Kristen Bell Admits That Dan As Gossip Girl 'Makes No Sense'

Remember when Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) turned out to be Gossip Girl, and you were just like, A) Why does Dan moonlight as a female internet stalker? B) Why is Dan such a sociopathic perv? And C) Why is Dan's interior monologue voiced by Kristen Bell?

You are not alone. Even though we all totally wish that she was the voice inside our heads, the wind beneath our wings, even KBell thinks it makes zero logical sense that Dan is Gossip Girl. In fact she said as much to Indie Wire's Peter Knegt, who Instagrammed a picture of Kristen with the caption "Kristen Bell after admitting it makes no sense that Dan was Gossip Girl."

Real talk, girl. Clearly, Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski) should have been Gossip Girl. Or at the very least Chuck's (Ed Westwick) forsaken dog, Monkey. Also, how dare Dan be so internet judgey when his hair looks like a nest for feral subway rats?

Double also, we're loving your adventurous flirtation with turtlenecks, Kristen!

This is what I think should have happened. Gossip Girl should have been played by Kristen Bell, and she would have been a completely new character. In the final episode, they'd have shown everyone to be just slightly different, and this new girl Kristen plays would have been among them and everyone would be acting like they knew her all along. And at the end she'd sit down and write a gossip girl post, completely removing herself from the action and totally skewing things so it sounded like the usual characters people were used to. And thus, making it so the entire series was her edited and skewed version.

i like that.
what i think they should have done was make kristen gossip girl, have flashbacks of like her lurking in the background, some nerd with braces and such, but now she's a millionaire off of ad sales on the site and now she pays some high school kids small change to keep it going while she is bamf on a yacht. just saying, idk.

That would be great too.

This is the problem with most TV: no actual storyline integrity. It's why I like shorter shows - less time to fuck stuff up.
