Leading the charge in the allegations against Armie Hammer is an Instagram account by the name of @houseofeffie, run by a woman who engaged in a sexual relationship with the actor, along with celebrity tea-spilling Instagram page, @deuxmoi.
The latter has been posting loads of anonymous tips that they receive about Hammer, including a query about whether or not Blake Lively got him fired from Gossip Girl.
For those who don’t remember, Hammer played a character named Gabriel on Gossip Girl season 2 back in 2009. The character was a con-artist who got with Serena (Lively) so that he could swindle her mother and their rich Upper East Side friends out of money through a scheme hatched by him and his socialite GF, Poppy.
Years later, in 2017, he was interviewed by Real Housewives mastermind Andy Cohen where he was asked who the “biggest diva” on Gossip Girl was (side bar: this is the second time today that the Real Housewives franchise has been linked to Armie Hammer, the first being a report this morning about the actor’s alleged relationship with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Erika Jayne).
Said interview was reshared today by @deuxmoi and while it doesn’t have anything to do with the current allegations against him, it’s certainly interesting to hear behind-the-scenes details about what went down while he was on the set of Gossip Girl.
He appeared really nervous by the question but Chelsea Handler, who was also being interviewed, advised him to answer it as he had already passed on several other questions.
However, he was so against answering this particular question that he even said: “I wish I could take all my passes back and use them all right now.”
“Let me just say that was a tough show to film and I didn’t end up actually filming all the episodes I was supposed to because it was so tough,” he said.
“Oh really? So you were like, ‘Get me out of this?’” Andy Cohen pressed. “It was also like ‘Get him out of here’,” Armie Hammer corrected, insinuating that he had become a problem on-set by the end.
When Andy asked whose love interest he was, he pointed out that he was Blake Lively’s.
“It sounds like she was the problem,” Chelsea said.
“No, no, that’s not what I’m saying,” Armie replied with a smirk and an odd look on his face, adding that his foot is in his mouth.
