Most of us remember the days of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, strutting across our screens. We were OBSESSED with Gossip Girl, it took over our lives.

From the romance between Blair and Chuck Bass, to the big reveal of who the secret character behind the mayhem was; it had us hooked.

Now, a reboot of The CW series may be coming to our screens, an executive producer has revealed. Stop the world, we're getting off. This is major goss…

Yup, that's right. We're going right back to the Upper East Side, and discussions have reportedly taken place about bringing the original drama back.

The series starred Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley, and aired from 2007 until 2012. Let's not forget that none other than Kristen Bell narrated it too.

The show followed the glamorous (not to mention absurd) lives of a group of upper-class teenagers living in the prestigious areas of Manhattan.

The trends it inspired are still around today, it had an unprecedented amount of influence on the youth who tuned in to watch it.

Gossip Girl was a massive hit for the American TV network The CW, and president Mark Pedowitz has confirmed it could get a reboot.

According to Deadline, he said: “There’s been discussions. But I don’t know if we’re there yet.”

Pedowitz also added that the return would depend on Warner Bros., who own The CW, and showrunners Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.

We've seen all 121 episodes about a million times, but my GOD we want more.

We all love staying in a hotel on holiday, and many of us will indulge in a little room service; but if you find picking up the phone and speaking to an actual human being a bit much, the Aloft Manhattan Downtown Hotel may have the answer.

The hotel has just launched Text it, Get it (or TiGi for short), a service that allows you to request things simply by sending an emoji. 

On arrival, guests are presented with a menu of "packages", which they can request by texting a specific emoji to hotel staff. 

If you request The Hangover Package, for instance, you will get two bottles of water, painkillers and two bananas, while The Munchies Package will bring junk food to your door. 

The Aloft seems to be the first hotel to make this service available to it's customers, however, it's not an entirely new idea. 

In January, Brooklyn bar Sunken Harbour Club, launched an entire emoji menu and BurgerBurger in London also allows you to order gourmet burgers via emoji. 

It seems like emoji's just might take over the world yet!


He and Kourtney split three months ago – and it now seems that Scott Disick has well and truly moved on.

In fact, numerous sources say that the reality TV star and Lindsay Vrckovnik – a striking model from Canada – are now very much an item.

Despite an age-gap of some 14 years, the duo have been repeatedly spotted together in New York in recent weeks, with friends saying that Mr Disick in particular is 'bowled over' by the 18-year-old platinum blonde beauty.

And according to TMZ, on Tuesday Scott, 32, and Lindsay kicked-off a bar crawl in Manhattan. They evidently had a blast too: they stayed out until 6am on Wednesday.

Kourtney, meanwhile, was out and about for meetings in Los Angeles yesterday morning.

Looking stunning in high-waisted stripped pants and a black vest, the 36-year-old mother-of-three's demeanour certainly didn't suggest she was in anyway upset by her former partner's new romance.

Ordinarily based in Toronto, 5ft 9in, size-6 Lindsay Vrckovnik moved to New York only recently to study at the renowned Parsons School Of Design.

She just finished secondary school this summer and is believed to have met Scott while on a night out in Manhattan. 

TMZ now reports that the love-birds have headed to South Beach in Florida for some sun and sand. 

Staying at the swish Setai Hotel, the website states that Scott was 'very flirty' with his new lady friend.

"At least he's spending time with a kid… just not his own," TMZ adds.



She's definitely a fan of Latex attire – and was just days ago spotted rocking a skin-tight leather mini-skirt which flashed plenty of leg. 

It doesn't look like Kim Kardashian intends on changing up her look anytime soon either: she's been spotted AGAIN in seriously teeny-tiny attire. 

Although she kept on the same, over-the-knee black boots in suede as well as the same Balmain coat with gold-button detail, the 34-year-old swapped her beige ripped tee for a black one.

And in lieu of the leather wrap-around skirt she wore on Saturday, she instead donned a spray-on effect number – also in leather.

The reality TV star, now six months into her second pregnancy, was last night out with her elder sister, Kourtney, 36.

Based in New York for Fashion Week – they headed for dinner at the swish Il Mulino in Uptown Manhattan (where a shrimp cocktail starter is priced at €25 and champagne truffle ravioli is €45).

Kourtney herself didn't hold back in the style stakes either: she wore a full-length satin robe under which she had on black thigh-high boots.

It was quite the family affair too: momager Kris, as well as sisters Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie were all in attendance.



We’d have thought a whole heap of graduates and fashionistas-in-the-making would give up their Hermes bag to nab an internship with The Row.

But it seems that one disgruntled former employee is less than happy with her lot.

Indeed, Shahista Lalani is suing Dualstar, the parent company run by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen which also oversees The Row – for wage theft.

Now a designer herself, Shahista also reckons that around 40 past and present interns are in her position: overpaid and underworked.

A graduate of the prestigious Parsons School Of Design in Manhattan, she worked under The Row’s head technical designer for five months.

“She was very demanding,” Ms Lalani recalled. “I was doing the work of three interns. I was talking to her all day, all night. Emails at nighttime for the next day, like 10pm.”

Ms Lalani even claimed she was hospitalised for dehydration because of the job’s demands: the 29-year-old stated that she worked in 38C New York summer heat, carrying “like 50lbs worth of trench coats”.

The Canadian native also said she put in 50-hour weeks “inputting data into spreadsheets, making tech sheets, running personal errands for paid employees, organising materials, photocopying, sewing, pattern cutting, among other related duties”.

“You’re like an employee, except you’re not getting paid. They’re kind of mean to you.

“Other interns have cried. I’d see a lot of kids crying doing coffee runs, photocopying stuff,” Ms Lalani furthermore claimed.

And while she never worked directly for the Olsens, both 29, she said she saw them occasionally at meetings.

“They’re really nice people,” she said. “They were never mean to anyone. They’re business people.”

Former child-stars the Olsens launched The Row, named as an homage to the precision of Savile Row tailoring, in 2004 with a simple white t-shirt. 

The label now turns over tens of millions annually creating uber-expensive, high-end clothing and accessories.


Madonna thinks she can get away with just about anything and this just proves she can. The singer was due to take part in jury duty in New York recently but she decided to skip it because she had other plans. Watch the video for the full story.
