Taylor Momsen Leaves “Gossip Girl”
The rumors about "Gossip Girl" are true: Taylor Momsen is OUT as a series regular.
In November, it was reported that she had been suspended from the show; CW countered that she was a regular, with a reduced role because of "creative reasons."
Just recently 17-years old, Momsen has performed in provocative, pant-less outfits and thigh high stockings; her "Makes Me Want To Die," music video raised controversy for the then 16 year-old's skimpy wardrobe and suggestive behavior. She's performed live in the same fashion, including flashing crowds.
Szohr, who played Vanessa Abrams, had a reduced role in season four, as well; she has a budding indie film career. Both stars will have the opportunity make guest appearances on the show going forward.
