Elizabeth Hurley Joins “Gossip Girl”

Spotted: A leggy brunette on the Upper East Side.

Though Elizabeth Hurley is no longer playing Wonder Woman’s nemesis Veronica Cale in the now-defunct “Wonder Woman,” she’ll take on a New York stalwart—the Upper East Side (and, assumedly, Blair Waldorf).

People reports that the British bombshell is signing on to the cast of “Gossip Girl.” She will be playing Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with,” said executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran.

"Diana's entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters -- including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself," the producers said.

The 46-year-old actress joins the cast for “Gossip Girl’s” fifth season, which airs Sept. 26 on The CW.
