TV Watch True Blood
Oh, Sookeh! When we last left our heroine Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), she was betrayed by her true love, vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer) and whisked away to a magical land through ... a chandelier?
Before season 4 of HBO's supernatural hit premieres on June 26 (9 p.m. ET), watch a sneak peek at the magical fairlyland where Sookie meets an old friend, telepath Barry the Bellboy (Chris Coy), her grandfather (Gary Cole) and her fairy godmother, Claudine (Lara Pulver).
Anna Paquin is one lucky girl!
The True Blood heroine finds herself surrounded by a host of sexy leading men – Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Manganiello, and real-life husband Stephen Moyer – in new photos released by HBO to promote the upcoming fourth season of the vampy show.
Last viewers checked in with Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, she had left Bon Temps, La., for her fairy relatives, and had shut Moyer's Bill Compton out of her life after Skarsgard's vampire character Eric revealed her love's betrayal.
True Blood babies on the way.
Sam Trammell, 40, and longtime girlfriend Missy Yager are expecting twins, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"The couple is thrilled and excited," says a rep for Trammell.
After meeting in New York doing theater, the pair has been together for eight years. Yager has appeared on Mad Men and Boston Public, while Trammell resumes his role as Sam Merlotte in the HBO vampire series upon its return this summer.
Some of TV's hottest shows have been recognized for their "outstanding" portrayal of same-sex equality issues.
Fox's Glee, HBO's True Blood, ABC's Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy have all been nominated by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation for the group's 22nd annual Media Awards, which recognize the entertainment industry's impact on same-sex equality issues.
Other nominees among a total of 147 include the films Burlesque, Easy A and The Kids are All Right.
The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held in New York on March 19, in Los Angeles on April 16, and in San Francisco on May 14.

True Blood heartthrob Joe Manganiello asked his true love, actress-model Audra Marie, to marry him during a recent Italian vacation because he realized she was it.
"I knew early on that she was the one for me," Manganiello, 33, told PEOPLE Saturday night at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek's "Haunting" weekend event in south Florida. "I wasn't expecting to get married just yet, but when I felt this was the right situation for me, I decided to go ahead."
In September, Manganiello, who plays the wondrous werewolf Alcide Herveaux on HBO's hit vampire series, told PEOPLE that Marie is a "great dresser, gorgeous, tall, sweet, and she makes crazy English breakfasts."
Some people hydrate for sporting competitions with water or energy drinks.
Some people – like True Blood star Ryan Kwanten – prefer booze.
"I've been known to turn up drunk at triathlons and do very well," the Australian actor, 33, tells Men's Health magazine in its November issue.
Sorry ladies, Joe Manganiello is off the market.
While on vacation in Italy the True Blood heartthrob, 33, popped the question to his girlfriend, actress/model Audra Marie, his rep tells PEOPLE.
Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on the HBO drama, and Marie met at a 2009 Super Bowl party, but it was anything but love at first sight.
"She wouldn't go out with me for six months," Manganiello told PEOPLE in September. "We started dating a few months before I got cast [on True Blood]."
Always pay attention to your instincts. That's what Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) learned on the season finale of True Blood Sunday.
Earlier in the season, Sookie wondered if she could really trust her on-again, off-again vampire beau Bill Compton, played by Paquin's real-life husband Stephen Moyer.
After Sunday, it seems like the answer is no – or is it?
And to think, the screen's longtime Dracula, Bela Lugosi, died practically broke. But by a brand new count, the current vampire craze – on TV and in movies, books and merchandising – is estimated to be pumping some $7 billion (that's with a b) into the showbiz economy. Suddenly, money is flowing like blood.
Taking into account the $20 million box-office of this past weekend's batty Twilight parody Vampires Suck, the 5 million devotees of HBO's weekly True Blood, and the bestselling titles from authors Justin Cronin (The Passage), Stephenie Meyer (Breaking Dawn) and Charlaine Harris (Dead and Gone), the Hollywood Reporter estimates that in the past two years, bloodsuckers have pumped new life into Tinsel Town, creating what the trade paper terms an "entire inexhaustible industry."
From True Blood to true love – Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have tied the knot.
"Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin were married on Saturday evening in Malibu surrounded by their family and friends," the couple's reps tell PEOPLE.
Paquin – wearing a white halterneck gown and Neil Lane jewelry with her hair in an updo – and Moyer, clad in a dark suit, exchanged vows at sunset under a white tent at a beachside villa.
