Scoop: 'Gossip Girl' pulls trigger on Tim Gunn cameo

tim-gunn-gossip-girlImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CW; Barbara Nitke/BravoLet’s see if Gossip Girl can make this work: Tim Gunn is guest-starring on the CW soap this fall!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the ubiquitous Project Runway mentor will play himself in an episode set to air in late October.

No further details about his appearance were available, which leaves me no other choice than to speculate…

My first thought is perhaps Gunn’s arrival is tied to Gossip‘s upcoming Fashion’s Night Out-centric plot, but I’m told that story line will conclude in the Sept. 27 episode.

My second thought is maybe wannabe Vera Wang Jenny Humphrey returns home to audition for the next cycle of Runway. Don’t laugh. Stranger things have happened.

    “Pulls Trigger” usually means it’s not going to happen.

    • Bárbara Brasileiro Leal

      i think “pull the plug” is more like “not going to happen”. Pull the trigger is just start an action.

      • Jess

        Pulls the trigger means let it rip…the opposite of not going to happen.

    • Josie

      It is kind of a confusing turn of phrase

      Interval swim w/tempo bike ride this morning. Swim- 6x150m on 3:30- 3:02,3:03,3:04,2:58,2:58,2:58. Tempo bike ride druing the spin class after; yeah I did a spin class. 52 minutes/8 minute cool-down. Strength & conditioning this afternoon. Subbed Kip Pull-Ups and 20 45lb. SDHP- 1:25,1:25,1:23,1:27,1:27 minutes. S&C was brutal. Brick workout this morning was good too.

  • AngieLam18

    Definitely has something to do with Jenny and/or Eleanor. Fingers crossed we don’t have to sit through another ep of Agnes though…

  • Victor

    Nope, that would be “Pull the Plug”.

    I was thinking of formulating a theory, but since Gossip Girl is so irrelevant to me I won’t bother. :/

  • Jess

    This! Is the only good thing ive heard about Season 4 of GG. Tim’s episode is looking to be the only episode I tune into!

    • laurnepatron

      what’s the point of watching at all? you won’t know what’s going on.

      • stella

        This is GG we’re talking about, not Lost. I missed a season and a half and when I finally tuned in, it was exactly where I had left off.

      • laurnepatron

        Lost is dumb. GG is where it’s at.

  • Tinsley

    He comes in to make over Blair and Serena to make them look like the Olsen Twins!

  • Summer

    SO many people on this show could benefit from his advice, it would be hard to keep him to one ep (if that is what he is there for)…

    I may only tune in to GG for Tim’s ep, that is unless they finally bring on Kristen Bell as GG with a real role on the show. They could dump some baggage (Vanessa, Jenny) and free up some $!

  • Johnification

    Y’know, Tim Gunn is so hot, I’d watch WWE Raw if he guest starred!

  • Darth Clavie

    I don’t care how he’s in the show as long as it’s Tim Gunn I’ll watch. He’s my style hero

  • Reena

    Does this mean I am going to have to break out my dictionary like I do for Project Runway?

  • ESP-N!

    He’s going to play Serena’s professor at Parsons! Too easy. She did nothing last year, college is her only option. It’s also a way for her to patch things up with Lil J. They’re going into business together by the end of the season. Just watch.

    • WatchesEverything

      What part of “the ubiquitous Project Runway mentor will play himself” needs explaining?

      • ESP-N!

        He was on the faculty of Parsons The New School for Design from 1982 to 2007 and was chair of fashion design at the school from August 2000 to March 2007, after which he joined Liz Claiborne as its chief creative officer.

      • ESP-N!

        Apparently you need the explanation. XoXo.

  • ESP-N!

    On a side note. Georgina stole Dan’s DNA from a used condom, froze the yolk, and had it planted in her ovaries while she was in the swamps of Florida. That baby doesn’t belong to him… necessarily.

    • ESP-N!

      I have the televistic ability to know what will happen next on my favorite television shows. It’s a fifth sense I like to call ESPN. It’s all in the breast (singular… breast cancer). I have a very strong lump about this one though… that baby was stolen from a discarded condom.

  • Aye, Tortuga!

    maybe, along with Barney Stinson, Tim Gunn is Chuck’s tailor :o)

  • Wembe

    Not everyone can pul a chuck.his dresing is out of ths world

  • Jess

    jenny isn’t on the show this year because she is touring and focusing on her music….i bet it has to do with Blair’s mum

    • rbk

      OH YES SHE IS… she’s comin bk in episode 6 and after that for good in the second half of the season.
