British thespian Sophie Okonedo, winner of the Best Featured Actress in a play for her role in “A Raisin in The Sun,” led the long list of beauties at the 68th annual Tony Awards, held at Radio City, last night.
The ladies were jeweled and gowned for a step-and-repeat that spanned the length of the famed Radio City Music Hall as a throng of fans strained to get a look-see of their favorites.
Okonedo was joined by Leighton Meester, Judith Light, Fantasia, Pattie Labelle, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Thalia, Cherry Jones, Anika Noni Rose, Lucy Liu and a stunning Emmy Rossum. Read the rest of this entry »
Perusing the news, as we often do each morning over espresso, we stopped at news of the possible secret nuptials between Adam Brody – y’all recall him from The O.C. – and Gossip Girl alum Leighton Meester. Read the rest of this entry »
We happened on Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, coming and going to and from their trailers, after filming in the Wall Street area of NYC yesterday. And as the handlers rushed about, attempting to look busy, we simply stopped for a quick fag to capture the keep sake on our trusty IPhone.
We are always thinking of y’all!
Gossip Girl steadfastly enters its last season which presently looms on the horizon. And some folks are rejoicing. We remain neutral on the matter, although some on the show are less than our faves. Sure, we have enjoyed visiting the set and dealing with the personified starlet attitudes but it shall be no longer! We will simply wish them – not all – well and continued work.
We’d hoped to have a glimpse of Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley, cuz lets face it those two are way easy on the eyes, but it was not to be, and we couldn’t spend too much time waiting on the starlets to surface. So this here video is what it is and there you have it.
We did however have enough time to marvel at how the two leading ladies snubbed a handful of awaiting fans, some of which came all the way from Germany, and wouldn’t even sign autographs for them.
Our other observation was along the lines of how dowdy Meester looks. And did she gain weight?
But let that be a lesson… Be careful where you place your adoration, we say.
On an otherwise slow yet sunny day, we stopped by the Gossip Girl set during their Harlem stop to snap a few quick pics of Blake Lively dashing from her trailer to an awaiting van. The CW show, which looks to be coming to the end of its course, was filming at The North General Hospital for a better part of the day.
We also spotted Leighton “Sour Puss” Meester and Ed Westwick donning hoodies and hospital gowns. But given the extent of their attempts to keep not only covered but shielded by umbrellas, we have concluded that the show is trying some “hospital” drama in an upcoming episode.
Just don’t ask us what the “drama” is or what character gets hospitalized. But can’t they shoot that eyesore already? With all the crime that happens on the UES can’t they write it into the show & off Blair?
No matter. The hospital scenes come on the foot of the shows Vera Wang flagship store scenes. (See post below…)
We reckon they are working overtime to keep it “fresh” and exciting for dwindling viewers.
Lively has been all the buzz of late due to her developing romance with hottie Ryan Reynolds. The leggy blond has been keeping late hours with the stud and even visiting him while on the set of his new film R.I.P.D., presently filming in Boston.
Our hats are off to Lively for bagging that piece. We don’t know how she managed that but kudos to her.
We have fallen out of the loop on what’s been happening on Gossip Girl since our fave beauty Taylor Momsen left the show, but it appears someone is attempting a walk down the aisle. And wouldn’t you know it its Leighton Meester’s character. Aint that some shit? Sadly that does mirror life in that the heifer gets a man to propose mariage to her bow-legged sour puss looking ass! Not that we are bitter or nothing…
We stopped by the UES flagship store to catch Meester shooting scenes arriving to meet with the famed designer herself, assuredly for a wedding dress chit chat.
And we must say that the coat and bag in the scene were fab!
Sadly it was on the wrong person.
If there was bliss to the storyline it sure as hell wasn’t present during her time shooting outside. Girl gets bent at paps and fans alike being in her “eye line.”
You would think someone would stop babying her and tell her skank ass to “act” like there isn’t anyone there. But what can you do.

HTC – the cellphone makers perpetually attempting to compete against the Apple genius of IPhones – scheduled a culinary fete at the Highline Stages in NYC a few nights ago touted to be a “product launch event.” The guest lists screamed A-LIST with the likes of Charlize Theron, Leighton Meester, Hugh Dancy and rising star Elizabeth Olsen along with Gossip Girl hottie Penn Badgley and lesser red carpet staples Rashida Jones and Charlotte Ronson. Certainly a not to miss venue – on paper.
The talent arrival commenced with the lesser known Olsen sister clad in a creme colored mumu. Girl stepped onto the entrance way and promptly picked up stride and sprinted off the carpet leaving a press line wondering what was going on…? ‘Perhaps she had to pee,’ offered one pap. ‘She’ll be back’ quipped another.
No she wouldn’t be!
This very same action repeated with the arrival of Hugh Dancy who, hands in his pockets and head bowed down, made like he had just shoplifted one of the new phones being launched and was attempting an inconspicuous get-a-way cept for he was just entering.
And the crowd, noticing a theme, Booooed!
This did not go over well with the event organizer who raced over and proceeded to drop a total of three F-bombs on the photog line.
“Don’t you fucking booo my guest,” she yelled out. Two more followed but you get the general tone of what they were like…
The PR then made a huge effort to “Serve Up” the chefs participating in the theme along with D-list types like Max Winkler, Jodie & Danielle Snyder, Cary Levine and Paul Iacono. If you are asking yourselves ‘who?’ we share in your sentiment.
Cameras down, a slew of them did.
The evening climaxed with the arrival and photo-ops of Penn Badgley, Rashida Jones, Charlotte Ronson and Book of Mormons TONY winner Nikki M. James. Hot Chocolate Mathew Thomas was a personal favorite for us. Brother was ripe!
And then came word that Ms. Meester would be delayed an “maybe an hour,” and Theron was a “we don’t know.”
Well, need we point out that a few packed up and vacated promptly.
Final word on Theron and Meester is that they arrived few minutes shy of the witching hour and breezed through the entrance forcing the die-hard crew to machine gun they shortened step-and-repeat.
Event worth the time invested? Not in a hells chance less you were working all access. We do hear the likes of Jonah Hill and Jeffrey Wright also making an improptu appearance at the posh set-up.

Here is a foreign concept. A date night! Someone please forward me a proper definition of that – stat! But a red carpet I know and with that I headed down to Tina Fey and Steve Carell’s “Date Night” NY premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater last night. (Don’t you judge me!)
This might have been enough for some – a quiet event in a controlled environment, but throw in costars Leighton Meester, Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson – who rocked an off the shoulder blue cocktail number – and the hotness of Common and the night took a whole new level of excitement.
There was even an arrest just prior to the celebrity arrivals! Poor woman was paraded down the lenght of the streets as the gathered press and a horde of fans looked on. Slightly embarassing…
Now, truth be told, I don’t get Steve Carell’s sense of humor. Tina Fey’s I get. Her Sarah Palin impression is now legendary and still hysterical. So it will be interesting to see how this flick does – especially given that their shows respectively, are all the rave.

Penn Badgley and Leighton Meester shot “Gossip Girl” scenes in Brooklyn, NY the other day.
From what I could make of the scene, Meester’s maid goes into labor and they push her fat ass into a car and take off…
I for one do not get all that excited by the thought of Leighton. She hurts my eyes. But work is work – I reckon. And I must say that Penn is a hottie, so my grounds for complaint are vastly diminished.
Leighton Meester is all class she is! (That’s sarcarm for those of you who may not be processing properly.) The girl who came into the world via incarceration (you know her momma is a felon,) may have made something of herself (and given enough head) along the way – enough to land herself a slot on the WB phenom “Gossip Girl,” but lets face it – her acting range is no greater than Lassie.
Strike that last part, that bitch was athletic and could perform tricks on que.
Here is Ms. Thing on the GG set while filming on Manhattan’s UWS. Girl kept whinning before each take to the tune of “get out of my eye line!”
One could argue to an actress, ‘just fucking act like there is nothing there’ but then the diva role would go unutilized. I will say that had it been anyone else filming, my fave being Taylor Momsen – that girl can rock multiple cameras simultaneuously without missing a beat – I would’ve felt bad for them as it was mighty nippy out. As it was only this eyesore I felt nothing.
I especially felt nothing for her after hearing her tell a pap to go “get a life and get a real job!” Classy this one, I tell you!
We here at RTnM are patient if nothing else. We will wait to see the day when this series comes to an end – as all on TV eventually does – and see what this wanna-be diva does. Perhaps she will record again. (That was more sarcasm, in case y’all missed it or haven’t heard tracks from her bombed recording efforts.)
