Rumor has it that Kristen Bell will be appearing in Gossip Girl before the season’s out.

The 32 year-old actress is currently pregnant, expecting her first baby with partner Dax Shepard and according to TV Line, she filmed her cameo earlier this year. Kristen has narrated Gossip Girl since the program began in 2007 and the whole premise of the programme is that nobody knows exactly who the gossip girl is.

As fans send themselves clinically insane trying to piece the clues together and uncover the true identity of the Gossip Girl, these rumours will of course send dedicated viewers into a frenzy. What is the purpose of Bell’s sudden on screen appearance, right in the last episode, when she has maintained an off-screen presence all these years? Warner Bros would not be drawn into commenting on the rumours, though they did reveal last month that the blogger behind Gossip Girl would be revealed in the final episode. However, viewers can’t necessarily assume that Kristen Bell’s character is actually the one tat they have been waiting to meet for so long.

On November 9, 2012, Bell posted on her Twitter page, the news that she had just recorded her last ever voiceover for the show. “The saddest day I've had in a while… Last day on #gossipgirl. I'll miss you, you snarky bitch."
