The Vampire Diaries
Remember when Matt dated Elena? Or that Katherine has a daughter? And who the hell is Ayana again?
It can hard enough to keep track of all the species on The Vampire Diaries, let alone who dated whom and how everyone's related. To help keep things straight, check out TVGuide.com's TVD Relationship Road Map, detailing 2,000 years of hookups, doppelgangers and family history.
Vampire Diaries Exclusive: Klaus returns to Mystic Falls!
Of course, since the characters are constantly evolving — and dying — we assume things will change going forward. But for now, here's where all of our Mystic Falls favorites stand.
Though Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) and Taystee (Danielle Brooks) are often cited as Orange Is the New Black's biggest scene stealers, we hold a special place in our heart for Lorna Morello (Yael Stone).There's just something about the delusional van driver and her bizarre (Boston? Brooklyn?) accent that is completely endearing, even when she's insisting on the validity of "knifes" as a word.
But beyond these few things, we barely know Morello. Thankfully, Stone says that will change when the second season premieres on Netflix in 2014. "For all of the characters, there really is a flowering of detail. So that's a really exciting thing that's happening. We're learning a lot of little secrets and I think people will enjoy it," Stone tells TVGuide.com.
FX has given a 13-episode order for The Strain from Guillermo del Toro,Carlton Cuse and author Chuck Hogan, the network announcedTuesday.
The drama is based on the vampire novel trilogy of the same name written by del Toro and Hogan, who co-wrote the pilot, which del Toro will also direct. The series will star Corey Stoll as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. When a viral outbreak of ancient vampirism begins to spread, Eph, his team and a group of average New Yorkers will fight for humanity's future.
It's a Wonderful Life
A sequel to It's a Wonderful Life is in the works, Variety reports.
Entitled It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, the film will focus on George Bailey's grandson as he undergoes his own holiday epiphany when an angel (Karolyn Grimes, who played Bailey's daughter Zuzu in the Frank Capra film) comes to show him the world if he had never been born.
Rob Ford, Doug Ford and Matt Lauer
Mayor Rob Ford continued to defend his leadership ability on Tuesday's Today Show after being stripped of most of his powersMonday by the Toronto City Council.
Nearly two weeks after Ford admitted to smoking crack during a "drunken stupor," he attempted to frame his admission as a sign of moral integrity, since he isn't afraid to admit his mistakes.
"I'm embarrassed. Not just myself," Ford told Matt Lauer. "My family, my friends, my supporters. I take full responsibility for that. We've all made mistakes, Matt. I'm not perfect. Maybe you are, maybe other people are. I've made mistakes. I've admitted to my mistakes."
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Nothing says true love like simulating sex on a motorcycle in front of a green screen, right? Oh, and don't forget the galloping white horses and rolling clouds over the desert.
Kanye West debuted his Kim Kardashian love-letter music video for "Bound 2" on Tuesday — and it features an apparently naked Kardashian straddling the rapper in front of cheesy nature images.
Jose Antonio Baston and Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria is off the market once more. The actress has been dating Jose "Pepe" Antonio Baston since last month, People reports.
Baston, 45, is the president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company, and made his first red carpet appearance with Longoria, 38,on Friday at the Museo Jumex Opening dinner at Case De La Bola in Mexico City.
Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice
Teresa and Joe Guidice will plead not guilty following two more fraud indictments, NJ.com reports.
On Monday, the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars were indicted in federal court on the additional charges of bank fraud and loan application fraud. Those are in addition to the 39 counts filed against the couple in July, which included bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa has also been accused of lying about having a job and a $15,000 monthly salary on a loan application, while Joe has been charged with failing to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008, when he allegedly earned nearly $1 million.
Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki
It's hard out there for a Sam fan.
Since getting possessed by Ezekiel, Sam (Jared Padalecki) has repeatedly been pushed out of the action on Supernatural this season to allow the angel to save the day (with the delightful exception of Sam's scenes with Crowley last week). And though with each use of his powers, Zeke — and thus, Sam — weakens a little more, Padalecki says Sam will get back in the fray soon.
"We do start to see that Zeke is healing Sam," Padalecki tells TVGuide.com. "We do see Sam start to not require so much help from Zeke and his brother. So we will gradually see more bits of Sam more often than Zeke in the upcoming episodes, which doesn't mean we won't see Zeke as well."
