TV Watch Gossip Girl
Jessica Szohr is a long way from the steps of the Met.
Okay, her Gossip Girl character Vanessa wasn't exactly cruising with Blair (Leighton Meester) and Serena (Blake Lively)'s prep school clique, but her upcoming role as a vigilante nurse is a huge departure from playing a Brooklyn hipster.
Hot on the heels of her CW costars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick landing ABC pilots, Szohr, 30, is heading back to the small screen in USA's drama Complications – and PEOPLE has the exclusive first look at the show, set to air this summer.
Spotted: Chace Crawford ready to return to TV.
The Gossip Girl actor has been cast as the lead in ABC's pilot Boom, PEOPLE has confirmed.
This is his first leading role on the small screen since the soapy CW show ended in 2012, though Crawford, 29, guested as a WASP-y Yale student on Glee last season (typecasting, much?).
In honor of the sexy star's comeback, we're taking a trip down memory lane with Nate Archibald, the brooding lax bro he played on Gossip Girl. Here are Crawford's hottest moments as the prince of the Upper East Side. (And yes, he's shirtless in most of them. Xoxo, Gossip Girl.)
The myth. The legend. The prom.
Kelly Rutherford's attempt to regain custody of her two kids has failed.
A judge has ruled that though Rutherford and her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, technically have joint custody, their children – son Hermes, 7, and daughter, Helena, 4½ – will continue to reside in Monaco, where he lives, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
The former Gossip Girl star, 45, plans to appeal the judge's decision.
"It strikes me as outrageous and unconstitutional that children can be effectively deported in order to accommodate their exiled father without knowing why he can't come back in and he has not been required to make any efforts to try to get back to the U.S. by the U.S. courts," she tells PEOPLE.
Kelly Rutherford has filed for bankruptcy.
The Gossip Girl actress's financial problems stem from the lengthy custody dispute involving her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, TMZ reports.
The bankruptcy petition, according to legal documents obtained, shows that Rutherford, 44, spent almost $1.5 million on legal fees as the divorce/custody battle played out in court, adding that she also owes $350,000 in income taxes for 2012 and has an American Express bill of $25,251.

New couple Leighton Meester and Adam Brody stepped out for an early dinner in Venice, Calif., on Thursday evening.
Just after 6 p.m., Brody – who wore a red sweatshirt – and Meester – who dressed in an oversized cardigan – met up with a pal at La Fiesta Brava, a local Mexican restaurant.
An onlooker tells PEOPLE that both Brody and Meester ordered enchiladas while chatting about film with their friend. "She sipped on a Mexican coke and sat back smiling and listening to the boys," the source adds.
Did you figure it out?
The series finale of Gossip Girl, which aired Monday on the CW, had it all: two weddings (Blair marries Chuck; Serena marries Dan), two stunning wedding gowns (powder blue, beaded Elie Saab Couture on B, and a gold and white strapless Georges Chakra Couture on S), cameo appearances by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell (as themselves, reading the roles of Blair and Serena from a script written by Dan), the return of Jenny Humphrey (briefly!) and the reveal of Gossip Girl's identity. And it's not Dorota.
The person behind the mysterious blog that has kept tabs on the Upper East Side's elite was not a girl at all – it was Brooklyn's very own Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley).
The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.
Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.
Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.

Art imitates life!
Blake Lively's been photographed in a wedding dress … but it's not the Marchesa gown she wore to wed Ryan Reynolds during their super secret ceremony last month.
The newlywed, 25, was snapped donning a gold and cream Georges Chakra Couture strapless gown on the set of Gossip Girl on Tuesday, as she stood opposite costar Penn Badgley.
Lively's real life wedding dress will be revealed in a photo package in the December issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, as the event planning powerhouse herself was behind the affair.
