TV style guru Tim Gunn has lashed out at Taylor Momsen’s “pathetic” behaviour on the set of Gossip Girl – branding the teenager a “diva”.

The singer/actress returns to the show in its new season, which premiered earlier this week, and Gunn has a cameo in one episode of the series.

But the Project Runway star was unimpressed with Momsen’s attitude.

He tells E! Online, “What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself, ‘Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?’

“I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’

“She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff’.”
