Sure, Blair Waldorf is the Queen B at Gossip Girl’s Constance Billard, but she isn’t the first A-list celebriteen. She’s not even the first most popular Blair. That’s right, before Blair Waldorf there was Blair Warner from The Facts of Life. Both of them are beautiful and popular, but it’s definitely gotten more difficult over the years. After the jump, I’ve provided a thoroughly-researched side-by-side comparison of instructions on what it takes to be Blair Warner and Blair Waldorf from their respective WikiHow pages. It’s funny to see that the more things change, the more they stay really sad as aspirational role models for women!
Neither of these lists of instructions seem to include steps for how to deal with the crushing sadness that accompanies going on the internet to find out how to be more like a television character, but it’s a Wiki so it’s only a matter of time before someone adds that in.
