It's not as good as a second season of Privileged would have been, but at least it's something: Joanna Garcia has booked a guest role on Gossip Girl as a love interest for one of the regular characters — supposedly Nate.
Garcia will play Bree Buckley, described as "an irreverent, slightly evil Miss America type" who comes from a conservative Southern family but is politically progressive herself. She's going to appear in four episodes, starting with the Sept. 14 season premiere.
I'm glad to see Garcia booking buzzworthy roles — but I also think she comes off as a little too smart to date the Nate we know. Bree sounds savvy, and I hope Nate has to work a little to win her over.
Since other details of the story are under wraps, let's speculate: How do you think they'll meet? And even though Nate's technically single right now, will this new romance spark any jealousy for Blair or Vanessa?
