In the upcoming season of Gossip Girl, Ed Westwick's infamous character, Chuck Bass, will be kissing someone other than Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester).
That's not a huge surprise for a character who was once given his own CW promo set to Britney Spears' song "Womanizer." The shocker is who he kisses.
It's actor Neal Bledsoe.
That's right, a guy.
According to insiders, Chuck's gay kiss happens in the sixth episode this fall after he meets Josh Ellis, New York University’s head of freshman affairs.
Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick as Gossip Girl's Blair and Chuck.
Josh is in charge of selecting an incoming NYU student to deliver the freshman class speech. Blair, who got together with Chuck at the end of last season, is wants that position so badly that she pimps out the Basshole to the gay guy in charge.
The catch? All we know right now is that, apparently 1. there is a catch, and 2. we won't believe what Chuck says to Blair following the same sex lip-lock.
FYI, Chuck was gay or at least bi-curious in the Gossip Girl books, so perhaps it was only a matter of time. Still, this comes out of nowhere for TV Chuck.
As if Gossip Girl weren't sexy and intriguing enough! What do you think will happen? Are you excited to see Chuck go gay or is it just a cheap stunt?
