James Franco Gets His Pick of Columbia FreshmenA bunch of girls screamed with lust for James Franco at Columbia, and we don’t blame them. Also, Alec Baldwin screamed at a limo driver while leaving the U.S. Open, in today’s gossip roundup.
The Night We Met Vanessa From ‘Gossip Girl’ and Didn’t Kill HerEvening, Upper East Siders! So last night we went to Central Park North (a.k.a. 110th Street) for Esquire’s fête to honor Bill Cosby at the mag’s swank bachelor pad. Much as we love us some vintage Dr. Huxtable, last night was all about Gossip Girl, and the chance to talk to Jessica Szohr, who plays Vanessa. Yes, that’s right, Dan’s annoying friend who likes to enter his room through the window. Come on, we’re not in Dawson’s Creek here, Vanessa! First and foremost, we have to point out that Jessica Szohr is not as terrible as her character on the show. Last night, she was wearing a very nice simple black sweaterdress and tights and had really red lipstick on. Unless Vanessa gets a job hosting at the Waverly Inn, we know she’s not gonna be rocking a simple black dress anytime soon. Which brings us to our first question. What exactly is Vanessa’s deal? Why does she dress like an extra from a New Kids on the Block video? Thank God we had Jessica to break it down for us!
