Interesting that we were both wrong! I guess that is what we get for assuming too quickly. Yay for Joanna Garcia though I guess they are going to have to dye her hair. I'm rather excited! Can't wait!

Totally doesn't surprise me that it is Nate getting the hook up with Mizz Bree Buckley. Ha ha. Her name sounds so stuck up and pretentious. Totally looking forward to watching the smack down that goes on when she collides with the Upper Eastsiders.

Time for some more spoilers
wrote:Update From E!Online Inside sources tell us exclusively that Duff's character Olivia is a movie star who just wants to live a simple peasant girl's life at college and date a simple unfamous guy. Lucky for her then that Dan doesn't know who she is and that he wants to hook up with her. Yep, not only are Dan and Serena all permanently broken up, but Dan is stepping out on Serena with this new girl Olivia. E!Online

Is the Upper East Side big enough for Serena, Blair and the Duffster?! We're about to find out because the onetime tween sensation is joining Gossip Girl for a multi-episode arc, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The actress-designer-pop chanteuse will play Olivia Burke, a movie star who enrolls at NYU in search of a traditional college experience. She ends up rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) so it's safe to say she'll be majoring in Drama!

Duff will debut in this season's fourth episode, slated to air Oct. 5.

Gossip producers spotted an opening in Duff's schedule after NBC passed on her comedy pilot Barely Legal.

What say you, Gossip gurus? Do you approve of Duff's casting? Thoughts on who she'll be paired with romantically? (My guess: Dan.) Sound off below!

Amy in Pittsburgh: So excited Gossip Girl is back in production! What can you tell us?!
Sorry, Hilary Duff haters, but Duff joins the Gossip Girl cast as movie star Olivia, and she'll be getting her movie-star cooties on the entire cast, not just Vanessa and Dan. Also on Gossip Girl this season, Chuck and Blair are totally getting married and having a million babies. (OK, not that, but they are staying tight. Yay!) And believe it or not, the show really is trending away from "Dan and Serena are the one true pairing of Gossip Girl." Certainly, that arc might turn back sometime in the future, but for now the show is trying to establish their separate identities, apart from their on-again, off-again shenanigans. Is that great news or the worst thing you've ever heard? Post in the comments!

Gervase in Montreal, Quebec: Thanks for the interview with Blake Lively about Papa van der Woodsen. Are we actually going to see Serena's dad this season on Gossip Girl?

TV Diva's Magic 8-ball says: It is decidedly so. We will finally meet Serena's dad this season on Gossip Girl.

Question: Could you reward us with a little Gossip Girl scoop? Just enough to tide us over 'til September? Pretty please? --Jon
Ausiello: There will be a controversial hookup early on in season 3. And one of the participants of said controversial hookup will be Dan. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Question: Is Vanessa from Gossip Girl going to get her own storyline next season? Despite what some may think there is Vanessa love out there. --Jess F.

Ausiello: Yes, she's getting her own storyline. A romance, in fact. With someone she met briefly at the end of last season. Commence with the dot-connecting.

So what do we all think of these spoilers?

I'm not sure what to make of Duff. I personally think I might find it hard taking her character seriously but then again she might be great.

I think the Chuck and Blair news is great, it looks like they might be getting some happy time. Yay!

Here is some more.

From TVGuide.com
When is Gossip Girl going to give Jenny a better story line? — Clarice

MICKEY: Do you hear the Constance girls screaming, Clarice? That’s because Little J was named the new Queen Bee in the season finale. We recently asked Topsy Mopsy, er, Taylor Momsen how she’d fill Blair’s headband. “You know what, I hope she’s a bad queen bee!” she told us. “I’m sure [the writers will] find a way to tie it all together.” My unsolicited idea: Jenny needs a bf who charms Rufus while he corrupts her. She needs to earn that eye makeup!

Casting News

When "Gossip Girl" returns this fall on the CW Network, Serena and company will be sharing the screen with a real-life member of the Manhattan social swirl -- Nacho Figueras.

Figueras, who spends his days playing polo for the Black Watch team and posing for Ralph Lauren's Polo Fragrances, will appear on the season premiere, which airs Sept. 14


Ausiello - July 16th

Question: Now that Mercy will begin on NBC earlier than expected, will Michelle Trachtenberg still be able to fulfill her three-episode arc on Gossip Girl? --Parm
Ausiello: Unfortunately for Blair, yes, she will. The onetime Queen Bee will have a hard enough time adjusting to college life. Georgina's arrival as her roommate in episode 2 compounds her misery tenfold.

Question: I would love the scoop on just how much The CW pays you every time you cover Gossip Girl. I don't doubt that the show has followers, but the coverage EW is giving it has gotten ridiculous! ---Frank
Ausiello: Oooooh, that reminds me: A major Gossip guy decides not to go to college very early in the season. Take your best guess to the comments!

Question: Chuck-Blair scoopage would be delightful! --LH
Ausiello: Look for C and B to take an unorthodox approach to warding off the seven-week itch.


Casting Call - 3.04


[KENNY “KC” CUNNINGHAM] Thirties, female. Open ethnicity. A publicist to the stars, she is hip and sophisticated with a touch of punk rock... Guest star.

[JANE] Legal 18 to 20 to play 16, open ethnicity. One of the new Mean Girl trio at Constance, she is the anxiety-ridden girl at the bottom of the totem pole. Three scenes.

From E!Online

Vanessa in Toronto: Is it true Chuck and Blair are gonna try to have a threesome on Gossip Girl? Tell me they won't go through with it and that it might bring some sexy time for these two? I think we need it as much as they do.
You guys come up with all the best rumors! Our sources tell us there's no threesome between Chuck, Blair and a third player to be named later, but there are a lot of C&B sexcapades happening in Gossip Girl season three. And white-hot angry sex is on the list.

Kelly in Montana: Any scoop on Olivia and Dan's relationship on Gossip Girl?
The newest fabulous Upper East Sider, Olivia (Hilary Duff), likes that Dan doesn't recognize her as a famous movie star.

Clarice in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Any news about Jenny on Gossip Girl?
Jenny's going to have to defend her queendom against the mean girls. Makes sense. Mean girls don't usually surrender the spotlight so easily.

Adam in N.Y.: Anything on Carter Baizen since Sebastian Stan's show Kings is kaput? Is he back on Gossip Girl? He's shady.
Shady Carter is going to be hooking up with Serena! Yes, Serena van der Woodsen and Carter Baizen are going to try to make a go of it in season three of Gossip Girl. Forgive us if we're not optimistic about their long-term prospects.

Penn was spotted walking around with a page of the script.



Here is what it said.

Dan:
Look Georgina, I appreciate that you want a clean slate... but there's a lot of history here... And yeah, it kind of is too much. Sorry.

Georgina:
I understand. I'd feel the same way. Okay. See you around.

Vanessa:
That was a little harsh.

Dan:
What? It's Georgina.

Vanessa:
And you're Dan - I'm sorry... I just thought that you were more forgiveable (?) than that -

Dan:
Are you seriously making me the bad guy here?

Vanessa:
I just think it would be pretty hypocritical to expect people to do (?) a fresh start when we won't (there's a word missing) one to her.

Dan:
I know that you're new to the whole "(can't read)" thing, but trust me, you don't want Georgina Sparks' as your friend. For starters, you'll (can't read) everyone else away.

Vanessa:
Well, you just (can't read) me away.

yelling: Georgina!

I am torn on the Duff thing as well. I have seen her do some great acting so who knows, she might be the best thing to happen to the show. I am going to wiat and see.

I was just looking at some set photos. I'll have to find the links for them later. It would seem that Vanessa is dating Dan and Serena's half brother Scott. There was a shot of them locking lips.

There are also a lot of shots of Chuck and Blair locking lips. So it looks good for them.

You know, I can't say that I care much about Vanessa one way or the other. She is just sort of...there for me.
