Gossip Girl Watch: Blair Turns 18, Jenny Gets Emancipated, And Serena Muses

It’s celebration and emancipation time on the Upper East side as Blair turns 18, the Bass Enterprise turns 20 and Jenny continues down her Machiavellian road to fame and fortune!

Here are Blindie’s top ten moments:

  1. The diminuitive character actor Wallace Shawn guest stars as Eleanor Waldorf’s new boyfriend Cyrus Rose, and he just happens to be artist Aaron Rose’s father. We love that Blair has to chant “I am Grace Kelly. Grace Kelly is me,” in order to tolerate his brashness and hugs.
  2. Jenny’s partner in fashion crime Agnes, played by Willa Holland, parties way more than she works and practically sabotages their investor meetings by arguing over creative control of the clothing line.
  3. Serena is seduced by artsy Aaron Rose with text messages and maps leading to romantic places like the Cloisters. And despite Blair’s warning Serena poses for his art installation only to find out that she is just another muse in his painter’s palette of pretty girls. We have to admit the Times Square Jumbotron kiss was romantic!
  4. Bart Bass doesn’t have time for his son Chuck but agrees to have Dan Humphrey shadow him for two days a week to learn the business. Bart even invites Dan to the Rangers’ hockey game that Chuck gave him tickets for as an anniversary gift!
  5. Cyndi Lauper shows up at Blair’s birthday party and even the maid Dorota is starstruck! We are loving Cyndi’s new song Bring Ya To The Brink!
  6. Dan was ready to sell his soul and his story about Chuck Bass’ love starved childhood and the secret to Bart Bass’ fortune -insurance collected on an arsoned midtown building in the mid-1980s, but then his conscious kicks in, again!
  7. Jenny ditches party girl Agnes and sets up her own contract deal, but when Agnes finds out she goes ballistic dumps Jenny’s dresses in the grabage and like Angela Bassett in Waiting To Exhale lights it on fire!
  8. Blair has lunch with her mom’s new boyfriend Cyrus in an attempt to learn some incriminating information on him and ultimately breaks up the relationship. When Cyndi Lauper shows up, Blair has a “change of heart” (that was a Cyndi Lauper reference folks!) and tries to patch things up, only to realize that Cyrus was manipulating her too!
  9. Bart Bass finally has a heart to heart talk with Chuck and admits that he doesn’t blame him for his mother’s death but finds it hard to get close to Chuck because he is always reminded of her.
  10. Jenny Humphrey is homeless again when Agnes kicks her out! Good thing she’s about to get emancipated from her parents so she can sign those big fashion contracts on her own.

Gossip Girl Watch: Art And Unrequited Love

The Gossip Girl crew is up to their old tricks of scheming and hooking up with each other! And the new cutie on the scene, Aaron Rose played by John Patrick Amedori (of Stick it fame!), adds some much needed new blood to the romance drama.

Taylor Momsen must be having the best season ever as her character Jenny Humphrey goes from high school drop out to fashion intern to chic party girl all in the blink of an eye. Next week she’s a hot new breakout designer!

Here are Blindie’s top ten moments from Gossip Girl‘s “Pret-a-Poor-J” episode:

  1. Eleanor Waldorf convinces Jenny to remake her dress design so she can pass it off as a Waldorf original to the Barneys and Bendel buyers, but like a true teenager Jenny hangs out and turns in a sloppy piece of work.
  2. Jenny tells off Eleanor, takes back her designs and quits! All on the advice and prompting of her new friend Agnes who kept her out all night and ran off in the dress she was supposed to work on.
  3. Serena has found new artsy indie guy Aaron Rose to romance. Too bad he just rode away on his motorcycle with another girl! But we hear Amedori is signed up for at least three more episodes, plenty of time for him to get it on with Serena and make Dan jealous.
  4. More genius dialogue!: “Ever since Charlize Theron became the face of Dior I’ve been wanting to change my signature scent,” Blair tells Chuck; and “Unfortunately there was no hard evidence…literally,” Blair says of her failed attempt at turning Chuck on.
  5. Blair tries every trick in the book to seduce Chuck, including candles and even spilling a drink on his crotch, but alas her “itch” never gets scratched. They both decide to put off their love affair because “Chuck and Blair go to the movies” and “Chuck and Blair hold hands” just doesn’t sound right.
  6. Dan Humphrey coaches Blair as she tries to bed Chuck.
  7. Oh the irony, as Dan explains to Vanessa that Blair is humane and Vanessa tells Dan that Chuck is actually the human one.
  8. Jenny dances around in her bra with new bestie Agnes while Max the photographer snaps away on his camera. We can’t wait to see what blog those photos will turn up on!
  9. Nate walks in on a shirtless Jenny and her new friends, and like a knight in shining armour he whisks her away before she gets taken advantage of. Too late, she’s a minor who was just photographed in her undies -sounds like borderline child pornography to us!
  10. Jenny and Nate kiss! Is there anyone Nate hasn’t hooked up with?! Does Jenny have to take everything that was once Blair’s?

Gossip Girl: Bar Fights, Catfights, And College Drama!

Gossip Girl goes Ivy League as our spoiled little Upper Eastsiders bring their prep school drama to the New Haven campus of Yale University. Meanwhile, Jenny Humphrey is trying to convince her father to let her drop out of school and get home schooled like the very unpreppy Vanessa.

Here are Blindie’s top moments:

  1. Nate finds out the whole Yale campus is calling his dad the modern-day Michael Milken, that “Junk Bond King” of the 1980s who was indicted for insider trading, so he pretends to be Dan Humphrey.
  2. Little Jenny takes her dad Rufus to her job at Eleanor Waldorf’s studio to convince him to let her drop out of St. Jude’s and become Eleanor Waldorf’s full-time fashion bitch!
  3. Dan catches Nate using his name in order to get it on with a cute english major! Well, at least Nate is hooking up with girls closer to his age.
  4. A Skull and Bones-like fraternity hijacks Chuck and then compares his notorious womanizing reputation to that of John Mayer!
  5. Even though Serena was planning on applying to the slacker’s Ivy League, Brown University, she tries her hardest to steal Blair’s Yale dreams by charming the Dean.
  6. Nate tells Dan off for being self-righteous, telling him “don’t you ever get tired of carrying that chip around your shoulder….no wonder Serena dumped you!”
  7. When Blair isn’t invited to the Dean’s “intimate gathering” she bribes his cat-loving secretary to give her his home address by buying her antique porcelain cats from Christie’s!
  8. Blair pulls a Georgina and tries to humiliate Serena at the Dean’s party by preying upon her demon Pete Fairmont, the guy who overdosed on cocaine and left Serena riddled with guilt.
  9. Blair and Serena throw down in a hair-pulling catfight! Serena even snatches Blair’s headband off! So uncalled for!
  10. First Dan and Chuck threw down at a bar, and now Nate proves he’s not too much of a WASPoid to get into a bar fight as he reveals his identity to the frat guys that mistakenly tied up Dan to the school statue in nothing but his boxers.
  11. Blair says to Serena, “I’m sick of always looking like Darth Vader next to Barbie Sunshine!” as they both agree to call a cease fire.
  12. When Chuck is confronted by the fraternity for tricking them he shuts them up with incriminating photos and in true Chuck Bass style he says “you may be the future leaders…but you are now under the control of Chuck Bass, I own you!”
  13. After causing a scene at the Dean’s house with Serena, Blair laments “we’re probably gonna end up at Hunter!” Yikes, even poor girl Vanessa is trying for NYU.
  14. Nate ditches a limo ride back to New York with Chuck for a train ride with his new BFF “hum-drum” Dan Humphrey.
