“The Upper East Side was like something from Fitzgerald or Thackeray – teenagers acting like adults, adults acting like teenagers, guarding secrets, spreading gossip all with the trappings of truly opulent wealth.
“And membership into this community was so elite you couldn’t even buy your way in. It was a birthright – a birthright I didn’t have. And my greatest achievements would never earn me.
“All I had to compare it to was what I read in books. But that gave me the idea: I wasn’t born into this world … maybe I could write myself into it.
“I overheard enough conversations to be able to mimic the language of the Constance girls, but every writer needs his muse and it wasn’t until that photo of Serena in the white dress that I knew I had something strong enough to actually create a legend and launch a website.
“Within weeks I was getting dozens of emails with stories about Upper East Siders, so I posted them anonymous. And then I got more. Before long it was a monster.
“Everyone was sending tips … And when Serena came back from boarding school, I wrote my first post about me, Lonely Boy, the outsider, the underdog. I might have been a joke but at least people were talking about me.” – Dan Humphrey reveals that “Lonely Boy” was Gossip Girl all along, on the Gossip Girl series finale. And if you’re having trouble with that too, check out ButYouWereDanTheWholeTime, a new Tumblr which plans to re-watch every episode to see how many plotlines no ,onger make sense.
Chase! Darling! Haven’t thought of you in YEARS! And look! You’re a MAN now. Modeling for Mr Porter, I see. Has Gossip Girl ended? Is it FINALLY over? Funny how you just slipped off the radar some time around 2009. Well, it’s nice to have you back, son. You look very dapper. Now let’s get you a nice indie movie role or maybe leak some iPhone pictures of your junk to REALLY do this whole comeback thing properly. A hot photo shoot is a start, but you just look like Nate Archibald here, only older, and we need to MIX THINGS UP A BIT. But, yes, yay, good for you, putting yourself out there again.

As the series wraps up, the cast of Gossip Girl sat for one last cast photo and SURPRISE! SURPRISE!, Penn Badgley revealed his newly shaven head of hair. He’s still gorg, of course, but I’m sure going to miss those nutty locks. (via Chase Crawford’s Twitter)
The stunning Blake Lively and her beau Ryan Reynolds tied the knot over the weekend in a private ceremony. Allegedly surrounded by some family, friends, Christian Louboutin (natch), and Florence Welch, who performed a few numbers at the ceremony, they got married at the Cotton Docks at Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina. This is Ryan’s second marriage and Blake’s first. Good luck, kids. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
It’s not like us to borrow from Neil Young very often, but we often lose sight of our personal guidelines when it’s time to come up with headlines for these posts, so please excuse. Meanwhile, pointedly, here’s Penn Badgley on the New York City set of Gossip Girl, introducing a new member of the cast: his left nipple. That excited vestigial part looks to have remained totally committed in a number of scenes, while the right one stayed in its trailer all day. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
For this reason, and for this reason alone, I’m excited about the upcoming Jeff Buckley bio-pic.
