Attention, Upper East Siders! Your world could've looked very different if The CW got its way when casting for its future classic, Gossip Girl. According to the casting director responsible for bringing you your favorite Arrow, Flash, 90210 and Gossip Girl stars, the network initially wanted two more well-known names than the now-iconic Blake Lively and Leighton Meester as Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf. "I think the network initially pitched us Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis for Blair and Serena," The CW's go-to casting director Michael Rappaport told Buzzfeed of his hunt for the perfect rich girl heroines. "I love Rumer. She's grown into quite an amazing actress and person, but »
It's time to play another game of "What could have been?" on the casting couch. David Rapaport, the casting director for the CW, is the one who has been shepherding all of those Neutrogena-rich faces to your television for years, and he spoke with BuzzFeed about some of your favorite shows — including Gossip Girl, Arrow, and The Flash. For instance, casting the greatest show of our time came during the height of O.C. mania, and co-creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage told Rapaport that they were looking for "the next Mischa Barton and Adam Brody." Originally the network pitched Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis for Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen, but Rapaport was firm on Blake Lively. “Blake Lively was literally the only person I could think of for Serena," said Rapaport, breathlessly (we imagine). The network's first note was that Lively looked "a sunny California girl »

Effortless style aside, it isn't always easy being Gwyneth Paltrow. She would probably even be the first to agree. And it turns out that trying to achieve what Gwyneth has achieved is pretty difficult too—if not, as we continue to suspect, impossible. Blake Lively revealed this morning via Vogue that she is shuttering her lifestyle website Preserve after about 14 months, admitting that it never caught up to its "original mission," to make a difference in people's lives. And we give her self-awareness props to know that said difference wasn't always going to be "meaningful" and would, in fact, sometimes be "superficial." But while the going must have been rather rough »

Bad news for Blake Lively. Only a year after launching Preserve, the actress announced on Wednesday that she's shutting down her lifestyle website and wishes she "would have waited" longer before taking her brand public. "We have an incredible team of people who do beautiful work, but we launched the site before it was ready, and it never caught up to its original mission," she revealed to Vogue. "It’s not making a difference in people’s lives, whether superficially or in a meaningful way." “And that’s the whole reason I started this company, not just to fluff myself, like, 'I’m a celebrity! People will care what I have to say!' It was so never meant to be that, and that kind of became the crutch because it was already up and already running, and it’s hard to build a brand when you’re running full »

After just hitting the one-year mark in operation, Blake Lively is pulling the plug on Preserve. The actress-turned-lifestyle guru will close the virtual doors of Preserve come Oct. 9, explaining to Vogue—the mag that announced she would launch the site in the first place with a cover story in July of 2014—that the site never lived up to its mission statement, and that she's proud of the decision to know when to walk away. "It's very exciting and it's also incredibly scary," Lively told Vogue of shutting down Preserve. "I never thought I would have the bravery to actually do that, to take the site dark and to say, 'You know what? I haven't created something that is as true »
A little over a year after Blake Lively launched her lifestyle website, Preserve, the actress has decided to shut it down. Blake recently spoke to Vogue about the tough decision, saying, "We have an incredible team of people who do beautiful work, but we launched the site before it was ready, and it never caught up to its original mission: it's not making a difference in people's lives, whether superficially or in a meaningful way. And that's the whole reason I started this company, not just to fluff myself, like, 'I'm a celebrity! People will care what I have to say!' It was so never meant to be that, and that kind of became the crutch because it was already up and already running, and it's hard to build a brand when you're running full steam ahead - how do you catch up?" Blake went on to explain »

Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf are officially parents!
Us Weekly reports that Adam Brody and Leighton Meester have welcomed their first child, though they have not publicly acknowledged the birth, which reportedly took place sometime within the past few weeks. The couple, who have kept a low profile since marrying in a secret ceremony in February 2014, never publicly addressed Meester's pregnancy, and did not reveal their new child's gender or name.
This is the first child for both Brody and Meester, though their television peers have been busy with the babymaking business recently, too. Brody's "The O.C." costar (and ex-girlfriend) Rachel Bilson welcomed a baby girl, Briar Rose, with Hayden Christensen back in November 2014, while Meester's "Gossip Girl" castmate Blake Lively gave birth to daughter James with Ryan Reynolds in January. We'd love to see that playgroup get together some day.
And there may be many more siblings on the »
