‘Gossip Girl’: Penn Badgley reacts to Blake Lively’s wedding

Mrs. Carter: Blake’s ex is speaking out!

There have been celebrity weddings that have come out of left field before, but we are not sure that any of them have been covered up quite as well as what went down between Blake Lively and movie star Ryan Reynolds in the Charleston, South Carolina area on Sunday night. Although the couple was spotted out over the course of the weekend (as was Lively’s family), the pieces were ultimately not put together until the ceremony was pretty much under way and there was a white tent up at their plantation.

Just in case you want even more evidence as to how under-wraps this ceremony was, let’s just say that Lively did not even tell one of her “Gossip Girl” co-stars that she just so happens to have dated for several years. Speaking to People Magazine, here is what Penn Badgley, who plays Dan on the show and dated the actress up until 2010, had to say:

“I actually didn’t know until last night, but I think it’s fantastic … I couldn’t be happier for her.”

Even though Badgley was surprised obviously by the sudden nuptials of his co-star, he does not have any reason to be bitter at all. Penn is now dating actress Zoe Kravitz, and seems to be in a great place in his own life. “Gossip Girl” is currently filming its final few episodes in New York City, and it will premiere with new episodes on Monday, October 8 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. If the show runs through its season non-stop, it may be time to drop the curtain on the show before the holiday season.

Do you applaud Penn for giving such a nice statement about his ex? If you want some more details about the wedding, all you have to do is visit the story over at this link.
