This post is ALLL about Gossip Girl & is basically a 'Gossip Girl 101 for Dummies' crash course. I think it would be considered wise for you to read this before watching Gossip Girl. I'll try not to include spoilers, just basic character outlines & any other need-to-knows. :)
Charles 'Chuck' Bass.
The gazillionare. The bad-boy. The flirt. He like his hundred dollar bills, cold & with side-serving of hookers. Just like his martinis. Chuck has many nicknames: Bass-hole, Mother-Chucker, Bass-tard, just to name a few.
Daniel 'Dan' Humphrey.
The 'Lonely Boy' from Brooklyn. He's a writer. Kind of a nerd. But a cute nerd, who unfortunately like everyone else gets chewed up & spat out by the Upper-East Side. But none the less he's still the good boy & the teacher's pet.
Jennifer 'Jenny' / 'Little J' Humphrey.
The little sister of Dan. Wannabe Fashionista. Loves designing & getting with alllll the wrong people. Little J goes from cute sister to Gothic Barbie in 0.3 seconds. Some people blame her connections or her rebellions but everyone really knows that it was the Upper-East Side that got to her.
Another Brooklynite. Old friend of Dan's. Comes back into Dan's life & instead of falling back into his arms as she may have wished, the Upper-East Side claims another victim.
Eric van der Woodsen.
Is the absolutely adorable little brother of Serena. He tried to commit suicide when he was 13 & has had a bit of hard time. He has Daddy issues & you find out early on in the series that he's actually gay. He's one of my favourite characters & also not so tainted by the Upper-East Side. He reminds me of a cute puppy; loyal, friendly & down-to-earth.
And last but not least...
Gossip Girl, herself.
The blogger, the stalker, the only one you've got to worry about. Make your life a living hell? Yep, she can do that. No-one knows who she really is, but she sure has her finger on the ball. I don't think we'll ever know, it just adds to intrigue!
Well, what are you waiting for? Fashion, High-School & lifestyle on the Upper-East Side awaits.
