While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We're so ready for summer - for warmer temps, vacations, etc., yeah, but also for the return of some of our guilty pleasure TV. AMC's resurrected "The Killing" will begin a new season on June 2, followed by the return of "True Blood" on HBO June 16.
  • Lindsay Lohan is at the center of more theft-related gossip, this time involving bracelets. Yes, we're serious. [NYDN]
  • Sorry, everyone. That epic moment when you thought "Today's" Savannah Guthrie flipped off Matt Lauer actually didn't happen - so says Guthrie on her Twitter account. She even provided a screengrab. [Savannah Guthrie's Twitter account]
  • Kim Kardashian's latest baby name option? No, not North ... Easton West. [Us Weekly]
  • As Rosie O'Donnell has proven, there's a right way and a wrong way to try to romance Drake. Asking him to murder your vagina, as it turns out, is going to be met with radio silence. But call him cute and compliment his muscles, especially if you're a media titan? You'll even get a 2 Chainz mention. [New York Magazine's Vulture]

How 'Game of Thrones' got on HBO

It wasn't a simple task for George R.R. Martin to trust showrunners David Benioff and D.B Weiss with his masterwork, "Game of Thrones."

Benioff recalls the day they called the writer, and tried to get him on board.

"We thought this was going to be a very tough sell, because we said, 'We love your books. We would love to adapt them. We don't think they can be movies,' " Benioff said. " 'We think maybe it can be an HBO series.' And we're waiting to hear the click, because, you know, there's just less money and for a novelist, it's less money in letting your book get optioned by HBO versus a movie studio."
