Taylor Momsen Getting ‘Heigled’ From ‘Gossip Girl’ Next Season?

Looks like Taylor Momsen will have a lot more time to puff her precious ciggies and dress inappropriately in the coming months. In a stunning display of what we can only call good sense, the producers of Gossip Girl have decided to dramatically scale back the 16-year-old actress’s character, Jenny Humphrey, in the upcoming season (sounds familiar, right Katherine Heigl on Grey’s Anatomy?).

According to a source close to the show, Momsen won’t be seen throughout an as-yet-unspecified number of episodes at the beginning of the season due to “creative” reasons.

As in, they’re creatively trying to come up with a way to get rid of this problem child once and for all? Not quite, and probably not. But maybe! The source continues,

“When you watch the finale,  you’ll see that we’re doing something very big with her character.”

Guess we’ll have to wait until May 17 to see what’s up. In the meantime, tell us in the comments section: Do you think less Taylor Momsen is good or bad for the show?
