This morning I woke up and logged onto Twitter to find that yes, in fact, Bethenny Frankel and I are kindred spirits and are destined to be best friends. She tweeted this:
Can every single film& tv show not be about vampires?stop the madness!something is cool until it isn't. r any of them good? R u over it too?
Ok so I SWEAR I had already planned a post this morning on this very topic. Even though I'm only one of her 81,155 followers on Twitter, and she has no earthly idea who I am—yet—I decided to respond:
Over it! I saw Vamp Diaries once and it was like a bad soap opera. I'll see New Moon solely for Edward Cullen, but that's it! :)
So there you have it. I just can't get down with all this vampire shit. I gave Vampire Diaries a chance, but it was just too painful, so I've stopped trying. I did like Twilight—mainly because I'm a sucker for intense love stories and Edward Cullen is so so hot—but that's as far as I go. I'll see New Moon when it comes out in a few weeks and probably Eclipse too, but I won't start following every new vampire show on TV. It's just not something I can sink my teeth into. (Bad pun intended).
However, Federica does not share my sentiments. She loooves True Blood. So when Erik (Alexander Skarsgard) from the show came into her office to try on some Cavalli suits, she about died. Her boss even said to him, "Oh Federica is such a cute little fan. She has your picture on her desk!" Even though Fed was beyond embarrassed, she said he just laughed it off and was really cool and down-to-earth. She also said he was just as hot in person, which is always a good thing, because there is nothing worse than being let down by an idol/someone you want to make out with. I don't know, maybe I should give True Blood a fair shot.
What about you guys: Are you down with this vampire phenomenon that's happening everywhere you turn? Who's your favorite Twilight actor? (I must admit, I am pretty psyched to see a shirtless Taylor Lautner in New Moon!)
