> First, the good news: EW reports that this season of Gossip Girl will see Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) make out with a dude. Now, the bad: The dude is neither Chace Crawford nor Penn Badgley, and, like many circumstances on GG, this one is convoluted and semi-baked. Suffice to say, that while Chuck turns out bi in the Gossip Girl books, this won’t exactly be the case here.
> On the TLC tip, T. Boz and Chilli are booked to play their first concert in seven years this October -- the Justin Timberlake and Friends show on October 17 in Las Vegas, to benefit Shriners children's hospitals.
> We never thought we'd have the opportunity to say this but: Neil Patrick Harris is the new Paula Abdul! Harris is one of numerous celebrity guest judges (alongside Victoria Beckham) tapped to fill the Abdul shaped hole in our hearts when American Idol returns this fall.
