Gossip Girl has done so well that it’s getting a spinoff! The new show will be based off of the early life of Lily van der Woodsen (Serena’s mom on GG). It will take place in the 80’s during her teenage years.
"The spinoff will center on young Lily Rhodes (her maiden name) who,
after a falling out with her parents, is forced to move in with her
sister, the black sheep of the Rhodes family. Overnight, Lily has to
transition from a life of luxury and schooling at a wealthy Montecito
boarding school to living deep in the San Fernando Valley she once made fun of and going to public school. Caught between two worlds, Lily dives into the fast-paced Sunset Strip and the Hollywood lifestyle of the ’80s, journeying over the hill to a world of wealth and excess that used to be her own."
So basically a Gossip Girl ends up on the wrong side of the tracks. Hmmm…I’m wondering if this will actually work. Especially since most people seem to watch the original show FOR the fabulous clothes. If Lily isn’t living a life of luxury, what kind of 80’s fashion eye candy will we have then?
