Wow! They're trading in that obnoxious Vanessa Abrams and getting HER?!

UPGRADE!

Elizabeth Hurley may have lost her job as the villain on the scrapped Wonder Woman pilot, but she's been reportedly tapped for a multi-episode arc on the upcoming fifth season of Gossip Girl!

According to executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran, the actress will portray a woman named Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with. Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters — including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."

They continue:

“Elizabeth’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her.”

Oh man - she will be PERFECT for this role!

Absolutely inspired casting!

And not a bad fall-back, either!

Well done, gurl! We can't wait to watch you color the Upper East Side with some serious FEROCITY!

It's about time someone did!

What do U think?? Are U excited to see Elizabeth join the cast??

    I honestly did not know Gossip Girl was still on the air, so good for Ms Hurley, she needs to be in something, I might even check it out.

    Yes I am excited to see a true sophisticate with a real not fake English accent. She will be a wonderful asset to the show. I love GG. And now this. Great news.

    Liz Hurley may be English, but her accent certainly isn't the one she was born with.She isn't quite as posh as she would like us to think- she went to a Comprehensive in Basingstoke!

    I never liked her much except the way she talks which is cute but is really nice that she doesnt inflate her mouth no longer.

    Why must we constantly accept refuse from the U.K. and Australia?
    This job could have gone to a competent American.
