Gossip Girl No Longer in the Taylor Momsen Business

The television landscape has been altered inexorably today, with news that makeup-forward shock starlet Taylor Momsen will not be returning to Gossip Girl next season. The precocious actress, who is 17-going-on-undead, was rumored to have been suspended from the show last November for bad behavior. TVLine reports that producers have now chosen to officially "part ways" with both Momsen and co-star Jessica Szohr, who plays Vanessa Abrams.

HOWEVER. That doesn't mean you've seen the last of them, as a source hints they may be invited back for select episodes on "a guest star basis."

Momsen-watchers now expect her to devote more time to pantyless collaborations with her rock band, The Pretty Reckless. A signature line of heavy-duty eye shadows, including "Punched By a Bad-Boy Plum" and "Overdose Orange," shouldn't be too far behind. [TVLine, photo via Bauer Griffin]
