Like, oh my god! Okay?

So, the fabulous Perez Hilton is posting about the leaked promo poster for the highly anticipated (that's not just me, right?) Gossip Girl spin off. For those of you living in a cave, the spin off focuses on Serena VanDerWoodsen's mother, Lily. (And for those of you living in a cave, why aren't you reading my blog?! I told you all about the spin off months ago.... I know, I know, a cave, but still!)

Perez wonders whether or not this poster is just too stereotypically 80s, and I sort of have to agree. That pic, coupled with the fact that they're calling the ep Valley Girls, just leaves me a bit cold. It just seems to lack the edge that Gossip Girl is really known for, doesn't it? I mean, where's the shot of Lily in a compromising position with some random hottie? How do the producers of this show expect it to get attacked by the Parents Television Council? I mean, really, people, we've gotta set some goals here!

And the title of the episode just makes me think of Nicholas Cage. So, yes, I'm dating myself here, but really: Valley Girl?!

Your thoughts?
