Twilight’s Non-Cullen Vampires, From Cam Gigandet To Jamie Campbell Bower, Compete For This Week’s Hotness

Dakota Fanning, Cam Gigandet, Casey Labow and other Twilight vamps compete for this week's hotness

If you’re like us, you’ve been following this election nonstop for a while — and if you’re like us, you mean the presidential election as much as the Twi-Fight going on over on MTV. Now we’re on pins and needles waiting to see if Kate or Jasper could possibly pull off an upset against Bella and Edward. But we also think it was kind of sadistic to pit the Cullens against any of the other vampires in the franchise. That’s why we decided to make our own little contest here this week — and to make the criteria a little bit simpler: we’re asking you to judge Volturi, Denalis, Amazonians and James’ crew all alike, purely based on their hotness. This is also tough, considering the fact that in Stephenie Meyer‘s mythology, all vampires are hot. But your blood might sing for some more than others. We managed to narrow this down to 20 vamps in all, now it’s your turn! Peruse the pics and vote. Poll closes Monday at 8 a.m.

Xavier Samuel Flaunts Girlfriend, Creates River of Twilight Tears

xavier-samuel-girlfriend

If you’ve seen Eclipse then you know that the Twilight gods dropped a new piece of vamp ass in the laps of Twi-hards, causing them (er, us?) to froth at the mouth. Xavier Samuel plays the blood-thirst Riley (RIP sweet newborn), and he’s Australian, boyishly handsome and generally beefier than Robert Pattinson (photos) but without Taylor Lautner‘s Jersey Shore-esque muscles. In other words, perfs.

With Rob off eating Kristen Stewart‘s (photos) loquat pies and Taylor making out with a picture of his own abs, we thought our chances of landing a Twilight boyfriend were long gone. But with Xavier, hope blossomed in our delusional heart and we knew it would not be long before we were walking red carpets in Marchesa gowns as his better half. Until, that is, we were confronted with these pictures of him and his girlfriend strolling hand in hand in New York City.

You can imagine the kind of scribbling that went down in our journal last night. We wept, we mourned, we blasted Lykke Li‘s “Possibility” on repeat and destroyed our Xavier Samuel shrine while shoving Edy’s Cookies n’ Cream ice cream in our mouth. But then we came across these pics of Xavier and our new enemy hand in hand this weekend and glanced down at his atrocious man sandals and felt a little better about letting go. Rob may be taken, but at least we know we’ll never have to see his pasty white toes pressed up against tight leather anytime soon. And that makes it all okay.

SPOILER ALERT: Nine Reasons Eclipse Is The Best Twilight Flick Yet

eclipse-reasons

Last night, FABlife editor Kate Spencer and I had the privilege of attending an advanced screening of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Being the shameless Twi-hards that we are, we arrived to the theater unacceptably giddy for our age, even snapping a fangirl photo with a cardboard Edward Cullen. After being somewhat let-down by the first two adaptations and covering the sh*t out of Eclipse, we were really hoping the third movie lived up to its growing hype. Crappy wigs aside (ahem, Bella and Rosalie), David Slade‘s film did not disappoint! Here are nine reasons Eclipse knocks the other Twilight flicks out of the newborn-filled water.

1. Intense newborn beheading! Thought the only way to kill a vampire was by setting them on fire a la James? Wrong! Apparently you can also violently snap off their heads! During the ultimate Cullen-werewolf-newborn throw-down, heads were crackin’ off left and right!

2. The Cullens toned down their cakey makeup. Something about our precious Edward looked “off” in New Moon. His handsome face looked flat and overly powdered. It looks like the makeup crew was revamped (pun intended) for Eclipse, because the Cullen clan was the perfect level of pasty. Read more…

Twilight Stars Land In Vancouver To Shoot Eclipse

twilight-vancouver-main

Cast members of the uber-popular Twilight movie series have begun arriving in Vancouver to start rehearsals for the third flick of the franchise, Eclipse. Fan favorites including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Nikki Reed (who has moved on from Rob Pattinson to Paris Hilton dumpee, Paris Latsis) were joined at the airport by cast newbies Xavier Samuel and Bryce Dallas Howard. For a group of hot twenty-somethings with millions of obsessed fans at their fingertips, the crew appeared sullen and low-key as they sulked around the baggage claim. Ashley even made a poor attempt to hide behind her iPhone. Could they be overwhelmed by the recent re-casting drama plaguing the flick?

Noticeably absent from the group were the movie’s mega-stars, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. Tay-Tay’s been busy shooting the rom-com Valentine’s Day, while one RPattz-obsessed Twitter claims the British actor will finish shooting Remember Me in NYC on Friday and then supposedly head to L.A. before landing in “The Couve” sometime next week. Think he and KStew are heading off on a romantic getaway before jetting to Canada for work? [Photo: Splash News Online]
