    I hate cousin Charlie..

    I find her character is very boring indeed…doesn’t bring anything new to the series, at least for now…

  • DAIR

    I’d like to see Dan/Blair relationship … :D

    Are You Kidding Me? -.-
    First Of All They Keep The Parents? They Shouldnt Be In It There Old and Suppose To Be Drama Free and Mature! and These Kids Arnt Kids Any More There Adults. You Dont Need To Live With Mommy Or Go Back To Daddy For Advice.
    Taking Out Jenny and Vannesa Is A Huge Mistake! Vannesa Was The Only One That Was Poor and Kept Balance Now Theres Just Brats On The Show.and Jenny was the type of gurl that fit perfect in the whole show.

    I’m so mad that Dair was cut short. Why tempt us? At least give them a chance. Pull Charlie away from Dan, she is just a replacement!

    No!!! I want Jenny and Vanessa both to be in Gossip Girl next season! I like their characters both very much. Ugh! Well at least I hope they come on the show every once in a while at least and hopefully maybe come back in the sixth season as series regulars which is next year’s fall(not this coming fall). I hope they don’t permanently leave the show though. The show is still great but it won’t be the same without Jenny and Vanessa. I sure am gonna miss seeing them both in GG, I hope they are only leaving temporarily and end up coming back to the show later. If those 2 are gonna be leaving the show for now, then they should have Georgina become a series regular for this season and maybe possibly other later seasons, depending upon what goes on with Jenny and Vanessa and other stuff. But yeah anyway they should make Georgina a series regular in GG. I really love seeing Georgina with her scheming plots and she really spices the show up and makes it really fun and exciting. They should also have Juliet Sharp come into GG as a series regular and make some exciting scenes with her as well. Except this time they should maybe make Juliet and Georgina both become friends with each other and with Serena and they can all do scheming plots together on other people or something. That would be very fun and interesting. lol.

    Maybe that was on purpose so they can shock eveyone on season finale :) ?

    I hate cousin Charlie as well but mostly because they choose such a bad actress for her, Kaylee Defer don’t know how to act. I even prefer Vanessa over Charlie and Vanessa is the person I dislike most in the show.

    im kinda sick of the new people coming in

  • Suthinart_k

    I hate kaylee deefer.You don’t have to be charlie in GG.

  • Lid

    sad that gossip girl just isn’t the same as season 1+2… happy that jenny/taylor momsen isn’t coming back though, she annoys the hell out of me on the show and in real life!

  • Gossip Girl

     What do you think now? Cousin charlie just got a little bit more interesting huh? xoxo

  • A Ka

    Good news that Chuck, Blair, Dan, Nate and Serena will be back in fall!
    But I really hate Charlie! her character is ugly and her voice is really getting on my nerves!
    I can’t wait to see how the whole story is going on!

  • GG !!

    Yeah, I know ! I’m not such a big fan of Vanessa though; and I don’t understand how they’re gonna pull it off, I mean I expected a great drama with the publishing and all, but ‘guess Dan’s just gonna become famous and even more arrogant ^^. Anyways, I do understand that Taylor Momsen is quitting, with her Pretty Reckless-touring and all. + I think she’s outgrown the show (even if I don’t understand how that’s possible) I’m reaaally gonna miss Jenny; she was just the perfect combo of craziness, beauty and rawness… aaaanhows, cutting it =)

  • guest

    AGREED! the regulars have to stay; but Charlie’s just stupid, I liked Reena better, and she wasn’t even a psycho xD. I’m hoping Blair meets someone really cool and rival-like in france ! I think it’s the only way new, interesting people can come…  And I’m so gonna miss Taylor Momsen (Jenny); at least she always brought action with her, and she was the only one actively involved with fashion, which isn’t something that should be missed in GG (just my opinion though)

  • xtie

     vanessa doesnt do anything good in any of the episode. so its wise to ditch her out. 

  • Dabbyapuhin

    but at least they should have put georgina back in the scene, to add some spice on the show. i love her role!

  • Migsassuncion

    nate and blair!!

  • Andrewcastillo1422

    I want Nate and blair t get back together!!

  • Fhskj

    shes not even their cousin 

  • Tessinka22

    i agree, the cousin charlie storyline got boring about 2 minutes after she was first introduced. :( 

  • alamic

    The only thing I have to say is Chuck and Blair have to be together I am sick of them “almost” getting back – I love them as a couple the most out of all. pleaseeeee bring them back and keep them together

  • confused

    I liked vanessa wth did they do to her charater though as of late she no longer makes sense how she has been is totally out of random given her character. I think when they (vanessa,dan and olivia) had that threesome some creepy body snatcher shizz happen cause her charater is totally random and distorted now.

  • xoxo

    Bring back carter, nates character is getting boring… and I love vanessa

  • Agus

     I love charlie she’s georgeus

  • Jonasgal16

     all i want to know is if blair is pregnant with chucks baby! wheres the spoiler for that? lol

  • MysTorri

    great 4th season, but if you can get jenny back for some real crazy and fashion shows that would make season 5 better them them all. btw Blair is my biggest girl-crush EVER!!! and vannessa who? ;)

  • Yana

    Dan – slept with Serena, Vanessa, Charlie, affair with Blair
    Chuck - slept with Blair, Jenny, Vanessa and a dozen more
    Nate - slept with Blair, Serena, Jenny, Vanessa atc.
    Serena - slept with Dan-Nate – epic idiotic triangle
    Blair - slept with Nate, Chuck, kissed Dan
    and so on&on&on…all the characters are like that.

    Are there really any possible ways to make this exciting and stil not that lecherous????

    But I’m still watchling, mainly becouse of Blair’s character, inspiring, great outfits. Serena is useless garbage, no love, friends, education, goal, hobbiess, just blankness. Dan’s just a great failure…
    And the paradox – I’m waiting for season 5. Pathetic))))

  • Lucy :)

    I don’t like any of the parent story lines either. I HATED Vanessa though so I’m glad she’s off!

  • OnlyDEREna

    Dan and Serena is what i want
    the time in that they were togehter was always the best

  • Jami_luvs_u

  • GG

    hate charlie too!! she is such a bad actress and her character is weird

  • Kateski Kt

    I just need Blair and Chuck together… it’s killing me. Charlie is obnoxious, bummer

  • Lee

    I don’t like the actress who plays charlie and i just don’t like the way she acts. She acts a bit like an amateur. And her story wasn’t even all that interesting.

  • Lee

    Jenny and Venessa are original’s why would they just not have them in!!! I understand taylor momsen because she is really killing her reputation with all the flashing she does.

  • Nellie

    i don’t even know who cousin charlie is and i’ve seen every episode…….who’s cousin is she?

  • Nellie

    i don’t even know who cousin charlie is and i’ve seen every episode…….who’s cousin is she?

  • Laura

    THANK YOU!!! Vanessa and Jenny were the most annoying, stupid, hipocrite characters ever… Cousing Charlie is extremely annoying but at least racoon and hollier-than-thou won’t be seen often. They should just give Nate better story lines

  • Chair Lover <3

    CHAIR FOREVER <3

  • Riah

    because everyone knows that Dan is an obnoxious whiney boy and Blair is not going to put up with that. She needs a man who can take care of himself.

  • GG-bestest fan

    I honestly enjoyed watching season 1 & 2 in GG…it was besstt…i’m not a big fan of Charlie and with her being with dan makes it worst…i like dan and vanessa together, taking vanessa and jenny out of GG well i don’t like the idea, and for blair and chunk i prefer them together forever…i tink they both make a good couple in the show off course….but i love GG and i can’t get enough of it….

  • Guest

  • rachel

I don’t get why people are so obsessed with Blair ..i mean wat the hell is so interesting about her..I’m tired of her and chuck’s love story line..i love u ..I don’t love..geezz…

  • ME>

    :( I really liked Jenny’s storyline, my favourite in the series. Idc, I’m still Jenny/Nate. 

  • clolo

    does anyone know wat is serenas motive on geting back with dan

  • Mitchel

    the show is boring without JENNY :)

  • Chloelouise

    They didn’t kick them out they chose to leave & so did Eric Van der woodsen (Connor Paolo) he said & i quote 
    “I’m done. You should never go back in life, only forward.” 

  • Dee

    I agree 100% Vanessa and Jenny were my favorites:( they made a huge mistake in taking them out. The whole balance thing is so true… Ken us character was awesome and Vanessa made it interesting…what were they
    Thinking!!??!!

  • Dee

    Ment to say Jenny where that K word popped up

  • http://twitter.com/LaurieFambrough Laurie Fambrough

    I want Jenny Humphrey to come back! Who is with me???

  • Petpeeve

    It’s too bad they got rid of the 2 characters i liked very much. I don’t like ivy i think she is very manipulative and I can’t wait until she is exposed as the fake she is.
