Will Chuck and Blair ever get back together? Will Serena ever date anyone she can settle down with? Where did Eric go? When we found out we’d get to chat with Cecily Von Ziegesar, the woman who created the Gossip Girl series, we seriously wanted to ask her all those questions.

She didn’t spill all her storyline secrets–but she did tell us all about her worst date, the song she can’t stop singing, and her addiction to a certain energy drink!

In the meantime, I guess we’ll just have to rely on her killer episode recaps–I practically live by those!

Here are Cecily’s answers to our Big Gurl Ten!


1. What’s your worst date story?

In high school, this boy took me to a sushi place. That’s the one food I can’t stand. Raw fish? Yuck.

Super yum! Source:

2. If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Pizza–a really crispy brick oven pie with fresh mozzarella.

3. Whose phone number do you wish you had?

Woody Allen’s! I adore him.

4. What’s something you’ve always wanted that you’ve never gotten?

A beach house.

5. What’s your secret nickname?

No nicknames. Although I’m sure people call me things behind my back.

She's the one who started it all! Source:

6. What’s the guiltiest pleasure on your iPod?

Carly Simon singing Nobody Does it Better. I sing along –I’m sure it’s pretty awful.

7. Best advice you ever got?

Write what you know.

8. Favorite bargain purchase?

Zara Girl rubber riding boots on sale! Kids clothes are cheaper and luckily I’m small enough to shop in the kids section.

9. Instant pick me up?

Sugar Free Redbull.


10. Describe the high school you in 3 words.

Insecure, rebellious, emotional.
