I have to say that when I started watching the series again, I realize how obsessed I was –still am- with Blair Waldorf. and who isn’t? She lives in a beautiful Pent House apartment in the Upper East Side, and Dorota is always there to assist her. (I heart Dorota!) She has an impeccable style and at the moment a marvelous boyfriend. Yes, Chuck Bass is even better for her, but at the beginning of Season 1 I truly believed Nate was the one for her. Silly me.
And then there was Serena Van der Woodsen, the blond, tall, beautiful bombshell who was also smart. She was so perfect, minus the drug/sex with Nate/suicidal brother/ divorce-y mother thing. She was the IT girl. Every boy wanted her –Go Lonely Boy!- and every girl wanted to be her. Her looks and charm get her everything, and yes, I was jealous of her.
Even if I loved these two, I despise the way she and Serena rolled. They scheme and fight and turn each other down. They are friends, they love each other, and no matter what, at the end of the day they know they have one another for support. Yeah right.
I loathe the way they both sent blasts for GG to post just to turn the other down. Blair was afraid of Serena’s taking over her Queen Bee status, and obviously hated her. She took Nate’s V-Card when he was with Blair, and that is not what friends are for, and she also did that to Dan! She slept with two of Blair’s boyfriends. And yes, B was a scheming gal too. She told people at Yale that Serena killed a man, and dated the love of S’s life . The list goes on and on, and I believe none of these things are 100% forgivable. Neither S nor B are saints, neither devils. The rivalry has always been there, often transforming these two into frenemies.
And I think is what make them interesting. I mean, I seriously don’t want a relationship like that. I like having someone who I can talk and who will be there for me no matter what, but at some point, that’s their relationship. They worked that way, and even if hate was there, they knew that deep –deep deep- down, they loved each other.
Because they are Serena and Blair. Best Friends Forever and Ever
