Gossip Girl's Zuzanna Szadkowski (aka Fan Fav "Dorota") on The Original, The Reboot & Bravo's NYC Prep BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE

    • After Shows

Hey Upper East Siders, this past weekend something we knew would happen, happened. The Reboot of Gossip Girl became HBO Max’s most watched original series trending on Twitter, TikTok and all other social media platforms. The original Gossip Girl, unlike Bravo’s NYC Prep, was a huge juggernaut which aired on the CW for 6 glorious seasons from 2007 to 2012 and helped launch the mega careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Taylor Momsen into the stratosphere. One key member of this brilliant ensemble cast was Zuzanna Szadkowski, who played fan favorite Dorota, Blair Waldorf’s loyal housekeeper. We are thrilled to have Zuzanna here today to chat about the behind the scenes of making this brilliant, classic TV show. We chat with Zuzanna about how she was cast and what filming Gossip Girl was really like. We also chat about those infamous scenes between her and Leighton Meester, some of which will go down as the best in TV history. We also chat about now mega star Blake Lively and what the set was like on the days that then boyfriend, now husband, Ryan Reynolds came by for a visit. We talk about the critics reception of Gossip Girl and the resulting outcry from parents once the show aired. Shooting for the entirely of its run in NYC, we chat with Zuzanna about her favorite things in NYC. Of course, we need Zuzanna’s thoughts on where Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass would be today and would Dorota still be working for them? Of course, we also pay homage to its reality sister, NYC Prep. Might we see a cameo by Dorota in the now trending Gossip Girl Reboot? Well, you will just have to listen to find out.
