Our No. 1 guilty pleasure, the CW's Gossip Girl, returned Monday night after a hiatus of several election cycles. As in, forever.
While the writers were out on strike, the economy tanked, making the exploits of Manhattan's spoiled and trust-fund teens even more absurd.
Titled "The Blair Bitch Project," Blair returned to her previous despicable behavior. Thank Bergdorfs. Who, after all, wants a nice Blair?
The horrible puns continue. Blair's Russian maid awoke her charge from the bed announcing "Club Bed vacation cancelled." There was talk of "Upper East Side-borgs." The clones came out in droves. There was a Breakfast at Tiffany's parody. Class issues continued. Jenny stole a Valentino to buy a Dolce. She lied, rose and fell and rose in the social heirarchy, and all in one episode!
