    Ian will always have a ton of supporters and because of the show Nina will have her sect of supporters, but in terms of this relationship, Ian needs to open his eyes and stop sweeping this under the rug. He is being used.

  • So true

    I think he knows it, and behind the doors when cameras are off and they are in free from fans area she recieaves comebacks
    but they need to pretend to be on good terms in public and that is when she is using him knowing that he MUST paly along and play nice
    But yeah i agree ian is to kind with her

  • Natalie

    I wonder if anyone has noticed, when he’s on relax time, “vacation” which has been a while now, he does not even care to tweet. It’s like he’s under some sort of spell. He’ll be missing for one to five days on twitter, then all of a sudden you’ll see pictures of them together showing PDA, so that’s why. Fans are not important (not even on twitter) when they are together “in private,” but Ian does love his fans.

  • So true

    Nah i think it is not b/c of that/ Well yeah i heard that she can be quite hysterical but i really do believe that when cameras are off they might be in the same place or even in the same room but not together as together if u know what i mean
    I think that he is just worn out and don’t tweet cause he has nothing good to say when he ius near her, he is to busy protecting himself from her stunts

  • Natalie

    @So true, your statement made me laugh but I understand what you’re saying. lol

  • Natalie

    Apparently people are forgetting that Nina is an actress.

  • So true

    why laugh? the more i see them the more i think that they are just co workers who are acting to be in love in front of fans ….
    she is an actress and she is playing to be in love or u want to say that she is playing to be the bitch?

  • Natalie

    Your statement made me laugh by how you worded it, but in terms of her acting, Nina can pretend to be sad, happy, or in love at anytime or anyplace.

  • So true

    i am trying to avoid direct statments here b/c of Nian shippers who can start defending campaigne anytime, so i put the words that way for ppl who is able to understand and who can see through fanservice
    yeah Nina and Ian (btw) both can pull whatever needed whenever needed
    love,attraction,passion,sadness e/t/c
    fans wanted touchy feely moments – here we are
    but i doubt that there is smth more than perfomance for fans

  • Natalie

    They are truly obsessed, but Ian thinks it’s spectacular (nothing wrong with that, he does need the fans) but there is a point where he encourages it not realizing how aggressive they become.

  • So true

    The Nian fans are basicaly just sexually agressive teen girls or despareta housewives with failed marriage who needs a fairytale of epic love. They don’t see Ian as Ian, the see atrractive man for whom they created qualities and actions and enjoy writing stories about how Nina managed made someone like ian to fall for her and be so protective and loving e/t/c it is just an idea that pretty looks and nice smile can help to get u a man and happy ending
    fans do not see behind the scenes and reality that is why they are so aggressive, because when they forced to face the facts it hurts it ruins their sublimation
    that is why Nian rumors started even when Ian was with Meghan. Meghan is attractive gilr but she is an epithome of the fact that if u want to be with a man in long term relationship u have to have personality,intellegence and work for relationship as much as ur partner that is why there was so many b**ing about her/
    Fans created Nian in season one and that will last till the end of the show or till one of them snaps finally
    fans are aggresive they even tried to bribe receptionist at comic con to know if Ian and Nina staying at the same room!lol!
    but it is not only Iab (and even Nina) fault. Theay are actors they need their job they need the show to last so wether they like it or not they must to do this stuff to, the thing is just how far each of them ready to go
    rumors has it that Ian did put boundaries, Nina didn’t and now she is threataning to ruin the whole thing if Ian and others wont play along
    we all know that in the middle of season 2 whole cast hated her

  • Natalie

    And all I can say to that is wow, I do think he’s a good person, but I believe he’s a bit self-absorbed too and she makes him that way. I see it, when he’s at conventions, when he’s doing interviews for TVD, when he’s tweeting. I’m in the Philippines, I’m in Paris, I’m in the Philippines, I’m in Paris. Come on…

  • So true

    well u see the twitter is a public source. I think Ian is tweeting like that just to preserve more speculations
    he sometimes give hints like – alone or the season left scars on me, or smth like that, but fans ignore it and thinks that they are always right in their assumptions
    all cators are self absorbed at some level it is just a question of how deep is this self absorbed thing is
    Of course ian loves all attention he gets but it doesn’t hit his head so he is more genual person
    also he never ever in 10 years denayed that he loves the attention he was open about his attitude and reasons, he doesn’t pretend to be private or shy or someone who he isn’t
    it is just the way how vieweras / fans twists his words and actions

  • Natalie

    Yes, they really do twist him around, and sometimes ignore him completely when he’s tweeting about the environment. It’s really out of this world.

  • So true

    Nian fans are not always ian fans. They don’t care about what he cares and actually barelly understands his interview b/c one thing is undenaylable – Ian has sharp intellegence. They react only on his words about damon, delena and nina
    sad thing that they ignore a lot of things he is saying or denaying
    i can bet if they were busy helping ISF more than writing epic love bs nian would fade

  • DNACowboy

    The reason Nina is really upset is that she was insulted by French fans who declared (very bitchily supposedly) Nina wasn’t anywhere near ‘good’ enough for Ian Somerhalder.

  • So true

    FYI it was proven that rumors are fake
    no one inusulted Nina in Paris

  • Ianfan

    The rumours were fake agreed with so true. The real truth is that she is shallow and fans dont like her. Ok i understand there is those Ian crazies out there that are in lurve with him and think noone will be good for him doesnt matter if its nina or not any girl they would probably envy. What we are trying to get across is Nina is no saint, she is very self centered person. Ian is quite concited too and very much a diva, my friend knows him and apparently he is quite the attention seeker so I have been told. He is lovely guy and I dont dislike him I think what he does for the world and ISF is amazing he is passionate and good hearted which makes me wonder what the hell is he doing with Nina she must have something going as once that make up is off she isnt the most attractive woman on the planet! I have to admit when they were on the red carpet they looked stunning as a couple but reality is that she isnt very nice to him at all, the ISF empowerment con showed how self centred she was wanting to leave his own event because she didnt like the fans! Maybe she is young and hungry for fame dont know but she really has rubbed alot of people up the wrong way! Nian is good for the publicity and for the show but I dont think personally she is good for him. Apparently she is the one that got him smoking again! He quit after lost and then he met her and he started up. Sorry I just dont like her!

  • Teyla

    @chica:

    Actually, Candice and Zach broke up right after the first of the year. She moved out of their apartment and moved in with her Aunt, who also lives in Atlanta. Hopefully, they can work things out, but at this point I doubt.

    As for Ian and Nina, they are the real deal and have been for over two years. Nina was not scheduled to be at the Paris convention, but went to Paris to be with Ian. NO harm, No foul, just two people in love. They are no out there pretending to be lovers for a promotional stunt for the show. Anyone thinking that is delusional. If it was only for the show, I doubt seriously if Ian and Nina (and their families) would be spending the past two Christmas holidays together, nor would they be going to Mexico and Bora Bora for the past two New Years together. If Ian and Nina were not in love, I doubt seriously if they would be going to Hawaii for a week together for alone time after season three had finished filming. They spend as much time together as possible, even with their busy schedules because they love each other. When people speak badly of Nina, they are also hurting Ian because he loves her.

    Ian and Nina are two of the most gracious, kind hearted people I know. They overlook the vicious “haters” because there are more people that love them by the millions than the few that spew hatred.

  • Teyla

    @Natalie:

    Nice try, but Meghan was threatened by Ian’s career once he was hired for The Vampire Diaries. As far as their two year relationship, it was on again and off again, but he did love her otherwise he would not have kept trying to save their relationship. They were never engaged, they just dated, but broke up permanently around the end of February, first of March 2010. Ian and Nina started dating in mid April 2010 and have been solidly together ever since. Meghan is old news.

    Ian started the IS Foundation after the BP Oil Spill and by that time he was already in a solid relationship with Nina Dobrev. Nina is very supportive of Ian, as is he of her. They have a fantastic relationship whether people want to believe it or not.

    As for Ian and Maggie Grace, they did not start dating until after Ian left Lost. They were great friends, dated for a year, enjoyed each others company and both had a love for animals, as was seen by them rescuing the feral kittens in the jungle of Hawaii. Hence, Ian has “Moke and Maggie has “Roo”. To date, Maggie and Ian are still good friends. As for how Ian met Nicky Hilton, that was due to his friend, Jason Moore. Jason was the manager for Paris Hilton at the time and he introduced Ian and Nicky. Ian and Nicky were short lived and went nowhere. Ian and Ashley Greene were already friends and in April 2009, Ian escorted Ashley to the premier of “Twilight”. He also attended her birthday party. This took place during one of the “off” times between him and Meghan. Ian and Ashely are still very good friends. Ian was in a serious relationship with Sarah Malatesta in 2000, who like Meghan, was not in show biz, At the time, she was a college student and they met in a laundry mat.

    TVD cast in relationships:
    Paul Wesley and Torrey Devitto – Happily Married
    Ian and Nina – Solid couple for over two years and happy
    Michael Trevino and Jenna Ushkowitz
    Kat Graham and Cottrell Guidry

  • lolly

    I cant help laugh at you lot seriously so funny! Personally I dont really care about Nina and Ian, what they do is their business! But I have met Nina & sorry Nina lovers but she isnt such a nice person. We saw her at the ISF Empowerment event, you have to have been there to see what the fuss was about, she was moody and darn right rude to Ian. He tolerates her probably cause he loves her or he is doing it for the publicity who knows!

    Nian isnt all its cracked up to be, she is very mean and horrible towards him and many of the ISF ers were shocked at her outrage just because the fans were all over Ian. Ok you gonna get jealous but you have to trust and respect your bf he aint gonna jump on any of his fans the first chance he gets! She doesnt treat him right and she is mean! She left an autograph signing because she got all moody that noone turned up for her and wanted to leave half way!

    But if Ian likes it then good for him, hope they are happy!

    Nian only happened because of the Delena fans everyone wanted Delena on screen and it was an added bonus that Nian happened, i personally think is a publicity stunt but who knows right. I dont think they are the perfect couple some people probably think Ian is gay and is in denial who knows and really do we care?? I personally dont!

    I think there is something going on behind the scenes i dont think the relationship is real, there are just something not right, why did they keep their relationship hidden for so long and even when they got caught on camera at the concert holding hands they still denied rumours come on guys were not stupid! I just think if your dating then be proud be loud and tell everyone dont hide it, the fans wanted Nian so didnt understand the whole point of the big secret! Sure they want they privacy but come on your freaking celebs do you honestly think you will get any??

    Nina always looks moody in her pics with Ian the only time she looks happy is when she has the camera pointed at her take a look at her pics or when she is having a fag even those she looks pretty miserable!

    We were going to go on set when they were shooting we sat outside for ages and apparently he was all for it but she refused and said too many people on set, so he had to come out and say hello to us outside, yeah pics of him on twitter coming to greet his fans that was US! She isnt great and she is far from perfect but you know everyone has their opinion and i find it funny that everyone is giving negative feedback to people who have an opinion and are not Nina lovers just makes me laugh that your just as bad. Its called freedom of speech, respect what others have to say and people who have actually met her or been to cons and seen the proof!

    Ian is kind hearted and amazing he is so great with his fans he tweets his fans and actually trys to get involved, what does Nina do exactly??? She doesnt even tweet her fans only when she is saying thanks for all her fan mail woot bloody woot! Try interacting with your fans I agree with Ianfan – the fans MADE HER so be abit nice Miss Dobrev your not a princess! If ian knew what was best for him, he should really call it a day, she is gonna ruin his image sooner or later and she is still young she can make something of her career he is 33, what happens when the vampire diaries ends, its going to be another Charmed or BTVS all over again! Sorry Ian your fans love you but your girlfriend not so much!

  • So true

    the more i read posts of ppl who met her the more i undesrtand that when i met her it wasn’t just her bad day it was real face of Miss Dobrev and that was ugly!Now i understanmd all Ians hints about the fact that he has no time for relationship and has only business comitements.
    All ppl says that they are like oil and water. Yes opposites atrackts but their difference is to much to work out
    all that crap about vacation is fan made theories with out a proves. As i said they might be in the same place but still not be together as an item
    I think Ian tolerate her just b/c fans want him to tolerate her/ He need his fans
    Now i am sure that Nian is just fan creation and a stunt for them bot to drop the show

  • Lisa

    I’m with Lolly on this one, I dont care about Nian, I dont get it neither, I think its all a show but we dont have proof we dont know! If Ian is happy with her gf being rude and nasty to fans then so be it! Its up to him to sort her out. I havent met Ian but hoping to next month at Insurgence 4 anyone going?

    As for their relationship who knows whats real and fake eh, for we know they could be in love or they could be doing it for the fame. I agree i did find it about odd why they kept their relationship a secret and when asked on national TV if he had a gf he said the vampire diaries, at this point everyone knew he was dating nina. I just think they should have come public ages ago.

    I think Ian is being used and Nina is riding off his fame thats obvious but if he is happy with it who are we to say eh! Of course she will drop him like a sack of patatoes once she gets her fame she is young and she will eventually have guys falling at her feet and she will probably end up going off with someone closer her age who knows? Its all speculation.

    Am I a Nian fan erm No but then you will find probably half the women population arent neither purely cause she is dating him!

    Yeah I have heard from people who have met her she is moody and not really fan friendly thats her problem and for her publist to sort out, I personally do care for Nina and never have really before and after she was with Ian, i dont rate her as an actress. I think she makes Elena dull and very boring!

    I am sorry to hurt anyones feelings but guys you gonna find alot of Nian haters so you gonna have to live with it and get over it! I personally cant see Nian lasting any longer than another year.

    I say good luck to them if they last then thats great if they dont then hey I told ya so! lol

  • So true

    @Lisa:
    Lisa i totally get ur opinion
    I reread my posts and they look like i am Nian hater. Though i don’t care about them as an item or smth like that
    I just hate that when u go for ISF (not even to meet Ian but to hel his foundation)event u are forced to see how Nina behaves (as Influence affair). She treats a man who made her noticable for fans as sh!t!What kind of gf is she? I personally don’t see Ian as a man who likes to be under the heel or been controlled by a woman.
    a lot of ppl said after the event that no worries as soon as fans will be gone Nina will hear out what he thinks of her
    i read sowehere here that it is common for them to be at each other throats and during cons whan Ian talks about delena he hints that he isn’t a fan of damon to date a younger girl
    so i don’t see them in a relationship but it really annoys me that b/c of crazy fans voulanteers at ISF gets Nina as unwelcomed bonus who treats ppl like sh!t in general

  • Rayne

    I was at the EmpowerEsque event too and saw how some of the fans were misbehaving. Over zealous for sure. Kudos to Nina for getting security involved and for protecting Ian, who was suffering from a torn ACL. She did exactly what she was suppose to do. Nina was looking out for Ian. If some fans want to hate her for that, so be it. I am on her side in this one.

    For those complaining about the Chicago convention, Ian gave a two month notice that he would not be attending. Creation Entertainment came up with three guests to take his place. The Chicago convention was not an Ian Somerhalder convention, but a Vampire Diaries Convention. At the Coachella Music Festival Ian was working for his foundation and had set up three meeting over that weekend to promote The Go Green Mobile generators, of which he has a financial investment. His ISF secretary was there too, along with her fiancee. Did Ian also enjoy the music festival with Nina? Of course he did.

  • Sharon

    You know, I’ve read all 125 comments on this article and can’t believe that people are really ready to talk so negatively against a very private, very shy 23 year old young woman. I mean, really….saying all the god awful things about her? Have you actually met her, in person? Or are you all going on what other people have said?

    Let me tell you a little story….I live in Atlanta. One night, toward the end of filming this season, we went to the set to meet the stars of the show…we waited a LONG time….I think it was like 3:00AM before Ian & Nina came out. They were exhausted. They’d been on set for close to 14 hours straight, for the 3rd day in a row. It was rainy and the weather was miserable. But you know what they both did? They came over, spoke with us, signed autographs, took pictures & talked with us for a little while. They didn’t ignore us and walk on like some of the other cast members did. No, both of them came over, after working such grueling hours, and was as nice & sweet as they could possibly be to us. Then, after about another 45 minutes to an hour of signing autographs, taking pictures and chatting with us, they went home, together. Nina was a part of all this and was just as gracious, and just as sweet as Ian was.

    I’m a big fan of both of them. I’m also extremely happy that Ian & Nina are together, as a couple. I don’t believe for one second that this is a photo op to promote TVD, I mean really people, Damon/Elena hasn’t happened on the show, Elena chose Stefan……I believe that these are two people, who are in a romantic relationship, who are trying to spend what little time they can together, before they have to go back to the grueling schedule of filming TVD……you’d think people would just be happy for them and move on.

  • Natalie

    Let me begin with @Teyla, a source of massive amounts of information (must be family or friend or crew.)

    I’m almost surprised you did not tell me the exact dates. Who needs the paparazzi when they have you? You can’t possibly have all that useless information in your head. That has to be written in a book somewhere. So Ian and Nina went Mexico together? Well blow me down… And Bora Bora, well isn’t that spectacular, but as I recall he was silent for a few days (forgot all about his fans you included) then all of a sudden tweeted “Skinny dipping with sharks.” I need to do some skinny dipping myself minus the “sharks,” of course.

    Furthermore, I’m fully aware of Megan’s issues with the fan base. When I first saw it I did not understand her reaction to them, but let me tell you, I certainly know why now.

    Ian and Nina can go anywhere they want, they have the finance to support it and they are together right? At the end of the day Ian will always try to maintain his image as the most outstanding man in the world.

  • Natalie

    @Rayne, So the fans were “misbehaving,” my hand is over my mouth, I’m in shock. This truly has to be a first for the TVD family. Yes, we were aware he hurt himself doing stunts and Nina, oh sweet Nina had to call in the big guns to protect him, because the fans (who spent a large sum of money and did not receive what they were promised) would have knocked him over, trampled on him and killed him. Then that would surely bring an end to TVD, and a bold news headline of “Sexy Beast Somerhalder, wasn’t beastly enough to keep his fans inline and was killed at his own Empoweresque event.”

    Yes we can’t forget about Coachella, where Ian was doing the ground work for ISF, and feeling up Nina’s backside for the eager cameras.

  • Natalie

    @Sharon you actually read all 125 comments? Isn’t a great discussion off of twitter? Man top notch; let me tell you. Both sides of a story not just one, all Nian and Delena based. This is very good, what’s happening here right now.

    Nina is “a very private, very shy 23 year old young woman.” I never got that vibe from her, I mean, if she can pose naked and semi-naked for EW, she’s not shy at all, Moreover she was extremely proud about it, but I guess that was just work.

    She’s indeed really private, I never know when she’ll do some shopping, baking, dressing up, having her hair styled or nails done, or spending time with her mom or her friends, or when she has her backside felt up while on stage at the MMVAs. That’s really hard info to get your hands on.

    Nian actually came out in bad weather after work at 3am, when the other cast members left, to sign your autographs? This had to be something new to them. Ian really does love his fans and he has Nina with him. How would it look, after work, you guys are there and they pay no mind? They need you all to keep supporting their relationship and the show, but I must add you are some truly dedicated fans. Really bad weather, and you guys are standing out there in the cold, waiting? That is true devotion. No difference between you really, and the other fans that love everything to do with Ian.

  • one girl

    @Rayne:

    I understand he had other things come up, but it looks bad on him and his people that he was at coachella the same weekend as chicago when he committed to chicago last july. aka 9 months in advance… yes they had 3 other guests come in his place. But all those guests had busy schedules as well and still managed to steal a few hours to come to chicago and be with the fans

  • Rayne

    @Natalie:

    The fans were not given what they were promised which was …. what ??? The expectation of time alone with Ian for hugs, kisses and a make out session just for them? They would truly be silly to expect that. The gift bags that were stolen by the fans that crashed the upper level area, which is why Nina went to security to begin with? Ian paid for a security detail to be on hand to make sure the different levels of tickets purchased were not compromised. Apparently the security team did not do their job because Nina noticed there were more people in that area than there was suppose to be. The room became too crowded and “yes” there were many of his friends and other attendees that were concerned for Ian’s knee. He was in a lot of pain the whole night, but tried not to show it. Kim Klinger, ISF Executive Director, sent out a notice to contact her and she would make sure the gift bags were sent to people that did not receive theirs. The amount of money that was spent was for a charity event? … charity means giving without an expectation of something in return. Apparently there was a group of fans that went to the Empoweresque fundraising charity event that did not understand the concept of what charity means. Considering at 9pm the event was only for 21 and older, I would think that Ian, as the host, would not have to keep his fans inline. At age 21 and up, they should be able to handle themselves in an appropriate and respectful manner, but apparently some were not. I went (did not dress in burlesque) to his fundraiser to have a good time, which I did, and to support Ian and his foundation, but I would have been just as willing to write a check in the same amount as my ticket as a charitable gift without attending. My gift bag was taken too, but I understood what had happened and did not make a fuss over it, nor have I held a “grudge” over it. To do that would be petty. While some of these fans that had enormous expectations for themselves and felt like Ian should be indebted to them somehow because they attended his “charity” event, decided to take their anger and frustration out on Nina because she was the easiest target. Suddenly she was being called the “bitch” that interfered with them getting their way, which resulted in the rumors that were spread about her that night. Nina never yelled at Ian, nor did she ever act like a “bitch” to anyone, nor did she stomp out of the event. That is all lies just to destroy her reputation. Nina left with the other cast members and rode a shuttle bus back over to the Eyecon. Ian stayed behind for a little while longer and continued to be a host as his guests were leaving. After that Ian, Nina and the other cast members that supported him by attending his charity event all went out for a bite to eat and friendly conversation.

  • Rayne

    @one girl:

    I don’t see how that reflects badly on Ian at all. It would be different if it was an Ian Somerhalder event, but it wasn’t. It was a Vampire Diaries fan convention. Ian gave a two month notice that he would not be able to attend, which gave Creation Entertainment plenty of time to get replacements. In reality it doesn’t matter why he cancelled, it just meant there was a scheduling conflict, which is why the event planners have a disclaimer regarding their guests may have scheduling conflicts. How Creation Entertainment or Eyecon handle refunds to the attendees is totally up to them, but before purchasing tickets I would definitely read their refund policies. Jensen Ackles just cancelled his fan convention too. It happens. While it is nice that the actors want to come to these fan conventions, they are not obligated to do so. Ian has only cancelled two USA fan convention events over a three year period and unfortunately they were both handled by Creation Entertainment this year. Overall, that is a pretty good record. The first year a fan convention was held in England both Paul and Ian had to cancel due to the filming of TVD. Paul had to cancel out on the Atlanta Dragon con twice due to scheduling conflicts. I don’t think any of the TVD cast deliberately want to disappoint any of their fans, but sometimes things come up and schedules have to be adjusted. I certainly don’t take it as a personal insult although it is disappointing if a favorite actor has to cancel, but that is the risk one takes in purchasing tickets to these events. There are no guarantees.

  • Natalie

    @Rayne I’m truly loving this moment when someone explains charity to me and I’m also loving your explanation to me about security detail. It’s a good thing I have some experience in both so I know how this works. In any case you have some direct contact with Nian, and their associates so your point of view will be different from the rest.

    Now you’re saying that 21 year olds and up should know how to carry about themselves with Ian, Really? 21 year olds? With Ian who does lewd gestures, talks sex in the presence of a children but then catches himself and apologizes, but does it over and over again? And I’m not even surprised that things were stolen, this is the TVD family we are talking about, but I agree with you though, they should be more mature and behaved.

    Alright, rumours were spread about Nina’s behaviour when she was being all kind and sweet and just looking out. Funny thing is rumours on a whole are nothing new within this group of people, but I suppose you were with Nian ever second of Empoweresque to know what was taking place between them, but you seem level headed so I’ll go with your version for the time being.

    There is one thing you need to understand however, we know that was a fundraising event, and we know the principle of charity. We know Ian is not well, but people paid their money (whether it is was $50, $300, $1000 whatever) and were told of certain level of service which they did not receive. Money will always have value charity or no charity, and people will always gravitate towards an organization which they believe will give them the most satisfaction, whether that satisfaction is simply knowing that they helped someone, or satisfaction in getting back a certain level of gratitude for their donation.

    Even the most famous love the attention of everyone knowing they gave to a charity. They love the comments they receive, “you’re selfless,” “thank you, your donation will go along way,” “your too kind” and Ian is no exception to this rule. So do not be upset with the folks who want to be acknowledged for just showing up at Empoweresque. They did not have to buy tickets; they could have left his event high and dry with just you to write a cheque.

    I don’t think nina is shy! Do you see the video at conan O’ Brien?

    Guys look at ourselves we are all bickering because of celebs come on! Havent we got anything better to do? Ok so everyone is gonna have their opinions some love Nian some hate Nian noone is gonna agree we just have to agree to desagree.

    I have stong reservations about the relationship but you know what Ian is a big boy and I am sure he knows what he is doing. If its publicity stunt or not do we really care? All i have to say is that I wish them the best of luck in whatever they decide to do and if it works great if not then I am sure the Nian fans will get over it!

    I am personally not a Nian fan but you know what its not for me to say I dont really care who the guy dates. I respect his work and I think he does a great job helping others, so give the poor guy some credit! Nina I have heard alot of mixed stories about her some say she is nasty some say she is nice who knows what the real deal is with them two and to be honest I dont think we ever will!

    I watch TVD because I like the show not because I am crazed Ian fan, I follow and support his foundation because I believe in the cause and I help anyway I can!

    I respect everyones opinions and some I agree with some I dont but my opinion everyones here isnt gonna change the fact that they are together is it?

    We should all suck it up and just wish them the best of luck!

  • chick2508

    can I also say @Natalie you are so funny I love you! High five girl! I wish there were more people out there like you! Honest and straight to the point! xo

  • Natalie

    @chick2508 Lol thanks, appreciated your comment also.

    @Sharon:

    You couldn’t have said it better!!
    There are some sad & bitter people here. Why bash them? It makes no sense to do so. If they make each other happy then good for them!

    I may not like some other couples/actors/actresses mentioned here on this site but I don’t go and type out negative comments. If you don’t like the topic, ignore it & go find a topic you do like and comment on that.

  • lolly

    Whoever said Nina was shy haha that comment made me laugh! The woman stripped off naked in EW magazine and then she does this handstand yoga crap on some show. If thats shy I hate to see what isnt! lol

    @Natalie RESPECT! I hear you and your views are great!

    Noone here is personal friends of Ian and Nina so come on get over yourselves and stop acting like you know them both! We dont know what goes on behind closed doors. But these pics of them dont do their relationship any justice as she looks miserable as hell!!

    @So true: How in the world do you dream up this rubbish? What is up with this campaign to ruin a young woman’s reputation by spreading rumors and ill conceived notions about her?
    The cast and crew do not “hate” Nina. She is funny and cute on set. Does she get tired after being on set after 14 hours straight? Yes she does. Does she get tired of shooting the same scene for 6 hours straight all of the sake of correct lighting. Yes, she does. Does the cast and crew look forward to Nina’s homemade cookies and desserts? Yes, they do. Ian is not pretending to be in love Nina all for the sake of TVD. That is ridiculous. He loves her because of who she is. Nina is not hateful and nasty to Ian. If she was, he would not be with her. To even think that is pure nonsense. If it was all for the sake of TVD, I don’t think Ian would be spending Christmas with her and uniting his family and hers together. I don’t think Ian would be going with Nina to Mexico for New Years one year and then to Bora Bora the next New Year if he did not love her. I don’t think Ian and Nina would have spent a week in Hawaii together if he did no love her. . I don’t think Ian would have taken his mother along on vacation to Paris last year with Nina and her mom if he did not love her. I don’t think Ian would arrange a Valentine’s “weekend” nature get-away at a small community resort for the two of them in a remote area near Atlanta if he didn’t love her. I don’t think Ian would be leaving Paris and going to the French countryside for a few day with Nina if he did not love her. I don’t think Ian would have taken Nina to the emergency clinic when she injured her head on set during filming if he did not love her. I don’t think Ian would be sitting in the waiting room at the dentist’s office while Nina was having her wisdom teeth removed if he did not love her. Overall, I don’t think Ian would be spending the amount of time he does with Nina if he did not love her, nor would Nina be spending the amount of time with Ian if she did not love him. Their relationship has nothing to do with TVD. They are two people that met and fell in love. It is just as simple as that.

  • So true

    @Natalie:
    my greatest respect for ya girl! and tyanks for not to shy to tell the truth or not popular opinion here

    @Teyla:
    what fanpage did u read to make that comments as a statement of truth?
    Were u with Ian when he did all those things? no!
    but thre are a lot and i tell u a lot of ppl who saw different things but were shuted up by aggresive Nian shippers!
    for a start/ Yes Ian and Nina was together at Bora Bora at vacation (i asume payed by CW) but they lived separately! and there are at least 15 ppl who can state that, but they were called as haters and bushed all over the web
    evryone knows that Nina was alone at the dentist
    As for Idiho resort. Half of the cast were there too/
    Paris with Moms…well thx to the coutresty of drunken cousin whole Toronto knows that CW asked mama Dobrev to come to Paris with Nina after they rescheldued Ninas photoshoot for TEENvogue to Paris so she would be there same dates with Ian
    as for France countryside, there are brucnch of ppl who saw Ian with a girl but not Nina last two days in France. They were called delusional haters and oh wow as soon as cat is out of the bag Ians father gives a hint that there is relationship between Ian and nina
    they show PDA or love only when somekind of award or season finalle is upcoming
    as for hartred towards Nina. try to talk to a crew not to the cast or beter to cateters they don’t have nothing to lose or to get
    some crazy fans who wanted jucy details went to them in Atl but in a result instead of epic love they found out that there is nothing but Ian tolerance to her and the fact that he is the only one on the set who can shout louder than Nina
    Nian era is over!Only really crazy fans still believe in it and both Ian and Nina will do everythung to keep it up, but as soon as fanbase will have a downfall Nian will end

  • one girl

    @Rayne:

    correct it’s not a personal insult, just disappointing. Thank you those are the words I was looking for

  • Teyla

    @So true: This is pure RUBBISH! You have no idea who I am, or what capacity my facts come from.

  • Natalie

    @lolly @So true Thanks. This thing is full of fluff and is over done which gives Ian a swell head.

  • Teyla

    @So true: BTW: What could possibly make you assume that the CW Network would pay for Ian and Nina’s trip to Bora Bora during the Christmas/New Years hiatus? What would make you think that 15 people were in Bora Bora and visually saw Ian and Nina in separate living arrangements? I know for a fact that is not true. I’m also sure that they did not have separate quarters in Hawaii either. Also, what would make anyone think the CW network would care if Nina’s mom was at a Teen Vogue photo shoot in Paris? Courtesy of a drunken cousin in Toronto? That alone should put it to rest. Mama Dobrev wasn’t even in Toronto at the time, she flew from Turkey to Paris. The CW network’s marketing team is only interested in the promotion photo shoots that represent the show. Also, there is the Warner Brothers Studio Mondo photo shoot in Los Angeles. The fashion photo shoots are handled between the designers, magazines and the actor’s managers/PR agents. If the actor wants to take the job, then they will. Coming from the modeling world, Ian is in great demand for photo shoots. His connections within the industry has definitely helped Nina quickly become a fashion icon. Nina can go from being the most beautiful/best dressed on the Red Carpet at any event to the girl that straps on a backpack and boots to go hiking with Ian in the Georgia mountains. Everyone knows Nina was alone at the Atlanta dentist office while getting four impacted wisdom teeth extracted? Who is everyone? I know for a fact that is not true and that Ian was sitting in the waiting room. Once he got Nina back home and settled in, he did go to the set later on in the early evening for filming. Half of the TVD cast were staying with Ian, Nina and their families at the Somerhalder retreat in Sun Valley, Idaho at Christmas? Seriously? I think not. I don’t know who is feeding the information that Ian was not with Nina in the French countryside after they left Paris, but that is wrong information. Ian was not with another girl, but that was a nice try. Considering I live and work in Atlanta there is no need for me to talk to the TVD crew or the caterers that service the TVD/Bonanza Production studios in Decatur, GA. I’m pretty sure none of them would spout off Nina “hate”. As for who yells the loudest on the set, I am betting it is the TVD director.

    Clothes does make the man (or woman in this case), especially when you have the aid of professionals.

  • Jessie

    @Sharon: That is so true! Fans do come from all across the country and Internationally to visit Covington, GA. and have high hopes that they will get to see their favorite actors. If filming is taking place in and around Covington, GA it is not unusual for fans to hang out until filming is completed no matter how late. “Yes”, Ian and Nina are always gracious and engaging to their fans no matter how late they pack up to leave. When filming is taking place in and around the Covington Square it is not unusual at all for fans to bring lawn chairs and sit on the side lines. During breaks Ian and Nina never miss an opportunity to meet and greet the fans. Anyone working or living in Covington knows this to be true. Sometimes it is a hassle, but the show has been great for businesses on the square, especially “Scoops”. The TVD cast loves that place. Ian’s favorite is the banana pudding ice cream. Oh! One other thing, I live in Covington, Ga just off the square and have the opportunity to watch the outdoor filming that takes place at the Gilbert house and the Forbes house. Anyone that thinks Ian and Nina are not a couple, are very wrong. Those two could not possibly be more joined at the hip. The night they filmed the episode 1912 they brought in dump trucks full of dirt to cover the street in front of the courthouse, but cleaned it all up before morning. They wanted the authenticity of how the courthouse looked in 1912. The set up crew is amazing. Did not mean to go on and on and you may not even have a chance to read this, but I did want to let you know that what you said about the fans is very true and about Ian & Nina too. Glad to hear that you had the experience of meeting Ian and Nina, but sorry it was on such a miserable rainy night.

  • Natalie

    @Jessie Ian favourite ice cream is banana pudding, OMG that is so awesome. I love bananas, really good for the bowels.

    “The night they filmed the episode 1912 they brought in dump trucks full of dirt to cover the street in front of the courthouse, but cleaned it all up before morning.” There seems be a lot of dirt around this group so this is no surprise.

    And Ian and Nina are more joined at the hip, I’m guessing this a conjoined twins thing, join at the hip and not the head. hmmm Oh well…

  • lolly

    Ok I am seeing every comment I know that for a fact? Ok how do you know, do you personally know Nian oh thats right you are all stalkers?? come on without solid evidence who knows what happened. But we all know a celebs life isnt always as peachy as everyone thinks!

  • So true

    @Teyla:
    You are right i don’y know who you are and where you coming from. You are saying that you are coming from Atl/GA/USA and use the names of companies related to TVD which u can find in internet (i meqan that this info is public) and miss a helluva lot details.
    I know that i have a degree in psychology and in social media. And i do know how promoter works, I never denayed my interest at ISF and underlined that i do not care about Nian thing or whom else ian is using on/off set for his sexual release after stressfull days
    What i know is that Nian fans always saying the same facts which they practically created on their own twisting facts and words of actors. Also all Nian defenders have the same speach learnd by heart with the same points. But those who dare (brave ones) to disagree and really saw smth different always have different facts and different stries with the common point though. And you know what it means? It means that the chance that the ones who saw not epic love saw the truth b/c in reality nothing is perfect,nothing in this life looks and happens as in the books
    Also i may add that all stories about meeting Nian are always related to moments when both of them were on their acting duty or related to TVD events when actors has to behave is was written in their contracts
    CW is well known in industry as a chanel who builds the show around the show because it is a best way to hook the fans
    As for Bora Bora payed by CW you all have proves for that but chose to ignore it. Nina on her private NY vacation did photoshoot to promote the company who helped her to ger diving certificate and a hotel web which is partners of CW where all actors are staying with discount during their trips. You call this private NY vacation i name it as payed vacation with work related shoots
    Same goes for Paris. Ninas clothes from Paris 2011 was used in episodes of TVD in season 3 but fans are so obsessed with Nian that chose to ignore or twist the info
    I read somewhere here but also heard it from friends who worked at Coachella that ian was drunk. Btw a lot of ppl tweeted it to, that Ian was drunk and all hugging was b/c he barely stood stright.and that Nina was trying to jump him
    I don’t know if it is true or not (i’m not you i do not state that all the fact i’m writing is absolute) but the thing is that ppl who goes to Coachella are barely crazy fans and if this info had poped out it does prove that Coachella pics are not what everyone think they are (btw Ians body language proves a lot more than that but it is irrelevent right now)
    I have so much more to say but i don’t see the point actually
    Nian fans are zombied by good ole media tehnique b/c of their need in fairytale/ So let it be
    Ppl who are able to see the facts and does met them in reality aside from TVD related stuff will tell u an opposite story
    But what the fact is, that when ppl are hiding\protecting their relationship even crazy stalkers can barely get any info (Paul and Torrey, zach and candice, Michael and his girl), no one knew until drunken incedent in Atl after season 2 wrap party that Nina had a fling with Trevino during season 1 and CW folks did a lot of damage controll to hide this cat back in the bag
    my point is, that whole Nian relationship are so followed and oh so much fit to a fan expectation that it really look staged
    and reading ur description of them it is obvious that you use physicla looks of both Ian and Nina then create your own personal traits put them on them and live in your happy bubble
    It is your choice
    I’ll repeat myself once again i don’t care about how long Nian charade will go on, I start to believe that they are not even co workers with benefits (to much shows about it and to hard CW ppl try to prove overwise)
    i care for the fact that Nina does damage to Ian career and to ISF
    I did met Nina i did saw her behavior during Inas important event (btw hey there Jared u’re a good dancer) and as much as i understand that despite all good things Nina and Ian are rivals for fan support b/c if smth goes wronge they need each own fan base not only Nian shippers who will grew up eventually, so as i said as much as i understand that i do not agree with behavior which ruins somebodies career when that somebody is helping u with urs
    why people who wants to help with ISF are forced to deal with unwelcomed bonus Dobrev who still cannot properly answer about ISF
    she doesn’t know what ISF doing and how it works it was obvious during Influence affair
    so, either be a good actress and ad some more text to learn or leave Ian alone in ISF, Nian fansetrvice charade is enough
