I’ve been reading about these Gossip Girl widgets from cwtv.com. I haven’t found them yet… are they really already up or am I just missing the obvious?

Anyway, I’m back from my trip to Hong Kong! Guess what?

The CW network is orchestrating “Gossip Girl” viewing parties at 20 sororities around the county.

The CW is creating “Gossip Girl” widgets that will play clips from the show and run real-life gossip news via an RSS feed supplied by People.com. The widgets will be available on and in CW banner ads through other sites.

In addition, CW has created a virtual replica of Manhattan’s Upper East Side for “Gossip Girl” that allows viewers to create avatars and become virtual residents visiting the same New York locations the series’ characters frequent. Fans also can use clips from the series to create their own “Gossip Girl” music videos, which can include personal pictures and videos and be distributed through mobile devices.
