For a kind of backwoods Southern town, Bon Temps is pretty flaming. Things are supposedly going to get even hotter in the third season. We already told you that “True Blood” producers cast Theo Alexander as a gay vampire who’s known as the “King Of Mississippi.” There were also rumors that our favorite gay line cook, Lafayette, would be getting his own love interest. Then the drop-dead drool-worthy Alexander Skarsgard hinted that his character, Eric, would be gettin’ it on with women AND men in the next season, but he’s not the only main character steaming things up with another dude.

The vampire obsession continues, and the cold ones have inspired yet another designer by the name of Pamela Love, who’s also known for creating “Where the Wild Things Are” jewelry for Opening Ceremony. She created this Eagle Claw necklace in bronze for Alexander Skarsgård’s “True Blood” character, Eric, to show off his prickly persona in jewelry form, and it seems there’s a desire from the public to make the necklace available to the hot-blooded masses. So, for all you vamp lovers out there, now a copper-plated version is for sale at HBO. It’s up to you to decide if you want to spend $60 on it. [Racked] Keep reading »
The skies are blue, HBO’s hit vampire show is true, and a few casting notices buzzing around the net have me cornier than springtime in December. I just can’t help myself. New characters on Alan Ball’s sexy, gruesome series, “True Blood,” probably mean new romantic interests for some of our favorite Bon Temps residents. While I personally love the idea of Lafayette finding a little romance, fans might be worried about new story lines pulling our attention away from our original heroes.
Worries be damned, I say. Here are the new faces you’ll be seeing on “True Blood” next season. Keep reading »
“True Blood” is about to get even sexier next season. I know, how is that possible? “There’s a lot of nudity,” Alexander Skarsgard (aka Vampire Eric) told RadarOnline.com. “As far as Eric goes, there’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex — with women and men! So it should be interesting.” Um, we’re going to get some guy-on-guy action? For those of us who like a little gay porn — not to mention the delectable blood-sucking sexiness of Skarsgard — this sounds tasty. [RadarOnline.com] Keep reading »
Further proof some men don’t know jack about women: Esquire magazine says chicks go bananas for vampire love stories because we lust after … wait for it … gay guys. Gay guys don’t want to be with us the way vampires can’t be with us and you know us ladies: we just want what we cannot have.
No, I’m not buying it either. Keep reading »
Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life. Even though she was a rather annoying villain (surprisingly, though, she was less annoying than Sookie Stackhouse), none of this season would have been possible without Maryann’s maenad craziness. So why not celebrate “He who comes” by dressing like his bride for Halloween? Just remember to periodically raise your arms and quiver? How to get the look, after the jump!

I’ve been obsessively watching “How I Met Your Mother” after discovering it late (super late) in the third season. Actually, I let it slip that I wasn’t watching it and then got harangued by everyone I knew for not knowing what it meant to be the married “Lily” of the group. Since then, I’ve been loving Neil Patrick Harris‘ bad Barney. His Lothario-dude, who would be a creepy, sadistic psychopath in real life, is adorable on TV as he wham-bam-thank-you-ma’ams his way through the ladies of New York. Except, this season he is adorable in a brand-new way. He’s found love with Robin, an uncomfortable, wince-inducing, awesome, making-out and having-googly-eyed-Sunday-brunch kind of love. And I love that he’s in love. Which got me thinking about all the other fictional characters that I’ve wanted to watch fall in love. Or at least get kissed. Keep reading »
Attention “True Blood” fanatics! While it ain’t exactly synthetic vampire blood, it does look a lot like the real stuff—and will supposedly give you a bit of a boost in an energy-juice sort of way. Introducing Blood Energy Potion by a company called Urban Collection: It looks like blood, has similar viscosity, shares the same nutritional composition and comes in a resealable plastic bag … just like blood! Perhaps the perfect Halloween accessory? Then again, could you actually imagine sipping this or would it totally gross you out? [InventorSpot] Keep reading »
What would happen if HBO did a spin-off of “True Blood,” only it was a half-hour sitcom called “At Merlottes”? One thing is for certain: It would be funnier than “Two And A Half Men.” [Buzzfeed
