Taylor Momsen, Jessica Szohr dropped as 'Gossip Girl' regulars
OK. Not really. But a source close to the show did confirm that Taylor Momsen (Jenny) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa) will not be returning to “Gossip Girl” as series regulars.
The news is hardly shocking. It’s no secret that the eyeliner-addicted Momsen has made her rock band Pretty Reckless her main focus. And Szohr hasn’t been involved in any major plotlines for a while -- plus, her character recently revealed that she was leaving town to study abroad (always the perfect solution for getting rid of a character).
But the rest of the GG gang -- Blake, Leighton, Chase, Ed and Penn -- remains intact. And Kaylee DeFer, who plays Serena’s cousin Charlie, has been promoted to series regular.
ShowTrackers, are you sad to see Jenny and Vanessa go or sad that it took so long for them to be dropped? Will you continue to tune in?
