    he even forgot to sh.t!!

    she looks like 30/ 35 not 26..

  • monica

    What I find disturbing is that Nikki uses every possible charities to promote herself; her fans are like “you’re so wonderful to use your fame to do so much for our world”, come on !! Actually charities do so much for her fame! If she wouldn’t attend these events, if she would’nt date a celebrity, she wouldn’t be featured in magazines at all as she doesn’t have a great career, nothing obliges her to speak about her involvements a lot of people who are volunteers don’t ;

    Nikki is just stunning and a natural beauty. It is no wonder Ian is in love with her. They have so much in common and they are both so passionate and sincere in making the world a better place. Their tireless efforts to end animal cruelty and help abandoned animals is admirable. Ian’s foundation provides a grant for animals needing medical care. Ian was with Nikki at the Wildlife Waystation photo shoot. There are pictures to show that he was there too. Heather Seidler, Editorial Director of LADYGUNN Magazine was there too and had this to say on her Instagram:

    “Ian gettin all up in nature @iansomerhalder This is how we do a cover shoot @iamnikkireed Those 2 swooners are just pure magic to be around #iansomerhalder #nikkireed #bts #ladygunn” #wildlifewaystation

  • monica

    What was I saying? Enjoying charities to get featured into magazines

  • theonlyandoneme

    Exactly my point, and she’s using the fact that Ian is way more famous than her to promote herself even more. There are many unknown heroes over there, policemen, firemen… Politicians and people like us. People who makes much more than her… And deserves all the praising.
    What Nikki has that we don’t have? Famous contacts, and plenty of money. What disturbs me even more is Ian’s fans who doesn’t see how weird and fast this relationship is. Ian could do a hideous thing, and they would praise him, hoping to get his attention.

  • monica

    Ian doesn’t see it himself, how is it possible?! …though is a smart guy down to earth, I mean so far; I totally understand that he needs to b…. date someone, but keep it for what it is Ian!!

  • Tara J

    What is the point of this post, and these pics? A dozen pics of this woman leaving an animal sanctuary, drinking coffee? They clearly called the paps, because they’re not a big enough deal for paparazzi to follow them wherever they happen to go and wait around. The E! article is clearly more PR planted nonsense with mysterious ‘sources’ and the same lines they keep using. Ugh.

  • karl

    SHE looks like 40 years old woman.She does drugs since 12 because of it she looks soo old..Nikki looks like a male.trangender.now desperate Ian stans will read this article and write that she is angel,saves our Mother Earth.

  • Karin

    Love this beautiful I nside and out, compassionate Women., and Ian and Her make a stunning couple .

  • Neon

    Ian was down to Earth and very private with Nina. Now with Nikki he is simply ridiculous. And I agree with the massive opinion that Nikki is promoting herself too hard. Its very obvious she is pushing herself for fame. So pathetic! I hope this balloon will explode soon and Ian will start seeing reality outside of the Matrix again. Not to mention Nikki has no career of her own or even attemting to have one. You cant pickup fanme only from being IS’s GF. Its very low. And those fans – o Nikki you are so great and smart and…omg, its just so ridiculous. She has done nothing but be Ian’s additive. Ian does not look good with her. I mean too bad he will learned the bad way, but this is what will happen, its already going there.

    Nikki is using her fame as a Celebrity to help charities with their fundraising. The photo shoot is part of a fundraiser for the Wildlife Waystation. Nikki will be hosting a fundraiser next month for the Wildlife Waystation. She has been working with this organization for several years and it is very clear it isn’t about her, but it is about helping the animals that live there.

    Per Nikki:
    “Spent yesterday at the wildlife waystation, a place that has provided shelter and care for more than 76,000 – doing a photoshoot for @ladygunn magazine in the hopes of raising enough money to keep this place running! I wrote a post on my blog two years ago after visiting for the first time because I was so affected by the beauty that exists in this little
    pocket of California. There is a large range of animals residing here including all types of big cats (lions, tigers, bobcats, leopards,
    mountain lions, and even ligresses), chimpanzees, bears, opossums, foxes, llamas, reptiles, wolves, and many types of birds including birds of prey. The Wildlife Waystation also has the largest chimpanzee colony in the western U.S. with almost 50 chimps as permanent residents. These animals may have been former circus performers, members of animal exhibits, baby animals orphaned or abandoned by their parents, or they’ve come from research labs. Many of the animals were adopted by owners who thought they would make ‘novel’ or ‘cute’ pets until they grew up and became unmanageable. Sadly, in several such cases the animals were declawed or even de-fanged in a cruel attempt to maintain
    control over the animal. If you have a second please check out their
    website http://www.wildlifewaystation.org and contribute in any way possible. I
    have such a strong connection with these creatures, and the thought of
    you guys donating enough to help keep them alive makes me feel even more connected to all of you. I’m attaching a link to the post I wrote a few years ago, so you can see what this place is all about, but more importantly how it makes you feel to be a part of it. I am also hosting a fundraiser next month, so keep an eye out for details-I’ll post more soon!

    I think they’re both wonderful people and people who comment otherwise and say that Ian is secretly “in love with Nina” and crap like that are very immature, but is all the PDA necessary? Like, I literally can’t go on social media without seeing at least one picture of them making out in a public place and another 5 paragraph essay about how in love they are with each other. I’m starting to suspect that THEY are the ones writing all these articles about how in love they are. Look I think that they ARE in love and they have a beautiful relationship, but they’re kinda shoving it down everyone’s throats. I’m glad they’re happy and all- but aren’t paparazzi and journalists the ones that should be writing about how much nikki and Ian love each other and putting every available picture of them on the internet and trying to catch them kissing whenever possible? Instead it’s nikki and ian declaring their love and kissing everywhere possible and putting out selfies on selfies on selfies with each other. What happened to keeping those things private? I know I sound like a jealous fangirl- but I actually do like their relationship, I just wish it wasn’t down my throat all the time.

  • disqus_bC2oDCGeOU

    When is he coming out already?

  • monica

    Sorry, but I would say Nikki uses charities to help her getting more celeb; I mean what would remain of Nikki if you except her appearences for charities & her boyfriend? Nothing, be honest she doesn’t make it as an actress

  • Guest

    Considering Nikki has consistently been filming 3 movies per year and was a part of the Twilight series, I’d say she is doing very well as an actress. Just this year two of her 3 movies were successfully presented at the Tribeca Film Festival one of which was written by Joss Whedon. One of her movies, which is a comedy, will be released to theaters in Dec. 2014. The movie she filmed this past summer in Conyers, GA named “Sunday Horse”, which is based on a true story and from what I can tell, it is going to be major hit.

  • monica

    Well, Twillight was thanks to director catherine Hardwicke (ex of daddy) as Thirteen, “Murder of a cat ” is a crappy comedy, “Sunday horse” kind of story of a horsejumper, I doubt of this being a major hit…but you know it’s just an opinion; I’m not fan of Nikki as I’m not a fan of Nina; I think Ian should have followed his own advice and stay away from Hollywood girls …but I forget this was a lie ; So he’ll probably rush into Nikki’s next marriage and probably learn his lesson pretty soon

  • Guest

    On the Chelsea Handler show Ian never said he would not date someone from Hollywood. He said dating in Hollywood is “gnarly” meaning that it can be difficult and challenging, which is very true.

  • monica

    I have not seen this show, I talk about an interview he gave ( for a magazine) released like 10 days or something before the first pics with Nikki came out in July , at the same time he said to a journalist he was “totally single” ! Why did he lie?, he could just turn down the question as he was used to do about his private life, no need to lie,finally it makes people wondering what Ian’s true colors are and think that Nikki has a bad influence

  • Guest

    Typically magazine interviews are done a month ahead of their release so at the time Ian was stating the truth. He and Nikki started dating the 3rd week of June, which was after he returned from Europe.

  • monica

    This is precision! So tell me, according to you who did the move from friendship to relationship? What do you think about it?

  • Guest

    It takes two people to have a relationship and it is great when it evolves from a friendship.

  • monica

    vagueness & neutral answer, In my opinion she did, I think she had a crush on Ian a long time before her divorce from her husband, probably when they went on double dates, poor Paul MD. I don’t know if it is for the best when a relationship evolves from a friendship as when a man has a major crush on a woman, when he really wants her nothing can stop him from trying to get her right away. As they know each other for a long time Ian could have dated her over Nina but he didn’t ; more than often women are the pushy ones to turn friendship into a relationship

  • Guest

    During the time Ian and Nina were dating, they NEVER double dated with Paul and Nikki. That rumor and lie was made up by Hollywood Life. When Ian returned to Atlanta after his TVD conventions in Europe he made contact with his long time friend Nikki Reed, who was filming her movie, “Sunday Horse” in Conyers, GA. They were seen shortly thereafter having dinner together at a restaurant in Inman Park. While they had been friends for several years, they had never had a chance to spend quality time together. Once Ian & Nikki had the time and opportunity to really get to know each other, they had a lot in common and “clicked”. Ian went to the stables where Nikki was filming her movie, which is where and when he met Nikki’s co-star, Eagle, the horse in the movie and the one he and Nikki purchased together. Eagle was not up for adoption, nor was he abandoned. Ian & Nikki purchased Eagle together because they both fell in love with him. After that they bought another horse together, which was a beautiful female horse named Millie. Ian and Nikki have now been together for 5 months and their relationship is getting more serious. Nikki did not manipulate Ian. It was a mutual decision to take their friendship to a romantic relationship.

    I read more and more of your comments… You talk like you’re really an insider of their lifes! I don’t know what’s worse, how disturbing this PR is, or how high your obsession is… Nikki is a nobody, ever since Twilight, she hasn’t hit any other great project, I can assure you and anybody that I haven’t heard of her since she started getting linked to Ian.
    Sometimes, I feel like Nikki was planning this for a long time… Because why would she separate from her husband a month after Nina and Ian broke up… Why filming in Atlanta where Ian was? I’ve seen the twitter proving they used to double date… So, yes… Maybe your queen who wanted to date someone more famous ever since she was still married, and on her as-husband first slip she climbed out from the marriage like she did. She’s a famewhore and nothing people could say will make me change my mind on her….

  • Guest

    I don’t look at any celebrity as a Queen or a King. I happen to be a fan of Ian’s and I really don’t understand why people attacking Nikki think they will somehow change Ian’s mind about her, or think they have the power to end Ian & Nikki’s relationship. Nikki appears to be a very nice, very kind and very sincere mature young woman no matter how much people want to demonize her with their rumors and lies. I guess spreading rumors, lies and a whole lot of hatefulness just makes some people feel better about themselves.

  • theonlyandoneme

    To me, Nikki is just another opportunist. Same goes to Ian posting and going on excessive PDA to try and shove her down on our throats. If you’re a fan of Ian, why you use an icon with his called girlfriend. To me, it seems you’re a fan of the couple, since you got a lot of info about her. I haven’t heard rumors or lies, someone from inside the Twilight set told me she was a fame seeker since that time. Do you know she was almsot fired of the movie for calling the paps to the set? To me, Ian is just promoting her, and she’s loving it.

  • monica

    Wow, if your source from the Twillight set is reliable, that’s crazy! Poor Ian, he probably has no idea about this

  • theonlyandoneme

    It is, I can assure you. I don’t know… Maybe he knows, maybe he doesn’t. I don’t know them, I have no clue of what it’s really going on their lives… He could be promoting her, or really having feelings for her. One thing I’m sure… I don’t admire him anymore. I miss the old down to earth Ian… Now, he claims himself as an activist, but pollute the atmosphere with his planes travellings to cross the USA and promote that wannabe at LA.

  • monica

    He surely doesn’t know and he should! On some paps pictures he seems really annoyed by them but she never does she’s always all smile, wearing matching clothes… it makes sense if she calls for them

  • theonlyandoneme

    Go and check the articles on thsi very same site. Angelina Jolie is much more famous than Nikki, and if you compare the paps sight, Nikki has a lot more than Angelina. Coincidence? I don’t think so… Ian doesn’t like paps… There are a lot of vids of him ditching them, as asking for respect and privacy. That’s why he going to LA all those times, and posting selfies with her at his ig is a prove they are a PR. If he knows media will post articles about those selfies, and when he goes to LA a thousand of paps show up, why would he public them?
    Take for example Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin. They’ve been dating for months, and they have no selfies or public appearances as Nikki and Ian…. Haters like or not, but Ian was more respectful when he dated his former girlfriends… Nikki has paps on her speed dial, and the exposition of their relationship is disgusting.

  • Guest

    That’s because with Nina, there never was anything. He wasn’t really in love. It was a showmance dictated for the show’s ratings. You can see the difference in how he looked so unamazed with Nina and how he totally glows with Nikki. When a man is in love with a woman, it shows.

  • monica

    well I think that Ian wants to be nice to his girlfriend as usual in the early stage of a relationship but this girlfriend obviously takes every opportunities to stay in LA where she’s more than sure to be paps every time they go out; about posting his selfies himself I guess he probably thinks that it’s better to give away pictures he likes & has a control on than having every day paps behind him trying to get some ; maybe he thinks that if he shows off a little bit of them by himself paps will have less interest in hunting them everywhere;

  • Neon

    With Nikki it all looks so forced and fake, and even ridiculous And when you look at Nikki, what’s to love about her??? really, she is pushing herself so stupidly, got to be either blind or simply dump! Its gonna be another media fun when these two split and it seems like the end is coming, just too fake, cant paly it too long. At least Ian had dignity with Nina, not he is slipping it away. You can see the interviews to tell, unless you are very, very stupid and lived in a cave. Or have been brain washed by the Kardashians as most Americans LOL.

  • Guest

    Well, you are entitled to your own opinion, but I beg to differ on that. I think with Nikki everything looks more natural, and he looks really in love. They both look really in love, and free to share it with the world. Just like any in love couple would. You can see that exhilarating enthusiasm coming out of their pores. If you’ve ever been in love, yo understand what I mean. There’s no need for those silly “they’re trying to keep it secret” excuses there used to be with Nina, cause they really didn’t behave like a couple for much of the time they were in public. As harsh as this may sound to Nina fans, she is not the center and focus of Ian and Nikki’s relationship. They’re in love with each other, not with her. I’m so glad Ian is happy with Nikki now.
