Elizabeth Hurley to Guest Star on Gossip Girl

by at . Comments

Elizabeth Hurley is coming to Gossip Girl this fall.

The actress, who co-starred in NBC’s ill-fated Wonder Woman pilot, is joining the upcoming fifth season for a multi-episode story arc, according to TV Line.

Co-executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran say Hurley will play a character named Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul."

“Elizabeth Hurley’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the Gossip Girl world perfectly,” the duo added. “We feel very fortunate to have her.”

And get this:

Diana is described as "an all-around force to be reckoned with" whose entrance on the UES will "change the lives of all our characters - including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."

I'm pretty sure she's gonna be involved with Chuck!! xD What can we do? We'll still love him! ;)

I love her! Awesome news and the only bright spark on the horizon for the 'CW's Hit Show'
I am also glad they are finally addressing Gossip Girl. They just stopped the whole who is gossip girl which started at the end of season 3. A major pot hole if you ask me.

If she causes trouble for the real GG, her storyline might be interesting, otherwise I'm already bored!

i for one cant wait to see her! if she is a media mogul she might either work with serena or blair because lets face it one is an it girl and the other is about to marry a prince, or like uncle jackass said she could be dan's new boss now that he has a BIG book coming out!

I hope it's not a false rumor. She's so cool and gorge!

As long as she doesn't end up in bed with Dan, Nate or Chuck, i'm all for her killing character...

Uncle-jackass

I wonder what plot for the 'Bedazzled' star will play on gossip girl... Will she be Dan's new boss given that it's assumed that Dan's 'inside' book was a success? Will she be Blair's prospective boss given her aspirations. Will she be targeting Blair given her wedding vows to a prospective Prince? All that can be said is that I can't wait for the next season (and hope this isn't a rumor).
