“Gossip Girl” Gets “Pretty in Pink”

80’s icon Andrew McCarthy is headed to direct your favorite Upper East Siders Blake Lively and Leighton Meester!

Gossip Girl here…have we got a story for you! We hear that a certain 80’s superstar is going to direct your favorite frisky teens!

That’s right! Andrew McCarthy, who once wooed Molly Ringwald’s character Andie Walsh as Blaine McDonnagh in the classic teen flick Pretty in Pink, is taking his popped pink collar back to high school.

“We have a nice episode, all sorts of juicy things happen – the normal Gossip Girl juicy things,” Andrew tells People Magazine. “I can’t give you much. Except, there is a 9 ½ Weeks kind of thing going on in one story line.” HOT.

This isn’t Andrew’s first brush with Gossip Girl glory, either. The actor was supposed to star in – get it — Gossip Girls’ 80’s spinoff Lily, based on the rockin’ life of a young Lily Van der Woodsen; he was meant to have played Serena Van Der Woodsen’s grandfather, Rick Rhodes. Alas, the show was canceled after one episode.

But it looks like Andrew has his chance to show the Upper East Side what he’s got. Hear that, Serena? Your grandpa’s back in town — you better behave!
