If you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan, you’ve likely seen Holley Fain in her role as Julia — the latest love interest of sexy Seattle Grace doc Mark Sloan (Eric Dane).
For all of us diehard Gossip Girl fans, though, Holley will forever be Maureen van der Bilt: The scheming politician’s wife who put a couple of pretty devious plans into action.
There was the Hudson River drowning scandal to get her husband Trip van der Bilt (Aaron Tveit) into office, for which dear Nate (Chace Crawford) took the eventual blame. Then, we have the game-changing, face-saving, totally-creepy “mistress” storyline that ended in that awful car crash involving Serena (Blake Lively).
Now, with signs pointing to the return of Trip later this season — could Maureen be heading back to the UES as well?
Possibly, but we’re not exactly holding our breath. Recently, our girl’s been busy swapping spit with McSteamy. (It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it — right?) Brought in to fill the hole left by Mark’s beloved Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh), Holley’s role on Grey’s is said to be an extensive one. It could likely keep her from returning to the Upper East Side... at least for awhile.
So for now ― for Mark’s sake ― let’s all just hope Julia doesn’t share any of Maureen’s at-any-cost, diabolical ambition...
