Nobody gives good love triangle like Gossip Girl. It’s one of the biggest reasons the show has made it to a whopping 100 episodes, which the cast celebrated this weekend in (where else?) NYC. And E! News was on hand to dish with Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively and the rest of the cast.
So do the show’s über-popular duo Chuck and Blair still stand a chance? What about Dan and Blair? And which guy is Blair’s “soul mate?” Penn’s answer may surprise you…
“I think they will always have feelings for each other in a certain capacity,” Penn says of Dan and Blair. “I can’t really say where it is going to go, nor do I know even because they have had plans for them since the beginning, only in the sense that they are a certain intellectual match for one another and I think Dan is unfortunate in that he loves Blair and I think Blair is his soul mate but he is not Blair’s soul mate, because Blair and Chuck belong with each other obviously. I think that the fans all love Chuck and Blair together, but you know, maybe you’re wrong.”
So is Badgley bummed that Dan’s not Blair’s soul mate? “Well, that is my personal opinion, but my opinions are biased.” Still, he says, “They are an intellectual match for one another and even though it’s not physical, it’s this completely heady thing, which I think is fun because it’s a show with heady campy dialogue. I think they fit together well in that sense that they don’t fit together and all they do is bicker. I think that’s fun for people to watch.”
While Meester and Westwick were tight-lipped about the love triangle and what’s ahead for the show’s most popular couple, Chuck and Blair, Westwick says Chuck is still “very much” in love with Blair.
Though Westwick tells us he has “no idea” what the future holds for “Chair,” he, like many fans, personally hopes they find their way back to each other. “Yeah, I like kissing Leighton,” he says. “She’s so great. Leighton is gorgeous. I like working with her. She’s very talented and she’s fantastic to work with. Sure, why not?”
As for Nate’s love life on the show, Chace Crawford revealed a possible spoiler when he told us,” Hey, I love Ivy/Charlie and I love Kaylee DeFer, but where’s Elizabeth Hurley? Bring her back! It’s been great!” Hmmm…So where does Ms. Diana Payne head off to? The mind reels…
Any true Gossip Girl fan savors moments when the original five, Blake Lively, Badgley, Meester, Westwick and Crawford, all get to be in scenes together as it doesn’t happen too often, so we were thrilled when Lively dropped this nugget of info: “We just shot a scene yesterday with the original five of us and it was amazing to all be together and still feel like the same weirdos!”
