After an explosive season one finale, HBO Max’s “Gossip Lady” returned with extra chaotic drama on Dec. 1, and this time round, Julien (Jordan Alexander) is not the one working issues over at Constance. In season two, she has a tough time holding onto her affect together with her sidekick turned enemy Monet (Savannah Lee Smith) gunning for her No. 1 spot.

“We form of wished the chilly exhausting b*tch that might not cease at something to get to the highest.”

The final season of “Gossip Lady” tried to redefine the notorious highschool imply lady trope with some overly vindictive ploys orchestrated by Julien’s minions Monet and Luna (Zión Moreno), however one in every of them has upgraded to a extra sinister function in season two. With Luna and Julien on the outs with Monet on account of the latter’s horrible energy journey, a brand new antagonist has emerged and she or he’s not happening with out a battle — so say good day to imply lady Monet 2.0.

Monet is definitely decided to make a brand new identify for herself in season two, and everyone seems to be being attentive to it. “I believe Monet actually has her time to shine,” Evan Mock, who performs Aki, tells His costar Emily Alyn Lind, who stars as Aki and Max’s girlfriend Audrey, provides, “[It’s] so wonderful as a result of she performs this function that felt prefer it was actually wanted. We form of wished the chilly exhausting b*tch that might not cease at something to get to the highest, and I believe viewers are going to be actually excited as a result of it positively looks like nods to the unique.”

Each good highschool drama virtually all the time wants a villain to shake issues up, and it appears Monet has no downside filling that function. Nevertheless, Lee Smith says there’s extra to her character’s mean-girl vitality than meets the attention. “I positively assume that this season you get to see a little bit little bit of why we’re the best way we’re, particularly with Monet and Luna,” she explains. “Monet’s dad and mom come into play, and her relationship together with her mother could be very telling as to why she may be a little bit jaded or have a tricky, exhausting exterior. However her mother finally ends up being actually the one one that may break that exterior. That is enjoyable to play, and I believe it is one thing completely different that folks will get to see from Monet.”

Whereas Monet is not fairly as notorious as Michelle Trachtenberg’s Georgina Sparks, Lee Smith nonetheless thinks her character may be simply as dangerous as her — if not worse. “I all the time say the second I begin to assume Monet perhaps has some good in her, I look again to season one — Zoya’s birthday,” she says. “That was so dangerous. That was probably the most horrible, imply factor. I did not even understand how I considered that.”

Will we see Monet finally flip over a brand new leaf like Julien? Laborious to say. However Lee Smith hopes she’ll a minimum of soften — maybe if she ever fell in love? “I wish to see how she would deal with that or how I’d play that,” the actor says. “I believe that might be an attention-grabbing factor to see when it comes to the place her character would go.”

Monet’s reign is simply getting began, so we have now a lengthy solution to go till we see her tender aspect. Till then, she’ll be ruling over her loyal (and not-so-loyal) topics with an iron fist. However there is not any telling if that’ll change with Gossip Lady nonetheless gathering secrets and techniques from Julien . . .
