Will the Upper East Side be without its Queen B in two years?

We've got the scoop straight from the actress who plays the Queen B herself, Leighton Meester, on how long she'll be sticking around on the show.. check out the spoilers and see whether there will be an opening as "Queen of the Upper East Side" in two years!

Helen: OK, what is up with Leighton Meester leaving Gossip Girl? Is she really leaving?
Since so many of you are still asking about this, we should let you know the latest from Lay-Lay. (She once awesomely questioned my choice of pants with what "clearly is a dress" so I consider us BFFs and on a nickname basis.) The lowdown is this: My E! Online colleague Marc Malkin asked her how much longer she'll be on the show, and she said, "Two more years." Then, when we met up with Leighton late last week, she was a bit more cautious, saying: "I don't know. I can't predict the future. I have no idea. And now everyone's asking me because you [Malkin] asked me the other day! Everyone's like, 'You're leaving.' I'm not, I don't know. Our contracts are up in two years. I mean you never know. I don't know what'll happen." So there is one rumor we can shoot down: Leighton is not leaving the show to join Psychic Friends Network. Also, I sorta heart this girl all the more for speaking her mind—whether it's about shirts-versus-dresses or contracts.
