Blue Bloods First Look Video: What Is Frank's Secret Tie to a Gossip Girl Vet?

“Spotted: Gossip Girl‘s Mama Waldorf cozying up to Blue Bloods top cop Frank Reagan. An arresting development, wouldn’t you say?” — and TVLine has a first look at the flirty encounter.

As we first reported, Margaret Colin, who plays Blair’s mother Eleanor on Gossip Girl, is guesting on the CBS drama (this Friday at 10/9c) as Melanie Maines, a high-profile cable news reporter who “meets” Frank (played by Tom Selleck) at a New York City event. We quickly learn, however, they are anything but strangers. Alas, not long after reuniting, Melanie will get pulled into Frank’s professional life, when she is the target of an assault.

But until then, there are fun, flirty moments like this one, where we see how close the two are — meaning, she knows the commish’s very specific drink order.

    Margaret Colin also played Tom Selleck’s girlfriend in 3 Men and a Baby in 1987.

    • Matt says:

      If Margaret Colin is guest starring, will turns by Ted Danson, Steve Guttenberg and/or Nancy Travis not be too far behind?

    Two of my favorite soap vets! They’ve stayed busy long after there stops in Oakdale and Genoa City!

  3. Brenda says:

    She also guested on “Magnum P.I.” in a hilarious episode fashioned after “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. Tom Selleck was the original choice for Indiana Jones.

    What happened to Andrea Roth’s character?

    And, what’s with Frank’s attraction to reporters? Isn’t that inherently dangerous for the Chief of Police?

    Margaret Colins is perfect on Blue Bloods…sassy, independent, beautiful, intelligent. She’s one of my favorite actresses. And… she lives right in my township of Montclair NJ

    Would LOVE to see “Melanie” have a recurring role on Blue Bloods. “Frank” needs to have some sort of personal life and Margaret Colin is PERFECT. She really fits that role the way it is written. Love her!! Please keep her. : )

    Love the “Commish”..Never miss an episode,but can’t really get into Frank doing the horizontal mambo with a woman on Blue Bloods…Dating and flirting but not written seriously into what works beautifully with this family….
