An all-new episode of TV's most overhyped hottest show, Gossip Girl, airs tonight, and as you may have heard, Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff will be appearing.

All told, it could have been a lot worse, but also better. Here's the rundown on the episode a little early if you simply can't wait for this must-see CW event:

  • Hilary Duff, while much maligned by some of the show's ardent fans as a stunt casting move, can at least act. Tyra Banks? That's pure stunt casting.
  • Duff's character, Olivia, enrolls at NYU to live a normal college life. She's a movie star, which new love Dan (Penn Badgley) somehow doesn't know.
  • Banks' character, Ursula, is co-starring with Olivia in a movie premiering in New York. Serena (Blake Lively) gets a job as Ursula's new publicist.
  • Jenny (Taylor Momsen) does not want to rule high school with an iron fist. Blair (Leighton Meester) wishes she were back where she still could.

Tyra Banks is coming to Gossip Girl this fall.

Little is known about the appearance by the Tyra Banks Show and America's Next Top Model host at this time, but she is said to be "putting on her acting shoes."

Awesome Tyra Banks Fashion

Does that means she'll be playing an actual part, rather than appearing as herself? If so, Gossip Girl is flirting pretty hard with stunt casting (and shark jumping).

Banks becomes the latest high-profile guest star to be announced for the hit show, which recently signed Hilary Duff for a multi-episode role as a college student.

Looks like Tyra is striving to annoy peeps on as many CW programs as possible. Here's hoping this part is a one-take roll with her barely visible in the background.

Are you excited for Tyra Banks on Gossip Girl?
