Entertainment behind the scenes
The upcoming threesome episode on “Gossip Girl” seems to be getting everyone’s knickers in a twist, even before the much-anticipated episode of the scandalous TV show about rich New York teens airs on Monday.
The TV watchdog group the Parents Television Council says the “3SOME” tryst is “reckless and irresponsible” in view of the “impressionable teenagers” that it says are the show’s main target , and has urged affiliates of the CW network not to air it.
Fans of the show however, seem to be more concerned about trying to figure out which of the fabulously rich, beautiful young things — now out of high school and supposedly at college — will be involved in the three-way hookup.
Judging by the bed-hopping enjoyed so far by the characters on the show, pretty much any of them could be persuaded (or maybe tricked?) into a brief menage a trois, although we’re betting that bad boy Chuck (Ed Westwick) and scheming Blair (Leighton Meester) will be playing a major role.
The lovelorn vampires of “Twilight” will vie for top honors at the Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 9 with the singing stars of “High School Musical 3: Senior Year.”
Actress Leighton Meester, best known for her role as Blair Waldorf in the TV show “Gossip Girl,” has been named as FHM Online’s hottest star on TV this fall — while comedy “Kath and Kim” has topped its list of shows most likely to be axed.
The 22-year-old actress who was born in a Texas prison, beat Hayden Panettiere from “Heroes” and Madeline Zima from “Californication” for the title.
Seven actors from the program, which tells about privileged teens growing up in Manhattan, were picked for the magazine’s story — posted on its Web site on Monday — of up-and-coming actors and actresses in Hollywood, including Blake Lively (pictured at right), who plays an elite New York prep school student in “Gossip Girl.”
