It seems all of Gossip Girl’s leading ladies are sort of, well, over the show. The CW hit definitely made Leighton Meester and Blake Lively household names, but the two ladies seem to be moving in different directions with their careers.
Leighton flat out came out and said she was ready to quit GG. While promoting Country Strong, she told E! News she is quitting the show in “two more years.”
So what’s the hold-up? Well, it has to do with a little thing called a contract. "Because we're under contract," she said.
Leighton says she "obviously enjoys working on the show and living in New York," but is going to ready when the contract is over.
"It allows you to be ready for when the show's over," she said.
Then take the other massive star of the show—Blake Lively—who hasn’t mentioned she’s leaving the show, but is pretty much becoming way too big of a star for TV.
Lively is the freaking new muse for Chanel for God’s sake! Mark my words, she’ll probably be gone as soon as her contract is up too.
I think, for once, this is a good decision by these two gals. (Moreso for Blakey, but don’t tell Leighton!) Usually I think TV actresses leaving the shows that made them famous (ahem Mischa Barton) is dumb dumb dumb.
But this seems like the right decision for Serena and Blair. You have my blessing!
