The great thing about Gossip Girl is how completely deranged all the mothers are.
You got this one who left her family to be a painter in Hudson. (They’re the “less wealthy, quirky” family living in a Dumbo loft.) Then there’s one who’s never around, being more concerned about the future of her career than her child (named Blair Waldorf). And don’t forget the grandmother (this has been going on for generations) who lied to her daughter about having lung cancer as a means to guilt her granddaughter into coming out at a debutante ball.
As for fathers, they’re all corrupt money-makers. Except for the gay one who lives in Paris.
That said, please visit my revamped website. Feedback always appreciated.
