Gossip Girl Under the Paley Moonlight

Gossip Girl Under the Paley Moonlight

The hotties of Gossip Girl make an appearance at The Paley Center for Media’s 25th Annual William S Paley Television Festival in Hollywood on Saturday. Blake Lively (in Smythe), Leighton Meester (in Julie Haus), Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr all made appearances.

Here are some tidbits from the Gossip Girl panel via TV Guide:

– Blair (Leighton Meester) will be down one sidekick when the show returns next month. [Creator Josh] Schwartz revealed that Nan Zhang (Kati) enrolled at Brown University during the strike – and didn’t even bother to tell anyone at the show! As a result, Nicole Fiscella (Isabel) will lead Blair’s minion march alone.

– There was lots of discussion about how, in the Gossip Girl books, Chuck (Ed Westwick) was gay and had a pet monkey. Said discussion ended with someone on the panel (I forget who) concluding that the “monkey turned him gay.”

Jessica Szohr landed the role of Vanessa simply by crashing a barbecue Schwartz hosted. Schwartz recalled opening his door, seeing Szohr for the first time and shouting, “It’s Vanessa!”

– SPOILER: Schwartz/Savage teased that this season’s final five episodes will build toward a wedding – but not necessarily the one we’re expecting (i.e. Lily and Bart).

  • DeeJay

    Maybe it’s Blair’s mom and that new guy she is seeing. Or something cooler like Blair’s dad and Roman. But I do think its going to be one of the parents getting married.

  • claire

    wooooa…they are all so freakin beautiful!blake shines,leighton is cute and taylor is pretty…and the girl who plays vanessa (can’t remember her name) is freakin hot!!gorgeous eyes!

  • Rae

    They all look beautiful. Why can Blake Lively not dress up like the other girls? She’s always the most casual one there.

    I hope the wedding is not something like Lily/Bart turns into Lily/Rufus. I love Lily/Rufus bunches but that would be too soap opera.

  • tina

    Blake – best head of hair in Hollywood.

  • Brooke

    i hope blair ande chuck find each other in the up coming episodes!! evryone ims gorgeous, but im partial to leighton!! Go Blair!

  • Char

    Wedding: Lily/Rufus FTW!!!

  • Sophia

    LOL at 20-22 being the same poster! Ridiculous.

    Leighton is absolutely gorgeous. She has an elegant, natural beauty that the other girls lack. Blake is always covered head to toe in make-up and Taylor looks way beyond her years to the point where it’s almost disturbing.

    Leighton is perfection.

  • brit

    leighton is extremely beautiful
    blake is also very pretty
    taylor is going through an awkard stage + i know someone said shes a hugeee slut
    leighton takess the cake even though her outfit isn’t the cutest

  • brit

    I absolutely agree with Sophia..
    leighton is simplyy divine.

  • jodie

    they all look stunning.
    and i like what they’re wearing!
    i LOVE GG!can’t wait for season 2!

  • jodie


  • jjj

    leighton is the prettiest among the three!

  • Dani

    I think the book and the show are two totally different things.
    They are both very different.

  • ver

    All pretty but I like Leighton and Jessica’s looks more.



  • nanna

    aylor looks so beautiful on that picture
