Last night Gawker writer Richard Lawson posted about "overhearing" news of Mischa Barton being offered a recurring role on Gossip Girl (the better done, East coast version of the O.C.) Shit! Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. SHIT! One of the main reasons I fell in love with Gossip Girl in the beginning (besides the sex scene in the back kitchen at Gilt, the devirginization scene in the limo after a night at the Box, and the dramatization of Marquee), was that Mischa Barton WASN'T in it! If this rumor proves to be true, the show will loose some DRAMATIC points. This is an official plea to the CW: please come back in all your glory, and if you feel that you MUST include Mischa (for the irony reasoning), keep it to a couple scenes in ONE episode. Thanks. Oh, and keep her away from Taylor Momsen!
