Breaking News – True Blood’s Manganiello and Fiancée Split

September 15, 2011

Is True Blood’s Wolf on the Prowl?

Joe Manganiello HBO promoUs Weekly has confirmed with multiple sources that our favorite werewolf on True Blood and his real-life fiancée have split up.  Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) and Audra Marie became engaged in October 2010, during a trip to Italy.

According to an insider, the breakup was “A long time coming”.  Even though they looked very happy, from an outsider’s perspective, apparently things started going south this spring.  We sincerely wish them both well. It’s always unfortunate when we have to cover these kinds of stories and you can expect no further word on this from us unless Joe Manganiello himself makes a statement, but since we announced the engagement we felt obligated to announce the break up.

Truebies, do you find it oddly coincidental that both the actor and his character would break up with their significant others at the same time?

True Blood Star Talks Superstitions

Joe ManangielloYou’re not a real Truebie if you didn’t know True Blood star Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) is a huge Steelers fan, but to what does he attribute the recent win that is leading them to the Super Bowl this year? His good luck charm, of course.

While he decked himself out in a Steelers jersey, it is who was by his side that Joe believes helped his team to victory. That’s right: Reggie may have had Kim, but it’s fiancée Audra Marie who had Joe shouting in joy as the Steelers gained another win on Sunday.

Okay, Joe loves his fiancée, but she can’t really be a good luck charm, can she? Does Sookie (Anna Paquin) have fairy blood? The couple actually met in 2009 at the Super Bowl, which the Steelers also won.  Joe explains:

“She was actually down there with some of her girlfriends for some of the festivities, and we met on our way into the Commissioner’s Ball that year…Football was kind of how we met.”

Come Feb. 6 there is no doubt Joe will be howling and clawing for another Pittsburgh victory. The actor, who was introduced to fans as a werewolf in Season 3, reveals that football as well as superstition is in his blood:

“I come from a long line of very superstitious Steelers fans…It can get a little weird. My dad is a very superstitious Steelers fan, and we all have to stay in certain positions because [he’ll] make sure that you cannot move if the Steelers are winning. We care a lot, but it’s a little OCD”

There’s no doubt who the superstitious were will be watching the Superbowl with. Audra Marie, the Steelers are counting on you!

Joe Manganiello Credits True Blood for Upcoming Nuptials

January 24, 2011

A Killer Year

Joe-Manganiello-Audra-MarieJoe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) had a stellar 2010. Initially cast on True Blood as a guest star, the actor announced at Comic Con 2010 that he had been made a series regular on the show. Later that year, Joe proposed to his girlfriend Audra Marie and she happily accepted!  But the latter would have never happened without True Blood.

People Magazine caught up with the actor on Saturday, January 22 at the PGA awardsand he told them that his first check for playing Alcide as a series regular went to buying a custom designed ring for Audra:

“The first thing I did with my first check as a season regular is get together with my friend who is a jewelry designer and we co-designed an engagement ring,” he says. “And then my now- fiancée and I went on our trip to Italy and got engaged.”

Going to the Chapel

Now that the happy couple is engaged what about the wedding? While there has been no official announcement yet, they are close to setting a date and choosing a location. But one thing Joe is certain about is who he’ll be inviting—his cast mates!

“The cast will be invited to the wedding…I love them. They’re like my family.”

It sounds like Audra Marie is a very lucky woman being engaged to such a sweet and thoughtful man as Joe Manganiello! But he is also very quick to credit his fiancée who has been extremely supportive and cheered him on through this exciting phase in his career.

We here at TBN would like to extend Joe our sincere congratulations and best wishes to his bride Audra! And for those of you wanting to see more of Alcide Herveaux tune in to HBO June 12 for the season 4 premiere.
