And it was no different last night, as she attempted to ruin Blair Waldorf’s (Leighton Meester) royal wedding to Prince Louis.
Sparks cunningly taped Blair’s ex-boyfriend Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) professing his love to his former girlfriend ahead of the nuptials, and then played the audio to the entire wedding party.
Despite going through with their vows, a furious Price Louis later proceeded to tell Blair that their marriage will be a ‘loveless one.’

‘It’s always amazing coming back to Gossip Girl. We’re a family. Even if Georgina always tries to break it up,’ Michelle told TVLine.com at the time.
‘I can’t say how many episodes [I'm doing],’ she added. ‘But there will definitely be a healthy dose of Ms. Sparks, and to be a part of the 100th episode, a big milestone, is very special.’
According to the show’s producer Josh Safran, Georgina’s storyline is ‘unlike anything that she has done before on the show.
‘Of course, she still is Georgina and all that implies, it’s just taking that in a new direction,’ he told the website.
Michelle added: ‘What we love about Georgina is that she can’t help but be evil, even when she pretends to be good.’
