'Gossip Girl' Had Scenes That Were Too Racy to Air

'Gossip Girl' Had Scenes That Were Too Racy to Air”

If the 10-year anniversary of Gossip Girl's premierehas brought up all sorts of feelings you thought you left buried on the Upper East Side, you're not alone.

Safran told Vulture that he doesn't have many regrets about his production choices, but does wish the show had had a more diverse cast. "The deleted-scene version, which I don't think we ever put anywhere, is hilarious because they're like a foot and a half long".

It's true that the six main characters of the show - Serena, Blair, Dan, Nate, Chuck and Jenny - were all played by white actors, and their romantic storylines were predominantly heterosexual.

In a new interview with Vulture, executive producer on The CW show, Josh Safran, recently revealed that he has some regrets about what didn't make it into the show. And Serena's brother, Eric, came out as gay during the first season, but his story wasn't developed as much as others.

Only showing straight romance and having just one non-white cast member isn't the only controversial issue presented by Gossip Girl that audiences have picked up on.

While 2008's Gossip Girl promotional posters showed the characters engaging in some naughty behaviour alongside review snippets that promised to offer up content that was "every parent's nightmare", we now know that what could have been is far more salacious. He ends up finishing the series by getting married and goes on to live happily ever after with Blair, apparently facing no repurcussions.

Meanwhile, in the same Vulture interview, Schwartz revealed that Blake Lively's character Serena was nearly played by Jennifer Lawrence, who auditioned for the role when she was 16 and was "bummed to not get it".
