Pink Party for you.

Gossip Girl: Uh oh. Lily may be wearing her dancing shoes, but it looks like she’s about to make a run for it.

Gossip Girl: Time to grab your Judith Leibers, ladies. Looks like Upper East Side’s smoothest criminal has just given you the boot.

Gossip Girl: You can never really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes. At first it might not seem like the most natural fit.

Gossip Girl: But walk around in those shoes long enough and you’ll discover you just might like it.

Gossip Girl: Just don’t get too comfortable kids, because you never know when the other shoe is going to drop. XOXO. —Gossip Girl

The Princesses and the Frog

Gossip Girl: Once upon a time in the land called Upper East, a beautiful girl met a beast.

Gossip Girl: But while the beast locked himself in a tower of ennui, the girl found herself a prince. His name?

Gossip Girl: Too bad that around here, happy endings often lack. So if I were B, I’d watch my back.

Gossip Girl: And in all princess tales, an evil queen does appear. But it turns out the Queen’s helper is the one B should fear.

Gossip Girl: Poor Chuck. When you asked Bart about the fire, no wonder an affair was something he chose not to remember.

Gossip Girl: Wonder if Chuck Bass is about to go from down-and-out to down on one knee. Nothing like using a rock to get out of a hard place.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: a prince torn between choosing his kingdom or his queen.
Princess Sophia: End it. Now.

Gossip Girl: One upon a time in the land of the Upper East, a beautiful girl fled from a beast. His closest friends began to retreat.

Gossip Girl: While enemies marshaled to plan his defeat, across the river in lands far away, a mysterious young maiden was making her play.

Gossip Girl: And with the beast finally vanquished, most tales they would end. With one happy princess. And an excited best friend.

Gossip Girl: But in a land where the best castles come with a view of the park, it’s important to remember—
Blair: Mom? I’m sorry to wake you, but I have some news. I’m engaged.
Gossip Girl: Where most fairytales end, ours merely starts. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Shattered Bass

Gossip Girl: Good morning, Sleepyheads. Looks like “dream until your dreams come true” wasn’t such a good idea after all.

Gossip Girl: Let’s hope the only thing B has in common with Marie Antoinette is impeccable taste. Or she just might lose her head before she gets her crown.

Gossip Girl: I don’t think that’s what the doctor had in mind when he said, “Use as directed.”

Gossip Girl: We hear one Bass is hitting bottom. Looks like the hotel isn’t the only Charles that needs rehab.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: A lush headed for lock down. Let’s hope this Bass can survive on dry land.

Gossip Girl: They say love is the best medicine. That is unless you don’t take it.

Gossip Girl: A dream is just a dream. Or is it? A place where fantasy and reality collide.

Gossip Girl: Everything you ever wanted seems possible. Until you realize, the nightmare’s just beginning. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

The Wrong Goodbye

Gossip Girl: Bon soir, Upper East Siders. Are you enjoying the party as much as I am? I know one person who isn’t.

Gossip Girl: This just in: Blair Waldorf MIA at Constance. Doesn’t she know her prince is waiting? Or has she found a new one.

Gossip Girl: Watch out, S. We find what we look for. But never where we expect.

Gossip Girl: Poor B. Don’t you know timing is everything? Looks like someone just stepped on your lines.

Gossip Girl: This just in: Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf. Happily Never After. They say parting is such sweet sorrow, but wouldn’t it be nice if just once it didn’t have to be?

Three weeks later…

Gossip Girl: Transitions in life are usually marked by major events. Birthdays, graduations, weddings.

Gossip Girl: But the greater transitions often come out of smaller moments. When we stop and look at where we are. Because each time we see how far we’ve come, we also see how far we still have to go.

Gossip Girl: In order to fully transform, we might need to free ourselves of everything we’ve been holding on to. To send us on our new path. The right one.

Gossip Girl: But if, at the end, you find the person you’ve become is not the person you want to be, you can always turn around and try again.

Gossip Girl: And maybe the next time, you won’t be so alone when it’s over. Too late to turn back now. XOXO —Gossip Girl
