The true identity of Gossip Girl, the xoxo'ing, blogging, rumor monger of the same-titled CW series, has long been a burning question. Until today's bombshell. The Daily News has apparently gotten a hold of the info. Find out after the jump. Spoiler Alert, obviously.

It's none other than Serena's twinky younger brother, Eric van der Woodsen. OMG, Gossip Girl is a dude??? Well, sort of a dude. Gossip Girl is at least biologically male. Even though the voiceover narration is, uh, a girl (Kristen Bell). Isn't that weird? Gossip read by women, reported by gay men. Shocking! I bet this means that Chace "Nate" Crawford is Miss Manners.
