Penelope Is Just Happy That Basszohr Is Happy


That’s what we’re thinking of calling the melding of Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams): Basszohr. Either that or Vanesswick. ’Cause it’s like a blend of their real-life-people names and their character names, like they are a blending of the characters and people and some bullshit like that, who are now blending together, as Amanda Setton, who plays Penelope on the show, confirms to People today: “It fell into place quite quickly and we’re all super excited for them,” she said. “They really balance each other. I’m just happy that they’re happy.” Incidentally: Did everyone know that Penelope’s last name is Shafai? Fascinating.
