Gossip Girl: Who’s Stealing Blair’s Spotlight?

Blake Lively, Leighton Meester Giovanni Rufino / The CW

Will hotties Rufus and Lily ever get their due on Gossip Girl? Sure, they’re really really really old (kidding!), but that didn’t make it any less exciting to hear that there were plans in the works for a series of Young Rufus and Lily in Love webisodes.

But Josh Schwartz himself tells me exclusively that while that idea was explored, that concept won’t be going forward and instead another Gossip Girl fave is going to be featured in new mobile content instead.

Who is getting the spotlight? And why do I get the feeling Blair (Leighton Meester) would blow a gasket if she knew this person was getting all this attention?

Dorota, Blair’s loyal but much-put-upon housekeeper and confidante, is finally getting some glory of her own. According to Josh Schwartz, talks of doing a Young-Lily-and-Rufus web series were scratched and replaced with “a special Verizon series all about Dorota.”

Or, as Blair would call her, “DOROTA!!”

Gossip Girl signed an agreement with Verizon late last year that puts a variety of Verizon phones in the hands of our Upper East Side faves and has now paved the way for a Verizon-exclusive look at the secret life of Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski). We might even learn crazy secrets like…her last name!

Don’t know about you, but over the past few installments of Gossip Girl Dorota has quietly turned into one of my fave characters. (Among other things, I would love to see Dorota give “Basshole” Chuck a talking-to about his bad behavior with Blair.)

Does this sound fun to you? Post in the comments…

Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers & Previews: So What is Wrong with Izzie? How Real is Denny to her?

Grey’s Anatomy: What Is Wrong With Izzie Stevens?

Grey’s Anatomy has had some nutty storylines before, but nothing has stret

ched the limits of plausibility quite as much as “Izzie does the deed with Dead Denny.” Not even the non-melty icicle that stabbed Cristina!

As you can see from sneak peek of next week’s episode above, Izzie still appears to be 100 percent off her rocker.

So what the bejeezus is going on? It’s time to find out: Is Isobel Stevens, M.D. (Katherine Heigl), crazy, grieving, fantasizing or, quite possibly, all of the above?

Katherine Heigl, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Grey's Anatomy ABC/RANDY HOLMES

Theory #1: Izzie Has a Brain Tumor

Evidence:
Symptoms of a tumor: inability to concentrate (check), gradual changes in intellectual or emotional capacity (check), lethargy (check), changes in behavior or personality (check), and/or hallucinations (check).
Verdict: Debunked…or so we think. Shonda Rhimes told my frenemy Michael Ausiello, “I think the love triangle with Denny, Izzie and Alex is among the most interesting we’ve ever done. Watching the chemistry between Jeffrey and Katherine again has been really touching. I can’t wait for our viewers to see where we’re taking it. But what it won’t involve is Izzie having a brain tumor.”

Come on, Shonda! We know your games; you’re just trying to throw us off the scent!

Theory #2: Izzie Is Losing Her Mind

Evidence: She is having hallucinations of her dead fiancé. Active, ongoing hallucinations where they have tons of sweaty sex and he incessantly follows her around. If it looks crazy, sounds crazy and smells crazy, it probably is crazy. Even the Seattle Grace nurses have blogged that she’s out of her right mind: “Izzie Stevens has lost it. I mean it. She’s gone…I hope things get better for her because it looks like Izzie can’t take one more bad thing happening…” Could the nurses know more than we think they know?
Verdict: Izzie could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown, which could definitely have implications for her relationship with Alex. His mom was nuts, and Ava (Elizabeth Reaser) had a devastating breakdown of her own last year–a situation, it’s worth noting, that Izzie helped Alex endure.

All this does beg the question, though: Why is Alex so crazy-making? Is he just too hot? Does his pure sexual energy fry the brain?

Theory #3: Izzie Is Dead, Too

Evidence: Everything is going right for Iz, other than seeing her dead ex-fiancé. She has roommates who love her, boy toy Alex (Justin Chambers), who finally wants to be with her, and a job she loves, despite the fact she stole a heart…Is it possible that it’s all just a happy limbo where Izzie has dwelt since she killed herself after Denny’s first demise? What, too M. Night Shyamalan for you?
Verdict: As far as the rest of the characters are concerned, Izzie is alive and well, but who knows? And Mer has communed with dead Denny, dead Kyle Chandler and her dead mom.

Theory #4: Izzie Has Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Evidence: The girl is way too busy fighting for surgeries to even take a moment to deal with the loss of her fiancé. This has happened once before, when Izzie was too active being an underwear model to face the emotional reality of putting her daughter up for adoption.
Verdict: Izzie’s own best theory on what’s happening to her is a delayed grief experience, and who’s to say the doctor can’t diagnose herself…

Theory #5: Izzie Has an Overactive Imagination

Evidence: Plain and simple, sex with a dead man is not possible, even if it is…fulfilling. Coexecutive producer Joan Rater said on the Grey’s Writers’ Blog: “Izzie knows this isn’t real, she knows that, but it feels real and she just…closes her eyes and, you heard the sounds coming from the room, as Meredith said, it sounded kinda porny, so whatever’s going on with the dead guy, the sex is good, at least …”
Verdict: If this is the big love story the writers were hinting at for Heigl, all I can say is “What the frak?!” She’s essentially having a love story with herself, and that’s not healthy.

So which theory do you think fits best? Or do you have a better one?
