It wasn't long ago that Gossip Girl premiered on the CW and quickly became the hottest show on TV, buoyed by some of the hottest young celebrities around.

Well, we suppose 2007 is sort of a long time ago. But it feels like it was yesterday!

Upon hearing the exciting news that Ryan Reynolds got Blake Lively pregnant, we got to thinking about what the her former co-stars are up to these days.

The answer, at least in some cases? More than you might think. In other cases ...

Blake Lively
Blake Lively, after closing the book on Serena van der Woodsen, married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds and is now pregnant with their first child. Since Gossip Girl wrapped, she moved on to film projects as an actress, and has kept a pretty low-profile, which doesn't always mesh with her fashion icon status and being named one of TIME‘s 100 Most Influential People. She also launched a new lifetyle website, Preserve, on which she revealed her pregnancy.

Their careers may have peaked on the Upper East Side in the late 2000s.

We're not trying to be harsh, but where has Chace Crawford been? Ed Westwick? For a time, the BFFs were the "it" guys of teenybopper TV. Nowadays?

You'll have to click through the gallery above to find out the answer.

Some cast members would likely prefer you not watch Gossip Girl online marathons so as to appreciate some of their more recent, and refined, work.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly dating actress Jessica Szohr, a former Gossip Girl cast member he briefly dated once before.

The two were briefly linked back in 2011, back when Gossip Girl was a hot show, and long before the slew of Aaron Rodgers gay rumors hit the Internet.

An insider tells Us Weekly of the rekindled romance between the couple:

"They got back together over the holidays. They spent New Years together with a bunch of mutual friends. They broke up because her schedule was crazy for awhile."

Things fizzled out, but it wasn't personal. Now, the situation has improved:

"They just couldn't stay together in that situation but now they have been spending their free time together and things feel good. But they fell right back into it."

The news comes as something of a surprise - not because Rodgers was linked to his former best friend Kevin Lanflisi, but because he had a girlfriend ... we thought.

He and Daisy Newton had reportedly been together for some time.

Former lovebirds and Gossip Girl co-stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr are now giving it another shot, reportedly. Says an eyewitness who saw them together:

"They were eating brunch at Allswell restaurant in Brooklyn Feb. 11. They were seated in a corner table by the window and were kissing and making out!"

Their lovefest continued through into Sunday.

"I saw Ed and Jessica eating brunch at Cafe Colette in Brooklyn on Feb. 12 and they were all over each other, " a second eyewitness tells Life & Style.

Just last month at the Television Critics Association conference, Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck Bass, said he had no plans for Valentine's Day.

"I've never done anything for Valentine's Day because there's never been anyone worth it, and I have no plans this [year]," he told Life & Style.

Though reps for Jessica and Ed didn't comment, the duo ended things amicably before, so it's not hard to see how a reconciliation could happen.

"He's a really rad guy," Jessica Szohr has said about Ed. "He's awesome and smart and talented and adorable, and we make each other laugh."

Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr will not be back on Gossip Girl next fall.

The two actresses, both of whom have been with the buzzed-about CW hit's cast from the start, will not be returning for the fifth season, a show rep says.

Totally Taylor Momsen

Both Momsen, who has made clear her desire to focus on her rock career, and Szohr have been invited to guest star in the future, so things are amicable.

The remaining Gossip Girl gang, however, is intact, with Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford all planning to return.

Actress Kaylee DeFer is also joining the permanent cast as Charlie Rhodes, cousin to Serena van der Woodsen (Lively) and niece of Lily (Kelly Rutherford).

Momsen, who fronts the Pretty Reckless, began an "indefinite hiatus" from the show last fall amid headlines about her shocking interviews and fashion.

Szohr has always struggled to hit her stride on Gossip Girl, although that's more the fault of the writers than the actress. Hopefully this move is for the best.

Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr, a native of the great state of Wisconsin, is dating Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers, according to reports.

Rodgers, the quarterback of the NFL team, dined with the actress Saturday at Bistro Romano along with Packers teammate Brett Goode and a date.

Jessica Szohr, who recently broke up with Gossip Girl co-star Ed Westwick, posed for a few pictures with the staff on her way out of the restaurant.

Looks like A-Rodg has found his new tight end ... or something!

Will this new relationship help or hurt his chances against the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs this weekend? What other bad football puns can we come up with?

Stay tuned there! We just hope he doesn't make like his Green Bay predecessor Brett Favre and start sexting her unwanted pics of his small junk. So wrong.

Jessica Szohr may have no shot in this one. Leighton Meester's a strong competitor, and, well ... she's channeling Gothic Barbie a little too much for our taste.

You be the judge, though. As you can see, she donned oversized shorts and a drapey silk cardigan and platforms at a fashionable Maybelline New York event.

Her Gossip Girl co-star, meanwhile, opted for the high fashion route in a color block Giambattista Valli dress with a draped front at NYC's Cipriani Wall Street.

Which Gossip Girl star's style do you prefer?

Gossip Girl co-stars and real-life couple Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr are no longer together after he allegedly heard about her cheating with one of his friends.

Handsome heir Marco Minuto, the New York Post reports, is the other man. After one of his other friends blabbed, panicked Jessica then flew to London from L.A.

The goal was to beg him to take her back, but sources say Westwick is still deeply hurt by the betrayal and unmoved by her gesture. One source told the paper:

"Jessica recently celebrated her birthday in L.A. and was being openly affectionate and flirty with Marco. They ended up back at the same hotel later that night."

"Nobody knows what happened behind closed doors, but her behavior shocked a lot of their friends. Word quickly got back to Ed, who's been filming in Europe."

Weak. You do NOT f*%k with Chuck Bass!

WTF: Did Jessica Szohr really betray Ed Westwick?

The source continued that "Ed immediately ended their relationship on the phone, and Jessica, who adamantly denied anything happened with Marco, was so distraught over this that she flew to London last Friday with just the clothes on her back."

In vain, it looks like. At least for now.

"She's been begging Ed to take her back, but he is deeply hurt by the whole ordeal. He can't believe that she carried on this way with one of his friends."

Marco Minuto is in the same circle of friends as both of the Gossip Girl stars. Sounds like kind of a douche if he'd hook up with his good friend's girlfriend.

A rep for Jessica Szohr said that "She's been celebrating her birthday with Ed in London" and denied she'd cheated, saying, "The story has no merit."

Westwick's and Minuto's reps had no comment.

Looks like a rough patch for Gossip Girl co-stars Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick.

They're still together, but things have seemed very tense between them the past few weeks, explains an insider, who says it's even spilled over onto the set.

Jessica’s been unable to hide her emotions on set, reports In Touch, citing a crew member who recently witnessed her in tears while in her dressing room.

Making matters worse, Ed doesn’t seem concerned with his girlfriend’s feelings.

On January 29, the British actor and a male friend were seen entertaining two ladies at the Melrose Bar & Grill in LA - and Jessica was nowhere in sight.

“It looked like he was on a double date,” says an onlooker, and according to an eyewitness, Ed and a friend took off with two girls after dinner in LA.
