Uh oh, it looks like there’s not enough room in the Upper East Side to keep all the lovely ladies on ‘Gossip Girl.’

Ever since Taylor Momsen, 16, was banished out of the city for sleeping with Blair’s hubby Chuck, she’s been staying with her mother in Hudson. Jessica Szohr, 26, lost her best friend Dan after telling Serena about his kiss with Blair. Now we know the real reason why these girls have been MIA — they’re not coming back for Season 5!

Step aside ladies, there’s a new girl in town! KayLee Defer, 24, is Serena’s troubled cousin that desperately wants to live the life of an Upper East Sider and immediately sinks her claws on Dan.

We’re not surprised to hear that Taylor is leaving — it seems she’s been focusing way more on her role as the scantily dressed lead singer of Pretty Reckless.  But we didn’t expect Jessica to also leave the show!

We know that the writers have already plotted for Vanessa to study abroad, but what will Jenny’s exit be? We can’t wait to find out!

Click over to to find out whether we’ll see Taylor and Jessica at all next season — and the surprising news about what’s to become of Charlie, along with Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley. Sorry Taylor — looks like there’s only room for one black swan in the family.

Are you sad to see Taylor and Jessica go?
