Connor Paolo leaving Gossip Girl

Just because Gossip Girl won two Teen Choice Awards last night doesn’t mean all things are rosy and peachy on the Upper East Side. Because after news that Jessica Szohr and Taylor Momsen were goners from the show’s upcoming fifth season comes news that Connor Paolo, aka Eric van der Woodsen aka Serena’s little bro, also won’t be coming back!
So, what’s the reason for his sudden departure?

According to UsMagazine.com, Connor is leaving because he landed a huge role on a new ABC show, Revenge (now do you get our headline?), and doesn’t think he’d be able to juggle both roles:

“I don’t know that I’ll be able to recur on Gossip Girl. That’s a question for the creators of both shows.”

But how will Eric’s storyline come to an end?

“Eric’s going to college and he’s going to stay there. He doesn’t come home for Christmas anymore.”

Oh, kind of like how Little J went to boarding school and never came back? Great. What do you think about Connor leaving the show? Do you think the show will be weird without Vanessa, Jenny and Eric? Will you still watch? Tell us in the comments!

I'll miss Eric. :(

xsnickerzzx 21st-Aug-2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
I didn't even know that it was still on. I've never watched an episode of this.

lol mte, I stopped watching after the second season and tried getting back into it but it was so bad.
_______awshucks 21st-Aug-2011 03:48 pm (UTC)
I rarely ever stop watching a show..I just like to know how things will wrap up (whenever that may be..)
ohsnapitzashley 21st-Aug-2011 04:04 pm (UTC)
I know. I could only get through half of the 2nd season before I gave up.
manu19 21st-Aug-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
i stopped now just on time for the new season, i couldnt handle anyone on this show anymore
fauxkaren 21st-Aug-2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
Because I have a hard time giving up shows, even when they turn to crap. I watched E.R. until the bitter end. lol.

LOL MTE. season 2 was such a mess, but the beginning of season 3 was what made me stop.

it was just AWFUL.
_brina 21st-Aug-2011 02:57 pm (UTC)
He was barely in the show anyway.
Soja M. 21st-Aug-2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
This show went to shit when Jenny stopped being in every episode. Connor was always too goo for this crap anyway.
sherrilina 21st-Aug-2011 03:09 pm (UTC)
Lol no, the show was already going to shit but marginally improved when Jenny disappeared forever at last! :p
ivorychains 21st-Aug-2011 03:23 pm (UTC)
lol mfte.

Oh, I liked him :( This next season is going to be a mess (a bigger mess than ever before).
whispertowalkon 21st-Aug-2011 03:00 pm (UTC)
Man I have missed so much since I stopped watching season 4.
emmandemms 21st-Aug-2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
your comparison is pretty disturbing tho
enael LOL21st-Aug-2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
hrdtxpln 21st-Aug-2011 03:33 pm (UTC)
Oh man...that comparison.

hotelmirana 21st-Aug-2011 06:36 pm (UTC)
apt comparison tbh
fionaetcharlie 21st-Aug-2011 03:01 pm (UTC)
Lucky him.
badcord 21st-Aug-2011 03:01 pm (UTC)
well I'm done
ghost_helwig 21st-Aug-2011 08:12 pm (UTC)
That was my thought exactly.
supermishelle 21st-Aug-2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
I stopped watching after the 2nd season.
ivorychains 21st-Aug-2011 03:24 pm (UTC)
So did I. I watched the first few eps of S3 and then I just pretty much dropped it.
jeffreyuno_1 21st-Aug-2011 03:03 pm (UTC)
Angelina looked her best around this time (in the face)...she needs a little fat there.
for_serious13 21st-Aug-2011 03:10 pm (UTC)

she needs to gain like 10 lbs at least
workbitch 21st-Aug-2011 03:03 pm (UTC)
Umm, how is this not cancelled yet? It seems no one wants to be on it anymore.
sherrilina 21st-Aug-2011 03:04 pm (UTC)
Wow, really? :( He's definitely one of the best characters on the show, though he doesn't get much of a storyline these days....I sure hope the new show works out for him, since otherwise this a pretty risky move. I guess his contract must have bene up though?

Def more sad than Jenny or Vanessa going away...I wonder who's next? Now if they kiL off Serena there won't be her brother to mourn her...

And lol what is that pic from?
for_serious13 21st-Aug-2011 03:11 pm (UTC)
from the movie Alexander
sherrilina 21st-Aug-2011 03:20 pm (UTC)
Thanks, and nice icon! ;)
smolderhotter 21st-Aug-2011 03:11 pm (UTC)
it's from "Alexander"...and lol Blake Lively said she'd like for Serena to get killed off too. Because she has no storylines. haha
kiki3291 21st-Aug-2011 03:36 pm (UTC)
It is risky but I think he'll be better off tbh, I have a feeling this will be the last season of GG (what, with everyone wanting out and everything).

Unless the main cast has signed a new contract I am not aware of...
xtinkerbellax 21st-Aug-2011 04:31 pm (UTC)
He was offered a full time contract but he's always opted to only be signed as a recurring guest star, probably for this reason.

spoiled_water 21st-Aug-2011 03:04 pm (UTC)
Cancel it and give Georgina a spin-off
ljubavirakija 21st-Aug-2011 03:05 pm (UTC)
Like Ryan Murphy, Josh Schwartz knows how to run his concepts into the ground. The OC and Gossip Girl use to be awesome shows before Schwartz ruined them with ridiculousness
barquillos 21st-Aug-2011 03:16 pm (UTC)
IDK I thought the OC had a good fourth season. The third season sucked, but I loved the fourth season.
ljubavirakija 21st-Aug-2011 03:40 pm (UTC)
The only good thing about the 4th season is Ryan/Taylor
commabut 21st-Aug-2011 09:47 pm (UTC)
4th season was amazing
hrdtxpln 21st-Aug-2011 03:34 pm (UTC)
Stopped watching after Marissa died, tbh.
horrorparties 21st-Aug-2011 03:41 pm (UTC)
josh's shows run to the ground whenever he starts letting other people take over, unfortunately.
tw_31988 21st-Aug-2011 03:42 pm (UTC)
don't forget about Chuck.
false_hate 21st-Aug-2011 03:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah, you can always count on them for a first season that is great fun. Then it is as if they run out of steam quickly afterwards.
clairelittleton 21st-Aug-2011 05:03 pm (UTC)
i would never compare the two since the o.c. > gg. i watched a few episodes here and there during s1 and 2 and just laughed my ass off. never again. i thought the 4th season of the o.c. was fine except a few eps, and summer and seth were different.
sumlikeithaute 21st-Aug-2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
Idk if Josh is ruining the show so much as he just stops being a part of the Creative process and lets others write instead.
sophistiquated 21st-Aug-2011 11:21 pm (UTC)
Josh Schwartz was really involved with the first season of The O.C. and became less and less involved (Least involved in the third season) until the fourth season.

He's barely involved with Gossip Girl now IIRC
krestin 22nd-Aug-2011 09:06 pm (UTC)
gotta agree with this. gossip may not be on epic scales like the oc was for the first seasons anyway. you know when your on a josh schwartz your gonna be cursed and cancelled.
deseti_prsten 21st-Aug-2011 03:06 pm (UTC)
Because after news that Jessica Szohr and Taylor Momsen

i hated both of them on GG, but lol like anyone cared that szhor's talentless ass left.
for_serious13 21st-Aug-2011 03:12 pm (UTC)
lol seriously, Jessica was totally useless on that show
