The CW upfronts happened in New York today. And the stars of one of the network’s most important shows, The Vampire Diaries, turned up together, but not. It was confirmed last week that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have ended their relationship. Needless to say, there were no group shots. Full Story

I know you’re out there, Matt Smith/Dr Who fans. And now you get to make out with the Ryan Gosling fans. Here they are, in Detroit on the set of Gosling’s How To Catch A Monster the other day. As you can see, Ryan is helping Matt “find the motivation”. Part of that motivation came from a total head buzz. Full Story

I suppose the signs were there -- Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough seem to be inseparable lately, single girls enjoying their freedom, just in time for summer. Now US Weekly has confirmed exclusively that Nina, like Julianne before her, is indeed officially single -- after three years, it’s over between her and Ian Somerhalder. Full Story

Here’s how Duana described Jessica Pare’s MET Gala look to me over email: “Jessica Pare. Stitches.” It is indeed funny. And it’s supposed to be fun, but not funny. Like, the desired reaction is not to be laughed at. And that’s happening here because while too many went under-punk, Pare ended up TRY Punk. Full Story

As you know, my complaint about Nina Dobrev -- who I adore -- has always been that her aesthetic is a little too... Eastern Bloc figure skater. Think ... Katerina Witt. Right? Finally a theme and an event that suits her personal style. This is exactly right. A little tacky, but sassy -- which kinda defined the 80s, so why not a throwback to Demi Moore at the Oscars in 1989? On this night it works, although, ahem, it also says everything about what I think of Monique L’huillier. Full Story

Cory Monteith completed a month of rehab last week and came home to Vancouver with Lea Michele just in time for the start of the playoffs. Here they are at Round 1 Game 1 of the San Jose Sharks vs the Vancouver Canucks last night. They put their faces up on the big screen in the first period, both tricked out head to toe in Canucks gear. Full Story

Or is this a onesie? It's Justin Bieber, on tour in Sweden the other day, grooving onto his bus with a member of his entourage like he's some kind of badass. In his mind, this was a cool move in the moment. And, I guess, his fans thought so too? Interesting the difference in perspective of what's "cool". Full Story

This may not be true by the time I land

I thought about writing this article yesterday. Eventually I decided against it because if they got into a fight, it would have been a waste of my time and then I’d have to write another article to update the situation. It is now 10:30pm ET. So far, they haven’t changed their minds yet. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds vs Will Smith

Every year a big budget movie takes a sh-t at the box office. The other day I predicted that Will Smith’s After Earth would hold that title in 2013. Sarah from Cinesnark didn’t disagree, but after the trailer for R.I.P.D. was released last week, she thinks it might be R. Full Story
