Taylor Momsen is no longer a series regular on Gossip Girl. She played Jenny Humphrey regularly for the first three seasons, and had a drastically reduced role in the fourth season because she took time off to work on her music career. She will not return at all for the fifth season.

There were rumors that she was suspended from the show late last year, but the CW network assured that her reduced role in the past season was for “creative reasons.” I guess you could call walking around half naked and flashing crowds during musical performances “creative.” Momsen is only 17 years old and is already making headlines for this scandalous behavior. Maybe it’s for the best that she will no longer represent Gossip Girl and the CW.

Jessica Szohr is leaving the show after also having a limited role in the fourth season. Her character Vanessa will leave New York to study abroad.

Despite pursuing other interests, both Szohr and Momsen will be invited back at some point to guest-star in episodes of the show.
