After six years of playing Manhattan rich kid Nate Archibald, Chace Crawford has said goodbye to Gossip Girl. 'It was like leaving college, just without a degree': Chace Crawford reflects on the end of Gossip Girl as he models for Mr Porter.
When real life imitates fiction....reader Bretta Chapman sent me this photo of the Vanderhorst mausoleum at the Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston---just like I'd described it in RETURN TO TRADD STREET. Except I've never been to the cemetery and didn't know this existed!! #placesoftradd
Sorry for the reflection in the photo, but this was taken in the shop window at Berlin's department store on the corner of King and Broad in Charleston. If you will recall, in The Strangers on Montagu Street, Melanie's mother buys Mellie THE red dress for her 40th birthday party at the exact same store. And this is EXACTLY as I pictured it!! Hmm... #placesoftradd
