Ready to take the Upper East Side by storm, Elizabeth Hurley is taking her talents to "Gossip Girl" - as she has just officially joined the uber-popular teen soap.
According to TV Line, the 46-year-old is set for an extended drama-filled stay on the CW network, where she'll act alongside co-stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester.
Elizabeth will make her debut on the show's fifth season as Diana Payne, who producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran call "a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with," adding, "Diana's entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters -- including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."
"Elizabeth's sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. "We feel very fortunate to have her," the producers continued.
