ASK Ausiello – October 9th

Question: Will Chuck and Blair get married in the Gossip Girl series finale? —Annie
Ausiello: Don’t know. I will say that one of them will fail to accomplish an important item on their pre-engagement to-do list, potentially rendering their little agreement null and void.


ASK Ausiello – October 2nd

Question: Gossip Girl‘s final season starts in less than a week, so this week’s Ask Ausiello better have something good on the premiere. Or else. —Dawn
Ausiello: Last I checked the column was called Ask Ausiello not Threaten Ausiello. Having said that, I’ll give you what you want, just promise not to hurt me or my family, K? Herewith are six mild-to-wild spoilers about Monday’s premiere: * Someone is wearing an engagement ring by the end of the episode, but there’s a twist.
* I can confirm that the event featured in these photos is indeed a wedding, but there’s a twist.
* The show’s go-to rehab clinic, The Ostroff Center, has been renamed to reflect current events.
* Blair and Georgina’s bitchy repartee throughout the hour is a thing of immense beauty.
* Dan gives Blair a tough-love speech about her dysfunctional relationship with Chuck that literally leaves his ex speechless.
* Someone has a big secret, and that someone’s initials are BB.
Question: Can you share anything about the Gossip Girl series finale? —Annie
Ausiello: According to some just-leaked casting intel, the swan song will feature a cute and adorable 3-year-old boy with dark hair and eyes. You thinking what I’m thinking? ‘Cause I’m thinking that little rascal could be Chuck and Blair’s firstborn.
I wanted to add something. We know many things of the first spoiler already so no need to comment. But the second spoiler is clearly fake, giving they are still filming 6.09 and Ausi is the biggest troll we’ve ever seen. He wouldn’t write something nice for CB fans even if they paid him billions, hehe. So take it as that. I’d really love for something like this to be true, but we’ll see, he might be true in his douchiness! lol.

ASK Ausiello – September 4th

Question: Will Gossip Girl‘s premiere jump ahead a few months? Or will it pick up right where the finale left off? —Sandy
Ausiello: The answer to both questions is yes. The opener picks up where May’s cliffhanger left off as a means to quickly “check in with all of the characters,” explains exec producer Stephanie Savage. “And then we jump ahead four months to present day.”

Question: We haven’t really had many Gossip Girl tidbits about Chuck and Blair. Care to fix that? — Danielle
Ausiello: That trailer pointing to a reconciliation for the star-crossed Upper East Siders “is not misleading,” confirms exec producer Stephanie Savage, who teases that “things get pretty steamy” between them in their hotel room in Monte Carlo. “But the stakes are really high. They can’t rush into anything or do anything half-baked.”

As always, thanks for telling what we already knew thanks tothe  callsheets. Hehe.

ASK Ausiello – August 14th

Question: Blair has been wearing a ring on a necklace in all the Gossip Girl location pictures this season. Any idea why? —Kayla

Ausiello: I’m guessing it’s a symbol of the special pact she makes with Chuck in the premiere, but I could be wrong. (In case you’re wondering, said agreement involves them getting their personal crap together before committing to each other for good.)
Basically sort of what we thought. Nothing new Ausi, nothing new. It seems as fans know more than spoiler sources, haha.

Ausiello Blind Item Update

Yesterday in his usual spoiler chat, Ausiello said that the show where the unexpected wedding will happen, is on The CW.

Question: Your latest Blind Item about the fall wedding — is it an ABC primetime show? Jacklyn
Ausiello: Sure ain’t. The show in question airs on The CW.

After Ausi posted his spoilers, the writers tweeted something. Weird, isn’t it? Most of the times they have tweeted lately, they wrote at late night Los Angeles time (the time in my stamp is the time set on my twitter, I live in GMT +1). I’m not saying this means anything but I know the person who asked him the question about Serena (only GG question of the post) and she said she also asked about CB but Ausi cropped her Q. Ausi also RT’d Josh Schwartz last week, after he posted the pic of the 6×01 script. Connections everyone? Moreover, if you’ve read the casting calls you saw they wanted flower girls, violin players (or other instrument players) and such extras.

Ausiello Blind Item: Which Primetime Soap Sweethearts Are Planning a Fall Wedding?

Since I’m currently on assignment in the Pacific Northwest — between us, I’m hunting down a slice of cherry pie and a damn fine cup of coffee — AA will be MIA this week.

But, to tide you over until next time, I’m dishing out a blind item that I suspect many of you will find just as satisfying.

It concerns a primetime soap that, although popular, came thisclose to getting the axe at season’s end — and just when a pair of its well-liked lovebirds were heading for a reunion, too. Now I hear that, when the show returns this fall, it’ll pick up right where it left off and pleasantly surprise fans by immediately marrying off the star-crossed couple in question.

All of which brings us to my questions for you: What’s the show? And who’s the duo? Share your guesses below, and, as always, keep an eye on my Twitter feed for clues. If I do manage to score that damn fine cup of coffee, the jolt of caffeine might inspire me to reveal more than I should!



The reasons why I posted this blind item are evident. Gossip Girl should had been axed after season fail 5. It is at its last season, it is popular although its popularity highly decreased through the last two years. Chuck and Blair didn’t reunite in the finale but we know since the show will only have ten episodes, that it won’t be soon before long that happens anyway. We have all the points he described, checked. I don’t want to give you false hopes, but everything can be.

ASK Ausiello – May 8th

Question: I think the Gossip Girl fandom has exploded after watching the promo for next week. Is there anything that you can tell us about what’s in store for us in the finale? —Marie
Ausiello: I have three tidbits for you, all of them extremely vague:

* Someone will “see” Gossip Girl.
* The final scene of the episode will feature two characters – one male, one female.
* The aforementioned final scene does not take place in New York.


I really think the point #2 and #3 will be the Casino pics ;)

ASK Ausiello – April 24th

Question: Love Gossip Girl…and your scoop! But as a Chuck and Blair fan, should I even be excited for the upcoming episodes? —Mary Kate
Ausiello: I’m going to sidestep your question and instead tell you that at least four of the nearly two dozen [Spoiler]‘d out entries on TVLine’s 2012 May Sweeps Scorecard belong to Gossip Girl.



What are your thoughts on the Scorecard? In which categories would GG fit? Interviews Josh Safran about Chuck and Blair and more

Get out your cell phones for a very important blast: Gossip Girl is back this Monday (The CW, 8/7c), and there’s muchado on the Upper East Side. TVLine chatted with executive producer Josh Safran about what’s in store as the show heads into a “lighter” spring.

TVLINE | Blair and Chuck reunited in the fall finale, but Blair is getting married to Louis in the 100th episode. What’s changed?
I wouldn’t say necessarily that Blair is getting married to Louis in the 100th episode, but there definitely is an event scheduled. What happens at that event is TBD. You’re going to find out [Monday] what has happened. There’s a significant time jump between Episodes 10 and 11. A lot of the episode is told in flashback as to what really happened. You’ll definitely learn why they’ve gone from professing their future plans to each other in the back of the limo to Blair walking down the aisle with Louis. … All I can say is more so than ever, [Monday’s] episode very much takes place from Chuck and Blair’s point of view.
