“Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford has cut a deal in his marijuana case in Texas. The 25-year-old actor’s record will be wiped clean if he behaves for one year and performs community service.
Crawford was arrested last June at a pub parking lot in Plano after cops found less than two ounces of marijuana in his possession while inside a car.
If he meets certain requirements for one year, his misdemeanor case will be dismissed and his record will not reflect the charge.
TMZ reports that the conditions include avoiding getting arrested or being engaged in any criminal conduct for a year, performing 24 hours of community service, and reporting to a probation officer once a month.
Crawford is expected to perform his community service in the middle of summer.
Taylor Momsen usually makes headlines for her on-stage antics than her music. But regardless of what reason you’d have to check her out live, she’s heading to your town soon. The “Gossip Girl” star is hitting the road with her band The Pretty Reckless in support of their first full-length album, “Light Me Up.” The album will be released digitally on February 8th. The Pretty Reckless will kick off their tour on February 11th at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. It’ll continue on through March 20th, when they wrap in Hartford, CT. Runner Runner will open for the band. 17-year-old Momsen garnered major attention last year when she flashed her breasts to a crowd while performing on-stage with her band on stage. She was also reportedly suspended from “Gossip Girl” for various reasons. Along with being rock band frontwoman and little Jenny Humphrey, Momsen is also the face of Madonna’s “Material Girl” line for Macy’s and John Galliano’s fragrance “parlez-moi d’amour” (Talk to me about love).

Jennifer Aniston is set to play her sexiest role yet in her upcoming movie “Horrible Bosses.” With a little more edge like her acclaimed indie “The Good Girl,” Aniston’s new role is all bad girl. Aniston plays Julia, an orthodontist who’s into kinky sex and constantly has it on the brain. In the script, acquired by a Life & Style insider, she even breaks a nail while pleasuring herself to Penn Badgley in “Gossip Girl.” “’Horrible Bosses’ is a total departure from the romantic comedies she’s been doing,” an insider told Life & Style magazine. “You won’t believe your eyes.”In the sure-to-be R-rated comedy due out next year, Aniston plays one of three friends who conspire to murder their bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness.Aniston is starring alongside Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, and Jamie Foxx in the new movie, who plays the interestingly named character Mother—-er Jones. But first, Bateman will co-star with Aniston in the upcoming comedy “The Switch,” opening August 20th. In the movie, Bateman’s character swaps a donor’s sperm with his own which Aniston uses to impregnate herself. They reunite seven years later before he meets his son and has to tell her the secret
Leighton Meester And Robert Pattinson Reportedly Hooked Up. “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester has reportedly had an overnight rendezvous with “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson. The young stars apparently spent the night together in her New York apartment. According to an In Touch source, Pattinson was spotted entering Meester’s apartment at night and didn’t leave until 11 a.m. the next morning. “He ducked out of the building and hopped into a waiting car. He apparently spent the night with Leighton, and didn’t want anyone to know!” A close pal of the actress confirmed the said affair to the magazine, adding that she has a texting romance with it. However, Gossip Cop begs to differ. Quoting another unnamed source, the website swears that the report is untrue. Meester recently broke up with “Gossip Girl” occasional co-star Sebastian Stan, while Pattinson is being linked to “Twilight” love interest Kristen Stewart.
Another “Gossip Girl” Co-Stars Split: Leighton Meester And Sebastian Stan Break Up. After the breakup reports of “Gossip Girl” stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr surfaced, other co-stars are said to follow their lead. Leighton Meester and occasional co-star Sebastian Stan have reportedly called it quits. According to a friend of the 24-year-old actress singer, who plays the privileged and scheming Blair Waldorf on The CW series, she broke up with the 26-year-old actor because “she doesn’t know how to be in a relationship and doesn’t really like them.” The insider adds to OK! magazine that Stan, who appears in the series as Carter Baizen occasionally, is “heartbroken” by her decision. The report follows the news that Westwick broke up with Szohr after he learned she has flirted with one of his friends. It seems that dating co-stars is the norm in “Gossip Girl.” Series regulars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley are also a couple.
“Glee” Star Cory Monteith, Katie Cassidy Join Selena Gomez For “Monte Carlo”. Selena Gomez is heading to Europe and she’s taking some other television stars with her. “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester, “Melrose Place” resident Katie Cassidy, and Cory Monteith of “Glee” are all heading to “Monte Carlo” with the teen Disney star. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Monteith and Cassidy are the latest to join the cast for the upcoming comedy based on the the book “Headhunters” by Jules Bass. The story follows Gomez halfway around the world to a charity auction after a case of wrong identity finds her mistaken for a socialite. Gomez and her gal pals team up to find a million-dollar necklace after it goes missing. Cassidy and Meester will play her friends, while Monteith will play her boyfriend who hops on a plane to Europe to prove his dedication to her. Andie MacDowell is set to play Gomez’s mom. The movie is set to start shooting in the spring in locales like Budapest, Paris, and Nice, France. Nicole Kidman, who was originally slated to star, is serving as executive producer. She also may take on a supporting role. “Nicole is the coolest person ever, and very sweet,” Gomez told In Touch about meeting the Oscar winner. “So I was very happy!” Selena Gomez is next set to appear in this summer’s “Ramona and Beezus,” based on the books by Beverly Clearly. Cassidy will hit the big screen in this month’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” while Leighton Meester appears in “Date Night” with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell.
It wouldn’t surprise us if “Gossip Girl’s” fabulously wealthy and well-connected Nate Archibald hobnobs with Sir Elton John on occasion. But it turns out that so does his real-life counterpart, Chace Crawford. Crawford appeared on “Regis and Kelly” Monday (March 8) and dished about how Elton John approached him at an industry party a couple years ago and confessed to being a big fan of the show. Crawford said the pop legend even added that he gets it “specially shipped out to London.” Turns out the “GG” star showed up at his famous fan’s annual Oscar viewing party Sunday night (March 7) … and admitted to “stalking” Kate Beckinsale for part of the night. Finally the interview got around to talking about Monday night’s episode, when “GG” finally returns after the three-month hiatus fans have been forced to endure (oh the agony!). After Crawford agreed with Kelly that she and guest host/husband Mark Consuelos should not let their middle-school aged son watch the show, we got to see a clip from the premiere episode, “The Hurt Locker.” We’ll be watching Monday night’s episode and bringing you a full recap of all the schemes, scandals and steamy scenes right after — along with some thoughts and notable quotes from the show. So Elton, if your shipment is running late, no worries. We’re here to hook you up.
Chace Crawford’s full “Regis and Kelly” interview below:
“Gossip Girl” Clothing Collection To Be Released. “Gossip Girl” fans will now have the chance to dress as stylish as the shows characters. Executives for the show have inked a deal with British high street store, Miss Selfridge, to design a collection based on the characters in the hit series. Characters such as Serena van der Woodsen, played by Blake Lively, and Leighton Meester’s Blair Waldo will serve as inspiration for the line. The general manager of Warner Bros Consumer Products U.K. Paul Bufton stated, “Fashion is intrinsic to Gossip Girl and a key ingredient in the continued popularity of the series. Miss Selfridge has created a collection that is true to the ideals of the show and one that young women will aspire to own.” The new collection will hit stores in April.
Pop star Lady Gaga, whose fashion sense has garnered as much attention as her hit songs (cue “Poker Face” for the umpteenth time, please), will receive the Stylemaker Award from designer Marc Jacobs at the 13th annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards. The event, which takes place Monday at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York, also pays tribute to Diane von Furstenberg, Zappos.com, Burberry and, um, Barbie, who will receive the Fashion Icon award for, one supposes, providing such a realistic image of the feminine form to young girls for decades. Other presenters at the event include Calvin Klein, Betsey Johnson, Molly Sims and “Gossip Girl” designer Eric Daman. A full list of honorees is after the break, but … Barbie? Really?
What a motley crew this is! Look closely at the official snapshot of Lady Gaga on the set of Gossip Girl, and you’ll see that she’s fallen in with the likes of a shaggy lumberjack (hello, Penn Badgley) and what appears to be a Cockney English flower girl (Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf as Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle?)—or perhaps Leighton’s just wearing a beret/snood and a light-absorbing black getup. Seriously though, somewhere in the world, right this minute, a celebrity photo stylist is hyperventilating. Gaga, seen here wearing a red sequined cocktail dress adorned with faux nipple tape, is set to perform one of her pop-hit songs on the Nov. 16 episode of Gossip Girl, entitled, “The Last Days of Disco Stick.” And you totally spotted the mini-me version of Gaga on last night’s ep of Gossip Girl, right?
