Gossip Girl Spoilers: Vanessa Leaving Town?!

by at . Comments

There's craziness coming our way as the third Gossip Girl season winds down, and aside from whether Chair and Serenate end up together, we may say goodbye to a familiar face.

Or two.

On the heels of the news that the meddling Jenny may be leaving the Upper East Side this season, it looks like another female regular will be heading off into the sunset.

The question is whether anyone minds - or wants her to come back.

According to reports, Vanessa will be leaving not only New York but the country before the end of the season, running off to accept a very fancy, far away job with CNN.

Jessica Szohr is the second female, along with Taylor Momsen's MIA Little J, to depart New York City - however both ladies will still be listed as series regulars next fall.

As for what Little J will do that leads to her departure, word has it "it's a culmination of lots of things Jenny does to multiple people." That doesn't sound good at all.

In the short term, don't expect Serena to continue to sit idly by now that she knows Jenny tried to hone in on Nate. The two are headed for some rough times ahead.

What do you think drives J out of town - and are you excited to be rid of Vanessa, albeit temporarily? Should she even come back? Sound off below!

Jenny: I'm ok with her being gone. Although I don't really like her character that much (she can be soo very selfish & immature), often times her story line has been the most entertaining-- I mean esp compared to say Nate. I will miss her. V: I really like her. I actually she is one of the few characters that actually keeps it a little more grounded, realistic, and NY. Think about it-- NY is one of the most diverse cities in the entire US and once you remove her there is not one person of color/minority character on a show based in NY. Granted I get that GG is about the UES and that's not the most diverse area... but come on, not one non-white character. In fact, the only non WASP character is Cyrus (& Aaron Rose). They did do away w/ the token minorities (Blair's minions the first season). Look writers, I'm not making an appeal for tokenization or anything, but the fact you haven't even touched this issue is quite disappointing considering you've been so cutting edge/up to date on all other fronts(fashion, music, etc). Anyways, best to these actresses and the future of their careers.

As I said with Jenny, she's not my favorite but these characters leaving isn't a good sign. And as much as you don't like them they have become main cast. Even if they are boring or bitchy, it won't be the same without Jenny and Vanessa there. Once main characters start leaving the show is over. I'm pretty sure Season 4 will be the last.

wow the writers and producers do listen and read blogs! good riddance vanessa and little j! their scenes are the most boring and useless. vanessa's storylines doesn't tie in with the rest...

Why would she still be listed as a series regular when she's in a different country? That's confusing. And without Jenny and Vanessa, the show is going to feel pretty empty. I hope they introduce new regulars. Good riddance to Vanessa, she was becoming kind of irrelevant.

Alexander, that's because Jenny Humphrey is the "It" girl. She has a new storyline away from Gossip Girl but it just hasn't been brought up yet as far as I'm concerned. There's also another one that the author wrote about called "The Carlye's" but I haven't gotten into yet.

I am telling you. Jenny is going to do some fucked up shit, pull a Serena from first season and go to boarding school, and then come back, and it will be a huge controversy.

What Hn said... she said it better than I ever could.

Actually, this may be a really good thing for the show. Although I dislike Vanessa's character throughout all the seasons and I want her to go just as badly as everyone else, I believe there is reasoning behind her much needed departure and I'll be happy to explain rather than just say "she sucks as a character" so that my opinion is voiced for Josh and Stephanie to see. First, I don't think she's been given horrible story lines at all. She's hooked up with Nate and had a really good thing going on with him in the first and second season so I don't believe all that talk about her having a bad storyline is fault. What I do see and have noticed since season 1 is that she is just a really bad actress. Her voice is monotone and when she speaks, it sounds like someone is scratching the chalkboard because it's just that, screechy and cracky. Also, for anyone saying she's irrelevant, I don't think that's true. She's been given three seasons for us to change our minds about her but it still hasn't happened even after her storyline with the threesome, sleeping with Chuck, hooking up with Nate, bringing Blair down, and falling for Scott. Josh, 99% of the show still dislikes her so I don't understand why you have kept her around. Yes, I like drama... but please.. give me someone that can act. It truly aggravates me when I have to watch her scenes because then I'll have to FF and when I fast forward, I go too far! Then I'll have to go back and rewind what I missed and then when I rewind too much and it goes to her scenes!! This is no good Josh. You probably don't care but I've been a loyal fan since season 1. Season 1!! You gotta give a little when I give a lot Josh. That's all I ask of you. It will truly be a mistake if you bring her to season 4.

Without Vanessa around, where does that leave Dan? His character is often useless in the show this season. It feels like the two of them have been on their own series seperate from the rest of GG. So excited that there is going to be tension between Serena and Jenny. I really dislike Jenny's character as she has no reason to be such a complete screw up. I also can't stand Taylor Momsen's acting, the shift eyes thing she does every 2.5 seconds when she's supposedly "frustrated" or trying to seem "innocent" annoys me to no end. She needs to get slapped out, hopefully by Serena, then Blair.
