OK, I may have just watched the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries twice in a row, but I believe this is by no means a sign of an unhealthy obsession. I’m merely dedicated to my job! Also, after crying and yelling at Elena through the TV and trying to send Matt some kind of telepathic hug, hyperventilating during the Caroline-and-Tyler/Klaus scene and pausing the screen to gaze into Damon’s eyes, I realized I’d missed some choice quotes, so I just had to review the fundamentals, you know? Now that I’m an expert at everything that was said during “Growing Pains,” I’m going to challenge you to a little game. Name the characters that said these great quotes…
1. “And now the world has one more quarterback.”
2. “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
3. “I love you, and it’s because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you.”
4. “I am that selfish, but you already knew that.”
5. “I’ll be with you forever … if I want.”
6. “Easy, love. Wrong time, wrong place, wrong equipment.”
7. “You can’t possibly hate me more than I hate myself.”
8. “You don’t have to live with that; you get to live with that.”
9. “I’m smiling.”
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.)

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.
