Get used to life on the Upper East Side without the more lovable — and sane (relatively speaking) — member of the van der Woodsen clan! In an interview with E! Online, Connor Paolo, the artist formerly known as our dear Eric, talks about his new role on Revenge as Declan Porter... and how we probably won’t be seeing Eric on the streets of Manhattan (or Brooklyn, for that matter!) anytime soon.

Paolo dished, “I’m a full-time character on a different series. It’s also shooting across the country, so it’s not much of a crossover. I also think there is some sort of clause about not being able to be on two conflicting networks at once because then there is fan wars.”

You bet there’d be fan wars! Without Eric in the mix, who will serve as the show’s mostly-moral voice of reason? Tell-all writing, Scheme Queen Blair Waldorf-loving Dan Hunphrey? No way! You’ll be back, E...
