Ten years after the pilot episode of Gossip Girl introduced us to the (sex) lives of the Upper East Side elite, the show’s creators are looking back at some of the scandalous R-rated scenes they were forced to cut — remember, this was the show that brought us limo sex, hotel bar sex, and a threesome featuring Hilary Duff.
“We had a story about Chuck (Ed Westwick) taking care of Blair (Leighton Meester) under a table at Xan’s,” the show’s executive producer Joshua Safran told Vulture. “I don’t think we were able to do it, but we hinted at it.”
Unfortunately for us all, Standards and Practices would step in at times to restrict steamy story lines. In one episode, Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg) sends Serena (Blake Lively) an, ahem, gift of sorts. “There were dildos she sent to Dan (Penn Badgley) at the house, and we had these really huge dildos in this house that Penn was so shocked to see — but we cut it because you couldn’t show them on air,” said Safran. “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.”
Let the campaign to put that deleted scene on YouTube begin!
