One of my secret indulgences is Gossip Girl — my favorite TV show at the moment. Although I very rarely watch TV, this is an exception. I am having so much fun watching the young New York’s Upper Eastsiders have their adventures in the City — and in other glamorous parts of the world as well.
For those of you who are not as obsessed as I am about the show, and do not understand what I am talking about, Gossip Girl is an American young adult drama series based on the book of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesen. Narrated by the omniscient, yet unseen blogger “gossip girl” the series revolves around the lives, romances and notoriety of privileged young college boys and girls on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City.
There is an “it” girl, a modern-day queen with a certain “attitude,” several princesses, a beautiful cast, lots of parties, twists, turns, betrayals, backstabbing, manipulations, gossip, hook-ups, break-ups…hook-ups again…break-ups again…and so on… What a modern-day drama for the young set in New York City — glamorous drama! Sometimes I wonder, “why didn’t I have this much fun during my FIT days in New York City? I remember the fashion, I remember dating a few guys from Columbia, but, I don’t remember having that many fun complications. Oh! now it’s slowly coming back…
I remember my “best friend” Domenica backstabbing me and trying to steal my possible future “boyfriend” Dimitri (a Columbia student from Athens), I remember Leo, Dimitri’s friend (a serious financier in London today, and a serious womanizer), who at that time, he was “seriously” dating my friend Anna… and he was pursuing me as well…I remember my friend Stephan (a British-French banker from Brown University) who was dating a beautiful soap opera actress named Amanda and he was pursuing Carole (my French girlfriend)… who was in a serious relationship with Frank… and yet, she was not…I remember Stephan’s friend Johan (a beautiful Swedish man working at Citibank)… and that I had a serious crush on him…and all this was happening while I was in an “on-again-off-again” relationship with a very complicated young man named Michael (a computer engineering student living in Brooklyn Heights) whose roommate Nico was… you get the story: the more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s history repeating in New York City.
I get a thrill watching this modern-day drama. I especially get a thrill when they are honoring me by wearing my jewelry as they did in Season 4. The new season 5 premiers on September 26th, and I can’t wait! You must watch!
