10 scenes from Gossip Girl that make you go "wtf" or "awe."

10 Scenes From 'Gossip Girl' That'll Make You Say 'WTF' Or 'Awe'

Some of these are scandalous.


Hey Upper East Siders. Aurora Harris here, and I have some news for you. While you all may swoon over Nate Archibald and gloat about being besties with Serena Van Der Woodsen, there's a couple secrets I can't bear to keep to myself. I've gotten too many tips asking to expose the most scandalous and heart throbbing scenes... Since you all asked for it, I guess I have no other choice.

With a love of Gossip Girl, it's not a secret that there are times where this show will make you angry, sad, or extremely happy after all the scandal and love drama. These are some scenes that made me think "Wtf" and times where I went "awe" when our favorite Upper East Siders experienced extreme scandal and true romance.

1. Blair exposing Serena for hooking up with her boyfriend

Poor B, Isn't it a wonder why your bestie went off to boarding school without telling you? Our Upper East Side "it" girl couldn't skip town without taking something that belonged to you. My sources tell me there was a B and S showdown at the Waldorf penthouse, maybe next time an apology will be better served with some truth. Sorry S... but wtf?

2. The Dan and Serena first kiss

Spotted trotting down the streets of the Upper East Side, we find lonely boy and our golden girl. As Serena and Dan lock lips we question if lonely boy is really that lonely anymore. Let's just hope Brooklyn can compromise with fortune. I guess for S's sake we can awe, but in reality, everyone else is just thinking "wtf."

3. Chuck and Blair's limo ride

Wtf B, thought you said you were a virgin queen? My sources tell me you did the dirty deed with the big bad C in no other than a limo itself. If it wasn't already known I'd say that's the Bass trademark. We all know how much he loves limos.

4. Chuck helping Blair win prom queen

Awe B, we always knew you were a prom queen. Looks like your prince might not be Nate Archibald after all. Isn't it a wonder why Chuck Bass made sure you had the prom you always dreamed of? According to S, he even said those 3 words you've been waiting to hear.

5. Chuck's apology to Blair. 

Chuck Bass reveals his true sorrows to Blair after a showdown with Luis. I have some in-tell as Bass enters the Waldorf's. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you I loved you, when I knew I did. But most of all. I'm sorry that I gave up on us, and you never did." We're all saying awe. Looks like Chuck has a heart after all.

6. Serena being drugged by Juliet.

Wtf S, we all knew you had a problem, but this one doesn't seem to be yours. Juliet Sharp has always been a liar with a grudge over our "it" girl. Just remember, Karma's a bitch Juliet.

7. Bart Bass isn't dead? 

As this doesn't shock many we hear Diana Payne has been keeping a secret all along... Bart Bass of course. Poor Chuck, all that trauma for nothing? Sources say your beloved daddy has been in danger. Do I smell a potential scheme?

8. Serena and Dan, again? 

It appears lonely boy and our golden girl are giving their love one last attempt. We say awe as S finally gets to let her love for Dan re-kindle. Will our beloved lovers survive even after Dan's Serena chapter? I'll never tell.

9. Chuck and Blair are married?


We all knew Chuck and Blair would end up together. Although it happened under scarce circumstances, we all have to awe at the fact that their love ever lasted all the pain they both went through. Especially because it was meant to be.

10. Finding out who's Gossip Girl. 

I always thought it was Dorota as it would make the most sense being Blair Waldorf's housekeeper. Who knew the whole time Dan Humphrey had more power than anyone in the Upper East Side. Congrats to you Humphrey, who would've thought?

As I love a scheme just as much as the next, I must retire from following around Manhattan's elite. You may have left some emotion behind in your impeccable scenes and I for one have enjoyed being apart of your journey. You may have escaped me with age and maturity but there will always be a Gossip Girl. Who am I now? Well, I'm just a writer, but you all get the point. XoXo A.

36 Rules Of Life From 'NCIS's' Leroy Jethro Gibbs

Sometimes we all need a smack on the back of the head.

I have been watching "NCIS" since the show began back in 2003, and season 15 will be airing this September. It is one of the longest running series and for a good reason, even though a lot of your favorite characters die off in the show they somehow still keep it alive. Anyone who has watched an episode or more knows about the infamous Gibbs's rules. Here's the list that we can gather from the many episodes:

Rule 1: "Never let suspects stay together." - revealed in the Season 1 premiere episode, Yankee White (episode).

Rule 2: "Never screw over your partner." - revealed in the Season 4 episode, Blowback (episode). McGee also stated this rule to Ned Dorneget in Need to Know (episode). McGee also mentioned to Abigail Borin in Ships in the Night (episode) that rule number one has been taken twice, showing that he knows that there are two number one rules.

Rule 3: "Always wear gloves at a crime scene." - revealed in "Yankee White."

Rule 4: "Don't believe what you're told. Double check." - again revealed in "Yankee White."

Rule 5: "Never be unreachable." - revealed in the Season 3 episode, Deception (episode) although Gibbs has been known to be intentionally unreachable. The rule was shown in Rule Fifty-One (episode) in the background when Gibbs opens the box.

Rule 6: "The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best." - revealed in the Season 4 episode, Blowback (episode)

Rule 7: "You don't waste good." - revealed in the Season 8 episode, Baltimore (episode).

Rule 8: "Never say you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness." - This rule has been mentioned throughout the series, but it wasn't given a specific number until Flesh and Blood (episode). The rule is also a direct reference to John Wayne's catch phrase in "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" (John Ford, Director). Wayne said: "Never apologize, mister, it's a sign of weakness." to subordinates in a military situation. DiNozzo notes the connection in Hiatus Part 1 (episode). Mark Harmon's career has paralleled John Wayne's. They both were quarterback of their southern California college football team, both went into acting. (Harmon's father, Tom Harmon, was a Heisman Trophy-winner and actor & announcer as well.) Note: This is continuously told to Tony, Ziva and Tim through a smack to the back of their heads.

Rule 9: "Always be specific when you lie." - revealed in the Season 1 finale episode, Reveille (episode).

Rule 10: "Never take anything for granted." - revealed in the Season 3 episode, Probie (episode) although Gibbs also quotes it as being "Never assume" during the Season 9 episode, Rekindled (episode).

Rule 11: "Never go anywhere without a knife." - revealed in the Season 1 episode, One Shot, One Kill (episode)although it's sometimes quoted as "Never leave home without a knife" or "Always carry a knife."

Rule 12: "Never get personally involved in a case." - revealed in the Season 7 episode, Obsession (episode) and again referenced by the new SECNAV Clayton Jarvis in the Season 9 premiere episode, Nature of the Beast (episode) as the number one rule in Washington politics.

Rule 13: "When the job is done, walk away." - revealed in the Season 6 episode, Semper Fidelis (episode).

Rule 14: "Never date a co-worker." - revealed in the Season 1 episode, Enigma (episode).

Rule 15: "Never, ever involve lawyers." - revealed in "Collateral Damage." Rule 51 is written on the back of the card containing Rule 13 in "Rule Fifty-One."

Rule 16: "Bend the line, don't break it." - revealed in Anonymous was a Woman (episode).

Rule 17: "Always work as a team." - revealed in Leap of Faith (episode).

Rule 18: "If someone thinks they have the upper hand, break it." - revealed in the Season 8 finale episode, Pyramid (episode).

Rule 19: "Never, ever interrupt Gibbs during an interrogation." - revealed in the Season 14 episode, Privileged Information (episode).

Rule 20: "It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission." - revealed in Silver War (episode).

Rule 21: "Always look under." - revealed in The Artful Dodger (episode)

Rule 22: "Never ever bother Gibbs in interrogation." - revealed in Smoked (episode).

Rule 23: "Never mess with a Marine's coffee... if you want to live."- revealed during "Forced Entry."

Rule 24: "There are two ways to follow someone. First way, they never notice you. Second way, they only notice you." - Jack Knife (episode) and "Rule Fifty-One."

Rule 25: "When you need help, ask." - revealed during Blood Brothers (episode).

Rule 26: "Always watch the watchers." - revealed in "Baltimore."

Rule 27: "If you feel like you are being played, you probably are." - revealed in Nature of the Beast (episode).

Rule 28: "Your case, your lead." - revealed in Bounce (episode) placing Tony as temporarily in charge of the team, and also in Phoenix (episode) with Ducky as leader.

Rule 29: "There is no such thing as coincidence." - revealed in Obsession (episode) although DiNozzo states that Rule 39A is "There is no such thing as a small world" during Canary (episode).

Rule 30: "If it seems like someone is out to get you, they are." - revealed in Borderland (episode).

Rule 31: "Never accept an apology from someone who just sucker punched you." - revealed in Psych Out (episode).

Rule 32: "First things first, hide the women and children." - This rule number was mentioned in Patriot Down (episode) but was not stated until Rule Fifty-One (episode).

Rule 33: "Clean up the mess that you make." - revealed in "Rule Fifty-One" although it's also stated as "Never leave behind loose ends" in Hiatus Part 2 (episode).

Rule 34: "Sometimes you're wrong." - Created by Gibbs in Rule Fifty-One" by writing it on the back of the card containing Rule 13. It is unknown if his coworkers are aware of this rule.

Rule 35: "Always give people space when they get off an elevator." - revealed in Double Back (episode)

Rule 36: "Never trust a woman who doesn't trust her man." - revealed in Devil's Triangle (episode).

While some seem to deal with Gibbs only there are some very great life lessons present. If you haven's started watching "NCIS" I suggest you start soon, it is all on Netflix.

'Grey's Anatomy' Taught Me Just How Important Gay Rights Are

This episode opened my eyes and heart.


Attending a Catholic high school made it very clear in my mind that LGBTQ individuals did not fit in with society. I watched as our principle refused to allow students to invite their same-sex partners to dances. I remember our administration fighting against letting a boy on our dance team because they thought it would ruin the reputation of being a Catholic school. The way they were treated in front of me every day became the way I thought the world should treat them too. But I couldn't have been more wrong.

In season seven, episode 12 of "Grey's Anatomy," Meredith Grey encounters a patient who was trampled by horses after his partner set up a carriage ride to take them to sign their domestic partnership papers. His partner explains to Meredith that he had just wanted the day to be special because straight people get to have the most special day of their lives on their wedding day. They get the flowers, the ceremony, the reception, the gifts. At this point in time, all members of the LGBTQ got was their signature on a piece of paper.

I remember something inside of me being moved at the thought of someone simply being in love and not being able to celebrate it because people thought it was "weird" or "unnatural." I put myself in the reverse situation and thought about how much it would break my heart if society did not accept the fact that I want to marry my wonderful boyfriend some day. I cried during the scene in the show because even though it was acting, I could see just how important these two people were to each other and all of the unnecessary barriers they had to cross just to prove that their love was the same as anyone else's.

Maybe this moment was extremely late in my life to have the realization of how hard it must be for LGBTQ people to find happiness in our society, but I am glad I had that realization at all.

Certain religions crucify the LGBTQ community, saying they will go to hell for sexuality because it is a sin. Personally, I have a hard time believing that God could condemn anyone for showing another human being unconditional love.

It scares me how poisonous our society can be at times. 10 years ago, if you asked me how I felt about people in the LGBTQ community, I would probably (wrongfully) say that they freaked me out. These days, while you won't necessarily see me at a Pride parade, you will see me hyping up and supporting my awesome gay best friend to go after his crush. You will see me taking girls hitting on me as a compliment rather than something weird. You will see me openly supporting gay rights because it is the right things to do, human to human.

The saying "love is love" is so simple, yet so incredibly true.

I can't help how much I love my boyfriend and I would never in a million years expect someone to tell me to stop. Who are we to tell members of the LGBTQ community to stay in some box society and religion have built? We aren't. Love is love and you can never and will never be able to put rules and restrictions on a feeling.
