Gossip Girl recap: a cautionary tale of having a threesome in a twin bed

on a twin bed -- you can never fit all three people! In Dan's case that means that when he was in the Vanessa part of his threesome Olivia was watching instead of participating and she saw love, but not for her. As we all expected, when Dan and Vanessa have sex all their feelings for each other would come up again (literally and figuratively) and that's exactly what happened. After Olivia and Vanessa avoided each other after the threesome for a week, they tried to have the awkward conversation trying to convince themselves and each other that it wasn't awkward that they had sex with the same guy that they both have/were dating and that they weren't trying to avoid each other (even though they live in the same room and hadn't seen each other all week.) Because after you have a threesome with your roommate nothing is ever supposed to be awkward, right? Fail. But by the end of the impromptu cabaret show and Lady Gaga performance Olivia and Dan were over and Vanessa had found a new man.


Guess who else found a new man? None other than Serena! There has been some serious sexual tension recently between them, and Serena decided the best person to go to would be Nate (who she is currently not speaking to, and happens to also be Tripp's cousin). Please tell me what would possess anyone to go to their married boss's cousin and tell them you want to fuck their cousin, how incredibly awkward. And of course Nate's natural reaction is to take Serena on a bar crawl because getting trashed always helps a horny teenager get her mind off sex. Just as Nate and Serena were drunk enough to almost get it on, Tripp (pictured above) walks in and tells Serena his wife set up the fake drowning scandal without telling him. He says he doesn't want to be alone ... so they have sex. Good job Serena, you have now officially had sex with your best friend's boyfriend and his married cousin, good way to keep it in the sketchy family!


Speaking of sketchy, there is no one more sketchy than Chuck Bass, but recently I must admit Chuck Bass has been the voice of reason. After Lily accidentally set up Jenny with an internationally drug-dealing ambassador, Chuck finds out who he really is and takes Jenny home from the unbelievably sketchy and totally obvious drug deal in a club. But even after Chuck tries to save her from a sketchy and dangerous path, she goes down it anyway setting up another date with her new drug-dealing lover.


Maybe drug-dealing lovers are who Lady Gaga was singing about in her random cameo [image-1]appearance singing "Bad Romance," but either way the performance was certainly very interesting. After Blair decided she needed to be in with the Tish crowd she decided the best way to get their attention would be to get Lady Gaga to perform at the Tish Cabaret Theatre, which Dan, Olivia, and Vanessa also all performed in doing a fucked up rendition of Snow White.


Even after awkwardness ensues, Gossip Girl never rests and I can't wait to see what we have in store for this year's Thanksgiving ... pregnancy scare anyone??? Until next week,


You know you love me,

This week was the one of seriously awkward conversations ... I guess that's what happens when you have threesome, or if you're trying to have sex with your ex-hook up's married cousin, or when your step brotherish comes to a club to take you home from an ecstasy deal with an ambassador.

Although we were all promised a hot and heavy threesome last week not much was delivered, this week we got a little more of a view of the action, through flashbacks of a very cocky (pun intended) Dan, and we learned one very important lesson: don't ever have a threesome
