"Blake and co-star Leighton Meester are fans of Victoria's designs, and have both worn her dresses. Blake attended the unveiling of Victoria's new collection in New York last month, alongside the series' stylist Eric Damen. The trio started chatting and Victoria revealed she was a huge fan of the show. From here, Blake pleaded with her to guest star in an episode and ran the idea past producers," said a source.
Talks were held although Victoria had a few conditions.
"She isn't an actress and wanted her role to be very tongue-in-cheek. And an idea for her to play Brit actor Ed Westwick's long-lost mother was quickly vetoed. Victoria joked that she'd rather play his ex-love interest!"
Gossip Girl revolves around the lives of privileged teens at an elite private school in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Victoria will wear one of her own designs during the show.
