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.

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.

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?
