  • Since she's not going to give me an endless buffet of drunken birthday bash pics with numerous random celebs this year, my dream for Nina's birthday in two days would be bigfootesque pics of her and Glen from somewhere like oh I don't know, maybe a MEXican sEXican vaca perhaps?
    I could really use that as a distraction from real life this week.


    • Awwww, ONB is going to be a daddy!


      • I just saw it! Good for them. They seem happy!


        • YES! BEBE:

          Awww, good for them.

          I didn't post about this, but y'all probably know that Mel went public with the fact that her ex-husband Blake Jenner was an abusive asshole and put her through absolute hell (he's the reason why she has a permanently enlarged pupil in one eye!), which puts her relationship overlap between Blake and ONB into a brand new perspective and might be why they moved in together so fast, and maybe why ONB is so protective of her when paps and crowds are around, etc.

          Melissa didn't name Blake in her video about domestic violence, but Chris made absolutely sure everyone knew who it was:

          And PDubs did too:

          But anyway, very glad she got out of that situation and very happy that they are both so happy.

          I also like Mel's VOTE shirt:

          Speaking of ONB! Two career notes . . .

          He was on Legacies for a couple of eps this season:

          And apparently, he and his face looked like this in Legacies as a MurderUncle:

          Which ALMOST makes me want to watch that show . . . but I just can't! Those last couple of seasons of TVD broke me down by dullness and I don't think I can go back there anytime soon.

          I assume the longer hair he has been growing is for his new show:

          EXCLUSIVE: Hope and Michael’s little boy is all grown up. Supergirl alum Chris Wood is the first actor cast as a lead in the ABC pilot thirty(something(else), a sequel to Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick’s beloved 1987-91 drama series.

          Written by Herskovitz and Zwick and to be directed by Zwick, thirtysomething(else) will follow an ensemble of new faces playing the grown-up children of the original cast, the new generation of thirtysomethings. They are being joined by returning original cast members Ken Olin (Michael Steadman), Mel Harris (Hope Murdoch), Timothy Busfield (Elliot Weston) and Patty Wettig (Nancy Weston), reprising their characters in supporting roles.

          Wood will play Leo Steadman, Hope and Michael’s son and Janey’s brother. Good-looking and charming (not unlike his father), Leo is so intent on becoming a “big deal” like his father that he skips steps along the way. His talent and grand ideas are tripped up by his lack of focus and follow-through.

          Unless Leo also turns out to be a snarky murderprince, this sounds very meh to me! I never watched the original, though! But it's an actual grown up show on a non-CW network so this is a good career move, I guess?

          Okay, since I'm here, a quick Nina update . . .

          She's mostly been in South Africa, filming a period movie for the past month or so:

          This bathing suit is TREMENDOUS, I LOVE it:

          With a quick foray into Paris for Fashion Week:

          She's also been jetting around to London, Toronto, and NYC, promoting her new movie Run This Town.

          London with her pal Nicole and some dudes?

          I don't love this pink sack she wore in Toronto, but her hair! It's almost Elena-length again.

          Truly terrible makeup on The Daily Show:

          Pretty sure she's single at the moment . . . she made a couple of jokes in South Africa about her dating life being terrible and summing it up with "he's just not that into you" as a general theme.

          But! as she was originally leaving LA for South Africa in February, the Dobrevics were making me raise an eyebrow:

          YOU KNOW WHO.

          NO I DON'T.

          TELL ME.

          Everyone who usually spills this stuff is being cagey, and I HATE IT.

          I tried to some digging, and it's true that when Nina posted a bunch of gifts 'round about her bday time and tagged who each thing was from, she left one pic of a flower bouquet untagged.

          Also, her most recent ex Grant just unfollowed her on everything for some reason? But she still follows him. (she follows all of her exes except for Ian and ONB).

          Could YKW be this tall dude? maybe? She was in LA with Tall Dude and her brother Alex and other friends getting brunch:


          I wanted YKW = Glen, but! I don't think so. In case you are wondering (you probably were not), the last time Glen liked a pic of Nina's was Feb 3. He hasn't liked her last 15 or so posts, but was ;iking them regularly up til then. And! the last time she liked one of his was also Feb 3. (what! happened! on Feb 4th!)

          . . . it might be because of this . . . in late January, Glen took my advice about a Mexican Sexican vaca, but not in mEXico, if you get my drift:

          Glen Powell was seen on a beach in Punta Mita, Mexico this week.

          The Scream Queens actor, who can next be seen opposite Tom Cruise in the highly anticipated sequel Tom Gun: Maverick, seemed to be having the time of his life with bikini-clad model Gigi Paris.

          The beautiful brunette could be spotted straddling her 31-year-old actor as they waded in the waves. The duo were also seen kissing on the sand.

          'Gigi Paris' sounds like an extremely made up name, but wevs.

          It wasn't just a Sexico fling, though, because they were also spotted at dinner in LA a few days later.

          I doubt it's a coincidence that Glen and Nina stopped interacting on instagram a few days after he started seeing someone else. Which also makes me think that MAYBE I WAS RIGHT about something sort of starting up again between them during awards season, because if it was all just friendly and platonic with no feefees involved then WHY would they stop cold turkey like that when Gigi Paris came on the scene, I mean WHY.

          And Nina's quote pics have been hmmmm:

          I could easily draft a scenario where Nina was the one making overtures to Glen to get back together post-Grant, and Glen almost letting himself forget just how badly she hurt him but then noping out of it to Mexican frolic with Gigi Paris (GIGI PARIS, SERIOUSLY THAT NAME IS KILLING ME) because of the lingering pain from his Thanksgiving '17 heartstomping, and that's why Nina was moping around South Africa seeming a bit down about her love life.

          Glen and Gigi haven't been papped together again, though, so maybe that's already dunzo. (= I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP HOPE).

          At least! If it wasn't gonna be Nina, I could have lived with Zooey D., but nooooo:

          As a VERY RANDOM side not, the only people who don't seem to think Nina is single right now are the Gaylors . . . who think she might be Karlie's new girlfriend, based entirely on a blind item.

          So Enty has a BI up that says that “the tall alliterate model” (Karlie Kloss) is upset that she’s losing followers and her views “barely crack five figures”. The writer opines that maybe [Karlie] should get back with “the singer” (Taylor Swift) instead of that “A/A- actress” she’s been with lately. (???)

          Looks as though it might be Nina Dobrev. (I think even “A-” is a stretch for her, but I guess it’s possible. She was the lead in her failed sitcom, so I guess that bumps her up a half-notch.) She was with Karlie and Cara at the PFW Dior show, and she’s been at a few Dior events where she’s taken pics with Karlie. (I assume they’re both brand ambassadors? I don’t follow that stuff.) Feh. Not so interested. Julianne, come get your girl!!

          Oh, Gaylors. They always deliver the laughs.


          • GiGi Paris is more fun to say with a really bad Brenda Walsh French accent.

            Gheeee ghheeee pareeee!
            Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.


            • Emerging from my hibernation to say well, we now know who You Know Who is.



              Inside Nina Dobrev and Olympian Shaun White's Rumored Romance

              In photos captured by paparazzi, White appeared to be holding the actress' dog during the bike ride.

              According to a source, the duo's outdoor stroll has been one of their many hangouts recently. However, despite fueling romance rumors, they have yet to make anything official.

              "Nina and Shaun have been spending a lot of time together recently," the insider shared. "Their relationship doesn't have an official title right now, but that's pretty normal for Nina."

              The insider added that Nina's inner circle is "pleasantly surprised" by her interest in Shaun and their recent hangouts.

              "Shaun is a departure from previous guys Nina has been with," the insider explained.

              However, don't expect the Vampire Diaries alum to put her possible love interest on full display. At least, not anytime soon.

              "Nina is very private about her romantic life," the source expressed. "She is very careful about posting photographs together because she wants to ease into things naturally and organically."


              New couple alert? Weeks before Shaun White and Nina Dobrev sparked dating rumors while on a scenic bike ride, they were spotted getting “flirty” during a FaceTime call, an eyewitness exclusively tells In Touch.

              At the time, the 33-year-old Olympic athlete was seen at Shake Shack in the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas where he told the eyewitness he was in town for a photo shoot. “He walked in with glasses on and was on the phone.” Explaining their interaction, the source says, “I apologized for interrupting his call and he asked if I wanted to say ‘hi’ to the person on the line. He showed me his phone and it was Nina Dobrev! I almost fainted.”

              The Vampire Diaries star, 31, was “waving and looked pretty normal, she was in bed,” the onlooker adds. “Shaun sat in the corner and was just talking to her while he was eating. It was really cute. It seemed to me like they were an item — he was smiling the whole time.”

              On March 22, the rumored couple stepped out for some fresh air despite the coronavirus pandemic. As the two weren’t keeping a social distance, it’s possible they could be shacking up in quarantine together.

              On March 17, the actress told fans how seriously she is taking the current crisis. “Hoping everyone is stocked up, quarantined up and is taking the necessary measures to protect themselves and be safe,” she captioned a selfie sporting a face mask. “Wear gloves, wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing. It’s scary out there. But there’s no need to feel helpless. You are not alone.”

              As for Shaun, he is also being cautious since the outbreak. That same day, he shared a video playing “quarantine edition” Monopoly. Although he didn’t show his opponent, it’s possible Nina was on the other side of the board.

              On March 23, the athlete joked about practicing his snowboarding skills from his living room. “Where I’ll be training from now on … #StayHome #Quarantine,” he wrote on Instagram. Both Nina and Shaun sound like great quarantine buddies.

              I don't think they are quarantining together. Nina's been posting from inside her own house:

              (that is ABSOLUTELY Shaun's Ralph Lauren USA hoodie, I think we can agree on that.)

              . . . and Shaun's been posting from some other place in LA.


              He also posted a 'morning ritual' pic from inside a kitchen that was absolutely NOT Nina's kitchen. So they are not quarantining together full time, but they are breaking social distance to hang out.

              Back on March 17, he was hanging at her place, playing GOT Monopoly and washing things in her sink:

              I can't embed instagram posts anymore for some reason, only link, btw, and my ,links don't work either dunno why but maybe because 2020 SUCKS SO BAD:


              Certainly the giraffe onesie is classic Nina, and she was papped buying that exact GOT Monopoly game.

              As for why they were bike riding in Malibu and not in Nina's neighborhood, apparently that's where Shaun's been living until recently?

              Other clues! He was also in Vegas while Nina was there for NYE. He was spotted in the background of some of the pics her crew took while there, but I just dismissed it as one of those many many times when celebs run into each other randomly in places like Vegas. Guess that's not all it was!

              Much more importantly, he definitely flew to South Africa while she was there for a week or so around Valentine's Day. He posted a few safari pics and beach (and so did she) with matching locales.

              I assume if he was with her on safari, then he's the one who took these pics:


              and vice versa:


              And they went on a snow boarding vaca to Mammoth for a few days together with JHough on March 10th, pre-lockdown-time.



              So that means in three months, they been seen in Vegas, South Africa, Mammoth, and Malibu. Sounds like the typical Nina jetset whirlwind! If not for the world wide lockdown, who knows where they would be right now. #Timbuctoo

              And as to how they met, they are both pals with Zedd and with the Jonas Bros, so maybe that way? Shaun just got out of a 5? 6? yr relationship, so I guess Nina is just as good as anybody else to rebound with for a few months why not.

              I like to think I would have figured this out before they went 'public' if I hadn't been so sick for the past 12 days, but who knows. I mean, I guess I was WAY WRONG about Nina's quote posts = single and lonely and moping over Glen. I'm getting really bad at this.

              ETA Meanwhile, the other Glen . . . .

              • Ugh! The new guy is ugly.I do not approve.


                • Shaun White is problematic AF. Gross, Neens.



                  • I knew he gave me bad vibes!


                    • He's always struck me as a total sporty douche-bro.
                      Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.


                      • So she needed a throwback to dating skeevy Ian? Blech.


                        • Apparently Ian and Paul are still friendly enough to launch a bourbon together.


                          And presumably they both really need the money


                          • Nina went insta offical with Shaun White. MEH. Of course the one boyfriend of hers that I'm grossed out by is the one she'll probs marry.


                            • Yeah, I saw the haircut. His face bugs me soooooo much.


                              • Nina went insta offical with Shaun White. MEH.

                                Yeah, that is still going on. They went US Weekly official, too.



                                Nina Dobrev and Shaun White Are Dating, ‘Laugh a Lot Together’ as She Posts Funny Video

                                Nina DobrevOpens in a new Window. shared a funny video with Shaun White. As a source told Us Weekly exclusively that they are dating and “enjoying their time together.”

                                “Nina and Shaun are into each other and are dating,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “They’re enjoying their time together and getting to know each other better.”

                                The playful video she posted on Saturday appears to sum up the couple’s fledgling relationship.

                                “Nina really likes Shaun and they both laugh a lot together and think each other is funny,” the insider added.

                                She used to be quite firm that if you saw a guy on her insta, that meant she was NOT dating him . . . so the fact that she's been very public and social media-y with SW makes me wonder if either this is the Real Deal for her, or if it's just so light and casual-esque and all about the funtimes that it isn't something she feels like she has to protect.

                                Anyway, I'm about as into this relaysh as I was into the whole thing with the tall dude with the bad hats, which is basically not at all. Here's a mini round-up of pics and stuff anyway, though, just because I'm a completist and must construct a full set of NinaDudes(TM).

                                And of course, Nina cutting Shaun's hair.

                                (she did a good job at least. Apparently, Riawna talked her through it).

                                And at a BLM protest:

                                Old pic from the Nian days of Shaun with the TVD peeps:

                                Shaun dated Arielle years and years ago:

                                So they've known each other awhile, but obvs didn't date until he was out of his long term relationship.

                                Based on insta, they seem to be spending time at both houses, not just hers -- but! this has become pretty domestic pretty quick for Neens. Maybe it's just because of living in pandemic times, though. She's been posting from his house/yard a whole bunch.

                                Anyhoo, Nina is not the only one quarantining/protesting with a new mans, so is Phoebe Tonkin. Phoebe moved in with Alex Greenwald, a musician from Phantom Planet, who up until a year ago was engaged to Brie Larson.

                                There are no pics of them together yet! But here he is:

                                . . . and with Brie:

                                I only knew who he was because the Braylors (ha! I still think it's funny they exist!) use his so-called obvious merkiness as proof that Brie is closeted. Of course, they say the same thing about her current boyfriend (who she lives with). The fact that Alex is now happily shacked up with Pheebs in a very non-showmancey way quite clearly pokes holes in all of that, but wevs. To bring it all back 'round, the Venn Diagram of people who think Braylor is a real possibility and the folks that think Nina has been dating Julianne Hugh off and on (whenever she's not dating Ruby Rose, apparently!) is a flat circle.

                                Side note: Glenn and PDubs have a motorcycle based bromance going on, and teamed up together to donate meals to frontline workers a month or so ago:

                                A very nice looking motorcycle gang indeed.

                                Second side note, I guess DK and Nina are still friends?

                                I would not have guessed that.
