Mrs. Carter: This is turning out to be a pretty terrible summer for couples affiliated with “The Vampire Diaries.”
Earlier this year, the news first broke that Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev had ended their multi-year relationship, but continue to work together and try to establish a strong professional relationship. These two never really discussed their relationship publicly, so for the most part it was pretty hard to tell the difference between the couple during their dating period, and now that it is over. That is not exactly the same thing that could can say about Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto, given that they were actually married,
Sadly, the news comes out today that after two years of marriage, these two are now heading for divorce. In a statement to People Magazine, Paul’s representative confirms that they “have decided to amicably split. They will continue to remain good friends.” This is a nice way of announcing something that has to be very sad, especially given that there were no signs of trouble between the two parties at all (kudos for them actually being able to keep their relationship woes private). They had the opportunity to work occasionally on “The Vampire Diaries” together, and while they were busy on separate programs sometimes (as Torrey also has gigs on “Pretty Little Liars” and “Army Wives”), they had managed to find time in there for each other.
For the longest time, Paul and Torrey kept their relationship as secretive as Ian and Nina. Neither party acknowledged publicly that they were married until months after the fact, and only really in the past year and a half started to open up publicly about their lives. The two first met back in 2007, where they worked on the film “Killer Movie.”
In slightly less-important news, it also appears that Ian did not book that much-hyped role in “50 Shades of Grey.” So overall, a sad week all around for some of these people.
