Gossip Girl Dives Back Into the New Season's Drama

The Gossip Girl cast was out and about Manhattan yesterday just as the season premiere hit our small screens last night. Taylor Momsen was shooting new scenes while Leighton Meester took a walk with a friend. Jessica Szohr, Chace Crawford, and a freshly tattooed Ed Westwick went to a party at Club Avenue after Chace stopped by Live With Regis and Kelly. Meanwhile, their on-screen characters have returned following their over-the-top Summer vacations, which made Serena a paparazzi magnet while Chuck and Blair spiced up their relationship. Nate has a Romeo-and-Juliet love interest just as Jessica heats up with the secret Humphrey child. There's so much more gadgets, fashion, beauty, and drama to come as the Upper East Siders tackle their first day of college next week.
