The Blair Waldorf actress says shell hang up her Upper East Side tiara for good when her show contract expires in two years.
Show producers have allowed Meester to rearrange her shooting schedule to allow her to star in film projects, including the upcoming Country Strong. But that very flexibility looks apt to bite back, because, as Meester said, [i]t allows you to be ready for when the shows over.
When E!s Mark Malkin asked Meester if her departure meant the entire show would conclude in 2012, she said: I dont know but I think theres that old saying about wanting to go out on top.
If youre really going to leave the show, Leighton, can we at least inherit your headband collection?
