“Gossip Girl” will go international when season four kicks off this
fall. And while we know the Upper East Siders take their drama to Paris,
we wondered what else fans could expect from Blair Waldorf and the
crew. For one, is now the right time for Chuck (Ed Westwick) to date a
new girl (Clemence Poésy)? We put that question and more to star
Leighton Meester when we visited the set of her upcoming movie “Monte
“I am a fan, which sounds ridiculous, of Chuck and Blair,” Leighton
told MTV News of the on-off couple she portrays with Westwick. “I love
their relationship, and I really love working with Ed, which is what it
probably boils down to. But yeah, I think maybe there needed to be some
sort of break in their relationship and some sort of drama,” she
continued. “Maybe it was going too well, and then there was the downward
spiral with his uncle, which was fun to play out but I hate fighting.”
Chuck won’t be the only one getting some action as Poésy’s new
character shakes things up: Former “Melrose Place” star Katie Cassidy is
set to ignite Nate’s (Chace Crawford) love life next season.
“I hope we cross paths, but it would be weird to have a completely
different dynamic [onscreen],” Meester said of Cassidy who’s also her
co-star in the upcoming “Monte Carlo.” “I mean, it would be really fun. I
think she’s coming on the show, maybe, to cause a little bit of
trouble. She might not say it, but I will. I think she’s very much
capable of that, at least in the show. I think [Nate's] a total playboy
and needs to be single and I think [Katie's character] is a bad girl, so
maybe they are good for each other, actually,” Meester said.
But what about Chuck and Blair? They can’t really be over, right?
“I think Blair has done some healing, but not entirely,” she teased.
“She definitely she has a flame burning for Chuck. Who wouldn’t?”
