A vampire rivalry is brewing. Anne Rice, author of the popular 'Vampire Chronicles' series that includes 'Interview With the Vampire,' took to her Facebook page to knock the author of 'Twilight,' Stephenie Meyer. Rice said her vampires would "feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun," as the "Twilight" vampires do. She also knocks the fact that the 'Twilight' vampires remain in high school throughout the books. Wouldn't you know it, Rice's Facebook post has exploded. It has almost 9,000 "likes" and more than 1,800 comments. Most cheered her on, saying "Twilight is for kids, and the Vampire Chronicles are adult fiction." But another person said, "Cutting on someone else's success seems more than a little petty to me." The comments escalated so much that Rice stepped in to clarify that "there's plenty of room for a little humour in talking about the various interpretations." Rice isn't the first vampire author to knock Stephenie Meyer. In 2009, Stephen King said, "Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good." Which vampire author do you prefer? Rice or Meyer? Tell me on Facebook and Twitter!

Comedian and Vice magazine columnist Rob Delaney was not happy when he heard about reality star Kim Kardashian's divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. Now he says he's planning on suing Kim Kardashian, E! Entertainment, Ryan Seacrest, who produces the Kardashian TV shows, and Comcast, for "promoting their sham marriage," if they go through with the divorce. He's suing on the grounds of "polluting the airwaves of America and every other nation unfortunate enough to be subject to the disease of Kardashia." He says he's suing for $18 million, the amount Kim allegedly made off the wedding episodes. Although it definitely seems like a joke, Delaney insists it's not. He told Trending Now that he's against frivolous lawsuits and doesn't care about the money. He just wants Kim and Kris to stay together. We spoke to a lawyer who says the suit lacks merit, as Delaney didn't suffer any specific harm outside of being annoyed.
