Will Klaus and Caroline’s Relationship Continue in “The Originals”?
The new spin-off series introduction of “The Originals” had Caroline and Klaus fans in a frenzy… how was the heated attraction going to last if their separated? Don’t worry; our loving producer Julie Plec calmed our Klaroline nerves with a teaser that we hold true to our hearts, “Even if the spin-off does happen and we have two shows, I don’t predict that that would be the end of (Caroline and Klaus’) relationship.” Is there still hope for Klaroline?
“Family Feud” Auditions
We had an eventful year with FEUD fans. YOUR family had the chance to try out for “Family Feud” on CW! The show films in Atlanta and earlier this year they held auditions for all FEUD lovers. There were plenty of audition dates and tons of people came. Did you try out? Stay tuned for next year’s auditions.
Our movie guru, Mike, has brought us the good, the bad and the great in all things movies. He’s previewed the must-see and not so must-see films of the year.

2013 Atlanta International Auto Show
And then, there were the sexiest cars you have ever seen… The 2013 Atlanta International Auto Show was a sight for all eyes this year. The CW covered the hottest luxury wheels around in a photo gallery available to anyone from car-enthusiasts to the general public. I have a few of these cars on my Christmas list — a girl can definitely dream :).
Stay tuned for details on the 2014 Atlanta International Auto Show.
Kat Graham’s Pin-Up Style
Fierce Fashion: a state of mind when talking about our girl Kat Graham. CW spotlighted her top 2013 style when she attended the ‘Only God Forgives’ Premiere in March. The CW star bewitched us all when she rolled down the red carpet styled in a 40’s vintage dress and Marilyn Monroe hair-do. Keep it classy Kat, it looks well on you.
The “Kimye” Baby Has Arrived!
Kim and Kanye gave birth to a baby girl in June. The duo was very hush hush on the baby name, which led to a name hunt. For weeks, everywhere you turned new “Kimye” baby name rumors were spreading. They definitely surprised us when they announced her actual name…North. Were you shocked? Check out our poll on what names we thought of.
How To Make “The Carrie Diaries” Purse!
A DIY fashion happening hit the CW blog and was devoured in minutes! In August, fashionistas were able to find step-by-step instructions for the iconic Carrie purse from “The Carrie Diaries.” I mean come on, who wouldn’t want to make this fashion masterpiece? Did any of you make it? Take a picture and tweet us @ATLCW!
Katy Perry is John Mayer’s ‘Teenage Dream’
Love was definitely in the air for John Mayer this year. Besides the adorable pictures of him and girlfriend Katy Perry, his shining moment was at one of his concerts. He proclaimed his love for Perry on stage in front of thousands. He spoke about love to his crowd and dedicated his last song to the gorgeous pop-singer. I’m thinking wedding bells in 2014.
