18Frenemies: Blake Lively & Leighton Meester
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester met on the set of Gossip Girl. They played frenemies Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen on-screen and it seems like the girls really didn’t get along off-screen, either. There have been several reports that the ladies had no interest in being friends once
the cameras stopped rolling.
According to Perez Hilton, an insider confirmed that the rumors were true. “After something of a thaw in their relationship during the final two seasons of Gossip Girl, Leighton and Blake don’t speak anymore.” The insider spilled. “I think it’s simply a matter of both of them being happy not to have to spend 18 hours a day with each other, but the friendship they struggled to build at the end of Gossip Girl has evaporated and they continue to stay as far away from each other as possible."
Although, another insider from the set spoke with Vanity Fair and dished that Blake and Leighton were able to keep things professional. “Blake and Leighton were not friends,” executive produced Joshua Safran told the publication. “They were friendly, but they were not friends like Serena and Blair. Yet the second they'd be on set together, it's as if they were.”
