The Gossip Girl penultimate finale promises lots of action as Serena (Blake Lively) dives headlong off the wagon right into hell –  thanks to Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg).

But the real action is back stage as the Gossip guys ready for war!

GG’s best boys, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley and Ed Westwick, have all been jockeying for the number one slot in the eyes of the media.

"Penn was supposed to be the show’s breakout star," an insider told the New York Daily News

"It is obviously Chace and Penn doesn’t like it."

Girls and guys alike swooned over Chace "Cad" Crawford as he walked the Met’s Costume Gala with his manly comrades in arms. 

But it was Chace –and only Chace — that got to party with George Clooney at his after-party at Bungalow 8.

Despite the boys’ public insistence  there’s no rivalry, be ready for mano-a-mano posturing all over the bars of Gotham when Gossip Girl resumes filming in June
