Gossip Girl Brings In Real Socialite Lydia Hearst

Lydia Hearst is all set to play the role of Amelia on the hit CW show ‘Gossip Girl,’ which seems to be quite fitting since she is a honest-to-goodness socialite in real life.

Lydia is the daughter of Patricia Hearst, and heir to the Hearst family fortune. It might seem a little too easy to write her off — but she’s actually a pretty good writer herself.

She is due to appear on the series starting May 19, and by looking at that promo shot I think it is safe to think she might have a little romantic involvement with Chuck.

I bet Amelia is going to give the other gossip girls a run for their money. Her fashion is fierce! Look at those shoes!
