Just when we thought we'd had our fair share of hoaxes for the week (or the year, for that matter), Twitter went into hyperdrive today when there was an untrue rumor that Kanye West had died. But, unlike the Bubble Boy mess, most celebs thought the Kanye hoax was no laughing matter. "House" star Omar Epps wrote, "BTW Joking or hoaxing about someone's (anyone not just a celebrity) death isn't at all funny or entertaining!" and Ashley Bell had a similar sentiment, posting, "People need to stop wishing death on people. It aint right!"
Of course, there was some good news in the entertainment world today. One of our favorite new shows of the year, "The Vampire Diaries" (check out the recap for the most recent episode), has been picked up for a whole season. Nina Dobrev (pictured) tweeted, "#theVampireDiaries has officially been picked up for the full season! Here's to continued success and congrats to my castmates! <3 u all!" And the series' co-executive producer Julie Plec told "Vampire" viewers, "Thanks for all the congrats on the back nine, everyone. It's because you watch and love that this happened."
