Vanessa’s mom cast on ‘Gossip Girl’


The “Gossip Girl” gurus have been searching for an actress to play the mother of renegade (and virtually useless) Vanessa.

Now they’ve found her: New Rochelle’s Gina Torres.

TVGuide.com reports that V’s mommy, named Gabriela Abrams, will be the warm and fuzzy type, unlike many of her friends’ parents.

Yet V lives in Brooklyn and is working at Rufus’ gallery to pay the rent, while Mom resides “off the grid” in Vermont.

Doesn’t exactly sound like quality parenting to me…but that’s what makes “GG” so much fun!

If Torres looks familiar, that’s because she’s had recurring roles on “24,” “Firefly”  and “Alias.” She also played Cas opposite hubby Laurence Fishburne – now the star of “CSI” – in the Matrix sequels.
