Gossip Girl: Call Girls Are People Too

Just when you think everything is fine on the Upper East Side those Archibalds toss some dude in the water and really throw you for a loop. And, of course, Vanessa is there to capture the entire thing on tape.

Scandalous!

Last night’s Gossip Girl was full of all sorts of scandal. From the twisted, convoluted and sorta hard to follow situation behind Tripp Vanderbilt’s campaign (really? His wife somehow orchestrated that whole thing??) to Blair’s new super-old-looking-call-girl of a BFF, it was a roller coaster of an episode.

But let’s start at the core of it all: Blair and Serena’s waning friendship. While these two are far hotter/richer/better dressers than I could ever be, I really connected to their situation. I’ve been there and I know what it’s like to be on the outs with a very old friend. On the one hand, you wanna make up and move on out of respect for your long history together. But on the other, who you are at 18-years-old is not who you were at 12 and maybe the new people you’ve both become weren’t meant to be friends.

So what do you do?

Well, if you’re me you just accept that people change, make new friends that love you as you are right now and move on. If you’re B and S, you try to make the other person jealous with a douche bag Hollywood boyfriend/well dressed prostitute and then shove someone’s head in a cake. I think either way will work, but Blair and Serena definitely chose a more fun version to watch.

Will they reconcile? Probably, but I’m counting on a lot more evil plotting and scheming before either of these vixens waves the white couture flag and surrenders.

And speaking of scheming, what the H-E-double hockey sticks, Nate? When are you going to choose a personality and run with it? I am really sick of trying to figure out if today you’re the good guy who hates your gramps and all his lying and manipulating, or if you’re following suit and lying and manipulating too. Granted, I was happy to see the return of your mangs (man bangs), but I would have enjoyed it all a whole lot more if you went back to the Nate that Vanessa could love.

Or at least the Nate who had hot, passionate sex with Serena in the first season.

ANYTHING is better than weird, family oriented, scary Nate. It’s annoying and rather unbelievable, to be honest. You’re no Chuck Bass so stop trying.

No one can be Chuck Bass. No one. Sigh. Chuck. Chucky. Chuckeford. I fall more and more in love with him with each passing episode. It’s insane – I’ve been quite happy with my single status for the past few months, but watching Chuck snuggle up to Blair at the end of last night’s episode made me want – no, need – a boyfriend. She just looked so happy and safe there. And he was so loving and real.

…And he owns a hotel.
Come on, who couldn’t fall in love?

But, alas, I do not have me a Chuck. All I’ve got is the knowledge that there’s gonna be some sort of threesome next week. Will it somehow involve me and Chuck? Probably not, but I think it still might be just as good.
