Question: You've seen the first two Gossip Girl episodes?! Spill! -- Melissa
Ausiello: As I mentioned in my Gossip Girl premiere wrap party video, I got the distinct impression that the show is laying the groundwork for a possible Rufus-Vanessa pairing. The signs are subtle, but they're there. I'm curious to see what you guys think. Elsewhere, there's a scene between Leighton Meester and guest cougar Madchen Amick in the second episode that was so good I nearly wept. No surprise that exec producer Stephanie Savage -- who's second only to Patrick Mulcahey (Santa Barbara) when it comes to writing bitchtastic dialogue -- penned the outing. Oh, and many words have been used to describe Chace Crawford's Nate -- hot, sexy, tasty, yummy, etc. Well, by the end of the second ep, you'll be able to add male prostitute to that list.
