The purple is back
Chuck’s purple was missing for a few. It was back last night. And as Michelle noted, some sh-t went down. Not the most well-acted episode, but great escapist fun. Group plotting against one thieving bitch with impossible resources. Please! We all dreamed of a similar takedown in high school. And of course the best part, the heart and soul of this show – Blair and Chuck and their endless game of Russian Love Roulette.
The only problem going forward for the writers is that with all this build up, when they finally do make it together, how can they avoid making it anti-climactic?
Here’s Ed Westwick puffing out his nostrils and turning out his feet last night at the Met Gala. But great skin. Good hear. Hot. Unlike his girlfriend Jessica Szohr who looked like asses. Something about her makeup. She’s so much prettier without.
Anyway, the weekly is below. Only Michelle and me. Duana is sick. You can imagine how sick if she missed GG. She needs Colin Farrell but he’s shacked up with a Polish actress. I married a Polish no name. This means Colin and I have one more thing in common than he has with Duana, other than being Irish. This will make her angry. Anger is good for convalescence. I am a good friend.
