28th August 2012 Penn and Leighton behind the scenes on set trying different types of chocolates.
Leighton Meester on the set of Gossip Girl (August 28th, 2012)
I had an orientation meeting for school in the morning and my roommate, Krista, had hers after me so when she came back we left. We got on the train and went to the UES where we met up with Eileen (http://insatiable-thoughts.tumblr.com/ https://twitter.com/heyeileeen), her sister, and Xialen (https://twitter.com/xialenxoxo).
But before we met them Krista and I went to 80th (everyone else was on 82nd) and we saw Ed and Leighton’s trailer (yes, they shared one this time) and then we went to go meet everyone else (and they were talking to one of the people who works for the show that we met, and became friends with, when we saw them film by Madison Square Park). He left and then all of us decided to go to EL’s trailer. So we went there but no one was in it so we left and went to Blake and Penn’s tailer across the street.
After that we went to go watch them film and all we saw was
Serena and Dan (but we watched the stunt doubles) ride down the street on a vespa and paparazzi chase them (this reminds me of the thing in S1 when Serena said she loved vespas and everything but then Dan was like uh, I have this limo for us. I guess it’ll be some throwback to that)
Then they started to clean up and we went to go walk to another street but we walked through the filming stuff and we saw Norman and asked him if we could take a picture and he was SO nice and we took pictures with him and he told us the name of the episode (Where The Vile Things Are) and then after that he tweeted us back haha
But after we met Norman we went back to EL’s trailer then we found out that Blake and Penn (or just Blake, idk) were filming where we just were so we went but we couldn’t really see anything so Krista and I went to go get milkshakes and everyone else stayed and Blake said hi to Eileen and Xialen.
After we came back, I forget exactly what happened but sometime after that Krista and I ended up going to where Blake’s trailer was (but all the way down on the other end of the street) and we saw her leave.
Then we just kind of walked around (we did a lot of waiting today) and then eventually we saw Norman in a store and they were setting up to film and then later we saw a tweet that Leighton was on set so we went to her trailer and she was in there waiting for hair and makeup. And someone opened the door and we saw Lei on the phone and Trudy was running around. But then these dumb girls kept moving closer and closer to the trailer and then when Leighton came out the security guard took her to the other end of the street instead of past us (which he would have taken her that way if those stupid girls stayed back like they were supposed to.)
So we decided to go to where we saw them set up before and Krista and I saw Leighton and Penn film a scene and then a few minutes later the Eileen, her sister, and Xialen came (they waited at Lei’s trailer)
The scene was basically like this:
Dan and Blair looked like they were talking before
Penn stops and Blair is talking to him (she looked angry/upset)
Then he walks away and Blair gets out her phone
(I think it had something to do with what happened with Serena and the vespa from before)
Then we went back to the MET (we wanted to see what they were filming before we left) and we saw half of the limo in the street (they were filming either a Chuck and Blair scene or just a Chuck scene in the limo) and we also saw Ed (he was blocking)
So after that we saw Ed leave and we went back to their trailer (because we had to go that way to the subway anyway and we heard Ed was there) so we got to the corner and saw people taking pictures with Ed so we ran across the street but we were too late to get a picture with him but then we saw Leighton was getting out so (since everyone stayed back like they were supposed to) Leighton walked right past us and as she walked in front of me I looked at her and said “Hi Leighton!” and she looked back at me and said hi back! OMG! SHE’S GORGEOUS IN PERSON!!! She’s my idol and favorite actress and I can’t believe I was SOOOO close to her (I could literally touch her) and get to see her film! DREAM COME TRUE!!!
Oh, and somewhere in between meeting Norman and seeing Leighton, we stole three of those No Parking signs! There were two (street) signs that had two signs on them and Eileen, Xialen, and I each cut one off and took it. No on was there to see it and we were like “I wonder if they’ll come back and be like ‘Where the hell did these signs go?’”
So after that we just went back to the subway and went home. This was definitely another successful day of Gossip Girl stalking!
Here are my pictures :)
