Last night’s Gossip Girl involved way too much Jenny.  Thus, I saw far too much platinum weave and racoon eye makeup.  But enough about the girl who once played sweet little Cindy Lou Who in Jim Carrey’s version of The Grinch… let’s talk about the threesome!

 

Oh wait, why bother?  It was not the delicious juicy scandal that it was made out to be.  Parents these days — they’re not very bright.  What they don’t realize is that any kissing threesome their teenager sees on TV has more than likely also been seen by that kid in person.  Oh hell it may have even involved their kid.  So parents, if you’re reading this: BEWARE.  Your kids are not as naive as you think.  They’re just little sociopaths waiting for a chance to fully blossom.

Last night’s Gossip Girl reminded me of the many reasons why I came to fall in love with this show in the first place.  The twists!  The turns!  Georgina melodrama!  Here’s some of the best squabbles and foils of the evening:

1.  Carter Baizen is set up by Blair and Chuck so Serena will stop dating him.  After Carter helped S ruin his business meeting, Chuck was oh-so-happy to participate.

 

2.  Meanwhile, however, Georgina is causing trouble for Bluck (that’s their couple moniker).  She gives Blair a fake invitation for a collegitate secret society and an assignment to buy an old portrait up for auction.  Problem is, her friend works at the office of some guy Chuck is trying to woo into doing business with him.  The secretary convinces Chuck that he also needs to buy the portrait, and then the bidding war begins.  Chuck always wins in the end, though.
