Ivanka Trump Has ‘A Thing’ for Gossip Girl‘s Chuck Bass

09/21/2009 at 12:00 AM EDT

On the season 3 premiere of Gossip Girl, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) gave Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) some advice on dating on the Upper East Side.

"Sleeping with the enemy is hot," he said, advising Nate to call Bree Buckley, played by Joanna Garcia, whose family are rivals to the Archibalds. "Why do you think I have the whole Ivanka thing?"

Well, it turns out Ivanka Trump has a thing of her own for Chuck Bass.

"Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure. I'm addicted to it!" the real-life socialite and daughter to Donald Trump tells PEOPLE. "I have to confess I have a 'thing' for Chuck Bass myself."

But what does Ivanka, who is engaged to New York City publisher Jared Kushner, think of Chuck's line? "Despite the tawdry implications," she says, "having your television crush reciprocate is definitely flattering."

Gossip Girl airs Mondays (9 p.m. EST) on the CW.
