As you may have heard, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen broke up. Maria covered it yesterday in Smutty Social Media and, as she wrote, we didn’t think it needed its own standalone post. Joanna, however, advocated strongly in favour of it because she’s in favour of anything Canadian, which is what we love about her. She also tried to tell me today that millennials care about Hayden and Rachel. Really? Because I’ll tell you who millennials do care about: Leighton Meester and Adam Brody. I’m not a millennial and I care about them.
If the story this week had been that Leighton and Adam had broken up, they definitely would have gotten their own dedicated post. That said, they have not broken up. In fact, Leighton was with Adam a couple of days ago at the premiere of Big Bear:

This week also happens to be the 10th anniversary of the premiere of Gossip Girl which means it’s been 10 years since we met the irrepressible, indefatigable Blair Waldorf. I spent last night reading Gossip Girl retrospectives and getting mad all over again about the fact that Blake Lively is a bigger deal that Leighton Meester which is a point I know I repeat too often but only because….WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY???
