We all remember Gossip Girl, the show about rich prep school kids in New York City based on a book about rich prep school kids in New York City that made you wish more than anything in the world that you were a rich prep school kid in New York City. For five full years, Gossip Girl was there to teach us witty comebacks and give us unrealistic expectations of what a high school sophomore should look like. Ever since the show went off the air in 2012, we’ve been just waiting for the day when the cast would say “We’re out of money and ready to do a reunion.” And while we haven’t seen Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass) or Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald) since they walked off set for the last day of shooting (if anyone has seen them, btw, please contact the authorities. Their families miss them very much), other GG cast members have like, lives and careers and shit that might preclude them from diving back into the series that made them famous.
Because, let’s face it, without Gossip Girl you’d have literally no idea who Taylor Momsen is, and you’d think Leighton Meester was just some store at the mall.
Blake Lively, on the other hand, has managed to maintain a career and a life post-Gossip Girl. Getting married and having babies and shit. Making her the least likely to return and reprise her role as Serena van der Woodsen, despite the fact that starring in the film The Age Of Adaline hardly counts as a thriving acting career.
Lucky for us Gossip Girl fans, Blake Lively told Variety that she’s at least moderately DTPSVDWA—Down To Play Serena Van Der Woodsen Again—provided that she can work it in with the aforementioned “husband and babies and shit.” I think I speak for literally everyone when I say, “If Blake Lively needs a babysitter, I volunteer as tribute.”
“It sort of all depends,”
Serena Blake said, “Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much. But I’ve learned in life you never say never. I’m looking to do something I haven’t done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows? If it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.”
This sounds like a pretty soft no until you discover that “I’m looking to do something I haven’t done yet, not something I did” are the exact words you said last weekend before booty calling your ex. So what I’m saying is, there’s hope. Though, who can predict what Blake Lively will do? The woman named her daughters “James” and “Ines,” for Christ sake.
