Dig up that crossover AU fanfic you wrote in 2006, because it just came true! The OC‘s Adam Brody and Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester have tied the knot in a secret ceremony and now all of your teen fantasies have sprung to life. I mean, we did know it was coming – the pair went public with their relationship this time last year and announced their engagement in November – but still! Excitement! (Or something…)
I never watched either of those shows, so I don’t have much of a connection (or any) to either of those stars, but I do know that people were going crazy for this shit on Tumblr. I’ll tell you what I’m going crazy for right now: House of Cards! I actually started the first season last night and watched five episodes in a row. Now that’s some good TV. But I digress…
From US Weekly:
Gossip Girl would have a field day with this one! Less than three months after news of their engagement went public, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have married in a super-secret wedding, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.
Whoa! Cool “exclusive”, US Weekly! That really told us a lot! No further details are known on the ceremony, like, where it took place and when, who was there, what kind of cake they had, etc. I suppose that’s what US was getting at with the whole “super secret” thing.
I dunno, guys – this one might actually last. Neither of them are really too much in the public eye these days and they’re low key enough to stay out of the tabloids. Do you think this is true love or is it another ill-fated union?

Adam Brody and Leighton Meester aren’t just doin’ it – they’re engaged, according to Us Weekly. It’s like a CW match made in heaven! Gossip Girl meets OC dude. Too bad neither of those shows are on right now. Or then people would care like, 45% more about this. It’s good for the nostalgia.
They met in 2011. He’s 33, she’s 27. I always think of him as being younger. Her, too. Such is the magic of casting.
I wanna see the ring. I feel it will be something like Lauren Conrad’s engagement ring.
What do you think of this engagement?

Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are from such similarly so-bad-they’re-actually-good shows (The OC and Gossip Girl, respectively) that I could barely remember who was from which or if they were actually on the same show or whatever. Then I realized I don’t really care. What I do know, however, is that they came together on the 2011 “dramedy” (awful genre name, guys!) The Oranges, where they fell in looooove… or at least started doing it.
From US Weekly:
It’s like a teenage dream come true! Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, both veterans of the teen drama genre, have been secretly dating for weeks, sources confirm to Us Weekly.
The actors, who costarred in 2011 dramedy The Oranges alongside Catherine Keener and Hugh Laurie, have been “hanging out,” the source tells Us.
“They were always close and friendly,” the insider added, noting that the pair would hang out on occasion during shooting for the film.
Now, anyone born past, uh, YESTERDAY know that “hanging out” means sexin’ it from here ’til Sunday. The problem is, I don’t think I’ve ever cared less about a new Hollywood couple than I do these two. Granted, Gossip Girl is still in my Netflix queue and maybe I’ll eventually watch it one day (though probably not), but I dunno, man. I’d be more excited if one of them decided to date a tree or their vacuum cleaner or something. Remember how Leighton Meester used to date Justin Long? Remember how little you cared about that, too?
Whatever, young love, happy days!

This is an interesting turn of events!
Long time on-again-off-again boyfriend of Drew Barrymoore and uh, actor, I guess, Justin Long is supposedly dating Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester. The two were seen outside of La Poubelle in Hollywood (my roommate totally works at the restaurant up the street from there, guys) holding hands and chatting it up with fans.
Personally I’m loving this coupling because it’s nice to see Justin move on to a new lady and I think I love that Leighton Meester. No, I’ve never seen her show, but I did illegally download a copy of The Roommate several months back, so I’m pretty happy for her too.
I dunno, I find this much more interesting than her co-star’s newest fling. Any objections?

OK, not really, but that’s what the campaign for her new movie The Roommate will have you believe.
These posters have been plastered all over the country, and when you call the number on the poster, you’ll get to hear a short message from “Rebecca”, the character in the film played by Leighton.
Don’t kill me, but I kind of want to see this movie. More than I want to see the other current Meester flick, Country Strong, anyway. When I was home over Christmas, my 14-year old sister was obsessed with the trailer and on my third viewing, it totally clicked: This is a modern update of one of the greatest movies of all time, Single White Female.
Anyone who’s ever had any semblance of a weirdo roommate who’s too up in their business can relate to this, and in this day and age, who hasn’t been there? Between college and craigslist, we’ve all unknowingly wound up in a living situation with a total freak. Thankfully, most of us come out of these situations alive.
While we’re on the subject, why not tell us about your worst roommate situation in the comments. Maybe your Single White Female wasn’t even a live-in, just a psycho disguised as a friend you couldn’t ditch. Either way, I love these stories because they make me feel like less of a freak magnet, so PLEASE tell all!

8Either Autotune Gets More and More Believable Every Day or (Gasp) Gwyneth Paltrow Might Actually Be Able to Sing
So it looks like the Queen of Good Living has gone and done something that I might be interested in checking out. Gwyneth Paltrow is starring in a new movie, Country Strong (yup, just like in the title of the music video above – a title I despise), and the scenes from the movie as depicted in the music video look kind of intriguing.
Why? Because it’s a movie about an alcoholic country star has-been and Gwynnie is playing the lead role. Anything portraying Gwyneth Paltrow as a washed-up has-been that’s being replaced by, well, practically anyone, is worth seeing in my book.
Gwyn plays the country star who unfolds amidst declining record sales, failing tours, a cheating husband that sleeps with the newest country chippie on the block, and her ongoing battle with alcoholism. The flick also stars Tim McGraw as Gwyneth’s husband, and Leighton Meester as the young love interest.
If you’re a country fan (I’m not) and a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow (um, not again), you’ll probably enjoy this movie. If you masochistically enjoy seeing an overblown harpy lose her shit on screen and flex her ‘acting skills’ (like me), you’ll probably enjoy this movie.
That being said, this’ll probably end up being an Academy Award winner. It’s foolproof.
