Joanna Garcia

Privileged's perky JoAnna Garcia will give Gossip Girl something rather juicy to talk about this fall, in a four-episode arc on the CW series.

Akin to how Madchen Amick kicked off last season with a limited run as a new love interest for Nate, Garcia will do the honors this time, playing Bree, a Miss America-like Southern belle whose progressive lifestyle belies her conservative roots.

Oh, and speaking of roots: Garcia will return to her blonde Reba look for her bit of Gossip (for those who track such things).

Gossip Girl returns Monday, Sept. 14, now at 9 pm/ET.
