No Besties On 30 Rock

Sorry Gossip Girl fans, but according to Hollywood reporter Ausiello, our favorite on-screen and off-screen besties, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester won't be joining the hilarious cast of 30 Rock.

Question: Got any more details about the upcoming 30 Rock episode featuring Gossip Girl's Blake Lively and Leighton Meester? -- Ginny
Ausiello:
I'd call this a pretty substantial detail: It ain't happening! According to a 30 Rock insider, the show scrapped the hilarious-sounding cameo -- the frenemies were supposed to appear in a flashback as high school classmates of Liz Lemon's -- for "logistical" reasons. Spotted: B and L kicking themselves senseless. - Source
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were supposed to guest star in a flashback as Liz Lemon's (Tina Fey) schoolmates. It would have been so interesting to see the actors in one of my favortite tv shows guest star in one of my other favorite tv shows. We could have seen a character swap between Lively and Meester wherein Meester plays the friendly one, and Lively plays the queen B. Oh wait, we're already kinda seeing that in the latest episode of Gossip Girl.

Anyway...

Steve Martin is replacing the guest star spot in 30 Rock.

I've gotta say...

So disappointed.
