Elizabeth Fisher (former alias: Evelyn Bass) was a recurring character on the television adaption of Gossip Girl. Elizabeth is the biological mother of Chuck Bass, and was presumed to be dead until the third season.
Bart Bass had always told Chuck that his mother died giving birth to him, putting a huge burden on Chuck. In Season 3, Elizabeth comes to visit Bart's grave and Chuck finally meets her. Although he doesn't trust her at first, they develop a relationship. She is actually in love with her brother-in-law, Jack Bass, and ends up betraying Chuck, although she regrets it later.
In the fifth season, it was "revealed" that Chuck's actual birth mother was Diana Payne, and that Bart had cheated on Elizabeth with Diana. An arrangement was supposedly made: Diana was to leave town alone and leave Chuck to be raised by Bart and Elizabeth, as Elizabeth couldn't get pregnant. But Elizabeth couldn't continue to raise someone else's child as her own, so she left Chuck with Bart. However, this "revelation" was later revealed to be false.
It was then revealed she was Chuck's mother as she sent Nate a picture of herself pregnant with Chuck. The email said "I'm tired of all the lies." The reason she stayed away is unknown.
We learn in Season 5 that Chuck's mom's birthday is 8 July 1969, when Chuck reveals that the combination of Bart Bass' old safe is his mother's birthday.
