"It felt like we were in the center of a marketing machine, a cultural pop phenomenon," she admitted to Vanity Fair. "We were creating three episodes at once sometimes, we were given our lines at the very last minute, we didn''t know where our characters were going there was no planning or almost felt like a sketch show. We were basically sort of reading off of cue cards. There were people taking pictures the whole time and paparazzi jumping in front of the cameras it felt like we were part of a cultural was something neat about that."
5. The Two Girls Couldn''t Have Been Any More Different: "Blake is very much in the moment. Blake knows what''s happening. She knows this movie''s coming out, this band is happening ," Safran recalled.

We can''t put it in writing, but we promise you can go.'' So that''s why I said, ''OK. You know what? I''ll do this.''"
There is a mean streak in her though, in the majority of Season One Jenny Humphrey acts as her slave and she bosses her minions around just as much until they all finally turn against her. As she wins them back she treats them exactly the same again, not learning from her mistakes which is a surprise for Blair. She may always seem that she is on top, but underneath she is insecure about her social status. This anxiety creates flaws in her character causing her to lash out and hurt others.
