Thanks to a slip from Kelly Rutherford, we already know which male Gossip Girl character will be revealed as gay in an upcoming episode.
The fact that it's Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) is not too shocking, given that of all the Gossip Girl characters pictured below, he's the only one without a steamy hookup or romance plot line so far.
But it's the way Eric is outed that is the true jaw-dropper in all of this, writes Kristin Veitch of E! Online. OMG. For the deets of this juicy Gossip Girl spoiler, you'll have to follow the jump ...Rumor has it that he will caught making out with Jenny Humphrey's new boyfriend! How's that for another kick in the gut to the girl who, as we've seen, just can't seem to catch a break?!
Interestingly, in the original Gossip Girl book series, it was Dan Humphrey who questioned his sexuality.
The TV series has no plans for any same-sex action for Dan.
Penn Badgley (Dan) said in October:
"I think [Dan] is straight-up gay in the books. But I don't think network TV really has the balls to make one of its [teenage] series regulars gay. Let's say the show builds up to become a big hit, then I think they'd maybe explore it in year three or four."
