When The Vampire Diaries returns to TV on October 3, Bonnie will be there, even if she happens to be dead. But today, on the occasion of Kat Graham’s 27th birthday, we think she looks damn good for a corpse! Actually, the pop star actress has always been way more fun IRL than her onscreen put-upon witch, especially as her music career has taken off.

Vampire Diaries Spinoff The Originals: 5 Reasons We Can’t Wait For October

There were no longer any Twi-hards in the lines at Comic-Con this year, but vampires were still all over the place. I was thrilled to chat with the cast of Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, Joseph Morgan (Klaus), Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley), Claire Holt (Rebekah), Daniel Gillies (Elijah), newcomer Charles Michael Davis (Marcel) and creator Julie Plec, whose dynamic was so sweet, I’m going to have a hard time buying their animosity again on the show. Here are 5 other reasons I can’t wait for the show’s October premiere.

Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley Give Us A Dirty Vampire Diaries Spoiler


There’s so much we want to know about the coming season of The Vampire Diaries, right? What the heck is going on with Stefan being Silas’ doppelganger? How will Katherine deal with being a human? What’s going to happen with Damon and Elena, especially now that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have broken up IRL? Well, when Ian and Paul Wesley stopped by the MTV Comic-Con they managed to tell us a little something about that. Or, well, no they didn’t. They gave you fodder for some twisted slash fic, actually.

But really, VH1 did get a minute with Kat Graham too, and she shared something about Bonnie’s life after death…

Will The Vampire Diaries Spinoff Suck Some Life From The Original(s)?

Daniel Gillies will be in the new Vampire Diaries spinoff

The more we hear about it, the more we are alternately rejoicing and fearing the possible upcoming Vampire Diaries spinoff. Rejoice: Today Deadline reports that Daniel Gillies will bring his admirably moral vampire Elijah to the show, joining TV bro Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and hot werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). Also rejoice: Julie Plec will be the executive producer of this show, which would be called The Originals, should the network pick it up from the backdoor pilot, airing April 25. And hoorah #3: It would take place in New Orleans, a place ripe with so many possibilities for supernatural fun.

According to Plec, the story revolves around Klaus, who hears that some people are plotting against him in New Orleans, so he heads there to set things straight. “And in unfolding that mystery, it takes him back to a town that several hundred years ago, he was actually one of the original settlers of and helped build,” she explained to Entertainment Weekly. “He reacquaints himself with a vampire that he actually turned back in the day, Marcel, who has created a whole set of rules and a whole society for the supernatural community that he’s in charge of — sort of tipping his hat to Klaus and saying, ‘You taught me everything I know.’ So Klaus’ protegé is now the big king of the supernatural community in New Orleans and Klaus is stepping back into that. ”

Happy Birthday, Nina Dobrev! Celebrate With The New Vamp’s 24 Most Seductive Pics

Nina Dobrev's 24th birthday

Back in September, Nina Dobrev told us that she plans on playing a teenager for as long as she can, and we think the Vampire Diaries star, who turns 24 today, can do that for at least a couple more years. On the other hand, now that we’ve seen her play not one but two undead vixens on TVD, she’s going to have a hard time convincing anyone she’s an innocent young thing. Especially not after all those smoldering onscreen looks between her and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. Not that this should be a loss — after all, she must be having so much more fun now than as a weak human cheerleader. And not that we’re jealous of her or anything.

Let’s all wish Nina a happy birthday as we browse through her 24 most seductive looks.

A Totally Objective Guide To The Best Shipped Relationships Of 2012

After watching Spider-Man: The Animated Series in 1997, we decided Venom and Mary Jane Watson were actually a better couple than Mary Jane and Spider-Man, and we haven’t looked back since. In case you’re new to the Internet, pretty much every TV show, movie or otherwise fictional couple has a huge fan base swooning over their relationship. It might be a well-established couple or the characters might have met once to sign for a UPS package, it doesn’t matter. Someone is obsessed with them declaring their eternal love. This is a phenomenon known as shipping, and it is 75% of the reason anyone even knows about Twilight.

Maybe we just spent too much time on Tumblr over the last twelve months (we really, really did!), but 2012 seemed like a year where shipping was front and center. From New Girl to Sherlock, everywhere we looked shippers were building onto the fictional universes they loved, mostly with smooching. So we decided to pay homage to the most passionately shipped relationships of this year as part of our Best of 2012. Don’t see your favorite couple? We probably just didn’t know about them yet, so inform us in the comments! 2013 is almost upon us and we want to feel that Venom/Mary Jane feeling again!

From Game Of Thrones To Liz & Dick, We Look Back At The Best Wigs Of 2012

Have you ever heard of the Baader-Meinhof effect? Basically it’s a cognitive illusion in which, once you become aware of something, you notice it everywhere. For us, 2012 meant a year of noticing wigs in every single aspect of our lives. From TV shows like Vampire Diaries to movies like Liz & Dick to meat space like celebrities’ heads, we couldn’t blink without seeing yet another wig. Nor did we want to.

For example, did anyone else see The Hobbit? Critics turned up their nose at the film’s length, but no one breathed a word about all the magnificent dwarf wigs. (It’s better this way. It was a delightful surprise.) While we try to figure out how to obtain a braided-beard-attached-to-a-toupee wig like ol’ Bombur, check out the best of the best of 2012′s wigs. Lindsay Lohan…you did us proud. Did we miss any winners? Please tell us. We genuinely want to know!

Kat Graham’s Diva Move: Two White See-Through Gowns In One Night – Which Is Your Fave?

We’ve made no secret of the fact that Vampire Diaries witch and pop star Kat Graham is one of our favorite triple threats on the scene. And though she was only at the VH1 DIVAS concert to present Metric, she pulled at least one diva move — changing her outfit between the purple carpet and the stage. She showed off her first gown, by Alpana Neeraj, to VH1′s guest correspondent Jackie Christie — and the two shared a cute moment over their side-swept hairstyles in the video above.

But we haven’t yet heard who designed the second one, which was sheer on the bottom instead of the top, showing off her gams the way the good witch Bonnie never gets to do.
