Gossip Girl's Identity Revealed in Series Finale!

Originally posted 12/18/2012 09:20AM

Did you figure it out?

The series finale of Gossip Girl, which aired Monday on the CW, had it all: two weddings (Blair marries Chuck; Serena marries Dan), two stunning wedding gowns (powder blue, beaded Elie Saab Couture on B, and a gold and white strapless Georges Chakra Couture on S), cameo appearances by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell (as themselves, reading the roles of Blair and Serena from a script written by Dan), the return of Jenny Humphrey (briefly!) and the reveal of Gossip Girl's identity. And it's not Dorota.

The person behind the mysterious blog that has kept tabs on the Upper East Side's elite was not a girl at all – it was Brooklyn's very own Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley).

The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.

Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.

Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.

Keep up with who has been cast below:

Avril Lavigne had some special support at a party to launch her Abbey Dawn accessories line in L.A.: her ex-husband, Deryck Whibley!

The Sum41 rocker came out to the JustFabulous party at the Viper Room, and even shared a hug with Lavigne, who reportedly split from her boyfriend Brody Jenner in January. Whibley also posed for pictures at the event and congratulated Lavigne on her hard work.

And Lavigne wasn't simply enjoying her party: she performed a set packed with her hits (including "Girlfriend" and "My Happy Ending") for a packed house, which included Taylor Momsen, Mena Suvari and Kimora Lee Simmons, who introduced the rocker before her performance. (The concert was also streamed live on the Internet for fans who couldn't make it.)

Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr to Leave Gossip Girl

Originally posted 05/10/2011 12:15PM

There's going to be a shakeup on the Upper East Side!

Although Gossip Girl has been renewed for a fifth season, not all its fashionable characters will be back: Taylor Momsen, who plays Jenny Humphrey, and Jessica Szohr, who plays Vanessa Abrams, will not return as series regulars, PEOPLE can confirm.

The news may not come as a total shocker – Momsen, 17, hasn't appeared on many recent episodes, and in season 4 the character played by Szohr, 26, left town.

Still, both stars may make guest appearances in season 5 – and Momsen fans can check her out when she performs with her rock band, The Pretty Reckless.

Taylor Momsen suffered another onstage setback last week – only, this time, it was not of the nipple variety.

While performing in Glasgow with her band, The Pretty Reckless, the provocative performer, 17, excitedly told the audience they were "the craziest crowd in the whole of England." Only one problem: Glasgow is in Scotland.

Local student Paul Krane, 26, says the mistake was ill received, telling the Daily Record newspaper, "People began to cheer as they presumed she was going to say Scotland, but when the penny dropped all you could hear was boos."

Don't count Taylor Momsen out yet.

Despite reports that the 17-year-old actress was placed on an indefinite hiatus from the CW hit Gossip Girl after acting increasingly erratic, a source tells PEOPLE she'll still be playing Jenny Humphry.

"She is still a series regular. She's still totally a part of the show," says the source. "Yes, you have seen less of her this season, but it's dictated by creative [executives]."

The source says as Blake Lively and Leighton Meester's characters went off to college, storylines – including the younger Momsen's Jenny – have just been harder to set up.

They're bringing out the big guns – literally – at the newsstand this month.

Gossip Girl actress-turned-Pretty Reckless rocker, Taylor Momsen, poses on the November/December cover of Revolver for the magazine's Hottest Chicks issue, complete with platform heels, a barely-there wardrobe and some serious firepower for a 17-year-old: a rifle, a handgun and a packed holster on her thigh.

But Momsen's not the only one pulling the trigger on a sexy cover.

Suspected Russian spy Anna Chapman strips down to her skivvies for the Russian edition of Maxim, brandishing a handgun in a 007-style pose on the magazine's November issue.
