The directors of Gossip Girl have released a sneak peak of next week’s episode. They have also come out and spoken about it, revealing that this episode is going to be “life changing” for the characters we have come to know and love. For those of you that haven’t watched last week’s episode of Gossip Girl, you may not want to read on because there may be some spoilers in there. For those, up to date on your GG – this is going to be epic. Last we left our fave Upper East-Siders, Blair was still married to Louis, the Prince of Monaco, but desperately unhappy because he promised her it would be a loveless, business arrangement marriage. She also could not get out of it because of the harsh pre-nup and dowry. We also had some interesting things going on with Blair, Chuck and…. Dan.. or, as I like to now refer to them, Dair. Watch what the directors had to say about it all… More »

MAJOR Spoiler Alert Warning
In January of 2011, in the wake of the death of a MAJOR character in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, Joss Whedon gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly magazine where he discussed the ending of the comic book series Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 and spoke a bit about what was to come in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9. The 9th season of BtVS is already in full swing as Issue 6 hits newsstands today … and you are NEVER going to guess the challenge that Buffy Summers faces in this new issue of the comic book series. At the time of his interview last year, Joss revealed that BtVS: Season 9 would be “more like the television show” … but the subject matter of the newest Buffy comic was NEVER featured in the Buffy TV series. The revelation below is a MAJOR SPOILER if you have not read the new comic book yet so proceed with caution. I will tell you that Buffy faces a challenge that she has never faced before … and it is a challenge that is arguably more formidable than any Big Bad villain she has ever faced.

"Nice try, MTV"
MTV has decided to bring back the celebrity prank series Punk’d and in order to do so, they have to play new pranks on celebrities to be aired on the show. This weekend, MTV tried to pull a prank on Neil Patrick Harris … and they failed. Earlier in the day yesterday, NPH tweeted a photo of his partner David Burtka telling his Twitter followers that they were about to enjoy a day of rock climbing. A few hours later, Neil tweeted that the jig was up … he was WELL AWARE that MTV was trying to prank him on Punk’d (apparently, there was a bear involved). I guess he wasn’t supposed to publicly let people know that he knew he was being pranked, so he deleted the follow-up tweets. But you can still read all of the relevant Punk’d tweets and see the photo he posted below. More »
