GOSSIP GIRL Same-Sex Kiss Coming

Michael Ausiello is reporting that Ed Westwick’s Chuck, whose character swung both ways in Cecily von Ziegesar’s "Gossip Girl" books, will kiss another man this season.

Multiple GOSSIP GIRL insiders confirm to me exclusively that the CW phenom is currently shooting an episode for its upcoming third season in which Ed Westwick’s legendary lothario kisses another man.

So who’s the lucky guy? And what are the circumstances surrounding the same-sex smooch? Keep reading for all the spoilery details…First things first: Sorry to disappoint, but no, it’s not Chace Crawford. Westwick’s “romantic” interest is up-and-comer Neal Bledsoe (CSI: NY, GUIDING LIGHT), who’s guest-starring in episode 6 as Josh Ellis, NYU’s head of freshman affairs. Since Josh is tasked with selecting an incoming student for the honor of delivering the freshman speech, he’s, shall we say, a person of interest to Blair. In fact, she’s so determined to snag the slot that she goes so far as to pimp out her boyfriend out to the gay guy in charge.

AS THE WORLD TURNS fans will remember Bledsoe from his role as Gary, Sofie and Cole's adoption lawyer, back in 2007.

  1. Actor, Neal Bledsoe (ex-Gary Bradshaw ATWT, ex-Quinn GL, and perhaps better-known for his role as Tyler on "Ugly Betty" ... or more famously as "the guy who kissed Chuck Bass" on Gossip Girl [*]) will be joining the cast of NBC's "Smash" for seven episodes as John Goodwin, starting with the March 5, 2012 episode.
