Blake tried to hide under an oversize hat but gave herself away with the huge Chanel tote she was dragging along. It's fitting, since she just landed the job as face of the French luxury house's handbag line. Can't somebody get her a Chanel ticket holder too? She held her ticket in her mouth while she got ready to go through security, which we don't recommend though we've all done it, since you just never know where those things have been.
Gossip Girlaka the narrator voice of the popular TV showis going to have to invest in an international cell phone plan before next season. The whole show Gossip Girl is hitting the road and will be shooting at the French university La Sorbonne in the Latin District Quarter of Paris on Monday, July 5th.
The scene is expected to include Leighton Meester (Blair), Blake Lively (Serena) and Ed Westwick (Chuck), as well as Parisian newcomer Clémence Poésy, who will play Eva on the show.
Leighton Meester enjoyed a stroll through Paris' Père Lachaise Cemetary yesterday with her Monte Carlo costar, Luke Bracy. The two, who are reportedly "just friends", wrapped their arms around each other as they walked through the city's largest and most famous cemetery.
Though it seems like an unlikely destination, Père Lachaise has become one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city, thanks to famous residents like Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde and Marcel Proust. The cemetery is free and open to the public daily. It is located on Boulevard de Ménilmontant. Most visitors get off at the Gambetta metro station on line 3 right next to the entrance near the tomb of Oscar Wilde.
Are you a frequent coast commuter? What we mean by that is, do the flight attendants on the route from Los Angeles to New York and back know you by your first name and drink order? Well, they do Chace Crawford, one of the stars of the CW show Gossip Girl, since he's constantly going back and forth. But like you, the airlines still don't care that he's a huge frequent flyer because Delta lost his luggage.
A quick item in today's New York Daily News says that Chace, because of the lost luggage, headed straight from LAX to shop for new clothes at Diesel at Melrose Place. Just another reason why you should always stuff an outfit change into your carry-on.
We just wonder if, because of baggage charges, does a passengers whose luggage is lost by Delta or any other airline with the charges, get refunded? What we mean is, if you're paying $25 extra for just one checked bag to make it on your flight, we can understand stuffing it full to get your money's worth, and then it should arrive as promised. Of course it's not this way; just because an airline charges for checked luggage doesn't mean the service gets any better or that it comes with a guarantee. We'll see you at Diesel next time, Chace.

Good morning, Baltimore! Here's something you'll want to update your status about, post on people's walls and create albums for -- the Facebook movie's coming to town! And whoever manages to appear in it will win a special prize from Mark Zuckerberg of potentially knowing that you exist.
"The Social Network" is already the most anticipated movie of 2010 for film geeks as well as people who spend too much time on their computers, thanks to the participation of "The West Wing"'s Aaron Sorkin, who signed on to write the script, and "Zodiac" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher. (I am Jack's nerdy roommate having a walk-and-talk with investors?)
Zuckerberg famously dropped out of Harvard to bring his baby to life, but shooting in Cambridge can get expensive -- that's if you even get the thumbs-up from the top brass, so it's off to Baltimore and the Johns Hopkins University. Students on campus found out this week that the crew will arrive on Sunday and be shooting Monday and Tuesday.

While the real kids of the NYC prep school scene are still enjoying their last few weeks of vacation in the Hamptons or Saint-Tropez, the cast of Gossip Girl is back filming on the Upper East Side and this season they will be joined by Hilary Duff.
The Duffster was on set yesterday, preparing for her role which according to Celebrity-Gossip.net is that of a movie star who enrolls in classes at NYU in hopes of getting a typical college experience. Hmm...can you say Olsen twins. Duff's character will also take an interest in Dan Humphrey.
Meanwhile, the real new class of NYU students will arrive in just a few weeks and the Student Resource Center is dedicated to helping them adjust to being on their own in the big city. However, if you're visiting an NYU student this fall you might want to see what kind of tourist hook-ups they can get you.
Much like it's good to work for Oprah, it's also good to be friends with Chace Crawford otherwise known as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl. The pretty boy actor has yet to see his fame levels rise to that of Twilight star Robert Pattinson, but life is still very good for the upcoming Footloose star.
So good that he chartered three V1 jets for his nearest and dearest 15 friends from his hometown of Dallas to celebrate his 24th birthday in The Hamptons his past weekend. Us Weekly has the scoop:
In honor of Chuck Bass' birthday on Friday, we stayed up for 36 hours and then took two flight attendants home. Just kidding! But On Location Tours' Chuck Bass Birthday Bash took advantage of an unlikely patch of sunlight Friday to raise Magnolia Bakery cupcakes to their hero and hold an impromptu Michael Jackson dance party on the steps of the Met.
Blair didn't send over a bottle of bubbly, but a Serena lookalike won the costume contest, which must have been very disappointing to the sole scarf-wearing swain on the tour. (Call us, mystery man!)
The real Chuck Bass (er, Ed Westwick) might be hanging around Gramercy today if reports of filming in the posh neighborhood are true. But Westwick himself has been in town for a whilehe just celebrated his 22nd birthday "privately" with onscreen costar/offscreen girlfriend Jessica Szohr at Lucky Strike Lanes in New York (624-660 W. 42nd). And that's how we know he's not his character; Chuck Bass would never stoop to bowling despite the potential awesomeness of the shoes.

Even though we still have more than two months before the gang on Gossip Girl starts "college," the show begins filming the new season today amidst rumors that a new cast member will show up. Apparently, Joanna Garcia, star of the now defunct Privileged, has booked a four-episode arc as Nate’s love interest. We can’t wait to see what Vanessa has to say about the new girl who is “a slightly evil Miss America-type from a conservative Southern family.”
We also hear filming permit signs are posted all around Gramercy Park, including a few in front of the Gramercy Park Hotel for today's shoot. GPH, being one of the hot luxe hotel of the city, has a price to match their poshness, but the Gramercy does offer a few special package deals to help out those of us who didn't grow up on the Upper East Side.
We'd always assumed Chuck Bass was ageless, or at least had enough Dorian Grayness to him to never mention his birthday. On Location Tours then must have stolen his little black book in order to put on this very special edition of their Gossip Girl Bus Tour for everyone's favorite bad boy.
The Friday, June 26 bus tour will include special Chuck Bass trivia (not just the usual show questions) and a gift basket to the person with the best Gossip Girl costume. If you need inspiration, we suggest the headband section at Henri Bendel, one of the stops on the tour.
Since we love Chuck, we can imagine the raucous after-party he would plan for the tour's end at 3:30 on a Friday if he were, y'know, real&$151;Lost Weekend anyone?
We actually took the original-flavor Gossip Girl bus tour a few weeks ago and came away with a largely positive impression. The bus covers a surprising amount of ground from the Upper East Side to SoHo (with views of the Humphreys' borough of Brooklyn), and we learned a few things we didn't even know from the narration.
The bus comes pre-loaded with a ton of clips from the show so you know whose townhouse you're looking at (Nate's parents' in particular is sweet). Our guide mixed up a few characters' names, and there wasn't enough time to do Bendel properly, but the thing shows promise. And for what it's worth, almost everyone on that trip preferred Chuck over Nate or Dan Humphrey. Clearly having your reputation precede you isn't such a bad thing after all.

We had our preppy picks ready to go. We had our punk picks ready to go. We were anticipating the return of Andrew McCarthy to the 80s. But sadly, Gossip Girl spin-off--which was to follow Lily van Der Woodsen around Los Angeles during her rebellious youth--is not happening.
Deadline Hollywood reports:
As I reported at 2:45 PM today, put a fork in it. It's done. Next Monday's episode of Gossip Girl is a flashback that was supposed to be a tempting taste for next fall's spinoff following the wild teen years of now mom Lily van der Woodsen (played by Brittany Snow) in Los Angeles in the 1980s. But even though I heard Peter Roth loved its yesteryear vibe, the show went from hot, to lukewarm, to "fading but wouldn't count out", to now dead, according to my insiders. I'm really surprised.
We are too! How will America's youth ever know what it was like to live in the 80s in a time before cellphones and MacBooks? We guess they could just watch VH1's "I Love the 80s" Parts 1-10 online somewhere.

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.
