The Cue: Gossip Girl
After the life-altering moment that happens to Serena van der Woodsen when she gets framed by Georgina and gets drugged, everyone in school sees her as a troublemaker and an emotionally unstable person. And although it seems like the whole world is against her, Blair never leaves Serena’s side. She stands by Serena and doesn’t trade her for popularity or backstabbing friends.
The Code: Stand by your girl.
When your friend has some rough issues to deal with, let her know that you’re there for her. It doesn’t mean you have to side with her when she and her mom have a fight. It means you have to let her know she’s got someone to lean on.
Gossip runs faster than Matteo’s go-kart, so when an issue hits you concerning your friend, talk to her first before stepping on the gas. It’s better to steer clear of it yourself and let her know first, rather than battle those nasty rumors alone.
