Olsen follows up her stint on Showtime's Weeds with an appearance on Christina Applegate's ABC hit, playing a bad girl who reminds Samantha of her former self. "She showed up alone, ready to work, is great on set and is serious about the job," Executive Producer Don Todd told People in June. "This is a girl who's been in front of the camera almost literally her entire life. She's smart, and she knows what she's doing."

"Everyone is wondering 'What's she doing?' when they see photos of Lindsay on the set," says actor Mark Indelicato, who plays Betty's little brother Justin. "She plays Betty's high school nemesis, as you saw in the finale, and now she's working at a burger joint. It's so cool that she plays the most unglamorous part ever!"

Known as a boldface name in New York City, socialite Tinsley Mortimer attempts to make herself a household name with an appearance as herself on the Season 2 premiere of Gossip Girl. At a white party in the Hamptons, Mortimer-who has designed handbags for Samantha Thavasa and recently launched her own line, Riccimie by Tinsley Mortimer-gives Jenny a much-needed compliment about her fashion sense.
