What is that whole thing about a woman scorned? I guess Nina Dobrev has heard it and after months of keeping her mouth shut she decided that she couldn’t keep the truth to herself any more. She and Ian Somerhalder split up a few months ago, as we had explained on Celeb Dirty Laundry, and Nina has been going through the typical motions of a woman that invested in the wrong guy. She has stayed silent, then hinted through her tweets that all was not well in her love life and then partied with her girls friends an awful lot.
When Nina and Ian did a charity trip together in early April things were pretty ugly and it was clear then that after Nina went home, she really pulled herself together and got herself OVER it. After a few pining tweets Nina realized she and Ian were finished and decided to get on with her life. Part of that meant spilling the beans and from everything we’ve seen it looks like Nina facilitated the leak about their break up to the press.
Have you noticed that all of her friends are the sources cited by the media? That’s not a coincidence. Nina could never move on until people knew the truth, in spite of Ian and CW’s efforts to keep it all quiet. Any turmoil between them in real life could affect the fans perception so they wanted them to just kind of play along. Anyone reminded of Summit and the Twilight franchise? She and Ian are hot and bankable in The Vampire Diaries and now that they are dunzo just watch how the fans leaves the show in droves.
Ironically Nina gets the last laugh here too. Her friends have said she ended things because she wasn’t ready to get serious and we know that’s not exactly true. She was ready and invested in a life with Ian, until he cheated and unraveled them earlier this year. I love how Nina steps out of this with all the control and looking like the bigger person, plus she’s now free to date and enjoy her life again.
Do you think Nina wanted the press to know about the split? Was she the leak? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
