Blake Lively is back in New York after spending Ryan Reynolds’s birthday weekend with him in Boston. Here she is working on Gossip Girl with ex-boyfriend Penn Badgley. Blake moved beyond Penn. She waited patiently, killing time with Leonardo DiCaprio, until Ryan Reynolds, the main target, became available and finally agreed to check her out. Penn doesn’t appear to hold this against her. Maybe he’s a big fan of her big baller game too.

Is her smug happiness part of the scene? Or her smug happiness to do with the fact that she’s the one delivering cute balloon puppy gifts to what Scarlett Johansson regrets leaving? Click here to see some pretty adorable photos of Blake with Ryan the other day by his trailer. Look at her expression, as she’s peering around the door, as his head is turned back at her. You may be convinced that it was Leo who dumped her, but she’s doing a great job convincing everyone otherwise that she had a better offer while he continues to do the same - interchangeable models prompting an undeniable ennui. He just became LESS interesting. Because Blake’s not around.

And how does she keep DOING that?
