    Jared, you tease. That’s hardly what I want to see when you say Ian Somerhalder is shirtless. Still, any Ian is better than no Ian at all. (Sighs.)

    This guy is soooooo annoying. Only time he tweets is when he wants votes for something or to Thank whoever gives him stuff free like a car, clothes, etc. Btw, this season of that vampire show is the WORST. Never should have had him get together with his girlfriend. The show is ruined.

    @karen: Spoken like a true Stelena fan that has no idea of what it takes to run a charity foundation. It is never shameful to say “thank you” to those that help.

    @TeylaW: Why do you DELENA BULLIES always assume that when someone has a comment about Ian we are “Stelena’s”? You Delena’s have contributed to ruining this show with your continued bullying of any other fans of other character on that show. Newsflash, their are other actors on that show that volunteer their time and money for GREAT causes.

    TeylaW Says:

    @karen: If you were not a “Stelena” why would you care if Ian and Nina, as Damon and Elena were put together on the show. Would it ruin the show if Stefan and Meredith were put together on the show considering Paul and Torrey are married? Ian and Nina’s private lives have nothing to do with TVD. anymore than Josh Dallas and Gennifer Goodwin dating have anything to do with their characters of Snow White and Prince Charming on Once Upon A Time, or Josh Bowman and Emily Van Camp characters on Revenge. Newsflash: Ian is the only actor on the show that started his own Charitable Foundation. As for the other actors on the show, Yes, they are involved and promote their favorite charities

    karen Says:

    @TeylaW: Since they’ve been together on the show the ratings have gone DOWN. Ratings speak for how much those two together have ruined the show. Delena’s are constantly ranting and raving how they are the MAJORITY. Yet, since Ian and Nina got together the viewer’s have left. I could care less about the show now. What I used to like about the show was it was about The vampire diaries, meaning all the characters. Now it’s just the Ian and Nina show. Looks like after season 5 the show will be gone.

    TeylaW Says:

    @karen: The show has always been based on the three main characters of Damon, Elena and Stefan. The ratings have not gone down due to Delena because as of yet, they are not a true couple on the show anyway. Instead it is the constant tease of making them a couple. If the Delena fans have left, I would imagine the “tease” of Delena is what caused the exit. However, the Nielsen boxes are antiquated because viewers watch the show by other means than live viewing based on whoever has a Nielsen box in their home. TVD gains the highest ratings through the social networks. The TVD episode that had the lowest live viewing rating from season past also was the most downloaded episode. Before spewing lies, perhaps it would be best to get the facts.

    karen Says:

    Go on ANY vampire diaries site, or Hollywood life, here, etc. The Delena’s are still watching and as usual complaining oh and and very few of the other characters fans. The MAJORITY of TVD’s fans have left because of the show turned into the Delena Diaries. You sound like one of those angry “always have to be right Delena’s”. I look forward to the Original’s getting their own show. I also hope that the rest of the cast move on to other shows or move to the big screen. That way you “Delena’s” can watch the former vampire diaries and now the Delena Diaries.

    TeylaW Says:

    @karen: I’m not sure why you keep referring to me as a “Delena bully” when nothing in any of my responses have said that. I am a supportive fan for Ian and Nina, but as far as the show is concerned I consider myself as a TVD fan and a Damon fan, which does not mean “Delena”. I am still not sure if Elena is the right girl for Damon. Damon and Elena are fictional characters. Ian and Nina are real people.

  25. 25
    karen Says:

    Instead of discussing my comment you called me a “Stelena”. Every time anyone says anything against Ian or talk about other characters on the show or do not like the Elena and Damon hook up they are called a Stelena. That is why you are without question a Delena. Like I said Delena’s have seriously contributed to the downfall of TVD’s. You guys have made it impossible for people to enjoy this show. Every single episode is ALWAYS brought back to Delena. Fans have NEVER been able to watch and enjoy the show because YOU DELENA’S whine, cut up and run down EVERY OTHER CHARACTER ON THE SHOW. Like I said, enjoy the Delena Diaries. Fans like myself have moved on.

    @karen: I think you by far are pretty much one of the very few that believe that…I am not a Delena I am just Team Damon….and really…if you do not get why he posts about his foundation on his twitter all the time…you are clueless…what he is doing is very smart…it is a social network what he posts is seen by millions….why hate on someone? what is the point? If you do not like Ian so much…Be mature and stay away from posts that are about him….

    I’ve read somewhere that the original writer of the book wanted to make Delena the end game but then he got fired buy the producer?.

    GAgirl Says:

    The article isn’t about Delena or TVD in general. Seriously ppl, this man is so much more than Damon. So sad u see only this one small part of what he is doing. He is worth much better fans

    Pink13 Says:

    Have you guys totally forgotten that “The Vampire Diaries” are based on the BOOK series? The producer takes stuff from the book and makes it into an Episode. It has nothing to do with Ian and Nina dating! Don’t you guys know that if a TV show is based on a book you have to follow what is says on the BOOK?

    Allie Says:

    Loved him on Lost but he needs to move on from VD. Also, he needs to seem less desperate for CG, it’s almost sad. i just dont see it though since his film career failed a few years back and they would never trust him for such a franchise. His imdb is kind of empty too. The bearding is sad too in 2013. We’ll all love him no matter who he is.

  35. 35
    GAgirl Says:

    i know the bearding is sad but this time the fact that he is bearding for her is somehow noble, if she comes out it will be the end before her career even begins.
    Read the new intereview he has so amazing personality and such incredible intellegence. That man is not only talanted but very clever.

    just because you do not like a person you do not need to wish evil or the end of her career .. shame!

    He's so hot! Says:

    Lol! This is so funny! Ian and Nina have nothing to with any problems the show is having. That would be writers, directors, producers. To me the acting is the same as ever. No better, no worse. If the story was better I’d like it more. The tension between the three main characters is the much the same to me. As for Ian’s charity work goes he is very dedicated to them and wants to raise money. Getting the word out and creating buzz is crucial. I respect his dedication and conviction.

    One Says:

    Why so much hate because someone thinks differently?Ian looks ok, works ok actually thinking ok, but not as fatal as it represents.Perhaps he was given more importance than it really deserves.There’s so much more beautiful, younger than him.He is an average man who knows how to use its features.It’s nice that you like, but to say so ugly .. why?

    sammy Says:

    Seriously now your saying she is gay?? Come on people I am not a Nina fan but thats just cracked me up! Many have said Ian is gay whats next?

    Funny how a cover magazine shoot turns into a Nina and Ian witch hunt just makes me laugh!

    I for one am not a Delena lover think that them as a couple is boring I am more for katherine and damon or maybe the salvatores should just move on and find someone new, i for one like that Elena is gonna cause some major riot now that her humanity is off!

    Sorry totally off topic there :)

    As I said I dont like Nian or not a huge fan of Nina but I wouldnt say she was gay, Ian as much as I love him and think he is amazing, I do feel for him cause I think no matter who he dates people are still gonna hate on her.

    Solari Says:


    Actually Nina is his girlfriend they’ve been dating since season 3 I believe and was at one point talking marriage..but I agree with the rest of your the way they’re not annoyed with Ian they’re jealous!!

    why an article about Ian resulted to the Nian thing is beyond me..
    Ian is really nice with what he does for the animals, he seems clever and a nice guy. (and he is hot as hell).
    As for the show itself i will aggree with sammy. Come on! Two handsome guys like Damon and Stefan should just move on. Damon is a lot funnier when he is not whipped, same goes for Stefan. And two brothers should not fight for a woman.
    As for his twitter….if you don’t like or understand what he is trying to do unfollow him and don’t read about him. He seems very dedicated to what he does with the charity work. I admire that to him.
