Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are no longer going out, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t keep careful track of each other’s movements – even if they pretend not to. For all intents and purposes, both of them are happy with their new lives – Ian with his new fiance, Nikki Reed, and Nina with her long list of flings and rumored boyfriends. However, sources tell us that Nina’s ‘happiness’, for lack of better word, is completely faked right now. Apparently, more than the fact that Ian has moved on and is rubbing it in everyone’s faces, Nina is jealous of all the public attention he’s been getting for his new engagement.
See, that’s where an engagement/marriage/babies actually help with actors: when it comes to their PR, especially positive PR. Suddenly, people who couldn’t care less about you are reading about your fiance, your wedding, and your future plans to have a million babies in People Magazine, and they’ve become fans. And Ian Somerhalder is good looking enough, fairly well known, on the popular TV show The Vampire Diaries, and charming enough that all the PDA-filled dates with Nikki Reed have paid off. They’ve become a staple in People and US Weekly, which means that the general public now knows who Ian Somerhalder is.
Unfortunately for Nina Dobrev, she is not getting the same type of coverage with her love life, and there’s really not much she can do about it. Boyfriends and the active single life of a 26-year-old TV star don’t create the same type of buzz or get the same type of media coverage that an engagement in Hollywood gets. It might be unfortunate for Nina, and it might cause her to be very jealous of Ian’s situation, but that’s just how it works.
Of course, the attention and buzz is only going to last until the wedding, and then it’ll probably transition to babies not soon after. At that point, Nina might be getting married to someone else, right?
