Nostalgia, it’s like it never left for Gossip Girl. I mean, New York’s mayor at the time, Bloomberg, even gave the show its own day in the city - January 26th.
Tune into this week's episode as I bring you back to familiar people, music, and an interview with model, actress, and now mom, plus wellness guru, Nicole Fiscella, behind the original hit series Gossip Girl.
It was an era that over-popularized the upper echelon kids of the #UES and sensationalized the glitz and glamor of New York City to many, which is maybe why many of us loved it.
Alum Nicole, who was also known as Isabel Coates on #GossipGirl was #teamblairwaldorf all the way on the show, and so it’s no surprise her and Leighton Meester are real life bffs. But, Nicole’s journey in New York City leading up to getting booked for the show wasn’t always so glamorous as she too hit the pavement in the city (like many of us) to work towards her career in the industry. She lived all over Manhattan, and one thing is for sure, she can officially call herself a New Yorker having lived in the city for 10+ years. Yes, she even lived on the infamous #UpperEastSide, which her show made so popular indefinitely. Oh, and you won’t believe the chance encounter with Tyson Beckford she shared with me that may have catapulted her career as a model in the city. There’s also a mic drop moment when she shares the favorite pastime of the #GossipGirl cast in New York City.
