Frankly, this wasn't a huge loss for the show!

Let's face it, that character was pretty detested by fans from the get-go!

Jessica Szohr, who played hipster pain-in-the-ass Vanessa Abrams for the past few years on Gossip Girl, recently opened up about getting axed from the series in the fourth season finale, and revealed that she was just as tired of playing the character as everyone else was of watching her!

She explains:

"When I started the fourth season, I kind of had a talk with the producers. We didn't know what we were going to do with the characters. After playing someone for four years, it can be a little repetitive. So I was ready for a change. I had so much fun and I made friends I'll have for a lifetime and it was so great to work in the city, but I got the most I could out of Vanessa. I have two movies that I start in August and July and I have a couple movies coming out in the next couple months."

Well, glad to hear that she's got other stuff going on!

And we're sure she must be silently thrilled to not have to be on set with her ex Ed Westwick all the time, too!

Best of luck, gurl!

We wish we could say that Vanessa will be missed, but well…you know. It's nothing's personal!

LOLz!

    Vanessa was probably the most real person on the show when i watched like 2 years ago. I don't know what her character developed into, but she was more free loving and not snobbish and just an all around well rounded person, the others were so vapid and fake and nothing I would or could continue to care to watch, which is why I stopped.

    I DONT WATCH THAT SHOW BUT IF THE CHARACTER WAS NAMED "VANESSA ABRAMS" I CAN IMAGINE HER BEING AN ANNOYING JEWISH CHARACTER SO I GUESS IT IS GOOD THAT HER CHARACTER IS GONE

    Re: tbd12345 – She was not like that anymore. She was self righteous and mean. She screwed Dan over two times, plotted against Serena. And I don't mean harmless scheming, she did some pretty heavy stuff. But anyway, FINALLY. No one liked her character.
