OpportunityNation Launches “Mentor Chat Series” with Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham

LOS ANGELES (April 21, 2011) – OpportunityNation, a campaign powered by the people to focus on the revitalization of the American Dream, announces today the launch of its “Mentor Chat Series,” which will allow the general public to engage with opinion leaders and successful industry experts. The series serves to provide tangible tools and advice to people as they pursue their dream career.

The inaugural chat will be hosted by E! News correspondent Michael Yo and feature “Vampire Diaries” star Kat Graham. The singer/actress/writer/dancer will speak about her experience breaking into the industry and the people and organizations that helped her along the way. After a string of guest spots and commercial gigs starting at age six, Graham was selected at 17 by the Coca-Cola company to star as one of the “Fantanas” in an international campaign to promote their soft drink Fanta. Keeping the importance of education in mind, she simultaneously completed her college degree in recording engineering during this time. Since joining as a regular on the hit series “Vampire Diaries,” Graham has continued pursuing her passion in music, recently completing a world tour with The Black-Eyed Peas and releasing her first single, SASSY.

Fans can join the conversation by submitting questions for Kat at OpportunityNation.org/MentorChats and watch the LIVE interview on April 26th at 1 pm PT to see their questions answered and hear advice on creating a path to doing what you love and overcoming adversities along the way. Question submissions will also be accepted during the live chat by tweeting them @oppnation or posting on the organization’s Facebook, Facebook.com/OpportunityNation.

OpportunityNation is working to build a multisector national coalition for a non-partisan agenda to enhance opportunity and economic mobility in America. Before their national summit in November 2011, they will be uncovering, discussing and debating the best approaches in education, job creation, community development, and healthy families to create an opportunity agenda for our nation and our communities. OpportunityNation’s vision is that every man, woman and child should have the opportunity to reach the American Dream.

Launched at the 7th Annual “Roots Jam Session” during Grammy weekend, OpportunityNation is the newest campaign of Be The Change, the organization that launched ServiceNation and the civilian military initiative ServiceNation: Mission Serve with First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and Mrs. Alma J. Powell.

Alright, darlings. Lets play a game, shall we? It’s a little game I like to call ‘Last One to Swoon is a Rotten Egg.’ Because to be honest: if your heart didn’t stop for a moment or ten – or in the very least, didn’t skip wildly out of kilter – at the sight of the scene that first greeted us in Episode 13, then quite frankly, dearest, you may want to go get your eyes checked. Because ladies and gentleman, Damon Salvatore is IN da HOUSE. (Please excuse my Kanye speak, people – I know it’s terrible. The equivalent of your nanna quoting PDiddy, really,  but moving on…)

The great thing about Daddy Issues was that it really did cover a lot of plot bases, from the Tyler-who-loves-Caroline-who-loves-Matt-and-Tyler-too-a-little-bit-sort-of triangle, to the epic ongoing tangle of life, unlife and love that is Damon, Elena and Stefan. Okay, so Bonnie and Jer didn’t get much of a showing this week, but it had been seriously noted by Julie Plec that their time was about to come soon – it just wasn’t this episode.


KTLA’s Sam Rubin caught up with Kat Graham at LA Live for a Pre-Grammy Event. Kat talks about Bonnie & Jeremy’s “make-out” scene and we get to see her perform her new song “I Want It All”. Check it out!


Here’s a video interview with Michael Trevino and Kat Graham at EW’s Pre-SAG Party courtesy of CW Source.


Part 2 of Zap2It’s interview with Kat Graham was posted last night, and here she chats a little bit about Bonnie and Damon…TOTAL SPECULATION on her part. So please check your “hate comments” at the door. She also discusses what Elena might think of a relationship between Bonnie and Jeremy. Please head on over to Zap2It to read the rest of Zap2It’s article after watching the video below.


TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross has posted yet another one of her video interviews with the The Vampire Diaries cast from her previous set visit. Here Kat Graham talks about how Bonnie really wanted Jeremy to kiss her, and that she was just trying to protect him from getting hurt. Find out what else Kat had to say!

Zap2it has posted yet another one of their interviews from their December set visit. This time Kat Graham chats about her Garbage cover of “Only Happy When It Rains”, and how that came about and then teases about her upcoming Janet Jackson cover set to release later this month. Can’t wait to find out what song it is! Check out the video interview and then head on over to Zap2it to read the rest of the article.


Here’s a little Jeremy/Bonnie/Luka scoopage to get ya to talkin’ via E!Online’s WWK Spoiler Chat.

@TooCool_2012 (via Twitter): Is Bonnie gonna hook-up with Jeremy or the new guy Luka? #TheVampireDiaries

Yes! That’s a pretty safe answer to your question because Katerina Graham herself just told us this about what lies ahead: “Bonnie does get a kiss.” So which guy will seal the deal? She’s not saying, but she did spill some other deets on Jeremy and Luka and the possibility of Damon and Bonnie (and the Delena fans go crzazay!), so stand by for more from Katerina soon. (For the record though, my money is on Bonnie and Jeremy. Care to wager?)

@caitlinems (via Twitter): Duhhhhh, anything on Vampire Diaries! Maybe a little more of Matt in future episodes?

I’m told more Matt is definitely on the way. You are welcome.
