Vanessa Abrams is a young, beautiful artist who remains an outcast among a cluster of New York's most elite, wealthy teens. Her best friend is Dan Humphrey, who is from a similar middle-class background. She works at a coffee shop in Brooklyn and has a history with Dan that has not been fully revealed yet, but was evident in the tension between herself and Serena van der Woodsen at the time Serena began to date Dan. Towards the end of the first season of Gossip Girl, Vanessa developed a romance of her own with Nate Archibald, although that fizzled before it really got going. We can't wait to see what's next for Vanessa in Season 2!
Nate: They're obviously just trying to scare us to get me to rat out my Dad.
Vanessa: You do know where he is, right?
Nate: Yeah but... I couldn't. Not even after what he's done.
Vanessa: Just had to put it out there... But I promise if worse comes to worse, my sister and I can give your mom pointers on how to do more with less.

[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.Blair
