Gossip Girls Getting Better? Oh Yeah
I was worried when rumors flew last month that Mischa Barton might join the cast of Gossip Girl. That would have quickly ruined my favorite show. HOWEVER, The CW has reported that the role Mischa was rumored to fill has actually been granted to Buffy The Vampire Slayer's Michelle Trachtenberg. YEAH!
While Michelle's roles have been known to fall under the category of the "goody two shoes" (Ice Princess) this one is certainly about to break the mold. She'll be playing Georgina Sparks who returns from a stint in rehab to seriously shake up the life of Serena (Blake Lively).
The fact that Blair's character has lost some of her bitchiness over the last few episodes and made the audience sympathize with her has left the door WIDE OPEN for a new nemesis to take over.
Gossip Girl will be back on the CW for a few more episodes starting in April and has already been picked up for season two.
