Gossip Girl Writer to Teach Class

by at . Comments

Felicia D. Henderson writes about socialites in Manhattan, but she was born and raised in Los Angeles.

The Gossip Girl writer is featured in a recent issue of The Daily Bruin, UCLA's campus paper. Here's what the article had to say:

The Horror! For Henderson, born and raised in the L.A. area, she finds she needs to research not the latest vernacular, but New York City itself when she writes for the show.

"The biggest challenge for me is what is New York, because I am West Coast," she said. "That's where my research comes in."

Not only is Henderson a UCLA alumna, but she was recently named the Zakin-Hunter professor of screenwriting, the only endowed chair in the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television's screenwriting program.

While Henderson has spent much of her career behind the scenes of a number of high-profile television shows, her new position in the classroom is very much a homecoming of sorts. Henderson received her bachelor's degree and master of fine arts degree at UCLA and is currently pursuing her doctorate here.

In addition to her upcoming teaching position, she has endowed several scholarships on campus.

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
