Gossip Girl premiered on the CW in 2007 and has been going strong since. The popular show is about privileged teen girls living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Gossip Girl starts every episode with a short speech by the Gossip Girl (Kristen Bell) who reports the latest on Manhattan’s ‘It’ girls. Gossip Girl’s recap starts with the line “Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite”. Gossip Girl (Kristina Bell) is never seen in any of the episodes. The show is based on the book series of the same name that followed the privileged lives of 5 wealthy teen girls from high school on into adulthood. The first season of the show had the girls in High School and later seasons showed the girls in college.
The series has been so popular that a clothing line was also created based on the show.
The designer, Anna Sui made a clothing line that was inspired by the Gossip Girl TV show in 2007 and in 2011 Romeo & Juliet Couture had partnered with Warner Bros to bring the official Gossip Girl’s line of clothes. The fashion line premiered on the same day as the first episode of season 5. Season 5 is currently on air and the season will end in May of 2012.
The Gossip Girl books are written by Cecily von Ziegesar. In 2006 and 2007 Gossip Girl came to the small screen thanks to its creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Since the show first appeared it has been a big hit with teens and has won multiple Teen Choice Awards.
