Have you heard of the latest Louisiana hot spot, the "Prius cabana suite"?
It's what Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder calls the place he just spent the night.
"That would be my rental car that I had to sleep in," Ian explains. "I couldn't find anywhere to stay. There's so many people here trying to tame this beast."
That "beast" is the devastating BP oil spill affecting a vast area that includes Ian's home state of Louisiana, which he is visiting now in an effort to help. Our E! News cameras just caught up with him exclusively...
Make sure you check out E! News tonight at 7 for Ian's full report.
And above, check out more exclusive video with Ian in Louisiana.
Ian tells us he's hoping more people will get involved in relief efforts--especially those in the Industry.
"Coming from the entertainment world, I'm really shaken by how quiet Hollywood is," the actor admits. "And I say that out of respect for my peers and colleagues, but I'm really bummed that no one is really coming up to help the situation. I think a telethon is a good way to funnel money into these channels...We need to set one of those things up to really paint a picture of exactly how much devastation is here.
"This is ground zero right now," Ian adds, as he surveys more of the devastating effects of the spill in the region. "I'm looking at this slick of oil. I've been watching pelicans die...This place is going to need money, that is the bottom line--money in the right hands to replant these marshes."
This was actually Ian's second trip to the region in recent weeks. He is from Covington, La., and is very involved with St. Tammany's Humane Society, a local animal shelter that has been caring for pelicans affected by the spill. You can get more information on the organization here and on Twitter.
Ian went to his hometown a few weeks ago to tape a PSA that would draw attention to the oil spill and how it is affecting local wildlife. And after finishing a press tour in Monte Carlo, he returned this week to see what he can do to help.
"You know, it's crazy," Ian says, "which really breaks my heart...If you look at all these beaches right here. It's a June afternoon--this beach would be littered with families, kids playing, dads on the pier with their buddies fishing. None of that's here...The things you remember, the times you spent with your parents or your grandparents, brothers, sisters, fishing and learning about the ecology here is...it's your base, it's your root and you'll do anything, you will fight tooth and nail to protect it."

Season One of "The Vampire Diaries" is officially over, and if you're someone who dismissed it as just another teen angst vamp lite offering (trust us, it isn't), August 31st will be your chance to see if you were right or not as that's the day Warner Home Video is releasing the Blu-ray and DVD box sets.
First, a short synopsis of the series:
"For over a century, I have lived in secret. Until now. I know the risk, but I have to know her." Dark, brooding, pulsing with blood lust and transcendent with romance, 'The Vampire Diaries' – which started as a series of must-read novels by L.J. Smith – has become a must-watch television hit. Season One offers unforgettable characters, living and undead. They are vampire brothers Stefan and Damon, one good and one evil; Elena, a double for the beauty both brothers loved some 150 years earlier; plus Elena' brother Jeremy, witch-in-training Bonnie, good guy Matt, and more denizens of Mystic Falls, VA. All are caught up in a spellbinding web of secrets, passion, and terror.

The cast of The Vampire Diaries- Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev were at the 50th Monte Carlo Television Festival last night.
Ian is looking sofa king HOT!!!
MJ, Paul doesn't look too bad either! ;)
Ian Somerhalder was interviewed by Peter Travers from Rolling Stone Magazine. Its an off the cuff interview where he talks about The Vampire Diaries.
OMG he could have been Jason Stackhouse in True Blood?! Slightly torn... I love him as Damon but as Jason he would have been nekkid A LOT!!! *Sigh* We can dream right?!
While in London you might as well shop right? And that is exactly what Ian Somerhalder did with fellow Vampire Diaries castmates.
They all hit Topshop/Topman on Friday and with all those bags looks like they did one heck of a shop!
Let me carry your bags for you next time Ian!!
Ian Somerhalder was in London last week with fellow The Vampire Diaries castmates Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley.
Yours truely TSH was hoping to get tickets to the signing but because of the flipping half term holidays the teens had nothing better to do than camp out overnight and take all of the 320 tickets that were issued!! Devastated :(

As we all know this is for the US, but I'm hoping that iTunes UK does a repeat of last season and we can download the episode the next day.
Anybody think these two look good Together?
