True Blood is an American television drama series created and produced by Alan Ball. It is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, and details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small Louisiana town. The series centers on Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

Just finished watching Season 1 and I can't wait to see Season 2! :P

Red Lipstick

If you could class my make up style, most of the time I am a "smokey dark eyes and nude/pink/peach lips" kinda girl - BUT I am going to try out the famous red lippy.
I have seen celebs/movie stars/models wear/friends wear it and I'm really keen to give it a go.
I just worry that I will look like a 80's hooker...

If you go to a make up store there are, like, a million different colours of red lipstick! How do I know which one to choose? darker or lighter red? Cool or warm? Glossy or matte?
I also need to consider the other make up on my face. I cant mix red lippy with bright blue eyeshadow (haha... eeww) I think I need to keep eyes VERY basic - also need a flawless face of foundation.
I have brown eyes and blonde hair and I'm almost always tanned.
Here are some lovely ladies who (I think) do it right...

Ryan Kwanten leaves the Playboy Mansion a 'happy man'

Former Home and Away actor turned Hollywood star Ryan Kwanten has confessed he's had the pleasure of visiting the Playboy Mansion's grotto and will die a "happy man."
Hugh Hefner's grotto is reportedly renowned for wild and intimate clothes-free parties, where inhibitions are left at the door.
We caught up with the True Blood star yesterday during his whirlwind Sydney visit to promote the Telstra T-Box.
The 33-year-old has taken America by storm with his portrayal of Jason Stackhouse, a ladies' man in the high-rating TV series shown on Foxtel in Australia and HBO in the US.

You also played this type of role as Vinnie in Home and Away. Has this helped you off screen with the girls?
At times, but then I also live vicariously through Jason, as he gets a lot more than your average man.
We would too.
Most importantly tell us about the Playboy Mansion parties.
I've had the pleasure of visiting Hef's mansion a few times and did a tour down to the grotto. I wouldn't touch the water though. Who knows what's swimming in there? At least I've seen the grotto and can die a happy man.
What are the American chicks like compared to Aussie girls?
American girls have more attitude, but once you put on the Aussie accent thicker — it calms them. Nothing beats a good conversation with an Australian girl and I'm looking forward to chatting to a few young ladies during my stay.
Nice one. Why are girls around the world going crazy over vampires at the moment?
Some girls like to think vampires are different and they represent that kind of mystery. The difference of True Blood is that it has so many layers and subtext and it's not just a vampire show.
It seems you've become more popular than a free sausage sizzle at Bunnings. Got a stalker yet?
Yeah, she's not the threatening type yet, but she's a lingerer. She's become a leader of this fan group and has sent me many promiscuous things that aren't even suitable to name on your site.
They say American beer is like having sex on a boat, as it's so close to water. Do you agree?
Haha, I've never heard that phrase and I'm going to steal it. I agree, but it beats drinking nothing. I do miss the good Aussie beers, but beggars can't be choosers.
Good call. It seems a lot of Home and Away actors serve their apprenticeship in Summer Bay, before making the transition to fame and fortune in Hollywood.
Home and Away was a steep learning curve and being surrounded by talented actors like Ray Meagher was inspiring. It was nice to find a place where my acting could grow and grow.
Do you somehow miss Alf calling you a flaming galah?
I wouldn't mind it every now and then to keep me in line. I've stayed in contact with Ray and I was really happy to see a good fella like him win a Gold Logie.
Do you sometimes hang out at a Santa Monica diner with other former Home and Away stars such as Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas, order milkshakes and reminisce about the good-old times?
That's all we do and talk about. We have renamed a couple of places the Bayside Diner and we'll go into character and visit these spots. I usually put on a Hawaiian shirt and do my hair for an hour beforehand.
When you first arrived in LA, you rode your pushie to auditions. How did you survive in Tinseltown?
I bought a $30 push bike from a garage sale and I would also catch local buses. I barely had any money and was originally supposed to be there for only three days. I convinced the Cadillic Hotel owner, who was also Aussie, to let me stay for three months. He put me in the storeroom and I paid him gradually once I found acting work.
Where's the strangest place you have been recognised?
I came out of this crappy little gym after some boxing training and there were six or seven paparazzi dudes waiting to get a pic. They were lucky they didn't get jumped, due to the infamous suburb.
What are you filming at the moment?
We just wrapped up season three of True Blood and I'm about to play a mechanic who's into heavy metal in a movie that's similar to Shaun of the Dead.
