Raccoon McPantless suspended from Gossip Girl, for being so hardcore


True story: I’ve referred to her as variations on “Raccoon McPantless” for so long, I now get a brainfart when I’m trying to remember her real name. Anyway, this story seems like it happened months ago, but here we go again: Taylor Momsen has been indefinitely suspended from Gossip Girl. Now, Our Raccoon was already on “indefinite leave” from Gossip Girl, and that was announced back in April – but that was something to do with her touring and promotional schedule for The Pretty Reckless. This sounds like Raccoon just pissed people off:

Sorry, Taylor Momsen fans; you won’t be seeing Jenny Humphrey on the little screen for the rest of the year—unless it’s in reruns.

Deadline Hollywood reports that the 17-year-old Momsen—who’s developed a reputation for increasingly volatile behavior—has been placed on indefinite hiatus on Gossip Girl, following next Monday’s episode.

Momsen has only appeared on a handful of episodes so far this season, including an episode guest-starring fashion guru Tim Gunn, who had some not-so-nice things to say about her onscreen behavior and lack of devotion to her craft.

The hiatus will extend to at least four episodes, beginning with the December 6 mid-seaon finale.

Eh. I actually think it’s kind of rude for Gossip Girl producers to act like it’s some kind of SCANDAL and Raccoon is so unprofessional right now. I mean, hasn’t she been an unprofessional little bitch this whole time? And wasn’t she already on leave (sort of) from the show? Whatever. On this one, I hate to admit, I’m mildly on Team Raccoon, just because it seems like the producers are making an unprofessional move, doing this whole thing in public. Maybe they’re trying to get her to quit and break her contract?

    Since I am way out of the age range for this show. I had no idea what she looks like cleaned up… till I saw the picture of her above minus the raccoon eyes.

    She is a pretty girl with all the black sh*t around her eyes.

    And I am so tired of the angst filled teenagers.

    Though it is somewhat funny that they don’t get… that no one over the age of 19… is buying into their self created angst.

  2. brin says:

    Whatever, I’m glad she’s gone.

  3. ams511 says:

    who cares?
    act like a jerk at any other job & you get fired. she can start charging people to flash them?

  4. Innocent says:

    I think Gossip Girl will be gone for good soon they have just completely ran out of storylines.
    How ridiculous is the latest plotline about some random playing by Katie Cassidy teaming up to bring down Serena and the gang

    As for Taylor music is her forte

  5. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    I used to think she was acting out this ‘hardcore persona’ but not so sure now, think she may actually be an out of control brat obv encouraged by her mother Dina Lohan mark II

  6. Michael says:

    gossip girl is starting to super suck anyway. honestly what was keeping my attention was jenny uber bitch coming back & hopefully putting blair & serena in the their places. sigh, oh well…. i still loooooove the bitch.

  7. Jayna says:

    I think Madonna made a mistake choosing her for the Material Girl line model.

  8. Jennivo69 says:

    I think this girl is just trying to find herself through all the bs that is hollywood. She’s an artist and expressing herself..and if she has angst…who didn’t as a teenager? She’ll outgrow it and her rebellious attire will disappear! She’s just a kid people!!

  9. Chris J says:

    Poor girl is even more unattractive without the raccoon eye makeup.

  10. bros says:

    without her raccoon makeup she looks like a dead-eyed truck stop waitress.

  11. Lori says:

    All y’all haters are jealous. /sarcasm

  12. katie says:

    Hautie-She’s not pretty- she still had b***h face going on full blast. She would be pretty if she’d smile sometime!

  13. Persistent Cat says:

    I still don’t hate her.

    I am too old to watch Gossip Girl but used to for the visual porn of Manhattan, shoes and purses but I stopped watching it this season because, well, it really does suck.

    She’s young and doing stupid things like most of us did. She doesn’t irritate me like some of the others because she obviously doesn’t call the paps to follow her around, I’m not constantly inundated with her every move and she seems to be actually doing something genuine instead of being a fabricated machine for Disney.

  14. devilgirl says:

    She wanted out of GG anyway, so this is perfect for her. The show is a major suck fest now and has been for quite sometime.

  15. Xx says:

    I hear Marilyn Manson is looking for some new jail bait. How hard core would that be. Ha!

  16. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    MAybe she’s really dead and that is her Zombie body.

  17. Sakyiwaa says:

    this girl is actually beautiful…now if her brain would stop residing out of her body…

  18. Anti-icon says:

    Why is Gossip Girl even still on the air. All the “talent” on that show — well, they need to be “schooled” in how to be working actors. Especially this one.

    Cancel the show and find a new posse of talent. The Glee cast needs instructions on how to be a low-key ensemble cast. Everyone’s out for their own 5-minute spotlight.

    Makes it easy to spot the “talent” from the reality show contestants.

    Raccoon McPantless belongs on reality TV.

  19. Ron says:

    I hate it when people who get the dream don’t appreciate what they have. Fire her. No one wants her at this point and maybe she’ll end up working at the Quikeemart and appreciate everything she had.

  20. jover says:

    Mcpantless would get the crap knocked out of her if she pulled this attitude at a Quickemart,etc. SHe’s nothing special, generic retread music, no personality or stage presence, easily replaceable, if she doesn’t realize this you’d think her handlers would, Oh well next.

  21. Ferguson. says:

    @Innocent they will not run out of story lines, as the show is based on a saga of 13 books.

    Whatever, I watch Gossip Girl and I honestly hate her character. So, who cares? I’m glad she’s gone.

    And I don’t think it’s an unprofessional move; @ams511 is right, if u act like a jerk at any other job, you get fired. she’ll have to deal with it.

  22. gabs says:

    Thats life. Gossip Girl sucks now anyways.

    Shes so much prettier without all the crappy makeup. What is she thinking? Ugh.

  23. J says:

    I hate these long straggly looking weaves all of these celebrities have nowadays. That hair she bought DOES NOT look good.

  24. gg says:

    Okay – a person with a real “slave” mentality wouldn’t be wearing rhinestones. And I bet Elizabeth Smart would have loved to have switched places with this little girl.

    Careful what you wish for, Raccoon.

  25. Meanchick says:

    Sorry, still not original, Jessica Biel did it already! Next move, sex tape.

  26. Are people still watching Gossip Girl? O_o she is a douche but her music is good so…

  27. mollination says:

    “maybe they’re just trying to piss her off so she’ll quit and break her contract”

    and it’s funny because I think she’s trying to get them to fire her.

    Neither of them wants to be on this boat anymore.

  28. Gabriela says:

    This little brat…

  29. Louise says:

    I don’t see how this is news. I thought she was planning to leave anyway. She been a part-timer for awhile so nothing has changed.

  30. Bitter fruit says:

    Wonder what she’s on in that last photo. The pupils are tiny.

  31. kbella says:

    I love the fact that you call her Raccoon McPantless it always makes me laugh. That is all

  32. loopygorilla says:

    i dont watch the show.
    but this is what taylor used to look like.


    she was high school cheerleader pretty

    but i guess she decided she wanted to be the high school goth girl or something.

    but hay, it works because look at all the attention she gets. if she was the “old” taylor, she probably will be hanging at z-list celeb parties.

    and this episode reminds of 30 rock, where Janet felt she wasnt getting any attention and tracy was getting all the attention because he was difficult to work with.
    so Janet decided to hire two gays and be “difficult” to work with so she can get some attention.

  33. Dee Vine says:

    Plot line for GG getting really ridiculous but I still watch it for the fashion. Dont think she will be too upset about being out as she is a better singer than an actress.

    However, I think in 10 years she will look back and cringe in embarassment when she sees the Racoon Mcpantless photos. She tries WAYY too hard…

  34. RM says:

    Love this girl! Loved her as Little J and I really hope she, V and Juliet wreck havoc in Blair and Serena’s lives! Would be so boss

  35. LT says:

    #loopygorilla – it’s JENNA. Blasphemer.

  36. NeenerNeener says:

    Hmmm. So that’s what Cindy Lou Who looks like on a 3 day bender.

  37. lorana says:

    good, I do not like this little brat rebel. She had potential but she has made really bad choices, especially when it comes to make up!
