If you’re familiar with my blog or if you know me well .. you’d know I was DEVASTATED when these two split! My dreams of them being together are now lived through The Vampire Diaries, even though he did break up with her just recently (oops). However when they won the People’s Choice Award for “Best Chemistry”, I was thoroughly impressed with how NOT AWKWARD it was! I love it! I mean they’re dating on TV so why would there be tension?
Their split was pretty amicable and what not BUT it does anger me that they are no longer together. Nina was interviewed about the acceptance speech that she and Ian presented and she said, “We were like, well, we’re cool, we’re friends and costars. He’s a great person, I’m a great person…I mean, I think I’m pretty awesome. So it doesn’t need to be awkward and I think everyone expected it to be so awkward. We made fun of ourselves and just had fun.”
It takes two mature adults to not be awkward in a situation like that and I applaud them for joking about their breakup and accepting their awards gracefully and in such a light-hearted manner. Love them!
