Rachel Bilson Says She’s Not Single After Revealing Former Crush on Chace Crawford

·2 min read

Rachel Bilson has found a new Seth to her Summer.

Two years after her breakup from comedian Bill Hader, Bilson revealed that she is no longer single during an appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast. “Is he bringing you coffee in the morning? Is he bringing you missionary?” host Alex Cooper asked, per People, to which The O.C. star replied, “Fuck yeah.”

Though Bilson did not reveal the name of her new partner, she recently opened up about a former crush on Gossip Girl heartthrob Chace Crawford. Bilson told Crawford about her crush during a conversation about the early-aughts dating rumors surrounding the pair of teen drama royalty. “Someone saw us talking and the press went with, ‘Oh, did Rachel and Chace hook up?’” Bilson said on the Broad Ideas podcast in late August. “My publicist came to me, and because at the time I was on a break from my serious relationship, I told her she had to kill the story.” 

Bilson continued, “They printed it, but it had a quote from my publicist that this is completely fabricated and I’m like, ‘Wait, that is so mean. I would never want to do that to Chace!’” Luckily Crawford never even heard about it. “I didn’t even realize this all went down,” he said. “I would have been thrilled if they thought we were dating.”

That's when Rachel Bilson revealed her former crush, which came to a head during a night out at Boom Boom Room in New York City with Crawford and friends. “We were silently battling for Chace’s attention,” she said of another friend who was interested in the actor. “We were for sure in competition for you.” 

Clearly, this was a missed opportunity that raises the question, have Bilson and Crawford decided to give us another The O.C. x Gossip Girl relationship crossover? Will they double-date with married couple Leighton Meester and Adam Brody, who have two children together? That's probably unlikely, considering Bilson and Brody dated from 2003 to 2006, but you know what they say about time healing all wounds….

Not to start dating rumors all over again, but I'm definitely rooting for Bilford.
