I’ve never actually watched an episode of Gossip Girl, mostly because I don’t give a shit about the “scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite” or teenagers in general. But that’s all about to change now that I’ve seen these pics of Blake Lively. Really, who am I to say the day-to-day challenges of the privileged and self-entitled can’t resonate with Middle America in today’s faltering economy? Who am I to let the clichéd plot and nonsensical character development get in the way? I think it’s time I finally embraced what this show is truly about… and then motorboat them.
