Gossip Girl Rewind! S05/EP23 – “The Fugitives”

Gossip raannt here!  The best source for a look into the life of Gossip Girl’s Manhattan Elite!  This weeks episode was pretty powerful, kind of funny, and at certain parts…extremely annoying!… Over all…a Gossip Girl Grade G (OMG that was just 4 Gs in a row) for Great but not so Great.

 

            Who’s starting to get a little over this super needy Chuck?  We are! He’s supposed to be sexy, confident, sexual, strong… not this daddies little boy (and we don’t mean that in the sexual way) that keeps wanting attention and affection.  Although the story line has been touching and he is finally with his dad, it also seems a bit too “Days of Our Lives”  That soap is over, for a reason; let’s not get any ideas.  Anyways, we’re glad Chuck found his dad and they’re able to live happily ever after..we think, but now that the past is all set and done let’s bring Chuck back to his womanizing, manipulating, over -rich and powerful, egotistical ways: that’s why he’s sexy.

            After last week’s L-O-V-E confession from Dan we’re left wondering if B feels the same…or is she just not ready to say it.  This week Dan totally tries to take B and corner her in Rome.  He never effing learns does he?! Give the girl some time and space.  Don’t just suffocate her with your lonely boy neediness (Chuck is doing all of that for everyone else!) Stick to your love making and fiction writing, we like that. And Dan… please get rid of that god awful hair piece! It’s starting to get out of control!

 

Ok, so what’s next? Oohhh yes! S finally told B that for the last couple of months she was posting as GG.  B loved it but felt left out so S said she would help her with whateves, so S pretended to be B for an interview with Dan that went smoothly… did you catch that?  Basically Serena feels bad that she’s been MIA for the last couple of months, and tries to get in the good side with her friends.  After learning about Chuck’s dad she is willing to get back into the game and help her friend with whatever she can. Oh and we totally agree with Blair, that “holy” sweater and cute skirt outfit is sexual!! Girls, take note!

Lola and Ivy are once again working together in this episode and we love it!  we adore Ivy – she’s so hot! Ok, so they’re working together and this time they’re on the GG elite side.  While Chuck is trying to find who’s threatineng his dad, they all set up a trap and Lola and Ivy play a big part in it.  Leaving us an open ended, cliff-hanger that is questionable, and totally uncomfortable… What could possible happen next week?!!!!!!!

The season finale is going to be IN-to-the-TENSE. Till next week friends!!

xo xo,

your boys!

Shakira…We’re “Addicted to You”!

Having grown up listening to Shakira it comes as no surprise that we are some of her most loyal fans! We’ve loved her for so long and have been intrigued watching her transition to some Americanized music while still remaining true to her Latino roots.  In her newest single and video, Addicted To You, Shakira once again proves why she’s at the top of her game! For this video, she’s reinvented her look and shown us an entirely new, blonder side! Check it out and see what you think.  We think it’s amazing!

Cole Mohr…THE Role Model

What is it with this kid with the April, May, June tattoo???  We are obsessed with model Cole Mohr…and not just because he is insanely good looking! We’re not sure if its his boyish charm or his constant edginess which seems to be the portrayal of some Larry Clark film character.  He is dark and brooding one moment and intoxicatingly handsome and classic the next.  We’ve watched him for awhile and were intrigued when we saw him on an episode of Kell on Earth because he seemed much more down to Earth and friendly than we would have imagined, making us adore him even more! Nonetheless, this kid is here to stay…probably even long enough for us to see him make it to July, August…and even the September Issue!

Out of Our Closet Today 5-4-12 – Juvenile Peace

When picking out what we’re going to wear for the day…comfort usually rules.  Our closet is so eclectic that we like to pull opposites together, which indicates our inner personality dictating our individual style.  Alex definitely puts more thought in his outfits, but is always true to himself, whether what he is wearing is trendy or not.  Neither one of us is ruled by magazine articles or runway shows, although we’re obsessed with both, but we find our style happiness more in what makes us feel attractive.

Since we’re constantly asked what we’re wearing or where we shop, we thought it would be fun to begin highlighting one of our outfits daily.  You will probably find that Alex tends to lean more towards colored pants and tighter, button down colored shirts and wingtips, while Peter sways toward the vintage, with 70’s Western shirts and old concert tees.  We both have a love for accessories; jewelry and watches, shoes and underwear…and luckily, we share all of it!

Out of Our Closet Today 5-4-12:

Black Sport Coat: H & M

Black Graphic Tee: We made these at a local t-shirt shop for awareness of disaster in Japan

True Religion Jeans: Saks Fifth Avenue

PEACE Bracelet(also comes in LOVE) Gift shop at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas

Cartier Santos Galbee Men’s Watch: Cartier

Black Converse Low-Top Slides(We’re addicted and have them in several colors): Converse or Nordstrom

Gossip Girl Rewind S05/Ep22 “Raiders of the Lost Art”

Gossip Girl raannt here!  Your one and only source of the scandalous life of… who are we kidding!!! No one can do it like the original GG…and tonight’s episode proved it.  Let’s recap.

Our first matter of business… Dan, Come!!!! On!!!! Really??  Jealous of Chuck? Sure he and Blair have some intense history but let’s face it, she chose you, over him… over the glam, power, money… THE UPPER EAST SIDE… She chose you.  Trust… you have nothing to worry about.  And while we’re at it, next time you get an offer like that – The Writers Academy in Rome – don’t pass it up. (Didn’t you learn anything from Lauren Conrad on The Hills???)  You passed up way too many opportunities while trying to date Serena and here you go again making the same mistakes.  Learn something! Although we might be a little worried too after telling her “I love you” and just getting nothing in return. Ridic!

NEXT…

The real Blair is back… unlike last week.  The REAL Blair is back!  And she is up to what she does best; scheming and taking someone down in defense of her friends and love ones, of course while using Dorota in the best possible way.  I swear if we had nannies like that while growing up we wouldn’t be typing this – she would be. (Unfortunately, we have no nanny…just three pups who are chewing away at our brand new boat shoes!)  Ok…back to business.  Blair steps into Diana’s shoes – well actually,  into her overly priced slutty dress – to help Nate and Chuck and Lola (Why is she still around?) to get to the bottom of finding out the true identity of Chuck’s father…

Then we have dear Serena, who pretty much got sucka-punched-schemed (or whatever you want to call it) by everyone tonight.  First she tries to help Diana  so that she could get to the real GG.   and then she tries to help her friends so that she could get to real GG and then she gets totally thrown under the bus by all… All while at a super chic party (a sex party, but still chic! Mental Note: someone needs to do this here! Our social circle is beginning to give us a headache in comparison!)

The real secret tonight was behind Door #1, Door #2 or Door #3???  Who is Chuck’s real father? Actually…who are Chuck’s real parents?  Is he really an alien from another planet? Is he the lost child of Marilyn Monroe?  Who really knows any more.  This whole mother/father thing is really getting out of control.  Maybe in the next last 2 episodes we’ll get some answers. Until then, post below in the comments what you think would make the best story idea for Chuck’s past! We’ll pick our favorite and discuss it!

Until Then,
XOXO

The Winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 Is…

All season, Sharon needles identified herself as the queen who couldn’t win a pageant.  Well darling, the time has come to change that title.  Good thing you can now refer to yourself as RuPaul’s Next Drag Superstar! Yes maam…tonight at the reunion show for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4, spookerstar Sharon Needles, was crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar! We were literally pounding our fists and feet, ecstatic that our queen took home the crown!

But the night was not left without a few other winners.  All three girls in the top three represented gorgeously and we realized, while watching as they explained what the title would mean to them, that any one of them would represent the title beautifully. And how cool was it that all of their moms were their to support! We’ve come a long way baby!

Chad Michaels again displayed unbelievable class and style, even confronting Phi Phi about her behaviors, in a mentoring stance.  The reality about Chad Michaels is simple; she is in an entirely different class, one not defined by titles or prestige.  We imagine Chad having his own show in Vegas, representing the gay community with style and possibly even writing his own book.  If Chad could sing…he might be the next RuPaul…but instead, we think he is defining his role as he goes.

Everyone can hate Phi Phi all they want, but she is Phierce! While she may seem a little young and too “goal focused”, she’s not stupid enough to realize the power of $100,000 or the title as American’s Next Drag Superstar.  Should she be hated because she came to win? Maybe some of her behaviors were backhanded but she owned it in the end.  And let’s be honest…which one of the girls would have donated the money if they had won?  No…Phi Phi‘s not much different than some of the other girls, if not smarter.  And although she could work on being kinder, she’s had a tough life.  She’s a survivor! And in case you didn’t mention what she said when asked about her father, we’ll recap it for you.  It was more powerful than any anti-hate message we’ve heard in a long time! “He does watch it and he doesn’t like it.  But I love me!” Powerful shit! And she looked gorgeous in the blonde, Marilyn wig! Could she be the Jennifer Hudson of RuPaul’s Drag Race??? Only time will tell!

Sharon NeedlesOMG!!!! We really, really thought RuPaul was going to give it to Chad.  Imagine how unbelievably excited we were when Sharon‘s name was announced.  She had her own powerful moment too when she shared that she never thought she would affect so many people, reaching out to the “gay or weird” kids, or anyone who feels different.  And damn! A Ouija board head piece! Sickening! A perfect accessory to go along with her farewell “Happy Halloween everybody!” We love her so! Its kind of hard to deny…she’s the Lady Gaga of drag! Well…kind of!

The rest of the show was just as incredible.  RuPaul paid homage to Latrice, who incidentally won the title of Miss Congeniality.  Was anyone surprised? Latrice is like the Humanitarian Ambassador of Drag.  We adore her…not just because of her elegance, but because of her message.  In fact, she dropped so many of these profound messages, we’re wondering if she’s trying to make it on the list of famous quotes.  “It’s alright to fall down.  Get up.  Look Sickening…and make them eat it!”  She went on to pull out a note she received from the mother of a 10 year old girl.  The message was so inspiring, displaying that drag queens are changing the world, that it emphasized the strength of Latrice’s message: “Doing Me Works”.

And of course there was Willam.  We don’t care what anyone says…we love Willam.  He’s real, genuine, honest, hard-working, extremely talented(just check out his YouTube videos) and gorgeous.  She has sick style too! We were a little bored that he got kicked off for having his husband come to his hotel room for “conjugal visits“.  It almost makes you wonder if there wasn’t a reason producers were looking for a reason to get Willam off the show.  RuPaul was so supportive of Willam‘s future that it made us wonder.  And for once…Willam refused to be flippant and show a gentler side.  Yep…if not Sharon, Willam should have won the show! She even coined the phrase Rupologize, to which RuPaul responded “Consider that word stolen!“.  Willam is a genius!

The rest of the show was just as good! Jiggly looked gorgeous, but it made us sad when she cried while confronting Phi Phi, “I smell like a sucka!“.  Honey…you’ve smelled like a sucka all season…and not just because of Phi Phi! Which, by the way, made it even funnier when she kept slurping on that sucker! Did you guys miss that irony? Could someone please get the girl a Sugar Factory Couture Pop ASAP!

We can’t wait for the much anticipated RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5!

Glee Supreme Performance Award…Blaine!

Seriously…could Blaine…or Darren Criss for that matter, be any more perfect? He’s gorgeous, sweet, incredibly talented and supports gays and lesbians, loving everyone.  Uhhh…could we reserve you for the role of husband for our best girlfriend.  And Blaine…if he wasn’t already perfect, by making Kurt “supposedly” text/cheat on him, we just fell in love even more with his vulnerable heart…and those adorable dimples.

Above all else…the boy can sing! We’ve always loved Whitney Houston’s It’s Not Right But Its Ok and now we love it even more! Blaine’s performance was absolutely incredible and probably the most “music video” quality performance we’ve seen in a few episodes.  That being said, it’s easy to see why this week’s Glee Supreme Performance Award goes to Blaine! If you haven’t seen it, we put it below to let you see what all the hypes about!
