    Is True Blood the New Twilight?

    Don't get us wrong, Twilight is our one true love when it comes to those deliciously fanged types. But when we want to get our more scandalous Nikki Reed side going, we turn to vampire porn True Blood. The gothic HBO show has a bunch of things Summit wouldn't dare let its presh kids partake in (onscreen anyway!): kinky sex (complete with actual nudity), blood-drenched violence and a public relationship between the main stars!

    We sure wouldn't kick Stephen Moyer away if he tried to bite us, but S.M. and his real-life lover, Anna Paquin, are certainly no Robsten—they don't even have a fun couple nickname! (PaqMo? So not sexy!) The costar sweeties realized the chemistry was there from their very first audition together—how familiar!—but waited two years to announce they were an item. Is that how long we'll have to wait for Robsten to follow suit?

    Quite possibly. Until the entire Twilight franchise is pumped out, we're told Rob and Kristen will still be babysat big-time. As we've explained over and over for those who keep asking why Robsten is a bad thing to studio execs, the likelihood that two young, delectable stars are going to be together forevah and keep their pants zipped up for everyone else is slim to none. And no one can have two actors love each other on screen and hate each other off. Buh-bye million-dollar movie franchise. Luckily for HBO, naughty is more than encouraged!

    Check out the next ep of Blood's season two tonight, and don't think you're cheating on your beloved Edward and Bella. T.B.'s ab-tastic Ryan Kwanten  told us there are no harsh feelings between the casts of the two shows, so it's perfectly all right to enjoy both sorts of vamp entertainment!
