But in two years when her contract is up. She is announcing it now to let the word out to the film industry, so they can start developing scripts for her.\
So that in two years, she have plenty of scripts to choose from.
Uh oh, get the support group (and that other thread) ready:%0D\
Shelly, Bonnie, McLean, Delta, Suzanne, get up! You need to go to Leighton Meester''s home. Your exemplary services are needed!
Dave Caruso, only survivor
It''ll be schadenfreude when this twit flop-er-oos.\
Note to Miss Meester: Honeybun, you ain''t all that!
[quote]so they can start developing scripts for her.\
Oh, honey. you need a mental health check up.
Okay, OP is exaggerating. She said she''s not renewing her contract and plans to leave in 2 years when it''s up. Given that everyone on the show wants out, I assume no one is renewing their contract. The part about announcing it now so scripts can be developed for her is complete BS. She said no such thing.
Yeah, me too.
At least Blake Lively has Ben Affleck to get her in the movies... Leighton, better call Matt Damon and see if he''s interested....
She''s going to have to fight Minka Kelly for the same roles. Who can tell them apart?
I hope what happens to the Dawsons Creek people happen here. Blake Lively is kind of like Katie Holmes-the ''star'' of the show, the promising film career, and yet it all fizzled out because she actually has no talent and married a robot.%0D\
Hopefully Leighton (who is by far the most talented actor on the show) can carve a Michelle Williams type of career for herself. %0D\
The boys can all disappear for all I care.
Gossip Girl would have to call it a day if she left. She carries that show.
This season will be her last year
The show is already played out anyway.
She is the only thing worth watching and the only actor who can make their horrid scrips seem almost clever at times.
This season will probably be the show''s last anyway.
Great move, Leighton!
David Caruso, Shelly Long
The show has been coasting on fumes since the second season.\
It was fun for a brief while . . .\
I watched The Lincoln Lawyer last night and was struck by how the silly Chuck Bass hoarse whisper is so much a copy of Ryan Phillipe''s voice. \
Even though Ryan Phillipe is a straight guy, he talks like the queeniest gay on the planet who is very self-consciously trying to butch it up. That''s what Chuck Bass sounds like, too.
David Caruso and Shelly Long left their respective shows as they were peaking in popularity. "Gossip Girl" is well past its freshness date and is in decline.
[quote] "So that in two years, she have plenty of scripts to choose from."%0D\
The first season was the best. If it weren''t for Leighton, Gossip Girl would be damn near unwatchable. The girl is talented, but her movie choices are complete shit. I have no idea how Blake Lively keeps on getting these high profile roles and Leighton is stuck doing schlocky horror and teenybopper movies with Selena Gomez. She''s so much better than that.
Actually, there''s no "Oh dear," r19. There''s no rule prohibiting ending sentences with prepositions, though many people mistakenly assume there is.\
Indeed, when an editor complained to Winston Churchill that he had written a book which has sentences ending in prepositions, Churchill responded, "That is something with which I will not up with put!"
Leighton Meester will cut a bitch.
Minka Kelly is hot hot hot.
I doubt the show has two years left in it anyway.
"I have no idea how Blake Lively keeps on getting these high profile roles"\
Oh, I do.
I heard they are going to hire Fiona Shaw as an unknown older sister, who spent her formative years growing up in the UK, in a working-class family. She discovers her birthright, moves to NYC and becomes the new Queen Bee. Face it, Fiona can totally pull this off.
Casting agent for the CW
Older sister to whom??
Read it again, r21. A little word like "will" will help the sentence tremendously!
Not the "oh dear" troll
Leighton will do very well.
I have been catching up on previous seasons on DVD (yeah, I know but Blockbuster rents them for $0.49 per. These seasons are not available free on the Internet; at least I couldn''t find them). Just finished watching Seasons 1 and 2. %0D\
As someone posted upthread, it was stupid of the CW to think it could go beyond HS. If they''d been smart, they should have started with prep school and finished with HS. Kind of hard to believe these kids would act the same way once in college.%0D\
Must say this though, I was totally shocked by Ed Westwick''s pronounced English accent! I knew he was English but WOW!%0D\
Muffy, the Lost Van Der Woodsen
The "Valley Girls" episode of Gossip Girl help kill the momentum. The show ended the second season on a slightly-better-than-mediocre note and I haven''t been back since. \
Fun fact: Leighton''s older brother was the catalyst for the USAFA rape/sexual assault scandal back in the early 00s.
Other fun fact: Leighton was born in prison!
It''ll be appropriate, then, when she dies there as well.
She wants to become a movie star, and someday win an Oscar.
She''ll have to settle for riding in the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile during the Texas State Fair.
Blake Lively, star
Wait... Gossip Girl is still on?
Leighton Meester ''wants custody of brother'' after accusing mother of spending money sent for him
Another fun fact:\
Leighton''s father and her uncle were co-founders of the ''80s band Mr. Mister. \
Before the band was signed to a label, the group was called Meester Meester, but the label wouldn''t go for it -- hence, Mr. Mister.\
I made up every bit of that, above.
[quote]As someone posted upthread, it was stupid of the CW to think it could go beyond HS.\
Why? It certainly worked for the original "90210," plus the original GG source novels extend into their college years.\
[quote]The "Valley Girls" episode of Gossip Girl help kill the momentum.\
You do know that it was supposed to be a de facto pilot for a spinoff set in the ''80s and focusing on Lily''s childhood exploits, right? I disagree that it killed the momentum of the show. No, what''s fucked it up lately is the writers'' apparent 180-degree mid-season turnaround to kill a potentially awesome storyline -- Blair and Dan getting together as a couple -- and have Blair end up with Chuck yet *again* (and the Monaco prince storyline is just a brief speed-bump in that tale).
Who is this woman? Do you pronounce her name Layton or Leeton? I''ve never heard of her, and I don''t think she''s all that pretty either.
She''s telling us NOW so she doesn''t have to tell us LATER!
The only reason I''ve ever heard of her is because she was in the "Good Girls Go Bad" video with Starship Cobra.
meester? i think i dated u seester.
The first season, or the first part of the first season, was really great. But the writers strike really fucked up the momentum and it never really recovered. Each season has been progressively worse. They''ve never lived up to the promise of those first 7-8 episodes.
Any word on her quitting music too?
Happy Gilmore thought he killed the "Meester, Meester" lady when he dropped the air conditioner on her.
I''m tired of the seester threads, r50!
"Leighton intentionally assaulted Constance by throwing her to the ground and repeatedly hitting her with a bottle," the legal papers say.\
HOLY SHIT, Leighton is TRASH
hitting her MUTHA with a BOTTLE?
LMAO @R55. \
She *is* a native Texan who was born in prison.

[italic] OH MY SIDES!!!!! [/italic]%0D\
I can''t stop laughing!!
Her mom should''ve knocked Leighton on her keester!!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
