Rhett and Scarlett... Chuck and Blair

Even though this is not where the intermission is in the movie, I am going to take some time to relate two of our main characters to a modern day fictional couple - this might help some of you identify with them more, and maybe even respect or appreciate them.

I feel that Chuck and Blaire from "Gossip Girl" could very well be modelled on our very own Rhett and Scarlett. Both are shrewd, selfish and destructive in their own way, which is exactly like Scarlett and Rhett. They do not stop until they get what they want. Also alike is their relationship. Neither of them can really stand the other, and yet they are drawn together through their similarities. Really, both are wildly in love with the other, but are too proud and stubborn to say it. Sound like anyone we know??

  1. It’s been a long time since this was posted. But I agree 100% the similarities are spot on.

    Both extremely flawed and selfish.

    At the beginning of the show, Blair’s infatuation with Nate, reminded me of Scarlett’s infatuation with Ashley. They don’t really love them, but their idea of them.

    golden boy=southern gentleman

    Also both of them always wanting their mother’s approval Evelyn=Ellen
