Hilary Duff Joins 'Gossip Girl' This Fall
Calling all upper east siders, there's a new girl in town after failing her apparent movie career. That's right...Hilary Duff will be joining Gossip Girl for maaaaany episodes. When all else fails, join an already hot TV show to get back in the spotlight.
The actress-designer-pop chanteuse will play Olivia Burke, a movie star who enrolls at NYU in search of a traditional college experience. She ends up rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) so it's safe to say she'll be majoring in Drama! (source)
So get your TiVo's ready for October 5th when the season's fourth episode airs with the Duffster on it. Sadly, Duff's comedy pilot Barely Legal was given the boot by NBC after viewing. Thank you, NBC for knowing a monstrosity like that could potentially ruin brain cells.
