Eric Van der Woodsen Connor Paolo Is Getting Revenge On Gossip Girl In More Ways Than One

Just because Gossip Girl won two Teen Choice Awards last night doesn’t mean all things are rosy and peachy on the Upper East Side. Because after news that Jessica Szohr and Taylor Momsen were goners from the show’s upcoming fifth season comes news that Connor Paolo, aka Eric van der Woodsen aka Serena’s little bro, also won’t be coming back!

So, what’s the reason for his sudden departure?

According to UsMagazine.com, Connor is leaving because he landed a huge role on a new ABC show, Revenge (now do you get our headline?), and doesn’t think he’d be able to juggle both roles:

“I don’t know that I’ll be able to recur on Gossip Girl. That’s a question for the creators of both shows.”

But how will Eric’s storyline come to an end?

“Eric’s going to college and he’s going to stay there. He doesn’t come home for Christmas anymore.”

Oh, kind of like how Little J went to boarding school and never came back? Great. What do you think about Connor leaving the show? Do you think the show will be weird without Vanessa, Jenny and Eric? Will you still watch? Tell us in the comments!
