Attention Gossip Girl fans: The Upper East Side is about to get a whole lot sexier!

TVLine.com reports the CW teen soap has snagged Elizabeth Hurley for a multi-episode arc as sexy media mogul Diana Payne.

Gossip Girl's executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran describe the model's character as "a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with. Diana's entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters -- including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."

Add the producers: "Elizabeth's sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. "We feel very fortunate to have her."
