Bad news, Gossip Gals. All our hopes and dreams for a Chair Wedding Extravaganza have come crashing down around us. Fans have been speculating that Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) would tie the knot during Gossip Girl's sixth season ever since spoiler guru Michael Ausiello came out with the following blind item:
"A primetime soap that, although popular, came this close to getting the axe at season’s end — and just when a pair of its well-liked lovebirds were heading for a reunion, too. Now I hear that, when the show returns this fall, it’ll pick up right where it left off and pleasantly surprised fans by immediately marrying off the star-crossed couple in question."
Blair and Chuck seemed like Ausiello's couple (GG was on the bubble last season), but he has new information that changes everything. One of the characters is a main cast member, the other is just "main-ish!" What? Noooooo!
Fans are more than a little upset (read: furious) that Ausiello led us astray, and now it looks like his blind item is none other than Naomi and Max from 90210. We can't pretend we're not traumatized (Chaaaaaaiiiiir!), but we'll let the angry fans over on TVLinespeak for themselves:
"How are Max and Naomi star crossed lovers?" a commenter asked. "Max is a guest star. They also weren’t headed toward a reunion last season. They did reunite. I think it’s more than obvious Ausiello lied about the blind item to make it sound like Chuck and Blair. I just can’t believe he gave it away this easily. I thought we would have to wait a little longer."
Sigh, we can always hope for a Chuck and Blair reunion during the series finale, right gang?
