The television show Gossip Girl is not all teenage sex in limousines, classy drinking at posh hotel bars, fashion internships with elite designers, and xoxo-ing.

Behind the scenes, a complex machine is at work, where diva personalities are “managed,” drug abuse is “handled,” and eating disorders are ignored. (No quotation marks on that one.)

And while the tense relationship between Leighton Meester (Blair) and Blake Lively (Serena) is played out in the press like their fictional frenemy relationship on the show’s Gossip Girl blog, almost entirely ignored is the backstage backstabbing going on among the guys.
