The Gossip

Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester continue to sit on top of the heap on their fairly successful CW TV series but all of that is about to change once Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Michelle Trachtenberg joins the cast next month for a multi-episode story arc on the show. Here are a few pics of Blake and Leighton (who play Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf respectively) chatting about the imminent arrival of Michelle (as Georgina Sparks) into their lives on the show:

That's right ... the girls should have cause for concern. I can deffo see how MT will do her best to blow into town and onto the show to wreck havoc upon the poor, unsuspecting characters of Gossip Girl. I just hope that Michelle really brings it ... she can do high drama, there's no doubt, I just hope that they really let her cut loose and tear shizz up. There was a rumor going around a few weeks ago that Mischa Barton was considered for the role of Georgina Sparks but for whatever dumb reason decided to turn down the part. I got word on the d/l that Mischa's announcement that she turned down the part was a surprise to producers of the show who never even offered her the role. Apparently, Mischa's publicist, I'm told, decided to get her name in the press for a little positive publicity since she was dealing with that pesky DUI arrest and concocted the story that she turned down the role on GG. Whatever the case may be, I think MT will be a great new fit for the show. Bring on the drama ... the show is about to get really freakin' awesome. [Source]
