Link reblogged from Gossip Girl: Célimène with 2 notes
Attention everybody! You all should really check out this article about how Arsinoe is gossiping behind my back! First she tells me that she stood up for me when people were talking about my gentleman friends, but I later found out that really she told Alceste that “[Celimene] whom you love, and pretends to love you, is, I regret to say, unworthy for you.” (enter page number). But don’t worry everybody, two can play that game. I might have mentioned to Alceste that “…Your [Arsinoe’s] prudery and bustling zeal appeared to have a very slight appeal … one should learn the art of living well before one threatens men with hell.” (enter page number).
Oh please, my dear Celimene. Do you really think I would gossip behind your back? Gossip, what an ugly word! No, my dear: I tell you everything to your pretty little face. And what I have told Alceste is merely a friend-to-friend remark: nothing personal (not everything is about you, my dear). Of course, I make some acid comments once in a while, but I regret to say that I am nothing like you: lying to a dear, virtuous man is not a habit of mine. Just process that for now :)
