Will hotties Rufus and Lily ever get their due on Gossip Girl? Sure, they're really really really old (kidding!), but that didn't make it any less exciting to hear that there were plans in the works for a series of Young Rufus and Lily in Love webisodes.

But Josh Schwartz himself tells me exclusively that while that idea was explored, that concept won't be going forward and instead another Gossip Girl fave is going to be featured in new mobile content instead.

Who is getting the spotlight? And why do I get the feeling Blair (Leighton Meester) would blow a gasket if she knew this person was getting all this attention?

Dorota, Blair's loyal but much-put-upon housekeeper and confidante, is finally getting some glory of her own. According to Josh Schwartz, talks of doing a Young-Lily-and-Rufus web series were scratched and replaced with "a special Verizon series all about Dorota."

Or, as Blair would call her, "DOROTA!!"

Gossip Girl signed an agreement with Verizon late last year that puts a variety of Verizon phones in the hands of our Upper East Side faves and has now paved the way for a Verizon-exclusive look at the secret life of Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski). We might even learn crazy secrets like...her last name!

Don't know about you, but over the past few installments of Gossip Girl Dorota has quietly turned into one of my fave characters. (Among other things, I would love to see Dorota give "Basshole" Chuck a talking-to about his bad behavior with Blair.)

Does this sound fun to you? Post in the comments...
