Recently on Gossip Girl, Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) became the fairy god cousin to her long lost relative, Charlie (Kaylee DeFer.) Needless to say, no good deed goes unpunished because this seemingly sweet girl is completely psycho. Charlie doesn’t just want to be like Serena because let’s face it we all do and that’s completely normal, she wants to actually be Serena. Or so we thought.
Two episodes ago, the crazy, Charlie finally succeeds in seducing Dan in Serena’s gold cotillion dress. But, her insane fantasy is short lived when Dan freaks out after she asks him to call her Serena. In tonight’s season finale, Charlie drunkenly tried to jump out of an open window. After that, she seemed to calm down a bit. Or was she faking it? It turns out the whole thing was a complete lie and their was a sketchy handoff in Miami. It looks like this whole estranged relatives act may just be a plot to extort money from the great van der Woodsen clan of Manhattan. I guess we will have to wait until next season to see what this screwy blonde is really up to.
Even of you have not yet found socialite status, you have probably had your share of psycho friends and acquaintances that could have come straight out of the movies. However, if you plan on being on the front page of every society page, get ready for three times the crazy. Your devotees copying your every move and the paparazzi’s interest in your casual brunch can be fun at first, but living in a fishbowl where you often encounter people looking to take advantage of you is enough to make anyone check into rehab for a month or two. Why do you think Canyon Ranch is so popular among with world’s elite? However, being a socialite is all worth it to me. It’s just good to know what you are really getting into.
