Who's Your Poppy? Gossip Girl Goes Ponzi Scheme

May 5, 2009 at 10:31 AM | by | ()

Go to that one place where your friend knows the manager with our Gossip Girl Map.

Previously: Georgina is back! Apparently her new role on Gossip Girl is to fulfill a certain quota of Jesus mentions per episode, because the majority of her lines in both last week's and this week's episodes involve her naming Mr. Christ as her leader down the road of goodness. In the mean time, Serena is trying to recoup the investor's money lost to boyfriend Madoff Gabriel by pretending she's pregnant to get him to come around again. Also, Blair is on the fence about whether to throw herself at Chuck again or fall in with Nate for good by making the leap to live together.

Currently: In a cab on the Queensboro Bridge, heading back into the city with Georgina, Chuck both literally and figuratively re-enters the muck of Manhattan. In yet another symbolic twist, Serena is gifted her grandmother's bracelet by her mom, tying her closer into the van der Woodsen family and setting up neat plot twists to come.

'What The Hell Is Butter?'

Where: 415 Lafayette St. [map], New York, NY, United States
April 28, 2009 at 10:26 AM | by | ()

Go to that one place where your friend knows the manager with our Gossip Girl Map.

Previously: Serena met a nice boy who remembered her from her wild days and liked her anyway; Blair and Nate broke up but got back together again, since neither of them could really figure out what to do otherwise.

Finally, the geocentric episode of Gossip Girl we've all been waiting for! Our favorite Upper East Siders didn't go to NoHo restaurant and nightclub Butter this week but it became the proof that Serena's new golden boy Gabriel was more than a little bit tarnished.

Here's how it went down: Gabriel seemed like the perfect guy but he was always mysteriously disappearing! Blair and Chuck teamed up to do some recon and found out something funny: Gabriel claimed to have met Serena and Georgina at Butter last year, but Butter was closed that night because Blair hired the bartender to perform at a party to sabotage Nelly Yuki (see "He Broke Up With Me At A Flo Rida Concert!"). Serena didn't accept this proof until she tricked Gabriel during pillow talk by showing he didn't know Georgina at all.

The Gossip Girl Tour Bus Should Just Stick to Season One Hangouts

April 21, 2009 at 12:31 PM | by | ()

We know that the upcoming Gossip Girl Tour is limited for several reasons (specifically: 5) but as Season 2 continues with its frantic storylines, we advise On Location Tours to just stick to the good-ole hangouts of Season 1.

Previously: 800 years ago, Chuck tried to hook up with Jenny; Blair found herself scant on college options; Serena ran off to Spain with Poppy and Blair reunited with Nate.

We'll just cut to the chase and point out that this episode ends with an orgy of apologies. Given what happened to Bart Bass, we can only assume everyone on the show is now going to die, to which we say: Don't you dare, Show. That is not a good way to write around the fact that many of your main characters are about to graduate from high school.

Onto the drama.

Spotted: Five Locations The "Gossip Girl" Bus Tour Won't Hit

April 14, 2009 at 9:17 AM | by | ()

Don't be mistaken, we are genuinely excited about the "Gossip Girl" bus tour coming in May from On Location tours. After all, it is no longer okay to be seen boarding the "Sex and the City" bus, and the presence of a tour seems to say that our favorite Upper East Siders have made their mark on Manhattan (as if there was ever any doubt). But there are some places that even the best designed bus tour can't reach, and thanks to our Gossip Girl Map, we know exactly where they are:

Bethesda Terrace in Central Park -- Blair and Serena had a teary reunion in the first season in a place inaccessible by bus. They probably did that on purpose, but how did they get their drivers to go in?

The Humphreys' neighborhood -- Granted, the show we know and love tends to play fast and loose with locations in Brooklyn, placing the loft where Rufus, Jenny and Dan live on some corners that don't really exist. But that bus was never going to another borough anyway, so it's best to explore on foot.

Any club mentioned on the show -- Groucho Marx once said that he wouldn't belong to any club that would have him as a member. Well, any club cool enough to be mentioned on "Gossip Girl" won't take a busload of tourists. (The "Sex" bus gets around this by opening a bar at about 4PM especially for the tour.)

Communitea, Vanessa's sometimes-job -- Crazy V is often puttering around at the art gallery for plot-related reasons, but she also waits tables in Long Island City, where the van der Woodsen-Humphrey clan celebrated Thanksgiving in the first season. Break out your best neon colors and giant earrings!

Carter Baizen's secret poker game -- Even though the show gave out the location on GPS, we're told it has since moved after that whole Nate Archibald thing.

What Riding 'The Gossip Girl' Tour Bus Could Do To Your Reputation

April 10, 2009 at 2:49 PM | by | ()

It was to be expected but we are actually surprised it took On Location Tours to get halfway through the second season of (the best show on earth right now) Gossip Girl to announce their own Gossip Girl Tour which will begin this summer.

Live a day in the life of Serena, Blair, Chuck, Dan, Vanessa, and Nate on this three hour guided bus tour that goes to more than 30 locations that were used in filming the hit TV series. Find out behind the scenes information and little known facts about the cast and crew of Gossip Girl from local New York City actors and actresses who are the guides on this exciting tour.

Unhappy Birthday, Little J!

March 31, 2009 at 10:21 AM | by | ()

Planning your next birthday party or parentally disapproved of getaway? Don't forget to check Jaunted's Gossip Girl Map.

We've been so busy on the road we can barely keep up with the awesomeness that is Class play of "The Age of Innocence" that turns into an FML-off, with guest star Charles Isherwood? Sweet. Old money coming out to play and ruining young lives? Awesome.

This week is Jenny's birthday, and Serena decides to give her the party to end all parties -- which may or may not be related to the fact that she just ran into socialite Poppy and her life is way more fabulous. But she's shown up when Jenny, giving her a taste of her own, posts the party on Gossip Girl, inviting all sorts of miscreants. After the world's briefest fling with wild living, a still-Yaleless Blair has fallen back into the arms of Nate, which causes his soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend Vanessa to get revenge by... sleeping with Chuck. That's just what he wants you to do!

And while Dan got into Yale, he didn't get the financial aid he needed, causing Rufus to quietly contemplate selling the loft (in this market? Yikes!) and moving in with the van der Woodsens uptown, the same apartment which has just been thoroughly trashed at the party. That doesn't go over very well with Jenny, as might be expected. At the end of the night, Serena jets off to the Costa Brava with Poppy and Gabriel, whom she may have met during her debaucherous days (oops!), Nate proves unable to resist the Waldorf gravitational force field and Dan's secret literary admirer turns out to be his long-lost stepbrother. Oh, and Dorota has a boyfriend. We need more on that.

Our Preppy Picks for 'Lily' in Los Angeles

March 17, 2009 at 8:56 AM | by | ()

Like magical puppetmasters with strings everywhere, the creators of "Gossip Girl"> have us right where they want us. Even as we celebrate the return of one of our favorite guilty pleasures, a photo has leaked of Brittany Snow, star of GG spinoff "Lily," in full '80s prep regalia shooting the backdoor pilot. And here we were thinking she was going to be cool! Check out that argyle sweater and blazer set. And the Gucci shoulder bag!

Perhaps we should adjust our expectations and gear up to celebrate preppy L.A. with spots like these:

Where to Eat: Dish Brunching in this shabby-chic restaurant is like dining in your childhood dollhouse. 734 Foothill Blvd, La Canada

Where to Go Out: PYT at Jimmy's Lounge If your style is more Vampire Weekend than MGMT, find your kind at this weekly dance party with stellar drink specials. Fridays at 10PM; 6202 Santa Monica Blvd.

Where to Shop: Original Penguin. Even if these photos are just a tease as Lily becomes an authentic punk and casts aside her preppy weeds, someone on this show will be wearing this alternative to too-loud-Lauren. Their whimsical polo shirts are perfect for stacking on -- Andrew McCarthy to wardrobe! 8215 Melrose Ave.

'Gossip Girl' Spinoff So Totally California

March 9, 2009 at 2:31 PM | by | ()

No wonder Lily van der Woodsen-Bass was so messed up! Her mom was in a plane crash and her dad was always in New York hanging out with some high-class ladies.

The latest casting news for "Lily," the "Gossip Girl" spinoff formerly known as "How I Met Your Girlfriend's Mother," includes former "LOST"away Cynthia Watros (who played Libby) as Lily's mom and Brat Packer Andrew McCarthy, most recently part of the cast of the ever-on-the-bubble "Lipstick Jungle."

Watros and McCarthy join Brittany Snow as Lily and "Confessions of a Shopaholic"'s Krysten Ritter as the older sister she lives with in California in the tale of Serena's mom's supposedly wild-child adolescence. That's pretty true-to-life for a lot of Los Angeles teens. (Hello, Rumer Willis! Or better yet, Kelly Taylor!)

There are no new location updates but as long as we're geeking out about casting, "Veronica Mars" fans should be cheered by the addition of Ryan Hansen, who played the lovably degenerate Dick Casablancas, in a supporting role on "Lily." And there's just one more week till the new episode of "Gossip Girl"!

OMG! No Doubt To Appear For "Gossip Girl" Backdoor Pilot

March 3, 2009 at 10:26 AM | by | ()

What do you know, our little network is moving up in the world. Last season when "Gossip Girl" reached out for a band to play the debutante ball where Serena battled her grandmother, we got some duo called The Pierces. This year, viewers of the CW show we can't stop watching will be treated to a performance by No Doubt, apparently (spoiler alert!) standing in for Lily's favorite bands from the '80s.

According to whispers on the Internet, the penultimate episode of this season will launch the new "Gossip Girl" spinoff, "Lily," in the "backdoor" way "Private Practice" was delivered to "Grey's Anatomy" viewers. (That's just what they call it!) In it, young Lily, rumored to be played by "Hairspray"'s Brittany Snow, will see No Doubt as a band covering '80s faves Adam and the Ants.

We're so deprived of new "Gossip Girl" episodes that even this retro-fantasia wrapped in a mystery wrapped in a riddle sounds good right now. But our favorite Upper East Siders will return March 16 for the final eight episodes of Season 2. No Doubt will be going back on tour this summer with Paramore.

Do We Wanna Meet The Real-Life Gossip Girls? (Duh.)

February 17, 2009 at 10:34 AM | by | ()

It's "Laguna Beach" with knee socks: Proving that someone's "Gossip Girl" withdrawal is worse than ours, Bravo announced last week that they are developing a reality series about New York City prep schoolers. That's right, it's "The Real Gossip Girls Of New York."

The producers of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" and the first season of "Top Design" expect the as yet untitled show to premiere later this year on the channel best known for "Project Runway" and the "Real Housewives" series. Fashion, rich people and teenagers -- sounds like a match made in heaven.

'Gossip Girl' Spinoff: We Love The '80s!

February 10, 2009 at 2:21 PM | by | ()

With our favorite Upper East Siders on hiatus until March 9, we are free to engage in wild speculation about the once-denied, now-confirmed "Gossip Girl" throwback spinoff. The leaks turned out to be true: The new series will focus on Lily and Rufus' fine '80s romance in Los Angeles, although how Lily got her staid, establishment parents to let her move to California is anyone's guess.

We've heard the name Kristen Bell (currently the voice of "Gossip Girl") bandied about to play little Lil, but the only announced member of the cast so far is Krysten Ritter (Isla Fisher's best friend in the new movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic") who has been tapped to play the older Bart sister and black sheep.

Is A Scandal Still A Scandal If You Can't Text About It?

February 3, 2009 at 10:41 AM | by | ()

Previously: Blair got waitlisted to Yale, her first B and, then, her first detention courtesy of new teacher Rachel Carr, the only prof Serena ever liked; Chuck brought his Uncle Jack down with the help of his former stepmom Lily.

No sooner has Blair finished (directing Dorota to do) her hard labor -- picking up trash in New York City's Central Park -- than she already wants revenge from Ms. Carr. And her crowd is unwilling to contribute until the new teacher in town spearheads a new school rule requiring students to surrender their cell phones before class. Oh noes! Several contraband phones later, Blair is planting a rumor about Carr and Dan Humphrey on Gossip Girl, about which even Serena has her suspicions. Those two seem to be meeting everywhere, ostensibly about Dan's stories, but....
