Blake Lively Talks Serena of Gossip Girl

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip, News,

Blake Lively on the cover of NylonPlaying a super wealthy socialite on TV has both pros and cons, says Gossip Girl star Blake Lively.

Lively, who portrays Serena van der Woodsen, admits that when it comes to their closets, the two girls are strikingly similar: “I own half her wardrobe, so it’s far too similar to the way I dress.” Who could turn those clothes away!

On the other hand, Lively points out how crazy it is to portray the character at times: “I feel ridiculous at times with her, because I’m, you know, killing someone or marrying someone, but I look like me. I’m like, ‘Oh, this is absurd.’”

With that, she also added that she tends to feel her characters’ pain so much that it physically harms her. “I feel a lot. I get really bad stomachaches all the time. So I went to a doctor, and he said, ‘You’re a feeler.’ I take on people’s pain a little too much.” While I’m unsure as to whether that’s an act, I can say that it sounds like Lively takes method acting to a whole other level.

Lady Gaga Told Gossip Girl Writers What to Do


In what can only be the ultimate fusion of music, drama, and fashion, Lady Gaga is set to appear on Gossip Girl. While the rest of the cast haven’t let any info slip about the anticipated episode, Gaga herself decided to fill us in on what to expect, as well as divulging how she told the writers how she wanted the story to pan out.

“I am the narrator behind what is going on with the characters and make the song part of the moment,” the “Paparazzi” singer explained, noting that she didn’t want to be on a stage, as many musicians awkwardly and randomly appear on television shows often do (also because she stressed that she doesn’t lip-sync).

Gossip Girl Threesome Stirs More Controversy

Gossip Girl ads from Season 2Hit teenage drama show Gossip Girl continues to anger parents everywhere after news of a threesome scene on Monday’s show leaked. Nothing new there, eh?

The Parents Television Council has their knickers in a bunch, deeming the scene “reckless and irresponsible” and attempting to get the network to not air the episode.

“Will you now be complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films? CW has been defending graphic content on Gossip Girl by asserting that they don’t target teenagers. Such a claim doesn’t even pass the ‘laugh test,’” said Parents Television Council President Tim Winter in a statement released yesterday.

I mean, this is the same show that heralded seemingly-negative reviews (“Every parent’s nightmare,” “Mind-blowingly inappropriate,” and “A nasty piece of work”) by slapping them on top of provocative, sexual pictures of the show’s characters for their season two ad campaign. They also garnered hype for the much anticipated gay kiss.

My point?
