Let's Talk About Bridgerton's Lady Whistledown Reveal
Goodbye, Dan Humphrey. When we sat down to watch Bridgerton, we were fully prepared to wait many seasons to find out the identity of its Julie Andrews-voiced gossip girl, but the new Netflix hit simply decided to give us what we wanted in the season one finale—instead of making us wait until the series finale, a la the actual Gossip Girl. Spoilers ahead, obviously. Lady Whistledown was, of course, none other than Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan), the younger Featherington sister who was naturally dismissed by her family and her crush, Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and who was often forced to listen to her Bff Eloise's (Claudia Jessie) endless theories about who Lady Whistledown...

She knows everything about everyone - and no, she doesn't turn out to be a male ghostwriter like Dan Humphrey. Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) makes it her personal mission to unmask the mysterious lady, failing to realize that she's been so close to London's source of piping hot tea. Lady Whistledown, dear reader, turns out to be Eloise's dear friend Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan).

Guess What ‘Gossip Girl’ Fans? Blake Lively Gave Penn Badgley His First iPhone

Guess What ‘Gossip Girl’ Fans? Blake Lively Gave Penn Badgley His First iPhone
The evidence supporting the fact that Penn Badgley was indeed behind the “Gossip Girl” account is shaky at best. From fans to cast members, nobody was totally sold on the idea that his character Dan Humphrey ghostwrote the often-damning text messages and blog posts on the CW soap opera, which premiered in 2007. In a video chat for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue, Badgley and Chace Crawford revealed new information that weakens the case.

Ok, so this isn’t really about Humphrey, it’s about Badgley’s own technology habits. But fans of “Gossip Girl” will find it fascinating nonetheless.

The iPhone was released in June 2007. At the “Gossip Girl” Halloween party four months later, Badgley was in possession of the smart phone. He was the first cast member to have one, according to Crawford. Gossip Girl would surely have all the latest gadgets as soon as they hit the market,

Spotted: Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford Reunite to Talk About ‘Gossip Girl’
On the primetime soap “Gossip Girl,” Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford played two very different teen characters: Badgley’s Dan Humphrey was a member of the Brooklyn literati, while Crawford’s Nate Archibald inhabited Manhattan’s social whirl. Now, their grown-up roles subvert those images: Badgley plays a bookseller — and snobbish serial murderer — on Netflix’s “You,” while Crawford makes for a smirking, haughty superhero on Amazon’s “The Boys.” Of course, the two actors had a lot to say about “Gossip Girl” too. They talked to each other over video chat for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue.

Chace Crawford: Penn, buddy! I checked out Season 1 of “You” a couple of years ago, but watching Season 2 last night, it was interesting to see a guy I worked with for so long on my TV screen again. But was it interesting for you — the show starting out at Lifetime having a certain trajectory,

From the pilot in 2007 to the last episode in 2012, Gossip Girl graced the screens of viewers around the world and had the ability to draw the audience into their screens each week to find out what the Upper East Side was up to. As fans know, the on-going mystery around Gossip Girl's account and what their ultimate plan was for the young and rich was very real. Serena, Blair and all of their friends were only in high school, but their secrets and drama-filled lives were interesting and very far-fetched from the normal lives of middle-America; so now that we know Dan Humphrey A.K.A. Lonely Boy, the official outsider of the privileged group of friends is *The* Gossip Girl, it makes sense.
