Gossip Girl Insiders Swear: Taylor Momsen is Staying Put!

by at .

Taylor Momsen has been largely absent from this season of Gossip Girl, her off-the-set antics are increasingly out of control, and news just broke of her "indefinite hiatus."

One would be forgiven for assuming this was the beginning of the end for her on the CW series, but insiders say not to read too much into it. A hiatus is just ... a hiatus.

Taylor "isn't going anywhere" and her behavior issues are "nothing new," sources tell E! News, noting that Gothic Barbie remains a big part of the show's future plans.

Just not in every episode.

BAD SEED: Taylor/Jenny may be one at times, but she's sticking around.

Insiders insist Taylor's absence (she's only appeared in three episodes so far this season) has been largely a creative decision and that both sides are content with that.

"Jenny Humphrey isn't in college like everyone else, so it's often hard to weave her into the central story lines," says a source. "We don't want to just bring her in to hang out at the breakfast table with Lily and Rufus and say a line or two."

"We want a reason to have her there."

Moreover, Taylor is happy to have the time off to work on her music career as The Pretty Reckless' singer instead of hanging around all day on set for that line or two.

As for the diva rumors, sources tell me Taylor's behavior is nothing new. She's been "standing up for what she believes is right" (that's putting it nicely) since day one.

Tim Gunn aside, it doesn't look like anyone has beef with her, either. "Everyone likes her," says a source. "Her absence is driven by story. Anything else is speculative."

Well, that's good. Right? Tell us: When it comes to T-Moms ...

    My goodness.

    She's such a wonderful actress, but somebody tell her the skanky bra trend was out from day 1. And for the love of God, please make her WASH OFF THE EYE MAKEUP. She looks like a bloody raccoon!

    I do hope Jenny stays, though. I guess I can understand their decision to leave her out for a bit due to the college storylines, but when she does come back, hopefully they give a her a realistic reason to do so...unlike previous events...
