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!
"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!
