GOSSIP GIRL: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON




On DVD August 18, 2009
Just in Time for the Season Three Premiere on The CW

BURBANK, CA (May 27, 2009) - The sophomore season of one of television’s hottest properties graduates to DVD when Warner Home Video releases Gossip Girl: The Complete Second Season on August 18, 2009. Developed for television by Josh Schwartz (Chuck, The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (The O.C.), Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively (New York, I Love You), Leighton Meester (Entourage), Penn Badgley (Forever Strong), Chace Crawford (The Haunting of Molly Hartley), Taylor Momsen (We Were Soldiers), Ed Westwick (Children of Men), Jessica Szohr (What About Brian), with Kelly Rutherford (Melrose Place) and Matthew Settle (Brothers & Sisters). The second season of Gossip Girl enjoyed a 43% increase in ratings among women 18-34.

The seven-disc set includes all 25 episodes from the second season and nearly four hours of special features, including all-new featurettes, unaired scenes, gag reel, and a downloadable audiobook of Gossip Girl: You Know You Love Me by Cecily von Ziegesar, read by Christina Ricci. Gossip Girl: The Complete Second Season is priced to own on DVD at $59.98 SRP.

It’s senior year for our beloved Upper East Siders, and the drama is at an all-time high. Applying for college is only one small part of the story, as new romances (and some not-so-new romances) bloom and fade, scandals erupt at every turn and alliances shift even faster than Gossip Girl can send an update. Families and reputations are destroyed and made; so are fortunes. And even the strongest friendships are tested. In this sizzling season two, you never know what’s next for Serena, Blair, Dan, Nate, Jenny, Chuck and Vanessa. Good thing Gossip Girl is always there to provide us with the latest, juiciest info!

The series is from College Hill Pictures, Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Paramount Television Inc. Gossip Girl is based upon the popular series of young-adult novels by Cecily von Ziegesar. The show’s executive producers are Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Leslie Morgenstein (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies), Bob Levy (the forthcoming The Vampire Diaries) and John Stephens (Gilmore Girls, The O.C.)

"Gossip Girl" actress Blake Lively was so against co-starring with boyfriend Penn Badgley in the hit TV series, she "poisoned" their castmates against the actor after he landed his role.

The couple, former childhood classmates, has shared the small screen since the TV drama made its debut in 2007, but the blond beauty admits she wasn't always a big supporter of her real-life leading man, after learning he had won over her new bosses and was trailing her acting career.

She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "At first I was so upset that they hired him. I actually poisoned the whole cast against him. But then they noticed that he wasn't a jerk and was actually a really nice, charming person.

"Almost immediately I realized that too, but it took me about a week to admit it."

But her volatile three-year marriage to the children's father was already at the breaking point.

So when she was three months pregnant, Kelly, 40, made the heart-wrenching decision to leave her husband, Daniel Giersch, and have the baby on her own. Their daughter, Helena Grace, was born on June 8 in LA. Now, for the first time since the controversial split, Kelly is speaking out.
