At least as of this posting, we've heard of no plans to have any new Gossip Girl characters come out of the closet this fall.
Sources report that Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) will have a love interest or two in the second season of Gossip Girl.
Eric should be it for same-sex love, though if the book series is any indication, Gossip Girl could get even more gay with each season.
According to cast member Penn Badgley: "By the end of the series, I think they got so bored writing the same things for 12 years, they were like, 'Let's just make 'em all gay.' Chuck ends up gay and has a monkey on his shoulder that dresses in similar outfits."
Penn is just kidding... we think.
