Hilary Duff to Join the Cast of Gossip Girl


Stunt-casting much? The cast of Gossip Girl is heading off to college (NYU, ‘natch), and they’ll be joined by Hilary Duff, who’ll be playing Olivia Burke, a famous film star in search of the normal college experience (coughOlsentwinscough). The twist? She’s rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr).

I’m sorry, I’m trying very hard to find an angle to this story that I care about, but it’s not happening. The days of GG are numbered, I’ll tell you that. I can only pray that the nauseating NYC Prep will meet a similar fate, and soon.

Jessica Szohr’s Pants: Love It or Leave It?


Really? How far do we have to push the leggings trend? I’m just kind of afraid that we’re one CW starlet away from using them as condoms. (The leggings, that is, not the CW starlets. Although they’re equally plausible in this context.)

Leather Mini!

Ooh, Lindsay, work it, girl!

La Lohan hit up a Stand Up for the Cure event in NYC. It doesn’t look like Samantha was there … but Dina was. Ick. I like Samantha WAY better than Dina as a date for Lindsers.

Also there: Jessica Szohr, Aubrey O’Day, Bethenny Frankel, and Julianna Margulies and her ridiculously hot, young lawyer husband. I want to perform open-pants surgery on him.
