Exclusive 'Gossip Girl' Video: Behind Serena and Blair's Big Catfight! Plus: New Couple Alert

If you’re one of those people who think my job is all about attending fancy parties and going on cool business trips, then this week’s episode of Ausiello TV is for you!

This past weekend I journeyed out to the Hamptons to attend Gossip Girl’s second-season premiere bash, and, I won’t lie, it was as much fun as it sounds. Maybe more. But that’s not to say I didn’t work. All you have to do is push play on the embedded video player below to see that I worked my tail off grilling the cast about the show’s highly anticipated return on Sept. 1. Among the burning questions I got answers to:

* What was really going through the minds of Blake Lively and Leighton Meester when they were beating each other to a pulp on set last week?

* Does Chace Crawford realize just how freakishly handsome he is?

* Is Gossip Girl going there with Rufus and (yikes!) Vanessa?

* Does GG‘s success prove once and for all that Penn Badgley’s show-killin’ days are behind him?

* Did I adequately adhere to the party’s strict “Hamptons chic” dress code?

Answers to all of those questions and more are below!

    Such good work Michael. I am so proud.

    It is funny that GG is considered successful. It’s ratings especially after the writing strike hiatus were horrible. Sure, it is a highly discussed and written about show. I guess from that standpoint, it is a success. Don’t get me wrong. I love the show and hope it does better.

    *lol* I love you so much, Michael! Finally someone who also saw the great chemistry between Vanessa and Rufus. But he had also a wonderful chemistry with Blair.
    And someone should finally cast his cute wife Naama;)
    Ausiello 4ever! ;)

    Can we get an argyle count for Michael – I’m just curious.

  • Nick

    Buzz, the DVR numbers, and it iTunes downloads make it quite the hit. Just like Billboard had to switch to Soundscan, the Nielsons are going to have to change with the times, too.
    Looking forward to the 1st! (My Tivo is not going to survive this season!)

    LOVE IT! This is my favorite show on tv, and you nailed those interviews! Way to be just as charming as the cast :)

  • Rachel

    Cute video. But no, honey, not hamptons chic. What you wore is more…northeastern college kid. Oh well, you tried. The books are nothing like the show, and so I can’t really get into the show because it just seems so far out and wrong to me.

    Nielsen numbers are just outdated statistics. They are not representative of the true viewing audience out there. Once Television decides to adopt a system that can count what is viewed from your cable box and or the new Digital Converter boxes for February 2008, you will see that the true numbers for shows are significantly higher.

    Correction February 2009. Not 2008.

    I love GG. I love you! This should hold me over a bit before Sept. 1st =)
    I love Leighton Meester, I can’t wait for that S/B “fight scene.”
    Yes, Chace Crawford is freakishly good looking, so why not post the whole vid of the interview with him so we can stare at him? =D
    Last thing, Rufus/Vanessa? Ewww…
    That’s even harder to contemplate than Justin/Rebecca on Brothers and Sisters!

  • Katie

    hahaha I LOVE YOU!
    …and Chace Crawford soooo realizes it ahaha

  • Um

    You looked hot in your argyle! And that is the most I have ever seen Ed Westwick speak in an interview. You must weave a magic spell over him or something.
    But, what’s this about the first two episodes, I caught? SPILL, PLEASE!

  • Um

    To people looking for an alternative to Nielsen, there is: http://www.optimedia-us.com/
    Gossip Girl is the 15th ranked show by them overall for the entire season and yes out of all the networks.
