10 Unanswered Questions From 'Gossip Girl' We Are Still Dying To Know

10 Unanswered Questions From 'Gossip Girl' We Are Still Dying To Know

Everyone has those questions they wonder after "Gossip Girl"... Well here they are.

The CW

If there is one show that is making its comeback in today's generation, it has to be "Gossip Girl." Who would have ever thought that a teen/young adult drama taking place in the Upper East Side of Manhattan would give people so much enjoyment? It definitely did. The show ran from 2006-2012 with many emotional ups and downs. Even though the show ended, there are still some unanswered questions we are all wondering about.

1. What happened to Dorota's family?

Throughout the show, a fan favorite was Dorota; Blair Waldorf's quirky maid. In season 3 Blair finds a pregnancy test and believes it's her newly married mother's. In all actuality, it's her maid Dorota's! Dorota has been in a secret relationship with the doorman Vanya. In the episode" Inglorious Basterds," Dorota tells Vanya she is pregnant and he proposes. They later get married and have two kids. In the final scene of the show, we see Dorota helping Blair and Chuck's son Henry pick up his toys. So what happened to Dorota and her family? P.S. One of Dorota's deliveries affected one of Blair and Chuck's break-ups and for that I still hold a little resentment.

2. Why did they forgive William Van Der Woodsen?

When Serena and Eric's father, William came back into the picture it was because their mom, Lily “had cancer." William was a doctor and was going to help cure her. Later on in the series, we find out IT WAS ALL FAKE. That is the ultimate betrayal. Then, in the season finale at the fast forward to 5 years later, we see Lily kiss William. The real question is… How could they forgive a guy who made them all believe their mother was dying of cancer?

3. Who was in Bart's Casket?

Chuck Bass's father, Bart Bass, was killed in season two in a car crash. The funeral brought tears to everyone's eyes, especially seeing how in pain his son was after his death. PLOT TWIST! In season 5, Blair and Chuck discover that Bart is still alive and find him hiding out at a brothel. Thankfully he dies at the end of episode 9 during the last season. The real question is…. WHO WAS BURIED IN BART'S CASKET AFTER HIS FIRST DEATH?

4. What happened to baby Milo?

At the end of season three, psychopath Georgina Sparks shows up in Dan's loft with a big pregnant belly and declares Dan is the father. In season four, we are introduced to Milo Humphrey. Later on, Georgina tells Dan that indeed he is not the father (Maury voice). She later moves in with her parents and takes Milo with her. Milo makes it into a few episodes in season five with Georgina's new husband, Phillip, who seems to be the only one taking care of him while Georgina is Dan's new manager running around NYC. In the finale episode we see Georgina rubbing Jack Bass's shoulders, so did she just leave her son with the desperate daddy and run away with an older man? We may never know.

5. Why did rich people get married in a townhouse?

The whole Gossip Girl group has money. Though at the end of the series, Serena and Dan end up getting married inside a small townhouse with no wedding decor or anything fancy. I get sometimes simpler is better but not when you are a millionaire.

6. What happened to Monkey?

Monkey, the dog Dan gave to Chuck in order to relieve Chuck's pain over losing Blair may have been the actual key to Chuck's heart. Yes, yes I know Blair and Chuck are soulmates (I am a big “chair" fan) but if you think about it, when Chuck was going through a really hard time, Monkey was always right by his side throughout the journey. In other words, Monkey changed Chuck and to not see him in the last episode may have broken our hearts.

7. Since when do waffles make you skinny?

If I have to see Rufus Humphrey make one more waffle in the morning I might die. The Van Der Woodsen/Humphrey family were always eating waffles. I mean all those carbs will take a toll on your body. Not for the Upper East Siders though, everyone in that family was skinny. Did we ever see a Humphrey or Van Der Woodsen workout after those waffles? No!

8. Did they get the part?

If you have seen "Frozen" you by now know the voice of Kristen Bell. When I first started watching "Gossip Girl," I was surprised to hear her voice as our narrator. In the season finale within the last 10 minutes, you see Kristen Bell and Rachel Gibson reading a "Gossip Girl" script. The real question here is did Kristen Bell and Rachel Gibson ever get their roles in "Gossip Girl: The Movie?"

9. Why was Gossip Girl an emotional wrecking ball?

It took me exactly 7 days to finish 6 seasons of "Gossip Girl." Yes I know, I am a very devoted and dedicated person. During and after the show, I realized how emotionally unstable the show made me. Do not get me started on the toll Chuck and Blair's relationship had on me too. The fact that I would stay up till 4 in the morning to finish a season isn't normal. I also noticed that I cried more watching Gossip Girl than I did when I found out I failed my ACT. I still don't think I have fully recovered from it.

10. How long until you start it again?

I finished "Gossip Girl" less than 2 weeks ago. As of now, I am still re-watching my favorite scenes, so it shouldn't be long until I click start and begin my journey all over again.

Until next time, Upper East Siders.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
