The Upper East Side just cleaned house! When Gossip Girl returns for its fifth season this fall, regulars Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr will not part of the elite zip code.
According to TV Guide, technically this isn’t exactly a shock. Considering Taylor played a good girl-turned-bad as Jenny Humphrey, she barely got any screen time and appeared in merely four episodes. As for Jessica? She was often the black sheep of the clique and will ride off into the sunset, or in Gossip Girl terms, she’ll go buh-bye and pursue a study abroad program overseas.
Although they ditched two regulars, the show signed on the dotted line for a promotion! Kaylee DeFer (she plays Serena’s cousin, Charlie Rhodes), will become a regular on the show this fall.
What do you think about the departures and new add-on? Will it impact the show at all or not really?
