Double Take

In recent weeks we've seen a flurry of activity on the Manhanttan sets of Gossip Girl where new eps are being filmed and are scheduled to begin airing in just a couple of weeks. Michelle Trachtenberg is the new star on set as she has been signed to play the new character Georgina Sparks who rolls into town to cause trouble for Serena van der Woodsen (played by Blake Lively). We've seen Michelle and Blake on set as well as GG boys Penn Badgely, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick ... but Leighton Meester (who plays Blair Waldorf) has been curiously absent ... until now. Here are a couple pics of Leighton on the GG set this week, all by herself, lookin' very much like a young Megan Mullally:

I imagine it's not very much fun for Leighton to have to share the spotlight with Blake already so she mustn't be all too thrilled to have another hen in the house with the arrival of Michelle on the scene. Still, it looks like she's keeping a stiff upper lip and is doing her best to solider on. Bless her heart. She'll be a'ight ... after all, Megan Mullally had some bit of success with that face, Leighton should be able to squeeze a bit more fame out of it as well. [Source]
