'The Vampire Diaries' recap: Will Katherine make Stefan fall for her?

Damon just can't stay out of trouble, either

We knew it was only a matter of time before someone figured out "Elena" wasn't really herself. The only surprise was that it wasn't Katherine herself who gave away her true identity. Watching her roll her eyes, flirt mercilessly with Stefan, and wing her way through conversations she doesn't entirely understand, it's been hard to believe that Elena's nearest and dearest aren't whispering about how "off" their friend seems.

The ventriloquist talks about why he kept his young new love a secret

Sure, it seems a little sketchy from the outside.

But that's just a guess. "Discovery After Dark" premieres at 10:15 p.m. ET

CulturePop No. 36 - Scheana Marie of 'Vanderpump Rules' talks big twist

She reveals the scene that 'brought tears' - and she wasn't in it

It's been a while since Melinda and I have done a podcast, but we're back and (if you can get past the remnants of my cold) had a chance to talk to Scheana from "Vanderpump Rules." Even if Stassi and Kristen give her a hard time, we found her to be lots of fun, a dry wit and she even gave us some hints about what we can expect on the season finale tonight ("Vanderpump Rules" airs Mon. at 9:00 p.m. ET on Bravo). In short -- expect the unexpected, and there are even more changes in store on the reunion show. Those crazy kids!
