kicks off with the Bass and van der Woodsen camps merging into one family over a sit-down dinner at home.
Bart announces that he is back to stay and the couple seemed excited about celebrating their family togetherness at an upcoming house-warming party.
The eldest, Sid, eventually took control of the family fortune. Today Robert is a financier in Fort Worth, Texas, while Sid, who was drawn to New York society more than his brother, splits his time between the Upper East Side and the Lone Star State. 110 on the Forbes 400 list, with an estimated net worth of .5 billion.
Sid and Lee (who is widely considered to be Sid's understudy) are ranked No. Business Dealings Chuck's father owned the New York Palace Hotel, and this season, Chuck purchased the Empire Hotel by cashing out his share in Bass Industries.
He explains that Bass Industries wants to buy and restore it according to rules laid out by Vanessa and the property owner, Horace. Chuck gets a piece of fruit thrown at him for some reason, then gets back in the limo to tell Blair the bet's off. Chuck goes back to Brooklyn and Vanessa starts to believe he isn’t as bad as she thought he was. Dan breaks in and discovers a mattress on the floor with barely any other possessions.
But Blair refuses and ups the ante with her end of the bargain. Nate's house has been seized and he's living in the dark.
Fictional Bass Family Real-Life Bass Family History Chuck is the son of the late Bart Bass and his wife, Evelyn, who died in childbirth. When Richardson died in 1959, Perry received stakes in Richardson's companies, and each of Perry's four sons (Sid, Edward, Richard, and Lee) inherited .8 million.
Ultimately, they were from worlds that were too different and Chuck Bass's reputation for loathsome activity preceded him.And we hope that it does work and work it real good.But it sort of feels like a spoiler or door-closing for future episodes.The series featured nine regular characters: It girl Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), her best friend, queen bee Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), her new love interest, loner Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), Blair's boyfriend, the golden boy Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford), Dan's little sister, freshman Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), Nate's best friend, wealthy playboy Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), Dan's best friend and ex-lover, the creative Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr), Serena's mother, socialite Lily van der Woodsen (Kelly Rutherford) and Dan's father, former rock star Rufus Humphrey (Matthew Settle), all of whom reside in the Upper East Side of Manhattan or Brooklyn.Momsen and Szohr left the series in season five, while Kaylee De Fer was added to the main cast, portraying Ivy Dickens, a con artist who pretends to be Serena's cousin Charlie Rhodes.Serena van der Woodsen comes across as down-to-earth for someone from the UES, but things, relationships (Dan, Nate) and opportunities (fashion shoots) seemed to be handed to her on a silver platter.
