Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick
The entertainment media is abuzz over an upcoming episode of the third season of the American television series Gossip Girl that will reportedly feature a gay kiss between actors Ed Westwick and Neal Bledsoe.
Westwick plays the character of Chuck Bass, while Bledsoe plays Josh Ellis, New York University’s gay head of freshman affairs.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello, who broke the news, described the events that lead up to the smooch on the show in his column:
“Since Josh is tasked with selecting an incoming student for the honour 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 to the gay guy in charge.”
Gay rumours have circulated around Westwick in the past as a result of his much-discussed living arrangement with fellow Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford.
