    @BEAN: It’s a fashion parade now… never understood how it got picked up though.

  • Katty

    Who cares? This is plain silly. Blake doesnt even know how to make a relationship real.

  • molly

    Final season and a new love interest? Oh you’ve got to be kidding me! I hope Serena and Dan/Nate will end up together.

  • nudeshop

    I think she’s talented but doesn’t show it because she isnt happy.

  • Marie

    Barry Watson has a sweet smile and he is very handsome.

  • Uhmm

    Ehhhh….that’s ok.

  • NotAGirl

    She’s Katie Holmes 2.0. People want a piece of her while she’s on the show, but she’ll fizzle once the show ends. Funny, Dawson’s Creek also ended after 6 seasons.

  • C

    He is like 4 years younger than Kelly Rutherford who plays Lively’s mother. WTF?

  • Diked

    She’s a b*tch. I thought she was so nice but now she’s changed. I don’t know why.

  • http://lilycheungg lilyy

    i don’t think they should have added a new love interest right at the end- she should end up with Dan/Nate to end gossip girl.
    Either way though if Chuck and Blair don’t end up together then i’d be vexed.

  • towanda

    he is 2 years older ryan reynolds who is blake lively’s real life boyfriend

  • Wook

    I remember him from seventh heaven!!!!

  • JD

    I don’t want her to end up with Dan. She works better with Nate. Dan belongs with Blair and Chuck belongs at the bottom of the sea….or a jail cell.

  • SophiaB

    He’s cute! I can’t wait for the new gg season! It’s sad that it will end soon…

  • emmaa

    I agree that bringing in a new love interest now is stupid but I love Barry! God he was so beautiful back in the day as Matt Camden :)

  • wendy!

    all i’m saying is that serena better end up with dan. dan better still have feelings for her. and lily mistake to go back with bart instead of rufus was stupid!! rufus and lily better end up together. and obvioulsy chuck and blair. if not 5 years of my life watching this show was a waste!!!!!

  • Lauren (BestTrendz)

    I like her look in the braid and poppy yellow dress with tarquise earrings.

  • Kathryn

    Why the hell do people want Dan and Serena to end up together? They were an AWFUL couple and he is now disgusted with her after how she tricked him into having sex with her in the Season 5 Finale. Serena and Nate endgame please, writers.

  • Daria

    @Kathryn: @Kathryn: i agree with you with everything you said about Dan and Serena, but she shouldn’t end up with Nate. He is really sweet, and so nice, and she doesn’t deserve him, not after she’s turned to be so mean. i mean, she’s a real bitch now, and I don’t thing Nate should be with that kind of girl. Maybe it’s good that they brought in a new character. Maybe he is the right one for Serena..
