Last December, it was revealed that the object of Serena van der Woodsen's (Blake Lively) affections, the scruffy Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), had been sabotaging Upper East Side's elite for five years.

Yes, Dan was the elusive Gossip Girl of "Gossip Girl." Although Badgley told HuffPost Live that it didn't make much sense for him to be Gossip Girl in April, when HuffPost TV caught up with him he had nothing but good things to say.

"I miss her like an old lover," he joked at Esquire's 80th Anniversary party this week. "No, of course I do. I miss everyone. Every day of it was a blessing. I wouldn't be here without it."

But what about that dig he took at the CW series earlier this year, ahead of the release of his film "Greetings From Tim Buckley"?

“To be proud of something is a really nice feeling. And it’s a new feeling, and it’s something that I wanna keep going with," he told Salon. "I can walk a little taller feeling that I don’t have to be constantly apologizing for the work that I’ve done in the past."

Well, things may have changed a bit. "I find that almost a year later I definitely do miss a lot about it," he admitted to HuffPost.

We miss you too, Dan. Xoxo.
