Twilight Inspires Bizarre AND Dangerous Trend

rpatz927e.jpg

Back when hickeys were the biggest problem, all we had to worry about was teenagers wearing turtlenecks at weather-inappropriate times, but now we've got a whole new set of problems!

Teenagers have started a new trend, obviously heavily influenced by the Twilight phenomenon, where they will bite each other and then lick or suck the blood.

Here's what the medical advisor to Consumers Union, Dr. Orly Avitzur, had to say about this trend:

“These are kids who think they are real vampires."

More from Dr. Avitzur:

“If you think about it, there is such glamorization in those teen vampire movies, they make it seem so sexy and appealing and intriguing. It’s all mixed up with passion.”

Dr. Avitzur has referenced vampire-themed websites, where teens discuss their obsession. Here's what a whacked-out user from one of these sites, GothicGirl10, has said about her thirst for her boyfriend's blood:

“Having that thick, warm copper-tasting blood in my mouth is the best thing I can think of! Sometimes my boyfriend lets me feed off him. I let him feed off me as well.”

Medical experts have expressed concern about the risk of teens transferring blood-borne diseases to each other, including hepatitis and HIV, as well as the risk of infection from the bite wounds.

Teenagers out there - Please don't bite each other and suck each others' blood.

It's incredibly upsetting that the request above has to even exist, but this is NOT a cool trend. At all.

What do U think of this troubling Twilight-inspired trend?

Congrats, bb!

Becki Newton, best known for her character on Ugly Betty, is pregnant with her first child.

Happy news right? Not for NBC!

Becki has been cast in a new show for the network called Love Bites. The show was supposed to start its run come this fall, but because of her pregnancy, the show's been pushed back to mid season. NBC’s executive VP of current programming, Vernon Sanders, explains:

“She plays a virgin [in the pilot episode], so we have to make adjustments to that."

Uh, yeah! That sounds like a plan!

Lucky they are willing to wait for her. Close call!
