... just got a little better after watching Gossip Girl
Oh GG, how I love thee. I've always been kind of 'meh' on Leighton Meester, but after watching this weeks GG I love her! She's so fabulously douchey and wonderful as Blair. Seriously, Blair greeting Jenny in her see-through white robe and micro nightgown, and then inviting Jenny upstairs to 'help her change', her ass in Jenny's face the whole time they were going up the stairs only to then prance around Jenny in her frilly underwear, before lounging seductively on her bed while seducing Jenny over to the dark-side was such good fun. Not to mention the fact that she left Serena staring after her longingly as she ascended the stairs in her see-through robe a scene earlier. Honestly, Serena looked broken hearted, and really if Blair decided that she wasn't going to snuggle with me on the couch and watch Breakfast at Tiffany's
while we ate croissants like we always used to, I'd be pretty broken hearted too. Note to Blake: Gay it up, Leighton's stealing your shocking pink thunder!
All in all, episode two of GG was far more entertaining than the pilot and I'm looking forward to next week. Kelly Rutherford doing her best impression of Julie Cooper was also awesome. I do love my fabulously bitchy women.Damages
also started out in the most deliciously gay way as well. I always kind of shipped Ellen/Patty, they totally remind me of a TV version of Miranda/Andy (only I think Patty Hewes might actually be MORE devious than Miranda Priestly, which is quite an accomplishment), so the episode opening with Ellen and Patty sitting closely together on Patty's small couch as Ellen looks over at her tenderly was the bestest.
Patty: He called off the engagement?
Ellen: (gazing over at Patty) Maybe we went to far. (slight pause and more gazing) Do you regret what we did?
Don't be silly Ellen, she could never regret making sweet love to you! The only thing she could regret is that it took you both so long to realize how you felt about each other.
In all seriousness though, this show continues to rock. Glenn Close is brilliant, and I'm liking that Rose Byrne is getting a bit more to do with Ellen now. I have to say that I really want to know what's going to happen though. Stop teasing me Damages
, no more foreplay!
And on a final note, I'm now completely hooked on The Devil Wears Prada
Miranda/Andy fic. I've been gorging myself on it and I cannot get enough. I've even watched the movie again twice now since reading thelastgoodname
's When in Doubt, Wear Red
. The obsession is so sweet, but I'm going into withdrawal now. I need moar!Edited:
Because I forgot to mention that I also really liked the Dirty Sexy Money
pilot. "I hate you!", lol. That was a fun first episode. "I had aaaaa scotch!" oh, Karen. I already love Jeremy, Karen, Juliet and think that the storyline with Billy Baldwin and his transgender lover, Carmletia, is sweet (*loves Candis Cayne*)
