• As you’ve no doubt heard (since, well, we broke the news), Jessica Szohr will not be continuing on as a Gossip Girl regular this fall. What was it like to have the producers say vamos to Vanessa? “After playing someone for four years, it can be a little repetitive,” Szohr said to E! Online. “So I was ready for a change.” yet the greatness of her breakout role is not lost on the starlet, who calls her time on The CW’s Girl “so much fun.”

• Last week, Cheryl Cole had two X Factor judging gigs. This week, zero. Following her recent ouster from Fox’s upcoming reality series, the British performer has also been let go from her duties on the U.K. Factor. Simon Cowell all but announced the switch-up on Monday when revealing the judges for the next season of the overseas hit, and his short list conspicuously did not include the series staple. Serving as judges instead will be Destiny’s Child’s Kelly Rowland, Take That singer Gary Barlow, boy-band mastermind Louis Walsh, and British hip-hop star Tulisa Contostavious.

• This one’s for you, Gleeks: The Hollywood Reporter had your first look at Oxygen’s Glee Project contestants in action, belting out Katy Perry’s “Firework.”
