Now that 2012 is over, it's always interesting to look back and see what our favorite Hollywood couples have been doing in the romance department and make some predictions of what will happen in the year to come.
It appears that I spoke too soon when dubbing "Portrait of a Lady Alexander" the ickiest episode of "Gossip Girl" to date -- that was before we'd witnessed Ivy trying to screw her way through every father on the Upper East Side.
"Vile" was the perfect catch-up for any viewer who has suffered a blunt force head trauma over the past six years and forgotten everything that's happened up until this point; the characters were all doing their best to remind us about things that happened as recently as last week.
Del Toro said the mustache his character wore came from "a gardener that works on my street that has that kind of a mustache."
This week's episode wasn't as awful as last week's bland installment, but only because the show threw an incomprehensible stream of plot twists at us to distract from its overall ridiculousness.
With lavishly dressed characters and cameos by fashion heavy hitters ranging from Tory Burch to Stefano Tonchi, Gossip Girl has also had an undeniable impact on the way we dress.
"Gone Maybe Gone" succeeded in recapturing some of the sparkle that's been missing. There were knowing winks and sharp one-liners, with all of the characters generally behaving like sane and rational versions of themselves (except for Georgina).
Take a moment to process that. Did you even know they were actually dating? Not merely tabloid dating? Wasn't she just in a relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio? Wasn't Ryan really supposed to end up with Sandra Bullock?
Savages is an edgy, creative movie that holds the attention of the audience from start to finish and then stays with them after they leave the theater.

"Savages" allows its cast to have fun in ways that safe summer fare like "The Amazing Spider-Man" could only dream. To celebrate this, let's rank the cast of "Savages" in ascending order of madness.
Victoria's Secret came out with their annual "Wha...
Among Luli's gifts is a .45 Smith & Wesson. After mom (trash queen Juliette Lewis) runs off with a sugar daddy and her father disappears as well, Luli -- flat-out abandoned -- decides to hit the road for Las Vegas to find a sugar daddy of her own.
Gossip Girl, about a bunch of rich Upper East Siders and their insanely ridiculous lives, has never been a perfect show. This season, however, the show feels like it has seriously lost its way.
Whether she was getting up close and personal with handsy bridge and tunnel types, mistaking cops for strippers or downing shots like Snooki, Blair's ditzy drunk routine was utterly hilarious, and played perfectly by Leighton Meester.
Like in nature when leaves turn to those gorgeous autumn colors against the gray sky, a stylist like myself becomes instantly inspired to create warm "spiced up" colors for the long winter nights ahead.
