Gossip Girl is getting another foreign import this fall! Elizabeth Hurley has signed on for a multi-episode arc in the upcoming fifth season, according to TV Line.

The uber glam Brit — best known in the states for playing Austin Powers’ luvah on-screen, and Hugh Grant’s scorned ex off — is taking to the Upper East Side and shaking things up for all characters, including the omnipresent Gossip Girl.

Her character, Diana Payne, will be “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with,” explained GG producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran. Sounds like the perfect mentor for one Blair Waldorf — especially since B will already face one rival in the form of her fiance’s sister.

Then again, can there really be more than one Queen Bee in the world of Gossip Girl?
