January 13th, 2012 11:08am EST
Nina Dobrev
Actress Nina Dobrev is adamant she has no plans to marry her The Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder, insisting they are too young to settle down.

The stars hit headlines earlier this month following reports Somerhalder had proposed and she had turned him down.

A representative for Dobrev subsequently insisted the rumors were untrue, and the two stars have now spoken out about the gossip.

Dobrev, 23, tells Access Hollywood, "(The story is) not true at all... (I would) be wearing a ring if I had one... (Getting married young is) not my (style). I'm young. I'm really young. It's not...

January 12th, 2012 9:45pm EST
The Vampire Diaries
The New Year doesn’t just usher in resolutions to be a better person and practice better habits. For us TV junkies, it’s much more than that—it marks the return of all our favorite TV shows, and The Vampire Diaries is on the top of that list.

The last time we saw our beloved vampire brothers they were plotting to kill Klaus, but failed. Damon was about to end Klaus for good when Stefan stopped him (because if Damon killed Klaus, Klaus’s hybrids would’ve killed Damon), earning his freedom. Because Klaus took everything from Stefan, Stefan decided to pay the favor back, taking Klaus’s family...

Hottest Male Stars of 2011
Let's hear it for the boys! It's that time of year again when we honor the "37 Hottest Male Stars." Our list includes the usual suspects (Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and George Clooney), as well as a younger crew (Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron).

Robert Pattinson dominated the big screen with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," and Ryan Gosling impressed critics with "Drive." We can't decide between who's the sexier magical creature on "True Blood" - Alexander Skarsgaard or Joe Manganiello.

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Homecoming

November 11th, 2011 3:30pm EST
The Vampire Diaries
It’s the midseason finale on “The Vampire Diaries” and you know what that means—we’ll be left at the end of the episode with more questions than answers. But before we jump to the end already, let’s start from the beginning.

Stefan makes a call to Klaus, who apparently is in Portland, and tells him that he’s daggered Michael, and he’s not lying because we see an extremely “dead” Michael lying on the floor next to him. Klaus, who’s had no knowledge that Michael was even around Mystic Falls, is obviously agitated over any news of Michael, so he demands the whole story.

Back up one hour—Stef...

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Ordinary People

November 5th, 2011 8:36am EDT
The Vampire Diaries
This week’s episode of “The Vampire Diaries” begins with Rick and Elena trying to figure out what the cave markings underneath the Lockwood property read. They see names written in runic, a Viking script—And guess whose names they are? The original vampires: Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah. This means that they’ve been in Mystic Falls long before the founding families. The last name on the wall? Michael. Michael as in the vampire hunter. Also as in, as Damon calls him, “Papa Original.”

To find out more about the history of the original vampire family, Elena decides to see if she can get any inf...

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Ghost World

October 29th, 2011 10:05am EDT
The Vampire Diaries
Ghosts of the past flood Mystic Falls just in time for the Night of Illumination, another holiday-slash-celebration mumbo jumbo that the town’s founders came up with.

Mason Lockwood comes back and chains Damon to a chair with a hot poker driven through his chest while letting him burn in the sun—his form of revenge, I’m guessing. However, Damon and Stefan both don’t seem to be able to see him, despite his having a physical foothold in their world.

Jeremy is still able to see Anna, who’s always by his side. They’re being flirty and holding hands—but I don’t think he realizes that he looks ...

The Vampire Diaries
After being hurt by Stefan last week, Elena decides that instead of trying to help him, she should probably help herself first. She starts her first day of school with a little bit of physical training with Rick. First lesson of the day: anti-vampire weapons. Rick tells Elena she needs to hit the weights or else it’s hopeless.

On the other hand, Stefan’s day starts with a bloody fun game of Twister, only he feeds on whatever body part the spinner lands on. Klaus left behind Stefan to keep watch over Elena, but he also decided to leave behind Rebecca, who forcibly moves into the Salvatore ...

As Elena goes off on her merry way to find more materials, she runs into her almost-murderer slash boyfriend-napper. He cuts the fun short as he drags Elena back to the gym where he tells everyone to go home except for these two random kids, who’re probably going to die. Bonnie and Matt walk in, unaware of the fact that Klaus is inside. Rebecca comes in dragging Tyler in tow, who she conveniently attacked in the hallway. Klaus tel...

October 7th, 2011 4:04pm EDT
The Vampire Diaries
We begin back in Chicago, where Klaus and Co. are shopping for Rebecca, seeing as how she only has clothes from the 19th century. Stefan steps outside for some air and sees Katherine, who’s up to who knows what. She knows that Elena has the necklace Klaus is looking for and she wants in on whatever Stefan’s planning. Of course, Stefan says no, but you can’t blame him given Katherine’s track record.

Back in Mystic Falls, Elena and Damon are making chili for the founder’s party, which seems like another excuse just to flirt with each other. Rick walks in and immediately steps into the pseu...

Finally! Our favorite quasi-evil vampire is back on "The Vampire Diaries!"

Katherine rings up Damon to tip him off of Stefan and Klaus’s location. The duo is in Chicago, the place of Stefan’s old ripper days. It’s a blast from the past as we get glimpses of Stefan’s past, although he doesn’t seem to be able to remember much of it.

Back in Mystic Falls, Elena gets an early morning wake-up call from Damon broad chest. This weekend, they’re traveling to Chicago to try and get Stefan…again. On the way, Elena learns a little bit more about Stefan’s blood thirsty past through his diary entrie...

They set off on an adventure to the Smoky Mountains, where they’re hoping to come back with a plus one.

Jeremy decides to confront Matt and admit that he’s seen Vicki. He wants to hold a séance kind of thing with Matt in order to communicate with her and help her. Matt’s reluctant, but he’s on board. Him and Tyler are s...
