It's official, I'm not the only one who loathes the Gossip Girl character Vanessa (Jessica Szohr). Even Gossip Girl author Cecily von Ziegesar doesn't like the TV version of her creation. Check out this quote from an interview with People magazine.


“I think Vanessa is one character they ruined,” she says. “In the book, she’s kick-ass and has a shaved head and wears lots of black. I think a lot of the readers who don’t usually read teen fiction identify with Vanessa,”

Now I've never read the books, but to me Vanessa has always been the female weak link of Gossip Girl. Just as I believe Nate is the male weak link. What do you think?

Do you like the character of Vanessa?
