Over the past few years, the words “summer television” have come to mean one thing to me: “True Blood.” More specifically, making Bloody Marys and watching “True Blood” with friends, so we can all swoon at the sexy parts and gasp at the shocking moments in unison. So I am pretty thrilled that season four of the show will be starting on June 26. Not so much longer to wait! Plus, the preview promises more of Joe Manganiello and his hair-free muscles. Which will help with the patience part. Keep reading »
Ryan Kwanten might be a blubbering hottie slash wannabe cop on “True Blood,” but in real life, he’s kind of heroic. On Friday night, he was driving in his car in Hollywood when he saw a man in the middle of the road who was bloody and unable to move. “No one was doing anything,” a witness says. “[Ryan] pulled up, saw the man down, jumped out of his car, and raced over to see if he could help.” Apparently, Ryan shouted for help and with several others, moved the man to the sidewalk. He stayed with him until an ambulance arrived. And you thought it was his six pack that was impressive? [PopEater]

There are very few people I hate in this world, but the person who decided to give DirecTV first-run rights to the final season of “Friday Night Lights” is on my permanent s**t list. Knowing that there are people out there who have already seen how things end up for Coach and Tammy Taylor, Buddy Garrity, and, most importantly, Tim Riggins, before me keeps me awake at night. Or it used to. This weekend, I managed to hunt down the entirety of “FNL” season five on this great thing called THE INTERNET and promptly fell down a Dillon, Texas k-hole. I don’t want to give much of anything away (and urge “FNL” fans who do have DirectTV and have seen the show’s final season to do the same), but I will tell you that while I’m disappointed Riggins, so far (I just finished episode three), does not have much screen time, I am hot for a new member of the East Dillon Lions. Meet Grey Damon, ladies. Keep reading »
I am in “True Blood,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Mad Men” withdrawal. These are my favorite shows on television, but each of their new seasons is a ways away, leaving me with episodes of “The Bachelor” that just don’t quite scratch the itch. Sigh. Well, on Saturday, there was a tribute to “True Blood” at the Paley Center in Los Angeles that brought together creator Alan Ball and 16 of the show’s cast members. Entertainment Weekly was on hand and eked out some spoilers of what we should expect in season four, come June. Check them out after the jump.

While I think we’d all love to be Bill’s bitch, there’s a perfectly good explanation for these tees.“True Blood” studs Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard just competed against each other in the Battle Of The Fangs, a fundraiser for Gulf Aid and SOS Children’s Villages. Together they raised $70K, yay! But Team Bill edged out Team Eric by a mere $892. So, Alex’s T-shirt got made because he wound up on the bottom, er, losing the bet. FYI: Moyer’s T says “I Like My Bitches Blonde.” Ha! Anyway, boys, I have an idea. Next time, how about you go shirtless for charity? [L.A. Rag Mag] Keep reading »
Wondering what to get me for the holidays this year? Here’s the perfect gift: Queen Sophie-Anne’s mansion from “True Blood.” The gorgeously ornate house with ocean views is easily my favorite set on the show because of its old-world decadence. And now the actual house is for sale. Sadly, the abode isn’t in Louisiana—it’s in Malibu—and it costs a pretty penny. Seventy-five million dollars to be exact. But hey, I’m worth it, right? Plus, the 20,000 square foot house comes complete with an indoor pool where I could swim laps and a lion sculpture found at the base of Mount Vesuvius. Now just get me Queen Sophie-Anne’s wardrobe and her ability to never age, and we’ll be good to go. [NY Post] Keep reading »
