Nina Dobrev And Derek Hough Break Up After A Blissful Six Week Fakelationship

Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough dating September 2013Being in a fakelationship is an exhausting pastime, you guys. Just think of all the pressure it puts on your thumbs, sending out all those tweets and Instagrams of the two of you together, skipping through fields of daisies and whatnot. And the more implausible your relationship, the more energy it takes to keep up the illusion…so it makes total sense to me that Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough have dropped the act after only six weeks. They were tired!

That’s right, you guys! It feels like just yesterday, but it was a full six weeks ago that this fakelationship blossomed like a rose in bloom while I speculated on its authenticity and Derek’s sexual orientation and received dozens of seething threats on every single one of my social media platforms as my reward. I barely had the energy to field those angry comments for one day, so I’m impressed that Nina and Derek were able to keep it up for six weeks. Respect.

According to an insider speaking to Us Weekly, the relationship ‘played itself out’ on account of the fact that ‘the distance was too much to handle.’ No yeah no, I totally get that. I mean usually when I start a relationship with the rumored-to-be-gay brother of my best friend, I do it while he’s in LA filming Dancing With The Stars, and I’m in Atlanta filming Vampire Diaries, because I find that’s the best way to get to know someone and build trust.

But I get that that’s not for everybody. I’ve just found that if you see anyone more often than that, you learn all manner of pesky things like “oh I squeeze my toothpaste tube differently than you do” or “you’re a vegetarian, huh?”, or “oh bt-dubs, Nina, you know those rumors that I dated Ryan Seacrest…?” You know. Dangerous stuff like that. Long-distance solves those kinds of revelations every time. Or it’s supposed to! I don’t know what happened.

But don’t worry guys! Julianne Hough isn’t pissed. “Julianne understands — there are no hard feelings.” Maybe not hard feelings persay, but maybe just some firm ones. After all, no one knows better than her the trials and tribulations involved in making a PR-relationship work in the long term. She may not be mad at Nina, but I bet she’s at least disappointed that her bestie couldn’t stick it out long enough to qualify for a break-up mansion.

But at the end of the day, I think we can all admit that Nina and Derek played it exactly right. If you aren’t ready to get engaged after six weeks, then you’re obvi not made for each other, no matter how beneficial it would be for both of your careers. RIP Ninek Dough. (See? Even their name doesn’t work.)

    LOL I don´t understand why did you get the hate on your last article MOST of Nina´s fans and general hated this relationship lol many said they drop the act bc the hate that Nina and the Dance Queen got

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      He has a surprising fan base, and they do NOT like me.

    • TM

      well his big big fan base got nothing against Nina´s fanbase and well many people on twitter like I said I never said anyone stand him just the otherside in the comments of ALMOST all articles in the internet so I got suprise when I saw you attacked here

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Big time attacked.

  • Georgia

    LOL maybe everything is FAKE. I doubt Nina and Derek are over completely, she’s still close to his sister, they may see each other on the sly. My theory is they are pushing the “possiblility” of a Nina/Ian reconnection. Have you seen TVD ratings? At this rate, so early in the season, if they continue it will go below 2 million and a possible non renewal for the FINAL season. Ian also has a new girlfriend in Atlanta that he’s silent on. It’s all a fake game. I don’t watch TVD anymore because of repetitive type storylines, maybe they should look in their own backyard.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Ooh who’s his new girlfriend?

    • TM

      lol he doesn´t have a new girlfriend doesn´t listen the crazies lmao I count in the so love relationship Nina and Derek went out together 3 weekends in 6 these weeks and it´s why they wer so in love lmao … And it wasn´t bc one of them were busy in these weekends bc nina was with his sister in ATL in both of them doing NOTHING when they went out in LA they were always to public places with paparazzi but more than 3 people saw them inside and said Nina was in one side and Derek in other with Julianne, and anyone saw them acting like a couple in these place but wait when they went out from the place they hold hands and paparazzi caught then lol

      it´s not even about TVD, TVD AFTER 5 YEARS still one the best ratings show in CW and still getting awards lol Nina and Ian being together not change that, I think it´s funny how people prefer bs about a 3 year relationship where even their family was envolved and believe in a SHIT the it´s been screaming PR ALL THE TIME

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      They were ‘so in love’ after six weeks? That doesn’t seem suspicious to you?

    • TM

      lol suspicious ? Nina gave a video interview for USweekly in her Cosmo party how she doesn´t want a serious relationship but in a what? 2 weeks after she was in love and so SERIOUS with him the best is a week before from when they supose started to date she was in Japan and before that she was with Julianne and her friends in a lake house in Idaho, where Derek wasn´t bc there any pic or mention of him there and I heard he was working or whatever he does in his life in LA so …. Suddenly, she went to LA they went to Beacher´s Madhouse Theater together and people saw them there and then ALL Nina´s no stop tweets about Derek and DWTS, plus 2 more PUBLIC EVENTS weekends together started what love STORY I find it funny how they SOLD 6 weeks when they were in the same place just 3 weekends of this 6 weeks lol

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I think we agree, but I literally can’t tell, based on your comments.

    • Guest

      Can you please let me know why my posts keep disappearing?

    • Robert

      Because you were revealing information on Georgia Peach. She sell info for the tabloids and they removed your post. She is not Real estate person, some say she is not even in Atlanta. Sorry…..

    • Samm

      Yes, everyone from fanforum.com believed her, but she became brutal and started spreading hate on Nina, so she totally lost credibility. She said she lives in Nina’s bounding but many of her stories were confusing and the time line never matched, she hjust never made up her mind. Then we saw she has like 4000 post on CDL and all the info from the forum was going to tabloids. LOL. Such a joke. She has a friend that she think ian will go out with and now is selling this story.

    • Guest

      Yes, it is funny how they dated for literary a few hours LOL.

    • Lucia

      Interesting! There was a very resourceful post below a while ago and not it is gone. it was about Ian….

    • Brian

      I saw it too. Interesting indeed by someone who lives near him. But it was removed. They leave the crap but not the good stuff:(
      I found the website: fanforum.com, but you have to have account. A friend told me that tabdbloid stories were coming form the comments there. Especially Nina and Ian.

    • Brian

      He does not have one, this is what the post was about.

    • Sebastian Mihai
