Chace Crawford Celebrates 24th Birthday


Chace Crawford may be PEOPLE's Hottest Bachelor – but he still has close ties to his old friends, who helped him celebrate his birthday over the weekend.

The Gossip Girl star flew 15 high school and college pals from Dallas to New York to celebrate his 24th birthday – which was Saturday – along with his new friends, such as costar Sebastian Stan and actor Toby Hemingway.

"His hometown friends got along great with all his New York city pals," a source tells PEOPLE.

The whole gang then flew on V1 jets from the city out to Watermill, New York, where they stayed at some private digs for the weekend-long birthday bash. "It was the best birthday Chace ever had because he was amongst his closest friends," says the source.

The group barbequed, ate, drank and were treated to meals cooked by a private chef, according to the source. They also played games and went swimming. But it wasn't all chilling on the sand: To raise the excitement level, they chartered a speedboat and went out in kayaks.

And in honor of Crawford's birthday on Saturday, "They, of course, sang 'Happy Birthday,' " says the source.

Chris Brown -- No Plea Yet

I really don't want to waste my time saying what many others said today about the whole Chris Brown situation. Obviously Chris want to postpone his court drama so he can work out a deal, which will allow him to walk out as a free punk.

Here is how TMZ.com summed it up. Video and quote are courtesy of TMZ.com.

Based on our information, it seems Brown wants to avoid a trial at all costs because the picture of Rihanna taken one day after the incident -- which has not been seen anywhere publicly -- is unbelievable.

During the proceeding, Brown signed a waiver of presence, allowing his lawyer to act on his behalf -- meaning he won't have to show up to any minor court proceedings before April 6th.

Brown, who stood emotionless in court, spoke only four words to the judge -- "yes," "yes," and "yes ma'am."

After Brown's request to continue the case had been granted, the judge warned Brown, "You are not to annoy, harass, molest, threaten or use force or violence against anyone."

The judge asked Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra if there was a "no-contact order" in place, to which Etra replied, "Miss Fenty [Rihanna] does not request such an order."

Etra is famous for repping Snoop Dogg in multiple court cases throughout the years.

GL - Thoughts on the February 23 episode.

The February 23rd, 2009 episode of CBS' Guiding Light was so horrible that I had to re-watched it and comment on it.

At Coop's funeral, we see everyone arguing with Alan because he showed up knowing damn well he's not wanted there. Then the stupidity begun - Phillip thinking he can shut them all up, he pulls out a gun from a cop's waist and fires it. First of all, I wasn't born on planet stupid. How in the world did the gun came out so easy? Aren't cop's gun locked with something when they are carrying it on their waist? Did I mentioned that was the lamest gun shot I've ever heard? And why did the cop fell on his butt? You mean to tell me you can pull a gun out from someones waist and they will FALL? Phillip didn't even pushed the cop so that didn't make sense. Another reason why I think the GL production team are all on crack! How can you get out of jail? Phillip said he made a "deal" to get out for one day. Is that possible? Thank God I don't live in Springfield!

Why on earth would you let someone interrupt your son's funeral? I cannot believe Buzz is letting Phillip explaining why he went insane. This is your son's FUNERAL!!! The GL writing team is BEYOND pathetic! Couldn't they write a decent funeral? They just had to bring in a lunatic to make it look "dramatic?"

What is up with Lizzie vacationing next to all those coffins? I couldn't help but to think that the two open coffins will be GL and Ellen Wheeler in there when April comes. Meaning, the show will be cancelled and Ellen and her hooligans will be unemployed. Of course we all know who will be responsible for that! I am sick and tired of those stupid background musics!! If you can't afford real music, don't play any at all. People often said how Passions was a horrible soap and the writing was just a mess. As a Passions fan, I can tell you Passions was way better than GL is right now. No matter how shitty the writing was, I kept tuning in because I was glued to the show. With GL's writing, everything suck. There is no real drama, no romance, no nothing. There is nothing but TRASH! No wonder I'm only tuning in whenever I want to.

Ashlee confessing to Daisy that she has a crush on Grady was so random. LOL! I refuse to waste my time and comment on the other stupidity that took place this week on GL. It's a shame I have to watch a show I love go down the gutter. Shame on CBS, P&G, Ellen Wheeler and company. If it were up to me, the first thing I would do, FIRE all those writers. You call them writers? I call them hacks! I'm also tired of those jumping cameras. No wonder GL does better in California than it does in New York. We're just not used to having earthquakes! It would have been better if we didn't see what were in those boxes when everyone was leaving Company. Some of the stuff looked like junk you would see on the streets of Newark, NJ.

On a positive note, I would like to congratulate Justin Deas(Buzz) and Beth Chamberlin(Beth) on their excellent acting. Both has been putting energy into GL for weeks now. Thanks guys! It's a shame Kim Zimmer is on once in a blue moon. I'm loving the epic love story between Olivia and Natalia. I just cannot get enough of these two. Honestly, I've never seen a love story written like this on any soaps(I watch British soaps too) before. Whoever is writing for Olivia and Natalia, they should try and see if they can write for others too. Every GL fan know they are two different writing teams writing show the. I'm pretty sure the only reason why I enjoyed last week's show was because Jill Lorie Hurst wrote it. What we saw on Monday was so David Kreizman. As a matter of fact, GL was horrible this week.

Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together!

TMZ.com and People.com are both reporting that Rihanna and Chris Brown are indeed back together. A source close to the couple tells PEOPLE "They're together again. They care for each other," says the source. The on-again couple are currently spending time together at one of Sean "Diddy" Combs's homes." The source went on to say Chris is sadden by what took place between him and Rihanna but he's thrilled to be back with the woman he loves.

Lester Cohen / WireImage

In case some of you forgot what went down between the couple, here is a picture to refresh your memory. In my opinion, this will not look good in the public's eye at all. Not only is it sad that Rhianna decided to take Chris back after he brutally assaulted her; it will make a horrible example for those young girls(some of whom may be fans of her) feels like there is nothing you can do if your partner is abusing you. It also looks like Chris will be a free man. I just cannot see the L.A. County D.A. pressing charges against Chris when the evidence wasn't good enough, and now that they are back together. What if she has to testify against him? Will she lie to protect the "love" of her life? This story is beginning to sound like one of those forbidden love story that you will see on a soap opera. By some miracle, I hope Chris is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Not only that, but I hope(I'm sure you're all with me on this one) that he never, ever dares to assault another person again. Oh and him going to anger management classes, that is pure crap. He's in the public so he will try and do whatever he can to "redeem" himself. Unbelievable! I'm very disappointed by Rhianna's action but since she took him back, I hope she's happy with him. If you're being abuse or you know someone who is, please report it. There is HELP!

What do YOU think about this? Agree of disagree with me? Speak your mind! Do so by leaving a comment or two.
