'True Blood' gets an end date, and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Noooooooooooooooo! HBO has announced that "True Blood" will conclude with its seventh season next year. We will go ahead and say it: It's a bloody shame. [USA Today]
  • We hope Simon Cowell was joking when he said he's timed the birth of his baby to coincide with the premiere of the X Factor musical. Cause that would just be...who are we kidding? That would be kind of remarkable! [Metro]
  • As if Charlie Hunnam wasn't getting enough attention for being cast in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film, did he seriously sport a weed t-shirt? Who does he think he is? James Franco?!?! [TMZ]
  • We kind of blame Beyonce for this new bob trend popping up everywhere. Now Kelly Ripa has gotten in on the game. [People]
  • Kerry Washington can't seem to stop being stunning. She's killing it these days [Glamour]
  • And because what would be a day without Kardashian news, we feel compelled to let you know that Kim has gone blonde. Again, we blame Beyonce. [E!]
