gg april9 cw 'Gossip Girl' sneak peek: Diana Payne is back, causing pain“Gossip Girl” gets a much-needed infusion of excitement when Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) returns to the show on Monday (April 9). The question is how happy is Nate (Chace Crawford) that she’s coming back?

In a preview with show producers, we see that Diana is ready to reclaim her mantle as the head of the struggling NY Spectator. Her first item of business is to make sure that everyone realizes that sex sells. So she hosts an underwear party. Nothing like having a bunch of good looking people running around in next to nothing to help sell papers. But will this involve Diana running around in her underwear with Nate as well?

At the same time, Serena’s (Blake Lively) not having any fun running Gossip Girl because she doesn’t like writing about herself. So she decides to make Lola (Ella Rae Peck) the new “It Girl.” This apparently fits in nicely with what Lola is looking for.

Then there’s Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) duking it out over CeCe’s inheritance. Hopefully this will feature more interesting activities than last week’s snoozefest.

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s always Chuck (Ed Westwick) trying to figure out what’s going on with his mom.

Uh oh. Uh oh.

Here’s the video…
