HATE IT! Gossip No More! It's Confirmed

After several leaked stories about a possible 'Gossip Girl' spin-off -- both of which were kicked to the curb by the GG creators -- comes word of a real, CONFIRMED 'Gossip Girl' off-shoot.

Josh Schwartz has confirmed that a pilot episode focusing on the teen life of Serena's Mum, Lily, will be broadcast this May. The spin-off will take place in 1980's Los Angeles, as the young Lily Rhodes (as she was then known) lives a crazed teen existence, hanging out on the Sunset Strip while living with her disgraced sister. 

Must say that I am intrigued but will people watch? Does Lily's backstory have enough oomph to fill a series -- and one that is set in a decade many a 'Gossip Girl' fan didn't even experience? Me, I'll watch anything related to GG but a part of me is worried that this new venture will cheapen the 'brand'. And of course, it won't feature Chuck Bass! Now there's a big, fat negative!

I'm going to spend the weekend making my sister watch the whole first season so she's ready for wednesday. And she won't have to wait the months that I have.

I actually have avoided reading quite a lot and I'm so bloody excited!!!
