According to a well-placed source, Lively, 20, had the nose job after filming wrapped on 2006's Accepted. The source confirms that the California native underwent rhinoplasty and then signed on as a cast member, but that the two events were unrelated.

On a side note: Does frenemy Blair really get pregnant in tomorrow's episode?! Source
