Hot, smart, devious black girl on GOSSIP GIRL? Finally!!
Plus it looks like she gets to hook up with both Gossip Girl boy sluts, and also hotties, Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick).
I officially love you Raina Thorpe.
Speaking of actors I love, her father is being played by one of my favorite actors (and also a pretty hot guy) acclaimed actor Michael Boatman.
