But I have also heard that it might be 6 or 9 new episodes. We will see.

Blake Lively Talks Nose Job Rumors

Credit: OK! Magazine

Thanks to speculation in the tabloids, rumors are now circulating that Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively had a nose job. According to reports — and questionable photographic evidence — the 20-year-old actress allegedly had her beak tweaked after filming 2006’s Accepted.

So when OK! caught up with Blake at Wednesday night’s Chanel Fine Jewelry’s Night of Diamonds held at The Plaza in NYC, we just asked her straight out about the stories.

“I don’t know,” Blake told OK! “It’s the way you address any rumor. People want to talk. They want to create negative things about you and your life, make up things. You can’t look at it. You can’t let them affect you.”

Teen Vogue – March 2008

Blake is on the cover of Teen Vogue magazine. Hopefully I’ll get my hand on the magazine very soon, so I can scan the pages. Here’s what I found on their webpage:

TOP SHOPPER: This chic actress has developed quite an eye for style. She took copious notes on some of her favorite pieces—such as a Richard Chai white-striped waistcoat, a black leather and elastic Burberry belt, and Manolo Blahnik for Alexander Wang white cutout pumps—so she could buy them in New York!

NOT TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL: Blake couldn’t wait to get home to spend QT with her Gossip Girl cast. “We do everything together. It’s like being freshmen in college,” she says. “I found my passion when I started acting, but I was sad that I had to miss out on school. So it’s nice to have a collegiate experience.”

BLAKE, ON SERENA: “Everyone thinks I’m like her. Hello, it’s called acting. My idea of a good time in high school was going to Fuddruckers for a show-choir fund-raiser, not hanging out at the Palace Hotel sipping martinis.”

BLAKE, ON FAME: “My life is no longer anonymous. A few days ago, we were filming, and by the time we came outside, six hundred people were waiting for us. I felt like a Spice Girl!”

BLAKE, ON RUMORS: “They make up stuff about me and Leighton [Meester] ‘feuding.’ There’s always going to be drama on set, but it’s just not true that we dislike each other. Or that we’re all dating each other!”

BLAKE, ON DATING CO-STAR PENN BADGLEY: “I try not to talk about my dating life. I want to, but once you start, it’s all downhill from there.”

Gossip Girl’s Blake admits Chanel addiction

I found this article over at FameTastic.

Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively has revealed she’s got a bit of a thing for Chanel products.

She told OK magazine recently: “I love Chanel so much. It’s everything. It’s the epitome of what a lady should be. It’s class.”

“I have the shoes, the jewelry, it’s really a problem. They say it’s an addiction. Some people take drugs; I do stuff with Chanel.”

“The bags are [the biggest] problem. I just got one right before I came here. I just got this big, beautiful, leather clutch that says Chanel on it. It’s black. It’s actually written out Chanel instead of the CC, which you don’t see very often. That was really exciting.”

#99 @ Top 99 Women

Blake Lively came #99 place on the Top 99 Women list..

Although Blake Lively’s been acting for years in films like Accepted and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, she really gained popularity in 2007 with her starring role on the teen TV series Gossip Girl. And since Blake Lively’s first major magazine cover appearance in November 2007’s Cosmo Girl, you haven’t been able to get this blonde bombshell out of your mind — hence her No. 99 debut on our list.

I’m so sorry for the lack of updates, I’m gonna be better I promise!

Blake Lively match isn’t just ‘Gossip’

There sure must be a lot of mistletoe on the set of “Gossip Girl.”

We hear that toothsome twosome Blake Lively and Penn Badgley — whose uptown/downtown relationship keeps the hit show sizzling — have quietly started dating in real life.

“No one is really supposed to know that,” laughs an insider. “I was told by a friend of the family.”

The new tryst has meant Lively disentangling herself from her former boyfriend, and Burbank High School classmate, actor/model Kelly Blatz.

The co-stars were spotted shopping together Dec. 17 at ABC Carpet and Home on Broadway, looking every bit the couple.

Reps for the actors did not comment.

Tries to Avoid the Hollywood ‘Nonsense’

People posted this article at their webpage.

Blake Lively says she’s not much like her Gossip Girl character, the socialite-in-training Serena van der Woodsen, except in one respect – she wants to be a good person amid all the drama of her situation.

“I think that I strive to do the right thing and not fall into the norm [like] so many young people in Hollywood who … get caught up in some of the nonsense,” the 20-year-old actress tells the Associated Press. “I really try to steer clear of that. So, you know, we’re like that in the same way.”

There may be a couple of other similarities, too. “We both giggle a lot. We look alike,” she adds.

Staying grounded is important now that Lively is beginning to get recognized on the streets – and not just by the stereotypical Gossip Girl demographic.

“One day these, like, thuggish guys were, like, coming out, rolling out of their Escalade, and they go – they’re like, ‘Man, that’s Gossip Girl!’ ” Lively says. “And they were, like, freaking out. It was so strange how many people would just get giddy over it. And it’s people that you would not expect at all.”

Some people even know her name, not just the character’s – “[everyone] from young girls, teenage girls, women in their 30s and 40s to, like, Guido-type guys, like frat boys.”

Still, though she’s quite becoming a star, Lively shares one particular passion with seemingly every other young person in America: She’s a “Guitar Hero” fanatic – so much so that the Gossip Girl writers had Serena play the video game on the show.

“The reason they wrote it in was because I’m such an amazing ‘Guitar Hero’ player,” Lively says. “I saw clips of it. It doesn’t really debut my skills so well, which I was very disappointed about.”

Staying grounded priority for lively Gossip Girl star

Another little intreview with oyr girl Blake, found it at

NEW YORK — Wide-eyed teens excitedly watch as Gossip Girl star Blake Lively films a scene with co-star Penn Badgley.

Take after take in New York’s Stuyvesant Park — a perfect setting with its stately gates and statues — the youthful onlookers linger on this cold day, providing some evidence that the low-rated CW series holds interest for its target demographic: BlackBerry-holding, DVR-using Gen-Yers.

Lively, who got her big break as a soccer-loving teen in 2005 ’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, plays Serena van der Woodsen on the glossy soap, based on the popular youngadult novels about rich Manhattan private-school kids whose scandals and trysts are dishy fodder for an anonymous blogger.

Serena captures the most attention: the Queen Bee hooked up with her best friend’s man — OMG ! — and now has a budding romance with brainy black-sheep-on-campus Dan Humphrey (Badgley ).

Loves her Urban Look

One more article about her fashion style. Credit:

Shooting “Gossip Girl” entirely in New York City has motivated the show’s star, Blake Lively, to step up her fashion game.

“New Yorkers have a sleek, subtle look,” says Lively in a fashion profile with the New York Times. “In L.A., people wear comfy, drawstring yoga clothes in bright colors.”

Lively portrays Serena van der Woodsen, the most beautiful girl in the Upper East Side and gem of the show’s fictional social scene. The upside to playing a character at the center of the world’s fashion capital has also meant that Lively enjoys wearing a wide variety of high-end fashion for the show — even if it means suffering for her art.

“It was March when I did the pilot, and there was snow on the ground,” says Lively.

“I was wearing two pairs of leggings, four sweaters and a big down coat. People here look sharp. You feel like an idiot in Uggs.”

Lively, who moved to Manhattan to shoot “Gossip Girl,” confesses that working on the show has influenced her current look.

“[Serena] does have a strong sense of style, and I like to think mine is a little bit like hers,” says Lively.

The 20-year-old also admits that she also orders clothing directly from the designers she wears on the show.

“Gossip Girl” airs Tuesdays on CTV. Check your local listings for details.

Want a “Ladylike” Sense of Style

I found this online article over at Fametastic, it’s about Blake’s great style.

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is loving living in New York to film the new hit show – because the extreme weather changes help her to justify lots of new clothes.

She told Lucky magazine recently: “I grew up in California, so winter is this entirely new, exciting thing for me – I’ve already justified buying seven coats!”

She added that working on the fashionable show has also turned her head – but she’s always had a certain older-than-her-years style in mind: “Growing up, I was constantly borrowing clothes from my older sisters, or I’d pick out something from Urban Outfitters and my mom would tailor it to my size — I don’t think I ever dressed like a kid.”

“Now that I’m on Gossip Girl, the wardrobe is so amazing and inspiring, it’s opened a whole new style gateway for me.”

“I’m having so much fun, but I’m trying to keep my head together too, stylewise. There are so many young women out there dressing like young girls; I want to be more ladylike and classic.”

“My style has been totally influenced by Audrey Hepburn and Kate Moss equally – they’re such fashion icons. But Sienna Miller’s young urban style is also totally what I’m going for.”
