Dracula is back and so are the scandals

Dracula's first episode was premiered on 25th October 2013 and within a month gossips and craziness engulfed it. Jonathan Rhys Meyer - the Godlike Henry VIII of Tudors - is tempting enough to attract audience, add bloodlust and sexiness of world's Original Vampire Dracula and it's an explosion.

Violence and Sex = Vampires. 
The creators of Dracula knows that and they have done everything to portray that and even though the critics and audience loved every single blood dripping, stake burning, steamy sex scenes, there will always be people who will hate it. Thus enters One Million Moms. They believe that Dracula is "extremely violent" and "extremely too graphic in too many ways". Everyone is entitled to their views but mailing L'Oreal, Revlon, Olive Garden and other companies to drop their plans to financially support the program, isn't that harassment? If on doesn't wish to watch the program they just shouldn't and if they are worried their children are watching something they shouldn't then there is this amazing new technology known as parental control, use it!

Dracula Season 1 episode 1:
Rating: 5/5

Alexander Grayson (Jonathan Rhys Meyer) is "supposedly" from America and has came to England with his wealth and technology. It goes without saying that the real reason for his arrival is vengeance and it's going to be smart and stylish war between protagonist and antagonist. 

Alexander Grayson have everything one could want so what could he need from Jonathan Harker, a journalist? 
Ans: Beautiful, innocent, lovely Mina who might be his wife or lover in her last life.

Personally, I found Dracula very refreshing. It's Gothic with contemporary touch and strong feminist inclination. It's Dracula without "Vampires are so evil" and "Women are women". This change is so drastically shown in the end of the first episode. It's mind boggling. Even if you have read Bram Stoker's Dracula, you are gonna be captured by the twists and originality of the show. Strong plot, great actors and Gorgeous clothes! Definitely must watch.

Last but not the least, the troubled artist Jonathan Rhys Meyer with his history of substance abuse. NBC decided to withheld major part of his salary to make sure that Jonathan completes the 10 episodes of the series soberly. Let's hope he doesn't overdose again and their are many more seasons to come.

My Quotes

It's a woman's curse that no matter how hard she tries she grows, she matures, she becomes old

And it's a man's curse that no matter how hard he tries he can never ever grow up!

The Vampire Diaries - Bloopers,Promo & BTS




I guess what makes the Bloopers so much funnier are the Promos. They are so sexy, so perfect. Immediately after that the wacko humane mishaps and beeps are just so much funnier. 

How come whatever Nina touches breaks?

Teens Choice Awards 2013

Date: 11th August 2013

As always Fantasy/Sci-Fi was dominated by Vampire Diaries but for the first time I wasn't drowning in Ian Somerhalder's gorgeous eyes but was completely pleasantly taken aback by Ashton Kutcher. I have never been a huge Ashton fan and the fact that he screwed up Two and a Half Man when he replaced our beloved Charlie Sheen but the speech he gave, I fell in love with him. So raw and so Frank - loved it!

I love Lucy Hale's fashion and Style but her HOSTING is ............ Torment! Jokes were not funny and Twerking was sooo unbearable, come on!

Before I get into nominations and awards lets spend few second on Fan Speculation. Ian Somerhalder presented an award and then the absolutely next award was presented by Nina. Makes you wonder why can't they just present one award together. Its not like they haven't done it before. Is friction so bad? And if that is so, it means really bad news for The Vampire Diaries Directors and Producers. How the hell are they managing a Delena season?

That's it, that's it. No more crazy fan stuff. Damn! Who am I kidding. The whole Teen Choice Awards is crazy fan stuff.

As for winners. Some were so obvious: Best Choice Movie Action - Iron Man 3 and Best Choice Movie Actor Action Robert Downey Jr. for Iron Man 3.  Romance AND Fantasy/Sci-fi movie was dominated by Breaking Dawn Part 2 with Choice Romance AND Fantasy/Sci-fi Movie, Actor Romance Robert Pattinson, Actor Fantasy/Sci-fi Taylor Lautner (If only they could have divide Bella in two parts they both could have won in novel too!), Actress Romance and Sci-fi/Fantasy Kristen Stewart and Kellan Klutz for Scene Stealer. Again, where Robert and Kristen won Liplock, Taylor Lautner won Hissy fit but for Grown Ups 2.

So Movie Awards were kinda obvious. EXCEPT Leonardo DiCaprio LOST! And I am like huh?! When I saw the nominations I almost felt pity for other nominations for being up against Leonardo but then Logan Lerman won. Not Hugh Jackman, not Ben Affleck but Logan Lerman. Seriously!

Things only worsened in Music. JUSTIN BIEBER won male artist DEFEATING Bruno Mars, Pitbull and Justin Timberlake. Little Things by One Direction won Love Song defeating MIRRORS by Justin Timberlake and Just Give me a reason by Pink ft Nate Ruess. But worst of all was Break-Up Song. Done by The Band Perry, Stay by Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko, We Are Never Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift and When I was Your Man by Bruno Mars. And who wins? COME AND GET IT by Selena Gomez. I didn't even knew that it was a break up song! The only reason I survived it was because Maroon 5 got Summer Music Star: Group and Bruno Mars Summer Music Star: Male and R&B Artist.

The only interesting and not-obvious stuff that happened in Choice Television was Lea Michele's soulful speech for her dead boyfriend Cory Monteith. Which made me realize that he was dead and they were dating. I am so out of loop *shaking my head in disappointment*.

Just last pissing annoying question. Why was Ian Somerhalder or Ian Harding were not even in nomination for Male Hottie while Justin Bieber, Chris Hemsworth and Channing Tatum were. And how the hell Harry Styles won defeating Taylor Lautner? And why is Selena Gomez Female Hottie. Whats going on Teens?

Before I break down, I take my leave and with Ian Somerhalder's beautiful smile in my mind, I am gonna calm myself. Until next Teen Choice Awards.

XOXO

Over-eating

I am bored = Let's EAT!
I am depressed = Let's EAT!
I am confused = Let's EAT!
I am waiting for so long = Let's EAT!
I got good marks = Let's EAT!
I got bad marks = Let's EAT!
I am tired = Let's EAT!

So what to do?
Get a friend. Someone you can talk to. Someone who can say, you really don't need to eat right now. And drink LOTS of water. It fills your tummy and Cleans your body.

There is nothing wrong in eating but over-eating is an issue. So call a friend :-)

XOXO

Top 5 On-Set Chemistry

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton
Lucas Scott and Peyton Sawyer

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton never dated, yet it didn't stop Fans for hoping and wishing that they do. 
Why?
Lucas Scott and Peyton Sawyer's overly dramatic, dark and broody on and off relationship was like a diabolical and twisted fairy tale. Damaged Bastard Prince saving Damsel in Distress surrounded by death. Isn't this every screwed-up not-normal teenager's fantasy?

Lucy Hale and Ian Harding
Aria Montgomery and Ezra Fitz

There are "speculations" about Lucy Hale and Ian Harding dating. Personally I think it's more of Fans' wishful interpretation of their friendship but hey! we never know. Officially - they are just very very very very good friends :-)




Emily Rose and Lucas Bryant
Audrey Parker and Nathan Wournos

Lucas Bryant is married to Kirsty Hinchcliffe while Emily Rose is married to Dairek Morgan but this doesn't stop fans to go crazy about Audrey - Nathan Romance. From the First episode they have been so in sync with each other that it's pretty hard to not-wonder if they are actually together.
Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo
Derek Shepherd and Meredith Grey

Both Dempsey and Pompeo are married though it is their Chemistry that has hooked people to Grey's Anatomy. They are just good friends and nothing "Romantic" is going on between them. Dempsey feels emotionally attached to Ellen while Ellen also feel that they are like brothers and sisters. Of course that makes it really Awkward and Gross for her to kiss and do other stuff with Dempsey. If this is how she feels then she is the GREATEST actress in the world because as an audience I always thought that Derek and Meredith are so in Love!
Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester
Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf
Why do fans think that Ed and Leigh are together? Well we don't. But if Ed would say stuff like he is Madly in Love with Leigh, it's freaking hard not to speculate. Chuck and Blair share an extraordinary relationship. Their "Dark Sides" are something all of us have come to love so if they are so good on screen one can only wish that they give it a try off screen.
XOXO
