Whether this is real or an incredible publicity stunt, these actors are young and, you know, hooking up is what you do when you are young. I mean, Ed and Chace have both been seen with cougar-in-training Drew Barrymore, with Ed photographed kissing her. Ed has a reputation around New York City as quite the party boy so it’s not completely unbelievable that he had a tryst with a cast member. He has the same issues most men have when they come to NYC with a lot of money and sudden fame: he is here to play and play hard. Anyone who runs into him at The Waverly Inn is warned: that ticket is probably only good for one ride.
Other Gossip Girl news is that there might be another show in the works. Jossip reports that the network is considering a spin-off centered on Jenny Humphrey and her budding fashion career. Whether this is a bit of a stretch or not (I personally cannot imagine an entire show around the character of Jenny), I am interested to see if there is any character separation between the character Jenny and actress Taylor Momsen’s recent turn to the dark side. Our little girl is growing up fast and it might be hard to keep her in the innocent little sister role for long, as evidenced by her recent tryst with Nate (Chace Crawford).
What’s happening next week on our favorite show about oversexed teenagers? What can it teach us about our own love lives? Not a lot, just that bad boys will be bad boys and the rumors of a spin-off and relationships between the cast members is worthy of at least one Bloody Mary worth of conversation. Stay tuned gossip fans. XOXO, YourTango.
