There’s nothing worse for a gossip girl than to lose her buzz-worthiness.

But that seems to be the case for the proposed spinoff of ‘Gossip Girl.’

“The show went from hot, to lukewarm, to ‘fading but wouldn’t count out,’ to now dead,” according to Nikki Finke in her primetime pilot watch. The ‘Melrose Place‘ update is reportedly still a go, however.

The much-gossiped about May 11th episode was to serve as the launch of the spinoff series, which was to star Brittany Snow as the young Lily van der Woodsen (Serena’s mother) and focus on her wild child days and her budding romance with a young Rufus Humphrey (Dan’s father).

Fancast has a preview of the episode, now simply a flashback, which also features a performance by Gwen Stefani and No Doubt.
