There have been a few developments in the love lives of sports stars.
First, New York Yankee Derek Jeter and Sports Illustrated model Hannah Davis have called it quits after less than a year of dating.
The Parents Television Council is taking aim at Hollywood's favorite Upper East Siders.
The Council has asked the CW Network to pull an upcoming episode of "Gossip Girl," which will feature a steamy threesome with the show's main characters.
"To include a storyline like this on a program that is expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers is reckless and irresponsible," PTC President Tim Winter says in a statement. "We are asking each CW Network affiliate to use their common sense and preempt this episode."
Ads teasing the "Gossip Girl" threesome began airing this week on the CW.
"CW has been defending graphic content on 'Gossip Girl' by asserting that they don't target teenagers," Winter continues. "Such a claim doesn't even pass the 'laugh test.' The network's own promotions talk about the program as a 'parent's worst nightmare.' How many 30-year olds care what their parents think? Zero. Only a teenager would be responsive to a parental 'forbidden fruit' marketing ploy like that, and CW knows it."
Winter warns that the "PTC will monitor this episode very closely" and the group "will not hesitate to contact local and national advertisers; and if this program violates broadcast decency law, rest assured that our members will contact the Federal Communications Commission."
This isn't the first time the PTC has been up in arms over the show. In 2008, they took issue with an ad campaign that featured a shirtless Chace Crawford in bed with an older woman, and Ed Westwick feeding a cherry suggestively to Leighton Meester.
Former Disney darling Hilary Duff is joining the cast of "Gossip Girl."
EW.com reports the 21 year old will appear on the CW hit for several episodes, in which Duff will play Olivia Burke, a famous starlet who wants to live the "normal" college-life. Olivia is enrolled at New York University with Blair (Leighton Meester), Dan (Penn Badgley) and Vanessa (Jessica Szohr). Plus, Olivia will be roomies with Vanessa.
Hilary will debut in this season's fourth episode, set to air October 5.
Did the stars of "Gossip Girl" really walk out on a $500 tab at a New York City hotspot?
According to Page Six, that's true. The NY Post dished that everyone's favorite Upper East Siders -- including actors Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester, Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick -- partied it up at Brother Jimmy's in Manhattan after a Kings of Leon concert. They "held an impromptu party in the private room upstairs," revealed a source. "Nobody ever paid the $500 bar tab the group racked up."
Reps for "Gossip Girl" and Brother Jimmy's did not return calls from the newspaper.
