Hot on the well-polished designer heels of the show’s 10th anniversary, members of the cast and crew of Gossip Girl are sharing stories about what never made it to air, and some of the memories and anecdotes might surprise you. For example, the show’s co-creators recently revealed that Gossip Girl cut a scene that involved sex toys, and we’re actually kinda bummed.
Of course, it’s important to remember that at the time, Gossip Girl was considered pretty risqué for a teen show. In fact, parents were often outraged at the series for its sexy antics and ad campaigns. But it seems that there were some plot lines just too racy to make it to air.
“There were dildos she sent to Dan at the house, and we had these really huge dildos in this house that Penn [Badgley, who played Dan] was so shocked to see — but we cut it because you couldn’t show them on air,” Safran said in the Vulture interview. 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. Penn was really shocked.”
Any other scandalous moments that got cut? Do tell.
