The identity of the female narrator (voiced by Kristen Bell) on CW’s Gossip Girl has thus far into the strike-abbreviated season remained a closely guarded secret. Until today! The Daily News reports that the person behind the Upper East Side’s scandal-stoking, must-read blog is (SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT) … Eric van der Woodsen, Serena’s younger, closeted, formerly suicidal brother.
If it’s true, the fact that Eric (played by Connor Paolo) posted an item about Serena’s (Blake Lively) possible pregnancy before asking her about it is really lame—even for the admittedly screwed-up world of posh New York City private schools. Then again, maybe he’s just a page-view whore like the managing editor of a certain other Manhattan gossip blog?
