It turned into a Cinderella story... I developed a proposal and the characters of 'Gossip Girl' for my job.”
“My biggest fear in writing 'Gossip Girl' was that the characters would sound like stereotypical rich, air-headed heiresses. These were my friends. They were smart and multifaceted. They had interests and passions. They wanted to become lawyers and doctors and writers and filmmakers.”
