The woman behind the drama is stepping in the line of fire.

Cecily von Ziegesar, the author behind the Gossip Girl series, is making a cameo as herself in the season finale (airing tonight), and we have an exclusive look (below) at her scene with Blake Lively.

Gossipers, this collapse of the fourth wall is pretty amazing. I’ve never read the Gossip Girl books, but if they’re half as slutty as the TV show, they’ll but appearing on my personal summer reading list.

So are you excited for the finale tonight, readers?
