: Apparently when executive producer Josh Schwartz said back in June that there were “no plans for spinoff at this moment,” what he really meant was: “We aren’t planning anything for Jenny Humphrey.”

Celebrity Double-Take: Kelly Rutherford vs. Kelly Rowan

Kelly RutherfordKelly Rowan

Okay - it’s now time for another one of my random celebrity pairings.  Today, we have Gossip Girl’s (on the left) with The O.C.‘s (on the right).

In addition to looking alike, these ladies have several other similarities.

  • Both women are obviously named Kelly.
  • Both have the initials K.R.
  • Both actresses play(ed) rich mothers on a -produced show.  (Which completely threw me off because I once thought Kelly Rowan had shifted from CA to New York.)

‘Gossip Girl’ Fans To Get a Full Season

Gossip GirlStrong word-of-mouth has earned CW newbie, Gossip Girl, a full-season order.  The Josh Schwartz () series is a perfect replacement for those who loved his last production,   The show stars (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) as Serena van der Woodsen, a girl who returns to her vicious private school after mysteriously leaving town.  plays Blair Waldorf, Serena’s former best friend and current frenemy.

The catty series has so far proven to be a much darker version of our typical teenage dramas (imagine The O.C. plus Heathers).  And with voyeuristic narration supplied by the anonymous ‘gossip girl’, things get to be so much cattier.

For those who have not yet watched the series, it’s not too late.  The first two episodes are currently hot iTunes downloads.  Once you get yourself caught up, you can find on Wednesdays @ 9pm on The CW.  I promise you—the backstabbing here is much more exciting than that / battle.  Plus - you’ll come to learn valuable fashion lessons.  Had I not watched last week, how would I have known that blue eyeshadow was back?
