Blake Lively and Penn Badgley Celebrate 100 Gossip Girl Episodes With Mayor Bloomberg

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley joined New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to celebrate Gossip Girl's 100th episode at Silver Cup Studios in NYC.

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley linked up with NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg this afternoon to celebrate Gossip Girl's 100th episode at Silver Cup Studios in Queens. Michael issued a Mayoral Proclamation to mark the milestone for the series, which has brought jobs and acclaim to the Big Apple during its five-year run. Michael and his Media & Entertainment Commissioner Katherine Oliver also announced that 2011 was a record-setting year for small-screen production in NYC. Twenty-three series were filmed there, as opposed to just nine a decade ago. The mayor joked today, "Here's a hot tip for Gossip Girl: Spotted — 100,000 New Yorkers making a living from the film and television industry."


The success of Gossip Girl has been great for Blake's career, but she may have hit a minor speed bump with one of her rumored new projects. Blake might not be in The Side Effects, a Steven Soderbergh project she was linked to along with Jude Law and Channing Tatum. Due to some disagreements among the producers, Soderbergh may have to go with a different leading lady.
