Gossip Girl Executive Producer Confirms Taylor Momsen Was Crying Real Tears

Gossip Girl Executive Producer Stephanie Savage sat down with Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly to discuss the shocking season finale.  When asked if it was Taylor Momsen’s tears or Jenny Humphrey’s, Savage confirmed that it was Momsen’s real tears.  “That’s what it really looks like if a girl with raccoon eyes cries that much,” she said. “There was nothing we could do.”  She also confirmed that Momsen would return to the show at some unspecified point.  Ausiello didn’t ask the one plaguing question though: was it a creative or personal decision to write Jenny Humphrey off the show?  I’m guessing that they kicked her out to give her some time to get her life together, as she looks extremely emaciated and out of it on the show lately.  I could be wrong though.  I’ve attached an older picture of Taylor Momsen so you can get a feel for the “before and after” I keep referencing.
