Will Elizabeth Hurley Play Gossip Girl's Mom?!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We just heard that Elizabeth Hurley will be portraying a new character on the fifth season of the CW's Gossip Girl. Hurley will assume the role of Diana Payne, a take-charge media mogul. Word on the street is that her character will dramatically alter the lives of the infamous Upper East Siders and even the mysterious Gossip Girl. Will we meet Gossip Girl's mom before we see the face of the person with the fastest thumbs on evening drama? We'll find out starting in September. [OK]
