Blair Waldorf was the queen of the Upper East Side, but the queen now has doubts about returning to her throne.

It has been 11 years since we said goodbye to Blair, Serena van der Woodsen, Chuck Bass, Dan Humphrey, Nate Archibald, and all their drama, courtesy of Gossip Girl.

With so many shows receiving the reboot treatment, it is only natural to hope that Gossip Girl will be one of them.

Penn Badgley who played Dan aka Lonely Boy has already said, “Never say never,” when asked about the possibility of returning to the Upper East Side, but Leighton Meester is not so keen.

The 32-year-old, who portrayed Blair, has now said, “ I don’t know if it was the healthiest environment.”

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” she told Porter. “It’s sort of a time capsule. A lot of the questions that come from it are: ‘Do you miss it? Did you love what you wore?’ And I understand that, but — and I say this with nothing but love — it is like saying, ‘High school was an amazing time for you. Do you wish you could go back?’ And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn’t wanna go back to it.”

The readers of Gossip Girl will be most disappointed.
