Taylor Momsen Kicked Off ‘Gossip Girl’

The Superficial / November 23, 2010

Seen here presumably filming her last episode, unbeknownst to her, Taylor Momsen has been placed on an “indefinite hiatus” (Read: Shitcanned.) from Gossip Girl which probably has a whole lot to do with this, this and this. Plus that face she’s making. Deadline Hollywood reports:

Although reps for The CW and producer Warner Bros. declined to comment, sources confirm that Momsen’s Jenny will be MIA for at least four episodes beginning with the show’s midseason finale on Dec. 6. The news comes as the 17-year-old Pretty Reckless singer’s off-screen antics continue to raise eyebrows.
Besides her barely-there wardrobe and expletive-laced tirades against peers such as Miley Cyrus, Momsen pissed off Project Runway’s Tim Gunn who played mentor to ‘Jenny” in an episode that aired last month. Gunn blasted Momsen for her lack of professionalism on the set. “What a diva,” he told E! News. “She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself, ‘Why are we being held hostage by this brat?'”

What’s hilarious about all this is Taylor Momsen is basing her diva behavior on playing Cindy Lou Who in the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch. You know, the one most people change the channel on because the original is timeless and should’ve been left alone. But, regardless, you don’t see Blake Lively and Leighton Meester acting like divas, and those two have the breasts and asses of Greek goddesses so it’d be entirely justified.

P.A.: Blake Lively won’t come out of her trailer until we build her a rickshaw out of croissants that were physically baked in Paris.
DIRECTOR: Her breasts are awesome…
P.A.: That’s not really an answer.
DIRECTOR: So, so awesome…
P.A.: I guess we’ll start building.
DIRECTOR: *squeezes the air*
