After a brief recess, Gossip Girl picked back up last night with Episode 4 of the teen dramedy's *sniffle* sixth and final season. "Portrait of a Lady Alexander" opens with Nate (Chace Crawford) mourning the loss of Dan's (Penn Badgley) Upper East Side exposé to Vanity Fair. And just to make matters worse, what's the subject of Lonely Boy's second Inside installation? Nate's majorly under-performing, spiralling Spectator. Dan's scathing review of the young Archibald's character sends up red flags with Sage's (Sofia Black-D'Elia) father/Serena's (Blake Lively) boyfriend Steven Spence (Barry Watson) who threatened to force Sage to stop seeing Nate. Serena saves Sage's day and relationship, endorsing Nate's many good guy qualities and convincing her boo Steven to give her friend a shot.

Meanwhile, Blair (Leighton Meester) takes a break from helming Waldorf Designs to help Chuck (Ed Westwick) figure out what his father Bart (Robert John Burke) has been hiding and why he faked his death all those years ago. His pursuit for the truth drives the wedge further between father and son but also between Bart and Lily (Kelly Rutherford). Lily does her best to transition smoothly to life after Rufus (Matthew Settle), but leaving the relics of her old life in a Brooklyn loft with a vengeful Ivy Dickens (Kaylee DeFer) is a recipe for trouble, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

The last two days have been rough for the Eastern Seaboard and Caribbean—weathering Hurricane Sandy has been, and will be, devastating. But I'm a firm believer that light and humor is as important on the road to recovery as wearing the proper rain gear, so once my internet got turned back on and the lights stopped flickering, I went right back into Drag Race All-Stars for the levity, well wishes for everyone affected from Staten to Haiti still in my heart.

RuPaul in her show stopping neon runway ensemble.

Last night, Barack Obama shut down Mitt Romney with a RuPaul-worthy dig, wearing a Presidential tie and telling the governor "the '80s are calling, they want their foreign policy back." (Burn!) Meanwhile, a certain well-respected drag doyenne was lip-syncing for her life with half a boobplate bulbing out of an iridescent, Cher-invoking bodysuit, covered bodaciously with a silver pasty. So many bodies got read all over the cable-guide last night. But while the Presidential debates were giving their parade wave, the almost-most important American match up on television last night commenced for its debut. RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars, that behemoth catfight of quick wits and huge wigs, paired 12 of the most beloved drag queens from the first four seasons to weed out the best for the ultimate resurrection. If you watched it and DVR'd the debates for after, you're a true patriot. RuPaul's cackling laugh track is a goddamn national treasure—half Glinda, half Wicked—as American as a flag lapel pin the size of a cockatiel.

With every new episode, we're inching closer to the end of Gossip Girl. While this third ep "Dirty Rotten Scandals" was devoid the customary weekly high society soirée, it did include another GG favorite: a fashion show! Despite completely missing New York Fashion Week, Blair (Leighton Meester) makes her public debut at the helm of Eleanor Waldorf Designs with this mid-October runway show, but not without enduring a few hang-ups along the way. Busy B runs herself ragged to the point of severe exhaustion and dehydration, but lucky for her, Chuck (Ed Westwick) swoops in, taking time off of his quest to usurp power from his father Bart (Robert John Burke) to wield his impeccable understanding of Blair's taste all over the Waldorf runway.

Dan (Penn Badgley) and Nate (Chace Crawford) partner up for the launch of Humphrey's Inside reboot (now with real names!) in The Spectator. The subject of Lonely Boy's first post? His dear old dad, Rufus (Matthew Settle). Serena (Blake Lively) juggles some family issues of her own this episode. Nope, we're pretty sure Lily (Kelly Rutherford) still has no idea where her daughter is. We're talking about Serena's new beau Steven (Barry Watson) and his wily and angsty daughter Sage (Sofia Black-D'Elia). Sage gives B and S a run for their scheming money, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

With just 10 episodes comprising this sixth and final season of Gossip Girl, each weekly installation brings us closer to knowing the long-concealed identity of Gossip Girl and *sniffle* the end of an era. But just because the GG writers have a limited amount of time to wrap up story lines definitely doesn't mean they're skimping on the character adds. This season introduces Nate's (Chace Crawford) newest love interest, Sage (Sofia Black-D'Elia), and Serena's (Blake Lively) new beau, Steven (Barry Watson), and the episode kicks off with a messy relationship triangle square involving all four.

Hell-bent on usurping his father Bart's (Robert John Burke) unjust assumption of power over Bass Industries, Chuck (Ed Westwick) has devoted his time to uncovering the dark secret that caused Bart to fake his death back in the day. Meanwhile, Blair (Leighton Meester) rounded up some minions to help ensure that Waldorf Designs' change-of-hands continues to go as smoothly as possible. And Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) acts as Dan's (Penn Badgley) publicist and manager, shopping for the perfect outlet to publish Lonely Boy's Upper East Side tell-all take-down. If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Adam Lambert on Pretty Little Liars' Halloween episode.
Photo: ABC Family

Halloween month may already be in full swing, but there are still three weeks left until the spookiest day of the year. Costume planning, plotting and scheming may have you busy, but you might also be eagerly, anxiously, desperately awaiting a date a little sooner than All Hallow's Eve: October 23rd. Have no idea what I'm talking about? Well you must not be a diehard Adam Lambert fan, then, because if you were you would know that the 23rd is the night that Adam will appear as a guest star on the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special! Here's what we know right now: Adam will perform at a costume party in the episode, which is called "This Is A Dark Ride." From a new teaser video, we know that one of the songs he will play will be "Cuckoo," from Tresspassing, and that his costume is something like a Victorian meets, well, Glambert, Vampire. We can't imaging it would be all that easy to sing with those fangs in, but if anyone can do it, Adam Lambert can. We also know, from an earlier teaser, that this appearance is going to involve not just singing, but acting as well! Is there anything he can't do? Check out some more teaser photos after the jump!

I guess this is it. The final season of Gossip Girl is officially underway, and this first episode marks the beginning of the end. *single tear* With a whole summer between now and last season's finale, there was a lot of catching up to be done. Dan (Penn Badgley) spent his summer at a writing fellowship in Italy where he enlisted Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) to help him pen his next scathing exposé of the Upper East Side. We found Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) going from wild nights together in Monte Carlo to serving out the rest of their summers sorting out business in different parts of the globe (Paris and Dubai, respectively), but promising they would end up together, you know, eventually.

Chuck's father Bart (Robert John Burke) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) spent their vacation rekindling their old flame and returned home happy and relaxed with Rufus (Matthew Settle) barely an afterthought. That is, until they discovered Serena (Blake Lively) hadn't been home all summer and disappeared without a word. Lily called Nate (Chace Crawford) who had spent the last three months devising a plan to revive his newspaper The Spectator. Shocked by the news, he rounded up the rest of the friends and initiated a mission to find S and bring her home. After a major negotiation with Gossip Girl herself, Nate was able to lead everyone to Serena (or should we say Sabrina?) in Poughkeepsie where she had created a new life with a new beau (all in a few months???). If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Jersey Shore

Can you believe the LAST SEASON of Jersey Shore kicks off tonight (10pm EST, y'all!)? We gueeeess it makes sense since Snooki is a mom now and JWOWW is getting married soon, but MEHHHHHH. We had really gotten used to our seasonal fix of fist-pumping. *pouts while cracking open a fresh jar of pickles* It's been a fun 5 seasons, but we suppose it's time to let everyone's favorite summer residents of Seaside Heights fly the coop and pen the next chapters of their respective books. We can't wait for Season 6 to officially get underway (again, the episode premieres at 10pm EST - DON'T FORGET!), but you better believe we're going to milk these final moments for everything they're worth.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber's love affair with leather is a story we know all too well, and the latest chapter was penned last night during his performance on ABC's Dancing With The Stars. The teen titan took to the DWTS stage for the show's 2-hour results premiere to perform a heavily-choreographed performance of his hit single "As Long As You Love Me.". Who of sound mind would perform a high-energy dance routine suited up in all-leather? Apparently Justin Bieber. But rest assured, he (and/or stylist Ryan Good) built in mechanisms for keeping cool.

Whew, it looks like another Jersey Shore girl is about to get hitched! Following Snooki's engagement earlier this year (and the stylish arrival of her baby boy!), her fellow castmate/BFF JWOWW is also joining the bride-to-be clan by announcing exclusively to In Touch that she's marrying her boyfriend of two years, Roger Mathews. All together now: Awwww! While we're SUPER happy for the Shore girl, we need to cut to the chase—what does the ring look like?! From what we can see, um, that's one GIANT rock. JWOWW told In Touch, "Roger's not an average-looking guy, he's huge: his personality, his size [6'4"]. So I always said, 'I want my ring like you—big! The bigger the better!'" Well, boy certainly delivered. *claps*

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
