I've said it before, but I am so terribly not happy with Leighton leaving Gossip Girl after next season. I don't know if the show will go on without her, but as much as Blake Lively is stunningly gorgeous it won't be enough to continue without Blair Waldorf's clever comebacks and upper east side style.
As popular as the show is on tumblr and blogger, the amount of other watchers has been declining quickly. Maybe Leighton is abandoning a sinking ship, but i'll still be watching (i.e. living vicariously off of) until the end.
Gossip Girl return January 24th 2011.
