I first saw this photo this morning on Arrow star Stephen Amell‘s Facebook feed (like it, you won’t be sorry), and no kidding, all work stopped for a full five minutes. I’m surprised there’s no brain matter splattered on my screen right now. In case you haven’t yet committed the fall TV schedule to memory, here’s who they are, from left to right: Amell, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries), Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Justin Hartley (Emily Owens, M.D.), Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) and Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries). The spread is actually from Bullett Media, who decided to explode our hearts too, by gathering these guys’ quotes about what they look for in a woman.
“I judge a woman purely on how she looks first thing in the morning. That’s the critical point, right?” Amell says. OK, so he’s not all that romantic. But points for honesty!
“If a girl doesn’t get along with my dog, then we’ve got a problem,” McQueen says.
Our personal favorite is from Tyler Blackburn: “I enjoy a certain amount of decadence in my life, so I want to be with someone who shares an appreciation for the finer things. And if that finer thing happens to be fried, well, put it in your mouth.” We’re totally down with that one.
For the rest of the guys’ quotes (especially a surprising revelation from Taylor Kinney, a.k.a. Lady Gaga’s main squeeze), head over to Bullett.

You know what’s great about informal awards shows like the Teen Choice Awards? They have complete freedom to make up categories as they go along, thus ensuring that the hottest, most fan-favoritest stars of the moment will show up and take home some hardware. And no one will complain, ever. Especially as we look at the “second round” of nominees for the TCAs, which take place July 22. You can go here to see the complete list. But we’ll give you the highlights you care about most:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 now has 11 nods, including the Choice Movie: Romance, Actor and Actress: Romance (Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who already have nods for Sci Fi/Fantasy), Liplock, and Scene Stealer: Male (Kellan Lutz) and Female (Nikki Reed).
The Vampire Diaries‘ count is up to eight, with Villain (Joseph Morgan), and Male and Female Scene Stealers (Candice Accola and Michael Trevino).
And, in keeping with the zeitgeist of the year, the TCAs are shaping up to be one long celebration of Channing Tatum. He’s got six nominations to his name. In addition to his previously announced nods for Movie Actor: Drama (for The Vow) and Movie Actor: Comedy (for 21 Jump Street), he’s also now nominated for Movie Actor: Romance (The Vow again), Liplock (The Vow, with Rachel McAdams), Chemistry and Hissy Fit (for 21 Jump Street, with Jonah Hill).
The biggest question now: Will a third round of nominations include a category for Best Male Stripper Movie? Oh, wait. Is that weird when we’re talking about “Teen” choice? Sorry.

It shouldn’t be so surprising that the red carpet for the CW’s upfront presentation yesterday in New York City earns our highest praise, even after seeing the stars attend the events for Fox, CBS and NBC. After all, two of our favorite shows were heavily repp’d. We mean The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. The former had a lot of the series’ stars showing up, Ian Somerhalder, Steven R. McQueen, Paul Wesley, Katerina Graham, Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino and Zach Roerig included. Nina looked terrific in a very tight, satin cream Dolce & Gabbana dress, while boyfriend Ian rocked a Rogue T-shirt and leather jacket with jeans. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles both suited up for the Supernatural stakes, but next time, shave, guys!
A few ladies from 90210 were also spotted — Shenae Grimes, Jessica Stroup and Jessica Lowndes. These were by no means the only shows that the CW presented. Rachel Bilson was there, pretty in Chanel, for Hart of Dixie, along with co-star Jaime King who looked tropical in a skirt and bandeau top by Proenza Schouler. AnnaSophia Robb was there scoring for The Carrie Diairies in a vintage-looking alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet dress with YSL heels. Have a look at our gallery to see who else was there! (And don’t miss our gallery of all the hot stars of fall’s new network shows.)

I’m not sure what hurts more after last night’s season three finale of The Vampire Diaries, my eyes from all the crying or my neck from all the head-spinning. Like every finale (and yeah, every other EPISODE) the show has given us before, this was a game changer for Elena, the Salvatores, their friends and their enemies. So, if you haven’t seen the episode yet, you definitely should stop reading now.
Though it was pure torment, I absolutely loved how everytime I started sobbing about a character dying, the next scene showed them to be alive and well. Perhaps because of all those twists, I was left feeling just a bit unsure about what went down after all. Here are my biggest questions — and a few answers.
1. Wait, so who’s alive and who’s dead now? And which actors aren’t coming back next season? Read more…
Today, Team Jacob loyalists got the sad news that Taylor Lautner’s glorious abs will not be seen contorted into weird shapes for our viewing pleasure. The Wrap reported that he’s dropped out of Stretch Armstrong due to scheduling conflicts. The flick based on the ’70s toy, was originally going to be made by Hasbro and Universal for release this year, but Relativity Media announced today that it will be partnering with Hasbro to make the movie, with an April 2014 release date. According to MTV News, the schedule conflict is with Taylor’s plans to make a Gus Van Sant movie. We’ll give you a minute to get over this disappointment, but then, we want you to cheer up and help us come up with Taylor’s replacement. The movie is said to be an origin story, along the lines of Iron Man, but no age range has really been given, leaving this wide open for all the hot actors we fantasy-casting dreamers have been proposing for everything from Spider-Man to Hunger Games. Of course, some of us here at TheFABlife want Hunter Parrish for all of the movies, but we’d also be open to another werewolf — say The Vampire Diaries’ Michael Trevino? Or how about The Mortal Instruments’ also-ran Alex Pettyfer? Maybe this could be Harry Potter alum Matthew Lewis’ big break, or our chance to see more of Miley Cyrus‘ LOL co-star Douglas Booth. Well, here’s your chance to pick a candidate for the silliest-named superhero of them all:

Happy Halloween, Fablifers! We’ve already shown you the 40 craziest celeb Halloween costumes, and our 10 faves from this past weekend. But those were all such polished, professional affairs, weren’t they? We’re pretty sure that social networking was created mostly so that we could share hastily snapped pics of ourselves and friends making fools of themselves at Halloween parties. And in that respect — silly celebs in costumes, they’re just like us! The collection below gathers the blurry, the scary, the red-eyed, the not-quite-identifiable and the wish-we-were-there shots that famous people from Nina Dobrev and Lea Michele to Eli Roth and Zachary Quinto posted to their Twitter feeds over the weekend. There are some brilliant homemade costumes in the bunch — a bunch of Glee kids as the Rugrats, Leslie Mann as Kreayshawn — after all, many of these actors started off as geeky theater kids. Some A-listers clearly got professional help with their getups (cheating!). And though some look like lame last-minute costumes, we don’t mind because still love seeing the rich and famous not taking themselves seriously.
Peruse the gallery, steal ideas for tonight, and oooh and ahhh at yet another shot of Heidi Klum miraculously making herself gross.
