Ian Somerhalder puts himself on the auction block for charity


There’s a hoard of Vampire Diaries loyals in the world who would love to have lunch with Ian Somerhalder, and now, here’s their chance. The bonus? It’s for a very good cause.

Charitybuzz is hosting an auction that will award the highest bidder a chance to have lunch with the Vampire Diaries star in Atlanta. (Place your bid here.) All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and specifically go toward the organization’s plans to open up an animal sanctuary.

“A big component of ISF is not just habitat or species conservation, it’s animal protection and youth education,” the actor tells EW exclusively. “There are too many animals that are abused, mistreated, and abandoned. They’ve been ostracized, they have behavioral issues, and they’re starving. It’s just unbelievable what we’ve done to the animals, and I think that’s why this is so important.” READ FULL STORY

Nina Dobrev is now Conan O'Brien's favorite guest EVER. See why!

If you only watch two minutes of The Vampire Diaries‘ star Nina Dobrev’s interview with Conan O’Brien from Wednesday, it needs to be the clip below. Conan asks her to show him a yoga move, and she uses him as a human wall to do the scorpion. As fellow guest Joel McHale says, “This is awesome.” And that was before he saw where Nina put her feet.

Still, it’s the dismount we think Conan will recall most fondly — and what made him take a victory lap. Good times!  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' shocker: Who sobbed?

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, stop reading now. While you await our full recap of the rollercoaster hour (UPDATE: It’s now live!), let’s do a poll to see if 100 percent of viewers who have watched it cried.  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' poll: Which Original do you hope can't be killed?

We have three episodes of The Vampire Diaries left this season, including tonight’s Roaring ’20s Decade Dance, and by the end of them, we will know which Original is at the start of Damon, Stefan, Caroline, and Katherine’s bloodline. Whichever Original it is can’t be killed, because when an Original dies, all the vampires in his or her line follow — and we need the show to continue. So, which Original do you hope gets the pass? It doesn’t mean this character has to have actual screen time moving forward, mind you. Or that you’re condemning all the other Originals to certain death. It just means that the possibility for this one character to resurface will always exist. If you follow my recaps, you know as much as I love seeing Klaus (Joseph Morgan) tear up — and I do — I’m rooting for it to be Elijah (Daniel Gillies), who has interesting histories with both Katherine and Elena (Nina Dobrev) that I’d love to revisit, in addition to great taste in suits and the ability to make me trust him even though he likes to rip people’s hearts out. I recently took my plea to TVD exec producer Julie Plec. “Let me tell you, there’s a 25 percent chance it’s Elijah. In my heart, maybe it’s 97 percent,” she laughed, humoring me. “I don’t know.” Let’s take it to a vote below.  READ FULL STORY

Paul Wesley's 'Burt Reynolds volleyball' movie: Watch the trailer!

The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley was a guest on Live! with Kelly this morning, and he asked Ripa’s cohost, D.L. Hughley, if he remembered him. He didn’t. Wesley said he had “three phenomenal words” that might help: “Burt Reynolds volleyball.” That did it! They costarred in the 2006 film Cloud 9, which, judging from the trailer embedded below, was about Burt Reynolds turning strippers into beach volleyball players. “We were up for Best Picture,” joked Wesley, who appears to have played the ladies’ frequently shirtless trainer.  READ FULL STORY

We are 10 days away from a new episode of The Vampire Diaries, and as fans of The CW’s top-rated show proved over the weekend — when they got executive producer Julie Plec’s name trending on Twitter — they can mobilize, even on hiatus. “That’s the first time the fans have done that,” Plec said of the honor in an email to EW. “Quite a hilarious thrill, I must say.”

We asked Plec to name a few other phrases she’d love to see trend before the show’s March 15 return. Her top picks: READ FULL STORY
